    Apple Car apparently back on

    It will probably be glued in.

    I can no longer recommend Tesla. Their Service is the Worst

    The one time I needed service it was a great experience. It was something simple though (dislodged fog light after hitting some road debris). I used the app, took some pics and they said to come in a couple days later. I told the SC what happened, and they did it under warranty the same day. If...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Ford is just buying time and basically giving the shaft to their loyal customers. EVERY single HVBJB should be replaced period. Not waiting for them to fail, or better yet, fail out of the warranty. And aren't there are least 2or 3 people that have had the new one fail?

    Tesla App V4.12.0 Adds Tire Pressure

    Today I finally got 4.12.1-1271.

    Tesla App V4.12.0 Adds Tire Pressure

    Yep. Got 2022.20.9 a couple days ago. Still waiting on 2022.24.X. Hopefully by then I'll get the right app. If not, I'll go with the latest apk.

    Tesla App V4.12.0 Adds Tire Pressure

    Same, nothing yet on Android. If it takes too long, I'll try installing it using the APK assuming it's available. **It is available apparently(search on google for Tesla app apk), but will wait a little longer

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Yeah, it was obvious this 'journalist' had an agenda. Still, the Mach-E GT is a total joke above 60mph.

    I'm still waiting for 2022.24.x :mad:

    Having owned a Model Y would you consider the F-150 lightening

    It's one thing to have electrical or software issues, but Ford is having problems in areas they shouldn't be considering how long they've been around: 22S55 2022 Mach-E Recall: Rear Axle Half Shaft May Break Under Load (8/26/2022) | MachEforum - Ford Mustang Mach-E Forum, News, Owners...

    Having owned a Model Y would you consider the F-150 lightening

    This. Ford's is having quality issues with their vehicles in general. Recall after Recall on the MME, some very serious. And it seems the Lightning has a lot of electrical problems as well. Their service sucks and the management is worse. It's a real shame because the vehicles themselves have...

    Tesla App V4.12.0 Adds Tire Pressure

    The tire pressures in the app is something I wished for. Good to see it's coming.

    2022.20.8

    There was a navigation map update that came in as well. Tested the blended braking and it was smooth. Couldn't tell if or when the brakes were applied. The real test will be when the temps drop.

    2022.20.8

    Not sure if anyone posted this already, but blended brake/regen for the refresh S / X is coming in 2022.24.1 according to these notes: https://teslaupdates.org/update?version=2022.24&v=2022.24.1#2022.24.1

    2022.20.8

    I installed this last night, and the blended brake/regen option was available. Haven't had a chance a try it but I'm glad the 2020 models are getting it. Hopefully, everyone does.

    Mach-E beats Tesla Model 3 as Consumer Reports top electric vehicle for 2022

    I bet the Lightning will be CR's top electric truck: https://www.f150lightningforum.com/forum/threads/charge-station-fault-charge-fault-powertrain-malfunction-fault.11484/ https://www.f150lightningforum.com/forum/threads/powertrain-malfunction-reduced-power.11536/

    Mach-E beats Tesla Model 3 as Consumer Reports top electric vehicle for 2022

    The way they deal with every other concern. Procrastinate till there's a lawsuit or band-aid the issue till they feel like fixing it (if ever). The Lightning is already building up a nice laundry list of problems. The silver lining is they're going to sell a decent amount of EVs to help expand...

    My Model 3 had a stroke it seems like

    Glad they were able to track down the issue fairly quickly.
  18. john5520

    My Model 3 had a stroke it seems like

    Yeah, that treatment was unacceptable. Glad you stood your ground because I would not have taken it back before they fixed it either. As for the SA not passing on the info on the tech, that to me is grounds for termination.

    My Model 3 had a stroke it seems like

    Well, it looked like his fuse was shorter than yours 😆 He may not last too long there if they get too many complaints. The SC down here has a good rep. Friendly people. Yep, very possible.

    My Model 3 had a stroke it seems like

    I should not have laughed at your post, but I did. So, why were you nearly attacked?
  21. john5520

    My Model 3 had a stroke it seems like

    Going to guess it's a bad battery. At least I hope it's that simple.

    Recent road trip - experience with auto steer and traffic aware cruise control

    The fairly hard braking when approaching stopped traffic is something Tesla should work on. I'm not quite sure, but I seem to remember this being less of an issue in the earlier firmware releases. Sometimes I wonder if it's going to stop in time. One would think this would be a fairly easy fix...

    2022.24

    Great idea. For a quick view, the window is too small. Even a flashing red dot would be very helpful.

    It would be nice to be able to resize the blind spot cam as well, but I'll take anything I can get.

    Mustang E

    IMO, until the other charger networks catch-up, the best road trip EVs will be Teslas. With that said, there are people going on road trips with EVs of every type. It all depends on good planning and how much extra time you're willing to allow. Not to beat a dead horse, but the Mach-E has...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Informative video, thanks for posting. What stuck out is how badly designed the underside is to need special adapters to lift the car.

    Good to hear it's holding up. You're one of the lucky ones.

    2022.16.3 released

    I agree the goal is to release bug-free code, but @GtiMart summed it up clearer than I did. It's very hard to cover all scenarios. However, I do believe the major operational aspects of the car are very reliable. The UI, IMO, is a separate topic and shouldn't be treated the same as a firmware...

    2022.16.3 released

    After reading about the issues in other EVs, I have nothing but praise for Tesla's software engineers. But even they can't be expected to release bug-free code. There are always circumstances that are out of their control. For example, I've had my car for almost 2 1/2 years and I would consider...

    2022.16.3 released

    I had the same issue which at the time I attributed to a poor wifi connection. I waited a couple days and today it downloaded and installed with no problems.

    A dilemma about a Ford Mustang Mach E on Order - What would you do?

    I think you had your mind set on it no matter what, but you seemed to have gotten a good deal (financially), and you have a plan in case things go south. My advice would be to take it easy on the throttle till Ford actually has a fix that's proven, else it's a trip to the dealer for who knows...

    Elon Musk

    Well, he's trying to. I guess his bank account expressed its displeasure with the deal especially after looking at the stock market. There must be other worthwhile endeavors he can pursue other than wasting time, getting himself entangled in politics and social media.

    Chaos is an understatement. I also sympathize with them. Even the most optimistic guys are getting fed up.

    Mach-E beats Tesla Model 3 as Consumer Reports top electric vehicle for 2022

    Some owners are so desperate for the new part that supposedly fixes the recall issue, that they're willing to pay the dealers 2k (parts and labor) to get it installed. Imagine buying a 60k+ car with a known defect and paying a dealer out of pocket to fix it. Unbelievable.

    A dilemma about a Ford Mustang Mach E on Order - What would you do?

    All the Mach-Es with the same faulty part are equally likely to fail at some point. I would not trust anything Ford has to say in terms of percentages or likelihood of failure or even the actual failure numbers. So, you're playing Russian Roulette driving one of these long distances until an...

    A dilemma about a Ford Mustang Mach E on Order - What would you do?

    There are fundamental design issues with the Mach-E that Ford needs to address for it to be dependable. So, if reliability is important, look elsewhere. Maybe several years down the line it might be worth a revisit.

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Yeah, they said a month, but their main issue seems to be the number of modules and the order in which they're supposed to be updated. Overall, it's a miserable experience for many. They can get stuck and/or take hours to days to complete. And in between that time, the car can do crazy things...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Supposedly the software 'fix' is available at the dealers now. I've got my popcorn ready.

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Yeah, it's like they wasted their time since they totally botched the software, thermal and electrical designs. Lazy is right. Why put in the effort when your mega marketing machine can draw in the suckers by the boatload? Yep, quickly cobbled together and pray everything works, at least for...

    Plane crash at MIA caught on Teslcam

    Caught this on the way home today. I noticed the jet only after seeing everyone stopped on the side of the road. It was already on flames and the passengers were outside. I didn't want to stop as I figured the front / side cams would've recorded some of it. Little did I know I actually recorded...

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    The Rivian is about the same weight or heavier. It's just a lot more powerful. It is a tested 3-3.3 0-60 truck. Yes, people are going to be stoplight racing in these for certain. Watch the video from 7.20 or so.

    Ford recalls over 50,000 Mach-e's

    Some bean counter at Ford is probably getting their resume up to speed.
  45. john5520

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    I already see that it has the similar throttling issue like the Mach-E after a couple runs. So that's a bit of a downer right there but not surprising. Overall not bad, but considering the Rivian R1t does 11.6-11.7 in the quarter, I wouldn't call it impressive, but decent.

    Ford recalls over 50,000 Mach-e's

    I genuinely feel bad for owners like yourself caught up in this. As much as I'm a Tesla fan, if they pulled something like this on a car I own, they'd have to either replace the hardware, or buy it back. And if all else fails, I'll just sell it. For me, it's too much money to sink into something...

    Ford recalls over 50,000 Mach-e's

    Yes, Tesla isn't without its flaws and questionable practices, but the severity of the issue isn't exactly apples to apples. The Mach-E's problem leaves people without a drivable vehicle and I'm skeptical that an OTA can fix or be an effective band-aid. And that's assuming they can reliably...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    As people have been saying, seems more like a bandaid than an actual fix. And what about those cars where there's already some damage to the contactors but not enough yet to trigger the issue?
  49. john5520

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    You were still able to drive your Model S weren't you? Ford's problem leaves the owner stranded and can happen at any time. And correct me if I'm wrong, the Model S battery issue took years to develop. Ford had to have known there was an issue from early on as owners reported it for at least a...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    If I read the recent sales numbers right, KIA is close to matching the Mach-E in sales or might have beaten Ford. IMO, we don't need the Mach-E. Let's see how the Lightning does. If it turns out to be much better, I'll give credit where it's due.
