    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    $600 on Craigslist. Honestly, I was just looking for 18" wheels that fit. These came with 235/50r18 (vs OEM 255/45r19), and are 2.7% too small. (the Ford hubs are also 70.4mm bore, so care must be taken when mounting). I will replace with 235/55r18 Blizzak DM-V2 or X-ICE SUV when they wear...

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    If you mean going to "Controls > Autopilot > Autosteer (Beta)" and slide to off... we have not yet turned it on(!).

    Any info about software versions 2021.43.xxx appearing on new vehicles?

    Did anybody have this 2021.43.xxx software, and then get an update to 2022.x, and then notice a change in phantom braking coincident with that upgrade?

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Another 2021.x user here: 2021.43.102 (on a 2-week-old myLR). Did a 475+475 mile trip , with 355 miles of freeway then 120 miles (2.25 hours.) of 2-lane road at the far-end, then the reverse order coming home. We were using only TACC (no AP). We had zero problems on freeway or divided...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I went once to say "I've heard that if I screwed up my profile, I won't get a VIN" and they looked it over and said everything was in order, and the EDD would not be kicked-out due to anything I did. So, that helped calm my nerves a bit. At the time (about Jan 1) I had an EDD of 1/18-2/15...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I live 10 miles from the SC, so I drove there every time I wanted to check on delivery. I didn't have any problems, but there's only a handful of SAs that work the desk, so they can't pass the buck as easily.

    Any info about software versions 2021.43.xxx appearing on new vehicles?

    Similar story. Took delivery a week ago, with 2021.43.102. We were hoping to get an update before this weekend's 1k mile trip to snow country, 50% on 2-lane roads (I wanted the heated wipers. And I still had hope that phantom braking might be reduced). I've been relocating the wifi mesh to...

    carry a hitch receiver in case of rearwards tow?

    Yeah, being pulled is no different from rolling down a steep hill (like westbound I-84 near Pendleton OR). However, unless Neutral proves a clutch to decouple the motor/generator, being pulled will transfer energy into the car. So I think the car needs to be in a state where the energy goes...

    Phantom Braking- how to deal with?

    When you see a semi approaching, cover the gas pedal with foot, and when the car beeps, hit the gas. Meh. We've driven the same 7.5 mile stretch between our kid's town and the interstate four times. Had 10 braking+beeping events. Not particularly hilly, all during the daytime. Speed...

    carry a hitch receiver in case of rearwards tow?

    Sorry, I should have said "rearwards winch", such as if you spun-out on ice and ended-up nose in to the ditch and the tow truck needs to drag you out of the ditch before loading. But if you have a tow hitch, you may want to reread the manual. The rear tow eye is not available for some...

    Ride quality is softer than our Bolt, even on the 19" wheels. We miss the 360-degree backup view, and the camera rear-view mirror, but the improvements are worth their loss. Range appears good, but isn't really important to us around town (even a 30kwh Lead did fine there). We'll have our...

    Looking to buy/take over your Model Y Reservation

    I'm kind-of skeptical that you can take over someone else's build at your reserved price. Never heard of that. You can definitely follow Discord and grab an inventory mY for _today's_ price: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/tesla-inventory-discord.256928/ We were able to bridge a gap...

    PC 9/11, blue/black mY-LR-5 noFSD +Tow. I got my delivery yesterday 3/1 (171 days)! It's a bit muddy here, so I took a gallon of windshield washer fluid and a set of floor mats to delivery, so I had mats in the car before stepping in :) .The car is beautiful! Passenger front door is about...

    Could Tesla crash fatality be due to "sudden braking"?

    Tesla driver died, but the people in the cars that hit him were uninjured? Teslas are very protective. I wonder if he had unbuckled his seatbelt (e.g. due to a medical emergency). I don't think there's enough actual info here to come to any conclusions, even speculative.

    carry a hitch receiver in case of rearwards tow?

    I have a tow hitch. I believe the manual says that for Ys with hitch, you can't use the Tow Eye in the rear bumper, but must use the tow hitch instead. It seems like it would be hard to hook a tow truck winch hook into that, especially without scratching-up the bumper. (?) People with rear...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    A few weeks ago I picked some dates in the past, and then looked at the Teslike spreadsheet to see when VINs had come-in. It was fairly evenly distributed over a 6 week period. There was an "average" number of days, but it was "plus or minus 21 days", so there was a huge spread. There's a...

    Nope, $18k to be the only IT staff for a Childrens/Science Museum. This was in 1994, when Windows For Workgroups did not even include TCP/IP yet. (you had to install Trumpet Winsock)

    order vanity plates before/at delivery? (MN)

    I want to order some custom/vanity plates. I think part of purchase price in MN is to pay for plates, and I'd rather only pay once. Do people go to the DMV and order custom plates using their VIN before they take delivery? Or do something special at delivery?

    Just sold my Model Y - Parting thoughts

    We haven't picked-up our Y, and I've got the 18" wheels and tires already waiting. I'll put those on an hour as soon as I get it home. On a road trip, my wife likes to knit when not driving. My impression is that good road-feel is helpful & fun for the driver, but rarely for the passengers...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I have a friend who bought his first house, then the day after, went and got his first new car. Car loans are pretty easy. If you can delay until after you close on the house (unmatch the Tesla?), that may be best. Still, I got laid-off a couple weeks before I closed on my first house. I...

    Just sold my Model Y - Parting thoughts

    We're also looking at possibly trading our Y for an off-lease Buzz (which is probably in about 3-5 years). Similar for us, we spend summers camping. A camper conversion would also interest us. If we jumped, it would probably be before the Tesla warranty expired.

    Just sold my Model Y - Parting thoughts

    Similar for me... my hometown is 295 miles from a service center. I am there once a month. I have AAA Premier. I can get a tow 200 miles to a hotel, then another 100 mile tow the next day from the hotel to the Tesla service center. Obviously pretty inconvenient, but at least the cost is...

    I got a phone call from a human! Delivery was scheduled four days from today. A human called to say it's delayed due to weather... but only by one day. I've driven to the Tesla shop twice now to ask a question. But now I have an SA phone number saved. BTW, do they usually stock Mobile...

    Why didn't the car go into Park Automatically here?

    For fun, I just tested this in our Bolt. When in R, pulling the door handle engages e-brake (but not P... car stays in R) When in D, pulling the door handle does nothing (!). You have to pull it twice to get it to open, then door opens and e-brake engages (but stays in D). This is slightly...

    Different deductible for new Y?

    I think I've had 3 claims: my partner scraped a garage frame in '97, slid on ice and low-speed rear-ended someone in '98, and then a near total when I T-boned someone who ran a red light in '99. So I'm not really expecting to make a claim. We found that if your kids have a permit, but no...

    Different deductible for new Y?

    I didn't mean I'd assert "at fault," (technically only the cops decide that) but if I hit a stationary object, then I can't pin the blame (and cost) on anyone else. I had an experience with a Passat: VW uses a set of three aluminum "dog bones" (short linkages with ball joint at each end) on...

    Why didn't the car go into Park Automatically here?

    Is there a valid, safe use-case for driving with a door open? (My farmer grandpa used to open and spit at intersections, but not when moving). I saw a minivan going down the street with side door open and it looked horribly unsafe. I also talked to a Tesla-approved auto body shop mechanic...

    Home exterior 240V Downtime Question

    240 volt circuits get a bit of a bad rap in the US. In most of the world, every extension cord is 200+ volts. I have a 20a 240v circuit running over a 50 ft extension, to a 16A EVSE. I'd suggest using a GFCI breaker. And make the connection in a "weatherproof extension cord connection box".

    Different deductible for new Y?

    Thanks, I checked and our state has $0 windshield with any comprehensive. About suspension, I thought hitting a big pothole and cracking your rim and bending a linkage was also "an at-fault accident". I wasnt thinking about simple worn ball joints.

    Different deductible for new Y?

    We have purchased insurance with a $1k deductible for many years. We are about to add our upcoming Y to our insurance, and I wondered if it needs a different approach. For example, is there a higher chance of needing repair for (say) the glass roof during the first few months of ownership? Or...

    Well, it did bump out, but only to 2/26-3/2. We get 12-14 days of shipping time in MN, so to hit the _end_ of that, I'd need a VIN between Wed and Fri. So... I think it's happening, and I'll get a VIN tomorrow or Tuesday. Looking at the spreadsheet, I think I'm already in 66th percentile...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I figured that as we approach end of quarter, March orders may get swapped: VINs for east coast that would be ready in late March would get moved forwards to 1hMarch, giving time to get them on a train. West Coast VINs that would have been ready in early March get pushed out to 2hMarch...

    September 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    A bunch of east-coast people were pushed to June (probably to get Austin builds), so it's interesting that it looks like you in Houston are in March. Either you are early in Austin ramp-up, or they've decided to give you a Fremont build.

    “Dumb” cruise control?

    I do a monthly drive with a 4.5 hour stretch of 2-lane, both coming and going (it's a 1k mile trip). If I slowed from 65 to a random speed between 65 and 40 each time there was an oncoming semi (maybe 400 times per 1k miles?), would the small increase in risk of getting rear-ended outweigh the...

    I've read that you can disable the auto-highbeams by pressing the left stalk forwards... but you have to do it after every time you re-engage TACC (!). But I see other Teslas on the road flashing high beams every 90 seconds while driving around the metro, so I either this isn't common...

    Congrats on not getting pushed-out this time. It seems weird that they are giving you a new window that starts in just 3 days, yet you don't have a VIN yet (?). I have 9/11 Profile Complete, so I'm watching what happens to others with same day. Looking at the Teslike sheet, it looks like...

    For Sept orders, it seems like the 4 week EDDs often drop to a subsequent 2-week EDD which is either within the last half of the original 4-week, or even later. (My 2-week EDD only overlaps my old 4-week by 4 days). If you window was <14 days (like 10 or 11 days) or if you have a VIN, then...

    And it's not on the Chevy Bolt, which has been a big problem. An hour into a snowy car trip, you pull the stalk for the windshield washer, and get a spray of fluid over the window... and the wipers don't budge. If it's cold enough, maybe the fluid freezes into a solid translucent sheet as you...

    Got my first 2-week window. I know others have had multiple 2-weekers, or even been kicked-back to 1-month window 😞, but this gives me hope that I'm maybe 10 days from VIN (give or take 7 days). That would be 149 days from OD to VIN, and I think I'm kind-of in the middle (compared to other Sept...
