    Model 3 GPS position error in tunnel

    I drive the Burnley tunnel every day and not had any issue with maps. Sounds like something you will need to raise with Tesla service.

    While waiting for my M3, I have questions....

    I don't have any data but I would assume the phantom drain number would actually be pretty close to the answer to your question.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I agree Speed, temperature and smoothness of driving have the biggest effect for me. I've driven 1500km in my SR+ with total average of 141Wh/km. That includes some spirited driving to Lorne and back for fun and plenty of freeway and traffic from Geelong to Dandenong. The other morning it was...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    Oh and I forgot to say that after about 10 mins of driving little Miss 3.5year old said "Dad, I love your new fast car" If it lasts 15 years maybe she can have it as her first car

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    The big day arrived this morning. Took my 3.5 year old daughter and her car seat for an adventure on the train from Geelong to Richmond. After couple of train changes, some walking and a stop for lunch we made it to Tesla at midday about 30 mins early. They were busy but all looked well in...

    Post delivery FSD purchase for Model 3 not available online

    I asked about this before I purchased and was told that they would apply the value of lct that would have been applied at time of purchase to any fsd bought after delivery so that no net benefit to buying later. The guy claimed they had gotten in trouble from the ATO in the past about this. (I'm...
