    How does Tesla usually roll out changes vs. announcing changes (radar)

    https://driveteslacanada.ca/model-3/tesla-confirms-removal-of-radar-from-recent-model-3-y-builds-in-switch-to-tesla-vision/ There's also a reference stating that a tweet was the announcement. Looks like the article has a typo and meant 5/12/2021. Tesla is ditching radar, will rely on cameras...

    How does Tesla usually roll out changes vs. announcing changes (radar)

    How has Tesla historically handled model changes. Do they: - Announce first then introduce or remove from the car sometime later - Or make the change to production cars first and announce it after its already in production and being distributed? In particular, it now looks like Tesla will...

    Any happy camper here with the price cut?

    I've reserved then cancelled, then ordered then had it canceled starting 10 years ago. I've pulled the trigger again. We were on the fence vs. an ID4. But the price drop is too good to pass up even with Elon's twitter fiasco. Ordered it a couple of hours after it went live, car is already made...

    Are Tesla solar roofs being installed? [in North Carolina]

    Wow BTW, I was able to get my Tesla roof installed. I’m Bay Area, not NC. But they did manage to cancel my model y order.

    2020 Model 3 losing excessive amount of battery power?

    Likely energy is going to heat the cabin. gas vehicles heat the cabin with waste heat from the engine. No such thing in an EV. 22F is very cold. Consumes huge amounts of energy to heat the cabin. You need to preheat before you unplug so you start with a warm car. Heat pump won’t work at that...

    ‘23 tax credit, will Tesla offer discounts in ‘22?

    Yes they did. I was clear I wanted delivery in January. They threatened to cancel but someone implied they’d try to extend day by day. Looks like someone finally looked at it, decided it taking too long and pulled the plug. They actually didn’t warn in the days before the cancellation. It was...

    Why so many new inventory cars with under 50 miles ?

    Demand is drying up. Production cars with no buyer go to inventory. Presumably everyone is waiting for January expecting to get $7500 tax credit. But recession fears and rising interest rates may have curbed demand at the same time production is ramping up. Canada and China are also...

    ‘23 tax credit, will Tesla offer discounts in ‘22?

    ‘23 tax credit, will Tesla offer discounts in ‘22?

    I don’t know about matrix headlights. They did want me to specifically acknowledge and accept that ultrasonic sensors had been removed from the ordered vehicle. I don’t see removal of the sensors as a good thing. Removed function expected in most cars mid priced and up.

    ‘23 tax credit, will Tesla offer discounts in ‘22?

    March order. Significantly below current price. But if full tax credit comes along it’s about the same price. Ordering right now still says delivery in December, almost immediate delivery. Quite a difference from any other time. I’ve never seen zero wait for MY order. Down from my 8 month...

    ‘23 tax credit, will Tesla offer discounts in ‘22?

    Agreed. Sadly I was in the boat of having an EDD in December that got moved up. Despite my best efforts, tesla just cancelled my order. I’m disappointed in how callous they are. I had expected they’d figure out some way to deal with the tax credit at end of year. Extra deposit. Parking fee. But...

    Tesla App and Thanksgiving screwed me (vent)

    Tesla I had the same reaction for different reason. Tesla is supposed to be so smart. Innovative. I’m paying cash. I thought they’d ask for a big deposit, non refundable even, a few thousand dollars. Or even charge to store the car for a month. But alas, it’s all procedure. The people wanted...

    Was issued a VIN, put my order on a 1 week hold, how quick after hold could I get a car?

    Varies. I think demand has dried up. No one wants to take delivery right before tax credit becomes available. Good chance you’d get it this year if you’re one of the few willing to accept delivery this year.

    Tesla App and Thanksgiving screwed me (vent)

    It’s not your fault. Demand for teslas has dropped off a cliff. Can order today and get a car in a few days. No one wants to order or accept delivery now when tax credit is a few weeks away. Tesla just cancelled my order because they refused to wait a few weeks. I think they’re desperate to...

    How to delay delivery until 2023

    I ordered March. I wanted it delayed until January. They were delaying my delivery day by day. Someone at tesla was trying to help me. But time ran out and they just cancelled my 8 month old model y order despite just having spent $70,000 on a new Tesla solar roof. Tesla and/or Elon is careless...

    Solar installation shutting down in certain markets.

    Tesla just cancelled my Model Y order. They refused to delay delivery a few weeks despite having just spent $70,000 on a new tesla solar roof and power wall. Not valuing customers.

    Solar installation shutting down in certain markets.

    Update on my solar roof install. Ordered March 1, 2022. Tesla could never give me an estimated install date. A few weeks ago, out of the blue, I get a call. How about next week? I am now the proud new owner of a tesla roof and power wall. So far it’s working great. Install went well. Took 2...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Sadly, his company is very much not executing to plan. He privately owns Twitter. It is a very public dumpster fire where at every step he looks like an arrogant idiot child unable to discern fact from fiction, completely unprepared for a non tech endeavor.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Elon has always been synonymous with tesla. It used to be an enormously good thing. The vision was very persuasive. Sounded very smart. Aspirational. People wanted the product not only because it’s a good car but because of the vision. Buying into a better future. New tech. Best experience. Ride...

    Elon & Twitter

    It’s too late for Elon to walk this back. He’s too full of himself. He’ll never walk this back. Tesla will become synonymous with extreme right wing unless he quits as ceo. I’m suddenly ashamed of my brand new tesla roof and can’t imagine accepting delivery of the Model Y I have scheduled for...

    Elon & Twitter

    Because Elon is so special no one can say anything to him. Have to appease his every wish or else. How lame. Apparently we live in a land of kings. Dictators. The rich should be the only ones with a voice. Gotcha. That explains a lot of how we’ve gotten here.

    What happened to free speech and bringing back people who have been banned? Now Elon doesn’t like it so forget everything he said before. It only applies to view he personally doesn’t like.

    MYLR Delivery Date Delayed 3+ Months...Beyond the WIndow of a New Order?

    I don’t think it’s a lie. It seems demand has disappeared. I ordered 3/1/2022 and I was given an actual date weeks ago when they wanted me to accept delivery. I declined and asked for a later date. My EDD is currently 12/1-12/31. There are even inventory MYLR available here in the Bay Area. 10...

    MYLR Delivery Date Delayed 3+ Months...Beyond the WIndow of a New Order?

    New orders even for base MY shows December. I think demand has dried up waiting for 2023 tax rebate. Who would order now if waiting a few weeks could be $7500 cheaper.

    End of quarter delivery date theory

    I called multiple times and was told the only way was to refuse delivery and request a later date. It can only be done once. The later date may be pretty soon after. I’ve already used my one try. Painfully close to January.

    MYLR Delivery Date Delayed 3+ Months...Beyond the WIndow of a New Order?

    I'm swap with you. I ordered in March. MYLR white interior, white exterior, hitch, base wheels. EDD moved all over the place, now 12/1-12/31. But I'd like to accept it in 2023 for the tax credit. I'm trying to find a way to get them to delay until January, but doesn't sound promising from what...

    End of quarter delivery date theory

    I ordered March 1st. I'd like to delay until tax credit. I do have the lower price but it's pretty close to a wash vs. ordering now and getting the tax rebate starting January. My EDD has also moved all over the place. I was able to delay it once. Now they're saying 12/1-31. I'm going to ask...

    What is public perception of owning a Tesla after Musk's tweet?

    It was up for a few hours. Enough to be retweeted thousands of times. It's been on all the major news. It helped to make the story trend on twitter. Tweets correcting the false story were buried. Presumably many people think the story is real despite police and many other references indicating...

    What is public perception of owning a Tesla after Musk's tweet?

    Serious question. I'm having a Tesla Solar roof and Powerwall installed today, as I post this, power is out during install. I have a Model Y on order supposed to arrive next month... right before tax rebate goes info effect, but thats a different story. I am shocked at Elon's tweet repeating a...

    Are Tesla solar roofs being installed? [in North Carolina]

    I ordered a Tesla solar roof (not panels) March 1, 2022. I need to get the roof replaced on my house. Insurance will not insure the house with the current roof. I thought I had plenty of time, however Tesla has at various points told me that there are no solar roof installs going on this year...

    How to delay delivery until 2023

    I wasn't offered delivery any sooner, so it looks like I would have already missed the ultrasonic sensors.... and radar has been gone for a while. Surely, if Tesla says vision will be just as good or better sometime "soon", I'm sure it will happen in short order. :)

    How to delay delivery until 2023

    I hadn't replied for a while. A Tesla rep on the phone somehow had marked the account to say on hold until end of the year. So I thought I was good to go and didn't want to rock the boat. But yesterday I received an email confirming cancellation if I don't accept delivery in 2 weeks. Argh. I...

    How to delay delivery until 2023

    My delivery date has suddenly been moved way up. Suddenly get an email our ordered car will be available in 2 days. This is late September. Is it possible to get Tesla to delay delivery until 1/2023 for the tax credit. Is there any trick? Has Tesla made an announcement regarding how they’re...

    Why can't I edit my order

    I just successfully edited my order... changed it from black to white interior. However... without notice it also changed my delivery date from 4 months from now (October 2022) to March 2023. If I had known, I wouldn't have made the change. Its now extremely unlikely I will get a Tesla. I...

    Car and Driver Model 3 Test - Not Great

    It is. You have to sit in it. Seat is uncomfortably narrow. Car is very narrow. Materials tend to be cheaper harder plastics. It looks and feels like a $12,000 Chevy Sonic.

    Model X Crash on US-101 (Mountain View, CA)

    Inconclusive. Autopilot uses the existence of cars around it to help guide its placement. Being right behind a car in the proper lane will guide autopilot. It would have a tougher time if there was no car ahead. If you were in the left most HOV lane it would be harder still, especially if there...

    Model 3 standard range postponed until Early 2019

    Very consistent with Tesla prioritizing any model that has extra cost options above the base SR range. This continues the pattern. If/when they release a performance version that will be ahead of base SR, likewise for interior upgrades etc, etc. Essentially they've clearly stated that as long...
