    Neverheard of that one....I'll give it a try. Thanks!

    Supercharger - Albany, GA

    Once you choose the supercharging part, the automated answering system refers you to the website or the service app. Years ago I reported a broken supercharger using the number actually printed at the SC station. That's a thing of the past now.

    Supercharger - Albany, GA

    The top of one of the stations blew off and was sitting on the ground. Looks like i wasn’t properly attached. I set it back on, but there is NO WAY to contact Tesla to let them know they need to secure/fix it. Since the stall is working fine for now there will be no equipment error condition, so...

    Confirmed open. I am here charging now.

    Does Tesla give loaners for service appointments?

    I did that once last year, and almost immediately got a canned response that said maybe, maybe not.

    Still not up. Looks so ready. No sign of life this afternoon.

    green light chime volume too low

    There was a nice thread a couple of years ago about the chime, and part of it was about volume. Joe mode was brought up the, but wasnt the problem then, and I don't have it turned on now. Good thought though.

    green light chime volume too low

    Just got my update with the green light chime. Works great, gave it a try this morning on various lights, sometimes I'm at the front at the light, sometimes behind other cars, sometimes left turns. All worked well. Love it.... Except...the volume is way to low for me. If I'm waiting for it, I...

    When will you get your title? For me, 7.5 weeks. Picked up MY at Decatur on Jun 8, got my title in the mail today. Should not have taken that long...DMV told me Tesla had not submitted all the information for the title as of the start of last week. Anyway, sharing this experience so you won't...

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    If I'm reading the current draft correctly, the battery requirement accounts for half of the $7500 credit. So a car with a battery substantially from China would qualify for a $3750 credit. But lotsa daylight between now and final bill, so better not for an amateur like me to pick at nits until...

    Supercharger - Albany, GA

    I was just there. It's in what anyone would call the WalMart parking lot, though it is in front of the other stores adjacent. As you face WalMart, it's at the far left (west) end of the parking lot. Right across the street from an IHOP...very clean restaurant. The SC location is the perfect...

    Supercharger - Fort Valley, GA

    Buc-ee's!!! What a perfect location...open 24 hours, perfectly safe location, cleanest restrooms in the country, LOTS to see and do, many food options. Perfect for a 30-45 minute stop, just right for a supercharging station. I've been waiting for this one for months after I read about the...

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Page 386, line 3. Exception to point 2 above: (2) FINAL ASSEMBLY.—The amendments made by subsection (b) shall apply to vehicles sold after the date of enactment of this Act. Subsection (b) is page 366, line 15: "the final assembly of which occurs within North America" So...it is not clear to...

    Quick control screen keeps popping up

    I had a video of it, showed it to the service advisor, but since they could not reproduce it they did nothing. Very, very frustrating when it happens I agree it is unsafe. I finally traded in my MS for a new Tesla last month; I hope the new owner of my car doesn't have that same problem. I feel...

    2022 Model Y Performance - Dallas to Austin Roadtrip*

    Driving at that speed will significantly reduce your range, so you'll have to negotiate the Waco SC stop and take time to charge there. For long distance road trips In a Tesla, the faster you go, the longer it takes.

    Trading in your Tesla? Be sure to factory reset! I didn't....

    They seemed to want to help, but since they don't have a Tesla account they have no credentials to enter for a factory reset. Evidently when it goes through auction/used car dealer the Tesla ownership is "in limbo" until a buyer gets it and sends proof of purchase to Tesla.

    Trading in your Tesla? Be sure to factory reset! I didn't....

    For me it was a several hour drive to the delivery center, i wanted the nav favorites for stops along the way and music presets to listen to. I should have done the reset when i arrived, before i spoke to anyone.

    Trading in your Tesla? Be sure to factory reset! I didn't....

    Traded in my MS for a MY last month. When I arrived at the delivery center, I went in, did the paperwork, and said I'l be right back because I wanted to do a factory reset. She said fine...well, I got in the car, and it wants your Tesla credentials to do the reset. Didn't work, it was already...

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Bingo. Without question. No searching for dealers that might keep their verbal promise for no markup on delivery, no need to get it in writing that they'd keep their word, no negotiating with the finance manager, no surprise "market adjustment" on delivery. I knew, to the penny, what I would pay...

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Interesting. I had the delivery fee ($1125, the order fee ($250), and a $75 documentation fee on my recently delivered MY. The local Ford dealer has a $1695 delivery/prep fee. Then the $20000 ADM. You're saying Tesla's model is similar? I agree with a number of your points, including the market...

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Well...went to the local Ford dealer this morning. They have an F-150 4x4 super crew Lightning on the lot for sale. ADM $20,000. Not a typo...twenty thousand dollars.

    Tesla’s map still says Q2 2022. Maybe they did forget it 🤔

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    The F-150 impresses me as a good choice for an EV pickup. My needs of a car with pickup truck utility and environmental responsibility are met. Compared with the Cybertruck, honestly either one, in the end, is a good choice for me. Debating the various differences is fun, but.... However! I...

    SOLVED: Homelink with Genie Intellicode remote

    Bingo!! I've been working all afternoon with my Overhead Door Odyssey 1000 (related to the Genie openers) with no luck, trying to link it to my new 2022 Model Y with the newly installed Tesla OEM Homelink kit. No luck. Frustrating... Then searched the forums, found this, and worked first time...

    Head lights not coming on when wipers are on

    What am I missing here? If different jurisdictions have different requirements, just make the automatic headlights with wipers an option in the lights control screen. But I’m at a loss why they don’t just have it built in, as many (all?) high end cars do. Mine do. Leaving this feature out is...

    You might join FB group Tesla Owners Club Atlanta. Friendly group, no drama, and probably a lot more long time readers/partipitants than this thread. They answer questions just like this. I suspect this thread is visited by mostly folks who dont have their car yet; the FB group is a lot of...

    I think a good purchase is a J1772 adapter. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've used the CHADEMO adapter (CCS isn't available yet), but I have frequently used the J1772, at hotels and businesses.

    All mobile connectors are still out of stock on Tesla's online store. Has anyone you talked to (if you can do such a thing) suggested a solution to mobile charging? I'm just wondering what people are doing now if they're getting their cars without any charging hardware. We picked our MYLR up 2...

    Questions for those that did trade-ins with Tesla

    Tesla's bid is good for 30 days or 1000 miles. After that you just update the info and they give you a new number. You keep your car until delivery day. We just traded our MS for our new MY; Tesla offered us almost as much as anyone else (and more than some), and with the tax advantage they...

    No mobile service in Georgia - anywhere else?

    Today I communicated with a Tesla service center in Georgia about scheduling a mobile service visit. Their response was, and I quote:' "mobile service for the GA area is currently shut down" Anyone have insight into this? Perhaps pandemic related? I haven't needed service that could be...

    Georgia/Atlanta Waiting Room

    I did not. Didn't check thread until I got home; Tesla is reported to dismiss any tire complaints anyway, referring you to the manufacturer. In any event, 8/32 is at the very low end of some new tire depths, so I'm not going to worry about it. Won't get the same when I replace them. Just...

    The MYLR I picked up last week had 19" Continental ProContact RX tires, BTW. All had 8/32 tread depth! Almost time to replace them I guess :(

    Walk up unlock, how do you know?

    After 30 wins in a row, and several national championships, and winning the game of the century, that's enough of a foundation to be among other fans and a new home team to root for...but always Hook 'em Horns. I wouldn't mind (and would prefer) if it unlocked when I am close by, as long as...

    Walk up unlock, how do you know?

    Does the Y do anything when you walk up and it unlocks? My mirrors don't unfold, no lights blink, nothing. Is there anything i can set to happen? For now i just have to try the handle to see if it works.

    Picked up today. Positives: the car was ready, zero problems, charged to 80%. Paperwork for the trade-in was ready to sign. The service reps walked by, stopped for some great conversation, congratulations, talked about the car. The delivery specialist helped my connect my phone. I wanted to ask...

    I'm picking up tomorrow. I'll post my experience, but having dealt with them for the past 6 years I'm expecting great things, even though the sales/delivery staff seems to change frequently. But with Ken and Gabriel still running the service center, couldn't be in better hands.

    Fixed it...took a phone call (20 minute wait, but not the fault of the people on the other end), and a wonderful advisor helped me out. Evidently since I had a trade in there was some final authorization from the trade in team. Fixed it in minutes, all OK now. Sure was easy to transfer a lot of...

    My delivery at Decatur is Thursday. App still won't let me pay, button is greyed out. Any ideas?
  47. Hookemhorns

    When can I pay in the app? Delivery fast approaching

    I'll do that...but the app does have a greyed out "start" button under "make your final payment" that says I'll be notified when to pay. Getting anxious about that notification. Update: just checked online, and it says to use the app.
