    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    We have made numerous long road trips in the MY with radar, and for the most part, Autopilot made driving easier with only the occasional phantom braking. This was our first long road trip in the MY without radar, and the PB was the worst it has ever been, occurring while traveling 75mph on a...

    TACC “vision only” on radar equipped Model 3 … phantom braking getting scary

    My wife is also the arbiter. I made that same drive last weekend, and the phantom braking drove her crazy. I was NOT on FSD or using Autopilot - only TACC. The phantom braking got worse when we hit divided highways with less traffic! Go figure! I really wish they would let us select dumb cruise...

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    The updates haven't helped me, either. I have two MYs, a 2020 and a 2022 ("vision only"). Both have the latest updates. The only difference is that the 2020 has forward-facing radar, but the 2022 does not (as far as I know). We took a recent trip of almost 1,100 miles in the 2022 MY, and the...

    Keeping FSD In The Family

    Thank you!

    Keeping FSD In The Family

    Currently, both cars are listed under my Tesla account. In the Tesla app, I can see and interact with both cars. My wife is logged into the Tesla app under my name, so she can also see both cars. She is listed as an added driver for both. Up until the cloud profiles appeared, this worked fine...

    Keeping FSD In The Family

    The first Model Y that I bought has FSD. The second one, bought ~1.5 years later, does not have FSD. My wife drives the one with FSD, and I drive the one without. Both cars are under my account. Since the incorporation of cloud-based driver profiles, her car keeps reverting to my driver...

    "Pothole central Pennsylvania..." That's funny! We spent 6 years in Hershey, two of them during record winters. We definitely know about the potholes. (And sinkholes.)

    That's how I did it, too, on my first Tesla. Took 5 minutes.

    Current Delivery Times

    Yikes! We get plenty of snow/ice here in this part of Texas. My MYLR seemed to do okay on packed snow, but for icy roads, I opted to use my wife's Highlander AWD because it was older, cheaper, and less painful to sacrifice should someone hit us. To be fair, I haven't found any car that does...

    I agree. When you pay this much for a car that is reputed to have thin paint, why take chances? When I bought my first MYLR, I got a full wrap with Xpel Ultimate Plus then added ceramic. It cost a bit, but it has already saved me from road rock damage to my hood. Besides the protection, it is...

    Corrective steering ruining everything

    Since the latest software update, my MYLR seems to have become much more "nervous." My driving habits haven't changed, and I'm not driving aggressively at all. It's like the phantom braking, except now it is beeping taking credit for avoiding some mishap when I am simply driving down the road...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Amazing, isn't it? Tesla builds a factory in Texas, but you still can't buy a Tesla in Texas, and you cannot travel everywhere you want to go in Texas. I know Texas is big, but Tesla needs to give us more love!!

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Yes. Placing a Supercharger in Lubbock would open up so many routes and destinations that are only practical in an ICE vehicle now.

    "Tesla Offer" Models Y (& S, 3, & X) Powered Frunk Hood Group Buy?

    I installed my own without much difficulty, following the video. The hardest part for me was removing the clips on the original Tesla struts to get them out. (I had to modify an ice pick to turn it into a pick tool.) The other challenge was figuring out how to support the hood while I was...

    I bought MAXpider 3D's from RPMTesla.com. They are a little expensive, but I got what I paid for. Very nice looking, and I have no complaints at all.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I live in Texas and have not received any messages at all.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I don't have screen protector for my iPhone or my iPad, BUT I put a matte screen protector on my Model Y. It wasn't for protection, but to reduce glare. It works so well that I have never had an instance where I could not see the screen because of glare.

    Home charging help

    This whole topic confused me at first. Before ICE cars could predict range (miles that you could still drive), you had to guess when to stop for gas. Once they got better at estimating your fuel consumption, measuring the fuel in the tank, then displaying how many miles you had left, it became...

    Yoke Steering

    I can't fault Randy at all. When you are driving up to 140 mph on a winding mountain road without guard rails, that isn't the time to try something new and different. That said, Randy's choice for that particular race doesn't mean it would be wrong for someone else who has had plenty of...

    Yoke Steering

    I just tried watching the video with the sound muted and had the opposite thought. It made me appreciate how easy it is to use the turn indicators. It also showed how clean the view of the instrument cluster is. A round wheel will always obstruct the view at least partially. I remain undecided...

    From Bearded Tesla Guy- new 82kwh batteries are in new MY

    What app are you using, and where did you get the adapter? (Sorry if you have already discussed this elsewhere.)

    Yoke Steering

    So it's doable. But do you like it better than a round steering wheel? If you had the option to switch now (say, for free), would you?

    Poll: FSD is awesome even though it is not FSD

    For me, it only appears to work when you are first in line. It does not ding when you are behind someone else at the light.

    How to purchase Homelink

    Thanks. Makes sense. My garage door opener already has HomeLink, and my wife's Toyota does, too. I was hoping Tesla could just update the vehicle remotely and that I wouldn't need a ranger visit. I live 340 miles from the closest service center...

    How to purchase Homelink

    Questions: Is this an option that Tesla has to "turn on" to allow the car and phone app to use? Is the hardware in the kit for the garage door opener, or is it for the car? If you get this installed, will my other non-Tesla vehicles still be able to open the garage door? Thanks
