    Ontario EVIP rebates update

    No, there was zero communication other than the automatic email reply when I submitted everything. I just happened to look in my bank account and see the $14,000 deposit.

    HPWC Self-Installation

    Not quite the same, but I installed a 100A sub-panel to feed my two EVSEs. This is essentially the same thing you could do but substitute the 40A and 60A breakers in the sub-panel for one 100A breaker. I personally ran a larger size aluminum wire instead of copper to the sub-panel since it...

    Model 3 3D Maxpider Floor Mats

    My Costco order arrived yesterday. Great fit and look very nice. I can’t believe how light they are compared to the weathertechs I have in my other car. So far so good....and can’t beat the price of $189 Canadian.

    Ontario EVIP rebates update

    When we bought our hybrid in 2017, it took them 8 months to pay us for the charger incentive. I have heard that things have gotten faster since then. I would expect 4 to 8 months for everyone to get their incentive.

    What do you think the Ontario rebate ending will do to resale value of EVs?

    I assume that cars will be treated as if people paid full price without a rebate. Since there are only a couple thousand that got the rebate and the price to buy new will be $14,000 more. To me, it doesn't matter what price the original owner paid, it matters how much the buyer must pay to get...

    Vehicle Systems are Powering Up

    This happened to me too about a week ago. Got in car and got the "Vehicle Systems are Powering Up" message. After 10 seconds or so I got the “Can’t maintain vehicle power. Vehicle may quit driving or shut down” message. Screen then went black and the A/C did some weird stuff. After about 30...

    I wasn't sure what thread to put this in, but I figured something out in the car that I think is pretty cool. I am sure that many of you already know this, but in case you don't..... If you are stopped at a red light or drive thru and you pump the brakes once, you will see the speedometer...

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    My wife really couldn't have cared less about me getting a Model 3. I've had it three weeks and she takes it as often as she can and is already talking about putting a deposit for the Model Y.

    3D MAXpider Mats for Model 3

    Just an FYI, I contacted U-guard to ask if they are going to get the Model 3 mats about two weeks ago. This was their response: "Thanks for your message and interest in our products. Unfortunately, these mats are only available in the U.S. at the moment. We are in the process of trying to...

    AutoPilot free trials coming!

    I mentioned something similar in another thread and some people got really offended that I had the audacity to say that autopilot wasn't worth the money and that other car companies offer similar features at a fraction of the cost.

    When you configured your Model 3, did you get Autopilot?

    The reason you gave was silly. If a few Pacifica’s stalling is your reason (I literally think it was four vehicles), then surely people slamming into stationary objects and dying should be reason enough not to get auto pilot.
  16. K

    When you configured your Model 3, did you get Autopilot?

    Actually Did you know that tens of thousands of Pacifica’s have not stalled on the highway and Chrysler recalled them to fix the issue? Mine hasn’t done it just like your Tesla hasn’t slammed into a fire truck or median at 100 km/h. It is not flattering to cherry pick information. You are...

    When you configured your Model 3, did you get Autopilot?

    Right... I was just stating that many people seem to believe that auto pilot is much more than that and that the few features auto pilot gives isn’t worth $7500 in my opinion. Which is why I didn’t buy it. Go Habs Go!

    When you configured your Model 3, did you get Autopilot?

    It is not worth $7500 to me. People are not dummies for spending that money if they think it is worth it. I spend a lot of money on watches and many people would never do that when they have the time on their phone. Some would even say I am dumb for doing it. But I enjoy them. Something is...

    When you configured your Model 3, did you get Autopilot?

    Sorry.....but I own both vehicles and drive them both....and I am not going to take my advice from someone that thinks a Pacifica is a GM. Also, I did not say they are the same. Don't get all butt hurt just because I said something even mildly critical of Tesla.

    When you configured your Model 3, did you get Autopilot?

    I did not order it....If Full Self Driving becomes a thing, then I will consider buying it. I think people over-estimate how good auto-pilot is.....which is also why there are so many negative articles about it when it doesn't work as well as the lofty expectations. My Pacifica has everything...

    Fuel Cost saving is actually 90%?

    Edit, this post pertains to Ontario, Canada data: Although the stated rate for off-peak is $0.065, you have to factor in regulatory and loss-adjustments as well as taxes. You can use the OEB bill calculator to figure it out for yourself, but for me, off-peak ends up being about $0.095 per kwH...

    I believe they don't say driver's license because if there are multiple owners on a vehicle (spouses, etc) then they will create a unique RIN for that couple. If only one person is owning the vehicle you can use your driver's license.

    Basically clay bar and iron decontaminating followed with polishing will make your car very shiny because you remove all contaminants in the paint and get rid of any clear coat scratches and swirl marks. Then ceramic will make shine even more, make your car hydrophobic and will provide a very...

    I have a few small issues: 1) Charge port door sits proud a tiny bit. it is really not bad but I will try to get it fixed. 2) The top section of the drive selector stock keeps lifting up a bit. Almost like it isn't snapped down enough or glued down enough. I can press it back down to the...
