    Tesla only vehicle

    Keep in mind that people are more likely to post complaints and criticism than compliments and praises. So for all of the negative issues you read, there are just as many people with a problem-free Tesla. If you, unfortunately, receive one with issues then it really depends on your local service...

    LR 0-60 over 5 seconds

    RIght I know about Joe Mode but it wasn't necessary on my Model 3 why would it be necessary now? The battery SOC was between 80% - 90%. I am going to take it to the track and see what it does "officially".

    LR 0-60 over 5 seconds

    I have the latest "butt dyno" and have been told it's one of the best.

    LR 0-60 over 5 seconds

    Bought a demo 2021 Model Y LR. The car performance "feels" lacking in acceleration when compared to my previous 2019 Model 3 Standard Range Plus. Using a stopwatch and camera on a flat road with only me (185 lbs) I am getting over 5 second 0-60 from a stop. Also, the green light chime is present...

    Model Y Fail

    I think the problem didn't arise until they supercharged it.

    Model Y Fail

    It was $1 a mile ($2100) total, but I was able to get store credit on top of it and the tow hitch installation waved because my ordered Model Y had a tow hitch which the demo did not. That's a roughly $900 value on top of the $2100.

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    I was sold on the Model Y SR 7 seat configuration until mine arrived with a bad main battery. Options aside the long-range is a better deal based on cost per mile. The Model Y Standard range at the time it was removed was $38,990 with a range of 244 miles which equals $159.79 per mile. The Long...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    I drove a loaner performance Model Y in blue. I agree you should stick with it my wife and I both loved that color.

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    Yes, it is a 7 seater. I can confirm all 4 kids and their car seats (1 infant & 3 forward facing) fit. It was one that they had at my local showroom. If you can find a demo at a discount it's worth it. I ended up paying about $168 per mile of range on the demo LR vs $186 per mile of range on...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    I ended up purchasing a demo LR at a discount. I am very glad I did too. The acceleration in the LR feels similar to my Model 3 SR+ I sold. I wouldn't have been happy with the acceleration of the Model Y SR.

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    No I was the one who ordered this vehicle. Literally watched the show room and the day the truck arrived I scheduled pickup. The battery failed on the supercharger and was rendered unchargeable thus needing a replacement. It did not sit on the lot for more than a few hours since I needed a...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    When the "undelivered" that Model Y from me, it was automatically put back into the system for purchase. Since it was the end of the day, I believe they forgot to flag it for its issues.

    Model Y Fail

    I ended up buying a demo LR 7 seater at a discount. I was on the fence between the two and now that I have it I am glad I did. Not because of the range but because of the performance. I had a Model 3 SR+ prior to this and the Model Y LR feels similar in acceleration. The Model Y SR acceleration...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    I doubt they are delayed until April considering the one I was supposed to take delivery on was a March 2021 build. That would imply they are in production. Also, I worry that given the short time it was available and now that it's discontinued it won't see many software efficiency improvements...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    I have a Model X with a white interior. I also have 4 kids 5 and under. It cleans up very nicely and it's beautiful.

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    No there are no other 7 seater model Y's as of right now. Unless someone doesn't follow through with one then I can't get another one. So basically *sugar* out of luck. They are working with me on a demo LR. They handled the situation excellently. I am suffering with a loaner performance Model Y now ;)

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    Pretty good I am not a fan of the new center console. It looks cheap for some reason. I wish they would have kept it the same but with a matte finish instead of glossy. Other than that and the excessive error messages on the screen it seemed fine. It's a March build by the way.

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    That is the one It's even on the google sheets document. I was super bummed I ordered it 01/10/21 and sold my Model 3 last Sunday. Went to take delivery and they said it needed an entire battery pack replacement. They weren't sure when they could get a new battery and basically advised me...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    Damn you found an SR with 7 seats in St. Louis? I literally just went to take delivery of a 7 seat SR in St. Louis yesterday and couldn't because it required an entire pack replacement and possibly other issues. When did you buy this and care to share the last 6 digits of the VIN?

    Model Y Fail

    Yes, they looked. What is odd to me is that they didn't suggest just having it fixed. It was as if it couldn't be fixed. I took it as getting a battery pack would be difficult or that they aren't readily available (My wife and I were also worried that this might be a precursor to a problematic...

    Model Y Fail

    No I haven’t the sales manager “undelivered” it. It’s not that the young adult In me doesn’t want the long range, because I definitely do and can technically afford it. But the responsible “dad” in me knows we don’t “need” the long range. I actually purchased the long range demo today when it...

    Model Y Fail

    Went to take delivery of my Model Y SR 7 Seater. After waiting for them to bring it out I was informed that the car won't charge and is in need of a complete battery replacement. My local delivery center handled this with empathy and we could tell they felt bad. They don't know when a new pack...

    Should I Get a Tesla?

    Off topic but I wonder how long it will take for "step on the gas" to change to "step on the accelerator" or "step on the watts". Probably a long time considering my step mother who has lived in a city for 20 years still says "I'm running into to town for (insert item)".

    Standard Range 7 seat configuration

    Thanks sounds like I ordered the exact same specification :). Maybe that means mine will show a VIN soon and delivery. I'm not in a huge rush but when I ordered I figured I would have it by the end of the first quarter.

    Should I Get a Tesla?

    Short answer: Yes Long Answer: Have reasonable expectations. Tesla's contain bleeding edge software and technology. With that comes software and hardware glitches and premature failures. I have had my 2019 Model 3 in the shop a couple times. Fortunately I live in an area with a fantastic...

    Thanks that's reassuring I wonder if anyone in the US has received one.

    Standard Range 7 seat configuration

    First, I am well aware of the range on a standard range Tesla. I own a Model 3 SR+ and it's plenty of range for my daily commute and beyond. However with the addition of our 4th child (7 months, 3 year old twins, 5 year old) the Model 3 no longer works. We have a 100D Model X that has plenty of...

    Model Y SR gone from options and LR dropped 1K?

    The last thing I read said a tax credit of $2500 if the vehicle is valued under $25,000.

    Model Y SR gone from options and LR dropped 1K?

    To confirm I found out my existing order of Model Y SR+ will be fulfilled. Since we also have a long range Model X I see no reason to spend an additional $9k for 80 miles of range. Also in my state property taxes are less for the standard range model along with sales tax. I am hoping the $7K if...
