    Check your Dashcam drive to make sure it's recording properly

    I received my Cybertruck on February 1, but never really checked the functionality of the USB drive. I assumed it was working after the screen indicated it was recording, but on the settings main screen it said "Not recording". Another CT driver was in an accident, and when he went to review...

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    They didn't contact me, I made the service appointment about it. At this time, I think it was just rail dust.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    You can use the touchless car wash, but it won't remove the spots. Remove the spots with the BKF, and then wash your car as normal.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    I really think it was just an oversight in the delivery process. CT's were delivered in TX in December and January, but the spots story never appeared until it was vehicles shipped to California or other states. I think the delivery should have included cleaning off rail dust from an unpainted...

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    I'll be honest: I think Tesla is selling and delivering these cars before they were prepared for it. I do think it's rail dust or outside contaminants, I just don't think Tesla told the delivery centers how to properly clean the CT before delivery. Tesla always does a wash and detail before...

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    I have a service appointment early March to address this, I have a feeling they're just going to use an equivalent of Barkeeper's Friend to remove the spots and then go over the surface with high grit sander or something? Should it be present in a vehicle at delivery? No. Did it stop me from...

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    I definitely will. I want to see what Tesla intends as their "final fix" before I try the ProtectaClear. However, the BKF "Soft" (liquid), then water, then Windex cleaned it up really well.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    Chemical Guys Iron Decon spray was applied and left to work. No purple residue or anything indicating any remaining contamination was present. Wonder if Tesla is aware of how to clean their own CT when it arrives at a service center for delivery. Barkeeper's Friend to clean it off, water to...

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    I'm about to go try Chemical Guys Iron Decon spray where I cleaned already, to see if it pulls additional corrosion that I can't see.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    Cleaned it off with denatured alcohol, looks great now that it's dried out a bit. I'll keep an eye on it overnight.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    Iron Decon didn't work as quickly, but the BKF took the contaminants right off. I did a whole panel just to illustrate. Attached are before and after pics (I tested on a small part on the other side, worked well, so I went for the whole panel on the other side of the car). Pardon the streaks.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    I don't want to do too much that makes Tesla hesitant to service the vehicle, especially with a service appointment scheduled and their "plan" ready to go.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    Interesting! I don't know much about metal and corrosion, thank you for that info!

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    That doesn't seem like a long term solution for Tesla: every 11 days, advise owner to sand down exterior? I have to believe there's a finish that they're going to be compelled to apply, but right now it seems like they have a plan.

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    That's fine, I think owners should have the opportunity to choose the aesthetics of their car within the confines of what they deliver (body shape).

    Cybertruck spots/corrosion

    EDIT: Since this post is getting traction from news outlets, I'd like to up front state my finding. I do not believe this is embedded corrosion of the panels, but rather spots from an outside contaminant adhering to the exterior. The spots cannot be removed with soap and water, so the Tesla...

    Rust Spots/Corrosion is the Norm

    I definitely will. While I do like how the patina and softness is already starting to show, I really want shiny and bold.

    How long until Autopilot activated ....Let's Vote

    I think when the rear-steering changes are made (from 6 degrees of freedom to 20 degrees of freedom), they'll release AP and FSD. The steer-by-wire is already something to translate into the steering, and changing the turning radius and overall dynamics will drastically impact FSD (I think). So...
