    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    Fair point. Here are the facts. I started with a Chevy Volt and was quoted price “X.” I told them my lease was ending and I was looking at a Toyota Camry, and was told that it would remain price “X.” I then drove into the lot with my Tesla M3 and was told, “we cannot honor Price X.” Clear...

    Supercharger: Plainview, NY (Long Island)

    While you would think the inconvenience of charging at a supercharger would deter those looking for free supercharging, it clearly does not. Most chargers in Plainview are the S’s and X’s, but yes there are Model 3s there too. I would also think that Tesla’s warnings that using the...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    If the garage doesn’t back down, I plan on taking the complaint to the NYS DEC, the NYC Dept of consumer affairs and the Mayor’s Office. While I’m a cynic like most and believe that politicians and political agencies may not truly have a heartfelt concern about the Enviornmental objectives that...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    Maybe you misread my initial post? No one is suggesting I am looking for a "bargain," just looking to be treated the same as the next guy at the very least. The reality is that those of us who work in big cities have to deal with this nonsense and there's no reason we should just roll over and...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    Thanks for the tip! To be clear, I'm not looking for a place to supercharge, and these places I am pricing parking don't offer supercharging, they just charge more when they hear "Tesla" for no specified reason when quoting monthly rates.

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    I am a lawyer, and honestly I’m not sure because it’s not my area of expertise. I do believe there are various price gouging laws on the books, but I don’t know if any of them permit an individual to bring a course of action, or needs to be filed by a state or city official. And I’ve been...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    California government is much more progressive and concerned about the environment as far as everything I have seen. Here in NY those of us who try to be environmentally conscious have some support, but much less than in CA for sure. It's a situation begging for a lawsuit honestly. There is no...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    I'm talking about monthlies. Yes park wiz is great for a daily park and it avoids your being gouged, which makes it all the more obvious that they are just overcharging Tesla owners. When you park with parkwiz it's either a standard sized car rate or oversized, that's it, if I recall.

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    I think I'm going for these garages where it hurts. I'm going to file a complaint with the state and see if I can drum up some bad press for their gouging. It seems counterintuitive to penalize drivers who are environmentally conscious. If anyone else has a similar experience you can message...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    It's easy to say that the onus is on the consumer, but literally every garage in NY is doing it and getting away with it because no one as the luxury of saying no because there is no option but to be gouged or don't garage your Tesla in NYC (or of course not buy a Tesla and get a polluting car...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    It makes sense (at least it's arguable) when a car is a different size and therefore costs the garage company more space to store it, but it is just plain gouging when they bill more for a car that is the same size or smaller than a car that they would bill a fair price to garage. You can bring...
