    BBC Fake News - Tesla ordered to recall more than a million US cars

    All I'm saying is that when you're getting close to retirement, you know your income will decrease a lot, so you should plan your budget ahead in a appropriate way based on your future retiree income. If your monthly budget is so tight you can't even afford an internet connection at home, I...

    BBC Fake News - Tesla ordered to recall more than a million US cars

    Well... we're all acknowledging this. That's not the point and you perfectly know it. Those headlines are purposedly misleading because a recall "normally conveys literally bringing one’s car to a mechanic for work", which is not the case with OTA updates. Me neither! :cool:

    BBC Fake News - Tesla ordered to recall more than a million US cars

    Do I really have to explain? If you don't see why all those click-baiting "1 million+ Tesla vehicles recalled" headlines are misleading, then you obviously and deliberately don't want to understand the point here. Tesla's recall that wasn't: How Musk revolutionized the auto industry

    BBC Fake News - Tesla ordered to recall more than a million US cars

    A real recall means vehicles have to be brought to a service center and go through physical, hardware repairs. Any issue that can be fixed through a software update shouldn't be named a "recall", because it's simply not a recall as the automative industry calls it since decades. NTHSA needs to...

    BBC Fake News - Tesla ordered to recall more than a million US cars

    You clearly understood what the topic is all about here, didn't you? If not, I don't understand what you're trying to prove. Calling an OTA update a "recall", even if it is mandatory, is a total nonsense, period. The NHTSA is probably too lazy to come up with a new terminology... and meanwhile...

    Should I trade-in Model Y for 2022 Model S?

    I think you should ask yourself one simple question: "Do I really need it?". If your personal finances allow you to spend an additional 500$/month on a car AND if you don't need the extra cargo space provided by the Y AND if you can get a decent resale price for your MY AND if you really feel...

    Auto High Beam making Autosteer unusable

    I have 2022.24.5 on my Vision-Only 2021 MY (manufactured after May 2021 so auto high beams are activated with Autopilot at night). Last night when driving home on a 100km trip, I experienced how poor the auto high beams implementation is. Although it was slightly better than what I previously...

    Wall Connector Power Sharing

    I always thought power sharing was supposed to work this way by design, but apparently not! Yesterday we had to charge both Teslas (MYLR and M3SR+). I noticed both were charging at 30A although I have two 60A breakers in a breaker box (one for each wall charger) linked to another 60A breaker in...

    Model 3 trunk beeping twice and stopping halfway?

    I had the exact same issue since 2022.8.2. I could fix it by recalibrating the trunk: when it stops, just open it manually until the desired opening height and long-press the trunk button until you start hearing beeps. It should solve the issue.

    First Tesla - Model 3 SR+ Multiple problems since pickup

    @Tam is completely right. My M3SR+ and MY both do the same weird noise coming from the rear drive unit when charging in cold temps and battery is cold, this is absolutely normal.

    Same here, got .6 and .7 yesterday for both my MY and my M3. I guess those updates were released quickly to address the heat pump issues ( I also heard people in cold regions were targeted in priority for these updates.) I suspect .6 was released too early and maybe did not fix all heat pump...

    Preconditioning - Am I Missing Something?

    I was referring to these: If you see them in the app after enabling climate, it means your battery is being warmed up.

    Preconditioning - Am I Missing Something?

    Yes it does, if battery has to be warmed up. You can confrm it on the app when you see the three "bacon" next to the battery percentage. Of course if temperature is way below 0C, it will take way more time than warming up the cabin.

    How did you convince your significant other to order a Tesla?

    I convinced my wife to test drive a Model Y back in March.

    Calais to Limoges France in a Tesla 3

    I suggest you try A Better Route Planner to plan your roadtrip. There are several SuC on your road so it should not be a problem at all to go from Calais to Limoges with two or three charging stops.
