    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    I saw a video a while back, motor trend, maybe? Not sure but they ran a plaid on 22s in chill mode till it ran out of juice, and it provided the exact mile tesla said it would. What’s interesting is that the video/review was not at all complimentary towards the S plaid. In 75 degree weather...

    Plaid owners are you still happy with the car?

    Great car knowing it’s not a collector car and just a daily driver. The brakes are adequate but there is a lot of room for improvement when compared to amg, V caddies and M cars, all of which I have owned in the last few years. Over all, I love the car and have no regrets.

    Lease Trade-In Question

    Yes, but in many states you have to eat the taxes. Here in California that would translate to %10

    Autopilont doesn't work?

    U need to give the cameras time to calibrate, that may take a few hundred miles.

    Model S Plaid Brakes Are Terrible!

    It is my only complaint on the car. The brakes are clearly the weak point and not very confidence inspiring. If u push the car, one has to be real careful. Porsche brakes will make ur eyes pop out ur head in contrast.

    Major Yoke concerns from Consumer Reports initial review

    The yoke is a non issue. Like anything else, it take a few days to adapt. people complain that Porsche paddles move with the steering wheel, Ferrari paddles are stationary, the blinkers on 458 and newer Ferrari are also on the steering wheel and there is no stal

    Still calibrating cameras - seems stuck at 97%

    Mine took 500 miles. Now if I pull my hand off the wheel it will alert me as well as highlighting speed signs lanes etc on the display.

    Adapter cables?

    I must say I was shocked that the car was delivered only with the 110 charger adapter, which is practically worthless. at the time of delivery, 14-50 adapters as well as the wall charger we’re sold out online. it Took a couple of days and a few extra bucks to procure them via eBay. I believe...

    Edmunds Review - Teslaraiti follow up. I'm not the only one.

    To me it appears to be modeled after a F1 steering wheel. The guy was exaggerating his movements with the yoke to make a point. Just because he didn’t get the hang of it on test day in the rental model S, does not mean an astute owner with lots of seat time will have the same problem. And one...

    An honest review of the yoke

    i think they were inspired by the F1 steering wheels. i personally like it, though it took a bit to get used to. The guy in the video has a very short shelf life, but made some valid points. Having owned both an M5 and E63s in the last few years, I would put handling at par between the cars...

    Took delivery - poor experience

    we picked up our MS Plaid in Burbank last week. I didn’t expect much based on reading posts here, so it was as I expected. fit and finish was up to par as I was expecting the worst. Service, however, is non existent. Bunch of kids with an indifferent attitude. When inquiring about a 14-50...

    Plaid owners - Tired of Plaid?

    The one uppers always amuse me. For all intents and purposes, the MS Plaid is faster than anything on the road. Having owned multiple exotics for about twenty years now, I can tell you they get very little usage outside of cars and coffe and dinner outings. That’s just the way it is. Chances of...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    I thought the tests were done with different cars. If so, its likely the car and not solely the rim size.
