    Driver +.. Deal Breaker ?

    There are two problems I see that would need to be fixed. One, our driving tests have a woefully low bar. So it's easy for idiots to get behind the wheel. We need to raise the standard of those tests. Two, we have people on the road who were tested with road rules from decades ago and are...

    Anybody want to sell their reservation for the launch edition?

    By the time deliveries roll around, he might just hold on to your BTC and send you the cash depending on its value 😅

    Anybody want to sell their reservation for the launch edition?

    I’m just quoting someone’s post, just like you did mine, and responding. I don’t understand what your question is. If you sign such an agreement, who places the order? Who is allowed to contact the Rivian guide? Who gets the email updates and delivery windows? Who is actually contractually...

    Anybody want to sell their reservation for the launch edition?

    It took me less time to find the answer on google than it probably took you to post this:

    Anybody want to sell their reservation for the launch edition?

    That might be a little intense :D. If forum members feel strongly about the subject, then maybe we get the mods to add a 'sticky' thread in the ordering section outlining Rivian's stance on reservation transfers, and stating that any such posts from new members will be unwelcome.

    Official Rivian Insurance Info Announced!

    Yea it's weird, I also think it can vary from vehicle to vehicle. I had a Mini Cooper before this and it would go weeks with no issue. The Lexus however, I'm lucky if it lasts over 10 days. Through a lot of trial and error, and the process of elimination, we established it was the fob. Metromile...

    Q&A session with a Rivian Guide

    Thanks, for some reason I thought the front lip would still flip, and I was like "isn't that the same as under-seat??" lol. This makes more sense. You're right that captains seats are likely a post-LE option, it might be too late to retool the production line at this stage. Plus they could...

    Q&A session with a Rivian Guide

    I'm having trouble visualizing the "front lip of the rear seat cushions". What is that? (also sorry for the image, Chrome does not want to copy text from the PDF for some reason). Edit: also interesting to note that "captain seats are under review". Hopefully for Launch Editions? Not a deal...

    Official Rivian Insurance Info Announced!

    Oh interesting, I didn't know these existed - thanks for the tip. I coincidentally ended up purchasing a battery jump start kit, and looks like the same companies (e.g. Noco on Amazon) make battery maintainers too. Very similar looking devices.

    Official Rivian Insurance Info Announced!

    Me too, I currently have Metromile and it's great especially during the pandemic when there is very little daily driving. However my Lexus battery has drained completely a handful of times because of the stupid fob, and I've been told by both Lexus and Metromile to drive more frequently to...

    Official Rivian Insurance Info Announced!

    This is actually quite a fascinating question. If they rely on all their telemetrics to come up with your monthly charge, then they should in theory not charge you for using one of the vehicle's features (i.e. 0-60 in 3 or tank turn) in the appropriate environments. Or are they smart enough to...

    Chase Auto Financing Rates now available for 2022 Rivian

    You're right, I got the same 2.99% and 3.04% when I changed the vehicle to Acura. I suppose the actual Rivian Financial rate will be lower.

    Chase Auto Financing Rates now available for 2022 Rivian

    I'm not super familiar with how the dedicated programs work - my assumption was that if there is an agreement between manufacturer and bank, then it shouldn't matter which of those websites you access the deal from, you should get the same rate. Not accurate?

    Chase Auto Financing Rates now available for 2022 Rivian

    Not bad! I imagine a Rivian announcement is coming ... soon :D. Are you a chase banking customer? I have a couple of their credit cards but nothing on the banking side.

    CNBC piece on Battery Recycling

    I'm really liking these CNBC pieces on youtube. This was an interesting one, as was their take on the battery shortage (with some of the same "actors"):

    How long is "longer range" R1S - any intel?

    Sure, but with those myriad factors equal, a 180kwh pack will still equate to ~33% more range than the 135kwh pack. I personally won't need the extra range but I can see why others might choose to wait.

    Potential EV Incentives

    That's a nice little loophole. I wonder what the thinking was behind setting it to base MSRP. Here in WA it's sales tax exemption for the first $25k of the vehicle cost (amounts to roughly $1.6k), but the total vehicle cost cannot exceed $45k. So if you wanted a long range Model 3 at $46k...

    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    D’oh! This is why we need remote parking assist. I’m hoping Rivian surprises us with that feature before the end of the year. Far less premium vehicles like Hyundai Tucson and vw Tiguan have a remote parking feature.

    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    It’s probably the same. Is your other vehicle a sedan? Wonder if the mirrors on the Rivians might be tall enough to be a non-factor in width for you depending on how low your other ride is. But I hear you on the tight garage space, I have a whole thread on my situation here 😆.
