Is this another snarky response? I don’t want to assume but since you’re contributing to the thread I am thinking you read the entire thread. In short, I posted something and people responded. I was not asking for help. I was venting and offering an opinion on something regarding my new MY. One guy (now 2?) offered an opinion that wasn’t very helpful and was already answered in a previous post. Thanks for chipping in though.
I was the OP. I posted a statement it was not a plea for help. I was looking for feedback and opinions on my topic. I received plenty of good responses that were on topic and helpful even if the person disagreed with my opinion. The one person replied that I shouldn’t be so cheap and should just buy the thing I was complaining about Tesla not including. I had posted that I already had purchased it after my initial post. Therefore what he posted was no longer relevant or on topic and not particularly helpful to me. Thanks for your 2 cents but I decided to leave em.
The best part about not coming with one, is that you as a user can pick.
Some users pick to buy a spare.
Some users pick to buy some goop.
I personally have a 12v compressor already, but do not carry goop nor a spare. Have not had a tire blow out on a road trip in 20+ years. All of my flat tires are nails around town. If I did have a tire blow out on a road trip, would find a local tow truck and call them up. Rather deal with that once per 10-20 years, over lug around a 50 pound tire.
I got my Model Y Friday 10/10/20. My left rear tire was completely flat 10/11/20 after driving 60 miles. Fortunately, most of the air leaked while the car was in my driveway and I had a tire plug kit and compressor at home. I was going to make a post with the same exact points and opinions of the OP until I found this thread.
Also, I don't know about the specific type of TPMS in the Model Y, but this stuff might be OK to use (I always have it in my motorcycle tires): Ride-On is safe to use in combination with most TPMS or Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensors, provided that they are hermetically sealed. Ride-On is a liquid and if it gets inside the sensor, this may affect its efficacy negatively. Always check with your dealer if your sensor is hermetically sealed.
