    Time to sell my 2013 Model S - P85+

    I’ve loved this car. I originally bought it for my commute, after doing the same with a Tesla Roadster for 2 years. Then I changed jobs and moved to the city, and my commute became a 4 block walk. I no longer needed a car, but I kept it because I loved it. Now in 2 months we're moving to...

    p85+ comes to life during overnight charge???

    My p85+ came with 4.5 (didn't record the build number) but they pushed an update and after a few days I haven't seen a reoccurrence, so I think we'll consider this fixed. Turbofroggy - when it came on, it was fully alive.

    p85+ comes to life during overnight charge???

    both keys were together inside the house. I just called Tesla and opened a service ticket.

    p85+ comes to life during overnight charge???

    Not 5 minutes later it had already turned itself on again... I should also mention that as I approach the door the handles don't pop out. It seems to believe I'm already inside the car. I had to use either the app or the trunk to get it to unlock. This feels like a bug.

    p85+ comes to life during overnight charge???

    Running 4.5 - I just rebooted the center console. I'll see if that makes a difference.

    p85+ comes to life during overnight charge???

    I've had it for a couple weeks, and had few issues. But about one or two nights a week, after I park in the garage, plug it in, and lock it - I come out hours later to find it awake and playing music (as if I were siting in the driver seat). The garage is even warm because the A/C has been...

    Depreciation and long term value (based on mileage)

    It's not so much the depreciation itself I'm concerned about. I guess I'm trying to figure out whether it's crazy for me to see this as a better alternative for someone that's going to pile on a lot of mileage. All kinds of things will wear out (like bollar mentioned) it just seems that there...

    Depreciation and long term value (based on mileage)

    I've had a Roadster for a couple years and get my Model S this weekend. I'm a bit surprised by the notion of reducing the value of the car $1/mile driven. I drive a lot, and I'll certainly hit 100K miles. I even hope to be driving it until the battery needs replacement. At that point the car...

    Seeking your advice on getting Roadster

    I had similar experiences with the tire pressure monitor false alerting, a trunk leak from a missing screw, bad radio reception (fixed that with Sirius), and went with the Proxes 4 tires (quieter and lasts longer). It's been my primary commute vehicle for almost 2 years/28K miles, and I've been...

    #3901 Twilight Blue

    2011 Twilight Blue Roadster 2.5 (#1309) leased June 26, 2011. It has approximately 28,000 miles. It has CA carpool stickers and it's been my primary commute vehicle. We've opted to enroll my 4 year old in a school along my commute route, and while legally I can put her car seat into a Roadster...

    Black dust?

    Tires? I've had a few cars with sport tires, and they often had a film of what appeared to be micro particles of tire. It's softer and less gritty than road dust.
