    Lots of refinement between 2020 and 2022 Model Y

    Are they just more solid-feeling? Or does it have to do with double-pane glass?

    Tesla MY safer than even the M3?? (interesting read)

    I watched that yesterday. Great video. The bottom line is we can all feel good knowing we're driving in what are considered among the safest cars on the road. The roof strength makes sense to me, given the M3 has the bar across the middle for strength, and the MY doesn't.

    Model Y price cut may come when demand is satiated?

    You never know. When I ordered my MYLR in June 2020, after I placed my order, and while I was waiting for a VIN, the price dropped $3K. FSD also went up by $1K, to $8,000. Tesla honored the new price but stated I also had to take the new price for FSD, which I did...and still saved $2K. If you...

    New Heads Up Display for Model Y / 3

    Any compelling alternatives to a Model Y?

    I have had the MYLR since June 2020, and while I keep an eye on the market, I haven't seen anything that has the combo of features, tech, charging infrastructure, and overall satisfaction that I'm getting from the Y. I just looked at a review of the BMW i4 and as is the case with many of the EVs...

    Why CarPlay?

    I’d like CarPlay too but I haven’t had it for over a year now and don’t even think about it any more.

    Premium Connectivity question

    I can’t imagine not having the live traffic. Mine just went to paid after a year and for $10 it’s a no brainer.

    Do Not Understand Tesla Rationale for Why There is No Sirius/XM in Model 3 or Y

    Probably costs too much to license the right to have it in the car. Just stream from the phone.

    How about a drive in movie mode?

    Ty hat would be cool. I did a drive in combined with a camping weekend in the Model Y. I put the screen in screen cleaning mode and it kept it dark, as I needed the radio on to hear the movie.

    Autopark People!

    It’s garbage anyway. It barely works and is very buggy. You’re not missing much.

    Model Y "Expected Delivery Date" Craziness

    My advice to anyone ordering a car - don't change anything. It will totally mess with the delivery date.

    Towed with 20 MYP today = abysmal

    Yeah, plenty of videos on the abysmal range for towing. Not a great use case for Teslas.

    No park assist with update 2021.4.16

    Does park assist actually work for some of you? I gave up on it a long time ago. It never sees spots in a parking lot that are obvious and should be sensed, and at times it suggests a parking spot if I'm in a drive thru or at a traffic intersection. The software for that seems poorly written, or...

    More Y Competition

    I think making an EV is far easier than building out a reliable, nationwide infrastructure. It's the key. That said, I also know Elon has talked so often about how scaling up production is the most difficult thing, and that building a prototype is comparatively easy.

    Used to be, I barely spotted any. Now I might see 1-2/day.

    Model Y Range LR Vs Performance

    I went with the Long Range. For me, range was the most important consideration. It's still the fastest car I've ever owned, and I've owned Mustang GTs. I tried the $2K boost, but felt while fun, I really didn't need it and the extra wear on the tires if/when I got on the accelerator. I tend to...

    Install was super easy for the service center. So worth it. Best garage opener I've ever had in a car.

    cruise brakes automatically in traffic? is this normal?

    Ahhh...that makes sense, that the divided highway is what the Autosteer uses to determine when to set the above mileage restriction.

    MY with new console spotted today

    I got these, and they don't have any ugly logos on them. They seem identical to the Tesla ones. I like them a lot, and I've been using them since last August, so I've gotten the warm weather and snow experience. 2020-2021 Tesla Model Y Floor Mats Interior Liners

    cruise brakes automatically in traffic? is this normal?

    Great description above! Technically, "Autopilot" is a family of capabilities, which included with all new Teslas, includes both TACC and Autosteer, and for some, the optional $10K FSD features. So really, whether you're using TACC alone or Autosteer (which essentially is TACC plus lane...

    MY LR, when to order?

    None taken. I don't consider my decision to be pot luck, though. I researched for months before taking the plunge. It was based on easing my range anxiety, developing a charging strategy, prepping my house for a wall connector, and thinking through the next 5-10 years of my life...where I'll be...

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

    Boy, you're so right about the F-150 being so central to Ford's sustainability. Sandy Munro talks about the issue the big three truck makers have. The CT is really a radical design, and as amazing as I think it looks and is, I think a lot of traditional truck buyers (most are just normal truck...

    Tesla friendly campgrounds

    You have a point there. Could be. I was the only car in a sea of huge RVs. I think the one-off, small, family owned sites are the way to go. This one was a major RV place...kids running all over, pool, lots of facilities. Where we wound up felt more like camping.

    Acceleration Boost Still Available?

    Does the AB retain its settings between owners? Or is it software reset if ownership changes? I've seen people's posts indicating both.

    Tesla friendly campgrounds

    Quick story...last August, the missus and I decided to take a weekend and go "camping" in the Model Y. We got the mattress set up, the 14-50 and TT-30 adapters, and hit the road. We booked a campground. When we showed up, the guy at the RV place said we couldn't stay there, due to "liability"...

    New features arriving for Model Y in 2021

    Air suspension is not in the works, that I'm aware of, for 3/Y, for 2021. Also bear in mind, Tesla doesn't do "model years" like other manufacturers do. They do incremental updates when they're ready.

    cruise brakes automatically in traffic? is this normal?

    There is a known "stealth braking" issue with Teslas. I know in my 2020 MY, I avoid using TACC/Autosteer on certain roads, because it will brake with no warning - and it's quite jarring. For instance, on a road with cars on the shoulder, it will do that sometimes, even though I'm nowhere near...

    Auto pilot in stop and go freeway traffic

    I think stop and go traffic is the perfect time to use TACC and/or Auto Steer. I use the following distance of "4", and it's fine. The only abrupt stopping behavior is when I'm on a road where the speed limit is 50 or 55, and I come to a light. It rolls in so fast to the stopped traffic; I...

    No more album art after 2021.4.3 :-(

    I just noticed after installing 2021.4.3, that the countdown time for the current track now shows...I don't remember seeing that before...on an iPhone using the Music app and Overcast podcast app, and it works great. It's small text, so maybe that's why. Am I out of my mind, or is this new?

    Winter tires needed for a MYP March delivery in Boston?

    Those 21" tires will really stink in deep snow. The 20" inductions with the all-weather tires aren't great, either.

    Test driving Model Y as Model 3 owner

    NHTSA rated it as a 7.9% chance of rollover, the lowest of any SUV/crossover ever tested. Rollover rating is 5 stars. Actually the MY is 5 stars all around. You can't get safer, statistically, than any other SUV/crossover on the road. Add in the built-in safety features and you simply can't do...

    MY LR, when to order?

    My advice is to not overthink it. Just order the MY when you're ready. Teslas are, by design, iteratively improved vehicles; you will never get something that will be "future-proofed" forever. Just get what you want, when you want it. I ordered mine last July, and I don't have dimming outside...

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

    Ohhh...I don't know. With the big three looking to electrify their trucks, I can see someone on the fence on what is a radical design with the CT, and the reliable and venerable F-150, for non-Tesla owners, most people may be inclined to go with what they know. In fact, I think most ICE truck...
