    Model 3 - Left Windshield Wiper Fails to Clean Window

    Very hard to get any significant amount of fluid to come out. Especially all the way to the left. It seems to run out before it gets there. Also very little coverage towards the bottom. Even worse while the car is moving. Yes I understand the physics involved and no I've never had a similar...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    I have near identical results. Delivered same week. 297 mi extrapolated range. 3300 odometer. I have no garage and NJ weather though.

    Supercharging Bonus or Error?

    They did a promotion in September that offered 2yrs free to try to boost their quarterly results. At the time they told me they were only giving it to people who asked for it but maybe they just gave it to all.

    Possible to add Spotify Playist to car's favorite list?

    The bigger issue for me is that nothing is alphabetical! Can't find anything.

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    I think TeslaFi would show degradation as understood by the BMS. Certainly the BMS can be wrong but it's the only window into battery health we have. All Teslafi is doing is extrapolating the BMS reported range to an equivalent for 100% charge. This is exactly what most people would be doing...

    What kind of changes or improvements do you hope...

    Belated Festivus greetings. Physical wiper controls. Blind spot indicator on side mirrors Noise reduction Better voice media controls. Even with the new update it is nowhere near as good as my 2012 focus and far far worse than Google. Fast wireless phone charging Better Spotify streaming...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.36.2.1 - new HOLD mode and other features

    Same here. And it always reaches a stop when I have the back side on the street which is a really awkward stance to get it moving again

    V10 - Increased Vampire Drain

    Thanks. Interesting. I would have thought you'd miss too much drive and charge data with such an aggressive sleep setting.

    V10 - Increased Vampire Drain

    How do you get it to sleep in 13 mins? Nighttime sleep mode?

    Cut throat safety belt

    This does seem to be fairly unique to model 3. I've driven plenty of cars and this is the only one I've had an issue with

    Need help deciding between Performance and Long Range Model 3?

    I have an AWD LR and it is plenty fun. If I floor it, by the time I regain my composure and check my speed, it's already time to let up. That's not too say p won't be more fun You've clearly never been to NJ.

    Disappointed with Jeda

    Mine finally came but the wireless pad doesn't seem aligned right for my phone (pixel 3 no case). It works fine if I put the phone upside down. If I put it right side up it doesn't recognize. But if I carefully place it a bit higher on the mat and then let it slide down, it works. Not sure how...

    Free 2 Years Supercharge?

    The person that handled the actual handoff of the car and final paperwork (at a Tesla store). The sales guy was out of the picture by the time. The 2yr thing was coming out maybe a day before I got the car, so I just asked while picking it up. He said they were adding it only for people that...

    Free 2 Years Supercharge?

    FWIW, I took delivery on the first or second day of the deal. Asked the delivery guy to add the free supercharging. It now shows on my account. Not sure when it started because I was checking the wrong place til now (loot box)

    How does previous car experience match up with Model 3 experience

    Vastly better than my 17 year old focus :)

    How does Tesla charge all of these cars?

    You'd need 65 chargers running at 50kw to charge 1000 75 kwh batteries per day. That's "only" 3.1 Mw.

    V10 for non FSD

    Is that how it works? Older cars get preference?

    Did you have to convince your significant other?

    I waited till she couldn't escape sitting in the passenger seat of our Focus for a 1200 mile round trip. She say through my very lengthy sales pitch. And then for the rest of the drive I pointed out things that would be better if we had a Tesla. AP would have been great in this traffic. Etc...

    Geico insurance increase

    This is what I see from Geico to quote replacing my Model 3 LR/AWD with a BMW 330xi AWD. Car prices are pretty comparable.

    Spotify and Hulu included in 2019.32.10

    they seem to already be moving people from 32.10.x to 32.11 (just based on how teslafi stats are moving). So it might have had a bit of a pause in the rollout.

    Is this where we tell him to drink it?

    Do Model 3 owners simple not know how to park?

    I managed to scrape my rims on the first weekend. I think I had just gotten done lecturing my kid about not repeating the curse words in the song on the radio. I then proceeded to scratch the rim and had some more explaining about adult words to do :rolleyes:

    Picking up new car- how many miles? What to look for?

    FWIW, we saw 50 on some of the paperwork too. Car had like 10 miles on it at delivery. One thing I didn't know was that the car doesn't come with the 14-50 plug any more

    How do i keep the stereo on if I get in the back seat while supercharging?

    Turn on Romance Mode. It'll get the idea.

    EV's being considered "Green"

    Do real renewable suppliers exist? At least in NJ all I can find is ones that offset with credits.
