Received my truck yesterday. Unfortunately I’ve only put in about 20 miles as I have been too busy. I did receive my wall charger 4 days before delivery so I had it installed before the truck arrived. Word of caution, you will need a very strong wifi signal by the charger to pair. I purchased a wifi extender and even then it struggles to stay connect even though there are 3/4 bars of signal. Spare tire and cross bars to come later.

Initial reaction:

Insane performance
No noticeable roll on corners
Quiet (except for loud fans when stopped)
Comfortable
High quality materials
Feels solid
Infotainment is responsive
Pairing to garage opener took seconds
Build quality seems good so far

Couple of little negative things:

Headliner had barcode sticker on the roof side above the rear headrest. A corner was hanging out of it and as much as I tried pulling, it wouldn’t come out. Had to tuck it up. When opening the doors there seems to be noticeable blue glue dripage by door sills. Rear passenger headrest was stuck and unable to move up or down.

Overall experience so far is fantastic. Got it tinted today including roof and windshield. I put my order in at the end of September 2021. Did some changes in late May as suggested by Rivian (changed from OC interior to black and silver exterior to limestone). I do live close to the service center in Orlando, FL and guessing those factors helped.

Ahhh crap, I wish I knew that sooner. I am getting my truck on Saturday and I imagine the wall charger shortly thereafter. I wonder if a wifi extender that you plug into the wall would help boost the signal to the garage.
I am using a wifi extender, but unless I am in a sweet spot in the garage it will not pair. I believe you have to pair it at least once, but it does not have to be connected to Wi-Fi to charge. The Wi-Fi is so you can see the charging metrics from your phone. Most of the time my phone will show that the Wi-Fi is not connected, but I was able to pair it once so it connected to the system. One update unrelated to the wall charger. My truck did not have blue glue around the sill. It was just little remaining pieces of the blue plastic that must have covered the carpet and seats.
