    Tesla Model Y To Ship In March

    Mosely Y quality/finish issues. https://electrek.co/2020/03/26/tesla-model-y-detailer-paint-defects-brand-electric-suv/amp/
  3. Stopped reading about 1/4 of the way through. We are not talking a year. We are talking 2-4 weeks is all that is needed and there is 2 months supply on hand. A month should not destroy a household and if it does, that is pour planning on their part financially.
  4. Sport mode, regulate your foot pressure on the brake are 2 more.

    2021 Hyundai Elantra Debuts online

    The sloping hood reminds me of the mustang. And now that I am looking at it, the Hyundai hood symbol should not be on the hood.. it looks terrible on it.
  6. AS/S can be disabled through forscan permanently or through a tuner or through the OBDII device that you can buy for $100. So there are options out there to disable it. Mine is disabled permanently in my 20 Explorer ST.
  7. Ordering system with trims and specs leaked.. https://www.yahoo.com/autos/2021-ford-bronco-sport-trim-222400417.html two familiar EcoBoost engines appear up for order for now: The 1.5-liter three-cylinder and 2.0-liter four-cylinder, both with auto stop/start. In the Escape SE, the former mill produces 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque, the latter, 250 hp and 280 lb-ft. The eight-speed automatic is listed as the only transmission option, all-wheel drive listed as the only drivetrain. The Bronco Sport's 105.1-inch wheelbase is 1.6 inches shorter than the Escape's, and 1.4 inches shorter than that of the Jeep Cherokee. Seems the trim walk won't be distinguished by Ford's usual lettering system, the little rig adopting the names of national parks that Ford has trademarked. The screenshot shows a base model, then Badlands, Big Bend, and Outer Banks models, as well as a First Edition trim. The paint choice dropdown box lists ten colors, the same number as offered on the sibling Escape crossover and on the body-on-frame Bronco. They are: Alto Area 51, Blue Metallic, Cactus Gray, Carbonized Gray, Cyber Orange Metallic, Iconic Silver, Kodiak Brown, Oxford White, Rapid Red Metallic, and Shadow Black. The hues can be contrasted with a black or gray roof and two choices of 17-inch wheel wearing either 225/65 all-terrain tires, or 235/65 A/T rubber. The Escape offers wheel sizes up to 19 inches. Interior coverings comprise fabric seats with Active Orange or Area 51 accents, or Ebony leather on some trims. A dropdown menu for packages reveals a Badlands Package including exterior body-colored bumpers and door handles, dual-zone climate control, remote start, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats with four-way head restraints, MyFord Touch with six-speaker audio, and a reverse sensing system. The oddball feature on the list is a "Roof Conversion - Low Opening," which no one's figured out yet. Additional individual options include items like an electrochromic inside mirror, cargo management system, engine block heater, and Class II trailer tow package. On the Escape, that tow package is rated up to 3,500 pounds, but can only be optioned on the 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

    Front and rear look good. Those creases would make me constantly question if I have a dent in the side. And that steering wheel is terrible, it looks HUGE.
  9. Completely agree and I knew exactly why he was doing it. Just goes to show how unstable Tesla is. $800+ stock price a few weeks ago, now in the $400s. They use deposits to keep their business going. As many have said, ponzi scheme pure and simple. Will be really interesting to see what happens if this goes on for 4-6 months. Nationwide quarantine will happen in the next week once they announce the stimulus package so people don't freak completely. Just like gamestop (remaining open because they claim they are essential).... only because of their survival depends on it.. F the employees health and safety.
  10. In no way shape or form is Tesla an "essential" business. So yes, it is a stupid comment. Musk should have shut down when he was told to. And why is he going till the 24? Just to build more cars!! Again, not worried about the employees, just concerned about him trying to make numbers.
  11. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/guid/2C692034-6A38-11EA-AFE6-3B7F98D26610 DETROIT — The National Transportation Safety Board says two drivers, Tesla and lax regulation of new partially automated driving systems are to blame for a fatal 2019 crash in Florida involving a Tesla on Autopilot. The NTSB, in a report issued Thursday, said the design of the Autopilot system contributed to the crash because it allowed the Tesla driver to avoid paying attention. Tesla TSLA+18.39% also failed to limit where Autopilot can be used, allowing drivers to activate it in areas it wasn’t designed for, the report said. More in the article that blames both.
  12. What kind of stupid response is this? "Today’s update reinforces the company’s goal to comply with local mandates." Your goal is to comply? Your goal? How about you always comply with mandates period. Good job Tesla looking out for your employees over your lack of profit. NOT.
  13. Have to make those 1st quarter numbers... Good old Tesla.. profits before safety.. oh wait.. profits? https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/tesla-vows-plant-workers-temperatures-115803414.html
  14. San francisco is. Yet people are completely ignoring it in San Fran which is why the media is talking about it. That's the problem!! People just don't care about others.
  15. So you think this is ok? People holding hands, running/jogging next to each other, breathing heavy, sweating? And no, quarantining is keeping you separate from everyone else.. staying home unless you have to buy some necessities. It is not going for a stroll down the coast, riding your scooter around or going for walks on a nice sunny day. STAY HOME! And let's not talk about these moron spring breakers....
