    IRS weighs in on tax rebate, mostly bad news for Model Y

    No surprise. This was posted in August.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    Thanks for the info. This makes me feel better. I will still be apprehensive about my car charging in frigid weather until I have some successful charges at that temperature again.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    Brentwood Supercharger in Nashville, TN.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    I was only at 3% the second time, but had been running defrost on high for five minutes in an effort to warm things up. I am concerned the cold is causing me to have a poor connection.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    There were other Teslas charging. The charger was the Brentwood Supeecharger near Nashville TN.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    I did precondition. It may have been limited due to my 5% state of charge.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    On the way home I supercharged without any problem. The temperature was 45 degrees. Apparently, the bitter cold caused us to be unable to supercharge when it was 16 degrees F. I have no confidence that I will be able to supercharge when the temp is below 20 degrees F in the future.

    No supercharge in bitter cold

    We had a bad experience this weekend on Christmas Eve when the outside temperature was 16 degrees Fahrenheit. We arrived with only 4% range left. After plugging in, the indicator stayed blue and the inside screen said “starting to charge.” After 60 seconds, our Model 3 screen said “Charging...

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    I don’t think it meets any of condition 2 criteria. Thus, the need for a new definition.

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Yes it is heavy. Notice a vehicle has to be 4WD or weigh over 6K lbs.

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    BTW. The Rivian R1S meets all these specs and the lower specification R1S starts at $78K. This vehicle is why I bought stock in Rivian.

    Supercharger - Chattanooga, TN - Hamilton Place

    The transformer was there. I did not check for a meter.

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    The only thing close to defining SUV in government documents I have found so far is Title 49, Subtitle B, Chapter V, Section 523. Most CUV and SUVs in the market don’t qualify. I think there will be a better definition developed for the Inflation Reduction Act.

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    I don’t see anything in your link defining difference between a car and SUV. EPA is not a good guide. They just use whatever the manufacturer provides.
  15. Rusty1

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Clear as mud. What is the height difference? 6 inches. What if it is 3 inches? My point is the government will have to now define based on some measurements. I still have not seen those to date.

    Supercharger - Chattanooga, TN - Hamilton Place

    I stopped by today and construction looks complete. Tried charging. No go. Apparently still needs to be inspected and turned on.

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    I drove a Prius for two years. Engineering marvel. It made me want BEV all the more. I think PHEVs are a good transition vehicle, but hauling around an engine and transmission is very inefficient. Toyota is letting good (PHEV) keep them from being great (BEV).
  18. Rusty1

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    I don’t see a definition for SUV in your attachment.
  19. Rusty1

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    I think the GM Lyric qualifies as an SUV.
  20. Rusty1

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Toyota???

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Tesla will drop the M3 LR to $54,999 come Jan. 1st.

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Is the Model Y an SUV? The government needs to define this better. Here is a piece out of the only government document that speaks to automobile, off road, van, or light pickup. Model Y might slip in with three rows with the back two folding down (a van classification). Model Y meets only one...

    Showroom and Service Center - Chattanooga, TN.

    About two miles from the end of I-24. Off of I-75 near Hamilton Place Mall.

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    Ford just announced price increases for F-150 Lightning. Based on their new prices, I expect Cybertruck to be in this general range: Single Motor: $59K Dual Motor: $79K Quad Motor: $96K https://electrek.co/2022/08/09/f150-lightning-price-increase/amp/

    Model 3 only charging at 16A “ Poor Grid Power Quality”

    I got my car back and it charges at 48 Amps again! The work took 3 days instead of one. Otherwise, happy and poor.

    Model 3 only charging at 16A “ Poor Grid Power Quality”

    I have an on board charger issue. Wall charger used and getting 48A for four years. Suddenly dropped to 16A max. Error message says “ grid problem.” Tried at two additional chargers with same message. Taking to service tomorrow. Of course, I am 3 months and 5K miles out of warranty. $1,800 to...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Honestly, after driving with Safety Score for 6 months. I am more excited about driving my car “normal again” than I am about using FSD.
  28. Rusty1

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I finally, finally got the download tonight. I have been waiting 5 months for this. Yeah! I had a score of 98 today when it downloaded. Took it for a drive including a roundabout. It did very good!

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Anybody new getting FSD since late December yet? (Fingers crossed)

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I have been waiting since the second week of January. 5 months and counting…

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Elon needs to clarify the 100,000 number. He said 60,000 at the end of December. No one has been added since then in the US and I don’t think there were 40,000 Canadians added. BTW I am one of those waiting since the second week of January. 🥲
  32. Rusty1

    FSD Beta 10.11

    I agree. I am guessing there are 100K if you count those of us waiting to get in with a safety score over 98.
  33. Rusty1

    Is Tesla still giving out the FSD beta to qualified drivers?

    Good question. It implies the safety score will not be necessary.
  34. Rusty1

    Is Tesla still giving out the FSD beta to qualified drivers?

    Where did 100K number come from. Last I heard there were 60K beta testers in December 2021. No new US testers have been added since then. Did Tesla add 40K testers from Canada? https://insideevs.com/news/580516/tesla-fsd-beta-100k-test-drivers-musk-says/amp/
  35. Rusty1

    FSD Beta 10.11

    It is the closest reaction we have to dislike. I don’t disagree with the statement. To add Canadian testers without adding more US testers is disappointing.

    No Safety Score Showing - USA - iOS -v2022.8.2 (latest)

    Now we all wait for Elon to expand the Beta Program in the US.
  37. Rusty1

    Drove 2000+ miles, safety score 99 but no FSD beta yet. Please help.

    It is not closed. Just paused since Christmas 2021.
  38. Rusty1

    Friend ready to give up on FSD Beta Safety Score

    Make it four months with no new invites.
  39. Rusty1

    What does FSD Beta Onboarding look like?

    I am glad for you guys in Canada. I have had 98+ since mid January. No expansion of Beta Program for us in the US. Still stuck in Safety Score Jail.
  40. Rusty1

    FSD Beta 10.11

    Well my Model 3 just upgraded to 2022.8.2. Which means Elon’s not letting any of us newbies in this version. The waiting continues. Maybe he will let us in v11. I have been working to keep my safety score above 98 since January.

    FSD beta V10.11

    Does it work?

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    Since this seems to be my new way of life, I thought I would share pointers of life in Safety Score Jail: 1. Drive like you are 80 years old. 2. Stop using smart cruise and autopilot. Make a habit of following someone at two second intervals to get good “following minutes.” You have to...

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    It is easy to preach when you are in the program and not in Safety Score Jail! Maybe, since Tesla seems to have capped the Beta program at 60K testers, they should kick out existing testers, such as yourself, and let in new testers to get data from different parts of the country. You could...

    FSD Beta

    I agree with your perspective. I am tired of being stuck in an eternal test cycle where I have to drive like an old man. If I wanted to drive like this, I could have bought a Leaf and saved a lot of money. Haha
  45. Rusty1

    Where is Request FSD and/or Safety Score - New Model Y

    Good luck. I have been waiting over a month.

    FSD Beta- WHEN

    I have a 100 and have been waiting four weeks. Definitely frustrating.
  47. Rusty1

    FSD Beta Version 2021.44.30.20 Release. Now What?

    Not all the cars. I have a score of 100 and have been waiting on an install for weeks. My Model 3 is already on 2022.4.5.
  48. Rusty1

    FSD Beta Version 2021.44.30.20 Release. Now What?

    Well my Model 3 just updated to 22.4 last night while I have been above 98 waiting on FSD. I guess I have to wait on v11.

    FSD Beta 10.10 Release Notes

    With the current delay, it is looking like 10.10.1 may be coming.
