    First Desert Road Trip

    I go to Flag often but with a LR model. In the summer, the car computer is dead on driving around 78-79 mph on I-17. In the winter, it’ll adjust down around 5% or a little more soon after you leave. My advice is to see how the projection holds up from Phoenix to Cordes Junction. If you’re...

    290mi at max charge after 6 months

    I know what you mean, but I use the nav to tell me if I can get there or not on longer trips. The miles projection is based on rated miles and not accurate if you drive faster than the rated wh/mi anyway. It would be great if the car had an option to show you both miles and % at the same...

    Bio Hazard Now Standard on Model Y

    I used it on my X a few times in dusty parking lots and it’s annoyingly loud as you describe. I wouldn’t use it except for special situations.

    Model Y 82kW Battery Pack

    I don’t think you need to scan. Just look at your energy chart in the car and multiply the wh/mi on the left by the range estimate right, then divide by the % battery you have at the time. Mine always comes in around the 78,200 to 78,900 range which would be the usable battery for the 82 kWh...

    First road trip

    I use ABRP to get an idea before going but use the car during the trip. The car is very accurate. If you get different projections split the difference. ABRP takes weather into account. I just took a road trip and ABRP was very conservative until I adjusted the reference consumption to 250...

    290mi at max charge after 6 months

    I agree with the advice to change to the % display in the car. I just did a one time calc of what minimum % I was comfortable with (eg, across town and back + 5%). And then never thought about the range projection again. For daily driving, it doesn’t matter (except maybe that minimum) and for...

    Driving from Seattle area to Mt. Rainer

    What do you use in ABRP for your reference consumption. I just did a road trip from Phoenix to Moab, UT to Denver. Then went Denver to Durango to Phoenix coming back. At first, ABRP was really conservative and way off using the reference consumption it determines itself from the car, but if I...

    Shops for Wheel/Tires Changes?

    Discount Tire is called America’s Tire in some markets.

    Tesla will use camera to monitor driver behavior

    Autopilot is standard. The upgrade is Full Self Driving. If you have a 3 or Y purchased after they made that standard (2019 some time), this effects your car.

    2021 Model Y Tire Options for better ride & range

    I got my AWD Model Y with the Inductions in March. Before ordering I weighed the range vs dark wheel look over and over. Now 3 months in I’m so glad I went with Inductions. I came from a Model X with standard Slipstreams and other than on lumpy interstates where the air suspension makes a...

    Final costs of Tesla Y

    Tesla can tell you the final number for your location. In Arizona, the license and registration is only $90 for 5 years on EVs and the only tax is the city sales tax that is the same you pay at any store (8% for me). That differs from some of the other posts in other locations so you can see...

    Model Y PPF and window tinting options in AZ

    I used Cactus Tint on Raintree in Scottsdale for two cars for 3M tint and Suntek PPF only on front to mirrors. They’re straight forward and can advise you and do nice work. I also recently did tint and PPF on a newer Y at Bulldog Detail in Scottsdale because I was also doing brake caliper...

    Model Y Range LR Vs Performance

    I got an AWD with 20” Inductions in March, added the acceleration boost and got my brake calipers painted red with white Tesla decals. Instant cheaper performance looking Y with a better ride and all season tires. I like the ride. Feels sporty stiff and fun but I may not be as picky. I only...

    New Model Y has version 2020.47.104

    I also have periodic double speed limits. Must be a bug. I’m just guessing on the 15 and !, that you are in a place that the speed limit is too slow for autopilot to engage. Like a garage?

    82kwh LR?

    I have a 158XXX VIN and used the energy chart miles projection X wh/mi divided by 1000 and then divided by the % remaining to back into a battery size of 78.2 kWh. I would expect that to be usable battery and it checks out at 240 wh/mi to provide 325.8 miles. Since there would always be a...

    DRAGY Times LR AWD w/Performance Boost Upgrade

    That explains it. Thanks. I just added the boost yesterday so I was curious about the real deal on this. Good summary.

    DRAGY Times LR AWD w/Performance Boost Upgrade

    I read on another discussion that the Tesla advertised times for the AWD are from a stop, but the Performance times were with a rollout. I’m not sure if that’s true, but the implication was that the AWD with Performance Boost isn’t that far off from the Performance MY. I think it doesn’t...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    Wow — this works. I had US Bank for 2.49% and emailed them and asked if I could move to Chase. I didn’t say anything about rates. My current loan is Chase so I already have a login and that was my main ask. 30 minutes later they email that it’s all set with Chase at 2.04%. So I didn’t get...

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    I’m trying to obsessively look for my VIN on my order and can’t get in either. I get to the main account page OK, but if I click Manage it hangs for a long time and times out and goes back to the Tesla home page.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    Wouldn’t that bill need 60 votes in the Senate? None of us really know, but I don’t see how that passes in this Congress at all, let alone this year unless some dynamic changes.

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    Yes. But you can dismiss it as you approach ....... if you remember. I’ve had some close calls while standing under the open door while my wife drives up.

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    I did mine two years ago. So my memory is a little faint but I remember being worried after watching videos on YouTube and for me it was pretty easy. The brake pedal is easier. You remove the existing pedal and it’s easy to slide the new one on. The accelerator goes over the existing pedal...

    PSA trade in value at Carmax

    I have a Y in order and am trading in my 18 MX. Carvana quoted me $2,500 less than Tesla. But it took me several days and a few calls to get a quote. The online quote had a “looks like you stumped us” message with instructions to call in. I was going to then check CarMax but they would have...

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    Silver performance pedals. They’re inexpensive and easy to install and make the inside of the car look sportier.

    Now or Later

    $7,000. Won’t that need 60 votes in the Senate? I don’t see that happening at all.

    Positive Trade in Offer

    Similar — Tesla offered me $2,500 more for my car than Carvana. When you then take the sales tax benefit of trading into account, the difference was larger.

    Introducing Agent P - My Second Tesla (2021 Model Y LR)

    If you want to finance it, just reduce the amount of cash you put in or the amount from your trade applied to the purchase by $2,000. That increases your loan by that amount and leaves $2,000 in your pocket that can be spent on the acceleration boost after purchase. Same effect as financing...

    Introducing Agent P - My Second Tesla (2021 Model Y LR)

    Glad to hear that you’re happy with the transition from X to Y. I have a Y on order and am making the same change. Since you’re doing a lot of customizations, I’m curious if you are planning any PPF and/or ceramic? I did the PPF on my X but not ceramic. I’m thinking about the ceramic on the...

    Took Delivery 2/19

    Keep in mind that your sales tax is on the net purchase price (purchase minus trade value). So if your pick up site is in a city with an 8% sales tax and you are offered $10,000 for the trade, that is comparable to a sale to Carvana/CarMax/Private of $10,870 ($10,000 / (1 - .08)). This can...

    Tax credit (Green ACT)

    I just scanned the article and bill linked above and it appears the income limitation is only on used vehicles. I went fast but it also looked like you can take a credit only once every 3 years. I think that’s also only on used, but I’m not positive. The new car credit section reads more...

    MY with new console spotted today

    Just from reviewing posts and news on the internet. I see stories in Oct of the 3 battery increasing to 82, but I don’t see anything similar for the Y. So, I believe and don’t believe all sorts of things. Thanks though.

    MY with new console spotted today

    I’m about ready to order now. I realize nobody knows, but do you think there’s any chance of a near term battery update similar to the 3 going to 82 kWh?

    Anyone thinking of switching to a refresh Model X?

    I think it’s preference. I’m thinking of going the other way. A 2018 MX to 2021 MY. I just test drove a LR AWD and liked it a lot. But I have an MX 75D so this would be a range increase for me. I really like the X though but I can downsize for no cash out of pocket with a lower car payment...

    Squeaking from back seat

    My 2018 had a squeak in the rear seat when I first got it. The service center completely removed and reinstalled it. I think they also put in some other padding, but I’m not sure. No squeaks since.

    What to do in first 7 days

    I had shudder in my 2018 and got it fixed two weeks ago. No other issues (knock on wood) in first year. The only other things I can think of that I’ve read on the forums and experienced is that water does drop on the seats when you open the FWDs in heavy rain (which can be compensated for by...

    Poll: Does your X have the "Shudder" issue?

    Just picked up my late 2018 X 75D with 20” stock wheels today from the service center with replaced half shafts and clevis mount (also got HW 3). Only drove home but shudder appears to be gone. The tech said it’s not a permanent fix. I’m not sure if that’s official or just his opinion based...

    Beeping after v10 update

    Any news on this? I picked up my X from the service center today with an upgrade to the HW 3 computer and it does this exact thing you describe. Red arcs and high pitched beeps. Seems to always be left side.

    Volume problems

    I’ve had this a few times on my X since the Christmas update with text messaging and the follow up update. Resetting fixes it but it comes back after using the new text message feature. But not every time. I’m going to stop using that until the next update.

    Poll: Does your X have the "Shudder" issue?

    Late 2018 pre Raven X 75D on stock 20” slipstream wheels and Continental tires. My fix appointment is coming up in two weeks. I made the appointment in the app. They pushed it out a few weeks to await parts. I have haven’t spoken to anybody yet but am optimistic it’s getting fixed since I’m...

    2016 90D vs 2017 75D Distance Delta?

    I have a 2018 MX 75D. It’s rated at 237, but was 232 from the start. At 10,000 miles and now get 220-222. I have the factory 20” wheels.

    My fronts and backs tires are different sizes and therefore can’t be rotated. Did 2016 models have the same size tires?

    Anyone brought the Model X SunShade from weathertech?

    I have the Heatsheild and it works well in AZ sun. It’s a two piece. 1 is the front up to the visors and provides total coverage. The second is for above. I’ve only used that twice. That piece has suction cups and works. I like it since I mostly just cover the front unless the car will be in...

    FOUR active software updates currently - why?

    12.1.1 updating my X now. Any idea what it is? Probably bug fixes so quickly after 12.1
