    Malfunction Tesla App in Android 10

    I called the service department in Peabody and told them about the improperly functioning Tesla app. They kindly checked my service record there, made some changes and thereafter the app started working perfectly.

    Malfunction Tesla App in Android 10

    I am trying to schedule an appointment for car repair. However, the only repair facility that is available on my app is a service center in North Carolina. I would like to choose the repair facility in Peabody, MA. Do you know the settings to make the Tesla App work properly?

    Is Tesla service deteriorating as they scale??

    I realize that these complaints are valid complaints. However I believe the picture that they paint about Tesla in general is not valid. Most Tesla owners experience excellent service at the Tesla service centers and with Mobile service. That certainly has been my experience.

    Tire replacement time.

    Same here. Have driven only in chill mode at medium height. Wheels aligned last year. My 275/45R-20 Continental Contisilent XL rear tires have only lasted 16,000 miles. Am looking for suggestions for long lasting tires.

    German Court Orders Tesla to Stop Clearing Land at New Factory Site

    Oh my god, no. Germany has access to so many highly skilled German engineers. Not saying German engineers are better, just mean to say that there more of them in Germany. Also Germany has a highly skilled, experienced workforce dealing with export issues.

    What other car manufacturer on the planet does this?

    I agree that Tesla bends over backwards to help when it can. I have had them drive 120 miles to my house, bring me a loaner, repair my car and later bring it back. One must consider however, that with so many cars on the road now, glitches will occur. Several months ago, I had a flat at...

    12V battery warning and software update

    One month ago a message appeared in my Model X that stated: 12V Battery Needs Service. Replace 12V battery soon. New England Tesla Mobile Service notified me that these 12V batteries are on back order. Tesla Service in Dedham, MA informed me that they do not have these batteries either. Does...

    Early failure of rear tires

    Can you tell me where you had bought the lowering links and where they were installed? I did take the car back to Tesla and they told me the alignment is fine. I have also heard that the camber on the back wheels cannot be adjusted on a Performance Model X. Only the toe in - toe out can be...

    Registration fees in New Hampshire

    Right. Dealers don't know much about maintaining EVs. If they do, they know that it costs much less to maintain EVs and therefore they will have much less income from Evs over the years. Also, there a number of adjustments that EV drivers make. Learning about all of the aspects of an EV takes...

    Thank you very much for these very helpful links.

    Early failure of rear tires

    Hmm, I had the camber checked while the car was in low. Are you saying the camber in the back cannot be adjusted to allow my tires to last longer than 16,000 miles?

    Early failure of rear tires

    On 3-23-2018, at 29,837 miles, I purchased new rear tires from Tesla. The purchased tires were 275/45 R20 110V A/S Continental CrossContact LX Sport tires. The purchased tires were installed at a Tesla Repair facility and a 4 wheel alignment was performed at that time. Last week, at 46,326...

    When did AP gain your trust?

    Agree wholeheartedly that one has to be careful. I have driven about 30,000 miles with Autosteer. During that time I have had 2 near misses. Once when I driving in the passing lane and it was raining, the car suddenly veered left toward the barrier at the edge of the lane. On another occasion...

    V9 - need two USB drives for MP3 play & Cam

    Since you have the music in a lossless format, find a utility to convert your files to .flac files. The .flac files are also lossless, play beautifully in the Tesla and sound better than .mp3 files.
