7 Life-changing Tesla Model Y Tips and Tricks

If you landed on this page, it could be because you’re interested in buying a Tesla Model Y or awaiting delivery. As one of the big purchases, we want to ensure that our car will get the necessary care. Hence, Here are some tips and tricks that might help you make the most of your purchase:

Grab a Screen Protector

Due to its simple and modern interior design, Tesla’s central control has been centralized to its monitor. This means that the screen is wide open to any smudges and fingerprint grease – which can be particularly annoying when driving at night. The good news is that it’s easy to fix this problem by taking a trip to your local electronics store and picking up a screen protector. This screen protector will prevent future fingerprints, smudges and dirt from getting onto your screen. This will also stop the glare from driving in the dark or sun rays.

Protect your floor with all-weather car mats

Tesla’s Model Y is an all-weather car that can take you from the mountains to the beach and everything in between. But no matter where you go, your flooring is always at risk, especially if you leave that out with the default tesla mat. If you want to keep your car in pristine condition, there’s nothing wrong with its original carpet. These all-weather floor mats will definitely help you maintain your vehicle.

Get Your Window Tinted

A dark window tint can make a difference for your Tesla Model Y. It will help keep your car cooler in the summer and provide an extra layer of privacy and security. Here are a few things to remember when getting your window tinted. The darkness of the tint will depend on the state you live in. In some states, you can only have a certain percentage of light transmitted through the windows. Check the laws in your state before having your windows tinted. The type of film used for window tinting can also vary. Some films are designed to reflect heat, and others provide UV protection. Choose the film that best meets your needs.

Protect Your Car Paint With PPF

Paint protection film (PPF) is a transparent urethane film applied to a car’s painted surfaces. The film acts as a barrier between the paint and the elements, protecting the paint from chips, scratches, and other damage. A PPF can be applied to any painted surface on a car, including the bumper, hood, fenders, mirrors, and door edges. The most common type of PPF is clear bra film, which is nearly invisible once applied.

PPF is essential to keeping your car’s paint looking new for longer. It is beneficial if you live in an area with lots of road debris or if you frequently drive on unpaved roads. If you are considering getting a PPF for your car, ask about the warranty and care instructions before installing it.

Due to its installation process, a good PPF installation would cost around $1800 – $6000. This cost would depend on the quality of the PPF (hydrophobic, self-healing) and the amount of PPF used to wrap your car. If we only cover the front bonnet and high areas, we could land on the cheaper side of the cost range.

Keep That Gloss Longer With Paint Protection like Ceramic Coating

Paint Protection is one of the most important aspects of keeping your car looking new. Ceramic coating is an excellent option for paint protection because it is durable and long-lasting. The ceramic coating comes in many brands, and it would be best to shop around to know what would be best for your car. On another note, it would be best to check on your car detailer on what brands he recommends or his go-to option. While it sounds complicated, the actual ceramic coating application is the easy part and you can apply this ceramic coating from home. The most tricky part would be your paint correction where professional skill is required.

Pro Tip:

If you are looking at complete car protection, then PPF and Ceramic coating can be applied for complete protection. Otherwise, we can mix and match according to your need.

Adjust Trunk Door Height

Most people don’t realize that the Tesla Model Y trunk door can be adjusted to accommodate different heights. This is a handy feature for those who are taller or shorter than average, as it allows you to customize the size of the trunk door to make loading and unloading easier.

To adjust the trunk door height, press and hold the button inside the door handle. The door will then automatically raise or lower to your desired size. You can also adjust the trunk door height using the touchscreen control panel in the centre console.

If you frequently load and unload heavy items from your trunk, you may want to adjust the door height to make it easier on your back. Or, if your Model Y is equipped with 7-seats capability, this would help your young children who often ride in the back seat. You may want to lower the door, so they can easily reach the button. Another scenario would be if your garage got a specific height limit. This feature would prevent your trunk door from hitting that ceiling.

Important! Set Your Tesla Car Profile

When you first get your Tesla Model Y, there are a few settings that you should change to get the most out of your car. You should first go into the car’s profile settings and ensure that everything is set up the way you want it. This is handy if you share your vehicle with another regular driver.

This car profile can hold most preferred settings such as steering position, seat position, side mirror, air condition airflow, driving style, regen-braking preference, etc. And it’s something that many people don’t realize they can change. 

This car profile can be linked to your phone or Tesla keycard with the correct profile. So your car can be preconditioned when your phone comes into Model Y proximity.

Pro Tip:
Always bring your spare keycard key with you in case you need to get a temporary driver, i.e. car-wash or valet, so they won’t mess up your current profile

There you go, the Tesla Model Y is a fantastic car. I believe these life-changing tips and tricks will make owning one much better (At least when looking for stone chipping and cleaning bug gut after a road trip). Try all these tips and tricks to see which works best for you and your car.
