I've Driven my Rivian 1500 Miles! - And something already broken...

Its time to see how the Rivian Holds up with daily use and trucky situations... Get a free shaker from HUEL here: jlinks.io/jerryrigeverything Huge thanks to Huel for sponsoring this video. I'm a huge fan of electric vehicles - and ive been looking forward to this Rivian R1T for the past 3 years. How does it hold up after 2 months of doing real world truck stuff though? Today we find out. Unfortunately something is already broken...

    Great technology- pulling off EV truck in the very first attempt is absolutely incredible ! After 24 months of continuous improvement, this may end up sweeping the $1 T truck market, prices too will become affordable as demand rises and economics-of-scale comes into play. 2025 will be the inflection year and 2030 is when ICE cars will completely disappear.

      @Clayton Since you asked, I'll provide my 2 cents. I apologize in advance. I'm iffy on hydrogen as a fuel source. It's better for the environment in some ways and is quick to refill but comes with a number of things I dislike. Hydrogen is not readily available in the atmosphere and cost of production is high. A gallon of hydrogen fuel is around $16 right now and requires electrolysis of water for its production. I feel the reason it's hyped is because big business can control it and make money off of it. Something they can't do with solar. With hydrogen you can go to the station and fill up just like gasoline, so it only takes a few minutes, but like gas you'll be filling up regularly and hemorrhaging money constantly. It's more of the same, big businesses siphoning the money out of our pockets. With solar the only money made is up front, from selling the panels. The sun provides free energy and they can't charge you for it. That's why so little money is put into research and development and improving solar technology. There's no endless source of money to be made from it. Also hydrogen requires water to be made. How is producing mass amounts of hydrogen fuel going to impact areas suffering from historical droughts like California and looks like it's only get worse in the future. Putting our efforts into advancing free energy such as solar, wind, hydro-electric, etc. and how to store it is what we need to be doing. The U.S. subsidizes the oil industry $20.5 billion annually. That's our tax money going to the oil companies just so they will keep production steady and not f with the economy. That's on top of what we spend at the pump. We need to change and stop giving that money to big business and start putting it into technology that will help America break free of big business control and reliance on foreign imports. I'll step down from my soapbox now. Sorry for the rant.

    Remember when you regenerate power going downhill you can only recover a portion of the energy, about 20% max. This is a benefit but a lot of people think it's all the power. If you fed that much power back into a battery, you'd still lose a lot through resistance but you'd light the battery on fire doing it.

    It does feel like the majority of your suggestions can/will be covered in over the air software updates. Bet the cover issue is due to a piece of cardboard being pulled down into the cover track. The cover motor probably closes the “closed” loop based on resistance/load.

      Really? I had a 4x4 long box and used it for everything, including feeding cattle. Lived 5 miles at the end of a 3 mile long dirt road that turned to mud in the Spring. Had to chain all 4 wheels to get in and out of there. Those were the days- lotsa fun! I have a VERY powerful stereo system. I'd turn it all the way up and go outside to swim in my irrigation pond, which was fed from a spring that came out of the ground right there. An electric pump and a long irrigation pipe at the source and about 8 feet down, fed the spring water to a cistern on the hill behind my house.

    Really great video! Thank you. I appreciate your approach in all respects. Now, I don't think that the bed cover breaking like that (and that soon) is a minor thing! I would also find the "dancing" to be a non-minor issue. These sorts of things are a function of overall design and build-quality, and more and more build-quality concerns are emerging. I'm still in wait-and-see mode on EV trucks. Too much money is involved for me to be an early-adopter. The future looks promising, however. Thanks again!

    As I personally do not like the Rivian, I am captivated by the EV's as a whole. I am with you on the dashboards though. Not just for the info, but for the integrated looks and style. For something so expensive, I would expect the dashboard to be integrated, not have a couple of tablets slapped on the dash. I'm also with you on the cameras. If they are going to have cameras installed, then they need to be used for everything a vehicle would need to use cameras for, including Drive Cam. I would think that the safety of the people IN the vehicle, as well as the vehicle itself would warrant a Drive Cam. This also goes for the access ports for plug in's and such. I'm shocked that the doors don't close themselves or shut themselves electronically when you close them. This is very interesting it's hard to get them shut all the way. I do have some questions.......... Do the instrument panels have battery operation itself? (do they show the physical and temperature status of the battery as well as usage) Have you had any issues with the battery not functioning properly in cold or heat? Have you had any strange "electric" smells or burning smells? What maintenance, if any, have you found these EV's need often or constantly? Is the final total cost of purchasing an EV (including accessories and charging station) equal, or more than that of a fuel driven vehicle? Thanks for all of your status updates. All of this info is of great use to anyone interested in EV's!!!

      I could be wrong, but, I’m pretty sure all cars made since the 90’s typically contain baffles for this very reason. Car manufacturers realized that making a quieter cabin meant that they would have more of an air tight space. So they incorporate baffles, usually behind the cabin and under some panel that you’d likely never touch, like plastic body panels or quarter panel. They likely just need to modify how it passes sudden air flow. I have the same issue on a 2022 Elantra. I think it’s just the stiffness in the rubber they use or poor location. Such as in the trunk area.

    I wouldn't expect the price of this truck to come down over time. Its priced in the luxury vehicle range. Rivian may come out with a more base model truck or smaller truck that's cheaper. I also wouldn't consider this truck to be in the "technology" category like consumer electronics (TVs, DVD players, Drones, etc) where the price for a similar product drastically comes down over time.

    Sound proofing materials should add weight to the door and that should help in closing. I suspect that the closing issue has to do with the new door seals. Try opening the widow, any window, a bit to allow the air to get out when closing the door. Unless opening a window is like opening the door and the truck will not move. There should be an interlock in the seat that senses the driver in the seat so opening the door will not stop the vehicle from moving. Whomever came up with that is a safety weenie.

I don't know what state you live in, but take a look online - you may find your state allows a free windshield replacement.

    The great news is that most things are fixable via updates. I’m waiting on my R1S and can’t wait to see how that will be. I have no plans for going into the wilds with it but in New England where the weather can be rough I’m thinking it’ll be a good fit. Hopefully you can cover that vehicle at some point too! So happy to hear it’s pickup is great overall!

    I’m guessing you didn’t haul 1.5 yards of dirt all at once in that tiny box. The Rivian payload capacity is 1760 lbs, which is typical of trucks with short beds. 1.5 yards of dirt dry weighs over 2000 lbs., and probably closer to 3000 lbs. The only real complaint I have about Rivian is the look. It’s looks absolutely horrible.

    This is proof I will keep my 13 3.5 ecoboost- at 380,000 miles it’s a beast… never had a single issues until 180k when the throttle body gave up. I will say I have seen the rivian and sat in it I like it a lot… but wouldn’t consider it for the price, lack of long term reliability, and I can say the towing mileage kills me. I like to tow my camper with my atv on the back of our truck. And I can go from NC to NY or Florida and only stop once. They are nice- I would like a rivian or lightning for my wife and for the days that we don’t need my truck but not for $10,000+

    I feel like this is similar to the Ford Lightning. I keep hearing about it, but it doesn't seem anyone is actually making and selling them. Nor does it seem to be coming in the near future. I am very interested in both trucks, but I wonder how long before one can walk up and buy one. it appears with the lightning it will be many years. their last update was they could make 15K of them a year, and had nearly a million backed up in pre-order. Were you able to buy this 'off the street', or is it some kind of pre-order and wait situation? Oh, same with the cybertruck, I don't think its ever happening. it feels like it was just a giant publicity stunt, as I read they are not taking orders or making any (yet?) *** correction, I saw you mentioned in the video you pre-ordered this 3 years ago. Great piece, btw. Most of the pieces I see on these trucks are from car shows, and feel more like advertising propaganda. Yours feels like a genuine discussion, which is very appreciated.

      Simplicity is reliability. You can always install one of those android radios into your dash that can then add on creature comforts that modem vehicles have. 2000s were the beginning of the end of work horse trucks. A stack of filters and crates of fluids along side your toolbox is all you needed to make them last 10-20 years with minimum major services. Nowadays all it takes is a crappy sensor or circuit board made by an outsourced manufacturer to end operations. There’s a reason the old rigs especially those pre DEF diesels are in such high demand

    Hey there JerryRigEverything. I Love your Channel and want to thank you for all you do, for so many! I can commiserate with you, when you addressed the fact about it being unsettling, when you are not moving, but the vehicle is resetting it's "Self Leveling" process. I had this experience a few years ago. I had just moved to an Island in Washington State, U.S.A.. I owned a Cadillac de Elegance, which had a similar feature that under "Normal" circumstances I really enjoyed. The faster I would go, the lower the cars' stance would become. All-in-all it was novel and never caused any issues... that is until... until I moved to this island, that is. Living on an island makes it necessary to use the Ferry System to get to the main land. Holy Hell, the first time that I drove onto the Ferry and parked myself, I was sitting in my car and had no idea what was going on, at first?! I mean, I'm sitting there and my car starts to Dance? Up, Down, front left Up while rear right goes Down. WTH? I actually got out of my car to assess what the issue was. But once I got out, the car stopped its' little dance. Took me a couple of minutes to figure this all out, What, Why, How, etc. Turns out my car was on a Ferry, which is in the Water and my poor car was doing its' best to keep itself level, while floating on Water! Poor little guy. Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you. What a trip. Remain Well and at least reasonably Happy and... Keep Smiling...

      I'm not sure if you were including Tesla's on this list or not, but they do indeed have both Dashcam and Sentry mode options available as long as you provide an external drive to save the footage. Pick up a thumb drive and you will be good to go. It will store roughly 45 minutes to an hour of Dashcam footage and many incidents of Sentry mode before you have to delete anything. Then if an incident were to occur that requires you to save footage, you can then save the Dashcam to a separate file for later usage. It happened to me and luckily the guy that hit me was a stand up dude and admitted it was his fault and I never needed the footage. Had it been someone not as honest, then I would have submitted the footage immediately.

    The bed is just too short (IMO), but it seems to be working out for Jerry. I think that a two foot longer bed would be extremely helpful. Styling is subjective and some people may just love it, but I have always thought the front end is ugly. Sticker prices are not going down on this truck, or on any other electric vehicle out there. They have already announced that while the people who pre-ordered months/years ago will have their pricing respected (grudgingly), all those who come after will see significant price increases. Raw material prices for all the components that go into these battery packs for all manufacturers have just exploded. Lastly, this companies most pressing challenge is just to build the vehicles. Production is dead slow even for a company that at this point is not shooting for high volumes. So the manufacturing division has a lot of issues to work on. At this point in time and probably for the next few years at least, the company will bleed cash.

      @TheRainHarvester unlikely, as if this car is ever parked in a collection it would present the same situation as making the sensor think the door is shut forever.

      @Confinium not necessarily possible. Most sensors are on i2c bus and might notice if the sensor is stuck in the closed position. It MIGHT work now....and it MIGHT not work later with an update.

    I wanna know more about the business you mentioned and the teething problems you've had and the solutions. As an engineer who's brought many products to market, I love a good war story. My war story entails passing out while inspecting an assembly line in China, coming to in the hospital, and arguing with the surgeon, who was literally smoking, that they could not take out my appendix because I did not have one.

    All of that stuff is great.. until it breaks. Imagine the cost of repairs. The same can be said about other vehicles but when you consider the total cost it raises the aggravation bar quite a few notches. The insurance has to be more considering the cost as well

    Expensive truck! 69k base and 119k fully loaded not counting the launch edition. Maybe I will consider getting one when the base costs around 40k and the fully loaded Rivian costs around 70k. Not being cheap but right now my Ram 1500 does most truck things very well, including overlanding, for a fraction of the cost.

    The air suspension adjusting itself at a stoplight is something you get on most all air equipped vehicles with any sort of decent management systems to adjust for any leaks in the air lines or if it originally set the pressures on any sort of an incline. It's funny the Rivian uses the same approach as the AirLift I have on my vehicles. It was definitely a weird feeling the first time I bagged one of my vehicles, too!

    Try closing the door with the window open to see if it's sound proofing related. Now the front window is broken maybe you could use your fancy scratch tools to see how scratch resistant car windows are.

    Hey first time here. Love the video, for your door close issue try cracking the windows just a little bit. I feel it has to do with how tightly they seal up. Kenworth semis are the same way. Just a guess to try.

    My wife calls it 'breathing' when the R1T adjusts the height at stoplights. In my three months, I have many of the same complaints at just over 4,000 miles. The doors being hard to shut is not an issue to me because I like the quiet. Thanks, Jerry.

      @leolol If there was a vent for the pressure release, the truck could not be watertight. It can wade up to 3 feet, or until it floats.

      I would think that would be fixed with an over-the-air update. My Tesla automatically cracks one of the windows just a bit when the door is shutting, then rolls it up.

    I sincerely hope that EV truck prices come down in the near future. There's excellent product market fit for a high torque, high towing capacity and cheap to run vehicle. Diesel prices suck and livestock ain't easy to transport.
