    Car drove without phone or key card!

    My car also locks before I step on the porch(about 10 feet away)....and my phone seldom unlocks my car, until the third tug at the drivers side doorhandle(but that is for another thread)

    Walk away lock: Is there a way to leave a person in the car?

    Yep, I am 99% sure this is expected behavior. My son has had this happen to him a couple of times when I went in to grab a coffee and he unexpectedly tried to open the door, or has been slow to leave the car after we get home(and it has already locked).

    Anyone else wish you could adjust lane placement?

    Yes, I wish we could have some control over lane placement. I often drive in the far left carpool lane, and typically skeyw towards the left side of the lane, since I have a much better view, and judgement of where it is located. As has been mentioned, some forms of lanes splitting is allows...

    Model 3 - Volume Change When Turning Wheel

    I wish that I had the option to disable the left thumb scrollwheel when turning the wheel, as I let the wheel slide through my hand, I constantly am changing the volume.

    AP Changing lanes into adjacent vehicle

    TL: DR If the "hump" on the San Mateo bridge caused issues with NoA, we are in trouble for any short term FSD. I am pretty sure that there have been thousands if not tens of thousands of trips over the San Mateo bridge in Tesla's so far. While not every Tesla would have been on NoA or have FSD...

    Disappearing Bluetooth Door Locking Radios

    I have never paid attention to the BT radios(I guess I better start) but my Android Nokia 6.1 on 9 is not automatically opening the car/waking it up nowadays. It works maybe once automatically for every 4 times I have to get my phone out of my FRONT pocket, unlock, open the app, and then click...

    Rumor: Model Y to start shipping to employees in two weeks

    "Typically" there are not discounts for employees. There have been several times when employees get free FSD on a new purchase. I have not heard if they have any such incentive for the Y.

    Driver seat sometimes not returning to saved position

    Yep, I had not seen this in the first 2 weeks of getting the car, but the recline portion of my Profile has not been engaged in 2 of my last 3 entries. Everything else is fine, my seatback is just in the Easy Entry recline, so I am looking up at the ceiling. I have moved it back into position...

    Anyone From TN Buy Used Tesla from Tesla?

    That is similar to us "locals" who have to pay $1,200 destination fee when we are driving it off the Factory lot. It is what it is, and it is the way that the "price is the same for everyone"

    Camera miscalibrated

    Are you talking about the display of cars around you in the "car card" or an actual camera view that you are looking at? I find that the car display is super scary, and would do more to push me away from FSD than push me to buy it. While at a busy intersection, our entertainment is to watch...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    I know I should not be, but I continue to be amazed at how differently we are all experiencing the "same software on the same hardware". My Automatic wipers have never come on, even though I have had limited vision to require manual wipers 4 times in the last week. One time I received the error...

    Will Elon give Autopilot free for 2018 or early 2019 buyers

    See what Carmax/Carvana will give you for your car and see about getting a new car with all the bells and whistles including FSD!

    A question for No. Calif. delivered Tesla 3's: how long to receive plates?

    Still waiting 14 days so far...

    Are test drive cars tuned slower?

    I find it "unique" that they would have a completely different build of every version of the software just to allow people to go 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, but limit them to a top speed of 85. It was my understanding that the Top speed limit software available on all Tesla's is supposed to not only...

    Morning warmup taking battery power while plugged in.

    Mine does not drop that far, but when I turn on Climate to warm up the car(Northern California, so 40-50 degrees out) my charge typically shows "5 mins to full charge" no matter how long I have it going. That means(to me) that everything that I have on is pulling more than my 32a 240 circuit is...

    About to purchase 2019 M3 AP Question

    LOL,yeah. A Brand new 2020 model LR AWD(basic) would be $48,990(plus the $1,200 destination and taxes, etc) without FSD. Even with FSD that only goes up to $55,990. If purchased in Jan 2019, they got the $3,750 Fed rebate, and if in CA, they got $2,500....so they are trying to MAKE money on the...

    Are test drive cars tuned slower?

    The 90D and 75D have the same 0-60 times(4.2 s)..the only differences that I know of is range, and top end speed. I am not sure anyone on a test drive would notice the difference between a top speed of 140 or 155. They can limit the top speed, but this also puts the car into Chill mode, and I...

    my mockup of carplay on model 3 display

    The only thing I would be interested on that list is the Tire Repair kit, so selfishly, I am glad that they are not including all the other features/items which would not be any use for me. Phone and key cards are fine for me and I have no garage door opener. I am pretty sure there is a large...

    Console organizer?

    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M9TW43M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00 Is the one I got. It works well enough. I have to decide what "emergency" supplies I want to store under it, since there is still room underneath it

    In another thread, they suggested going to a site in the browser which uses the 'Sign on with Google credentials". The suggestions were Medium.com or this site.

    Autopilot question

    Yes, Autopilot(Standard on all Model 3's SR+ or higher) includes Traffic Aware Cruise Control(TACC) which allows you to set your follow distance from the car in front of you and it also includes Autosteer(currently in Beta) which allows your car to use the lane markers to center itself in the...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    My complaint is exactly the opposite, it increases it's speed by about 1 mph per second. Today I turned from a 25 mph road onto a 45 mph road, and 5 seconds after turning, it was only up to 30 mph. I was embarrassed, so kicked off TACC and floored it to get up to speed. Yesterday on a freeway...

    Yep, wish I had bought some stock when I decided to buy the car. It was obvious by then that they would hit their 100k quarter. Oh well.

    That is only for people who have intentionally signed up for TeslaFi, which includes the currently "scary" requirement to give them full access to your Tesla Account(either via a Token, or your username/password) While the token seems "safer" it is an API token, so gives full control to your...

    Just got 50.7. Kind of surprised due to all the doom and gloom in this thread. I fully expected a .8 push before the weekend. Will see how it deals with commute traffic on 800 on AP. I guess that will determine whether I wave, or flip the bird to the factory as I drive past!

    Autopilot Acceleration too rapid

    How long is your car delaying? As with the "Ping pong" on Autosteer, I wonder if different people are seeing different timings? Yesterday, I used AP in stop and go traffic and could get a "one one thousand, two" at each light. Before I counted to see how long it was, I was kind of freaking out...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    Except in this case it seems it was a patch(.50 with new visualizations) which was pushed from the top come hell or high water. The "Holiday edition" was going to ship no matter what state it was in. Unlike the usual, slow roll-outs spreading across the fleet, TeslaFi showed 1 user on 50, then...

    I just got my Model 3 and use AP for about 50 miles today( I had put in about 150 miles during an earlier overnight in Mid-November) mainly freeway speeds, but some 2 lane local roads. I did not see any ping ponging, I also was very impressed with the smooth curves. There were micro...

    Removing Adapter + J1772 From Charge Port

    Thanks for starting this post. I use a Juicebox 40, so I also have the j1772 adapter in use. 1) The first time I unplugged, they both came out at once. Yay 2) The second time, I unplugged the J1772 and forgot I had a tesla, so had to manually pull the adapter our. 3) The third time, I unplugged...

    Yes it is... TeslaFi.com Firmware Tracker is what I use to see what the fleet looks like software wise(though it does not tell what each version does, and does not cover every car. It gives a good insight into the roll-out I believe

    Autosteer oopsie

    I actually saw both of these behaviors on my drive today. In one intersection, it started wandering to the right(where there was another car) as we went through the intersection at a later intersection, which will provide trouble for any vision based auto-pilot, it kept going straight and...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    I am hoping that this quarter numbers, and the opening of the Chinese Gigafactory will change they way they do business so they no longer plan a full quarter solely on the basis of being able to deliver they absolute highest number of cars in a specific quarter. That is, make cars in batches...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    How is it avoidable on the "buyers part?" I got my car last night, and ordered November 15. There is a guy at the Fremont Factory picking up today who ordered in late October! They do not have many options, so it is not like it was delayed due to complexity. It is Tesla optimizing their...

    Yep, I am actually surprised there was not much coverage of how crappy they have treated people this last quarter.

    I think they mean they wish the whole stop light graphic was the color of the light with a gradient. So you see the Stop Light rectangle, and if the light is green, the bottom of the rectangle is fully bright green, and the green lightens to white as it reaches the top of the light, yellow would...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Nope, no bonus extras, and they wanted to make sure I really understood how important I was to them by having an assembly line worker deliver the car, in the dark after he had put in a 12 hour workday building the cars. Luckily I had read the manual, taken an overnight test drive, so I knew more...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    Yep, attention is very important..and lost on many, BUT, all of the concentration can be focused on emergency maneuvers required due to other peoples mistakes(swerve and brake) so you do not have to spend as much time making the minute changes in your driving. I really liked it, and that was a...
