    Sold my Model 3 after 3 years. Cost of ownership.

    Just hit 30K miles in our 2019 M3. I guess we've saved $300-$500 on the 7-10 oil changes we didn't get. Biggest outside expense so far has been wiper fluid- have had to fill it up 3 times now.

    Blog Hertz Places $4.2 Billion Order with Tesla

    I dunno, I see a lot of women and older people in M3s, including my wife, who keeps it in chill mode. Good thing I don't drive it much or it would be dead by now. I think the powerful regen is the only reason I haven't gotten a ticket yet. Met a friend of a friend the other day who has a Dual...

    Blog Hertz Places $4.2 Billion Order with Tesla

    I mean, really. I drove a Camry and an M3 yesterday. There's kind of a big difference.

    Blog Hertz Places $4.2 Billion Order with Tesla

    Same as any rental. I knew a guy who worked for one of the rental companies, and said customers could never be as hard on the cars as the employees are. They had a car wash that was half a level below the parking lot, with a ramp going up to parking lot level when they came out of the car wash...

    Auto phone key not working

    Struggling with a similar situation right now. Re: >>"Delete the phone as key from your car and set it up again." How do I do that? Don't want to lose my driver profile... I got the phone key working, but I can;t get the car to bring up my driver profile so I can get in (my wife has the seat...

    Iphone 12 won't unlock my Model 3 but does auto lock on walk away.

    I have a 2019 M3 with v10.2 (2021.32.21) and a new iPhone 12 with 14.4.1. This is my wife's commuter car, and (tragically) I only drive it 5% of the time. Since I got the new phone a month ago, I was able to unlock the car with the app, but not drive it. The car recognized the phone because the...

    You can't tell the difference between a Camry and a Model 3? Okay.

    How do we navigate to multiple stops?

    My wife is on her first multi-state road trip in our 2019 M3SR. She is using the touchscreen for navigation, not an app. From her texts just now: ------------------------------------- Here’s the basic challenge: I can navigate to Richmond, but I can’t navigate to Dayton with a stop in Richmond...

    Stolen key card

    Thank you! Ended up calling my local service center and got through, which doesn’t always happen. The guy was very helpful and walked me through the steps that Tranquil Rage laid out – thank you. And indeed, I did have to swipe my wife’s card to deactivate my missing card, halfway thinking I was...

    Stolen key card

    I lost my wallet a week ago and apparently it was found by a national crime syndicate, with fraud attempts made on my cards in multiple states. I shut all those down, but my Tesla key card is still out there. They also know where I live, thanks to my drivers license. If I go to the dealer with...

    Model 3 approaches Camry levels

    I saw a canary yellow Model 3 the other day, Chicago area. Safe to assume it was a wrap? Looked pretty good. High viz for safety.

    Will Future Teslas Have Lasers For Wipers, Among Other Patented Innovations?

    Thanks, Hank Lloyd Right, for all that good info. So much for my theory of getting free Lasik for my nearsightedness by occupying window seats on Southwest flights. I grew up in a prairie-style FLW house, btw. The guy's focus on curating exactly how one feels when entering a room or occupying a...

    Will Future Teslas Have Lasers For Wipers, Among Other Patented Innovations?

    ...and couldn't the laser be reflected off the windshield and endanger others? While I have an expert on the line... Last year I was on a Southwest flight coming in to land at Midway in Chicago- Midway sits among dense residential neighborhoods. It was nighttime and it was Christmastime and I...
