    Death rattle fix estimate cost for a 2020 LR?

    I had the death rattle in my 2018 and had it fixed (twice). I learned later half shafts with a newer design/part number fixed the problem and eliminated recurrence. That predates the intro of raven models - so I’m wondering, why is this still an issue? Also as to the diagnostic charge: the...

    Windshield, OEM or Aftermarket. Progressive Ins denied OEM.

    To put a little different spin on this - is your car leased? If it is, you could have a problem with non-OEM glass when you turn it in, if they look close enough....

    Summon failure

    Great question - I didn’t even ask. When I picked up, someone was covering the service advisor, so it was just a “here’s your key”.....

    Summon failure

    Thought it could be useful to post an experience here. I'm a rare user of summon; tried it for the first time in a while, and found that it wouldn't work - the app informed me that there was an error reading camera data and that it was disconnecting from the car. This happened repeatedly. I...

    Progressive rating for MS: no blind spot warning

    I have this - but it’s a lane keeping system to keep you from drifting out of your lane. Even though it helps steer you back, I’m sure there are instances when it would be too little too late if you left your lane and there was also a car in your blind spot.

    Progressive rating for MS: no blind spot warning

    I was, of course, happy when Tesla added blind-spot detection to the CID on Model S. But - despite all the superior situational awareness that AP cars have (yes, even yours, @Chickenlittle) , I don't like having to take my eyes off the road to look at the CID to make sure nobody is in my blind...

    Cracked my rear windshield (and possibly roof), cost of repair?

    I had a golf ball hit my rear window this summer; had it replaced at Tesla SC, and it cost $1016.00. They ordered the glass and a local glass subcontractor did the work there. Took the better part of a day. Part took ~6 weeks to arrive. Sorry the news isn’t better..........

    How can I protect my privacy with a Tesla?

    One thing that’s a little tricky is if others in your family have app access -which you’d want any other driver to have. But - if you’re somewhere on a stealthy errand (buying a gift?) or perhaps another scenario in which you’d prefer your location to be private - they could easily see your...

    Model S HW 2.0 to HW 3.0 Upgrades? (Not HW2.5 or Model 3 upgrades to HW3)

    As an aside, I asked about getting the HW 3.0 update (from 2.5) at the service center; they told me that the upgrade can’t be done until it’s “VIN matched”; I have an appointment for a host of problems tomorrow - will have to see what they say (i.e. whether or not my car is VIN matched yet for...

    Late 2016 / Early 2017 S Owners: How Are Your Daytime Running Lights Holding Up?

    My 2018’s DRL is fading out on the driver side from the top/middle to the inside corner.

    Strange noise on full throttle acceleration. Any ideas??

    There are some other threads on this with more info. In brief, it's a common issue. The first fix that I described above (axle nut and bearing replaced) was short lived. I had to bring mine in again and I actually had to tell them what I knew was wrong based on this forum. (Crazy, huh?) . They...

    Yellow Band on Screen UV fix - photos

    No kidding. I’m actually on a waiting list for the UV fix!!

    Another "Tesla killer" fading already?

    Etrons can definitely be seen driving around my area. I looked at one at the Audi dealer - typical beautiful high-quality German interior, but with such an inferior/impractical range.....

    Prospective return customer

    My experience with an ‘18 100D: Driver seat defective at delivery. Replaced. Replacement seat was like a rocking chair in 30 days. Replaced again. Loose trim and door panel at delivery. Before I even left my delivery I had a scheduled service visit to get that fixed. Resolved 2 weeks later...

    Enhanced Summon makes FSD seem light years away

    The first test was to back out of my garage, down the short driveway, and park alongside the sidewalk. Instead of going straight back, it turned and nearly backed into the garage wall. The second time was in a parking lot.... it needed to back out of the spot, go 15 feet and go right. It started...
