    Keep getting flat tires

    Update: The tire shop said both tires had non repairable gashes. Not malicious. Most likely I drove over something protruding out/up. There was a mini thunder storm the other night with heavy winds. That was the last time I drove. Maybe I went over some fallen branches/debris. Although I don’t...

    Keep getting flat tires

    Got my MS in April. Since then have had 4 flat tires. 2 on the right side from last night. The first flat was a nail. The second was a razor blade. The 2 from last night not sure about yet. I’m sitting at “Just Tires” right now waiting for the diagnosis. Just a silly question. Anything about...

    Automatic trunk latch does not always work

    Just got brand new 2020 MS. The button on the inside of the trunk door brings the trunk door all the way down, but then it hesitates and aborts the closure operation. It does work sometimes, but when it does not work it seems to be random and without any obvious obstructions in the way. Are...

    New Tesla MS Regen Limited

    Im sure that works, but I cannot pre-condition every time I go on a drive. I really just want the car to behave as my previous MS did. Maybe giving us the option to select the minimum battery temp for regen?

    New Tesla MS Regen Limited

    Thanks. Longevity is less important to me as I am leasing for 3 years. So this is a bummer to hear.

    New Tesla MS Regen Limited

    Just got a brand new 2020 MS (long range). Regen has been limited almost all the time with the dashed yellow line on the bottom of the power graph circle. I talked to Tesla service a few times and even brought it over to the SC. We did a supercharge over there for ~15 mins and after that the...

    New MS Lease Insurance Sticker Shock

    My current 2016 MS lease is about to end and I'm starting a new MS 2020 lease next week. Called my insurance (Allstate) to get coverage for the new VIN and they are raising my premium from $2576/yr to $3900/yr! I believe my agent said it was because of the collision portion. Wasn't expecting...

    How to view XM Channel list in 8.0

    Yes, its very frustrating and perplexing. Especially since this was fixed a while back and appears to be back now. While I love Slacker, I also use XM a lot (premium news, sports, music channels..). My next move is to contact Tesla support. Not very optimistic though.

    How to view XM Channel list in 8.0

    This is an older thread now, but I haven't had the XM Radio Station list or browse capability in a while. 2016 Model-S (with latest OS presumably). It might have gone away when they did that major OS change (to be like Model-3)? So I can only access channels by putting exact number in "directly"...

    Triple App Screen on v9!

    Couldn't agree more. Flabbergasted by this v9 release.Such a major UI overhaul. Why? Occasional updates and feature "enhancements" are OK. This crosses the line though (IMHO). I thought the previous UI was slick looking and functional. I don't feel the same about V9. The bolded fonts, for...

    Jet engine LOUD fan in hot weather. Really?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this today and it appears to help. I still am a little perplexed though that this is considered normal. It’s not a normal sound and it’s very disturbing while driving. The car just feels bogged down. It’s not something I have to deal with often as we rarely...

    Jet engine LOUD fan in hot weather. Really?

    No. Nothing to do with charging. Just driving the car on a hot summer day.

    Jet engine LOUD fan in hot weather. Really?

    So we don’t get very many extreme heat days in Chicago (90s and above), but when it is hot (like this weekend), my MS sounds like a jet engine when AC in use. And AC is a must. I stopped by my local SC, and they said it was “normal”. I have a hard time believing this though. How do people in...

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    Sorry you are having the same problem. For what its worth after they replaced the DU in that initial period the error never resurfaced (knock on wood). I have around 8000 miles and about 8.5 months of ownership. Nonetheless this is not an acceptable experience/issue for a brand new car. I hope...
