    Who to contact to truly escalate service issue? 11+ critical features not working for half of ownership….

    I had a problem when I was getting a "reduced power" error. Took multiple service calls before they found the root cause. In my case it was a bad wiring plug. I found that having a relationship with your service contact is helpful. They can schedule appointments for you outside the app. Mine...

    AP wants me to switch to left lane "to follow route" on empty freeway...?

    I have seen this behavior when there is an upcoming entrance ramp. The AP does not like to be in the right lane and have cars merge on to the road in the same lane. It will brake and let those cars merge in front. So it tries to be in the next left lane to let those cars merge. Since it...

    Do Not Understand Tesla Rationale for Why There is No Sirius/XM in Model 3 or Y

    Sirus and XM are OLD technology. With improved and available cellular service around the majority of the country, satellite receivers are not needed. Yes, all OEMs integrated Sirus/XM in their infotainment systems in the 2000s. With most moving to Apple Car Play or Android Auto which do not...

    CA DMV failing Tesla car for behind the wheel drive test

    I can still remember over 50 years ago when I was 16. The big FAIL item on TX DMV test was parallel parking. Everyone had big/long cars. My Dad had a Cadillac also a karmann ghia. So my choice was a BIG/LONG automatic or a small manual trans car. Used the Ghia and no sweat. Passed easily...

    CA DMV failing Tesla car for behind the wheel drive test

    How much does this upset you and your child. If so, fight it. You said you talk to the examiner manager. They backed up the examiner. It won't be in any law. It will be in the DMV procedures. I would contact your state house representative. Also contact the State DMV not the local...

    Dear Elon: just remove navigation from your cars

    I wish we could all use the same terminology. Carplay and Android Auto are the user interface on the car screen that Apple and Google Control. Then there a applications like maps, navigation, music, etc. On most vehicles there is also an underlying native OS that controls many real time items...
