    Model 3 specific Jack Pad

    Why do I need to use a jack pad at all? I’m talking about using a low profile jack with a flat saddle, so there is no difference between the shape of the surface of a pad vs no pad. The jack itself pushes right on the correct spot. I see no value in the pad.

    Bizarre System Power Failure

    One more piece of evidence I just thought of: The other night (one or two days before the power shutdown incident), my car failed to install a software update that was available. I have never had a s/w update fail before. I just read a thread about how this update is gated by the 12V system - if...

    Bizarre System Power Failure

    Yeah I was thinking the same, but I’d been driving all over with no 12V warnings and then just BOOM, out of the blue car won’t start .... and 2 hours later it’s fine again. Really weird. Hard to explain. I’ll report back when Tesla diagnoses this.

    Bizarre System Power Failure

    My model year 2014 Model S just had a weird failure today. I dropped my kid off at school and went to the gym as usual. I returned to the car after my workout, but the screens were blank, and I thought it was just one of those occasional system reboots that happen to us all. No big deal right...

    Model 3 doors/windows/mirrors + Ice = trouble

    Always have your Tim Hortons coffee card ready. Because it’s more Canadian than a credit card. But seriously... just swipe the card between the glass and the seal and the ice will break free from the glass. Easy.

    Tesla Winter Tire Package - Lead-time?

    Update: the Tire Guys did a great job meeting me at a retail parking lot in the service area early in the morning and had my tires done in 20 minutes. Very good service in the end, despite the major communication problems up front.

    Tesla Winter Tire Package - Lead-time?

    I would proceed this way: 1) Email Tesla to request refund and warn them that I’d issue a credit card dispute if not resolved in 72 hours 2) proceed with dispute if no action is taken. Thankfully Andre from the Tire Guys just called me today. He sounds very tired ... I’m sure they are...

    Tesla Winter Tire Package - Lead-time?

    I ordered online and Tesla was fast to confirm and call me back telling me “The Tire Guys” are the outsourced partner for installation. I got one email from them with vague info about how to schedule. I tied to schedule and had problems. I called them numerous times and they have not returned...

    My Mostly Great AWD Model 3 Delivery Experience

    Today I picked up our new Obsidian Metallic Black AWD Model 3. No other options (no AP, no fancy wheels, just the paint upgrade and AWD). Overall AWESOME. Here are a few notes of things we noticed. There are still a few quality control issues Tesla needs to improve. We had these minor...

    AWDs on the way to Canada?!?

    I ordered Obsidian metallic black. Standard wheels and black interior. Others have been getting the same colour as me so I think Tesla basically screwed up on their promise to prioritize owners. I'm pretty annoyed at them. Horrible system.

    AWDs on the way to Canada?!?

    Website shows a Oct 16 delivery appointment now, VIN had disappeared and is now back with no change. No idea if this will actually happen this time.

    3-month waiting anniversary and no end in sight. Anybody else like this?

    Are you an early reservation holder and/or current Tesla owner? For comparison I ordered basically the same car as you, but in obsidian metallic black, and I ordered on June 30. I am a day one reservation holder from 2016 and a current Tesla model S owner. My car is not in my hands yet but is...

    AWDs on the way to Canada?!?

    Hey folks - Can I ask those of you who are near Toronto and have an AWD Model 3 to chime in please? My car was initially scheduled for Sept 26 and keeps getting pushed back. Literally EVERY time (3 times in a row now) I've checked in with my delivery specialist the day the car was supposed to...

    AWDs on the way to Canada?!?

    Those of you picking up AWD non-performance cars, are you all previous owners with early reservations? I’m curious. I have an order for Obsidian Black AWD aero wheels. I have a VIN and originally got an email from “Mandy McBride” in Fremont for a Sept 26 delivery. Then a guy named PK in...

    AWD to be about 6500 cdn plus tax

    Same here - I get a basic text screen telling me that the car is being prioritized to US and employees (same as what happened with RWD). Maybe this isn't coming to Canada as fast as we hoped?
