    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    Same call and I also refused. I have a P85D Ludicrous ... my primary complaint about it is range, so it's kinda pointless to upgrade to the "Plaid" and not just wait for the "Plaid+". As other said, it also means there will be time for the bugs to be worked out first, too. Also, as far as...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    I just got an update from Tesla -- Apparently, the eMMC didn't fail, but rather, the filesystem was 100% full, and as a result, some databases got corrupted and required the MCU to be reformatted and factory reset -- but didn't require a hardware replacement. Pretty absurd failure in any event...

    Software updates

    You've got to keep in mind the company priorities. The programmers seem to be far more interested in doing important things like making "Fart Mode" more accessible, and improving gameplay in Backgammon. Trivial things like "Does the update brick your MCU?" or "Does the update cause the car...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    I've got a December 2014 P85D (with Ludicrous upgrade). My MCU1 just failed, for the second time. Fortunately I have the Extended Service Agreement. The previous time it was replaced I think in 2018. I was pretty disappointed at the time that I was made to wait several weeks, and it was...

    Car alarm during update

    My alarm went off too. I live in a very quiet neighborhood, so I am sure my neighbors appreciated it. Thankfully I started the upgrade immediately after getting home and didn’t let it auto update at 5am, so at least I hadn’t gone to sleep yet.

    P85D & P90D - 2019.20.1 Firmware

    No. I did a full reboot (power car off for three minutes). I reported it to Tesla, who is trying to do remote diagnostics.

    P85D & P90D - 2019.20.1 Firmware

    I don’t know if it’s related to this firmware, but on my first drive after the upgrade I was treated with this.

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    Stuff like this, IMHO, is part of why Tesla is struggling to be profitable. Don't you think experiences like this weigh in on decisions when Tesla sends out emails suggesting trading the car in and buying another? Tesla doesn't need to sell their cars to a thousand hardcore fans -- they need to...

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    Sure, it is an option, and yes, I can and might do that... But it doesn't change the fact that Tesla is not providing service anywhere near comparable to what you might expect for a >$100k BMW, Mercedes, or Porsche.

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    It’s a four hour drive each way... plus charging time.

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    Do you know for sure that this is actually possible?

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    Right, this is what Tesla says happened to my car based on their remote diagnostics.

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    I don’t have the loaner yet. Appointment should be for Thursday, but I asked the question in advance because I know that normally the language on the loaner agreement says that you have to return the car within 24 hours of the repair being completed, which wouldn’t be possible if I am in Miami...

    Master Charger failed, part not in stock, Tesla dropping the ball on a Loaner

    Hi all, I have a 2014 Model S P85D, with the 4 year Extended Service Agreement. I have a HPWC at home, and only use the Superchargers when on road trips. Last week, on my way back home (near Orlando) from Miami/Palm Beach, I was unable to charge at the Supercharger (hung on "Starting to...

    WORKING SUPERCHARGERS IN FLORIDA? PLEASE POST HERE!

    Just as a suggestion, this thread should also mention the status of superchargers in Georgia and South Carolina as well, as there were also many outages in those places. For example, I would assume Kingsland, GA is another one which might be out of service (I haven't checked and don't know for...
