    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    I went to the charger to check it out tonight. It still wasn't in the car maps at 8pm. But it did indeed charge. (Well, I only plugged in for 30-60 sec to see it start charging.)

    The meter was rotating through displays:

    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    What are the steps between getting a meter and opening to customers? I'm guessing the meter means everything is all set from the Eversourse side and it's all in Tesla's court?

    How to make software change requests?

    Those are all good suggestions. The font sizes for different controls should be adjustable. We all have different eye sight limitations. And it should be easier to see at a glance while we're driving.

    Thanks for explaining some possibilities. We definitely need more CCS chargers for the non-tesla drivers.

    this is the bottom of the pole. Is the second conduit for for current setup? Future expansion? For CCS chargers (the northbound rest area in Lexington recently had two Chargepoint chargers installed)?

    Yup. Still no meter. I did grab a clearer photo of the pole (in daylight):

    Looks like we have the wires on the pole hooked up!! No meter yet.

    Is there a way to get notified of new Super Chargers opening?

    Supercharge.info only allows you to filter by region (global region) and country. It's too bad you can't filter by state.

    Is there a way to get notified of new Super Chargers opening?

    No official way to register for notification. But there's the wonderful supercharge.info (community-driven feed of supercharger updates). It also has links to the Tesla Motor Club forum entry for each SC station, link to google maps, and link to the Tesla (if there's a marker on Tesla's map)...

    I swung by to check just now. The wires on the telephone pole are still not hooked up.

    IRS definitions of what's a car vs SUV by manufacturer for $55k vs $80k price limit

    The IRS has posted a page listing cars that qualify based on final assembly and what the MSRP price cap is for each car based on if it's a car or SUV. 5 seat Model Y is a car and subject to $55k limit. 7 seat Model Y is an SUV and is subject to a $80k limit.

    What features do you wish the Model Y came with (Dec 2022/Jan 2023) Wishlist

    That info was from an EU site, so it may or may not be on Hyundai cars sold in the US.

    What features do you wish the Model Y came with (Dec 2022/Jan 2023) Wishlist

    I googled it. It's Hyundai Safe Exit Assist. Safe Exit Assist: how does it work?

    And make sure you have the setting set to allow the Tesla app to run in the background.

    What features do you wish the Model Y came with (Dec 2022/Jan 2023) Wishlist

    Adding remote start with key fob. When you're in an area without good cell coverage or wifi (my driveway in metro Boston), being able to start (and stop) preconditioning with the key fob would be really critical (with winter having arrived with a vengeance).

    What features do you wish the Model Y came with (Dec 2022/Jan 2023) Wishlist

    Adding one more. But in the app and website, not the car. I want to be able to see the charging cost by hour of day and current occupancy of each SC in the app and on the website. As far as I know, it's only available on the in-car screen. Am I missing it somewhere?

    What features do you wish the Model Y came with (Dec 2022/Jan 2023) Wishlist

    Love my Model Y, but there's always room for improvement...What features would you like to see Tesla make for Model Y or Model 3? Let's classify this as either A) software updates or B) hardware upgrades (for new cars and possibly retrofitting to existing cars). I'll start... A) Software...

    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    Just swung by on my way home. I don't remember what the pole looked like before. But there's a metal conduit coming from the ground with some wires coming out. But they're not connected to anything overhead.

    Michelin X-Ice Snow Tire Setup and Headaches (with Costco)

    This is timely for me. I bought some 18" wheels from Tsportline (to downsize from 19" stock wheels) and some crossclimate2 tires from Costco. Costco wouldn't install them because they were lower load rating (103) than stock Gemini wheels/tires my car came with (104), despite the fact that the...

    Weekly update. Still no transformer as of 12/3.

    No fence, but also no transformer or meter.

    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    I drove past the station on the highway today (11/26) and it looked like the chain link fencing was gone. I was already past the exit or I would have stopped to check it out.

    Thanks! What is the role of the other three boxes (two of one type, and one of the other)?

    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    Just checked. The trench is filled in. There are three white boxes and an empty concrete platform.

    Supercharger - Burlington, MA

    I came here to comment that the lights went out at 11:30pm on Saturday, which really felt unsafe. And looking at the recent comments, and this was already the most recent topic of discussion! Is there anyway to submit feedback to Tesla in the app about charging station issues (Tesla newbie here).

    Tesla Watch App

    FYI, I’ve had my MYLR for almost two months. In that time I’ve had 3 or 4 times when the car stopped talking to Tesla servers (I waited 4-12 hours and it was only fixed by resetting the car — holding the two steering wheel buttons down). The main problem I noticed was the official Tesla app not...

    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    @kayak1 I drove by on I-95 today but didn't pull into the rest area to loo closely. It looked like it was still fenced off. I'd categorize it as construction still in progress. The chargers are in place, but who knows about the electrical wiring or the connection to the grid. 🤷‍♂️

    advice on tire sizing for going with 18" winter tires?

    Thanks @jcanoe. Does that mean that a load rating of 101V (1819 lbs) meets the requirements regardless of tire/wheel size? Looking at the Cross Climate 245/55R18 103V, they have a load rating of 1929 lbs. That's more than Tesla's rating on their 20" or 21" wheels/tires, but less than on...

    What website are you using for the green table?

    The trench today. Mostly the same, but there is conduit in there.

    advice on tire sizing for going with 18" winter tires?

    New MYLR driver here. I'm looking at getting snow all weather tires (Cross Climate 2 in particular) and going down from stock 19" (255/45-19) to 18" to cope with potholed New England roads. How do you decide between (these seem to be the Cross Climate sizes that are most appropriate)...

    Supercharger - North Conway, NH

    It still lets you charge when the car and app is not showing charger status for a location? I didn’t want to experiment (when driving to the station would have wasted valuable charge if the units were disabled). And the next SC was 1+ hours away.

    Supercharger - North Conway, NH

    Supercharger - North Conway, NH

    I was up in North Conway this weekend. I charged Saturday 11pm and Monday 11am and it worked great! However, Saturday all day, the Tesla app was showing zero stalls available. I was checking roughly 8am-10pm. Any idea what was going on? Bring the only Supercharger around, it's pretty critical.

    rear interior emergency door pull (early Aug 2022 Fremont built cars)?

    I was reading through the manual (as a new MY owner), and I noticed this comment about the emergency release for interior in the back seats starting with early August 2022 built cars from Fremont. I don't think I have this, but how would I know? I assume it would look just like the front...

    Voice command frustration

    A week into owning my MY...Tesla voice command is very good at having commands available to control car features (wipers, heated seats, rear lift gate, etc). But I'm shocked at how bad Tesla is at voice commands for music/audio. My 2016 RAV4 had voice commands for radio that worked (locally...
