    Spontaneous windshield crack?

    BTW, how long is the warranty on my Tesla M3, in case they will cover it. I bought it new in Oct of 2018. I guess I should bring it down to the shop here in Reno. I heard somewhere that this is a common problem with the 2018 M3, makes me think it is a design flaw. -Don- Reno, NV

    An issue with the 16KW Destination stns with Tesla-Tap

    I guess nobody knows! -Don- Reno, NV

    A FLAT should NOT be this difficult!

    It takes up some room, but it's not that big of a deal. You can still put stuff on top of the wheel. IIRC, it's not a full size wheel. But I think it is this one that I have. I don't have the wheel cover with mine, -Don- Reno, NV

    Spontaneous windshield crack?

    My 2018 Tesla M3 now has a "L" shaped crack a couple of feet long in the very center of the windshield. Seems to be an issue with 2018 Tesla M3's. -Don- Reno, NV

    A FLAT should NOT be this difficult!

    But I never bought one, so you cannot blame me for it becoming the norm these days. -Don- Reno, NV

    IMAO, when a car doesn't include the stuff to replace one wheel, it's their fault. Or perhaps it is our fault because over the years the buyers didn't even notice they no longer had spares. We let it happen. BTW, I bought this the same week I got my Tesla M3. -Don- Reno, NV

    Is regen same across all models?

    There in GA, there will be no benefit that I am aware of, other than more power and having a backup motor. Here in Reno, it snows and the dual motor is much like 4WD. As long as the snow isn't too deep. Teslas have very little ground clearance. -Don- Reno, NV

    Is regen same across all models?

    I disagree on both. I love to be able to control the regen by my left hand. And I still have the choice to use both it and the brake pedal. -Don- Auburn, CA

    Is regen same across all models?

    My 2018 Tesla was my first EV car. I had two Zero motorcycles before then. If today, the Tesla regen could be a deal breaker for me too, after seeing the way they did it in my 2022 Chevy Bolt. But I wonder why they would remove it in the first place, just select what you like makes more...

    Is regen same across all models?

    I don't know about the Cadillac and how it compares to the 2022 Chevy Bolt. I don't understand how anybody can prefer Tesla's method of too much regen at default and none added with the brake pedal and no real control over it while driving. With the Bolt I decide how much regen I want every...

    Is regen same across all models?

    That becomes too touchy for me. But I realize it can be done, just set everything to max and don't use max. I prefer to be able to let go and just coast at a reasonable speed, as does my Chevy Bolt. But when I want more regen, I can adjust it as I am slowing down with the regen on the steering...

    An issue with the 16KW Destination stns with Tesla-Tap

    Bump! In case anybody new here has a guess to what causes the above issue. What do the 16KW Tesla Destination Charge Stations want to see that none of the others do, within that ten minutes? -Don- Reno, NV

    Is regen same across all models?

    I own a 2018 Tesla M3, AWD, LR and a 2022 Chevy Bolt (I think I bought the last Bolt in the USA before the big recall, just a few hours later). Anyway, the way the regen works in the Bolt is MUCH better than the Tesla for countless reasons. The Bolt has a lever on the steering wheel to use regen...

    Second Tesla Home Charger Dead

    Needs some clarification. Do you mean a Tesla Wall Connector? The charger is inside your vehicle. A Wall Connector is simply an AC supply for the charger inside your vehicle. If you do mean a Tesla Wall Connector, mention the model number. -Don- Reno, NV

    Does your E-car charge when hit by lighting?
