    I Dub Thee REX

    I propose that "R3X" be pronounced "rex" (as in king, ruler, etc.) not "r-three-x" (which is lame 70s-era space movie lingo). The Rivian R3X is the bad-a$$ed undisputed king of the hot hatch world. It is a tri-motor super hatch deserving of the title REX. What say you Rivian enthusiasts?

    Alexa Map Integration Issues

    Why is the Rivian version of Alexa is so stupid when it comes to navigation? The map itself is very good at recognizing and finding locations but the voice command Alexa is a complete idiot. "Navigate to Kroger on ____ Dr. in Houston" Alexa: Okay there is a Kroger in ____ Ohio, do you want that...

    Need Advice: Road Trip Take Rivian or Tesla?

    Looking for some honest advice from more experienced Rivian owners: I need to do a 1,200 mile road trip this week (Houston to NW Arkansas round trip). My R1S has 600 miles on it and no issues, but between the endless stories about horrible charging networks and what appears to be (from reading...

    Groaning When Kneeling

    I am hearing a groaning sound whenever the R1S kneels (which makes me feel like a kindred spirit because there is also a groaning sound when I kneel but I am old and the RIS is new so…) is this typical? It is not super loud but is sounds like a creaking door.

    Rivian Needs a No Re-Sale Clause Now

    So Rivian has done the right thing and reinstated the pre-order pricing for all of us that had an order on March 1. It now needs to add a one-year no resale clause in the sales contract to prevent people grandfathered into the old pricing from taking advantage of their discount to profit from...
