    Supercharger - Columbia, MO - W Broadway

    It seems to be a much more appealing location for grabbing a meal or otherwise productively spending time while charging.

    I have never noticed that particular problem. I have always had vampire drain, but very rarely if ever leave the car with the battery above 80%.

    That's very discouraging. Sorry for your sake of course, but it also means it can still be in the future for any of us, and Tesla has still not presented a viable battery replacement option. Possibly your situation could yet be leading to Tesla replacing your battery. That would be good news indeed.

    Sorry, I hadn't been paying attention anymore, just unplugged and drove off, but realized when I got to the grocery store 4 miles away I seemed to have more range than I usually had started off with. I parked in front of the house for a few days without charging, enjoying the increased vampire...

    I have pretty much confirmed that my very soon to be 8 year old P85 has within the last month returned to reporting nearly the range capacity it did prior to batterygate. I first noticed what seemed higher range than I had been getting on regular charging, so I set it to 80% and noted that yes...

    I didn't. Tesla found the brake problem and fixed it during an annual service. Then my Watts per mile usage dropped significantly.

    I keep looking forward to there being enough experience data so we can all know what to expect for real-world battery life. When I first purchased I knew this was a big experiment and was prepared for much worse. It seemed that range was holding up remarkably well over years, then with one...

    We know what they think is reasonable, the new warranties say 70% retention over 8 years.

    Entirely at Tesla's whim, whatever mood Elon is in today.

    Yep, been setting charging to 100% and enjoying my meal and/or shopping though all of this because I never get past 97% :rolleyes:

    Exactly. You don't know.

    And which of those cars had essential parts that had to be registered to the master computer with support of the manufacturer for full functionality?

    Tesla does not support that. Tesla disavows and restricts those cars. At this point Tesla offers no plan or endorsement for continued use of their vehicles after the original battery has worn out. We will soon be beginning to find out what the practical extent of that utility will be. We've...

    The only problem I had, and I suspect most here had, with accepting your simple truths is that you never gave them to us. Tesla still hasn't come forth with them. I don't know about every one else here, but I would have been satisfied with a notification and promise of progress reports from...

    WOW! Explaining the fires is an order of magnitude more significant than our battery gimping. Where and when are you going to? Far, far more important, when is Tesla going to?
