    What's happens if Tesla can't raise more money?

    Let me say first of all that I am rooting for Tesla's success all the way. I've owned a Model 3 for almost a year and love driving it. I also have my reservation in for a Model Y. But Tesla can't continue to raise money indefinitely, can they? What happens if the money dries up before they...

    TeslaCam recording when parked?

    This may be a dumb question, but does the TeslaCam record even when the car is parked?

    Auto High Beam not working

    Perfect. I fixed it this morning. Why would it be set up so you have to use the stalk as well? You’d think that enabling it under settings would be sufficient.

    Auto High Beam not working

    Auto high beam is a nice feature but for some reason it wasn't working for me while I was out driving on country roads this evening. I checked and it's enabled. I rebooted the system and still nothing. Anyone have any other suggestions as to what might work?

    Autopilot - positioning in lane

    For the most part, I'm happy with how autopilot positions me in the middle of the lane. I've had a couple of times when an 18-wheeler has been coming towards me and drifting towards the centre line and I wish the autopilot would position me more to the right. One thing you'll also learn, if...

    Inaccurate Speedometer

    I had Waze on while driving yesterday and Waze had me consistently 2-3 km/hr slower than my speedometer. I wasn't sure which one was accurate.

    Bike rack that fits a Model 3?

    How to turn off audio/radio?

    Choose the phone as your source instead. Unless you have something like Spotify playing on your phone, you won't have anything playing through the speakers and you won't have to hit the scroll wheel every time you get in the car.

    Winter tires - do 18" or 19" perform better?

    I'm currently driving the RWD with 19" sport wheels but I'm starting to think about winter driving in southern Ontario. Does it make a difference in terms of winter performance with 18" or 19"? I have a quote from a local tire store for Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 which would be mounted on 19"...

    Audio output turned into morse code

    Happened once to me too. Rebooting while driving took care of it. Strange driving with no gauges at all but now I know that I can reboot while driving without a problem.

    Wind noise seems somewhat obtrusive

    I noticed the wind noise at highway speeds from Day 1. I won't bother getting the Windshield Noise Reduction Kit based on other peoples comments.

    First day on the AutoPilot trial.

    LOL. Just got back from a week long road trip and had a few phantom braking incidents, especially driving over stretches of pavement that are black compared to the surrounding pavement. I’ve also had it brake suddenly when driving over a large shadow when in bright sunlight. Having said that, I...

    Audio (Slacker) crackling sound?

    It sounds like the same thing that happened to me yesterday with anything sound related in the car- music, podcasts, navigation voice. It sounded to me like someone clapping rapidly. I pressed both scroll wheels to reboot the computer/monitor and that solved it. It was fine the rest of the...

    Autopilot + merging lane = potential for some excitement

    It's also interesting when the EAP briefly starts to follow the car in front of you on the offramp of the highway, only to quickly jump back to the proper lane. Lots of decisions for the EAP computer to work through in a split second. All good points, but I wonder what EAP would do. Slam on...

    Callers consistently having trouble hearing me on phone

    I've had problems with the echo as well, but I saw that was a fairly common problem. This is more of a volume issue. People constantly saying they are having a hard time hearing me.

    Autopilot + merging lane = potential for some excitement

    I’ve just had the car for over a week but I was curious as to how the Autopilot would handle a merging/disappearing lane. After checking to make sure there were no cars beside me, I left it on Autopilot as the lane disappeared. It tried to stay centred but when it realized the lane was about to...

    Callers consistently having trouble hearing me on phone

    For some reason, I consistently have people telling me they are having a hard time hearing me when I'm speaking to them using bluetooth with my iPhone. I've never had this problem with my previous cars. I'm wondering if there is some way I can tweak it to make it easier for people to hear me...

    Reading speed limit signs

    My Model 3 had a deep gouge in it's front bumper at delivery so I was given a BMW X3 as a loaner while Tesla removed and repainted the bumper. The X3 did a great job of recognizing the speed limit signs which made me wonder if it has technology to "see" the signs and display them on the dash...

    Waze through sound system?

    With my limited experience with the car's navigation system, Waze seems to do a much better job or rerouting around traffic. I was trying to see if the Waze voice commands played through the car's speakers but I could only get them on my iPhone.

    Incorrect speed limit in navigation is messing up the Autosteer speed

    The area where I spend my weekends in the summer has a posted speed limit of 80 km/hr. The car's navigation system doesn't seem to know what the speed limit is for the area, so nothing is displayed on the screen and it defaults to 60 km/hr because the highest speed I can set for Autosteer is 70...

    How do you separate the Tesla charger?

    I feel like this should be simple, but I charged my car overnight with an electrcal outlet at my trailer and I can’t figure out how to disconnect the end that plugs into the outlet from the main component. I don’t want to pull too hard on it in case I damage it. Do you press somewhere on the...

    I wish Autosteer kept me a little more to the right of center

    I'd be happy with that. It also braked suddenly when I passed over a large shadow on the road. It's going to take a little getting used to it's quirks.

    I wish Autosteer kept me a little more to the right of center

    Just got my Model 3 and was trying out Autopilot this afternoon. If an 18 wheeler is coming towards me on a 2 lane road, I naturally veer slightly to the right. I found Autosteer kept me a little closer to the center of the road than I was comfortable with. I guess that's one way to make sure...

    Is this a J1772?

    So they had this one as well. I guess that’s the DC CCS. So we might have an adapter for that too?

    Is this a J1772?

    Once I get my Model 3 back (huge gouge in bumper at delivery meant sending it in to have the bumper removed and repainted), I’ll be heading up to an area on weekends where there is a serious lack of public chargers. I found this one today outside a Chevrolet dealership, through ChargeHub, and it...

    Brake squeal?

    I hadn't complained about the brakes making a noise, but they must have noticed the brakes squealing after I had to take my car in to have the front bumper removed and repainted because of a deep gouge noted at delivery. I got an email saying that they had corrected the brake issue at no charge...

    Any Issues with your Model 3?

    I've got a loaner BMW X3 while my Model 3 is in the shop having it's front bumper removed and repainted because of a big scrape in it. Other than the fact it's an ICE, what don't you like about the X3? I also learned pretty quickly that you have to press 3 for sales when phoning Oakville Tesla...
