    What should be in the charging cable kit?

    It is not mine to understand. They say it has something to do with communication between charger and car that was changed in 2018. Tesla did two things you rarely heard of: sent me serial numbers for the different Gen chargers AND EXCHANGED my mobile gen1 for the latest Gen ( I still had to buy...

    Customer Service destroys loyalty

    Like everything but reliability ( oh price too). Great when under warranty. After owning many don’t even let a month out of warranty go by.

    What should be in the charging cable kit?

    Old charging gear. Gen-1 doesn’t work with all 2020 and after MS. Tesla has not released specific guides but Gen 1 Destination chargers often don’t work so Destination Charger map is flawed and hotels have no idea.

    Customer Service destroys loyalty

    Just got an App reply. And a phone call but not from app message. The app message clearly indicates that whatever they are doing is incompetent. My comment on service call clearly said I am one day after service and please call. Instead they send estimate. Mmmm. They did the work first time for...

    FSD for 10k, is it worthwhile

    NO!!!! Flawed. And Restricted. False alarms every day with braking for bikers on side of road or cars that turned off road and moving so not in front but disappearing to side. I feel stupid for $7k on my 2020 MS. Was dumb for 2015 one too.

    Destination Charging Failures

    How is it 3 and y models work and S does not? Do 2021-22 S work? Simply It is an ethical issue. Hotels don’t know and mislead customers. Tesla knows and will not recall or notify customers. Tesla does not even label their devices - (except with serial numbers that cannot be deciphered...

    Destination Charging Failures

    Gen 1 Destination Chargers DO NOT Charge Post 2018 Model S. Per Tesla wall connector support team (877) 961-7652 or [email protected] I thought they told me all Teslas but now have seen 3 &Y successful where my model S won’t. They don’t tell you when you buy! My model s in car...

    Series 1 HPWC issues with 2018 model S

    Destination Chargers type Generation 1 do not work for charging Tesla’s built in 2018,19,20 and 21. Tesla claims thousands of destination chargers without identifying ones they know do not work even on the in car map of cars who cannot use them. Misleading at the very least.

    Destination Charger Roulette

    15 months and Tesla has done nothing. Gen 1 chargers don’t work on 2020 and 2021 cars. Service knows there a communication problem. Hotels and Restaurants don’t know what they have, Tesla map shows all even in the car even when they should know they are mis-directing the car. Tesla service...

    Reporting Destination Charger Failure

    Tesla destination failure may be your car not the charger. AND Tesla won’t tell you. I had August trip two stops two destination chargers in my June 2020 S: my charge ring went red. August Tesla service says it’s bad hotel charger. November service chat with service about something else but...
