    Moving to new house.. solar system sizing

    When looking at getting solar do not forget the value the panels add to your house value. The payback is not just dollars saved on your electric bill, but the value added to your house, as well as the tax credits.

    Blog Tesla Software Update Improves Speed Limit Sign Detection

    We have the opposite problem. When transitioning from 65 highways to 40 streets autopilot does not adjust the speed setting and tries to keep going at 70. I am basically having to manually set the speed 75% of the time since the last update.

    What started you investing in Tesla (@Jackl1956 thread)

    We bought a few shares years ago based on it being an EV company worth watching. After autonomy day my interest ramped up, and we started buying in on a monthly dollar cost average basis. Continuing to move money from bonds to Tesla as the risk level of the company reduces. We plan to hold for a...

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    No regrets. I trust it to do lane changes, and in the first month it prevented an accident that would have totaled the car. Idiot passed me on the right weaving between lanes. FSD aborted the lane change before I saw the car. I was doing 65, he flew past me. I like stop light detection, it makes...

    How’s the Y

    Picked it up 6/30 Love it. I will not be able to go back to a gas car. This is my first Tesla. The Y has been great in terms of cargo compared to the minivan we had before. I like the size. The performance is fun, the handling a big improvement. Autopilot/FSD has made daily drive an order of...

    FSD/AP saved me, and almost caused an accident

    This morning FSD/AP saved me from a bad accident. I was going 65 (speed limit) and had just moved past a truck enough to pull over to the right lane. I initiated a lane change on AP. The car started the lane change, then aborted and returned to the left lane as an idiot blew past me weaving into...

    What kind of Wh/mi are you guys getting?

    Most recent round trip: 47.3 at 241wh/mi mostly 65 on highway and freeway 90% autopilot. 910.8 at 267 wh/mi lifetime. A/C definitely was a drain when temps were in the high 90s

    You're suddenly well off, your lifelong friends are not. Now what?

    A friend of mine that aspired to a Tesla does have a hard time hearing about my Y. But, I have always made more than he does, and while it can get touchy at times, we stay good friends because our connection is not about money. If having money changes things then I would say they were not real...

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    it looks like that was a typo for “stunned”

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    Smart summon needs to show live camera feeds. There is no point in smart summon if you are in/following the car. The point is to have it come to you. If it offered live camera feeds, the user could monitor its operation.

    My new Tesla Model Y has 30% more usable cargo space than my 2018 Subaru Outback.

    There have been videos showing a bag of clubs sideways in the trunk by using the 2 side cubbies at the back.

    My new Tesla Model Y has 30% more usable cargo space than my 2018 Subaru Outback.

    “Crash tested dog care” unfortunately that is not an option for us, as they are too big for anything except possibly the Cybertruck. Saint Bernards are big. 54” crate.

    Supercharger - Sioux City, IA

    They are installing v3 in long distance locations. We got a v3 in the mountains on I-70 that will have very little local traffic. Of course it would have high numbers of vehicles on I-70. We also got a v3 in one of the local supercharger locations. Denver is certainly larger than souix city.

    To FSD or not..

    Yes. The standard is to be noticeably better than human drivers. I would say in some situations that is already true. Now it is just getting them all there. I think they can get to where most situations that is true soon. But, as they stated there is a very long tail. I would not be surprised if...

    You need 2020.12 to work with exFAT which is what modern computers can format. I am in the same boat.

    Charging habits?

    I just got my Y this past week, and want to set good charging habits. Do people plug it in every night, or wait for it to get low before charging? I imagined charging every night to have a “full tank” every day. But, now that I have it I am leaning toward letting it get low before recharging so...

    Issues with Model Y wireless phone charger

    My XS Max fits if I tuck it under the lip. I have a pretty thin case. My wife’s case is thicker, and does not work.

    Pickup Saturday

    Picked up mine today at the superior center. Nathan was great. No issues worth a service appointment (I am not that OCD about it). The hatch did not always close when pushing the button to close. They adjusted on-site. Pull tab does interfere on occasion. I may eventually get it adjusted.

    Pickup Saturday

    Pickup pushed to Tuesday, arriving late Monday.

    What kind of Wh/mi are you guys getting?

    It depends on the kind of driving and the driver. Some have posted under 200 average when most of the driving was city/surface. Highway driving is going to be higher wh/mi.

    Has anyone who got the 2-4 week text gotten a VIN/delivery scheduled?

    Just got a text that they expect delivery 6/25-6/28 and will reach out once it is built. I had given up on this month. Fingers crossed it has no major issues.

    Still waiting. Last weekend we got a text to say it would be 1-2 weeks. Fingers crossed.

    Is FSD worth to buy now for Model Y ?

    There are two reasons to buy FSD: 1) features today, 2) features coming in the future. You need to decide if 1bor 2 justifies the price. If you are financing the car at 2.5% (common rate right now) then it costs about $105/mo. To me 1 or 2 justify that, so it was an easy choice. Since the OP was...

    Financing Rates on Y?

    2.49 72 mo through Tesla. 730+ score.
  45. TechnoMage

    Has anyone who got the 2-4 week text gotten a VIN/delivery scheduled?

    If this quarter is like the rest, most of the cars are in transit to all reach their destinations in the last week or two so they can be delivered before the end of the quarter. I ordered in late March, still waiting.

    Model Y Insurance Cost?

    A large factor in auto insurance is medical liability. Tesla has much lower risk of injury, and lower accident rates. They do cost more to repair. But, get a quote with minimal medical coverage, and max to see the impact.
