    Do ALL New 2022 Model S Ordered Come With the Yoke? I ordered in October and it shows it will be supplied with the yoke. I'm sort of on the fence..

    I think I'd prefer to just go with the standard wheel, but if it shows up with the yoke it won't be a no-go. Is there an official way to reach out to tesla to see what options are other than trying an unlikely phone call to a human or ask/confirm in the app where the car is in order/verify status?

    Model S 2022 - Is There the TESLA Lettering (strip?) right below where the trunk closes like the 2016 and earlier have ?

    I cannot definitively tell from rear end angled Model S 2022 pictures on the Tesla website or other ramdom site pictures, whether there is the the thin tapered strip (chrome/black) with the raised TESLA block font lettering that exists. I dont see after market parties providing skins or letter...

    Alarm Mode and Lightening

    Has anyone had issue with the Alarm being set off by either lightening or thunder? Its happened several times and I don't know what the exact 1 of the 2 is the cause. I believe it's the lightening, but the loud thunder rumble might really be the cause. Once I get the ap alert, being away...

    Recalls for loose bolt

    Can anyone show an image of what the bolts look like? My wife found a bolt in our driveway and threw it away thinking it was construction debris since homes are still being built on our street. :( It could also be related to my S. That would be a bummer.

    Tesmanian Model Y spoiler matte black

    I don't know about the Tesmanian made version's overall quality, but quality of carbon fiber (CF) varies greatly. Also, some people, possibly your husband, just like the look of CF better than matte or gloss black plastics. I have a CF on my S that is 4 years old. It is gloss CF, and was made...

    Driver side mirror does not fully adjust

    I'm guessing there's an issue with the mirror. Your height would not have any affect unless it's a vertical adjustment you are missing. I would think for blind spot it would be horizontal. MY will adjust further than I need so again, probably issue that service should check.

    Lets see some different aftermarket wheels

    #1, is that a wrap (I'm guessing no), and #2, if it's not WHAT are you using to get such a mirror shine/reflection? Most I've seen so far. :)

    Paint repair of scratches from road debris

    I had this guy fix my Model S TWICE where the garage door moving down scratched my bumper WAY WORSE, and he was able to fix in about one hour and you can never tell. About $100-200 was all it cost. https://fixmypaint.com/ Might want to give him a try if able.

    Error showing with Samsung usb for recording?

    I feel your frustration. For now, I'm using a very old Sony USB stick with only 32GB; even has poor write speed compared to today's devices. It works until I figure out what to do next. I've not tried to format my Samsung SSD drive from a computer (other than thru car), so I may try that. I...

    Possible Wifi Fix for Those That Can't Connect - Check Network Name Error

    I've been dealing with a new Y since delivery on Sept 12th, where it will not connect to ANY wifi network other than my or my wife's iphone's hot spot. My 2 home networks, nope. My ATT portable LTE hotspot, nope. A local Starbux hotspot, nope. Zip, nada. Always failed with "network connection...

    Error showing with Samsung usb for recording?

    I have a Samsung SSD 1TB drive that has been working fine UP UNTIL I took this weekends firmware upgrade for the Y. Now sentry will not work at all. It keeps requiring me to format the drive, but as soon as I leave the car, it shuts down any recording by the sentry mode. The car went in for...

    My New Y Nearly Stopped.......... for a tree leaf

    I haven sentry, but I've not learned all its in and outs. I know I have the horn honk set to record the last 30 seconds or whatever it does, but I didn't think to do that. I still don't know enough about sentry mode. i.e. Is it recording all the time even when in motion, or just when parked...

    My New Y Nearly Stopped.......... for a tree leaf

    Picked up new MY Saturday. Was driving today on divided four lane state highway. Median separated the double lanes had trees of all sizes, most fairly large. Car was on cruise, but not autopilot; 60mph. Out of the left corner of my eye, I caught a decent sized tree leaf beginning to tumble...

    Late 2016 / Early 2017 S Owners: How Are Your Daytime Running Lights Holding Up?

    I had passenger side replaced on a 2016 refresh. I noticed a ballast hum coming from the light when off shortly after getting car. I was told on this forum it was a sign that it would eventually quit. About a year later it did. Service replaced. If they are LED I can't see why there would be...

    Gurgling bubbling sounds from my 85D

    I'm OCD so as long as I know it's not something about to break or fail, I can live with it. I'd rather it not be there, but since mine's gone away with warmer weather, I will just take it in stride. Mode meds if it's not. :(

    240 outlet in garage and quad 20-40-40-20 circuit breaker

    I don't know of anywhere that requires by code a GFCI or ACI breaker for an EV outlet. Why would they? EV cables, at least Tesla, are make connections by the control power prongs before energizing high power, so unless there is a breach in the charging cable and you were to have the ability...

    Gurgling bubbling sounds from my 85D

    Mine has seemed to have gone away with the warming of the weather here in FLorida. Mine must have just been the A/C refrigerant bubbling because of temps as some suggested to me. :cool:

    2016 Tesla Brake Issues with Low Miles.

    I have a 2016, Sep delivered S70 that has just started to do the vibration when braking. It does not always do it, and it is not severe, but bothers me nonetheless. I am in FLorida so no extreme temps/snow. I don't think I've ever braked hard at all except once for some idiot that cut me off...

    Gurgling bubbling sounds from my 85D

    2016 Model 75 here just started noticing this exact noise. Sounds like refrigerant boing off or something. Almost repeats itself every 30 seconds or so, basic same repeating over and over. Def not related to battery coolant as I only hear with A/C on; no, heat not on. Turn A/C off and it...

    HVAC Fan Seed Falls Back to 1 After Leaving Car

    I did the last firmware upgrade and one annoying issue has cropped up that I could not find thru search. When I exited the car before, when I returned, the A/C fan was where I left it OR maybe up 1 level. Now when I return it is always on level 1. In South FLorida, that sucks. Should it not...

    Model 3 - SN1 - Anyone catch the door handles?

    What about it can detect any pressure on the rear/fat portion which causes it to auto-swivel out some fixed amount, and you can then grab? Once fully deployed by pulling/opening the door, when released it then closes flush. I can see that... :cool:

    Rocklin, CA supercharger destroyed my tire

    I'm having a hard time visualizing what actually cut the tire wall. I see what appears to be a concrete bumper like in most parking lots, but I assume that was not it. It would put you too far back in the stall and on top of the other facing car. Tesla NOT stocking the tires is odd and...

    What do you think of this? Early buyers of Tesla's Model 3 get two choices: color, wheel size

    I was on the call and heard what he said. He indicated that there would be only a couple of choices as in probably color and wheel size. NO one challenged him if he was to be taken literally, and nothing further was said or elaborated on. I personally don't think it will be ONLY those 2...

    No replacement for the 90D

    I see no reason to drop the S ever (realistically speaking). They would drop the S and only have the 3 for a sedan? Makes zero sense. The S will become the luxury car (from the inside) it might should have been if you listen to all those that compare the interior to everything from a VW to a...

    [Unverified] Defective Design- A Disaster

    I don't agree. It is entirely possible to strike something large enough to do considerable damage to ANY car without being able to see it as you drive. He didn't indicate if it was at night, but that still is not a requirement for hitting something you did not see. Concrete blocks blend into...
