    Possible lemon.. need help

    We bought our R1S in Sept 2023. Absolutely love the vehicle, best car we’ve had. But my god we’ve had so many issues with it. In the last 7 months of ownership, we’ve had to take it to the service center 8 or 9 times. Multiple times for wind noise, steering wheel clicking noise, alignment...

    My R1T purchased from Shop with powered tonneau cover was delivered without the cover

    I just took delivery of a dual motor, standard+ range with a powered tonneau cover. Except… the powered tonneau cover wasn’t on the truck. I had to show the service center that the truck I bought had a powered tonneau cover. So they said put in a ticket and whenever they get them in stock, they...

    2024 Tax Credit

    I'm about to pick up my R1T next weekend. My guide said that I would qualify for the $3750 tax credit (vehicle is under 80k). But Rivian would do a point of purchase credit.

    EV Tax Credit

    So Rivian has stated that the R2 will qualify for the full 7500 tax credit (point of purchase credit). This means the battery will come from either USA or a country that is in good standing with USA. So my question is, if this is the case, why can't they use that battery on the R1, and that...

    So as most know, Rivian introduced the Standard pack and Standard+. I spoke to Rivian who said currently the Standard and Standard+ both use the same battery chemistry as the Large and Max pack. But they will switch to LFP later in the summer for Standard Packs. I'm not sure which is better...

    Corte Madera RAN

    Anyone been to this RAN lately? It still shows on the app as free charging.. but wasn't sure if that was an error or not. Curious why this one would still be free and not the others.. (hoping they keep it free.. love to go Muir Woods on a day trip, and charging here for free would be amazing)

    R1S -- Dual, Performance or Quad Motor

    Hi All, I pre-ordered the R1S in March 2022 (missed the price lock by 20 days). I had originally ordered the dual motor. Now that it's out, at least on Rivian's config page, it states as 340 miles on 21s. I saw the EPA is 352 on 21s. For me, the Performance is a 5k upgrade, whereas the Quad...
