    Skyforce Relaggy

    Sure, most of you may be adults and so no longer play video games (especially in your car), but I'm hooked on Skyforce Reloaded. Unfortunately, the game is sometimes laggy. In a shmup like Skyforce, lag will always happen at the very worst moment. It typically results in thinking I'm skirting...

    WiFi not turning in automatically

    I'm a conspiracy theorist at heart, but I swear there's some corporate espionage happening in Tesla's software department. Lately, releases seem to contain only bugs with no actual features.

    The Report-Your-No-Problems Thread

    I picked up my Model 3 LR on 12/29/2020. Today it has 28,430 miles and hasn't had any major problems.

    Unsure if model 3 would be right for me - advice appreciated

    How can an ICE vehicle give you 90% of what a Tesla provides? Certainly they both provide transportation... but the similarities stop there.

    "Doesn't the battery only last ten years."

    Neighbor had some questions about my Model 3

    This is why I give test drives to every stranger I meet that shows any interest.

    Differences between 2019 and 2022 Model 3 Long Range AWD

    Ah, okay. Thanks for clarifying. I've got the vegan leather. It's fine by me.

    2 Questions from new Tesla owner after first long trip…

    So basically, in any state whose laws make it difficult for Tesla to resell you electricity, they instead rent you the charger by the minute.

    No more vegan leather steering wheel?

    Car turned off while supercharging

    If anyone with a Model 3/Y hasn't already experienced this, I recommend you do this one your own to be prepared. When you're one a slower, low traffic road - just hold both scroll wheels for a long 4 seconds. Everything still works outside of the car, but the electronics inside will go...

    Is a RWD / Standard Model 3 ok for a 140 Mile daily commute?

    @Juice780 - did you make a decision? Also worth noting is that cold winter weather can seriously reduce range... like as much as 40% (worst case scenario). A cold battery runs much less efficient, plus heat usage, plus precipitation and headwinds. I'm in New York though, not North Carolina. If...

    Mismanaged - The Problem With Government-Funded EV Chargers (TMC Podcast Clip)

    I'm surprised this isn't already being done then. Somewhere in Nevada or Arizona or something.

    Car turned off while supercharging

    I disagree that there's a habit of shutting down, and with the idea of shutting down before a road trip. This type of post will scare the public away from EVs. There's nothing special that needs to be done with the car, just drive it. And don't freak out when you don't understand something...
