    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    It sucks. But I've never seen my wife that angry at something I didn't actually do.....

    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    Not even close size-wise. Mach-E is a non-starter. My issue wasn't the 12v, but even more insulting. A corrupted SD card....but wait.....it's mounted behind the MCU and can't be accessed or troubleshot by Rangers anyway. But when it dies, the car behaves similarly to a dead 12V, because the...

    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    I think I'm going with the Volvo hybrid, and will closely watch what Rivian does, since I have an R1S reservation. If they invest in service for Northern New England, I'll come back to the BEV world. If they don't....well, I can't have a vehicle that's going to strand me over something that...

    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    I moved from MA to ME in May. My 12v died Saturday for the 2nd time in 10k miles/8 months. In a parking lot. On a 90 degree day. With a toddler. It took 4 hours for roadside to show up, and another hour for them to get it on the truck, because my x would not go into transport mode. With that...

    Lowest Drag Cargo Box Suggestions?

    Yes, push it back as far as I could. You'll still see the shadow while driving, but it's out of the way of the cameras. I mostly used it in winter, so the range hit was worse. Expect lots of wind noise though.

    This will be our new 95 bypass down to Farmville.

    Supercharger - Charlton, MA (I-90 westbound service plaza)

    4 years, the state did not let Tesla put superchargers along the pike, because they did not want to show brand favoritism. Maybe in order to place superchargers here, the state made Tesla build out the infrastructure for some level two charging.

    Supercharger - Maple Shade, NJ

    for my use case (and many others' I'm sure), won't need Maple Shade anymore once some of the ones on the Turnpike go live.

    Supercharger - Charlton, MA (I-90 westbound service plaza)

    aaahh, we're packing up and moving to ME full-time, but the wife's family is still in Central VA. That's going to be a 14 hour slog from now on. I MIGHT....just have to fly. But I don't like any of the rental car options once I'm down there.

    I wonder if the other MassDOT controlled locations (Newton and Lexington rest areas) are next?

    Supercharger - Charlton, MA (I-90 westbound service plaza)

    My use case for this one is probably 4-5am on the way from Maine to Virginia, so it's unlikely I'll have to deal with a full lot.

    I'll be closer to the Paris Autobarn. So I won't be totally "lost in the woods" for maintenance.

    New Service Centers Coming To The Northeast!

    I'm moving from the suburbs of Boston to Maine at the end of the month. I hope Mobile Service is dependable....

    Supercharger - Littleton, MA

    Ramped up to 110. Immediately dropped down to 95, stepped down to mid 80s after 50%. I'm here doing my part, giving them data to fine tune it with, but I wouldn't call it v3 just yet. 🤣

    Supercharger - Littleton, MA

    If MA treats their rest stops like NJ does, we may not see the individual permits, though. Might just get a blanket project plan.

    Supercharger - Littleton, MA

    Cool, My SoC is currently under 50 and I need to go to Market Basket later. I have the 200kW max pack, let's see if I can hit it.

    Not bad, but the permit was approved back in August of last year. Definitely a little lag time there

    Looking like it's live. I'll have to stop by later.

    The supply chain is so messed up right now, and that was before the Suez this week.

    Transformer and meter are in. Looks like we're just waiting on Tesla to come out.

    LELD is on site right now, looks like they are working in the transformer, can't tell if they're doing a meter as well

    Supercharger - Littleton, MA

    This one might happen sooner, rather than later. the town of Littleton has their own electric co-op, so they won't need to wait for national grid for the meter and sign off.

    Supercharger - Littleton, MA

    lol, I swung by there about 12 today, but didn't take any pictures. The crew is busy, and I don't like taking pictures of the workers without asking.

    Supercharger - Woburn, MA

    The Feds changed a few years ago how they prioritize the signage. If you're over 35 years old, there is a time where 128 was more prominent on the signage than 95. We can tell where you're from, how old you are and/or how long you've lived here based on your observation.

    Maybe it's new that they've started charging. For a time, I remember seeing somewhere people weren't being charged there.

    It's 44 miles between littleton and seabrook... Just how fast are you going?

    Supercharger - Williston, VT

    considering the South Burlington supercharger is one of the ones that doesn't charge people (Healthy Living covers the cost of electricity), I'm going to go with not a coincidence.

    Has anyone got updated map?

    everyone on the FSD Beat supposedly has newer maps than we do, so it's possible we'll all get a map push before FSD goes live. Not sure if they'll get the exit numbers in there, though.

    Supercharger - Williston, VT

    Whenever we're allowed to cross the border again, this one will be quite useful for getting into Quebec with some electrons....but the current one in South Burlington has good snacks inside the grocery store.

    Cold weather stopping all charging... Not sure how to deal with this.

    I did the same, but by then I had a Raven X, so I was pretty sure it actually was a button. I use it all the time now. LOL

    Cold weather stopping all charging... Not sure how to deal with this.

    My AP1 2016 S didn't have it. weird.

    Cold weather stopping all charging... Not sure how to deal with this.

    also not on older Teslas. this one is only within the last year and a half or so.

    Cold weather stopping all charging... Not sure how to deal with this.

    Not in an older Model S......

    How to deal with Model X width?

    You get used to it. I mean, I haven't driven it through the North End of Boston yet, but if I can get through the ATM drive-thru down the street from me, it'll go anywhere any other car needs to go.

    But when backing up and swinging the car around, that part of the wheel is at least useful to slide through your hands....

    Cold weather stopping all charging... Not sure how to deal with this.

    I bet it's cold-soaked. Run the heat on high or put a supercharger as your destination into nav and you'll probably get some of that range back

    Heat pumps are ok down to about 25F. Anything below that and they tend to struggle without a backup heart source.

    It's been updated for about a week now. It's accurate.

    word is that it won't be retroactive, so it'll just be the "next 400,000", following the effective date.

    We're renovating the 3 season home we already have in Norway, over in the western foothills.

    Supercharger - Charlton, MA (I-90 westbound service plaza)

    I live a few towns away now, and my parents live in Hudson. That SC is one of my 2 local "Oh S***" chargers if I won't quite have enough juice to get home. Once we finish the move to Maine, the Hudson SC will be about the right spot for a stop (180 miles, ~ 2 hrs 45 min)
  43. ModelNforNerd

    Supercharger - Charlton, MA (I-90 westbound service plaza)

    For now, this one is too close for me to hit on my way south/west....but once I move to Maine, it might become my first stop. A much better option than Auburn

    Charging keeps restarting

    I have a November 2019 build, and it needed to be replaced at 13 months/12K miles, so sadly, yes, it's possible.

    Charging keeps restarting

    check your 12v battery. that's what solved it for me. not a software update.

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    interestingly, still buried in the fine print on the Rivian website for the R1S: After launch, we’ll announce the timing of our 250+ mile and longer range R1S, also with seven seats. that might actually cut into Tesla's sales. (I can think of at least one potential future X sale in jeopardy.)

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Important, and not being discussed as much: the heat pump. Winter efficiency will be much higher.

    right? didn't they JUST clear their name on the unintended acceleration claims?

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Coming from 2018 P3D to a 2020 X, the stereo was quite a disappointment. Still better than most other cars I've ever owned, but I felt for the $, it should be better than the 3's. Cool that they've fixed THAT, but the rest is pretty underwhelming.
