    Help! Tesla added $9k to my Model Y order

    Just gotta say something.... If you look at the OP's posts, everything seems a tad incredulous. Placed order for CPO late August 2019, got 'screwed' on price; Early Sept, 2019, got 'screwed' on delivery; Jan 2020 placed order for MY and got 'screwed' again? Didn't check on order for 1.5...

    Has anyone traded in their MX for an MY?

    Thanks @elindley01 ! This is just what we were looking for! We've been so very lucky in that we haven't had NEARLY the issues you've had with your X... but are we just biding our time? This is the main question! I was unaware of the "Acceleration Boost", and that may be a deciding factor...

    Has anyone traded in their MX for an MY?

    I've got a 2017 MX 100D with every upgrade I could get. LOVE the car! However, although we've never had any issues that required an SC visit sans a replacement windshield, there are a couple things that are now happening that make me just a touch concerned. Occasionally, the charge port...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    When a situation happens that you want Tesla to review, you immediately push your voice control button on the steering wheel and start by saying "Bug Report"... immediately followed by a succinct explanation of what you feel is a 'bug'. For instance: I had a regular area on I-5 that had an...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    I have driven that stretch, and don't recall my X (radar equipped, if that matters in this case... probably not ;)) ever reacting. However, I don't have the chime active, as I... er... "the car"... routinely drives 10+ over o_O. Next time I drive that stretch, and they're actually LIT (seems...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    Interesting! Does it drastically slow down (brake), or is it just an area that the display-only gets wrong?
  7. Brian's ReX

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    That does suck! I'd be discouraged too! Did you do a Bug Report when these things happened? I've had so few (knocking on wood), but when they happen, I immediately file a Bug Report.

    Help me decide: Model Y or Mach-E

    We are a Tesla bunch... with 4 cars in the group; 1 MX (me), 2 M3, 1 MS, and 1 MY. The M3's have 78K and 64K miles... the MS has 114K miles, my MX has 40K and the MY has a whopping 2K. The only SC visit was me (unfortunately) for a broken windshield. Of course, the largest freakin' windshield...

    Model X Split in 2

    Are you kidding me!?! All the supplies purchased at Costco in the back were lost!!! Great the the occupants were unhurt... but the 48-pack of peanut butter???? Oh, the carnage!! :eek:

    Reservation transfer

    I gave my M3 preorder (submitted the first day of reservations for the M3) to my nephew. He now has the car, and has for over 3 years... We weren't able to 'transfer' anything, but were told that once the config email arrived, then I could change the name from myself to my nephew. Easy peasy...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    Thanks @thesmokingman The wording of this makes it appear that Tesla Vision is the way of the future, and they'll be discontinuing radar altogether. I guess I'll bite-the-bullet and get my MY on order! :) Now, to decide between the long range and the performance? Argh! The salesperson...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    I read on another thread that Tesla was keeping radar on the new MX and MS? If this is true (unsubstantiated), then the omission of radar on the M3 and MY would seem to be one of price-point (i.e., keeping them cheap as possible). Not a fan of this, if true. Radar should, in this case be an...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    Interesting point! Is the Y's turning radius larger than the X's? I feel like the windows on the Y would provide a better view than the X, but a test drive will help secure (or disprove) that point. I had an Audi with 360 degree view... it was San Fran Tastic! I'll never understand why our...

    Thinking of trading my X for a Y, but V.O. concerns me!

    I've been reading the posts (of which there are many!) about Vision-Only MY's. I am a huge fan of EAP/FSD, and use it daily. I will state that while many of you experience "phantom braking", I rarely have that issue. I've got dozens of thousands of miles using AP and NoAP, and can state that...

    Elon Musk: Model Y will outsell the Model S, X, and 3 COMBINED... really?

    True... but neither can my 2020 GMC 3500 HD! With all the ridiculous rules against mod'ing newer diesels, rolling coal is not a thing any longer. At least in my Snowflake State :mad:

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I don't believe the recall remedy is upgrading to MCU2, although I could be wrong. I think it's simply a memory upgrade for MCU1. But I'll tell you from experience that you will not regret spending the money to get MCU2! I am SO glad I bit the bullet - finally. Feels like a new car!

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    You ask for my experience, and then pick my answer apart. Not sure what the end game is here? Let's just agree that we all have differing experiences, as well as different opinions. Just stating fact here, but in my experience phantom braking is MUCH better now, as compared to 2019. That is...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Good question. I use EAP regardless of weather conditions, which as we all know in the Seattle area are quite varied! o_O One of my most interesting experiences in bad weather was during a Husky (football) game that was postponed due to bad weather and lightning strikes (Sept 2019) that were...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Glad to! No, my old touchscreen was not left in the car, and I never asked about it. Kinda forgot. ;) But I wouldn't want it anyway... just something (for me, at least) to throw away. :confused: My experience was frikkin AWESOME! Mad props (isn't that what kids say these days?) to the...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Why, oh why, does there HAVE to be such polarized opinions for how each car's EAP/FSD system works?!? I totally get why someone whose system isn't working well would think it's trash... as well as I totally understand why someone who's system has been working well would praise the system...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Thanks! I finally got through using the app and asked about the new price, which they promptly replied that I would get the $1500 price! Going in tomorrow, not sure how long it will take, but am pretty stoked!!

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    I have experienced phantom braking and speed limit reset many times over many, many thousands of miles on AP. I did my best to notice patterns, and the only pattern that made sense to me for the speed limit reset was when I was in a far-left lane that had an exit that I was bypassing. Once I...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I ordered and scheduled my MCU2 upgrade on 15 January, 2021, and was told the cost would be $2500 for the MCU, new screen, and no FM tuner (was given the option of adding FM for $500 but declined). I hadn't been on TMC for a few months, so didn't realize MCU2 had dropped from $2500 to $1500...

    No Netflix after FSD upgrade - TeslaCam not working well

    You are correct... I misstated. I had AP 2.5, not MCU2.5. I checked, and I do have MCU1. But the fact remains: After getting AP3.0 and plunking down $2K, absolutely nothing is different. The only thing different is when I click on the car's info... it says FSD. Big whoop. Since I have no...

    No Netflix after FSD upgrade - TeslaCam not working well

    I just got home from getting my FSD upgrade today. Half of the trip it was 'Calibrating'. But after calibration was complete, the AP worked exactly as before! I don't know exactly what I was expecting... but I assumed the stop light/sign recognition would be there, as would the 'traffic...

    2020.12 Update

    Just drove my first 60 miles on 2020.12 today. No perceptible increase in range, but my experience with EAP has been terrific! EAP now drives like I might in all situations I noted today! All the "lane hunting" appears to be gone, and the wheel (which I have a finger on at all times) seems to...

    TeslaCam Always Recording?

    Today was the first time I have driven ReX since I got the latest (to me) update to 2020.12. When I got home from a half-hour drive, I got a message stating that my drive was full?!? I've had the same drive in since early last year (April, I believe) and I have never tapped the icon to record...

    Is Your MCU1 Model X Still on 2019.40.2.1?

    I, too, am feeling like I'm an afterthought. I have been a Tesla superfan... but I can't help but feel that I made a mistake getting the more expensive X... the Model 3 is now Tesla's bread and butter. :(

    Car is always dirty ....?

    I, too, had my X coated with Modesta ceramic, and I'm going on 24K miles/2 years and it works as beautifully as the day it was new! I love to keep my beauty clean, and dirt just rolls off this coating! Many times I'll drive through some cruddy/muddy areas and just hit it for a few seconds with...

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    This. Nicely stated, my friend. I was trying to figure out how to verbalize these thoughts... but thankfully you nicely put my thoughts in words. Think it looks 'cool' or not... there's no denying the engineering beauty of this beast. Thus, my deposit is placed, and I wait. And wait. And...

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    I also found it interesting that the "Y" reveal caused such grumblings like "BOOORRRIIINNNGGGG" and "I was hoping for something more futuristic" and "It's just a freaking Model 3 with a fastback!!!" and "Tesla has lost it's edge".... and on and on and on. Fast forward to today... Tesla...

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    I was in meetings as this thing was revealed... I got a pic texted to my phone, and my heart sunk. However, as @WilliamG states... as I watched the video (except for the embarrassing glass debacle), I became more and more interested. Does it 'look' like a truck? NO. But does it look like...

    Supercharger - Bothell, WA

    Although I don't use SC's much... I have noticed as I pass the Lynnwood SC that it appears to often have a queue. Depending on how far out of the way Lynnwood would be, you may want to take that into account. Just my 2 cents

    Mud flaps and CD drag coefficient on the Model X ?

    Gotchya. Well then, yes, flaps would definitely help in that situation. I interpreted 'trashed' as beyond repair. My bad.

    Mud flaps and CD drag coefficient on the Model X ?

    You quoted my post... but maybe didn't read it? I don't have mud flaps, and my PPF has beautifully protected my car for 20K miles. My nephew, who has a 3, had it PPF protected, and with 30K miles, it's perfect. Mud flaps are not the end-all. They are an aesthetic choice that might have a...

    Mud flaps and CD drag coefficient on the Model X ?

    What looks nicer is in the eye of the beholder ;) However, being one that had to have his FWD's repainted due to the sandblasting effect... I would be inclined to go for a mudflap that has a bit more width than the OP's pics show. In my experience, it's not the debris from the bottom of the...

    Regen suddenly limited and nothing changes that

    I'm not convinced that it's temp related either. I, too, live in the PNW... keep my X garaged, and the garage is a pretty constant 60-65 degrees. Even says so in the X's dash and in the app. Now, after updating to 32.12.3, I get the regen-limit dots/dashes when I first get in the car - even...

    Why are we always being overcharged

    Not to mention that the tax on gasoline is intended to go to maintaining our roadways. Not sure about tax on electricity... but I highly doubt it goes directly to road maintenance. More than likely goes into the General Fund, or to maintaining the power company's public right-of-way. So the...

    Why is Autopilot always trying to Kill me?

    Lordy. People that set their expectations via YouTube, or the Googleator are just setting themselves up for failure - or at the very least, a very unpleasant experience. I learned the limitations of AP through VERY CAREFUL use. Couple that with as much understanding as I could muster about...

    More stupid gimmicks coming soon

    I've yet to have this happen in a parking structure, probably due to the noise the wheels make being amplified by the concrete box we're driving in... but I have certainly had it happen in numerous outdoor parking lots. Especially when going past the doorways of business, etc., or when people...

    AP zig zag down road

    You'll see my posts in this thread about how much I disliked the V10 behavior - and was embarrassed to have any passengers experience the wonkieness of EAP... However! I got 32.11.1 on Thursday, and used EAP much of the weekend - and I have to say that not only is the 'lane hunting' and...

    V 10 Autopilot behavior change

    Exactly. This has happened in all 4 lanes to me. It's actually less 'pronounced' in the far left lane (and maybe the far right lane as well, I just don't spend much time there o_O) due to only having traffic on one side of me. When in the middle lanes, if both side vehicles are encroaching...

    V 10 Autopilot behavior change

    While I certainly do not dispute that giving large vehicles (semi truck, etc.) a wider berth... what I am concerned about - and I assume others as well - is the method AP uses to give this extra space. When going slow, as in rush-hour traffic, it's hardly noticeable. However, when going at...

    V 10 Autopilot behavior change

    Well said. Agreed.
