    Model Y test-drive experience (not a current Tesla owner)

    Considering buying a Model Y and Tesla were kind enough to provide us with an overnight test drive. Some thoughts feelings but some disclosure first: - I am a 'young-ish middle aged' woman (been driving for over 25 years, will leave it at that) - I don't currently own a Tesla - I do own a...

    Changing Lanes

    Hello: When I use FSD I always have to confirm a lane change. I cannot get the car to change lanes on its own. I live in Ontario Canada. Does anyone know if lane changing is restricted in some jurisdictions and permitted in others without having to confirm it before the car changes lanes...

    Acceleration boost in Ontario?

    Hey - for those who have purchased the Acceleration boost for LR AWD in Ontario, does the $2700 include tax, or is it actually $2700 + tax? I’m definitely going to buy it after my next pay check, I just want to know what’s going to go on my credit card.

    I just traded in my 3 (2018 model) for a Y. Question about Tune In. On the 3, I was able to get MSNBC and CNBC live streams. Those don't seem to come up on searches, globally or narrowed to the U.S. Anyone in CANADA or the U.S. with this problem, will they eventually come up. I...

    Seasucker as a roof rack for Tesla Model 3

    I was thinking about using Seasucker racks with our Model 3 for a while and have decided to give it a try. The idea of using their board rack as a universal roof rack came from one of the thread in this forum (someone is using them this way). So since I had a Thule ski rack already I bought the...

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    Is there still something wrong at the Kingston site? I'm local and drive by often, and usually hit the button on the map in my car to see how many people are charging (out of curiosity). It seems to always say only 1 or 2 stalls are available, but it's at times where I know that's probably not...

    Greater Toronto Area Orders and Deliveries

    Ordered Oct. 2nd in Toronto, early in the new quarter. I was hoping for a late November delivery but at this rate, it looks like it'll be a December delivery. With an order that early, I'm surprised I haven't even gotten a VIN yet. Anyone else in the same boat? LR AWD MSM Black Interior Aero...

    Construction has apparently started on a new Supercharger in London, Ontario.

    Supercharger - Kincardine, ON

    Digging has started for the Kincardine Supercharger... I think. Earlier this year, another TMC user announced the Canadian Tire in Kincardine would host the Kincardine ON Supercharger.

    Ontario: Autopilot issues between 400 and Orillia?

    Does anyone else have issues heading north on HWY 11 after the 400 split? For some reason it suddenly drops to 50 kph and sometimes as low as 40 kph even though the posted limit is 90. No signage that the car would be possibly misinterpreting so far as I could see. I was fortunate that nobody...

    Model 3 vs Used Toyota Corolla Cost Calculation

    Cost Calculation in Ontario Canada for a new Model 3 vs a used Toyota Corolla with 120,000KM, driving 40K per year. The difference is only $1,163.00/year more for a Tesla and the used Corolla has none of the safety features or performance of a Tesla! Wow!

    3rd party Winter Tires quote (Ontario)

    Living in North York Ontario, I didn't want to go with Tesla's Pirelli Sottozero II winter tires because they aren't that great in snow. So I was shopping around for about a month, calling Tesla service to make sure I was getting all my specs right. I ended up going with: 18" Michelin X-Ice...

    Hi there, First post here on the forum and proud 'co-owner' (wife's car) of a new Model 3. We were somewhat disappointed to learn that creep is not available here in Canada due to the lack of a standalone key fob (otherwise absolutely amazing car). With the most recent software update, I...
