    Supercharger - Florence, SC (Buc-ee's)

    I’d avoid this one. Almost every spot is ICEd. It’s insanely packed because it’s so new and people get tired of circling the lot and are parking in the charging.

    Changing gears while moving

    I've done this twice at an intersection and didn't realize it until the light turned green and I wouldn't move when I pressed the pedal. Took me a second to figure out what I'd done since it was unintentional. It's surprisingly easy to shift into neutral while canceling autopilot.

    Unauthorized payments and auto-pay

    Last month Tesla Finance initiated a payment that was double my car payment. I didn't have auto-pay on so I called and spoke with a person who first said it was because I never paid my first month's payment, which was in the down payment and paid, so they then said they had no idea and would get...

    Seat puncture from folding third row

    Agreed. I got kid seat protectors and if I fold them down I lower them down slowly myself. Don’t let them slam down on their own anymore.

    Seat puncture from folding third row

    My Tesla Service Center replaced the third row under warranty since it happened less than a month after I got the car.

    Help with die transfer from seatbelts in 3rd row to the seats.

    The seatbelt on mine actually punctured the seat within the first month after I got it. Tesla replaced the seat under warranty even though the warranty actually doesn't cover punctures. I've since bought child seat covers to absorb the impact when the seats fold down. So, that's also something...

    Lane Change Unavailable since 2021.4.21.3

    Has anyone else with this update experienced features of FSD/Autopilot being unavailable? Lane change, which used to work for me every time I attempted it, will now do nothing and several seconds after I use the turn signal it'll tell me it's unavailable.

    Survey: Is Full Self-Driving Capability worth the cost?

    My Model Y without FSD registration didn't come in so Tesla gave me a Model 3 with FSD to drive. I've had it for about a week now and am really grateful I didn't buy FSD. I don't know if they disable parts of FSD on loaners and don't tell you, but the system barely worked for me. Navigate on...

    Wisconsin Registration Nightmare

    I'm in South Carolina and had a similar situation. I picked up the car in Georga since that's the closest store. I gave Tesla the paperwork two or three days after delivery and they didn't send it to the DMV until almost a month later it seems. My tag expired nine days ago, but Tesla gave me a...

    Radarless Driving Report? Anyone?

    I never tried that since it said it has to be on. I'll have to try it out.

    Radarless Driving Report? Anyone?

    Yes this is a problem. I find that Autopilot at night on the Interstate is basically unusable because the auto high beam just doesn't work there. I'm constantly having to exit Autopilot to turn off the high beams and eventually just stopped using it. And the constant on/off even when it does...

    How long before delivery did you install wall charger ?

    I had mine installed about two weeks before what ultimately became my delivery date. I just went ahead and installed it when it came in because my date kept moving and I wanted to be able to charge it at home if it was one of the earlier dates that it would move to. And thinking about it now...

    Sentry works when it wants.

    I also don't see any reasoning behind when it works. The other day it recorded 127 events in a two hour period of a tree shadow moving across an object it was parked next to, but didn't record someone scuffing the car door at a different location.

    Seat puncture from folding third row

    I folded down the third row in my MY for the cargo space and drove around for a few days before pulling them back up. When I did I realized the seatbelt somehow punctured the seat. I’m not really sure how the belt did it, maybe the impact of the slam down. Has anyone experienced this? Is it...
