    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    I am curious why did you still buy the car with the yoke.

    2022 model x plaid Can i control the rear video with the front screen ?

    Good to hear that. I hate to blow your bubble. While you are driving and the episode the kids are watching ended, the only way to move to another episode is to turn around (hopefully you have autopilot on) and touch the rear screen to move to the next. You cannot control video while driving on...

    2022 model x plaid Can i control the rear video with the front screen ?

    You may try setting up on the front screen instead of on the rear screen. Once set up on the front, the rear will show the same APPS. My issue with the system is it is very quirky. I had to buckle in as driver, step on brake and go on hold. I then have to turn back and start the program on the...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    My experience is when it gets closer to your appointment date, someone will review your request to determine if that can be handled by Mobile Service. They will then switch you to that. I live within 10 miles to 2 SC. It may be a different scenario here. 6 months into ownership, I still hear...

    Adaptive Ride Control Disabled

    Sounded like your car was assembled by a team of experimental monkey workers that Elon is thinking of switching at Fremont.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I think the fobs may be left over inventory from the old days. They finally exhausted them and stop providing. You probably will not miss them too much. As for the brake, it may need some breaking in as with any fresh brake pads. In my case, my Model 3 brakes are more firm than my MS LR. May be...

    At gun point, hand them your phone, fob, wallet if demanded. It is not worth risking your life for a car.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    It is pretty standard they put more on paper. It should not be anymore than that. They sometimes have to move the car around and will add a few miles.

    Very nice.

    Another example of the world's worst customer service

    With deductible, I just paid for the chip windshield repair instead of claiming insurance.

    Another example of the world's worst customer service

    Does anyone have any claims experience with Tesla Insurance? I switched from AAA to them because AAA's high cost to insure Tesla. I hope I don't have to file claim with Tesla but wonder what it would be like if I do have to claim.

    AAA is not cheap. I think you meant "not cheap".

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    With the suspension on low, the bottom of the front lip will get scratched sooner or later. There are some dips on the streets around I live (for rain run off). Going over them at a speed faster than a crawl would hit that bottom. I just won't crawl under and look. Out of sight out of mind.

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    I agree. I put a little sticky bumper above the wiper button so that I won't accidentally turn it on. I still can if I need to by putting my finger below it and press. The yoke is not that bad.

    New Model S Plaid Ordered!

    Does your wheel come with the cover or you took them off already?

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    At least they inform you instead of letting you find out later and reject it.

    Another example of the world's worst customer service

    Sorry. Did not notice the car is out of warranty.

    Another example of the world's worst customer service

    Better yet. They call a towing company for you and they will take care of the bill. That's the least they could do.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I had my wife's 2019 Model 3 tinted including the roof because it is a continuous piece of glass. When I took my MS Refreshed to tinting, the installer (another one) said he would not do it because it is very difficult to tint. So I just tinted the window and back. I don't feel I need the roof...

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    For those who considered the yoke stupid, what does it say to those who spent over $100K for a vehicle with this stupid design? Don't they know what they are buying?

    New Model S Plaid Ordered!

    My 2022 MS Refresh is my 3rd Tesla and I must say I had no significant quality issues with any of them. I do not look for perfection. I don't care the car costs $100K or $300K, I am putting it on the road, parking it in SuperMarket parking lot and getting blasted by sand or rocks on the freeway...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    When you are spending $150K for a new car, it better be perfect when you pick it up. There shouldn't be any imperfections. Unfortunately many Tesla fans are very forgiving. That encouraged Tesla to continue to put out imperfect cars. I must say if you are looking for a perfectly made car, you...

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    When I got my Audi S6 with flat bottom steering wheel, I thought it was odd but quickly adjusted to using it. 5 months ago I got my MS refreshed with yoke. It is odd but I am getting comfortable driving with the yoke except for the stupid horn position. I even like the turn signal buttons which...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Tesla as a company does not care about customer satisfaction although individual staffs have variable helpfulness and professionalism. That has been my experience for being a customer since 2014.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Don't know why they still give out the fobs. I got 2 and they have been sitting in the drawer. May be for someone who don't carry cell phones. But then why no fobs for Model 3 or Y?

    With a big price difference between the 3 and S, they better be looking different.

    What does the refreshed taillight do that is worth retrofitting. Does it really look very different?

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    The problem is he is not held accountable for what he said or lied. That enabled him to just make up anything he wants and got away with it.

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    I think he was just confused or not listening carefully about the question. Out right lying is stupid and he is too smart a person to be this stupid.

    Here is what inspired Elon about the yoke. Unfortunately he forgot the middle part is the horn button.

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    My count is at least 5 since I took delivery in February. 5 lucky incidents that there were no physical contacts. 5 unintended windshield wiper turn on. If you only have one car, i.e. the one with the yolk, maybe, just maybe eventually you will unlearn hitting the center airbag and change your...

    2021 LR Rear Wheel Damaged and Needs Replacement

    Just curious. Did you buy one and how much it costed? Anyone had the Tempest wheel repaired (for curb rash)? I wonder how much to repair it.

    How to clear warning message?

    It may take a couple days for the car the learn the new configuration.

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    That was not my intend to tell someone is wrong. The horn is created as an alert to another vehicle that their action might cause an accident such as someone backs out of a parking without checking oncoming traffic, making lane change without paying attention etc. Unfortunately the horn is being...

    2016 MS Interior Color Change

    Agreed. I quit the TMC a couple years after I acquired my first Tesla because discussions became too personal and mean. When I came back recently, I found majority discussions are friendly and informational. I wish we could keep it that way.

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    Human cognitive response after using center horn for decades is to hit the center. That's the problem. Brake is also applied but if you cannot stop the person from continue to move to your path, braking might not prevent the bang. Another quirky design that bugs me when moving better an Model 3...

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    Once again, another near miss. A woman went into a right turn lane and decided to change her mind and pulled back . I had to move to the lane left of mine while trying to honk her. Instead, I turned on the wiper, again! Luckily there was no car to my left. Stupid design.

    2016 MS Interior Color Change

    There is a leather paint you can buy. Never used it, however. I think they still put leather in 2018. Now it is all Faux.

    Going from 2017 Model S to 2022 M3P, any downsides?

    That's for sure. I cannot open the cooler lid wide enough to put in a gallon of milk because the trunk of the M3 is so shallow.

    Moving from Mercedes E450 to Model S

    I went to the Lucid show room to look at one a couple days ago. The truck is very low and small. You have to use the "well" if you need to put a cooler in. The interior can match a MBZ or BMW. I also walked by a Tesla showroom, sadly it is empty. No cars to show. I am puzzled why they maintain a...

    Moving from Mercedes E450 to Model S

    Tesla is a hands down looser when it is compared with MBZ for build quality and comfort. If autopilot and speed is not a priority, stay with MBZ. It is hard to beat a German car for driving experience. My MS LR has cracking sound coming from somewhere since day one. I have same issue with my...

    Model S Yoke Horn Confirmed

    May be Elon was not lying. May be he is ignorant about his products. May be the thought he was talking about Space-X yoke. LOL.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Despite all the horror quality reports, mine is near perfect. I wash my car myself and if there is any fit and paint imperfection, I would notice. None found. Of course most on the forum report issues and few would take time to say they have a perfect delivery. So, it is a hit or miss if you get...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    After reading repeatedly the horror quality stories for brand new Tesla, I still cannot imagine how a car manufacture could allow and deliver defective products shamelessly. If they even have a QC Officer, that person should join the unemployment line. We paid over 100K for a car like that...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Plaid is a grown man's toy who can burn 40K without blinking an eye. Others spend hundreds thousand for an exotic car for their look, for their sound and for the badge. There is no justification needed.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    It is not worth dealing with Tesla for tire services especially you are talking about daily pumping air. Tire store can fix it either free or around $25 if it is a nail not in the side wall. Unfortunately if you get one in the side, you are looking at a new tire and Tesla will say you hit a...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Many car companies make you pay for the floor mats. It is nice for Tesla to include them. But many owners end up buying all weather rubber mats anyway. They should consider making the mats optional to cut down waste. I have a few sets still in my garage collecting dust.
