    Feature Request: Drive-Through Mode

    Haven't seen anyone post this idea before yet, but I think it would be sweet if we had a drive-through mode for the car. It would limit the car speed to 2mph, but would enable theater so you could watch TV. Anyone who lives on the west coast knows how long those in-n-out drive through lines...

    2023 - Spring Meetup & Drive

    Hello everyone, I recently bought a 2023 Model 3 Performance. Which is to say, I am new to owning an EV, I am new to Tesla, and I am new to the Tesla community. I come from owning an Audi, where there is a big sense of community, and one of the ways it is so is via seasonal meetups and drives...

    Loud buzzing noise coming from under passenger side while Model 3 sitting still in drive (but not while in park)?

    While sitting in drive, there is a loud buzzing noise coming from under the front passenger side. The sound goes away when I put the car in park. Is this normal? I know there are cooling fans but this sounds very loud, almost like a grinding sound. Here is a link to a video of this sound...

    The joy of a road of curves and regen braking

    Yesterday my wife and I drove to Canyon Lake. It is a reservoir about 45 miles east of Phoenix, Arizona. ECB6FFD2-CC9C-4809-A1EC-9A5B26D6059D by adayley posted Sep 24, 2020 at 9:59 AM It is such a joy to drive winding and up and down roads without the need to use the brakes!

    Awful loud scraping noise coming from tire/brake

    Hey guys. Yesterday I noticed an awful high pitch scraping noise coming from the right tire/brake in the back. Especially distinct when backing up and at low speeds. I couldn't find any stones or similar trapped by the brake disk. Tried driving around for a little bit to loosen possible stones...

    Problems putting the car into drive (app and pin to drive)

    In the last few months, since at least v10 update, I've been having problems with getting the app to connect with the car. It almost never connects while I'm sitting in the car. I'll put my phone into airplane mode, then turn airplane mode off, and it will connect then. So I'll drive the car...

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    A few days ago this message showed up: “Dashcam: USB drive is too slow to save-please use a drive with higher write speed” Then I tried to format the usb stick but it still didn’t work. The worked flawlessly for months until now. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    San Francisco Tesla Club Meet Up #3

    Hi Everyone, hope you guys are having a good summer. Are you guys interested in getting together soon for another ride? I'd like to put together another meet up before the end of summer. My original thought was the Napa Valley region and tour some wineries, however, it is unfortunate there's a...

    R and D vs Hold - Dangerous!

    This one's dangerous if not addressed. "Hold" is not a very safe indicator of "Still in D or R, ready to launch" There really needs to be a clear indicator that any touch of the pedal will cause the car to move. My wife pointed out the PRND on screen, top/left corner. Seeing it for the first...
