I took a trip from Santa Ana Ca to June Lake the day after I took delivery last week. As expected, the trip took longer due to the two charging stops, but surprisingly, it did not feel longer than it would have when we usually took our Model X. In total, it took eight hours, and my family of five had zero complaints about it being uncomfortable.

We had plenty of room to spare after loading our skis and snowboards and everything needed for a week's stay. A family member of ours took his new Toyota 4-runner with a lift and had issues sliding down the steep driveway of the cabin. The Cybertruck had zero problems with it. driving through the snow this thing felt rock solid.

I’ve owned a ‘22 RAM Laramie and a ‘05 Silverado that I still have. I can say I am thrilled with this Cybertruck, and it has been well worth the wait; love it or hate it, there were small crowds around us at every stop. I’m thinking of putting together a diary of all the funny comments I get along the way. To all those still waiting, be steadfast, and don’t lose hope!

Thanks for sharing your first drive with us. We too have a Model X that I have driven over 102K miles between the Pasadena, CA area and Mammoth Lakes. Now I know what to expect when we drive our Cyber Beast from the Marina del Rey delivery center to Mammoth Lakes.

Did you trade your Model X for your new CyberTruck? If so, can I assume that you believe you got a fair value for it? Thanks again! Gregg

Great combo! My wife drives our Y And as much as I would love to keep the X I can’t justify it. I am trying to decide whether to trade or sell the X. If you have any thoughts on trading with Tesla or selling to someone else please feel free to share them. Thanks again.

In the past, I’ve opted to see what my trade-ins would be with Tesla, and they would come back with offers that weren’t necessarily the most competitive; then again, my trade-ins were not Teslas. Put in your info, give it a shot and see what they come back with, that would be my recommendation.

good recommendation. I’ll report my decision in the post to the Forum reporting on my drive to the Sierra. As near as I can tell, my VIN is still a month, maybe two months away.

In early 2018, when my wife and i took delivery of our first Model 3, people would ask me who made it. When I told them "Tesla" a couple of them still insisted I told them which automaker it's from, and what country it was made. A few people couldn't fathom the fact there was an automaker named "Tesla" or that it was an American car.

With the Cybertruck, I suggest owners just tell people like that it's imported from Mars at great expense, and worth all the interplanetary import fees and taxes. If they look dumbfounded, you can add that it's considered an American automaker because the factory is located on the part of the planet that is American territory, according to the 2022 Interplanetary Treaty.

If they still look like they are trying to figure out whether you are telling them the truth, you can add that's why you had to wait 5 years for delivery.

I've been wondering about this. I live atop a hill and have to drive down on steep snowy/icy roads all winter long. Weight = traction when the road is flat. But on a steep hill, the weight works against you. My fear is that the CT will be more prone to sliding while heading down hill, and more prone to losing momentum while heading uphill. Sounds like you didn't have any issues.

These things are tire-dependent more than anything. But still, it's encouraging to hear your experience.
