    Many show rooms closing… Now what?

    Sales tax payments are determined by the state in which you take delivery AND the state where the vehicle will be registered. For example - our first Tesla was purchased via a store in MA. It was a Model S inventory vehicle in FL. I explored FL sales tax laws online and found that FL charges...

    Charge stops at 89% instead of 90% and 99% instead of 100% Problem?

    See #1 and #7 at Model X will not charge to set limit to understand our concern.

    Charge stops at 89% instead of 90% and 99% instead of 100% Problem?

    I agree with SilverSp33d3r. 7% to 10% should be fine. Driving in cold weather with heater and heated seats ON will get it down pretty quickly.

    Charge stops at 89% instead of 90% and 99% instead of 100% Problem?

    I would expect it to work with a 240V NEMA. Main thing is to start with low charge, then take it to 100%. Not a good idea to leave it at 100%, so if you can time the charge to finish when you have a drive planned, that is best.

    Model X will not charge to set limit

    I had a scheduled Ranger visit Dec 21, 2018. The appointment was actually to install a replacement part, which, as it turns out, is a shop only operation (ranger should not have been sent for this part replacement [wiring harness], though the error was the fault of Tesla's Ranger scheduler not...

    Scheduling Service Watertown and Dedham Online is a Mess

    I recently had an intermittent problem with my X trunk. As I already had an appointment scheduled for annual service, I made several videos, using my phone, to record the failures. Fortunately, when the service center could not reproduce the failures, I showed my videos, which motivated them to...

    Do you trust the navigation charging schedule?

    In cold weather, do not expect the estimate to be accurate. I'm in NH with a X100D. Last year, left Lincoln, NH Supercharger in very cold weather for roundtrip to Newport, VT. Car said 18% available at end of round trip. I actually had to stop for 1 1/2 hours at a Chargepoint to make it back to...

    Done. Ranger in 2 weeks. Have you heard or read of a similar issue (just wondering what possibilities might be).

    Model X will not charge to set limit

    2017 Model X100D, manufactured June 2017. V 2018.44 641a0dc I was at a Supercharger and set the limit to 95% (prepping for a long drive in COLD NH weather). After two hours, charge terminated, displayed CHARGE COMPLETE, but only had 88%. The last 4% was at 3kw or less. Subsequently, on a...

    Unexpectedly purchasing an M3 for delivery on Tuesday

    Walk in use of referral code not a problem. I purchased Model S in March 2017. In December 2017, wife and I stopped by a service center/sales center. They had a Model X on display. Wife took a seat in it, asked if we could test drive an X. Yes. Returned from the test drive, wife said, "Let's...
