    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    I've been driving the same "test course" near my home since I bought the my S. I run it after every update. The software I had in the summer of 2018 was the best. I could run the entire distance without autopilot disengaging. The current version will try to "center" itself where it thinks the...

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    Call your local TV news. Maybe they'll put you on air. Make sure you have a copy of your window sticker. It may be the only way to get Elon's attention.

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    ?? Not 3/4 years ago it wasn't. More like $110,000 after rebates. There were more options back then, and most of us couldn't resist. Also, all this discussion about price; *I* just want Tesla to live up to the terms of their warranty.

    $1k? Maybe if they're buying them at full retail from Best Buy??? Check the price of a Samsung Chromebook

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    The hardware that Tesla installed in my new Model S, in 2017, was junk when it was installed. This was a decision Tesla made. (even the MCU2 "upgrade" is certainly not state-of-the-art). Tesla must be held accountable for the decisions they make. BTW, my iPhone 6S Plus (cir. 2015) still works...

    It's obvious that FSD will NOT work properly with MCU1/HW3. Don't be "afraid", demand what you paid for.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    This is yet another reason I won't do the conversion. My current screen is flawless (just lucky I guess?) and I want ot keep it like that. It's becoming increasingly obvious to me that MCU1/HW3 is not a viable FSD platform. So either Tesla will install MCU2 in all FSD cars or buy us out. The...

    Sentry Mode/Dashcam recording USB for AP3/MCU1

    Just use the builtin format tool. View on Windows using Open with > Windows Media Player. Works great. Format the same as with MCU2

    San Antonio-Dominion Service Center

    I used that SC last summer. I was in a bind, needed to leave town but my Autopilot system died. They gave me a loaner while they sent someone to Austin to pick up the part I needed and had the car back to me in a day. They were great, and I was a walk-in, had no appointment.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I moved from AP2/MCU1 to AP3/MCU1 and did notice some differences. It seems they tweeked process priority a bit. E.g. When the system is busy, my volume controls stop working for a few seconds. Before they just slowed down a little.

    Blog Tesla Announces Stock Split

    Well, a stock dividend and a stock split are different. Computing the basis of the new shares can be interesting. It just seems like a strange way to do it. Why not just do an ordinary stock split??

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    But none of this explains why they would refuse to configure the software if the owner has already installed the new digital tuner. I do hope and expect that Tesla will change their mind on this eventually.

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    When you pay six figures for a car, you expect a little more. Paying $2,500 for an "upgrade", that is certainly not state of the art hardware, and removes previously purchased features is not something that's going to make me all giddy. My fanboy days are over.

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    But they DO support it, same radio, same MCU. They are just singling out a certain class of owners for non-support. I'm certainly not going to "hack" a car still under warranty and with unlimited Supercharging.

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    "then we're stuck with this situation"?? Really? Is Tesla some kind of omnipotent force? We don't have to just lie there and take it from Tesla. They are in a very highly regulated industry and it seems they are just begging for more regulation. Perhaps Tesla is doing us all a favor by...

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    Are you being intentionally dense?? My car came from the factory with a working radio. *I* would install a new Tesla radio in my own car without any "help" from Tesla. All I need them to do is restore my car's original functions by setting software to recognize the radio, like it did before the...

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    Try to keep up. The PROBLEM is that Tesla won't let you keep your radio even if you do it yourself using THEIR parts. There are laws in this country about that kind of behavior. My hope is that when and if this comes to attention of Tesla's general counsel, the policy will change.

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    This is clearly false. I could install a new digital Tesla radio before I arrived for that upgrade and they STILL won't do it. This is pure Tesla arrogance and almost certainly (my car is still under full warranty) a court case.

    2020.24.6.9

    I don't know why I install these updates anymore. This one knocked back the autowipers to about a year ago and my car can no longer handle a road that I've been using to test it since I bought the car back in 2017. It could drive this road almost perfectly back in late 2018. And now summon won't...

    Because I have another year of full warranty. My question to you: Does your fandom have any limits?? Or is it some kind of abusive relationship?

    That's impressive. Perhaps it will outlive the B-52 or the B-52s?

    Does anyone think MCU1 is fine?

    I won't get it. It's typical Tesla arrogance that they would propose an "upgrade" that removes options that you paid for when you bought the car, and then offer no other solution. This is similar to how they've striped options from the new S. You take what they offer or forget it. I've owned my...

    To confirm an active infection, virus particles must be found in the nasal, throat, lung secretions. Antibodies will only give you information on exposure.

    Yes, testing for antibodies will not tell you the current state of any possible infection, you must "see" viral particles in the patient. This is done by taking samples from nasal and lung secretions.
