  • Wasn’t a fan of regenerative breaking and turned it off after few mins of driving. May be it’s better on highways.

    When I first took delivery of the car 100 miles away and drove it home, it was an awful ride due to the marked regen braking. For the first few days of use it caused so much jerking that I developed neck pain. I never had that feeling on the regen in my hybrid vehicles, where it was the pressure on the brakes rather than taking off my foot from the accelerator that caused the regen to occur.

    But I persisted ( with a couple of naproxens). After a week or so I got the hang of it and it took a full month to do one pedal driving and not coast by taking my foot off the accelerator, like I used to do in the ICE cars. Now driving an ICE car has become difficult.

    • not sure if it's a bug or not, but I wasn't able to find this thread from searching in the search bar on the top right part of the webpage

      anyways, I recently got the new update for 5% faster acceleration and hold mode. full 1 pedal driving now. haven't been able to test out the extra acceleration yet as it's cold but I'm looking forward to it.

      also, had my first problem with my car. had condensation in one of my tail lights. scheduled mobile service to come out to my house and they replaced it in 5 minutes. was pretty nice.

      • I know this is a Tesla thread but any thoughts about the new Ford Mustang Mach e? Tesla rip off yes, but it looks promising.

          Really does look nice - let's see it deliver on both specs and experience. Still have my Y reservation active -

          • There's already a thread about it that's why.

            • Can something be so ugly it becomes desirable?
              What market are they trying to capture with this?
              Not people who already drive trucks. I doubt they will be converted.

              • Wow. Not their greatest moment.

                • Oh Elon, it looks so different. I wonder about must have accessories. My camper and toolbox and diesel tank. You think they will fit?

                  Might want to rethink a few thinks. Like how make claims about how rugged this beast is.

                  Bless you heart Elon. I'll stick with my El Camino for now. If you got a camper I can sell the RV! Any plans for a toilet?

                  • Yeah, that 'truck' looks a bridge too far - Delorean truck.

                    Who knows, if it crushes in specs and performance, I'm sure some urban folk will find a reason to get this. The rural folk? Perhaps in a gen or two. maybe. when coal dies and our planet is 2 degrees warmer. Perhaps. maybe.

                    • Cybertruck. This is the thread that keeps on giving. Not sure any F150 people are going to change over to drive a triangle on wheels. It looks remarkably like the pinewood derby car I built in cub scouts as a child.

                      • I seriously thought it was some joke when they first rolled it out.

                        The event was all around cringey, with the windows unexpectedly shattering during the ball experiment, along with Elon's poor presentation skills.

                        I'm still holding out to upgrade to the Y in a year or two.

                            • That looks like a tough truck bed to use for most people who use their truck bed 'normally'.

                              • If I ever had to buy a truck, I would buy the cybertruck. But I would only buy a truck if I ran a construction business. If you compare CT with the common jacked up dumb ****************** trucks that so many people have, the Tesla at least has features that are desirable, like acceleration, ability to power tools, a ramp. Imagine moving a couch and your truck crouches for you to walk it up... Common trucks are just so dumb. The fact that people are scoffing at CT is just hilarious.
