    Would you create a ticket?

    Truck was delivered 12/22 Months after I took delivery, I noticed the rear spoiler/ trim area was slightly elevated in relation to the top glass. I don't check this often. I don't really have a reason to check this often. I waxed the truck this weekend, and noticed that it looks worse than I...

    No Available Appointments at Costa Mesa Service Center?

    Just tried to schedule an appointment for my noisy front half shafts (they've been like this for a while now but deciding to do something about it). Also, I have a weird issue with my front suspension going to max height randomly on the first stop after coming out of kneel mode. Tried to...

    Just reserved a Volvo EX30 for the wife

    Not trying to persuade anyone from dropping any R1 reservations. At first I thought we were going to hold out for an R2 for the wife (who knows, maybe we will someday), but this thing looks too good to be true! The price is excellent. https://www.volvocars.com/us/cars/EX30-electric/ I figure...

    Nationwide (Rivian Insurance): Changing Back to State Farm PSA

    The sentiment towards Nationwide (Rivian Insurance) on these forums has been fairly positive, so I decided to give it a go given all the good press and OEM replacement parts. To make any insurance company work, I have to bundle my house and umbrella policy with the same insurer. The market...

    [Vote in poll] Turned off LKA (lane keep assist) today, and you should too!

    So you might have read my posts about LKA in my specific situation. Well, today I turned it off and let me tell you: it made my driving experience so much nicer this morning. If you have LKA binging and bonging you around and seemingly not understanding where the lanes are, turn it off! Both...

    Incredible service experience Costa Mesa CA

    On forums like these we often have a bit of hive mind when it comes to being critical around a company we care quite a bit about. Myself included. However, when you have a phenomenal experience its just as important that we share those. So here we go- I had service scheduled at the Costa Mesa...

    Powered running boards from AMP - Incoming?

    I sent AMP Research a feeler email as they are one of the big producers of aftermarket powered running boards. I would love to have powered running boards on the truck, and they are about 15 minutes away from me so I wanted to contact them in case they needed anything to get this part going...

    Q for owners of 22" dark wheels -- any issues with the wheel on the spare getting scratched if it is facing down in the spare wheel well?

    Dropped my 21" wheels off at the powdercoat guy, and he was a bit concerned about the spare getting scratched up. I'm guessing that mostly tire hits the area where the spare fits and that the wheel is unscathed. Anybody out there with 22" dark wheels have any issues with the wheel on the...

    Ocean Coast Interior's NEW Speaker Covers in Brushed Nickel / Aluminum

    Hadn't really seen this posted on the forums. Not sure if this is something that has been around for a while or is much newer. My delivery agent said my truck was the first he has seen with these speaker covers. Also- I TOOK DELIVERY YESTERDAY! Not going to write a full write up- there...

    Rivian Owners and Preorder Holders- Strange Entitlement?

    Not trying to start world war 3 on the forums here, but as I was driving in on my way to work today (in my 16 vw gti) I was reminded of a few recent posts that just contained an odd sense of entitlement. I was behind a newer model S, and was comparing the two in my head: Rivian (Pre march...
