The clear pieces used in some of them was probably also trim molding.

Not to worry. "The dealers offered to service the Model Y for free and give Chien’s family a rental in the meantime". Oh well: I'm sure that Sagebrush or one of the other Teslarati here will explain that that wasn't a bug - it was a fantastic feature.

Be careful not to accidentally trip the ejector button in the gui. Its the little button next to dog mode.

Dog mode is awesome. My neighbor bought her Model 3 based on that one feature plus a demo of Autopilot. She traded in her 3-year old Subaru which had the lane-keeping features. She said it never worked that well and the pedestrian warning system was not usable. I mentioned I drove a '19 Subaru about 60 mi on the freeway awhile back and thought it was pretty functional. She says she just prefers the quiet, smooth drive of an EV and wants to get off of gas and be part of the future. She's 73.

I have about 3500 on my August 05, Model Y. Took it to Utah three days after doing a contactless delivery in Burbank. Hot day, 115 deg in St. George, 680 miles, 4 charging stops, zero issues.
The Y is much quieter than my 3 and has a ton of space. So far so good but it's not my all time favorite car. That would be the Model X which I returned on lease in August.
