You are not imagining it; on my Long Range Model Y (VIN 10xxx) the front passenger door sometimes does not close flush with the rear door, yet other times the front passenger door does close flush with the rear door.I have had my SR for a little over a week. For my needs, the SR range is fine. I live on the island, so a road trip is basically just a trip to Costco. An extensive road trip would include Target. For me, the "trickle charge" speed of just plugging it into the wall is too slow. My friends all plug theirs in overnight, but I play this game called "FU-Helco" (Helco is Hawaii Electric Co....) I have 70 solar panels, and I get credit when I feed extra to the grid during the day, and when I take from the grid (at night) they charge me. So for me, "non peak" is during the day. For that reason, I got a fast charger, so that I could quickly charge during the day, during the few hours that my car is home and not out and about.
My VIN is 114XXX (white/white/induction wheels) and my paint and finishes were flawless, as is the inside. No rattles, creaks, squeaks so far. The passenger front door seems like it is a teeny bit not flush with the body, but sometimes I see it and sometimes I just think it's my imagination.
I came from a BMW 5 series (and have owned all the BMW suvs except the x6 prior) and I find the suspension just fine. I rather prefer a rough suspension and tight, sport steering. Acceleration is amazing. Handling is impressive. Stereo is fine, the BMW one seemed better, but honestly what do I know.
What I don't like is the lack of phone interface for seeing/sending texts and calls compared to the simple text-based interface in my BMW. I also with the front camera would show me whats in front of me when I pull into a parking space. My BMW showed me the lines on either side so that I could park right in the middle of the stall without looking out the window. It has side cameras, so maybe I am just not knowing how to use that?
I don't like fiddling with the screen while driving, except for small stuff like raising or lowering the ac temp. But the buttons on the steering wheel cover like 90% of what I would need. I am a heavy user of the Tesla voice commands, wheras I never used them in my BMW.
Print on the screen could be bigger. Time, temperature, text messages are pretty much unreadable by me but I am never needing the exact time, and can do without texting while driving anyway.
Love the car so far. It was meant to just be a transition car until Mercedes or BMW came out with a palatable small electric SAV. But boy, I love driving this way more than I thought I would. Joining team Tesla: A FANGIRL IS BORN!
ah, let me fiddle with the camera display. thanks!You are not imagining it; on my Long Range Model Y (VIN 10xxx) the front passenger door sometimes does not close flush with the rear door, yet other times the front passenger door does close flush with the rear door.
Have you tried setting the back up camera display so that the two side repeater camera views are also visible? When the backup camera view is displayed you can swipe up to add the side repeater camera views and have a composite view. (Swipe down to return to the standard backup camera view.)
Thank you! I saw this in another post and it became the reason that I mainly now use the voice controls. Some of them are pretty cute, which my friends get a kick out of. They are awesome, and so much safer than poking at the screen... which I do take some time to do while sitting in the car in my garage.@my808 also check out voice commands for sending texts. Tesla has the best voice recognition in my (limited) experience with this feature. There's a spreadsheet summary of these that I could include, but I can't figure out how to attach anything other than PDFs to this post and the list doesn't fit on printed page very well!
