    Trip from NYC to Cape Cod - Best Superchargers to stop at?

    ABBR suggests Seekonk MA and I concur. Seekonk is a V3 and it's at a Neon Marketplace which has nice bathrooms and a number of decent food options including brick oven pizza.

    Can't move blind spot camera display on Model 3 with FSD Beta

    I can't reposition the blind spot camera display on my 2019 M3 AWD, was that feature omitted from the FSD Beta releases?

    They've finally turned it on.

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    No change as of Saturday. Everything is in place, why is National Grid holding this up.

    Camden Dropped from the Supercharger Map

    We don't stay overnight in Camden, we drive up for the day and come home after dinner. Until Covid is gone we don''t stay in hotels.

    Camden Dropped from the Supercharger Map

    Because Camden is a destination is why it needs a Supercharger. Freeport sucks, I hate using it. When we go to Camden it would be preferable to just charge when we are heading home then having to stop at Portland on the way up and on the Way back as we do now.

    Camden Dropped from the Supercharger Map

    Camden is no longer shown on the Supercharger Map. That's an area that desperately needs a Supercharger, why have they dropped it.

    Supercharger - West Lebanon NH

    I hope this doesn't end up like Tyngsboro which has been waiting months for power. This is a critical site, without it it's not possible to travel to large parts of Vermont.

    Pick a hotel that has destination chargers.

    Are the old chargers still working? I'm going to be in that area on Sunday.

    Supercharger - Kennebunk, ME (I-95 NB and SB service plazas)

    The subject was people using Superchargers instead of charging at home. I quoted the Maine Supercharger price vs the Mass home price. Roblab was claiming that Superchargers are busy because people are using them instead of home charging. I disputed this especically in the case of the Kennebunk...

    Supercharger - Kennebunk, ME (I-95 NB and SB service plazas)

    There is no such thing as off peak in Mass. It's a fixed rate. There is National Grids piece which is 14.6 cents per KWh and the supply charge which for me is 10.5 cents, that's 25.1 cents. Don't know where you are getting a 44 cent number from.

    Supercharger - Kennebunk, ME (I-95 NB and SB service plazas)

    Kennebunk is in a service plaza on an Interstate, nobody is charging there who isn't traveling. It costs 41 cents per KWh at Kennebunk vs 25 cents at home in Massachusetts. Not only does it cost much less to charge at home then it does at a Supercharger it's also vastly more convenient...

    Supercharger - Kennebunk, ME (I-95 NB and SB service plazas)

    The Superchargers at Kennebunk South were almost all in use yesterday, it's time for them to add more. They are in the process of adding more CCS chargers there, two new ones are waiting to be turned on, Tesla should add some V3s.

    Supercharger - Meredith, NH

    V3 Superchargers don't share power so the numbering doesn't matter.

    Crack in rear glass

    My 2019 Model 3 has a crack in the inside of the rear glass. Tesla is quoting me $788, it seems to me that this should be a warranty repair because it's clearly a design or manufacturing defect. Glass shouldn't crack on it's own. I haven't called Allstate yet because I think this should be out...

    Tesla CCS1 combo adapter

    That's good to hear for those of you who have new Tesla's, won't help me because mine is a 2019.

    Tesla CCS1 combo adapter

    Where did you get a CCS1 adapter from?. Tesla hasn't released theirs, the only one I've heard about was a crap Chinese adapter that doesn't work.

    Supercharger - Sturbridge, MA

    Sturbridge is awfully close to Charleton, not particularly useful. However in looking at the Supercharger map I see that they have one planned for Vernon, hope it will be next to Rein's Deli.

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    There were no bollards blocking the Superchargers and no signage saying that the Superchargers aren't online, they really should have a rope or something to indicate that they aren't ready yet.

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    Looks like it's ready to go, they just have to turn it on.

    Supercharger - Saco, ME

    Let's talk lobster rolls. Red's really does have the best conventional lobster roll, I thought it was just because they don't gunk it up with mayo. You get the butter and mayo on the side. There must more to it than that however. A few weeks ago we went to Bounts Clam Shack in Warren RI. They...

    Are Neon Marketplace chargers slow

    I was alone. These are supposed to be V3s so even if there were other cars it should have mattered.

    Supercharger - Portland, ME

    Noise. Electric lawn mowers, snow blowers and leaf blowers are much quieter than gas equipment, you don't need hearing protection to use them. They also don't require any maintenance and they start immediately. I'd just have extra batteries, there is no reason to charge them on site especially...

    Is a Model 3 with the squeak safe to drive

    My 2019 M3 AWD developed a squeak on Saturday, it happens at low speeds and when I turn the wheel. I'm guessing it's the well know control arm problem. My appointment is a month away. Is the car safe to drive? Is it just a lubrication issue or is something broken. I'm not having any handling...

    Suspension service near Westford?

    How long did it take for them to replace the control arm? Did they do it while you waited or did you have to leave the car?

    I have a 2019 Model 3 AWD with 20K miles on it. I'm also hearing a squeak when I turn.

    Suspension service near Westford?

    My car has developed a bad squeak. I've tried the home remedies that I've seen on Youtube, i.e. removing the hubcap and cleaning the brake and wheel, driving backwards. That didn't help. I've tried to make a mobile service appointment for tire rotation, brake cleaning and I added that I had a...

    Are Neon Marketplace chargers slow

    Spent the day in Rhode Island today and charged at both the Seekonk MA and Warwick RI Neon Marketplaces. The peak rate at Seekonk was only 115 and at Warwick 148. These are supposed to be V3 Superchargers but the rates were V2. The temperature was warm and the car at plenty of time to...

    Supercharger - Saco, ME

    I went to Camden yesterday. There is a Hannaford right at the border of Camden, it would be a perfect location for a Supercharger and I'd lay money on this being the site when they finally do it. I don't object to a Supercharger in Saco, if the pandemic dies down a bit there is a great...

    Supercharger - Saco, ME

    Saco isn't particularly helpful, there are Superchargers at the Kennebunk service plazas and in Portland. I really wish they would concentrate on Route 1. We are going to Camden tomorrow and I hate having to stop at Freeport, that's the worst location in New England. Camden has been delayed...

    Bad news on Camden and Middleton

    I'm very unhappy about this. The Freeport Supercharger is my very least favorite place to charge, the lot is cramped and the bathrooms are so far away that you risk getting idle charges.

    Bad news on Camden and Middleton

    I wrote to Neon a several months ago, they said that they are putting Superchargers into Portsmouth. Don't know if their plans have changed since then but their intent was to put them in there.

    Supercharger - Richmond RI

    It's not on the Supercharger map and the guy who submitted the application appears to be a ordinary electrician, not a big company. I'm betting it's just a destination charger for the use of the owner of the store.

    Supercharger - Richmond RI

    Are you sure these are Superchargers and not Level 2s? On the permit it says the estimated cost is only $30K, that's a factor or 10 too low for a Supercharger.

    Thinking about model 3 coming from a 392 hemi

    As long as you can charge at home your effective range will be greater than it is with your gas car. My last pure ICEV had a 5.7L Hemi, on road trips we did just as many stops as we do with my AWD Model 3. With a gas car you have to go to the gas station once a week, with an EV you never have to...

    Newport RI area chargers

    From Conn there is a Supercharger in New London which is just across the border from Westerly RI, I was there on Saturday. It's a V3 so the charging speed was great however the bathroom is on the other side of the mall which is a bit of a hike. From MA there is a new SC in Seekonk MA and a...

    Supercharger - Falmouth, ME

    I'd much rather they put a Supercharger in Bath. I hate the Freeport location, it's cramped and it's a long hike to the bathrooms in LL Bean. Bath is the gateway to Boothbay and Georgetown. Falmouth is really close to Portland. The Portland site is well laid out and the Hannaford is convenient...

    Windshield Replacement Advice - Boston Area

    BTW, for people with just a chip, SafeLite can fill it instead of replacing the windshield. I've had this done, for a chip they can come very quickly and they get it done in about 30 minutes. I don't notice the repair at all. You should call them as soon as the chip appears, you don't want to...

    We need that CCS adapter soon [Volta installing EV charging at Walgreens]

    Walgreens doesn't have bathrooms, at least I've never noticed one in a Walgreens. A fast charger location without a bathroom is unacceptable. As for the CCS charger. I want one eventually but it's far from critical right now. The current CCS network is pathetic, I would not want to own a CCS...

    Has there been an update recently

    Haven't had a update in weeks, I'm on 2021.44.30.5. I've seen mention of a .10 and a .15, are those for non-FSD-beta cars?
