    Wet rear camera

    Thanks for the info. Regarding the "sarcasm" of "scoobydoo", totally inappropriate. Not appreciated. My question was serious. And I spent time looking for the option he mentioned. (Which would not be a bad idea- some kind of defrost function to clean condensation from the camera lens.) The...

    Wet rear camera

    I looked under Safety, and could not find the option you mentioned. Might it be somewhere else?

    Wet rear camera

    I've noticed that when it rains, the rear camera gets wet, and the rear camera vision (while backing up) gets clouded, and hard to see with. Can be dangerous. Is there any fix for that. (2021 Model 3)

    Tire Warranty? Other brands?

    Update. There was a nail in my tire. I brought it to two places though, and both said that the location of the nail (I think he said near the side wall) would make it impossible to repair. So, the 2nd place, a Firestone place, had their own Firestone brand of that tire, and sold me one. (Just...

    Tire Warranty? Other brands?

    I have a 2021 Tesla Model 3, purchased in October of that year (so just over a year old), only a little over 5,000 miles on it. (as I'm retired, not commuting) One of my tires (right rear) has a slow leak now. I pump it up to the required 42 PSI. Next day still there, but after a few days it is...

    Preparing my Tesla Model 3 for a long [road] trip?

    Are the Tesla Superchargers preferable to other charging stations? Faster?

    Preparing my Tesla Model 3 for a long [road] trip?

    I was not sure in which sub-forum to post this in, but because it will partially involve charging, I put it here. (If admins want to move it to a different sub-forum, that's OK.) I bought my 2021 Tesla Model 3 SR LFP last October, 2021. So about 10 months old. It is my first EV. As I am...

    Front license plate holder

    $139 for a license plate holder? Highway robbery!

    Front license plate holder

    How do they mount to the bumper, with no holes there?

    Front license plate holder

    You can get a ticket for it. Once my front plate was stolen, and I got a ticket for no front plate. DMV would not replace just the front plate, I had to get a new set with a new plate #, So you may have been lucky so far, but may get a ticket.

    Front license plate holder

    I got my new Model 3 a month ago, and just got my CA license plates yesterday. I already put on the rear license plate, but am surprised there are no holes in the front bumper to screw on the front license plate. Instead, the car came with a front license plate holder that one is supposed to...

    Tesla app won't run

    Now I saw the post from someone who said that it worked for him to turn off wi-fi on the phone. I did that, and now it logged on. That is strange, no? (Again, no VPN.) Why won't it connect if the phone is connected to wi-fi? PS Now the phone app is telling me to set up my phone key. It was...

    Tesla app won't run

    I am having the same problem, from yesterday afternoon through today. (Android app) I do not have a VPN. I am unable to log on to Tesla from the phone app. (No problem logging into my Tesla account on the computer) I have tried everything- uninstalling and reinstalling the app, rebooting the...

    Trip Meters?

    Have just had my Teslla Model 3 SR a few days, my first Tesla. I tried to see trip meters on it, an easy thing to see on most cars. The only way I could find to access it is by the voice command "Trip Meters". That shows one trip meter. But it is one that always started just a few miles...

    Odometer on Model 3

    I have a new 2021 Model 3 SR that I got a couple days ago, my first Tesla. I tried that swiping right from the bottom left corner, and it did not show me trip meters. (I also tried swiping from the middle left, although I don't know what TPMS is, and nothing happened.) Has that capability...

    Odometer on Model 3

    What is TPMS?

    Rolling, coasting?

    Does that mean that with it set to Roll, one can coast down a hill without the foot on the accelerator? But the only way one can do that is with the screen?

    Rolling, coasting?

    Then what are the settins for : roll, creep, I forget the other one?

    Rolling, coasting?

    Actually I drove stick shifts for most of my driving career. Only my most recent car (last three years, recently totaled in an accident) was automatic. So I guess more used to automatic now, but much more experience driving stick, manual transmission.

    Rolling, coasting?

    Once again, I am a Tesla newbie, just having got my first one (Model 3) two days ago, so will have lots of questions. It is also the first time I had any car with regenerative braking. Very new to me. Hard to get used to. For instance, going downhill. Normally, depending on where and how...

    Parking Assistance?

    But charging $10,000 more to get that parking assistance is pretty extreme! I guess it helps Musk to play with rockets. LOL

    Delivery on Time

    Nope I received it a bit before 3 PM. But they did not text me first as I had been told, when they were leaving and when they got there. No text at all. The guy just showed up with it.

    Parking Assistance?

    I received my Tesla Model 3 SR yesterday, my first Tesla. My previous car, a 2018 Toyota Prius Prime (Advanced Trim) had some parking assistance to park the car automatically with parallel parking and back-in parking. I didn't use it much, but occasionally did. I thought that the Tesla, a more...

    Turn off audio?

    I got my first Tesla yesterday, an SR Model 3. So sorry for newbie questions I ask. On most cars turning the radio on and off is very simple. Not so the Tesla. Well, I turned it on, and was listening to the radio while trying to figure out some things on the car. But later, I could not figure...

    Delivery on Time

    Well yes, nothing in life is 100% absolute, true. Most of the delays I have read about are long term delays. In this case, they say they will deliver it tomorrow, so on the basis of that I returned the rental car today. I certainly hope they will follow through on that though, or I could end up...

    Delivery on Time

    Does anyone know? When one gets a short term delivery date, do they stick to it? Can I count on it?
  27. M

    Delivery on Time

    I posted about this already, but cannot find the thread! My Tesla is supposed to be delivered this Saturday afternoon, between 12-4. Can I count on that, or do they sometimes delay delivery dates at the last minute? I have a rental car now (previous car was totaled), and planned to return the...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Also, do they deliver them to you fully charged (or almost fully charged)? Or almost empty?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    My Tesla Model 3 (first Tesla) is supposed to be delivered to me this Saturday, between noon and 4 PM. Are they reliable? Can I expect it to be delivered at that time, and count on it? I have a rental car now (after my previous car was totaled), so am planning to return it tomorrow (Friday...

    Emergency Roadside Assistance

    What is covered and what you need to pay? Isn't the coverage the same on all Teslas during the warranty period? "What you need to pay"? You mean you have to pay something for the emergency assistance? If so, might it not be better to use the coverage from insurance?

    For those hesitant to give Plaid your credentials when paying...

    I tried that. Did not work. (Perhaps changed since June?) The only other options were to initiate a wire transfer with the bank (more hassle, and involves a fee) or get a certified check from the bank (also a hassle). I also would prefer to give routing # and account #, rather than give them my...

    Emergency Roadside Assistance

    What if there is a problem with the 12v battery? Do Teslas ever need a jump start? Or a flat tire? Would Tesla come and help with such issues during the warranty period?

    Emergency Roadside Assistance

    ?Hello, This is my first post to this group, and I do not yet have a Tesla. A Tesla Model 3 (SR) is supposed to be delivered to me this Saturday. I will likely be asking several newbie questions. I have not yet set up my new car with my insurance, and will do so today. One question that would...
