  1. PlugShare?

    I use ABRP to figure out the number of charging stops, but as others have noted, its not up to date, so you see may not see all EA stations. i recently drove from Broward County to Atlanta and used EA primarily, all the way to ATL, with the exception of one FPL charging station in central...
  2. Why Rivian is far better than Tesla... and I hate Tesla

    Let me say this. I love Tesla the car. I am on my second Tesla, a 22 MY. But I am also a black man, with two LBGTQ kids. Me and my family, and the millions of people like me are more than 10% who are trolled mercilessly by Elon on twitter and more than the 10% who are rationally angry for...

  5. Service Center Visit Expectations For Sitting and/or Driving an R1T?

    And why are the SC’s not directly accessible by phone? Smh. I get they don’t want the added expense of a receptionis at each SC, but its 2021, they can route the calls to multiple people at the SC and designate a couple of people to answer at any give time….geez. Thats not so hard to do. I hope...
  6. Service Center Visit Expectations For Sitting and/or Driving an R1T?

    Good luck! I have been there twice for service. There is no door bell and they keep the door locked You have to go the left side of the building and bang on the glass window to get someone’s attention. It’s a beautiful shop though. The floors and lifts are spotless and there is a nice lounge...
  7. Looking for home solar advice

    As others have noted, get multiple quotes., and if possible go local. Local companies are familiar with the local permitting process, so your install will go a lot smoother. I went with Tesla about 18 months ago, because they were the cheapest of several quotes I got. Tesla was a nighmare. ’i...
  8. Tire Rotation and Balance

    Good luck! I just dropped mine off this morning to the Miami Service center for a second attempt at a balancing and tire rotation… I just got a new tire for my Tesla at Discount Tire yesterday, I think they would be a good candidate for a Rivian partnership.

  16. We are way too obsessed with range

    As others have noted, I am only obsessed with range on long trips if I have to depend on EA charging. With the Tesla SC network and destination charging,. range anxiety is minimal. And yes, I agree, drive as fast as you can, and enjoy your vehicle without babying it. Life is short, and you...
