    Hole Under Car from Object in Road

    Tesla Service confirmed that just the Aero Shield is damaged and needs to be replaced. I'll be replacing it with the MPP Front Motor Shield, that's scheduled to be delivered on Monday. Thanks again for all the advice you all shared.

    Hole Under Car from Object in Road

    Got it. After reading up on the Front Motor Shield, I came to that same conclusion and I'm ordering the shield now. I still feel like I should take it to Tesla Service to have them confirm there's no other internal damage beyond just cosmetic.

    Hole Under Car from Object in Road

    Thank you both for the informative replies. Hopefully it is indeed just cosmetic and a plastic part needs replacing. I think I'd at least want them to look at it to confirm that's all it is. So I'd probably just have them swap it out while they have it if it's not a fortune. I was fortunate...

    Hole Under Car from Object in Road

    I was in a turn lane with vehicles all around me when I suddenly came on an object in the road that I couldn't avoid driving over. It looked to be a piece of a wooden fence post - roughly 4"x4"x1'. I pulled over and found at least cosmetic damage, but the car drove fine for the remaining ~5...

    What did you sell/trade for your 3?

    Recalled Chevy Bolt EV that GM bought back from me. I loved the car - more specifically the benefits of electric - and was bummed about the new safety concerns and restrictions, but this was far and away a blessing in disguise. Major upgrade!

    Help! New Model 3 SR+ LFP Won't Charge

    I got my car back on Saturday. They replaced the charge port and it's been charging fine since, knock-on-wood! Thanks again to everybody who tried to help.

    Help! New Model 3 SR+ LFP Won't Charge

    The appointment confirmation said they estimated 2-3 hours for the work. I followed the instructions they provided for what to do upon arrival. A couple hours later I asked if they had any idea how much longer it would be. They hadn't even seen I had arrived (even though I did exactly what...

    Help! New Model 3 SR+ LFP Won't Charge

    Thanks everybody. Just tried rescheduling my appointment and there was an opening for Tuesday. That works for me. I can't get there Monday anyway. And I have enough charge for my driving on Monday and getting there on Tuesday. I'll post an update after then.

    Help! New Model 3 SR+ LFP Won't Charge

    Very, very helpful. Wouldn't have thought of that. Just scheduled an appointment and at least got a little luckier with 10/6 than what I was seeing before. I'll try calling too. Thank you.

    Help! New Model 3 SR+ LFP Won't Charge

    I've had the car just under 3 weeks and been charging it just about daily with a JuiceBoxPro (that I used with my Bolt for just under 3 years) and the J1772 adapter that came with the car. A couple times it's given me a warning that the charger wasn't properly connected, but it immediately...

    The future is now? [model 3 new owner review]

    I just picked up my M3 on Monday. I couldn't agree more. Even coming from another electric - 2019 Bolt EV - Tesla is in a league of its own. I watched a bunch of videos and read forum posts while waiting to pick up the vehicle. I showed up for pickup, a little nervous about what problems I'd...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    OMG! Finishing up a Bolt buyback because of the recall - packet due to the dealership on Saturday. I pretty much made up my mind on the 3 SR+, but planned to look at the Y tomorrow just to be certain. Saw the exact 3 SR+ I want in local inventory and pulled the trigger figuring it would still...

    Any Advice before Ordering?

    OMG!!!!!!! Saw a Model 3SR+ show up in local inventory and figured I'd snag it in hopes to speed things up from January to maybe a couple weeks/months from now. And if I change my mind to the Y, so be it (though I doubt that would happen). My EDD is between today and Sunday!! And I probably...

    Any Advice before Ordering?

    Very helpful! Thank you for all this info!! Lucky for me, I have some flexibility. And I understand there will be a wait. So I wouldn't say I'll be disappointed. Anxious yes, but worth the wait. My Bolt buyback will be complete next week. I have my old ICE car to get me by until the Tesla...

    Any Advice before Ordering?

    About to finalize mine. My paperwork and check is on its way to the dealership and arriving Saturday. Start to finish is about 2 months for me. I plan to order the Tesla by Monday after one more visit to compare the Y and 3. Can't wait!
