    Giant Red Steering Wheel Image on Monitor and

    I’ve recently been booted out of Auto Pilot after using it about 20 miles or so, and a giant red steering wheel appears on the monitor stating “Auto Pilot is not available for the rest of this trip” or something to that effect. It won’t let me use AP again until I stop the car and place it in...

    Car Locks at Home

    Even though I’ve checked off the box “exclude locking at home” my Y always locks itself, sometimes not immediately, but always sometime later after I have walked away after parking in my garage. I’ve checked and unchecked the box located in the Locks section of the UI, and watched as the...

    Sticky and Chattering Windshield Wipers

    Anyone have a problem with the wipers sticking and chattering while clearing the windshield of rain? It’s almost as if there is something on the glass causing the blade to stick and not move smoothly while clearing the rain.

    Removing mud flaps

    Anyone have experience in removing RPM Tesla mud flaps? I purchased another set from Amazon that seem to be more secure and a better fit, but I can’t get the ones I installed originally off of the MY.

    Wife’s Phone Key Not Working

    My wife’s phone key, which is the secondary key, will not open the car almost always. I’ve deleted her phone key twice and re-enabled it both times, and it works immediately but then will not open the car unless she opens the app. Once she takes her phone from her purse and opens the app it...

    Is it normal for the animated screen to be herky jerky, with the cars, trucks, etc., sometimes flickering and quivering as well as the lines representing the lane demarcations also quivering as well? Since this is my first Tesla just want to make sure this is normal operation of the animation...

    I get a lot of brake dust on all four wheels, even though I hardly ever apply the brakes using one pedal driving almost exclusively. In fact, I’ve done many trips in my MY and haven’t applied the brakes even one time. Wouldn’t you expect virtually zero brake dust if one pedal driving is used...

    PPF Accident

    This is a very long post, so please bare with me and read the entire post prior to commenting. I picked up MY Tesla on Saturday 5/1, drove immediately to a highly reviewed PPF and Wrap Shop in Orlando, FL. Left the car there over the weekend for them to begin working on a full front PPF, lower...

    Delivery Today

    Picked up MY in Orlando ordered on 4/6 today, 5/1. Everything went smoothly, they were extremely busy and it took 2 hours before we drove away. Fit and finish were close to perfect, only blemish was a slight orange dot on the hood that appeared to be under the clear coat. Every panel, every...

    Connecting Wall Charger to Wifi

    Having issues connecting my Tesla Wall Charger V3 to wifi. After successfully scanning the QR code on the front page of the Quick Connect Guide and entering the password, when I attempt to scan or manually enter the server address on the last page of the setup guide (192.xxx.x.x), I receive a...

    New Vehicle Odometer

    Just got the mileage statement on MY that I’m scheduled to accept delivery on 5/1, and it shows 15 miles. Just curious what others have had on their Model Y’s at delivery as it seems 15 miles sounds like a lot on a brand new car which supposedly hasn’t been driven.

    Question, if you have a VIN and a Delivery date (5/1 at 1pm) which was received 9 days after order date, does that indicate the vehicle was likely produced earlier and either refused or cancelled by another customer? Also, I’ve read many posts here that most customers don’t get their delivery...

    Ceramic Coating on top of PPF

    Anyone know what the advantages of doing a Ceramic Coating on top of Paint Protection Film (Xpel) and why I would get a quote from a vendor to do this? I was quoted $3085 for the entire PPF, using Xpel, on a Model Y with Ceramic Coating on top included. Name of the firm is 407 Custom in...

    Tesla only vehicle

    Good afternoon, I ordered my first Tesla, a Model Y, a few days ago. Been reading a lot on this site about performance issues, fit and finish issues, as well as flat tires causing Tesla’s to be out of commission for days in some cases. My concern after reading all of these comments is am I...

    Delivery Date

    Ordered a Model Y Extended Range AWD yesterday with a 5-9 week delivery date. Any idea if the vehicle will come in sooner rather than later? Anyone get their car sooner than they expected? What about some of the early issues, i.e. paint issues, fit issues, panel tolerances, trunk and door...
