    Car shut down in Autopilot/Autosteer, had to get out of vehicle to restart.

    On the interstate, using autosteer/autopilot, even though I had my hand on the wheel I occasionally had to wiggle the wheel a bit extra when I got a warning. Then I get a series of warnings- 'Reduced Power', 'Shutting down', car undriveable, a little bit of a shudder when I tried to accelerate...

    A Charger Holder/Holster that holds onto Tesla J1772 Adapter

    Tesla J1772 Adapter I have one of those cheap plastic doohickies* that allows me to dock the end of my tesla charger cable outside while the actual wall charger unit is inside the garage. Convenient and even survived getting popped off by me backing up into it, slid it back on its base and...

    Aggressive Snow Driving Dynamics, Winter Recharging

    We're finally getting some real winter here which I'm noticing since I live at the highest ski area in Vermont. I love winter driving, but I'm not all that excited about the Tesla having good traction in an inch of snow while navigating a stripmall, I'm more interested in whether it can power...

    Average age in the US = 38. Average age of Tesla owner = 54; Average age of onset of presbyopia = 45. What this means is that the vast majority of Tesla drivers are 'farsighted', including me. You get old, your eye's lenses get stiff.... So this means that there is a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge market...

    OBDII Data, Scanners, Adapters, Apps for Model Y

    I could not resist the data tsunami that 'Scan My Tesla' app offters. Of course you need an On Board Diagnostics adapter since there isn't an OBD port and needs a bluetooth OBD scanner. For the bluetooth scanner, it seems like the OBDLinkMX+ might be the best security wise but there are a bunch...

    My Door Handles are Invisible In the Dark!

    I Love the blacked out look of the car, I love the deep blue color of the car.... but as the days get shorter and the weather colder, I realize that finding the door handles is going to be a challenge, especially with gloves on! I also appreciate living and recreating in areas with little light...

    Where to hide or stash a key card on the outside of the vehicle.

    So I have stashed a card on the outside of my vehicle for emergencies. I'm wondering whether anyone else does this or how or where they stash the card. Doing things like skiing, swimming, kayaking, several day hiking trips especially if you've done a car shuttle, Or just going to a beach where...

    A New Tesla Salutation How to say HELLO

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ When I drive my '80's era Porsche around, other drivers of old Porsches will always wave or blink their headlights just to say hello and to recognize how rare these cars are. People who drive the new expensive Porsches never wave. When driving my Y around I find some of the Tesla...

    Poor Regeneration when starting off down a large grade.

    I spend a fair amount of time at a ski area, and when leaving will start off with a nearly 2000' decline. As a new user I've gotten a bit addicted to watching the 'Energy' graph and, when trying, can usually drive the car with much better efficiency than predicted. But, when starting off with...
