    Hummer broke down

    I could see a new driver reacting that way but an adult? An adult who deals with cars for a living? It was drama, but I didn’t even think it was good drama. I think I may have sprained my eye-rolling muscles.

    Hummer broke down

    You’re welcome. It was discussed here when it was first released for the R1T but I haven’t seen much chatter about it since. I don’t have my Rivian yet so they may already include a printed copy with delivered vehicles. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I figured I may as well include the link just in case someone...

    Benz EQS SUV - 7 seater

    Congratulations! Styling is subjective but I think that is a beautiful vehicle: inside and out. I bet Mercedes is going to sell a lot of them.

    Hummer broke down

    Given the number of inaccuracies I’ve heard in videos on that channel in particular and most channels in general, I wouldn‘t count on it. Influencers and content creators aren’t journalists.

    Hummer broke down

    People tend to notice the presence of indicator lights rather than the absence of them. Probably best to have a green ready to move symbol when good to go and a red ready to move with a line through it or x over it symbol when you can’t move.

    Hummer broke down

    Here are 3 of my take-aways from this video: 1. Always have a road flare, warning triangle, etc. in case your car breaks down in a high traffic area. Any car powered by anything. 2. Manufacturers should include printed instructions for common roadside breakdown issues: flat tire, dead vehicle...

    Unresponsive Customer Service?

    Could it be that decision makers at Rivian aren’t aware of the fact that they apparently have the entire output from their tire supplier in the U.S.? Maybe they went to buy more for service issues and were told by Pirelli that the 22” cupboard is bare. Assuming that Pirelli is also in the...

    Unresponsive Customer Service?

    Is Pirelli unable to deliver more of those tires to the U.S. than Rivian buys for manufacturing? The fact that NOBODY has them in stock makes me think this isn’t a Rivian problem as much as it is a Pirelli problem.

    Sorry, that sucks!

    Unresponsive Customer Service?

    @Cary Hawk I forgot to write: on a positive note at least if you buy a full-size spare for your R1T you have a place dedicated to storing it. I’m envious of that! Please keep us posted since I don’t think people expected the 22” or 20” factory tires to be so scarce. I hope you’re back on the...

    Unresponsive Customer Service?

    Thanks for the detail! It sounds like CS doesn’t know what to do with this. Have you tried submitting a ticket for service via the app? Since you need a part (tire) and service supplies parts (I think) then this might get you some action. Alternatively, a smaller local tire shop may be able to...

    Unresponsive Customer Service?

    @Cary Hawk , which tires do you have? Do you not have a spare because you ordered one and haven’t received it yet or because you didn’t order one? I don’t have my Rivian yet but unless you have the 21” (hard to find) tire size what is your expectation of Rivian if you have a sidewall puncture...

    Getting phones to stay put on charging pad?

    @RWerksman has a solution which keeps the stock look but replaces the under-mat electronics https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/threads/working-magsafe-magnetic-qi-wireless-charging-pad-install-diy-writeup.6404/post-211212

    Powered 40 qt Frunk Cooler and 12 gal Water Tank w/washdown sprayer

    @BoxGods, we don’t NEED one of these but the design and apparent quality sure make me want one! Really outstanding work from what I saw in the pics. We’re probably 6 to 9 months from delivery of our R1S, but if we do need a fridge/freezer I will buy to support you and your work. I could see this...

    Where is my R1T

    Not being able to select configuration yet sounds right to me given your reservation timing around 5 months ago. Rivian changed their reservation process around spring to let people reserve but not configure. I think this was done to keep expectations more realistic given the longer lead times...

    Lightning review references R1T

    Actually, your gloves on example is a perfect example of a differentiator between the two. With so many hard buttons, the Lightning seems to be delivering what is needed by someone who spends a lot of time wearing work gloves. Rivian is delivering what I consider to be a more modern experience...

    Lightning review references R1T

    The reviewers seem to be comparing plusses and minuses more from the perspective of work trucks. I’ve always considered them very different in their target audience. I see the Lightning as a truck for truck buyers who want some advantages of an EV and the Rivian as an EV for EV buyers who want...

    Got My R1S Back After PPF

    No, but hopefully I’ll have an update by the end of the month. I reserved in April of 2021 and I live close to the Costa Mesa SC so hopefully they can stick to my current 1st half of 2023 window. How about you?

    Got My R1S Back After PPF

    Thanks for the information on the PPF and for sharing pics of your beautiful Forest Green R1S.

    Rivian updates website: Two 12v outlets now (none in frunk) for R1T

    Nobody actually paid for them as far as I know. They may have been included all along for LEs but I don’t know because that’s not me. But they were things which Rivian was planning to charge for in the Adventure package. I know the hose and accessory kit was an extra cost (around $60 to $75)...
