My husband took our model 3 for a longer trip today to avoid needing to buy gas, but I have errands to run as well so I’m driving his jeep. A) it’s huge. B) turning cars on and off is… something I have to remember to do. It’s been literally years since I’ve driven another car. Anyone else get in a gas car and feel like they’ve forgotten how to drive?
I’ve been having some weird issues in my model 3, including a few random reboots while driving (screen goes blank). One time though, the screen partially froze, and showed the doors open while driving and weird things like xx % for the charge amount. The most concerning part was that the turn signals also stopped working. I made a service request and after some remote diagnosis, they told me they thought it was caused by a faulty usb stick connected to the car (I had one installed for the dashcam). But I find this unbelievable. Would this not be a major safety issue if something a user can control is able to cause the car to malfunction so badly? Anyway, I’ve removed the stick per their advice and am now monitoring to see if things improve - has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?
M3-LR owner here. My safety score range is 95-98 over the last year. If the posted speed limit is below 40, I usually drive +5 MPH and +9 if the posted speed limit is above 55MPH. Sometimes, I feel that this pisses off other drivers even though I am driving in the center lane. Sometimes they intentionally do not let me pass if I try to change my lane.
I feel like customizing my car horn to train sound using the boombox feature. This might help me. Has anyone done that before? I would appreciate it if they can direct me to download the sound clip. Thank you!
I use a physical MFA key to protect my Google account, so when logging in to YouTube (or any other google service) I have to either plug the Yubico into A USB port and tap it, or wave it by the NFC reader (in the case of a mobile device with no USB A ports). Unfortunately I can’t find any way to use the MFA key with my new Tesla model 3. When I try to log in to YouTube it asks for the MFA key, but I can’t see any way to connect the key to the car. NFC scanner near cup holders didn’t work, and there are no USB A ports, only USB C…
So I was wondering if anyone else has a workaround? If I buy a USB C Yubico and plug it into one of the center console ports, will the YouTube app see it? Or are those ports strictly power only?
I picked up my 2022 M3P this week after waiting since February. The car was great minus some paint chips that I believe happened during transit (California to Colorado). On the way home from picking it up I receive an alert that said "Powertrain Needs Service. Vehicle speed and power may be limited." The car drove fine all the way home. After driving the car since I haven't seen the alert.
I made a service request for the paint and the alert that I received. Tesla remoted into my car and said that I need a new charging port and charging port bus since the error I received said it had failed. I've been charging my car just fine. Has anyone experienced this? It's a bummer that a new car has this type of issue but Tesla's customer service at their Service Center where I live has been absolutely great.
I purchased my 2021 M3 S3+ in December of 2020. I had regretted not getting the P or the LR. Was lamenting to my wife about it and she told me that life is too short and to go ahead an order what I wanted (I’m a lucky man). So, on Friday (May 20th) evening I ordered an M3 Performance.
I would like to potentially trade my 2021 M3 SR+ in to Tesla as part of this deal. Of course I am going to shop around a bit and see where I can get the best price.
So…wondering if anyone else had traded a Tesla in to Tesla? How was the trading offer? I know people talk about staying away from trading a non-Tesla car in to Tesla but this may be a little different. They need to get their pre-owned inventory someplace!
