    How are referral code miles calculated?

    Thanks! I am doing a 1000+ mile road trip next week, so that should take care of my first set expiring on 7/22. I just wonder if at that point the remaining miles will revert back to 6 months after my friend got his (9/14/21) or stay at 1/22/22...

    How are referral code miles calculated?

    Speaking of free supercharger miles, something weird happened to mine. I received my car on 1/22/21 and they came up right away showing they would expire on 7/22. Then a friend used my link and received the car on 3/14. My 1000 miles were added, cumulative to 2000, but now they show expiring on...

    Passenger lumbar support missing from new MY

    My girlfriend set up the lumbar support to her liking in January when I got the car, and hasn’t touched it since then. I’m assuming that in Tesla’s data, it would show that it’s only been used once in almost 5 months. When it’s actually been appreciated for all that time. I don’t understand the...

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Passenger lumbar support missing from new MY

    Unfortunately there are too many people engrained in the Tesla/Elon cult, along with the $TSLA aspect of it. Bringing up lower weight because the lumbar control is gone, leading to better handling is flat-out ridiculous, hilarious, and sad, all at once.

    Charging adapters for travel?

    Not sure what the situation is in Texas, but I don’t really see myself buying anything. Between supercharger and Volta, Blink etc + hotel chargers that are usually J1772, I don’t think I’ll really need anything for my road trips along the West Coast...

    Passenger lumbar support missing from new MY

    It’s always harder to take something away than if it was never there in the first place. This is just an example of under-delivering, not the first one, not the last one. Car manufacturers have been adding features to their cars at no extra costs forever. By your logic, a $20k car shouldn’t have...

    Curbed Rim Questions

    The sharpie got me through a few washes, but yes, the rust-oleum should be more permanent. I only did it a few weeks ago, but that’s the goal. There are a few other options of matte black paint that seem like they’d match too on Amazon. It worked for me and was the cheapest option, but if you’re...

    Curbed Rim Questions

    I honestly wouldn’t bother. Wait until you’ve curbed it to the point you can’t take it anymore, it’s going to happen again... until then, I would use sharpie or rust-oleum matte black. That’s what I did. I don’t even think about it anymore...

    Turn Signal Light Fault - Service Is Required To Restore Functionality

    Same here, came up for a few seconds a few days ago, never came back. I think it was a couple of days after installing .18. I figured it was just a bug.

    EAP Coming Back

    Navigate on Autopilot, Auto lane change, autopark and summon are all in EAP (or were, last time it was available). I wouldn't use summon and I heard autopark was awful. So I would definitely be interested in "a la carte" option picking, to get auto lane change and possibly NOA. But I doubt that...

    EAP Coming Back

    Or just turn on turn signal. Like everything with these cars, you can do it all yourself, it’s just a convenience thing. Auto lane change isn’t worth $4k, but that’s not all that EAP is though. There are 4 things in EAP. I might pay $1k for auto lane change, I’d have to ponder.

    EAP Coming Back

    $300/month for FSD makes the most sense. It would take less than 3 years to reach the $10k. If they really increase to $14k, then I’m not sure, $450/month would make absolutely no sense. That’s a full car payment. I am really interested in seeing what the subscription offer looks like though...

    Possible to turn off passenger face vents?

    Love my model Y but...

    Yeah, I understand the safety side of it. But I would think that it would be easily fixable by software update, allowing the car to open the trunk on the screen while the speed is <1mph for example. After all, if you open the trunk in Park and then switch to Drive, it still lets you drive, it...

    Love my model Y but...

    Right. It wasn’t my question though. Never had to put my car in park when triple “parked” in the pickup area at the airport, to open the trunk. Especially with the easy entry etc, it makes it inconvenient to have to put it in park.

    Love my model Y but...

    I’m either a complete idiot and missing something super obvious or I found something basic missing. Either way I did not want to create a new thread for this. When picking up someone at the airport, I realized that the screen doesn’t give you the option of opening the trunk while still in Drive...

    Model Y full charge range

    Would a January build have 316 or 326 miles in theory? Changed my display to miles for the first time since my second day of ownership, at 50% it gave me 158 miles. So theoretically 316 at 100%. 2700 miles. 55 degrees outside. As pointed out by several people, I don't think that this number...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    Can’t speak for the beginning of your post, as I’ve never used the BMW system and had 0 episodes of phantom braking so far in 2500 miles (I’d say of those 2500 miles, at least 750-1000 are using AP on the freeway during my commute or on short road trips), but I would absolutely love it if Tesla...

    Love my model Y but...

    There are a lot of good points here. Just because Teslas are overall pretty amazing cars doesn’t mean that they aren’t lacking in some ways. The most baffling one for me was the grab handles. I guess it’s on me for not noticing when going on the test drive, but I still don’t understand why...

    New Driver - Student Driver

    First thing I'm thinking is that learning with a regenerative braking car could be tricky, not to say dangerous. If that's the only way your kid learns how to drive, how will they react when they rent a car and forget to hit the break and rear end someone? In 20 years, it might be a different...

    Model Y 2021 LR Range question

    If you’re asking if theoretically, going from 100% to 0%, you can go 200 miles at that speed, I’d say yes, most likely in most conditions, unless you are in well below freezing temperatures. In the more realistic scenario where you start with 90-95% and want to get to your destination with...

    Advice needed: Interior door trim damaged/melted after window tint job

    Welp, no surprise, but they completely denied it was their fault. They said they only use the heat gun on the outside and it couldn’t have been them... I asked the guy who worked on that side, he said he did, when I asked him if he noticed that it was damaged when he was working on that side...

    Advice needed: Interior door trim damaged/melted after window tint job

    Thanks guys. Yes, of all the bad reviews and nightmares from window tints I've read here and other places, this was never even on my radar. I am going to go early this afternoon and see what they say. My hope is that at least they admit fault and work with me on fixing it, whatever that means...

    Advice needed: Interior door trim damaged/melted after window tint job

    Alright, I researched this forum but could not find a similar issue. I went to get my front windows tinted on Thursday afternoon at a shop recommended by a friend (Alameda Tint N Sound in Alameda, CA). The process was alright, although it took them much longer than they said it would (my problem...

    More Y Competition

    I don’t like the way it looks on the outside, kind of like an off-brand e-tron. But I like the tech shown in the video. Competition is usually good for customers, so I hope that it keeps coming, whether I stay with Tesla in the future or not.

    How many Y do you spot in a day?

    That’s funny, I live in Oakland/Berkeley (right at the border), and I see a ton of Ys. Model 3 is still by far the most Teslas I see (probably 60%), but the Y has already caught up to the S I would say. The X is last. I’ve see 1 Mach-E and 1 Polestar 2 so far. Nice looking cars.

    Reverse Parking Issues

    Try more Full FSD = 300 a month, Summon = 50 a month etc... Otherwise there would be no incentive for people to get the 10k package upfront if it takes 15 years to get to that total with subscriptions. But I like the concept of breaking it down. I doubt that’s how it’s going to shake out though...

    Cost of 50 amp circuit and Nema 14-50 Plug installation in SFBay area (Oakland)?

    I’m interested to hear the results of what you went with here. I’m in Oakland too and will probably need to shop around for that service at some point (currently have free charging at work and can charge at 120 if needed, so I’m in no rush).

    Reverse Parking Issues

    The MY is much wider than my old car, so I just assumed that that’s why I had so much difficulty with it. 3 months in and I’m finally more comfortable parking in most positions. But I’m not sure that I park very straight when backing in either, or at least not on the first try...

    Possible to turn off passenger face vents?

    My girlfriend controls the sound levels, sound source and fan speed and destination all from the front passenger seat, and has never complained once. The voice control activation was also on the steering wheel in my previous car. It's the whole point of voice command: The driver shouldn't be...

    2nd Thoughts On Color

    I went with black/black/black (induction). I don't regret it at all. I think it looks great in either color. Blue is probably my least favorite though. The more I see the white one, the more I like it, especially with black rims. Only issue I had with white is that everyone seems to have white...

    Model Y full charge range

    And that number that ICE cars show is based on the last 30-50 miles driven. You keep making my point lol. If I never drive more efficiently than 260kw/mi, why would I care what the EPA rated range with 240kw/mi is? It doesn't make much sense. But I guess the different preferences are why Tesla...

    Model Y full charge range

    If you read my post in its entirety, you'll see that I say that they should show the energy app readily accessible, for actual realistic range. What is the point of doing the math in your head (let's say you know that 1 mile of EPA rating will actually get you 0.7 mile in real life), when you...

    Model Y full charge range

    I think that rather than focusing on that number next to the battery, Tesla should just get rid of it and stick with the %, while expending the capabilities of the Energy App (by adding range based on last 50 & 100 miles), and make the Energy App accessible with one tap on the Home screen. That...

    No visitation on screen

    Never seen those red and yellow lines appear this way. It will probably go away next time you drive. If not, you can reset with the 2 wheels. I had something somewhat similar happen to me, went away the next day. Can’t remember if it’s right there on the map screen, or if you need to tap the...

    An honest take on Tesla / the Model Y

    The blessing and the curse of Tesla is that they make such unique cars, they bank on people not wanting to go back and creating that brand loyalty. Very similar to Apple a couple of decades ago. I drove a couple of ICE cars recently belonging to family members (admittedly, not luxury cars), and...

    Autopilot and Trust

    These are fair points, especially the pothole one. I could definitely see that. I'm lucky enough that my commute route got recently repaved. As for large vehicles, I feel like the car moved away from trucks and other cars if they creep too close to my lane. But it might be my imagination... Uh...

    Autopilot and Trust

    I've read a few things here and there but I'm still unsure of the answer to this question: What is the benefit to using TACC when you can use autosteer? Wouldn't everyone rather have the car steer AND stay at the right speed?

    DIY Repair Curb Rash on my 21" Uberturbine Wheel.

    Looks great! Can’t even blame mine on summon, just a lot of parallel parking... Might be a dumb question, but couldn’t you have started right away with the spraying after the initial sanding, instead of using the brush?

    Inaccurate Range Stressed New Owner

    I’d be really interested to see how you drive or the kind of roads you are on. I consider myself a pretty conservative driver and I only average 250-260wh/mi at best. Granted most of my driving (85%) is on freeway, but rarely over 70mph. Growing up and when I learned how to drive, I was always...

    2 week old 2021 Model Y - SHUT DOWN while driving

    Actually happened to me in a Ford as well. I was a young driver at the time, and getting on the freeway. Super scary situation, but made it out. I actually don’t even know what the problem ended up being, but I didn’t know any better, so they fixed it and I kept the car for a few years after...

    2 week old 2021 Model Y - SHUT DOWN while driving

    I definitely empathize and it must have been a very scary situation. Not to be an apologist, as Tesla has a ton of flaws, but that being said, it happened to me once in an ICE car, and it happened to my mother once as well. They weren’t 2 week old cars, but they weren’t old cars. Unfortunately...

    Autopilot and Trust

    I have the same experience as OP. I love it, but it is a little stressful when you are going 70 and see bumper to bumper traffic coming up a few hundred feet ahead. I know that the car will stop and usually won’t disengage, but when my significant other is in the car, she tends to tense up (and...

    Anyone else being forced to cancel long-pending MY reservation?

    It’s Tesla we’re talking about, people speculated for pages on another thread that “something was up” because they weren’t getting their first software update a couple of weeks after delivery. Lo and behold, they got their update yesterday and nothing was up, just a good ol’ update to 4.13. The...

    why Wh/mi and not mi/Wh?

    That's a good question. I grew up in Europe (France) and the measure for ICE cars there is the number of liters consumed/100km. So it is closer to what Tesla uses, but it does force you to do some math gymnastics in your head to calculate your range. But I like numbers, so I don't mind.

    Model Y tint pictures

    Looking to match the front windows to the rear factory tint. Has anyone found out what the rear is for a fact? It seems some people in this thread think it is 20%, others 25%. I know it’s not that big of a difference, just curious.

    ACK! Forgot to change limit back to 80% after charging 100%!

    I figured I would ask this question here and not create a new thread, and it’s somewhat related: I noticed last night that the limit for “trip” is now at 90%, but I really thought that when I first got the car in January, the trip started at 80% and daily was 60-80. Did I dream it, or did it...
