    Are V3 Solar Roof tiles readily available now?

    Most of what I read online mentions that solar shingles will be "readily available soon". are we there yet? will a local installer be able to get product to install at some point in the next six months (before the end of 2021)?

    when are we (not so safe drivers) going to get the Super-Duper update?

    I read where the "safe drivers" were to get this new FSD update a couple of months ago. when are the rest of us going to get it? if this has been beaten to death on this forum, then please just give me the short answer and point me to the thread if you don't mind. I cannot find it.

    autopilot can only be engaged at some moments and not others

    I have a "beef" with how the autopilot works: how can autopilot work and drive my car down said road but if autopilot is not engaged and I drive down said road, it will intermittently allow me to engage autopilot (the grey steering wheel goes on and off, but is mostly off). This means that it...

    Can a vehicle's bluetooth module be replaced?

    I've been having some odd bluetooth connection problems that I mentioned in a previous thread here: Bluetooth connection goes bad after 5-10 minutes of a phone call after quite a bit of effort on my part and a service appointment at Tesla dealer, they tell me that they cannot reproduce the...

    Trunk beeps at me when I walk away

    I have a 2020 7 seater and when I press the button on the trunk to close it, and i try to walk away, it beeps at me and stops closing. i find that I have to stand there while it closes. is this how it is supposed to work? does it have something to do with safety for someone in the vehicle...

    how do I report a map bug from my vehicle while driving?

    There is a place where my car swerves RIGHT INTO A CURB on my way home from work every day. I have to grab the wheel and take over and swerve the car back into the lane. it is where the road curves slightly. As I recall, there is a command that can be given to report this to Tesla, is there...

    wow. thank you for the help with that, Blue X90. here is a link for others if they need more detail: Top 8 Tips and Tricks for your Model 3 - TESBROS here's my original post question for other readers: I've noticed something over the past few days and I'm not sure if it is the newest...

    Navigation image prefers zoomed out view

    I've noticed something over the past few days and I'm not sure if it is the newest software (I'm on 2020.16.2.1) or if it is a setting, but as I'm driving along, using navigation to direct me to my destination, i find this quirk: I'll zoom in to see the streets where I need to turn and greater...

    new MX / MS have wireless cellphone charging. how can I put this in mine?

    here is the link to an article I found online (thanks Spencer): https://electrek.co/2020/01/31/tesla-new-model-s-x-wireless-phone-charger-first-look/ what part(s) will I need to put this in my 2 month old 2020 Model X?

    Bluetooth connection goes bad after 5-10 minutes of a phone call

    It often happens while i'm talking. I'm in the middle of a paragraph, so to speak, and the other person interrupts and says "its making that banging noise again and it is echoing so that I can't understand you". they then hang up and call back and the same thing happens again, after a few...

    Bluetooth connection goes bad after 5-10 minutes of a phone call

    i'm not sure what you mean. i use my phone almost every day and it happens routinely, day after day and even if i haven't used it for a while. as far as it being my phone's fault: I don't think it is my phone's fault. i've had it for years and it never does this on any of my other bluetooth...

    Bluetooth connection goes bad after 5-10 minutes of a phone call

    I have not had this problem with my phone connected to any other cars or headsets. I have not tried this with any other phones. yes, my iPhone X is fully up to date and doesn't have any custom firmware on it. I have not tried testing this with it parked but it happens every time I talk for...

    Bluetooth connection goes bad after 5-10 minutes of a phone call

    when I call someone or if they call me while using my 2020 model X bluetooth, the call works fine at first, but after 5-10 minutes of the call, it goes bad. I hear nothing wrong, but the person on the other end of the line says they hear "banging and echoing" such that they cannot continue...

    side-view mirrors freezing folded in...

    "easy entry profile"?!? what are you talking about, if you don't mind me asking? how do I change the settings for it? do I understand correctly that I'll need to set most any location that I park in bad weather to "unselect" the always fold mirrors...? every new place I park needs this setting?

    side-view mirrors freezing folded in...

    when severe weather hits and my side-view mirrors are folded in, they tend to freeze in and are hard to get back out to safely drive the vehicle. I think it would make sense for tesla to program their system to NOT fold in the mirrors in freezing weather. is there anyway to get the mirrors...

    2019.40.50.7 doesn't see traffic lights?!

    my vehicle is one month old. Gharshk, I hope I don't have a HW2 autopilot computer! I'll take a look at my settings again, thank you.

    2019.40.50.7 doesn't see traffic lights?!

    I believe I am correct that this newest software is supposed to start recognizing stop signs and stop lights. with some careful testing, I AM able to get it to acknowledge that it sees a stop sign. it does so by me leaving the car in autopilot right up to a stop sign and at a point where it is...

    Phantom slow spot on 65mph highway?!

    the area where it happens is right next to an exit and is above another road. there is no way to report this to some(one) so they can address is for the next map update? where does the data come from that tells our cars speed limits and other information?

    Phantom slow spot on 65mph highway?!

    there is an area, perhaps 20 -50 feet long where my car thinks the 65mph speed limit is 40mph. it slows down quite suddenly. The spot is on my way home from work so it happens every day. Is there anything I can do to fix the mapping data that is inaccurate with Tesla? or is it not Tesla...

    crash avoidance outside of autopilot?

    as I'm driving along, while Autopilot is OFF: will my car help me from crashing into things? (My cadillac will slam on the breaks if I get too close to a bush.) will the Tesla do that? if I am not watching and a car in front of me puts on the brakes, will my tesla slam on my brakes for me?

    new owner asks: how do you access the third row in 7 seater?

    Okay well then that explains it: my rear seats don’t work right (they’re faulty or broken). mine don’t work like that at all. Thank you for sending the video.

    new owner asks: how do you access the third row in 7 seater?

    I found the little (hidden) button that partly folds down the seatback of the second row seat, but what do I do next to get the seat to SLIDE forward so someone (small) can climb into the third row? also, when I flip the seat back up, then sometimes it locks in a different position: either the...

    new owner asks questions about autopilot and full self driving quirks

    DirtyT3sla: could you describe how you rest your hand or maybe attach a photo. I've tried this and it doesn't seem to work. I'm wondering if my vehicle is out of specs or something.

    new owner asks questions about autopilot and full self driving quirks

    I just got my model X a week ago. I've been using the "FSD" feature nearly constantly. I find that the way that the vehicle warns me that it thinks that I'm not paying attention is counterproductive. I'm watching the road, like I should be, and I'm getting thrown out of the FSD because I'm...

    Which tesla wheels will fit on a (new) Model X?

    mswlogo: yes, I did read the link that you kindly sent me. that link shows what wheels came with or are options for a model X. It shows their dimensions, etc. It does not tell me whether I can put a 19" wheel from a Tesla Model S (safely) on a Model X.

    Which tesla wheels will fit on a (new) Model X?

    So, wheels from a Tesla Model S or Model 3 will not fit on a Model X?

    Which tesla wheels will fit on a (new) Model X?

    Will all tesla 20” wheels fit? Will any 19 “ tesla wheels fit on a model x? Or are the wheels from a model 3 smaller? I seem to recall mention that some wheels don’t fit over the model X brakes.

    does the vehicle's USB port connect a phone to the car or just power?

    same question, put another way: does an iphone that is plugged into the vehicle's USB port allow one to play music or do other things by wire? or is all of the connectivity through bluetooth and the wire is just to charge the phone's battery?

    getting the best price for a trade-in at Tesla

    I had read on this forum (or that I could get a value of my trade-in from Vroom, Carvana, or Carmax and that Tesla would match the best offer. when I asked my sales advisor locally, he said that they only will match Carmax (not Vroom or Carvana). he also said that they will accept a Carmax...

    I'd like to order today, but get a 2020 model X

    the main reason I want it to be a 2020 is for resale. are people currently receiving Tesla Model X vehicles that are considered to be 2020? Where can I read about and (try to) confirm this? I'm not going to trust a salesman on this.

    I'd like to order today, but get a 2020 model X

    I'd like to get today's price but have my car come as a 2020 vehicle, being delivered sometime in January. is that possible? yes, I realize that I won't get the $1800 luxury tax deduction. I'm wanting a grey Model X with FSD and seven seat cream interior, by the way. thanks, someguy
