    Rear Motor Disabled-Still OK to Drive

    Sorry to hear that. We are now 8 months on and only 3,000 miles more done but no more visits to the service centre for me since that one. The new rear motor works just the same as the old one did. So blisteringly fast. Still I am now doing my weekly day in London again so that's 200 miles a...

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    Well 6 service centre visits and off the road each time in the first 6 months would be hard to beat. Just go sit in a Taycan, then slam the door shut. It feels like granite. Every time I do that in my model S I fear something will fall off. Tesla isn't a plucky upstart that we all have to...

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    It's better only because the fuel is free. Against an advertised 350 miles range I get an average of 260. About the same as a Porsche Taycan (which is much better built). If I didn't have free fuel I would have sold the car 6 months ago, honestly. Won't ever buy another. Unlike my petrol...

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    I am very impressed with all the consumption I read on here... With my 2019 Oct Raven Performance Model S I have a 378 lifetime average. Mixture of motorway (75mph) and short local trips. I don't drive without aircon or heated seats etc because what is the point. That makes my full range 264...

    Full Self Driving Hugs Center Line

    Mine hugs the left hand side of the lane (I am in the UK where we drive on the left). That's great for normal driving. But when you are on a two or three lane road in traffic and are not in the far left lane then you are generally too close to the vehicle on your left. In real life this means...

    Rear Motor Disabled-Still OK to Drive

    2019 built August, delivered October. 8,000 miles. Needed a new rear engine (!). All covered by warranty. I am mad at Tesla as their build quality just isn’t there, coming from an RS6 there is just no comparison. But to be fair to them: I firstly called Dartford service, they were no help...

    Rear Motor Disabled-Still OK to Drive

    I have the same issue. Raven Model S Performance. Was trailered away and now awaiting a new rear motor... Very disappointing. It only got new front drive shafts 3 weeks ago. These are not well built cars.

    Rear motor disabled

    Sorry for the thread resurrection! I have a 7 month old Raven Model S Performance here in the UK. I got into it a couple of mornings ago and got the dreaded Rear Motor Disabled message. It would let me drive in FWD only at slow speeds. No reboots cured it and it was towed away. Tesla got it...

    UK For Sale / Wanted / Free [closed for new items]

    I have the Tesla branded Weathertech throughout the car including the boot. You can simply bend it out of the way to get into the cavity. I have not found it an issue. Because the boot liner one is so massive it is a little more flexible.

    2020.8.1 Another useless update for most of us

    Oh, and summon is now broken too... Car just won't start moving, indicators flash and that's it. Hmmm

    2020.8.1 Another useless update for most of us

    I am in the UK (Raven S Performance) and with this update so far I see: - Traffic lights - Trash bins (lots and lots) - Road arrows I am hoping it fixes the phantom braking on the motorway which is really making it rather unsafe in Autopilot. 75mph down to 50mph for no reason at all is making...

    Anyone ordered a Anderson A2 direct?

    I ordered from them, install was faultless, really nice guy (they usually have their own), no extra charges. Would recommend (and have just bought a second as I like it so much!).

    P100D Energy usage?

    Unless something is loose in the trunk ;-)

    P100D Energy usage?

    I have a Raven Model S Performance (P100DL Raven I guess). Mine is 402 lifetime but 500-ish around town. Maybe I should have mentioned the model earlier ;-) I do have the turbine wheels which I think do not help with consumption.
