    Excessive Wh/mi at highway speeds

    This. I've already been down this road with Tesla service and my M3P with 20" wheels. Currently at 17k miles, average of 355Wh/mi lifetime and I don't drive aggressively either. Here's what service had me do: Pick a flat stretch of highway and a 20 mile route on a dry day around 70F. Turn off...

    Popping Noise When Turning/Going Over Bumps

    In case this is helpful, here is what my service invoice noted: Clunking noise under car like large metal plate is buckling when the car flexes (i.e. entering a steep driveway where one front wheel goes up hill first and bends the car). Verified customer concern. Found noise to be coming from...

    Popping Noise When Turning/Going Over Bumps

    I've had a noise from day 1 in my 2018 M3P which may be similar to what others are experiencing. Mine sounds like a large piece of sheet metal buckling or clunking when going over uneven surfaces or when the car twists from sharp turns or when one front wheel is on a different level than the...

    Am at a loss: is the $2k FSD offer going away on Monday?

    Communication isn't Tesla's strong point....

    Creaking sound in Model 3

    Ruebs, this matches my experience exactly. They replaced my seat and the noise is gone but I feel like it's going to come back soon. Before the replacement, moving the passenger seat forward a little made the noise go away so I'll just stick with that.

    Seat (dis)comfort after 5,000 miles

    Definitely the V2 seats are super uncomfortable to me. This is actually the first seat in any car (besides a race car) that has given me pain, regardless of how I adjust them. The pain I experience is in my right leg from the midpoint of my hamstring up through my lower glute. I'm 6'4", 200lbs...

    Supercharger charging at half the speed it was the previous day

    Yes, I unplugged, rebooted the screen, did a manual power down and power back up. Nothing helped. I'll get some more info today with both cars....

    Supercharger charging at half the speed it was the previous day

    I frequently supercharge my S and 3 at an urban supercharger nearby. I'm very familiar with the charge speeds at all battery charge levels. However in the past week sometime, something interesting has occurred. It's behaving like my car thinks it's a full speed supercharger and is directing the...

    Firmware 9 in August will start rolling out full self-driving features!!!

    People will know here and there, but I'm always surprised that EAP participants don't readily post more, even on Reddit. I've been in an EAP car and it's always interesting to see "what's coming," but there have never really been any consistent leaks. I mean, the EAP program has been going on...

    Putting down payment now on second model 3

    I am a Model S owner with 2 Model 3 reservations. Both have been available to configure for a few weeks now. Is this normal or am I an outlier?

    Sorry for the sarcasm. I guess I just got excited for something that could have been a great partnership (like Alliant CU) and I am feeling pretty let down at the moment. Switching back to my logical self...at the end of the day, I have a choice with insurance and I certainly won't be picking...

    Bravo, Tesla, on a very well thought out service which looks to provide excellent value for your customers. We really appreciate this.
