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

    The $7,500 is a tax credit, not a rebate, you don't get the money back technically, It is only valid for the year you bought the car, it does not carry over. The legislation that would of made it carry over was not passed. You need to have owed $7,500 in Federal taxes before all deductions and...

    Model Year 2022 Refresh M3/MY

    I have a 2022 but no Ryzen chip, wonder if they will offer an upgrade for it? Also, how would we tell if we have the new 12v battery and front camera housing?

    Issue with Registration Fees and Sales Tax

    I was told repeatedly by my SA that they would transfer plates, when I came in to pickup my model 3 today they flat out refused to do it. They also only gave me a 3 day trip permit till the 26th and the DMV is closed till the 27th. I will be asking the DMV if I can transfer my plates and pay the...

    Issue with Registration Fees and Sales Tax

    Ok got an SA that looked into it. They are of the mind that I shouldn't be paying any registration fee at all because they will give me a trip permit and I should go into the Oregon DMV and pay all the fees there. They are going to talk with the Portland Manager and see if they can figure out...

    Issue with Registration Fees and Sales Tax

    Thanks, I sent them an email with all the info from the Oregon DMV and asked them to update my order with the correct amount. Will see if they do.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Good News: I got tired of waiting and saw a 2022 M3LR MSM with white interior popup in Seattle and grabbed it. Pickup on the 26th. Bad News: I am also having a battle with Tesla about registration and other fees. Called my SA and they had one of their "experts" from their titling team call me...

    Existing Inventory Decreased Range Banner

    I never thought of that but that could be it too. I wish, instead of a disclaimer, they would just display the actual range for each one.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Mine did the same but my original order date was October 15th.

    Existing Inventory Decreased Range Banner

    Yeah it just seems a bit strange. My SA looked up one and it said it was built October 2021...so why would it have an older batter? Maybe they just had a few dud battery packs that just didn't hold as much range and tossed them in since they were demo units?

    Existing Inventory Decreased Range Banner

    After my M3LR got pushed back another month I was just browsing the existing inventory and actually saw quite a few available. I called my SA and they informed me that the batteries in all these are listed as having been produced as early as 2017 so they might have a 12% range decrease but that...

    Is there a heating element inside updated (2021) steering wheel?

    Ordered the 14th, was ready by the 15th but picked it up on the 18th. Vin 107XXX. Heated Wheel, Auto-dim mirrors, dual pane windows, steering wheel metal scrolls all in. New Headlights? I haven't noticed adaptive headlights, battery upgrade, or a glove pack.

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    Mine has all the new stuff except the console (Mirrors, Wheel, Double pane windows). The center console update was in China and don't think they have brought it over yet. I have a 107xxx VIN. I think mine was an order that someone else placed but didn't have their financing done in time so they...

    Gravel-ish sound from wheels

    Thanks for that post. I'll be doing that to mine.

    Gravel-ish sound from wheels

    This is exactly what it was. I just got off the phone with Service and they suggested I take off the hubcaps and boom, no more sound. Glad its nothing dangerous but I do hope over time the sound goes away.

    Gravel-ish sound from wheels

    No, its been dry since I got it so its definitely not water. I'll post a video of the sound soon. I just tested with roll/creep/hold and it does it on each setting. Checked the net and its nothing like the sounds people have been posting on. Here is the sound 20210120_140322.mp4 Edit: It does...

    Gravel-ish sound from wheels

    This is my first Tesla so I'm a noob. I am not sure if this is an issue or not, that is why I am posting here to see if anyone else has this sound. When at low speeds, either reverse or forward, there is a gravel-type sound coming from the wheel area. Like I am driving on a gravel road. It's...

    Fyi, this morning I noticed under my climate controls that heated steering wheel appeared and it works great.

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    Yeah I made a comment how I heard today that heated steering wheels are coming in the next refresh and not this one. The rep delivering my car said "Yeah they don't have the software ready for it here yet but the mechanics are already in the wheel". He could of been lying too so who really...

    Please add 1/21 to manufacture date. Took receipt of mine today, zero issues with the car. My car shows 1/21 for manufacture date. I was told that while I do not have heated steering wheel right now that it will be put in the software and turned on at sometime in the future.

    Experian, Transunion, Equifax. Credit Karma will give you 2 of the 3. Still waiting on a reply from Tesla, hopefully tomorrow or Monday at the latest.

    Placed order on Thursday Jan 14th. Originally was a black interior. Local rep said they have a white interior available immediately, but failed to mention it was $1000 more. After finding that out I changed it back to black interior and today my VIN appeared and estimated delivery date is today...
