    R1S AIR conditioner -- loud deep humming sound ?

    Ours doesn‘t seem unreasonably loud unless we’re using a DCFC station in the desert during the summer, but it’s great that Rivian is responding to feedback and doing something to address this. However, no matter what they’ve done with the retool/refresh, the people who are experiencing their...

    R1S middle row seat removal easier than expected and wow what a difference.

    I saw that you removed the third row and I was wondering if you had any pics or tips for removing the 3rd row seat bottom. We were on a bumpy road and my friend’s son dropped his Nintendo Switch controllers which fell into the opening for the 3rd row seat belt buckles. This area appears to lead...

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    I think signage at the SuperChargers could go a long way towards helping people understand how to use the spots most efficiently. Concisely showing / describing vehicles with right charge ports (when facing the pedestal) starting to fill from the left and not leaving gaps with left charge port...

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    I try to be reasonable and considerate. I expect other people to be reasonable but I am not surprised if they aren’t. I don’t necessarily expect other people to be considerate and I consider it an added bonus when they are. Even a reasonable and considerate person may have to leave their...

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    I think it’s important for people to understand that what they see in the moment may not reflect the circumstances before they arrived. For example, if a Rivian which is not towing anything is charging at a pull-through spot and there are plenty of regular charging spots available it is easy to...

    BEWARE - EVGo at Pilot Flying J - ripoff pricing

    If so, this pricing strategy seems to undermine that. I imagine that people are more likely to spend as little time and money as possible if they think the location is overcharging them. I could see people being annoyed enough that they charge just enough to get to another station with better...

    My Luck Finally Ran Out, But The Denver Service Center Is THE Best!

    While none of us want to have a major component malfunction, it’s great to read that this was handled as quickly as it was! I’m hopeful that the retooling will help with initial quality so the service centers aren’t struggling with relatively minor yet time-consuming post-delivery issues.

    Headliner speakers in R1S only work with 3D audio

    Thank you very much for helping me, and possibly others, with this information! I was wondering if the center speaker was worth the vibrating dashboard on rough roads given the speaker’s weight attached to the poorly-supported speaker grill assembly. It seems like it is actually improving the...

    Worth the wait for R1 refresh?

    I’m sorry to see that you lost your Model 3, @Boring Boy , and I hope nobody got injured in the crash. There is a lot of speculation, but the official word from Rivian is that the shutdown was for a retooling to increase efficiency and reduce production costs. It seems like there may be some...

    Headliner speakers in R1S only work with 3D audio

    First, thank you for the detailed explanation and the helpful information regarding the equalizer settings. Since you’ve probably forgotten more about audio systems than I’ve ever known, I have a question which I don’t recall reading about. If I missed this somewhere else please accept my...

    Best view yet of Underbody Shield (R1 rollover)

    Exactly what I was thinking!

    Best view yet of Underbody Shield (R1 rollover)

    It was probably being driven sedately on a field upslope from the road. /s Edit: bad copy/paste

    Not looking too good for continued operations beyond 2025

    Given that this article was written a year ago, before the R2, R3, and R3X product launches, and before the announcement that Rivian will be producing the R2 in Normal, it seems like the conditions which spurred this article no longer exist. Since the thread is based on the outdated article, I...

    R1S AIR conditioner -- loud deep humming sound ?

    I suspect that we'll see more posts like this until Rivian does something to mitigate the noise or cooler temperatures arrive with autumn... whichever comes first.

    Soft reset while driving

    This type of thing happened to us once about 5 months ago but with a difference: the driver display did not stay completely black the entire time. My recollection is that we had a no-frills display with black background showing the speed, "gear" selection, and warning/info indicators, but I may...

    Technology is great until it isn't

    We have a thorough off-road kit for adventure, too, which stays in our garage under normal circumstances. Unless GM changed something recently, I don’t see how they opened your friend‘s Hummer in a location remote enough to lack cell service. I still don‘t see how anyone could equate keeping...

    Technology is great until it isn't

    We go off-roading in the desert, high desert, or mountains where there is no cell service pretty frequently. Given that, I simply don't see how your solution helps. We bought an R1S to replace our high-mileage Land Rover so we could continue seeing cool sights in remote places. It's neither...

    Technology is great until it isn't

    Don't these solutions require access to a phone to contact another party? I completely agree with @jjswan33. It's easy to imagine that the phone is lost, damaged, out of power, and/or without cellular coverage at the current location. I think keeping the RFID card in a wallet separate from...

    Service mode (red items)

    Thanks! Even though I have never driven a DM, that doesn’t sound normal to me. To me that sounds like something other than drive motor noise. Maybe differential? I was thinking maybe something in a front wheel well was rubbing, but that would’ve changed when turning. I have 3 follow-up...

    Service mode (red items)

    Engine? It would be helpful if you record a video with audio so we can hear what you’re hearing. Our Rivians have motors powering many things on the vehicle but no engine so I think what you’re hearing is related to a specific system. A recording should help us figure out what that is.
