Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

Thank you guys for the info! Has anyone had good luck finding reasonably priced insurance? I've been a Geico member for 20 years with no accidents/points and buying a Tesla jacks up my rate quite a bit. I get it, new car but it's like an extra $500 every 6 months!

I was with AAA before, and they were going to Jack up my rate by $500 for 6 months. If you have another car on your policy, go Progressive with both. If the Tesla is your only car, check out Tesla's own insurance (not sure if they offer it outside of Cali though).

When it comes it insurance, best to call around. Takes little time to get a quote.

It’s ironic that they mention range anxiety in the ad because I would certainly have range anxiety if I had a Lexus right now.

There’s almost 2 million Lexus and Toyota’s included in a fuel pump recall that currently has no fix. A family member has already been left on the side of the road once, and the car is still acting up.

I'm guessing that recall is going to expand. There's a well known issue with the last gen scion Xb having a dashboard of lights come up, then suddenly go away.. or sometimes the car just doesn't start. My wife's started doing that at 180k miles, went away, and we dumped it at a dealership before it came back.

Had a model S as a loaner for the past week. Not sure i can go back to my Ram. This thing is stupid fast and just awesome. How does the 3 stack up against the S? Other than size?

How does one go about getting a Model S as a loaner car?

#3161 73 days ago

My company loaned one to me for a week and part of a bonus. Id rather have the cash honestly. Bescause now I'm looking at spending 70k on a used X or S. Instead of a bonus its now costing me money.

#3162 73 days ago

Turo is a great way to try one out for a few days. We rented an X and had a lot of fun with it.

The owner showed us the Christmas show as we picked it up (not our video)

The 3 is SO fun to drive. I have an S (p100d) and my wife has the most basic 3 out. Hers is almost as fun to drive!!

Hope this isn’t a party foul but if anyone wants to use my code for 1000 miles of supercharging, I’d appreciate it if you don’t already have one.

No foul. I'm gonna buy one soon and I'll be sure to use this!

I’m really starting the think I love the Y based on the early videos. Can’t wait to see who is first to transport a pinball machine in one.

Agreed. Need to see Pin-friendly dimensions of the Y. That "may" sway me to ditch my 3 and a RAV4 I've kept just for pinhauling. A Y performance would be a great holdover until the Cybertruck gets released.

#3167 67 days ago

I am scheduled to pick up my Y on Saturday in Maryland. Cross your fingers it all goes smooth for me! I'll post pictures, etc. once it is in hand.

WE have 2 model 3s switched to Farmers Ins very good pricing $1,000 for 6mo. for both cars.

that's not horrible ($500 per car for 6 months). Is insurance dropping because service is getting better?

Please share cargo area dimensions and/or pinhauling pics when you can. I’ll upgrade my Model 3 (and ditch my current RAV 4 pinhauler) if pins fit in the Y.

#3171 43 days ago

I got the dimensions, and unfortunately it doesn’t look like a pin will fit completely with hatch closed on a Model Y.

The depth is plenty fine (about 75”), but the head does seem like it will clear the height. With most pins being about 29-30” height, folded. Maybe with the tailgate left open it’ll work. It’s a long shot, but maybe you could pull the two floor panels and rig temporary shallow flooring.

Interior measurements:
B = 70 cm or 27.6 inches
A = 54 cm or 21.3 inches

what's the height dead center of the opening ? , and then 14 inches each way , what is that height ?

Good point. It does arc a bit. I got this from a third party. There might be a chance a pin will JUST make it.

#3174 43 days ago

also is the floor boards removable , may be able to get something that is thinner , therefore gain a little more vertical space

Yes ... I mentioned that above. They are removable... just not sure if a substitute floor will be workable.

get these numbers

#3177 42 days ago

Guys, just rent a trailer or buy a cheap hauler. Tesla makes great vehicles....don’t let your purchase be dictated on whether it fits a pin or not. If you can afford to buy a Tesla, you can figure out other options. I have a model 3 and a pickup. I kept the pickup for hauling big items. Cheers.

#3178 42 days ago

Wait for the Cybertruck! It will haul a pin no problem!

ended up buying the 2020 model 3 long range for my wife and now I want one. Thing is stupid fast and I’m even thinking about paying the 2k fee for the software update to increase the 0-60 speed increase. Just not sure if I want to drop that much just for .7 seconds increase in acceleration..

If you don't, you'll always wonder....

#3182 32 days ago

Don’t do it. Because then when you buy yourself one, it will be a P. Careful.

I say do it! In the ice world, $2000 for .7 increase in acceleration is the deal of the century. No one ever complains that their car is too fast. Also, buy good summer tires when your existing all seasons are done. Good grippy tires make a huge difference. And yes, it’s very easy to spend someone else’s money......

Cheers
