    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Thanks for the info. Here is a pic of the dots. It was 71 degrees at the time.

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Here are some more details. I received the vehicle on 12/31/19 and have 6000 miles on it. I have 18 inch wheels and do not use the aero covers. I also mainly charge at home (120v) since March when I became a full time remote worker because of covid-19. Previous to that most charging was done at...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Apologies if this is duplicative of what is in the other 69 pages of posts. I went through a fair number and did not see degradation like I am seeing based on the conditions. I have a 2020 LR AWD. I have only charged to 100% twice and yesterday was the second time. When at 100% energy, the...

    White Seat Stained by Diono Carseat Protector Mats

    I have the same non removable marks, but they were not Diono brand seat covers. It has great reviews, so I wonder if it is something with the white seats. They do have Diono car seats on them...Amazon.com : Smart elf I

    Sound Of Door Closing Changed?

    On warmer days, my drivers door window is clipping the b pillar glass. I had an appointment to have it looked at, but it stopped doing it for a few days, so I cancelled. It has returned and I have realized it seems to only occur in temps above 85. So I will be setting up a service call.

    Passengers in M3 alone!

    Weird, mine does not lock the car if I turn off bluetooth before opening a door.

    Passengers in M3 alone!

    In these situations, I just park, turn bluetooth off, then leave car. The car does not know I left and it's as fast as a swipe in the android drop down to turn back on when I return.

    Driver window hitting B-pillar glass

    Has anyone had their drivers side window clip the b.pillar glass when closing the door? It has been happening most times, but not all, the last few days. It has been near 100 degrees, so perhaps it's due to expansion? Here is a picture.

    Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately

    Go Elon. The only thing CA offers is a customer base. No reason to build vehicles here.

    I live here and would NEVER open a business here. Good job Elon. Make CA pay for being a nanny state.

    Any interior dB readings for 2020?

    I think wind noise is pretty good. However, road noise on certain surfaces can be distracting at times. I'm coming from a 2007 truck, so not exactly used to serene environments. It's my only real complaint about the car.

    2020.12.1 Hitting Now

    Realized that I am not on 20.12.1. I received updates two days in a row and assumed I was up to date, but am only at 20.8.2.

    2020.12.1 Hitting Now

    I oddly am seeing longer warmup times after this update. After traveling more than 15 miles in temps around 60 (with freeway), regen has still not gotten to 100%. The first months of owning (since 12/31/19), I would rarely not start with full regen since I park in a house garage. Only change is...

    Walk away lock: Is there a way to leave a person in the car?

    In these instances,I turn off Bluetooth before I leave the car. Then my car does not know I have left and leaves on the screen and climate control. I turn it back on when I get back in the car.

    Dedicated Pearl White Picture Thread

    Newly washed. Picked her up on 12/31. All my tires have red circles on them for some reason. I so love this car. I look for any excuse to drive it. My young kids now think bedtime entails falling asleep in "The Tess-eh-la".

    360 degree camera for parking ?

    I would like it to avoid curbing my rims. I rushed a parking job since I had coworkers and was reversing to the parallel park. A nice painted green curb no less. Everyone is different and use the various features and functions more or less than others. You may find 360 camera not useful...

    Two toddler car seats and an adult?

    I think I will go that and leave the middle seat open. I set it up this way to make it easier for the adult to get in, but I think safety is paramount. However, my four-year-old daughter is not going to agree with this decision as she was stoked that she could "finally see the screen".

    Two toddler car seats and an adult?

    I wish I have the same kickmats. I wish they offered versions where the straps are white. I have white seats and the black straps look odd on the headrest.

    Is it reasonable to ask Tesla delivery service to improve sound proofing the car?

    It is funny how judgemental folks become when they go electric. I pers It is odd, but I think I find the main source of noise in my new Model 3 to be from the tires. I am surprised since they are Michelins. I test drove versions with the 19-inch wheels (Continental tires) back in September and...

    Two toddler car seats and an adult?

    So I went with 2 Diono Radian 3R car seats. An adult can now fit physically, but it is impossible to reach the buckle. I'm hoping there is some sort of extender available for the buckle, just a couple inches, as then it would work.

    Wait for paint to cure before washing?

    For those of us that picked up our cars from the factory at the end of the year (I was 12/31), how long should we wait until we wash the vehicle? I have read that paint is too soft to wash when just out of the factory and can cause damage. However, I have a white model 3 and it is very dusty and...

    What is your build date for deliveries between Christmas and New Years?

    Cool. I wonder if it has slowed down for them yet. I don't want to ask this sort of question if they are still working long hours.

    What is your build date for deliveries between Christmas and New Years?

    Oh duh! :) Do we have any way of determining the actual date it started or ended production?

    What is your build date for deliveries between Christmas and New Years?

    Doing this purely as a fun exercise... I noticed that my Model 3 has a build date of 12/19 on the sticker on the drivers door. The car was delivered 12/31 AM at the factory after ordering on 10/18. I have read that Model 3's tend to take 5 days from the start of assembly to being delivery...

    Is it reasonable to ask Tesla delivery service to improve sound proofing the car?

    Ahh, sorry about that. I think the word "mandate" threw me off. I agree that it would be amazing if we could have the best of the different manufacturers.

    Is it reasonable to ask Tesla delivery service to improve sound proofing the car?

    I do not believe in mandating what companies build. Unless it's like WW2 maybe... More importantly, you forget the benefits of that corporate culture. You would not have the battery packs you have. The amazing software. The ability to update on the fly. The tech, etc. So yes, let's get rid of...

    Two toddler car seats and an adult?

    Does anyone have recommendations if trying to fit two car seats in the back of a Model 3? We have a minivan, but the kids (2 and 4) only want to drive in the Model 3 now (I feel the same ). It's a hassle to move them back and forth from vehicle to vehicle. Right now I have a Diono Radian and...

    Determine Amperage

    Thanks again. I am learning quite a bit from you all. I can confirm that the two 30 breakers are tied together with a pin and move together. Same for the 40 amp breakers. This is the original box from when the house was built in 1980. It is located in the garage, about ten feet from the dryer...

    Determine Amperage

    I should have noted that the main reason why I thought I might need more charging capability at home is that I tend to work from home Mondays and Fridays, so I have to get through four days of having access to only 120v or local superchargers (closest is 6 miles away).

    EoY 2019 Deliveries: Quality Control Thread

    Way back in 2000 when I was buying a new Accord, the paint on the bumpers was slightly darker silver than the rest of the car. The dealer claimed that it was because the bumpers were made out of plastic or some other sort of material different from the rest of the car. Not saying that is the...

    Determine Amperage

    Hello my Tesla technical experts. :) I received my Model 3 on 12/31 and am able to charge for free at work. The problem is work is 38 miles from my house, so I need a solution to charge at home besides the super slow 120v option. I want to leverage my dryer outlet but am confused by how the...

    EoY 2019 Deliveries: Quality Control Thread

    Took delivery at the factory on 12/31 AM. I need to get it detailed to better determine paint quality, but seems very good thus far. Only imperfections I can find are: Charging point door is not flush at the upper right corner. Two small nicks on the edge of the frunk that are only visible...

    Delivered With a Dozen Paint Defects...Am I Being Unreasonable?

    Picked up my car this morning at the factory. Only issue is a single nick on the edge of the frunk lid (not visible unless open) and a charger door that is very slightly misaligned. I could get the second item fixed, but only I would notice and that is only from a specific angle. All other...

    The process was super easy. 3 minutes to sign paperwork and get a referral code added. Been spent about 10 or 15 minutes inspecting the car. Everybody was extremely nice. We'll post pictures when I get home. The car had one mile on it.

    If they do not deliver your car tonight, I will be a fellow sufferer at the factory tomorrow. I also had the ghosted home delivery on 12/26, then radio silence until the text yesterday evening. Ordered 10/18. I am still not totally convinced they will have a car for me tomorrow. Good luck!

    I received as well. At first replied "confirm" then panicked and replied "CONFIRM". Did you receive a reply after confirming?
