    Model 3 “turned off” while charging

    This happens to me at Superchargers too. Never thought to see if it could be fixed, figured it was a typical Tesla glitch. There have been a few times where I have had to keep the door open the whole time I was charging.

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    Like I mentioned, I haven't had to make an insurance claim in a long time - more than 10 years. And just recently switched insurance companies, and the new company was not helpful at all about filing a claim. Which is why I posted and asked for advice. Thanks for the advice.

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    I had added more about why people suggested I go to the media but I deleted it. Don't want to keep talking about it in the public forum. The potential media frenzy over details I haven't shared here would be interesting in the current US political landscape, and would be prime clickbait fodder...

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    There is a sensational/political aspect to this which I think is why I got the couple of suggestions to go to the media. Anyway, it's mostly moot, again I was just curious what others thought.

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    People who I gave full details of the incident about suggested going to the media. There is more info I'm not giving here that makes it... worse. These details are unrelated to my insurance questions, though. But that's why I included the aside. Just wanted to hear other people's takes.

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    He got the Amazon van stuck, wedged between my car and another. He thought I could back up my car so he could get unstuck. However, my car was in an enclosure and though he couldn't see it, there was no space to reverse. He didn't believe me. Eventually he confirmed what I said to be true and he...

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    So this is part of why I ask for advice, I haven't had to do an insurance claim in a long long time, and recently switched insurance companies. My new insurance company told me to do it all through Amazon. Any tips on taking this to my insurance? Also, my car wasn't just out in the parking...

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    No police report but plenty of photos of the officer and the driver. The officer refused to take a police report because it was private property, also refused to ask the Amazon driver to apologize or calm down etc.

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    Yes, the independent shop was Tesla approved body shop. I told Amazon in advance about this, and insisted on an in-person adjustor for this reason (which they eventually sent, after escalating my case twice). It seems like they are just trying as hard as possible not to fix the car correctly?

    Amazon delivery van backed into my parked car, advice appreciated

    Posting this for advice. I have plenty of photos and video footage of what happened. Amazon delivery van (tall/long sprinter type) backed into my parked car at work, damaging the passenger side of the front bumper, two sensors, and the front passenger side fog light. I took the car to get...

    Mustang Mach-E Gets Great Reviews = Model 3 Challenger

    Sounds eerily similar to my situation, though I didn't get a two year warranty extension. Did you ask for that or did they offer it to you? I have paint and panel gap issues but didn't notify Tesla in time so they never got fixed. When you say "free $2500 set of rims" do you mean they gave you...

    TSLAQ departures and other antics

    I guess this post is supposed to be funny but it does seem particularly perverse to use phrases like "confirmed deaths" and "withered away" when referring to Twitter sock puppet accounts and/or trolls when we're literally still in a pandemic. Also kind of perverse that actual people died re...

    Auto Wipers are awful

    Autowipers cannot handle dark + fog + rain mist. That’s the bottom line. Tesla and its fanboys want to insist it’s no big deal or that every manf has this problem, and yet Tesla is supposed to be able to solve car problems with software that no other OEM can. Recently found that the best the...

    We must face facts - meat is the problem

    Meat market failure Meat is a market commodity so it is fundamental to understand whether and how markets work to allow transactions for both quantity, quality and credence elements. Consumers cannot easily transact for less or better if markets fail to convey relevant information about the...

    Service Center : is this normal?

    Yes. I had almost the same experience... over 2 years ago. Took me 3 weeks of calling to get my car back for what was supposed to be a quick fix (swapping out the 4 curbed rims that were delivered with the car for 4 new rims). Interestingly, when the heating elements started spontaneously...

    Navigation without cellular reception?

    This is accurate and great advice. Additional tips, especially if you have anxiety about losing LTE reception: -Install a map app on your phone that allows you to download maps offline if you are worried. I use Gaia GPS, worth every penny to me. -Physically write down or save in your phone the...

    GME and AMC stock action (out of main)

    I do zero investing by choice. That is my idea of what rejection of the norm is. I am ethically opposed to participating in the stock market due to its unseen/unconnected negative effects on people across the globe. Full disclosure: I have a very small IRA due to work matching. I still have it...

    GME and AMC stock action (out of main)

    My lived experience causes me to disagree with you. I am objectively successful, educated, and debt free, despite the Boomers in my life who have refused to retire or help me. I did this by refusing to participate in the system (well, beyond uni and student loans) and being frugal. I am not...

    GME and AMC stock action (out of main)

    Funnily enough, as a younger millennial on the cusp of Gen Z who does zero investing by choice, I agree with everything he is saying. The suicide and depression rates for our generation are very real and very scary. I say that as someone who has experienced mental health impacts from a life...

    Oh, coincidentally just replied with a similar thought.

    Coronavirus

    So sorry to hear about the troubles you and your family have been experiencing, especially after all the precautions you've taken. Thank you for sharing, as it's been insightful to follow along. As a lay person, I was thinking - could it be possible that the reason your wife was symptomatic so...

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    That was my thought, too. However, I could see no real benefit to the new UI beyond the fact that it looked "sleek" so that motivated me not just to complain, but to be very specific in how the poorly designed UI negatively impacted my workflow. Anyway, I was really (pleasantly) surprised, I...

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    I considered making a click-baity title so more people saw this but I'm not trying to be a troll on purpose. A recent UI update to a big business service I use in my professional life caused tangible productivity issues. I complained. Guess what happened next? I should add - the UI update...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    EAP has changed since then, phantom breaking has gotten worse. As a reference point, I was the other driver mentioned in this thread from Sept 2019: Phantom braking is the biggest issue with AutoPilot. This is from Sept 2020: Phantom breaking getting worse on 2020.36.3.1 My morning commute is...

    Model Y - Power steering issue

    Oh, that's really good to hear they are being responsive and timely, the least they could do considering the safety implications. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Model Y - Power steering issue

    How soon did they get you into the service center after making the initial appointment? Did you tell them power steering went out again after you took the car home?

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Since you live in Seattle, how frequently do you use EAP on the highways around here while it's dark, cloudy, foggy, and rainy out? Please let me know your experience. If my computer gets a BSOD, which has happened to me in the last couple years on a brand new $2k tower, it's not the end of the...

    Auto Wipers are awful

    They are doubling down and removed the stalk. Crazy. If they aren't able to solve the auto wiper issues via software, I wonder if they'll be forced to install hardware in the future. I am starting to wonder if things like the auto wipers weren't tested extensively enough outside of California.

    Model Y - Power steering issue

    That is crazy if true. Please update us with what happens next. Did you get your Model S back? Why was the Model S in for service?

    Honda blindspot camera

    Agree, that would be pretty cool. The funny thing is that the only reason I regularly look at the visualization of the car on the MCU is to check my blindspot. Why would Tesla make the visualization available and prominent on the screen if they didn't want you to look at it while driving, even...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Awwww shucks Mark, all you had to do was ask! Ask and ye shall receive :) Here's one from only 3 days ago! EAP began turning into a lane with a car in it. Notice the car in the other lane swerves out of the way, avoiding a crash. EAP then cancels the lane change. Front cam - attempted lane...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Happens to me frequently now. You're not wrong to rant or ask these questions. Sorry there are so many fanboy trolls trying to gaslight you into not believing your own eyes and ears and, in my case, mild whiplash.

    Does anyone feel like NoA has regressed since it first came out 2 years ago?

    Yes. I loved NoA when it first came out. My little nieces and nephews thought it was the coolest thing because prior to it coming out they always wanted/expected the car to take its own turns. Then Tesla updated NoA and I stopped using it due to many of the issues you relate here.

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    Wow, sorry it had to come to that. Really interested to hear what happens next.

    Autonomous Car Progress

    That is an interesting question! I try to use EAP as intended - at least one hand on the wheel, paying attention to the road ahead - so while the disengagements I've experienced due to the sunlight have been startling (as they were unexpected), the situation wasn't immediately dangerous because...

    Autonomous Car Progress

    Thanks for the link. Again, due to different latitudes, I don't think this video would be representative of Washington state in December, particularly in the afternoon. The sun would be different - different angle, different intensity, different reflections on the road.
  39. ladysbff

    Autonomous Car Progress

    Understood, thanks for clarifying that. Didn't mean to compare predictions between EAP and FSD, but rather the limitations of the hardware + sunlight.
  40. ladysbff

    Autonomous Car Progress

    Your experience lines up with recent (worsening) issues I've experienced with EAP and sunlight: Autopilot blinded, disengaged by sun on interstate I think "edge case" sunlight has the potential to cause major safety issues with autonomous driving. I put edge case in quotes because for folks at...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    Lmao Mark. No need to continue pursuing the pissing contest, especially with a woman who has a longer post history than you. Go ahead and post your salary and/or stream of income and/or portfolio to support your bold claims. I'll do the same if I make less than you. While you're at it, why...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    When I test drove the 3, it was actually the polite young Tesla employee who accompanied me on my test drive that solidified my decision to buy the car that day. Among other FUD-informed questions, I asked "What about Elon?" Her response - looking straight into my eyes: "There are a whole lot...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    You have owned a Model Y for less than 7 months. Seems bold to make sweeping statements about other current and previous owners. I'll speak for myself when I say -I spent 5 years being an Elon enthusiast before finally getting a 3 -Do zero investing, in TSLA or otherwise -Raised in the land of...

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    This is exactly where my apprehension lies with Tesla's intense focus on FSD. It seems novel issues can arise relating to core car functionality due to the implementation of new technologies - your 2005 BMW's functioning auto wipers seems to be an example of that. The wipers and Tesla's...

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    This is my first car with auto wipers and I've found them pretty terrible and inadequate. Wondering, since you have presumably driven other makes, did the non-Tesla cars with auto wipers have full functionality on the stalk to allow you to adjust the speed using the stalk itself? My biggest...
