    Small paint defect on the hood

    I'm not sure if claybar can remove this, the defect feels dried into the surface. It's not like some random surface deposit. It looks like it's part of the paint.

    Small paint defect on the hood

    I just got my car recently and while wiping down the hood, noticed this paint defect near the middle. I'm not sure what happened but like some kind of hole there and they used some bad touch-up paint to try to cover it up? Is this something that could be fixable by the service center? Any...

    I think a good strategy is to get the normal gemini wheels and use the extra cash to buy second hand uberturbines. This way, you have two sets of wheels.

    Which service center is that? I'm also in SJ and they told me my only only pick up option was at the Fremont factory.

    Spoke too soon. Got my VIN assigned just now. I have 2 questions: The delivery window is set to the 5/20-5/21. This is incredibly close! I don't have time to get my financing together and the rep said if I don't accept the offered dates, I might be pushed back months. I have my tesla loan...

    Tesla is beyond ridiculous. I got a call from a rep yesterday to confirm my account information because he said I was so close to delivery. I asked him if he was sure since they keep on pushing the dates. He said he was confident. Today, Tesla pushed the dates to, get this, 8/11 - 9/22? What...

    Are mudflaps provided?

    Anyone know if Tesla provides mudflaps with Model Y deliveries in the bay area? I just want to make sure before I go ahead and buy a set myself. Thank you.

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    Thanks for the advice. I'm also in Santa Clara County. My neighbor's house is right next to mine so we are definitely at the same elevation. The installation by Clean Solar seemed pretty straight forward to me. They just mounted the Powerwall inside the garage, elevated about 3ft above the...

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    I need to post an update: This past weekend, my neighbor next door, who has the same house layout as mine, had Clean Solar contractors over. They were installing a Powerwall in their garage, mounted only about 3 feet above the floor. I still want to go with Tesla since they offered the best...

    Changing from Loan to Cash before delivery?

    I have a Model Y LR on order with a EDD of Sep 2022 (it used to be Apr 2022 but it got delayed). I don't have an assigned VIN yet. I just got approved for a loan from a Tesla preferred partner (turns out it's Wells Fargo Auto). I asked a service rep if it's possible for me to switch back to a...

    Front License plates

    I have a question: Will they drill the bumper and mount the license plate by default? How do you guys prevent them from doing this and tell them that you are going to provide your own license plate mounting method? Thanks.

    I made my order for a Model Y Long Range at the end of August 2021. Initial EDD was Mid-Feb 2022. Then it got pushed out to April 2022, now it's all the way back out to September 2022? Anyone experiencing this?

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    Project status update (just for the record and for anyone else who cares): Well, after my project advisor assured me twice that my 12/21 install date would NOT be occurring because of the design issue, the solar and Powerwall trucks still showed up. However, it looked like none of the teams...

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    Thanks for the anecdote. It did remind me that I do know from my design plans that my designer is named '*******' I see that he has a linkedin profile with a matching job description of PV Designer II at Tesla, started Jan 2020, although it would seem out of line to contact him in that fashion...

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    Thanks for the replies. Do you know if there is any way that I can connected directly to the designers? My project advisor has not been responsive at all to my emails and I don't feel confident that I can rely on him to relay my concerns/suggestions back to the design team. I would hate for my...

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    After a year of delays and 2 failed installation attempts, my third installation attempt was supposed to happen next Tuesday. They could not proceed with the 2 previous installation attempts because they found some flaws in the design plans on the day of the install. Curious to see if they had...

    Clean Fuel Reward drops to $750 after 11/1

    Not sure if this has been posted before but it looks like the Clean Fuel Reward will drop to $750 after 11/1. At the bottom of the Clean Fuel Reward site, it says: The $1,500 maximum reward amount is for vehicle sales completed by 11/1/21; beginning 11/2/21 the maximum reward will be $750...

    Installation in a flood zone

    I'm providing updates to my own thread here. Recap: my install was supposed to have happened last June. They came on-site but packed up after they found out that their design plans were not to code because I'm in a flood zone. They said they would draw up new plans and get back to me...

    My install price increased because Tesla changed from 8.16 to 8.5kW

    Thank you all for the advice. I had a couple conversations with a couple customer reps. As reported earlier, the first rep told me that I should expect the price increase because they increased the size of my solar install. However, I was later able to get a hold of another customer rep...

    My install price increased because Tesla changed from 8.16 to 8.5kW

    I got an unexpected email this morning that just said "View Your Design" when I was already scheduled for an install next Thursday. After logging in to my account, I found out that they increased the price of my install by around $700 because they changed my solar size from 8.16 kW to 8.5 kW...

    Does the gov consider the day you put down $100 as your order date?

    Thanks, I have one more question. I would like to put in a deposit ASAP but I'm still shopping around for a loan. Can I select cash payment first for now, then later ask my sales rep to change it to a Tesla loan instead? Similarly, if the car price increases in the mean time, will changing from...

    Does the gov consider the day you put down $100 as your order date?

    Just spoke to a customer rep on chat: He confirms that if the price goes down, I can take advantage of the lower price. If the price is higher, I will be locked in to the current price. I can change the options and color with no charge penalty. However, if I want to change the color but the...

    Does the gov consider the day you put down $100 as your order date?

    What if they decrease the price of the Model Y between when I placed my order to when I take delivery? Will they honor the new lower price or am I locked in to the higher price?

    Does the gov consider the day you put down $100 as your order date?

    Does the gov consider the day you put down $100 as your order date?

    If place an order for a MY but don't take delivery, do you guys know what does the gov consider as your purchase date? My questions is, if the infrastructure bill passes with EV credit but it is not retroactive, can I delay my order until after the bill passes, or do they consider the day you...

    Can Tesla renege on the Solar Loan Agreement?

    I finally acquiesced and accepted their new terms. I then asked the PA to send me their updated designs so I can review it prior to installation. He ends up sending me the design document for another random house (that I do not own). The saga continues.

    What did you mean by 'placed order'? Like you put down the initial deposit, or you have accepted the design for the solar panel placements?

    Can Tesla renege on the Solar Loan Agreement?

    I apologize for another rant. I would just like to document my experiences. I tried calling customer service (888-518-3752) at 3pm yesterday but was told by the automated line that their business hours were between 7am-2pm pacific time, which I thought was somewhat of an unusually inconvenient...

    Can Tesla renege on the Solar Loan Agreement?

    That's good to know. I haven't seen the loan contract yet. Does the loan contract come after the purchase agreement? I signed the first revision of the purchase contract back in early June and never received a loan contract afterwards.

    Can Tesla renege on the Solar Loan Agreement?

    Just posting a follow-up (spoiler alert: they can't honor their contract) My PA told me to call their financial operations department (877-973-7652) to see if they could fix the contract. I have no idea why she is telling me to make the calls when it is their mistake to fix in the first place...

    Tesla Solar 10-year loan, 10% down, 0.99 APR

    Thanks for the screenshot of the doc. I have a couple questions if you don't mind: What is the actual name of this document so that I can request it from my PA? Was the document from Tesla Finance or another bank? How soon did you receive the document after letting them run the credit check...

    Tesla Solar 10-year loan, 10% down, 0.99 APR

    Do you mean the Solar Loan Agreement? If so, that document only says that my system "WILL be financed" but that document does not say it's a 10-year, 0.99% loan or include any loan specific terms.

    Tesla Solar 10-year loan, 10% down, 0.99 APR

    I got a green credit check approved notification on my Account page the next day but I never received any loan specific documents stating the loan terms (note I'm also waiting for installation).
