    Charging issue

    Having an issue I think has been addressed before on here. New 2020 Model 3 LR dual motor I picked up in December. When I try to charge it says the charging cable is not secure. Appears on the left side of the charging port a black piece may have broken off? See attached photos. Will Tesla...

    Internet connection speed

    I have the one year trial of premium connectivity. Have tried running multiple speedtests in multiple locations on the browser using Fast.com and speetest.net. The fastest I can seem to speedtest anywhere in Southern California is a download speed of 5mbps. Does AT&T throttle Tesla's...

    Plates and registration

    Picked up my Model 3 on December 28. Haven't seen my California plates or DMV registration arrive yet. Has anyone else with a late December pick up date received theirs yet? Want to know when I should begin to worry... and I want my plates so I can apply for my carpool stickers!

    Lone pine, CA supercharger

    If you look at the California supercharger thread you will see that it happened this week sometime. Unknown why or when the new wrapped up chargers will go online but for now only four are there.

    Supercharger - Lone Pine, CA (LIVE 28 Jan 2015, expanded Dec 2019, 8 V3 stalls)

    Can’t believe they ripped out six stalls and left only four. Last weekend all ten were in use when I arrived — I can’t imagine four working out too well this holiday weekend. :(

    Lone pine, CA supercharger

    Feel free to delete this post? Found the same question in another post. But my question was why lone pine went from ten Superchargers to four this week — I know they have three new ones under construction but until they get those online it’s gonna be a terrible weekend for charging there with...

    Sentry mode USB

    Looking at adding an SSD for sentry mode, but my front two USB ports are already in use with Tesla's wireless phone charger. Can anyone recommend a USB splitter and SSD drive that would work well so I can use both the wireless phone charger (which can charge two phones at once) AND also have...

    Tesla rage

    Was pulling up towards my condo complex driveway when a pickup truck that had been following me up the street in Long Beach, CA for all of one block pulls to the left of me with his passenger window rolled down and honks. So I roll down my window to see what he wants. As soon as my window is...

    Parking at Los Angelos Union Station

    The underground parking lot at Union Station is VERY safe. They have multiple J1772 charging stations in Gateway Plaza parking. Parking is $8 max per 24 hours. Charging rate is $1 per hour with a max of $3 per PlugShare. Charging stations are on level P2-D. There are more chargers at P2-H...

    Voice not working

    I downloaded 50.7 two days ago. Since then I notice that about 80 percent of the time voice commands are not working - if I press the button for a voice command it does not hear my voice and all and just prompts me to talk. Other times it will sit like its waiting for me to talk for 30 or 45...

    Supercharger stopped charging

    Was in Barstow today driving home from Vegas in my lr awd. Had limit set to 80 percent - but was also using nav to drive home and the nav said I needed less than that to continue my trip home. Started charging with 95 miles left and said I’d be done in 25 minutes - was charging slow. Walked...

    No premium connectivity even though I’ve paid.... anyone else?

    50.7 gave me my missing premium features on my brand new Long Range AWD, But car still says I'm subscribed to standard connectivity. I think there are some real problems with premium connectivity with Tesla.

    No premium connectivity even though I’ve paid.... anyone else?

    My car continues to say I have (and give me) standard connectivity even though I picked it up last weekend as a brand new model 3 long range AWD -- which is supposed to come with a year of premium for free. I have spoken with support about it and they have opened a ticket with the "accounts"...

    Extension cord

    I have a 50 foot 12 gauge that I was using to charge a Prius Prime before I installed a Level 2 charger. Worked fine but even the 12 gauge got a bit warm!

    About to send LA to Mammoth in the SR

    I'm up in Mammoth every few weeks and just picked up my long range AWD. Can you please let us know how your trip went, where you charged, how long it took to charge, etc.? I'd like to be "prepared" when I go. I've also given thought to trying camp mode up there once at Mammoth RV park. I got...

    Premium Connectivity not enabled

    In my case, the car very clearly tells me I'm "standard" instead of "premium". :(

    Premium Connectivity not enabled

    Interesting. If you go in your car does it say you are subscribed to standard connectivity instead of premium? Or did you just lose features?

    Premium Connectivity not enabled

    No but no one in the buena park store is answering their phones. Might need to drive there instead.

    Premium Connectivity not enabled

    Picked up my car yesterday (all wheel drive long range). Account says I have complimentary premium connectivity until December 30, 2020. But my vehicle shows standard connectivity only. Spoke with Tesla support on the phone this morning. They said one part of my account shows the premium...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    No issues at all - car was perfect from what I could tell! :) Very pleased with the delivery. They showed me the car before signing papers even before I asked to see the vehicle and helped me connect my Tesla app to the car as a key and much more. Great experience, I picked up in Buena Park.

    My online account says I have one year free trial. For WiFi I’m using my phone hotspot since my garage is in a different building than my condo - shared garage here.

    Software updates and wifi

    Got my new model 3 long range awd today. Should have a year of free premium connectivity and my Tesla account reflects that, but the car says I only have standard connectivity. Any idea how to get it to show the premium connectivity? Also I’m connected to wifi at home using my hotspot but if I...

    Delayed again until 1 pm Sunday. Better than being told you aren’t getting a car at all like some of the standard range+ people are being told today.

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    Just got a text from Fremont confirming the pickup for tomorrow at 9 am, and five minutes later got a call from Buena Park saying the car won’t arrive until tomorrow and that we need to reschedule yet again from 9 am to 1 pm tomorrow but that it might slip yet again depending on the delivery...

    Tesla told me my test drive is not happening because they have no cars!

    It happened because Tesla focused on selling every last possible car to meet short term sales goals for their stockholders instead of worrying about the longer term effects of not having cars for future customers to test drive. So they sold one more car this month, but potentially lost dozens...

    Build quality

    Thanks! In terms of build quality, makes me feel a lot better and I appreciate it. In terms of communication from Tesla during the delivery process, I was just hoping for more than “don’t make any holiday plans between Dec 15 and Dec 31. We will let you know when the car is ready - and if...

    Please reassure me that I’m not making a huge mistake by buying a Tesla Model 3. If all the delivery and order issues haven’t been enough along with the total lack of any communication from Tesla during the process since clicking order.... I Keep seeing stories while waiting for my delivery...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    I think the bigger issue is focusing on regions to get every last sale possible. We all know if you don’t get a car before December 31 you won’t get it until March because Tesla will focus on Europe and other markets. Until Tesla begins delivering cars every month / week / day of the year to...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    Even after delivery I will still remember the poor ordering service. And it will be a factor along with post sales customer service - no matter how good the car is - in deciding whether or not to order another Tesla in the future when other manufacturers have better electric vehicles in the...

    Have a tentative scheduled delivery for the 28th but no VIN yet. Been trying to see if the delivery will really happen. No one in Buena Park is picking up the phone in sales or delivery. My SA has been completely non-responsive since I placed my order. Not sure where to go from here other...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    Did a chat with Tesla to try to get information and to see again if I could be paired with an inventory vehicle. Was told I'd get a call back from delivery team within an hour. Instead of a call, I got this text: "We received your chat inquiry about a delivery ETA. We are not able to...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    Sigh - my exact configuration is listed in existing inventory at the delivery center where I'm supposed to pick up my car. Asked to be switched to that car and was told if I did -- even though I have no VIN yet -- that I'd be bumped to the bottom of the list for deliveries and wouldn't get the...

    California, The Land That Time Forgot

    Just spoke with someone in sales at Buena Park about not having a VIN or any idea of a delivery timeframe -- and that I and I'm sure others want to be able to make holiday plans. Was told sorry but there's nothing that can be done, and I could get a text at any time. And if I give them ANY...

    Current inventory vehicles

    but why not offer them to people waiting instead of giving them to a brand new order? If I found a white one could I call Tesla and switch and get immediate delivery of one of those instead of waiting for mine?

    Current inventory vehicles

    Yeah but these are base lr all wheel drive 18” wheel black interior vehicles. Someone in SoCal has got to be waiting for that variant of car? I can’t believe they have delivered to everyone wanting that variant already?

    Current inventory vehicles

    Just did a search for current inventory of model 3’s in Southern California and seeing a few long range awd ones in blue and red at various delivery centers. These appear to be new with no mileage listed and are 2020 models. I ordered white but Given that a lot of people haven’t gotten their...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Are VIN's assigned by someone at headquarters or at the delivery center or what's the process? IE - when I eventually finally get a source code VIN does that mean my vehicle is about to be built, *has* been built and is in Fremont, is at the delivery center, or what?

    Ordered 12/7/2019. Still no VIN or any communications from Tesla. I'm supposed to pick up in Buena Park. I *did* go to the Buena Park mall yesterday and saw several truckloads of Tesla model 3's being emptied into a fenced off area by the old Sears Auto Center that's closed. Now every time I...

    Scheduled charging question

    I've waiting to get my model 3 and have a question on charging schedules. I'm on a time of use (TOU) plan and I do not want to charge between 4 pm and 9 pm daily. So basically - if I get home at 6 pm, I want to have the Tesla wait to charge until 9:05 pm. If I get home at 10 pm, I want it to...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Today there are several "new" model 3's in existing inventory for Southern California but all have odometers of 1,000+ miles. Are these demo vehicles they are getting rid of? If so, why would they be considered new? Does that mean they are eligible for the tax credit still? Also, why would...
