    2018 Model 3 Warranty Coverage for Wheel Bearing.

    Hi, I have checked everywhere online but am not getting a clear cut answer, hence asking here. Does the four year warranty cover wheel bearing replacement/repairs? My 2018 Model-3 has an audible whirling/whining (like a turbo starting) noise from front left wheel when I drive, the noise gets...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Hello, I have been observing a steady 'drop' in my 2018 Model3 (LR) battery charging numbers since past more than six months. I always keep the battery at 80% charging capacity, only when I plan to travel for vacation I put it to 100% charging, don't take that many long distance breaks...

    Getting "Charge Rate Reduced- Wall Plug Temperature High"

    I borrowed my friend's MC and it's not throwing the error while charging, but when I switch it back to mine, it gives the same error. So, I presume that it might be my MC that may have issues. Have opened a Service ticket with Tesla's dealer near me. Will keep you all updated, thanks a lot for...

    Getting "Charge Rate Reduced- Wall Plug Temperature High"

    So, it started happening for you since past month too? Does it mean, there's some issue going on with the software upgrade that's making these 'mc's go bad or flag as bad??

    Is the mobile charging unit we get with the car covered under it's four year warranty?

    Getting "Charge Rate Reduced- Wall Plug Temperature High"

    Sounds like a good idea... did anyone get a positive feedback from them. The last thing I want them is to shrug it off as they do for such tickets.

    Getting "Charge Rate Reduced- Wall Plug Temperature High"

    Yes, so did mine too. I started seeing this issue since past one month. I usually keep the car plugged in at night hence didn't see any difference. But drove a lot yesterday and had to get the car recharged over 150 miles last night, that's when I saw this error, it was same a few weeks back too.

    Getting "Charge Rate Reduced- Wall Plug Temperature High"

    I did remove the MC plug from the wall and felt the pins, they were cool to touch not even warm. So, I knew that it's not the outlet unit on the wall. Is the MC covered under the car's four year warranty? If so, then I can get it replaced, else it's for $500. :-(

    Getting "Charge Rate Reduced- Wall Plug Temperature High"

    Have been getting this error message from past one month now. I own a 2018 Model-3 model and didn't get this error in any season to rule out hot temperatures in the garage, hence am a bit worried about it. Due to that the overall charging has gone down to 13miles per hour from 28 miles per hour...

    12v battery issue, Tesla unsatisfactory response

    Aren't the 12V batteries usually under at-least a three years warranty? Doesn't Tesla offer the same warranty on the 12V batteries that come with the car?

    "Disappearing" Windshield Wiper Fluid [Update: passenger side wiper hose was not connected]

    100 ml is a rough estimate, it can be + -. There is no hole in the pipes, didn't see any fluid in & around the pipes nor there is any fluid on the garage floor where the car's parked most of the time, especially now that am not driving it much due to COVID, thanks.

    How long do you plan to keep your Model 3?

    I own a 2018 (Sept delivered) Model-3, and plan to keep it at-least for 10 years, by then hopefully can pass it onto my kids. Also, as the battery is covered for 8 years, if Tesla comes up with a 400+ miles battery by then, I might plan to swap it (hopefully it's as easy as swapping batteries in...

    Is it only me or happens with any one else?

    Hello, Is it me or happens with other Model-3 owners too? I usually park my Model-3 far end of the parking lot, still see someone parked right next to me when I return back from my shopping. Even if there are other parking spots, still they want to park right next to my car. Just an...
