    Autopilot just cutout without warning!

    Autopilot just cutout without warning!

    Happened again on a calm part of the glorious NJ Turnpike… Doesn’t seem to like a lite touch on the wheel, which is friggin ridiculous.

    Autopilot just cutout without warning!

    Nope. Literally the same general stretch of road; it was really odd when it cut out, just gave an alert and cut out. …then it told me that autopilot was not available for the rest of the trip. Didn’t go over the speed limit (we were below 75MPH), hand lightly on the wheel, none of the standard...

    Autopilot just cutout without warning!

    So I’m driving down the mass pike, and the auto pilot system tells me that I need to pull the steering wheel and it cuts out immediately. The odd thing is, there was no warranty whatsoever to tell me that I wasn’t holding the steering wheel, and I was literally looking at the screen at the time...

    MYP ‘22 aka The Vomit Comet

    This is all true, but even autopilot is somewhat abrupt…

    MYP ‘22 aka The Vomit Comet

    Gotta disagree on my OP… I still maintain that Tesla removing the option to turn down the area. Aggressiveness of regenerative braking is an F you to the customers.

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    In my case I ordered the parts through the app, and I gave them the screenshot of the work order published here. No way to screen up the request unless you ignored it.

    Supercharger - Gloucester, MA

    This is what happens when your decommission all the nuclear power plants throughout New England…. All of those Yankee reactors… and natural gas will only get worse, and it turns out that we start exporting it to Europe.

    MYP ‘22 aka The Vomit Comet

    I think the point is is that you have to do whatever it takes in a given situation… That might be accelerating, and it might be breaking. Had I slammed on the brakes. The guy would’ve T-boned me and I probably would’ve been dead.

    MYP ‘22 aka The Vomit Comet

    Actually, I have managed to accelerate out of a problem.., When I had a model three, I was driving down the road through an intersection where are the two opposing sides were required to stop because they had stop signs. Someone ran one of the stop signs and was going to T-bone me. The only...

    Supercharger - Gloucester, MA

    One more thing about the Gloucester location: Two times I’ve been at the charger when it’s nighttime (after 10pm or around 5:30AM) and non-EV people have been parked there… just hanging out. Likely because the charger spaces are out of sight / off to the side. I’m sort of wondering what kind of...

    Supercharger - Gloucester, MA

    Woot! Finally got to use the Gloucester supercharger… Of course when I came out all the spots for empty, except for one, and some jackass parked next to the drivers door on my car… and of course they didn’t have an EV.

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow!

    I will say that one of the things that I was not impressed with the Goodyear tires. What is the Hydroplane a lot easier

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow!

    Just in case, I put the 21in PS4 A/S tires on the car... no sense taking the chance. We'll see how crappy my mileage gets! GB

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow!

    So folks: Since this thread was originally posted, has then been any general updates to how these tires do in moderate winter weather. I'm about to head up to Boston and I've got the "PILOT SPORT ALL SEASON 4" 21in wheels that came with my MYP. I put the Goodyears on to see just how much the...

    Thinks are largely installed (looked at it this AM). Seems like they are at least waiting for the connection to the national grid.

    Model Y acceleration shudder?

    Man…. That blows. Mine is an MYP and seems to never have had that issue.
  26. G

    Model Y acceleration shudder?

    Are you guys sure you’re not experiencing the shutter that happens in the steering wheel when you drive over the lines without putting your blinkers on? I know that seems obvious… But I’m kind of curious if that’s what you’re talking about….

    Annoying noise from drivers seat cushion! Is this normal?

    The majority of the noise related issues that I faced were from the seatbelt area on the driver side and the bolt holding the right side seat rail. I bought replacement aftermarket lock washers and then I torqued the bolts down For the rear rail bolts. It has largely fixed the problem. I’ve...

    Did Tesla Screw You too? (Registration)

    I would go to the attorney generals office in the state that you live. Once the lead prosecutor in the state gets involved I guarantee Tesla will suddenly fix the issue if they have an already.

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    In my case… I gave the SC the specific the part numbers I wanted and then told them that if they felt like installing them for me great, otherwise I just wanted the parts. afterwards they seem to have decided to cover their asses by telling me they don’t the install, as opposed to being honest...

    Performance 21’ rims or 19’ Geminis..Are the 21’ worth the sleek look?

    Yeah, from one Air Force vet to the other… I’m seeing about 10% with the 20 inch OEM wheels I put on the car.

    Windows and trunk randomly open on their own while I’m away from my car.

    Do you have the S3XY buttons? If you have the most recent Tesla firmware and you have not updated the commander unit to the most recent beta firmware the car will do weird things.

    Performance 21’ rims or 19’ Geminis..Are the 21’ worth the sleek look?

    Neither: Model 3 Performance Uberturbine 20x9 wheels You get 20in wheels and better range. Plus, the tires will be very slightly proud, thus protecting them from road rash!

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    Mobile service came today and installed the upper to trim pieces and the parcel shelf itself. I had called them and asked them to replace the lower trim pieces for me and they brought those pieces… When he got here he was able to get the glue off from the aftermarket trunk cover and asked me if...

    2022 MYP 100% charged =296 mile?

    Ok, I’m getting closer to 330 miles at 100%. I put M3P 20x9 Uberturbines with the OEM 20in MYLR tires… and just changing the tires made a huge mileage difference. The 20x9 wheels allow the tires to stick out enough (.5in) to protect the wheels… no curb rash.

    Elon's Tweet on Tire Pressure

    I put the 20 inch Uberturbines from a M3P (20x9) on my MYP, and three things happened: 1) The ride got soft enough that it doesn’t kick your butt anymore 2) The 20 in Uberturbines aren’t flush with the tires, so they do t get road rash 3) The efficiency went up to that point that I get ~330...

    Just installed Cross Climate 2

    So I did something different than most folks: I have an MYP that came with 21in wheels, which I replaced with 20in wheels (which is typical). Whats atypical is that I put M3P 20in uberturbune 20x9 wheels on my MYP, and then I put the F1 Asymetrics on those wheels. That gave the wheels ~1/2 of...

    Frunk opening itself after 2022.36.2

    You mean as in generally the walk away lock the car feature? OK, I have an MYP 2022. Last week I got the current firmware update for the car, and then things started getting really weird. I believe that I have determined that the issue is the S3XY buttons. It appears that the firmware version...

    dl_a175 / Cruise Control Not Available after 2022.36.2 Firmware

    S3XY buttons appear to have a compatibly issue with the latest firmware. There is only a beta commander firmware available and will not auto update unless beta firmware is enabled…

    dl_a175 / Cruise Control Not Available after 2022.36.2 Firmware

    There is definitely something to the S3XY Buttons… I’m wondering if Tesla screwing with them? It goes away when I turn them off or disconnect the controller…

    Question about service center issues

    I got a request for an eval of the service appointment (went and picked up the parts two days ago)... Let's just say that I was not kind and understanding. I basically detailed out my suspicions and the appointment / massive waste of my time. (...and frankly they service people clearly don't...
