    Sentry not working

    I have a 2020 M3 delivered in Nov 2019. (W/radar). Lately only getting sentry alerts on front camera. Today someone parked on my drivers side leaving only 8” for me to open my door. No sentry capture.

    Backup camera went black

    Had the issue on the 9th. Resolved next day and hasn’t returned. Still wondering If it’s rain related.

    Backup camera went black

    Had this issue today. Was sitting in rain. Rebooted, shifted D and R a few times. Tried on screen activation and still black with guide lines. Will try tomorrow before contacting service.

    Pedestrian Warning Sound

    When I first head about this and saw the easy disconnect YouTube vids I thought I’d do this. Now after receiving the car I find it not objectionable from inside the car. I appreciate the backup sound most as people in parking lots are oblivious to cars moving. I’m not sure why the feds choose...

    Self parking in a very tight garage - doable?

    It’s my understanding that most carrier landings are done by computer now. Allows the plane and ships systems to link and dampen out wave action. But then those guys have better budgets.

    Self parking in a very tight garage - doable?

    I don’t have FSD but, I do have a tiny garage. There is less than 6” clearance as I pass the door walls if my mirrors are out. The proximity sensors chime to stop a couple of times. I can see everything so I continue and park. I would guess self park would just stop. Fortunately for me once...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.2 - FSD AutoSteer Stop Sign Warning and Adjacent Lane Speeds

    Same here. Got car on 11/20. M3 SR+ running 2019.31.104. Was ready to escalate but got 2019.40.2 late to tonight. Looking forward to seeing the changes. Looks like major rollout to new deliveries.

    Limited mile battery warranty

    So with an SR+ which gets a realistic 200 mi range in many real world situations (hills, wind, speed, temp, heaters) you’d only be utilizing 60 miles of range. I don’t think that will be typical.

    Guesses on 2020 Pricing?

    Depends on timing of Model Y. If it can be early like May they may just let the 3 sunset slowly like the S and X. The Model Y and International Model 3 are likely more profitable.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Better looking than I remembered. I’m getting mine tomorrow. Same spec. It’s been 4 months since my short test drive experience.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Happened to check in on my Tesla account today and found that my scheduled delivery had changed from this Thursday to this Saturday. That's OK but to be sure I checked in with my Operations Adviser. Interestingly he was able track the exact location of the truck carrying my car. It's 100...

    Tesla hate

    I’m picking up my first Tesla this week. This issue worries me a lot. Hoping EVs from more manufacturers solves the problem. I fear that transition is 1-2 years away.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I don’t know if I’m throwing shade on this forum topic or sunshine. I ordered on 9/28 in Portland. Was told a week ago that I’d receive my car sometime in December. Now I’m supposed to pick it up this Thursday. Things can change very fast. This is 650 miles from Fremont so maybe California is...

    Initiative 976

    I hate to wade into political conversations on this forum but feel compelled to mention as we reduce income taxes (remember Washington State has no income tax including for the two richest men in the world) fees must be raised to compensate.

    How not to wash a Tesla :)

    This is why God makes children puppies cute.

    Mach-E: Ford Mustang Inspired EV

    You do have to wonder if they really have a handle on battery management yet. Even took Tesla a while to get it optimized. And then there is the current lack of level 3 chargers for non Tesla EVs.

    Mach-E: Ford Mustang Inspired EV

    I'm happy to seem them join the revolution with what looks like a "competitive" offer. First from a non Tesla US manufacturer. Nice to see them use the "E" term since they threatened to sue Tesla over it. Also hoping more EVs from more manufacturers on the road reduces the vandalism and...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    I suppose my frustration is with several Supercharger sites scheduled for completion in 2019 in the Northwest that have never been started.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Great news I got my VIN and delivery date set today. The path to get here was long, painful and odd. Ordered SR+ Wht/Blk no FSD on 9/28. First contact was 11/13 when I was notified that my car would go into production in November and be delivered in December. I did let them now that such...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    Tesla seems more interested in more production facilities that more Superchargers. Sometimes they forget what made them superior.

    When is Tesla gonna start producing for U.S?

    I blame everyone east of the Rockies for the delay in my delivery.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Was notified email today by the Operations Adviser in Portland that my SR+ White/Black will not be coming in November. I ordered on 9/28. With production of my car sometime in December they said It is "expected to arrive before January".

    When is Tesla gonna start producing for U.S?

    Got an email from the Operations Adviser in Portland today saying my car would be delivered sometime in December and they "expect before January". I ordered SR+ White/Black on 9/28. I had to unload a bit on him on how disrespectful it is to keep their customers in the dark for so, so long...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I agree. It's hard to imaging a group orientation being advanced enough for someone who's watched many great YouTube vids.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I feel your pain. Really. I’m near Portland OR. Ordered an inventory car 9/15 but fell thru. Ordered an SR+ on 9/28. Can’t get any data out of them about a delivery date. Was asked to sign up for group orientation starting 11/20. So I assume they know it won’t arrive before then.

    Charging everyday?

    Question - Somewhat on topic. Since I’m still waiting for my SR+ (in week 6 now) I can’t figure out the following. I know you can set a departure time for your charging to finish so as not to hold a high soc for long. Can this setting be made “semi permanent “ so I can plug in ever night and not...

    Charging everyday?

    I’d like to park an ev over an inductive charger every night and never think about what’s best for some part inside the car or if I’ve got enough range if my drive plan changes. Now that’s what I mean about not fussing.
  28. RainyDaze

    Charging everyday?

    I appreciate reading all this information on battery charging, battery care and battery management systems. Tesla owners are early adopters and most like understanding the tech. However EVs will never go mainstream if owners are expected to fuss this much over battery care. This is especially...

    Tesla improves Model 3's Interior Cabin Noise

    This improvement would certainly make the wait from September worthwhile. My Portland test drive on concrete roads beat to death with studded tires was loud.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I ordered SR+ White/Black in late September. The Portland SC notified me to sign up for a group orientation (not needed) since they are not doing individual ones anymore. The start state for these orientations is 10/20. So, I don't expect any deliveries here until after that.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I ordered on 9/28. No VIN yet. But, got my first ever email from Tesla stating that while they are waiting for my car to go into production I should sign up for a group orientation. Apparently the Portland SC is no longer going to do personal orientations on delivery day.

    Should I Just Wait 'Til Q1 2020 to Order?

    Here are my thoughts as I've gone through the same thought process. I don't think SR or SR+ prices will go lower. Current thinking is that they are not making much if any money on them. However as competitors ramp up their range I suspect we could see a small range boost to improve their...

    Want to Buy : Model 3 LR Pearl White

    I never understood the high used prices when new ones were shipping in 2 weeks. Somehow it seems more reasonable at 10 weeks. LR RWD is even more rare.

    Q4 Delivery timeline.

    What are the odds of waiting 10 weeks for an early December delivery and then Tesla runs special incentives the last two weeks?

    Supercharger - Auburn, WA

    You’re right. It’s the Tacoma one I’m waiting for. It’s also supposed to be done this year.

    Supercharger - Auburn, WA

    That's very good to hear. Still waiting for SR+ delivery. Wife wants to take first trip from Vancouver, WA to Bainbridge/Kingston area. It's kind of a Supercharger dead zone between Centralia to Sequim.

    Apparently too good to be true...demo car

    I heard about that one and passed. It was just becoming to pricey for my retirement budget. I am happy with the SR+ price with state and federal incentives. I actually live in WA just outside of Portland. The WA sales taxes are pretty outrageous. Most of the time the range is plenty. We...

    Apparently too good to be true...demo car

    Well, I still don't have one. Ordered on 9/27. Of course order said within two weeks. No VIN, no projected delivery date yet.

    Apparently too good to be true...demo car

    Ah, that was my car ordered in mid Sept. Made a "deal" with sales and put down my deposit. Car was shipped from Seattle to Portland. Then I was told that "sales management" had cancelled the order since the demo price put it at exactly the price that qualified for WA incentive. Said it...

    No VINs in October?

    New here today. Ordered white on black SR+ on Sept 27. No VIN. Sales person says has no idea when it will come in. Checked with him today on config changes. Says there will be no changes to my order. But, my order still says within 2 weeks. Problem #1 is customer and sales team...
