    My Model Y is completely dead after the new vc front

    Hello, I bought a rear ended tesla model y awd from auction. The car was stuck in service mode so I started troubleshooting. I changed the pyro fuse and lv battery on it thinking that it would fix the issue. After turning on, I wanted to enter the service mode to clear the post crash load...

    Got rear-ended at red light while in FSD. Does anyone know if I’ll lose access if (for ex) they have to replace bumped (and calibrate sensors)?

    You can see video of the crash on this thread I put on Twitter. I couldn’t find USB so just recorded the dashcam playing in the car. It drives as if nothing happened (no warnings, noises, etc.) and FSD is still working normally. Trunk functions normally as well. I’m just wondering if the...

    Ouch but no ouch

    Sad day for me........but I am impressed more than ever with the safety engineering in my S. Ironically, was en route to the SC in freeway traffic when someone in a 1991 truck rear-ended me. I suspect he was going about 55 mph and I had slowed to a crawl. The good and the bad: My rear bumper...

    Model 3 gets an "A" for headlights and "Superior" Front Crash avoidance from IIHS

    Some results trickling in. Will be interesting to see the rest when they finish the testing. So glad they fixed the headlights in the 3. Compared to our P85D, the 3's headlights are waaaay better. 2018 Tesla Model 3
