    Philly Airport Parking

    Hi all. Travelling to Peru in March with the family, leaving from Philly airport. I've parked there before but not with my Tesla. Looking for recommendations on off-site parking that people have used before. I don't really care about being able to charge as I'll leave it for the 10 days with...

    Are you paying for premium connectivity?

    I have not but have friends that have rented a Tesla and an Ioniq5. With the Tesla, they did get an email that linked to a couple of videos. With the Ioniq5, crickets. Fortunately, they did not have to charge although they did call me and ask how to do it in case they did. And the point about...

    Are you paying for premium connectivity?

    Why would Hertz care about people having a good experience in their Tesla? They don't even tell you how to charge it. And they are selling much of their fleet....

    Creaking Front Suspension

    Thanks for the input. I did reach out to Tesla and mentioned that I suspect it may be control arms and whether it was safe to drive. They said that it was. I'm going to Saratoga Springs so no SC's between me and there. Now that I have it in my head, I may just rent a Kia EV6 for the trip to...

    Creaking Front Suspension

    My car started creaking a bit about 10 days ago - from the driver's side front suspension. In those 10 days, it has gotten progressively worse. I have made a service appointment but as usual, it's about 3 weeks out. Based on research, it sounds like control arms. Assuming that, a couple of...

    Front license plate holder

    Thanks - I didn't realize that until after I had purchased a new one.... 🤷‍♂️

    Front license plate holder

    Exactly. I had a car back into mine (I have the SnapPlate) and the upper part holding the plate flexed (and eventually broke) with no damage to the grill and only a small mark on the bumper that I was able to buff out. I gladly ordered another.

    Have you considered the license plate wrap? I've seen those specifically for CA cars. License Plate Wrap

    Tesla wants to replace my battery because jack points are damaged

    It's hard to tell it that little white spot is sticking out, or an indentation? If you google Model 3 jack points (which are the same) you'll see some articles about cracking around them - there are a bunch of pics as well. This doesn't seem like cracking, but that spot doesn't look like it...

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Well, this has been around for YEARS, it's not a new phenomenon. Like the crappy auto wipers, it gets better and worse as time goes along. Both are dependent on cameras, so it's not just a few lines of code to fix it, unfortunately.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    This isn't really the definition of PB. There are some instances where the car may pick up a speed limit from a road parallel to the highway, or perpendicular, etc, and then it will logically slow down. True PB incidents are when the speed limit indicated never changes but the car brakes...

    When people say don’t leave your battery at 100% or under 10% for long periods of time

    Why bother? It's only the estimated range that is being 'lost'. Set it to percent and forget it. Stop to charge when car says to stop.

    When people say don’t leave your battery at 100% or under 10% for long periods of time

    You'll find a lot of people come up with their own recommendations, for whatever reason, when following Tesla's is perfectly adequate. That's what I do.

    When people say don’t leave your battery at 100% or under 10% for long periods of time

    I don't charge to 100% for a road trip, I did it once and didn't like the lack of regen. 95% gives you some regen (almost normal, IME) and doesn't make a difference in where and when you'll stop to recharge. And I typically do as others have noted, charge to 90% overnight then do the extra 5%...

    App spooling

    I had a similar strange issue this week. Wednesday, I went out out to do errands and the app would 'partially' connect with the car. It would unlock after taking an age to connect, but told me to use my keycard to drive. This happened every time I went to use the car. Thursday, everything worked...

    Do you think she’s a goner? I was hit by a truck changing lanes. Estimates not in yet.

    It looks like the rocker panel has a bit of a bend in it, in which case the battery pack may be compromised. If that's the case, along with deployed airbags, probably totaled... Hope all are ok!

    End of lease inspection, repair & payment

    Sounds to me like you can get the least expensive matching tires you can find, as long as they have proper load rating, etc.

    Interesting. Tesla website (which they appear to have significantly revamped) still shows max of 170.

    Tesla Battery Preconditioning: When, How, and Why You Should Do It

    ...as I noted in my post - "Perhaps it's different than what the car does as you're approaching a Supercharger stop while navigating, but it's the same thing in concept." So I think we are all saying the same thing.

    FSD V12 (end to end AI)

    I don't have FSD and probably wouldn't even if it worked perfectly, but would still like to try it again (tried it once early in 2022 and it almost got me killed at one particular spot) when V12 is generally available. Guess I have to wait a few months....

    Except I don't have a wall charger, I use a 240v outlet. I see about the same decrease in % whether I'm plugged in our not.

    Can you add Wiper Control to the cards on Tesla display?

    Not necessarily, I think they did upgrade the cameras with the HW4 cars.

    Winter Charging in Rochester, NY ?

    I don't believe that is true when you're using Scheduled Charging or Scheduled Departure. My understanding of how those work is that the car will only charge during the window that is set. That's borne out by the fact that when I precondition at home before going out, it always lowers the %...

    Tesla Battery Preconditioning: When, How, and Why You Should Do It

    You absolutely can precondition that battery manually by using the fan icon in the app. Preconditioning is just warming up (or cooling down) the battery. I do it for a few minutes every time I take the car out for the first time. Perhaps it's different than what the car does as you're...

    Winter Charging in Rochester, NY ?

    Well, Tesla recommends always keeping it plugged in when not in use so.... 🤷‍♂️ When it's in my garage, it's always plugged even though I have Scheduled Charging set to start at 10:30 pm. I don't think it's necessarily doing anything at random times to keep the battery warm, although perhaps...

    Sometimes playing currently song in the Apple Music in-app follows the screen, and sometimes it doesn't.

    I have to correct this - I noticed yesterday that there IS a shuffle play icon now - not sure if that's a new addition or not. So now I CAN play on shuffle right from the start, which is good.....

    BEST SPARE TIRE KIT FOR MODEL Y

    I think the only 'real' spare tire kit is the Modern Spare. Others have pieced together a spare tire setup for much less using various Japanese brand spares from junk yards.

    Should be a No Wake zone I think!

    Can you add Wiper Control to the cards on Tesla display?

    The camera at the top of the windshield. That's why the wipers will randomly turn on when it's completely dry, if the camera detects dirt on the windshield in front of it.

    Can you add Wiper Control to the cards on Tesla display?

    Wait, you don't have time to sit in the car, but you have the time to sit around at home with an iPad app? 🤔 Frankly, I'd rather they focus their time on fixing things like the auto wipers instead of messing around with an app that mimics everything you can do in the car.

    Has anyone tried cross climates on MYP

    My neighbor has a set on his Subaru Forester and he says they are significantly louder than whatever the OEM's were. And that's with engine noise.

    So if it's that big a deal for you, don't buy the Cybertruck! Simple, 🤷‍♂️

    Can you add Wiper Control to the cards on Tesla display?

    You can access the owners manual on your iPad and sit in the car, nice and toasty, and go through everything. :cool: This 'trick' is explained well there.

    What did they tell you when you bought it? If it was eligible in 2023, and you bought it in 2023, then yes.

    Sometimes playing currently song in the Apple Music in-app follows the screen, and sometimes it doesn't.

    I don't use Apple Music (I'm a Spotify guy) but the in-car music apps aren't the greatest in terms of integration. For example, with Spotify, if I switch to another audio source, then go back to Spotify, it doesn't pick up where I left off. It goes to the very beginning of my playlist...
