    Torch / Flashlight: Notification if missing?

    For those who already have their R1, I was wondering: Does the vehicle notify you that the flashlight is missing from the driver’s door when you get into the car or take it out of Park? I’m asking because Rivian has the ability to lock the camp speaker in place, but as far as I know the...

    Parking Brake Manual Override?

    I looked through the current version of the owner’s guide and I couldn’t find anything. Is there a manual parking brake release or override? I’m looking for something (typically hidden) which you have to manually move to release the electric parking brake if it fails. Our Land Rover has a steel...

    Question for people who know manufacturing

    I’m just an IT guy who likes to improve systems which interact with people and I know a little about cars, except for vehicle production about which I know effectively zero. Right now I see a LOT of people getting frustrated because they haven’t had so much as a guide contact and they are...

    Air Suspension Auto-Adjust Quirks

    I saw this in another thread and figured I should start a new thread in the Tires, Wheels, Suspension, Brakes area rather than go off-topic. Auto-adjust at stop lights under the right circumstances may be intentional. Our Land Rover will do this and it was a little unsettling until I figured...

    How many Rivians have you seen at once?

    Outside of a Rivian facility, Rivian event, or Rivian owner gathering, how many Rivians have you seen just driving around? We were heading to dinner this evening and as we approached a traffic light I said, “Ooh, a Rivian!” after seeing an R1T in Rivian blue on the opposite side of the...

    R1S Deliveries?

    Given the volume of messages on this site I could‘ve missed something even after searching so forgive me if this has been discussed. I know that so far two Rivian executives each received an R1S. Have any other R1S deliveries taken place? Is Rivian delivering early examples to regular...

    Power vents on dash possibility?

    I did some searching on the forum and the R1T manual but couldn’t find anything about this. The power controlled HVAC vents on the dash always struck me as overkill... :idea: Unless they’re tied to the driver profile. Does anyone know if this is the case? This is not mentioned in the...

    Rivian Improvements Over Your Current Vehicle?

    I don’t think I’m alone in thinking more and more frequently, “I can’t wait until I get my Rivian so I <don’t have to deal with some issue any more / gain some feature>!” Since all of the recent reviews and videos were released, this has been popping into my mind a lot more. As just one...

    Rodents and soy-based wire insulation

    Chewing critters are apparently very fond of the soy-based wire insulation which is increasingly used as a green alternative to petrochemical wire insulation. Since many Rivian owners will be camping in or with their vehicles that means they will be parked for extended periods in nature. Is...

    Tesla Fans

    I think this is the right place for this, but I’m hoping the site administrator will move to a different area if not. There seem to be some posters here who truly believe in the superiority of Tesla over Rivian and they seem intent on… something. I just don’t understand what their desire is. Do...
