    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    Same situation here....Just had the work done last week..."Replaced Tegra Daughterboard Inside MCU" for a total cost of $345.30. Was also expecting the thousand plus replacement with a refurb unit, but was happily surprised. :-)

    2 year anniversary

    Had ours in about a month ago for our "two year maintenance visit." Maintenance consisted of checking brake fluid for boiling point (it was well over the spec), rotating the tires, changing the cabin filter, changing the wiper blades and adding wiper fluid. Total cost: $114 for two years of...

    2 PWs coming where should be mount them

    My two Powerwall2s are located on a concrete pad on the south side of my home outdoors. Tesla said that would be fine.

    How long does a Powerwall support a home during a power outage?

    If you have a Powerwall installed, codes require that the grid be switched off automatically by the system. That gateway switch, as Tesla calls it I think, is required as part of the install of the Powerwalls. It was in my locality anyway, for the exact reasons of safety as you describe. What...

    How long does a Powerwall support a home during a power outage?

    I can only give you my experience as follows: We have a 7.8 kW solar array connected with two Tesla Powerwall 2s. During the recent PG&E blackouts here in Sonoma County, and the Kincade fire, our system performed flawlessly. It covered everything we needed including some AC load, entire 1600...

    Today was our T-DAY

    18 months in on a February 2018 delivered Model 3...yes! one of the dreaded "poor build quality" series...can't find any significant build issues including body panel gap problems. Car has been absolutely great. No service or maintenance required thus far, other than tire rotation. Very...

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    Same here. Just requested a service appointment for FSD upgrade for my Model 3 delivered in February, 2018 for which FSD option was purchased. "Not doing those yet. We will reach out to you when the upgrade is available..."

    Tesla service invoice for in warranty diagnosis?

    This has been the typical way of doing business with my service center the last couple of times I went in. They ask you to sign, but I have never had an actual need for out-of-warranty service on either my 2015 Model S or my wife's 2018 Model 3. Your new Model 3 will not be charged for service...

    2015 Tesla Accelerated into a wall

    While I sympathize with your problems with the car, I don't see how this can be "Tesla's fault," given you have a repaired salvage car that was not recertified by Tesla. I am just not sure how you will ever figure out what really happened here. Good luck!

    What other car manufacturer on the planet does this?

    I have to wholeheartedly agree with the title of this thread! I had a similar recent experience to that of the OP. I got a "12V battery needs maintenance" warning on my IC. I called Tesla and they told me they did see the warning and would call me back within 24 to 72 hours to confirm a Tesla...

    Tesla posts FSD demo video of Model 3

    There are three forward facing cameras. One is a wideview. That is what's used to see all the cars at a four-way stop.

    12/18 M3P Got More Than I Paid For

    Have to agree here as well - NOT screwed by Tesla. Tesla certainly has had its share of problems. After all, it is the first automobile manufacturer to go public since Ford did so in 1956. So, start up issues, sure, I expected them. But, I have to say, after we received my wife's Model 3 in...

    Updated Info on 2020 Roadster

    Competition at 3 million pounds sterling? WoW!!! :eek:

    Superchargers pushed back to 2019

    While I understand your frustration, I do not necessarily believe that "...VW may beat Tesla with regards to Level 3 charging here..." It has taken Tesla many years to achieve what it has for the SuC network. It is, by far, the best in the world. Why would VW have ANY incentive to put large...

    Battery runs out with 16% indicated range remaining

    My experience with my 2015 Model S P90DL is also quite similar. Limited regen first thing in the morning with air temps at 50F or lowr.
