    Fix for rear seat belt buckles rattling against the side of the car

    Just notice where the buckle lies against the plastic and locate your tape around that area. I think I used two strips side by side - each about 8" long. As long as the tape is black it is not noticeable.

    Regenerative braking setting in V. 2022.16.1.1

    Yes, this feature is not mentioned in the release notes in my car. So that begs the question why I did not get it? I have a 2022 Model 3 LR. It even has the faster processor.

    Regenerative braking setting in V. 2022.16.1.1

    And why would it apply only to "specific hardware?" And what does "specific hardware" mean anyway? - models?

    Regenerative braking setting in V. 2022.16.1.1

    i just downloaded v. 2022.16.1.1 and the release notes state the following: "Your vehicle can now automatically apply regular brakes for consistent deceleration when regenerative braking is limited due to battery temperature or state of charge. To enable, tap Controls > Pedals & Steering >...

    Another Model Y or go with a Model 3?

    Our first Tesla was a Model Y LR since we needed the space for the family and we were replacing a 3 row SUV. A few months ago I replaced our second car (BMW 535i) with a Model 3 LR. Since we did not need another car with the space of the Model Y, the 3 was an easy choice - cheaper, longer...

    Confused about "Enough Charge to Continue Trip"

    I guess if I were arriving at a destination that did not have any charging capabilities and the nearest Supercharger was some distance away, I would not want to arrive with less than 20-30%. Since my destination last night was my home and I have level 2 charging in my garage, I will use the...

    Confused about "Enough Charge to Continue Trip"

    The car had about half an hour to precondition, so I think that is enough time? I think the take away here is to look at the Energy graph and not wait until the car tells me I have enough charge to continue my trip.

    Confused about "Enough Charge to Continue Trip"

    We were coming home last night on a fairly short trip - about 150 miles. We started at 30% SOC and I knew we would not have enough charge to complete the trip. I entered our final destination into the Nav and the car routed us to a Supercharger (150KwH) along the route as I expected it would...

    Recommendations for body repair shops in northern NJ

    Mountain View does not do Teslas in the Ridgewood location - only Wayne.

    Mountain View Auto Body in Wayne, NJ. Did a great job.

    2 Model Y or Ioniq 5?

    The 3 is definitely lower and smaller, but that's what makes it a better driver's car - it is a tradeoff. There is certainly plenty of room in the front seats (I am 6'1") and enough in the back seats for the kids on shorter trips. The Y has much more cargo space and we use that car for longer...

    2 Model Y or Ioniq 5?

    I was in a similar situation. We got a MY LR back in June 2022. My wife and I both love the car and neither of us wanted to drive our 2016 BMW 535i X. We debated getting another Y, but I thought I would like to have something slightly different. We just received our 2022 Model 3 LR. My wife...

    Spotify "Unable to Log In. Please Try Again Later.

    Well I guess I can close this out. Not sure if this info will help anyone else, but I was able to log in with another ID and password. We have a Spotify family plan, so I have six separate log in IDs. Two of them worked in the Tesla and four did not. All the IDs work on other devices, so...

    Spotify "Unable to Log In. Please Try Again Later.

    So I picked up my Model 3 a few weeks ago and logged into Spotify on the car and it worked as expected. Yesterday I noticed I was logged out and tried to log back in, but I just keep getting an error message saying "Unable to log in. Please try again later." When I click on the "Sign In"...

    Still on software version 2021.43.102

    The version I have is version 11. It just does not have the most recent update that moved the user profiles and Supercharger icon back to the main screen.

    Still on software version 2021.43.102

    I picked up our Model 3 LR on February 18th. The car has version 2021.43.102 installed and no upgrades have been pushed to the car since I took delivery. Our Model Y has had version 2022.4.5 for a few months, so I wonder why we have not received the updated version. Am I just being impatient...

    Ford Mach-e

    i spent a lot of time considering the relative merits of the two cars and then asked a friend of mine to test drive the two cars with me. We started at the Ford dealership where I had an appointment for the Mach-e test drive. I checked in at the front desk and then we waited for 45 minutes...

    Ford Mach-e

    I had completely forgotten I wrote what Whatstreet quoted above about the Mach-e back in December, 2020. At that time I was in the middle of my due diligence on which EV was best for us. As you can tell from my profile photo, I have been a happy Model Y owner since June, 2021. I love the...

    Priority Device?!

    Has anyone figured out a way to have the car reliably recognize the correct driver profile when you enter the car? My wife and I share our car and I am about 7" taller than she. If she was the last to drive the car and I get in (by myself), the car will often go from "Easy Entry" to her...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Just released the hold on my M3LR and received a VIN immediately. EDD 2/14 -20. VIN is 164 so pretty confident I will get the AMD chip.

    I test drove Hyundai Ioniq 5 SEL RWD (short review)

    Relatively small cargo storage and wired Car Play (only) are deal killers for me. Don't want to have to plug my phone in every time I drive.

    How does phone app connect to the car?

    When parked at home I am having trouble sending commands from my iPhone to the car (MY). The car is in a detached garage about 50' from the house and the Tesla app does show under "Security" that my phone is connected to the car. However, when I send a command from the Tesla app it usually...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I have a M3LR on hold right now until 2/21. I have been lurking on this thread to gauge when to release the hold as I want to be sure to get the AMD and new battery. It seems like I would be safe to do so now? I guess the only concern is if they have a car sitting around that matches my...

    Fix for rear seat belt buckles rattling against the side of the car

    I actually ordered those and then cancelled the order after applying the tape. I figured they might not work well when the seat is lowered from the trunk.

    Fix for rear seat belt buckles rattling against the side of the car

    I have two kids and they are getting in and out of the car all the time. Keeping them buckled would be impractical.

    Fix for rear seat belt buckles rattling against the side of the car

    I am very relieved to have fixed the rattling noise that comes from the seat buckles on the two rear outside seats. When the seat belts are not buckled, the buckles sit between the seat and the plastic side of the car and rattle against the side whenever going over a bump. It drove me crazy...

    AMD Ryzen & 12v Batteries now shipping in US Y & 3!!

    That appears to be the case. I have my car on hold with Tesla and just waiting for some definitive evidence that I will get the AMD processor before I release my hold.

    Auto Wipers Improved with V.11?

    Wow. First time I have heard that.

    Auto Wipers Improved with V.11?

    Dare I say it? I just took my MY out for a drive in the rain with the wipers in "Auto" and I did not have to press the stalk or change the setting once!! I don't think it was perfect, but I could live with it. Anyone else tested wipers in Auto with V.11. How about auto high beams?

    Holiday Update

    Well they are supposed to be automatic now, so theoretically you should never have to push a button for them.

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    To me the worst part of the whole UI is wasting so much space on the left side with the image of the car driving. To me that is worthless and takes up way too much real estate. It seems Tesla devotes space to it for FSD, which (in my opinion) is a dream that will never come true. They can't...

    Poll on V11 interface

    I think your answers to the poll are too specific. None of the choices really captures my feelings about V.11. To me it is a mixed bag. There are some improvements, but some negatives as well. The blind spot video is really the only thing that makes this an improvement (in my opinion)...

    Idea for easier control of wipers

    Totally agree. I did suggest this here or somewhere else (don't recall). In any case, I think that would be great.
  36. JeffreyC

    Holiday Update

    You have to unselect all three of the options that show on the top right of the media bar - one is the sound setting. I forget what the others are. Took me a while to figure that out.

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    I think what would have made this update really useful is if they gave you the option to drag any control to the menu bar on the bottom of the screen. Right now it is only apps and games that can be placed in the menu bar. Why not give us the ability to have a button for the glovebox, rear...

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    But did you notice that the blind spot image on the screen overrides the Homelink button? So when I turn into my driveway (after signaling), I cannot touch the Homelink button until the image goes away.
  39. JeffreyC

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    One more problem I just noticed. The button to activate Homelink is now on the lower left hand on the screen - right where the blind spot image appears. When I signal to turn into my driveway the blind spot image overrides the Homelink button and I either have to not signal or wait until the...

    Ordering Model 3 after Model Y

    I don't get the logic here. I also plugged your trip into A Better Route Planner and see that the Superchargers for the trip are right next to the highway, so getting to them from the highway would not take long at all. Stating you would want to drive around the area near the Superchargers and...

    Coverking Spacer Mesh Tesla Model Y Seat Cover

    We do like the spacer mesh covers. They stay on with no problem and they do improve the ventilation - slightly. At least when I drive my daughter home from tennis practice or my wife has a hot flash there is no longer a pool of sweat all over the seat.

    Model 3 Seats Causing Excessive Sweating, any breathable cover recommendations?

    I put these in my Model Y and we are happy with them. They breath much better and have an opening for the seat airbag. https://coverking.com/products/2021-tesla-3-seat-cover?variant=40686174601378

    What did you sell/trade for your 3?

    I will pick up my M3 LR in a few weeks and sell my 2016 BMW 535i X. Had not planned to make the switch so soon, but with the price of used cars and gasoline, the timing is right. The M3 will join the MY we bought back in June. I really enjoyed the BMW, but neither my wife nor I want to drive...

    Steering wheel heat inconsistent

    I am starting to think that the heated steering wheel and seats are not even needed in this car. With my ICE BMW you need these things because you have to wait 5-10 minutes for the engine to heat up to heat the cabin. With the Tesla you get immediate heat and, even better, you can turn on the...

    Car not waking from sleep in the morning

    Now that cold weather is upon us we like to pre-heat the car in the morning. Problem is the the car does not easily wake up in the morning from the app. I see that my phone is connected to the car via bluetooth, but the car still does not respond to commands from the app. After a search i see...

    Heated Steering Wheel - Normal?

    Mine cycles on and off as well. I don't like it. Other cars i have owned did not do the same thing.
