    Tesla to open “Dealership” in Asheville NC

    I’m curious how the powerful dealers lobby ever allowed this grandfathered law.

    Tesla to open “Dealership” in Asheville NC

    Perhaps located on the Cherokee nation not far from Asheville?

    So I have access to the R1S Shop... ordered & configuration confirmed

    Rivian frequents online forums. This isn’t a private conversation.

    R1S : Oct-Dec Delivery (Now Jan-Feb or Feb-Mar 2023)

    My experience is if it’s in stock it ships in about a week after placing the order, plus transit time to your address.

    R1S : Oct-Dec Delivery (Now Jan-Feb or Feb-Mar 2023)

    Congrats on your new S. Looks great! I just received my crossbars a week after ordering them. It’s odd to take three weeks for an in-stock item. What do you mean about receiving a “quote” that included delivery estimate?

    Half Shaft / CV Joint Noise

    My R1S was already there for other reasons. When they went to inspect my noise complaints they discovered the drive unit failure. Only 800 miles and no off road. I’ve kept the suspension in all purpose other than trying out the “off road” setting a couple times while stationary in the driveway.

    Half Shaft / CV Joint Noise

    I'm in the same boat with the rear drive unit failure and in the same 400s VIN range.

    R1S Off-Road Review by Owner: Exceptional

    Agreed on the need for a full spare when going off pavement. Loading one inside could be tricky with the weight getting it in/out. Then there’s the issue of the muddy flat going back inside. The other option is to put it up top on a rack. Getting it up/down is probably a 2 person operation with...

    R1S Off-Road Review by Owner: Exceptional

    Helpful write-up thanks tor sharing your experiences. What are your thoughts on back country tire anxiety (read: flat). The compact spare isn’t too inspiring. I’ll get one when they are made available (c’mon Rivian!). But I’m more concerned with stability of changing the tire with the OEM...

    Recent R1S builds has only 2 Tie Downs?

    There’s no official way to buy tie downs, spare tires, key fobs, etc. Try going thru the SC or your guide to ask. The consistent response is “watch for it in the gear shop soon”. Your mileage may vary.

    R1S big butt - is it an issue for owners

    It’s part of the R1S design ethos. Why duplicate the saturated teardrop design that eeks out a bit more efficiency at the expense of capacity? No worse on visibility and there are cameras and radar to assist with drivability. I would say there’s more visibility compared to many sloping roof...

    Check your seat bolts (missing in my R1T)

    Some things just need to remain a mystery.

    All Weather Floor Mats from R1T fit in the R1S?

    Fronts are identical for both T snd S. Note the OEM mats aren’t sold with just fronts. You have to buy the full set.

    All Weather Floor Mats from R1T fit in the R1S?

    OEM fronts yes. Rear no. Husky sells the fronts separately but fitment in the passenger well results in a crease or bowing in on the side. I have them and kept them for lack of a better choice

    Interior peeling

    Fancy plastic otherwise known as vinyl. Nice enough to hold stitching, with a top protective coat.

    Show Us Your Rivian Decked Out For the Holidays

    We only had room for a baby tree this year. But it got me wondering, who’s hauling their holiday decorations with their Rivian? Post your photos of trees, lights, menorahs, festivus poles.

    Cv shafts keep popping out

    While it’s still too early to call this a success, I’m glad to read the fix is still in a working state. There are seemingly lots of reports on the “tock”. The loaner I currently have has the same symptom. But collectively how many actual failures have been reported and can they be tied back...

    Vegan Leather VS Animal Hide Leather

    Vegan leather virtue signals environmental consciousness. Vinyl is made from oil by the application of heat and pressure (more energy use). Neither are sustainable choices.
