    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I've had my Atlanta pickup VIN for a while now. Slips a day every day. Currently saying May10-14th but SA says not before the 15th due to charge port. VIN 235XXX Note: This car was ordered November 22nd, 2021. So we are approaching 6 months. I wasn't in a hurry as I was driving a 2021...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    And another update. Now showing April 22nd - May 27th... If it slips to May, that will be six months since I ordered it. Still in no hurry as I already have a M3 but man....

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Just another data point for the group: I have a 2021 M3LR-Red. I love it! In November (11/22/21), I ordered another one exactly like it thinking the BBB EV tax credit was going to pass and I could sell the one I just bought and get a new car for less money... Original EDD was 1/31/22...

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    The car is back home! I haven't driven it much but everything seems fine now. That's 13 days from break down to delivered back to my driveway. I work with very complex machinery for a living and can say that complex things tend to break early in their life so I'm fairly tolerant of this...

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    Just wanted to give another update: They are now telling me that they have the new drive unit and are installing this afternoon and tomorrow! They said they would deliver the car back to me (200 miles away) when it is complete. Hopefully that will be this weekend or early next week. So if...

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    How long is that? Days? Weeks? Months? I'm trying to figure out what to expect. There is no communication. They ignore my questions on the app. And the app is all there is. Really not a good company IMO. If I ever get it back, I'll probably sell it and get something else. I don't want...

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    Update: I'm feeling completely let down by Tesla. They have had my car since last Tuesday (eight days). The rear drive unit is "back ordered" with no ETA. My car has 748 miles on it. I have not made the first payment yet. I have not registered it yet. And Tesla has no idea when or if...

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    Progress! They have finally started to communicate with me (after 3 days). The car has been looked at and needs a new rear drive unit. They offered a rental but it would be a standard chevy POS type rental and I have no interest in that (but that's my choice). We'll see how long it takes now...

    M3 - Issues/Complains (what I wish I had known before buying thread)

    Tesla has zero presence in Birmingham. Prohibited by some BS law I guess. So the car is in Atlanta. Which is apparently way under capacity for the number of cars they have to service.

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    Update: They have finally at least scanned the car in which created a service item on the app. The communication I got was a message that they are too busy to look at it. No idea when it will be diagnosed, parts ordered or fixed. No attempt to provide alternate transportation. Or even say...

    M3 - Issues/Complains (what I wish I had known before buying thread)

    I realize that I was unlucky, but here's what I wish I understood before I purchased: 1. These cars absolutely break down. Any notion that they are "maintenance free" is fantasy. My M3 is the only car I have ever owned that stranded me. 2. Tesla has expanded production MUCH faster then...

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Well, two days ago.. Haven't seen or heard from it since. No idea where it is...

    Brand New M3.... Towed away today

    And there in lies the problem. Call who, exactly? The service center? That number takes you to phone tree. The person who you ultimately talk to on the phone tree is not at the service center. All they can do is email the service center and try and get them to call me. They don't call me...
