    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    I am enjoying my ownership of the Rivian, but I’ve only driven it about 550 miles. Other than some blemishes upon delivery, I’ve not experienced any software or hardware problems. I don’t drive aggressively. The R1T has a great ride, I have the standard 21” wheels. The air suspension is...

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    I’ve been driving my R1T for a couple months now, but have only charged it at home. On the Rivian website, one can sign up for a text drive. I signed up, but was never offered the opportunity to drive one before my truck was delivered. If you’re interested in driving one, check out a...

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    The Rivians do have ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers. It just doesn’t show the distance in inches. The Rivian does offer rear cross traffic alerts and true blind spot mirrors along with surround view parking. I use the front camera when parking in my garage. The cameras are not as sharp as...

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    I don’t have many miles on my R1T, but I haven’t experienced any problems or issues. Are you close to a Rivian Service Center? Have you joined a Rivian forum? There are two popular ones. Feel free to DM me if you have any questions.

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    I replaced my Y with a Rivian R1T. It actually rides better than the MY over most surfaces. I have not used it as a truck yet, just transportation.

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    Who did you use for solar? I had a deposit down on a roof for about 9 months and could never get an answer to simple questions so I didn’t proceed with my solar tile roof. The whole deal was aggravating.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I would have asked for the manager if I had been refused access to the interior of the car prior to payment. You’ll have an opportunity to complain about that when you get your survey from Tesla. We’re looking forward to seeing your photos. I hope you enjoy your new Tesla in good health!

    When you get your email survey you can give feedback, but I don’t know if anyone cares. I’m sorry your delivery was subpar. Ivan was my delivery guy. I was lucky this time. Orlando facility is way too crowded. Drive your new car in good health!

    Are your door handles noisy?

    I recently took delivery of a new Model S and I have it set to fold the mirrors when locking. The handles are set to automatically present upon unlock. When the vehicle unlocks, my mirrors unfold and the handles pop out making a loud whirring noise. Do your cars do this too?

    No. This was near EOQ. I was supposed to pay, accept delivery and return when the parts arrived. They even texted me later that day because “the manager thought I wanted it.”

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    The issue is that I’d be driving one with a visible unclipped bumper for an indefinite period of time. I’d feel stupid paying for a new car needing repairs. The last time I needed a new bumper, the replacement arrived damaged and I had to wait for a second one. Lastly, I live over an hour’s...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Here’s a photo of my new Model S. I have a MYLR that I’ve been driving daily, but I must admit this vehicle is more fun and more luxurious. While I do think that the MY and M3 are a better value, the S is a fun highway cruiser. Now I need to consider getting Opticoat or other treatment to keep...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I’m glad that you’re happy with your delivery and Model S. I had two previous S deliveries that were embarrassingly poor. The June attempt needed a new rear bumper. After I was told it needed a new rear bumper, there was no way I was taking it. An earlier delivery was over 6 months old and had...

    I took delivery of my Model S today in Orlando, Florida. It wasn’t missing any of the trunk trim or mats. I didn’t receive any key fobs. I rejected three cars before accepting this one. I had almost given up. The finish on the paint isn’t 💯 percent The Yoke is okay, but I miss the stalks for...

    Rejected Delivery

    My last reject needed a new rear bumper. It had a visible clip too. I would have embarrassed to show this to anyone. I’m going for my fourth attempt in a couple weeks. If the S has serious flaws, I’m giving up on my Model S purchase.

    If you don’t have a fob, what do you hand to the valet? A key card?

    New Model S Plaid Ordered!

    My first Tesla was a leased X90D, and I wished that I had purchased it at lease end. I miss the unlimited supercharging. I’ve got a Model Y now, and it’s trouble-free. I do miss some of the luxury touches.

    2022 MODEL S PLAID - Cosmetic disaster

    I rejected my Model S delivery because it needed a new rear bumper. It wasn’t installed correctly. The manager still expected me to accept it and return when the parts arrived. Screw that idea!

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I would like a metal key and a fake ignition switch like G-d intended. I was kidding about the Tesla fob. I don’t think I’d use it much. My phone works fine in the Model Y 95% of the time.

    Have you de-scummed your glass yet?

    This might not help with the scum, but I use hydrogen peroxide to clean glass inside my home. It doesn’t have any odor. You can find HP in a spray bottles too, and it’s inexpensive. The HP is great for taking the film off mirrors and interior glass.

    I have a new EDD of November 16 to January 25th. I know it will change often. All I can say is that I’m glad that I don’t really need it. I’m more excited about my Rivian order because the Rivian comes with a key fob. :)

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    My account was placed on hold after refusing a June delivery so I wouldn’t get re-matched with the same vehicle. I received an email yesterday from Tesla that my order would be canceled if I didn’t take it off hold by July 17th. I took it off hold today. It will be interesting to see my...

    My sales advisor texted me today to see if I changed my mind about taking the car. She said the manager thought that I had decided to take it. As I am an indecisive person, I’m considering it. Other than the bumper, everything seemed to align well inside and out. This photo is of the rear...

    I could see it wasn’t fitted correctly. I’m not sure why it needs replacement—perhaps it has to do with the missing clip. The service man said it would have to be replaced. @jebinc I am paying cash, so I wasn’t worried about loan rates.

    I didn’t take it. A service advisor came and looked at it and said that it would need a new bumper. A manager said that it was missing one or more clips. A new painted bumper would be sent from the factory. I have no idea how long it would take. Some of the small cosmetic issues were taken...
