Just googled it. Absolutely insane the amount of power they can push with those chargers.

to me its the cable. water cooling makes such a difference. i wonder how much the cable could handle with active glycol cooling like a bar tap.

They're too stuck in their old ways of yearly releases tbh. It's been that way for way too long for the traditional manufacturers to give that up. Even if Tesla and Rivian are stirring things up it's not enough market share for them to feel forced to follow suit. Im not sure I've seen a single OTA for the MachE since we got it. But then again I'm sure I went a couple of months without one for the model 3.

All in all, I will say I do like my wife's car. It's a solid competitor. Ford just has some work to do.
I've gotten a few updates in the past year with blue cruise being the big one. Supposed to be a huge UI change later this year. Whole thing is being revamped.

Carmax is usually the best, also, Tesla will not actually pay you that much. They always quote high and then low-ball when the day comes, reportedly.

i know its changed by i smoked a turkey with my trade in and super glued the trim roughly in the right place. i took the plates off myself for the tesla trade in woman. she was thankful i knew to do that. not as thankful as me that she didnt even look at the front end of the tahoe.

Wonder how much more pain I’ll be getting not just keeping it all with the same company.

Ordered another and said I wanted to trade in, pay some and finance some. Might be easier to coordinate this stuff with the same company if I can just drop it off when I finally pick up new one.

You all know the horror stories of planning a tesla delivery.

what are you getting next?

Just did a carvana quote. $54k for 2020 MYP with 38k miles. Pretty sure I paid like $62k back in March 2020. Not bad.
