    Supercharger - Lansing, MI - South Pennsylvania Ave

    I noticed it’s showing up as available in my car now. Anybody used it? Wish they’d put this on that 69/96 corridor west of town, but glad to have a new, faster charger in the area.

    Do you have problems with Spotify? I can't play some songs (amongst other issues)

    Having this problem with a growing list of songs. It seems like it’s maybe songs that didn’t load properly once and then can never play again. I’ve done hard resets, logged out of my Spotify, etc. Can’t get anything to work. Doesn’t matter if I select from a search, use voice command, a...

    Experiencing the same issue, sometimes when stopped so I don’t think it’s just bumpy roads fo me.

    2021 Model X Pedestrian Warning Sound?

    Supercharger - Escanaba, MI

    My excitement may have been premature... I went looking for more info on the charge level and, based on the specs in the ChargePoint contract presented to city council, this looks to me like a level 2 charger? But someone smarter than me should confirm. See page 80 of this PDF...

    Supercharger - Escanaba, MI

    Slightly off-topic and maybe old news to folks. But I can finally plan my Porcupine Mountains trip! Small U.P. city hopes electric vehicle charging station will attract new visitors

    Is it a Spaceship?

    Yes, it is still there in my Y (took delivery last week). It is much subtler than the reverse noise and is just white noise as has been described on here. I only notice it because I roll the windows down and listen for oncoming traffic when I pull out of my garage into the alley.

    Model Y purchase options

    Your comment that this forum overrepresents negative experiences is key. I am not minimizing people's frustrating experiences on here, most of which are legitimate and unacceptable. But I suspect they are not representative--and I know they are not representative of my own experiences. In fact...

    Range increase?

    Article from Electrek: Tesla leaked software points to new range increase for Model Y - Electrek Are there any tells to figure out if your car has a bigger battery pack?

    A Dark Night...All Alone At a Supercharging Station in the Middle of Nowhere!

    Tesla shared that prototype of an automated charging connector several years ago. But I would submit that the automated connector is far more terrifying than anything you may encounter in your travels:

    Anyone seen if this will be limited to MCU2? My guess is yes, but I'm crossing my fingers.

    Anyone make the drive from Metro Detroit, MI to Metro Chicago, IL?

    I have a MX 100D and I make the drive from Chicago to Ann Arbor all the time, and to the Detroit suburbs from time to time. Super easy. There are Superchargers in Ann Arbor, Marshall, and St. Joseph--all with places to eat. When it's warm, I could probably make the drive without stopping, but...

    Can you lock model X with keys inside?

    This article describes the location of the dead zone: 2. KEY FOB “DEAD ZONE” If you need to leave your key fob in the vehicle without worrying about the car being unlocked and possibly stolen, place it on the floor of the cargo area next to the left rear wheel well. That is a “dead zone” where...

    Keyless entry gotcha (locked myself out this morning)!

    Another word of warning: don't leave your key fob and your phone together in the car. Apparently, the phone can mess with the signal from the fob and cause a lockout. I found myself locked out of my car with both the phone and the key fob sitting in the center console. I can only assume it...

    New to Tesla...Is it really that bad?

    My customer service experiences have been pretty darn bad. But fortunately my X has required very little service, and the bad service experiences are so outweighed by how much I love driving the car. My lease is up in a year and it's hard to imagine getting anything other than another Tesla.

    V10 on the Model X

    Thanks, I will try to keep track. It doesn't happen on my daily commute so I don't have enough data yet. I did notice one spot where it flashed warnings that autosteer was limited to increasingly lower speeds as it slowed down--I would assume that is location specific. I didn't notice that...

    V10 on the Model X

    Anybody else notice the vehicle randomly slowing down on the freeway? It's unlike previous phantom braking I've had in which the car slammed on the brakes. This is a gentle braking even though the car ahead is maintaining speed. I have no idea if it is braking to a stop because I doubt the...

    Just got version 10

    Were you supposed to get smart summon or was that an oversight on Tesla's part? I only have enhanced autopilot and assumed I won't be getting smart summon. Thanks for sharing.

    Anyone else's mobile app failing to connect to the car?

    All I can tell you is I also had deleted and reinstalled the app and it initially didn't help. I did another delete and reinstall today and now it seems to work fine. :rolleyes: Good luck!

    Car says key not present, when key is in my pocket

    I had a fob fail on me even after replacing the battery. Tesla mobile service can come out and replace the fob for free. It's a five minute fix.

    X to 3 - What do you miss?

    There must be a thread about this somewhere, but I didn't find one with a search. Has anyone traded a Model X for a Model 3? If so, are you happy? Anything you particularly miss? I leased my X with the idea that the X's range would be dramatically increased by the time my lease was up at the...

    Still not convinced. We have no proof that car received an actual charge.

    2019.12.1 update

    I got this error as I was parking the car this morning (downloaded the 1.1 update last night). I've previously only ever gotten it when the cameras were caked in snow.

    Supercharger - Clare, MI

    My cousin sent me a screenshot of a FB post claiming the Clare (or "Claire" as it is known in Fremont) SC is online. The pic sure looked done with fence removed and landscaping complete--but of course you can't really tell. My understanding is that the final step is a QC from a Tesla rep...

    I did it!

    You are going to love it. Don't be surprised if you have some hiccups in the first few months--I certainly did. They are annoying to varying degrees, but (for me) none of them outweigh the joy of driving this thing. I've had mine for about 1.5 years and I still feel giddy when I get in the car.

    2019.8.5 Charger Handle Won't Unlock Door

    I've had this and I've also had random letters disappear from the center screen. For example, when I supercharge, I see three different numbers (charge rate, miles added, and power rate) but all of the labels are missing.

    I woke up in NC and don't know how I got here

    So, the craziest part about all this is that while I was driving to work, it mostly just showed me driving through a bunch of farmland. But when I got to the parking garage at work, my car on the map ended up right at the end of a long driveway to a house in the middle of nowhere. I have a...

    I woke up in NC and don't know how I got here

    I think you're probably correct. Just like Unpilot, mine corrected itself about a day later. While I was driving, the map refreshed and put me back in cold, snowy Chicago.

    I woke up in NC and don't know how I got here

    I tried searching the threads for this, but didn't find one with quite the same problem... I got into my car this morning and noticed the clock was displaying Eastern time instead of Central (I'm in Chicago). Then I noticed that the car thinks it's in Sims, NC. I have never been to Sims, NC...

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    No, because of the timing. He could only stage 36 and then I had to wait for it to download and then install. After he left, I sat in my garage waiting for the download to start. After 15 minutes I gave up and drove to work so I can afford my Tesla.

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    FYI I asked the Tesla ranger to stage the new update this morning. He said it wouldn’t let him jump me from 34 to 39–He had to push 36 first. So if you’re not on 36, you’re still two updates away.
  37. jdchi

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    Don't get me wrong, I am still waiting anxiously for my update notification. I have a ranger appointment tomorrow for my key fob. Anyone know if they can push an update or does it have to be at the service center?

    Supercharger - Escanaba, MI

    I was toying with the idea of driving from Chicago back to Petoskey through the UP in a few weeks to see the colors. Sounds like overnight at the Quality Inn in Escanaba is a good charging option. Any others between Escanaba and Petoskey? What would be really great is if there were super...

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    All of the rollbacks I've seen were from one pre-9 version to another pre-9 version.

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    Maybe your plane will have v9

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    According to Teslafi, they appear to be moving everyone from 32.x and 34.x onto 36. So it looks like I’m two steps away from v9
  44. jdchi

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    I'm curious about this as well--hoping to get it while I'm at work. Here's a prior thread on this: Firmware updates only over WiFi?

    Access to all Tesla super chargers

    Got the same message when I turned the car on this morning. Also already had unlimited supercharging. Maybe it is just Tesla reminding us how lucky we are. Haven't noticed any problems with the driver door.

    Not even a week and I hate this car...

    I hear you. I had a real rocky start with my X and I started wondering if I had purchased the biggest mistake of my life. It took about two weeks to iron out the kinks but now the car is great and I am in love with it. No regrets.

    Sorry to hijack this thread but I’m not sure how else to get this in front of a bunch of northern Michiganders... Anyone have experience with tire repair/replacement in northern Michigan? I’m in Petoskey with a puncture that I think is about to turn into a flat. Trying to figure out how I’m...
