    How to best sell Model Y privately in Ontario

    Lookings for suggestions on how to sell my Model Y in Ontario. I've talked to some dealers but they offer $ 15 - 20k less than they will sell it for, seems like a big hit. Is Autotrader the best option? How do you weed out tire kickers / joy riders? I'd like to focus on real buyers.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    I know you can have the Alto lowered from the factory. I think it's just a different bolt position and probably something that can be done after as well.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    In the same boat. My oldest is already going through a growth spurt, happens so fast. I can see that while now both boys would fit in the front dinette, they won't get along for long. I think from a towable range standpoint and 4 person sleeping. The only viable option for a MY right now...

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Has anyone tried towing a Jayco SLX7 174BH. Looks like it's right at the edge of capacity and/or over if you load it to it's full rated capacity.

    Inspect Windows carefully on delivery

    I just picked up my car this weekend, so no idea.

    Inspect Windows carefully on delivery

    FYI - Beware of a common issue on delivery with recent windows. The very top of the driver window (top right if your facing it from the outside) had a chip. While mine was being delivered I noticed two other Model Y's being delivered at the same time that had the exact same issue. I have...

    Which has lower depreciation percentage - MY Perf or MY AWD?

    It's not supply and demand on the new side. There is no production limitation on one versus the other. Your must solid inference at this point is to look at the Model 3 which suggests my comments about the performance version are correct.

    Which has lower depreciation percentage - MY Perf or MY AWD?

    It's still too early in the lifecycle to predict with certainty, not enough data. In general higher end trims depreciate more because used buyers are generally more price sensitive. That and people will assume a Performance model is more likely to be abused.

    ChargePoint installation advice - NEMA 6-50 vs. 14-50?

    I'd suggest the 14-50, it's more popular of you're not doing hardwired. Personally I prefer 14-50 due to plug and play. But hardwired is fine and easy enough to relocate with minimal cost if necessary.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    I don't know enough about how Tesla does that math to know if that methodology can be trusted. Not to say it's incorrect, I'm just a very skeptical person. I'll trust it when I run scan my Tesla on my own.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    Only a single confirmation so far. And someone else with an even newer VIN than him that confirmed the 78. Far from a sure bet.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    That makes the NA Model Y the only variant with these lights. I doubt they'll keep them long-term they probably still have inventory. It's funny I was really excited to get this upgrade and then realized... I don't even remember the last time I turned on my high beams. Personally I'm...

    Get a Bluetooth ODB adapter from Amazon and buy Scanmytesla app. Plenty of great into in that app!

    Tale the US leased tesla to Canada

    I have no doubt they covered you. But it doesn't seem to be official. I don't see that in writing anywhere. May have just been good will. If that was case I'll purchase from the US and deal with the import!

    82kwh LR?

    Interesting a thread on Reddit with a more recent VIN but still has the old 78Kw pack.

    Tale the US leased tesla to Canada

    Yes, apparently no warranty coverage though. Source:. I tried to contact us Tesla and buy from there instead of Canada due to cheaper price.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    I think you effectively end up with an "autonomous" vehicle that follows you. Maybe to not make the regulators (and public) so afraid of it you put some kind of mock "hitch" in place and if it disconnects the "trailer/train" comes to stop just like current trailers. Actually I think we just...

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Many more reasons why this won't work. Any time you go less than 10% of the total weight of the trailer you're going to create amazing sway. Now you can try overcome this with modulating the motors on the trailer; but I think the forces that will be placed on the hinge will be too strong to...

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    That wouldn't work for a couple of reasons: They're using torque to cancel weight. When you're talking about 20,000 lb especially going over bumps the amount of torque required to cancel the weight would be logarithmic. More importantly with multi-axle you'll move the moment to the rearmost...

    Ordered 3/25 and build is set for mid April

    Your car was likely born yesterday. The ETA is basically the delivery/inspection time between the plant and your pickup location.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Those numbers are always deceiving. You can almost never safely tow to a vehicles maximum capacity, because maximum capacity assumes 10% weight transfer from the trailer. In other words a 14k trailer transfers 1400lbs to the tow vehicle, and the tow vehicle needs to handle that much payload...

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Lippert is working on a powered chassis with Magna. The Model Y doesn't have the payload to handle such a monster. I doubt the Cybertruck will have the payload capacity, hopefully it will.

    ID.4 Canadian pricing announced, undercuts MY LR AWD by $20k CAD :(

    I'd take proper Winter tires + RWD over AWD + All Seasons any day. In Ontario, Winter tires are not mandatory. It's amazing to see how many AWD vehicles you see in a ditch, or stuck.

    2 week old 2021 Model Y - SHUT DOWN while driving

    This is a concerning situation. You should report this incident to ensure a thorough investigation is done. https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/ While I trust Tesla will get to the bottom of the issue, the regulators are there to ensure everyone's safety. If everyone reports...

    New Matrix projector LED vs "old" reflector LED headlights comparison on US cars

    Well if we're going to be fair to the journalist, could have heard it straight from Elon Musk. Didn't mean Tesla is actually going to follow through.

    82kwh LR?

    Has anyone else seen this on a recent Model Y delivery?

    Production Halt on Model Y?

    Not saying it's correct either. But without the casting how exactly, or any single part really. How are you going to finish building the car. Your one piece short of Legoland!

    Current Delivery Times

    No they've been fairly steady on ETA/Delivery for at least the last 5 months I've been following this forum. This is fairly unprecedented in terms of recent history.

    Current Delivery Times

    Not sure what technology has to do with it. Everyone is facing this. The Suez cannel was blocked and created a worldwide disruption in supplies. Things trickle down as each vendor relies on a chain of upstream vendors. If vendors can't give Tesla accurate timelines, then that...

    ID.4 Canadian pricing announced, undercuts MY LR AWD by $20k CAD :(

    I've seen 350kW Chargers in Quebec. Just like the many 75kW Tesla Chargers you'll need to wait for the CCS ones to be upgraded to 350.

    He can go buy a Ford or a VW... I'm being quoted Jan 2022, and "no idea but probably not until Spring 2022". :D

    New Matrix projector LED vs "old" reflector LED headlights comparison on US cars

    Sprayer nozzles have been around for several decades. They're a fairly dependable "system", failure is about as common as a wart growing on a rock. Canadian regulations for example do not require sprayer nozzles; yet can utilize the advantages of LED Matrix + cornering. It's your country...

    ID.4 Canadian pricing announced, undercuts MY LR AWD by $20k CAD :(

    It also has something that any longer term cold weather EV owner appreciates. A heated front window, so you can kill the heat in the winter and still see out the window!

    New Matrix projector LED vs "old" reflector LED headlights comparison on US cars

    This is based on the Model 3 German regulatory filings. I'm making the leap that the lights are the same in the MY. As for why they're not activated? My guess is because the full functionality is either not ready, or not passed regulatory approval, or some other reason. I don't see them...

    Not yet, but they do have the hardware to become adaptive.

    New Matrix projector LED vs "old" reflector LED headlights comparison on US cars

    I think people on the sidelines should consider this: Do they live in a rural area with many winding roads? That is effectively the scenario where the new Matrix lights will provide a significant upgrade. If 99% of your time is in an Urban/Suburban setting with plenty of artificial light...

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    I would guess its for media / influencers like TeslaBjorn to start doing evaluations before launch.

    Model Y Long Range Rear Wheel Drive (LR RWD)

    Also just as important is efficiency and charge curves. If you use 20% more electricity and it charges slower the charge time basically doubles over a Model Y one a road trip over 600 miles.

    Personal EV station at Condo

    One of the things that can be done is to get other owners on side. While most other owners may not care about your particular plight, everyone in the condo is concerned about resale value. I'm sure someone good at this has written up a good flyer you can leave in a common area discussing the...

    Model Y with new headlights

    We had two cars, I sold mine last September and haven't needed a second since. In fact, we rarely drive the one remaining car. I can't really come up with a proper reason to rush my purchase. So I'll wait for the lights, and if someone mentioned the new cells are around the corner - you...
