    Service in Houston besides the SC

    Great suggestion on TireRack for the parts. I had no idea they sold brakes. Now, for the trusty mechanic...I don't have one...and the few referrals that I have called will not work on Tesla.

    Service in Houston besides the SC

    The whole car vibrates when slowing down from 60 if I need to use the brakes. It is hard for me to tell whether it is the front or rear rotors, although I think it may be rear because I had the fronts turned by Brake Check about 1 year ago. Yes, the steering wheel shakes as well, which tells me...

    Service in Houston besides the SC

    I need to get some brake work (warped rotors) and an alignment done on my 2017 S. I know I can go to the service center, but they are outrageously expensive, so I wanted to ask if anyone has used an independent mechanic or shop that is familiar with Tesla's around Houston. Most places that I...

    S100D Air Conditioner Cuts out on Humid Days?

    i have a 2017 S75, and this has happened several times in the past month. Very uncomfortable here in Houston....I took it to the service center last year and they replaced a part which showed a fault, but the problem is still there. Is this still an issue? I am on the latest software revision.

    Slipstream vs Arachnid?

    i debated this exact situation 2 years ago. i thought and thought and thought about it, but did not like the look of the Slipstreams. I put the Arachnids on and never looked back. They are still very smooth and maybe a bit louder, but its all what you get used to. I don't even notice them any...

    21" Tires

    Update - Mounting is only $20 per tire. Cost of tire is $216 plus $20 mounting = $236 per tire Even if i buy from Discount Tire direct, they still charge me $20 to mount per tire. That being said, i went ahead and ordered the same Michelin's that I have now. They have done well enough for me...

    21" Tires

    So, its time for me to get some new rubber on my Model S. I have the Michelins that come with the Arachnids now, and have been very happy. I was planning on sticking with those, but came across the Continentals at the same price ($350ish). Any experience with these? Do these have the sound...

    New Bluetooth bug in v9

    This is what happens to me. I use a Bluetooth Headset while driving. It is much quieter than the BT in the car. If i am on the phone, then park, then open the trunk to get my bag out, the radio immediately turns on. Even after i close the trunk and lock the car, the radio is still on. All...

    New owner Trip Question

    Also, turn off your cabinet overheat protection and preconditioning. I have a 75 as well, and have had to make a couple of trips like that, and it definitely gets close. Remember that wind speed will also affect you. I suggest going 65 on the way there, and if you have enough battery, then you...

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Try driving at exactly 7 mph, and see if the issue is consistently reproduced. Mine does. I took it to the SC last week, and they said this was a new one. They were going to do some research and get back to me. My struts have already been replaced multiple times.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    when the noise is happening, can you feel it in the steering wheel? I can on mine.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    just to make certain that I have the same issue, if you drive at 5-7 mph can you hear the noise from the front end and feel it on the steering wheel? I don't want to waste time taking it in if that is the same issue. Thanks.
