    Credit Unions with good rates that accept applicants anywhere within the US?

    What good would that do me when applying for a loan to purchase the car? I.e., I need it before delivery.

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

    I'm not an expert like many of you battery wizzes in here, but I was able to reclaim some range from my 2021 SR+ which has 24,000 miles on it (originally rated at 263 miles). The estimated range had dropped to as low as 231 miles in the past month or two. However, I was able to reclaim a good...

    Tax Credit Question Is it true ?

    Credit Unions with good rates that accept applicants anywhere within the US?

    What does it look like on the website? I see an order agreement document link, but that doesn't include sales tax (or will this document show up once I get my VIN?). I see this, but it's not labeled as the MVPA:

    Credit Unions with good rates that accept applicants anywhere within the US?

    When does Tesla make the MVPA available? I'm also going through Adelfi (I haven't initiated the loan process yet, because I don't have a VIN) and this could be a problem if there's a delay getting the MVPA...

    AliExpress Wheel Covers

    They look good, but doesn’t seem that the valve stem is easily accessible. Is that correct?

    MY MSM with gray or black wheel covers, please post photos!

    OK, now THAT sucks! Also increases the chances of breaking a clip if you have to take the cover off everytime you add air.

    MY MSM with gray or black wheel covers, please post photos!

    Good luck with that, as stated above, everything comes from China anyway. At least when you get it from AliExpress or whatever, you cut out the middleman. I found the wheels that yellowr6 mentioned on AliExpress for $153 shipped. Similar wheels on Amazon are going for $200+

    MY MSM with gray or black wheel covers, please post photos!

    Ok, those look totally badass! Going to look on Ali now to find them for our on-order Y. Also, where’d you get the center caps? All the covers I see on AliExpress don’t have the Tesla caps (for obvious reasons).

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    You know that you can have favorites in the Tesla navigation as well, right? And even if you don't, all you have to do is pull up a contact or favorite destination in Maps and hit "Send to Tesla app" with an iPhone. Boom, done and it will automatically plot a course. You don't even have to type...

    Credit Unions with good rates that accept applicants anywhere within the US?

    Do you need to join Adelfi before applying for a loan, or can you just Same. But I applied at Adelfi and was granted membership within two hours.

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Can someone PLEASE tell me what the big deal is with CarpPlay????? I had CarPlay on my B9 Audi A4 and it was great for YouTube Music integration, maps, calendar stuff, etc. It was great when car infotainment systems were crap, but most are getting pretty good now... With my Tesla, I still get...

    Any happy camper here with the price cut?

    Quick question, is the IRS extension for the $7500 through the full month of March? Or does it mean we have to take delivery by March 1? I can’t seem to find clarity on this.

    Any happy camper here with the price cut?

    Happy camper here. Have always wanted a Y to join our 3 SR+, but the price had gotten outrageous. Finally pulled the trigger today on a Y in Deep Blue Metallic with the 19” wheels and tow hitch.

    Looking to cancel order due to removal of USS

    We’re about to order a Model Y now due to the price drop. So are there no beeps/distance callouts at all now that the USS have been removed? I know on my 3, it tells me down to the inches how far I am away from my workbench when I pull in the garage.

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

    My range has been shooting downward quickly as I approach 20,000 miles. Started with a max range of 263 miles, and now down to 236 with a 2021 Model 3. Just last month; I was getting around 245 to 247 miles (as stated in the Tesla app and Tessie). Now it says 242 at max charge. Funny thing is, I...

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    I parked head-in (red). He was parked back-in on my driver’s side (green). So when he drove off, drivers side fender cam got ‘em. I rarely back in, because I’m usually out shopping or getting groceries and it’s easier to load up with open space than try to squeeze a cart between two parked cars...

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    Got a call back from the department that handles diminished value claims for USAA. They're going to cut me a check for $1,002 for diminished value. They said that since there was no structural damage and that no panels had to be replaced, that's the value they came to. I'm not gonna argue... I...

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    He seemed more worried about the Miata. As for me, another update. USAA contacted the policyholder about the damage. Guy initially said he didn’t recall the incident. I uploaded the video to the USAA claims representative and he called the guy back. He accepted full responsibility and USAA is...

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    I had his license plate number from the video. All Geico had to do was run his plate. His name, vehicle make/model/year, and insurance info show up in my claim portal for the incident on Geico.com. I used that info when calling his insurance carrier, USAA.

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    Quick follow-up. Car came out of the repair as good as new about a month ago. Repair bill was roughly $3,000 including blending the paint in on the drivers side. I was only out my $250 deductible. Got an email today from Geico informing me: So far so good. I also contacted his insurance...

    Meet the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT: an EV That'll Kick a Hellcat's Ass

    Huh? It looks production-intent and not like some “we aren’t building this” pie in the sky nonsense. There’s nothing out of line with the exception of the glass roof and rear seats. Besides, Chrysler has done this before:

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

    Average summer temperatures are in the mid-90s (around 35C) here in NC. But based on what you're saying, my degradation seems within spec. I typically charge to about 85 percent at the beginning of the week and drive until I'm down to about 25 to 30 percent. Rinse and repeat. I Supercharge made...

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

    My 2021 SR+ is showing 5.4% battery degradation (usable capacity 50.7 kWh, NCA) after 16,000 miles, according to Tessie. Seems a bit disappointing to me at least. I used to get the rated 263 miles per charge, now I'm down to 247 to 249-ish.

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    I just did a chat with Geico, and they said that after the repairs are complete, I can contact his insurance company (USAA) and file a diminished value claim (the car only has 14,000 miles on it). I didn’t even know that was an option.

    Pickup owner's door hit my Model 3, Sentry caught on camera. What now?

    I was able to see the damage in the sunlight. The door is dented in two place, 1) where the paint chip is, and 2) about a foot below at the second impact point where the scrapes were. Definitely glad I filed the claim. I thought about that as well, but I figured, I'm paying for insurance, so I...

    Contacted Geico; it was so easy (that a caveman could do it). When I told her that it was the Tesla that was hit and that I had video footage with the license plate, she was practically giddy with excitement at nailing his ass. Already have an appointment setup with the collision repair shop...

    Was out eating dinner with my son, and parked far away from everyone else against a curb. Sure enough, a Silverado parks right next to me. We finished eating and ran to the car because a storm was brewing. Didn't notice the scratches and rear door ding until I got home. Was doing some stuff in...

    Auto Emergency Braking is Disabled message, music/media audio stopped working suddenly

    Can I use my Tesla Wall Charger to charge a VW ID.4 with an adapter?

    Awesome, thanks! That's one less thing for me to worry about :) Would have kept it an "all Tesla" family, but couldn't justify the cost difference between the base ID.4 Pro RWD and the cheapest Model Y. I'm assuming something like this would work...
