    Is there any downside to Air Suspension?

    Yeah feels like you’re driving a lowered civic. Pro tip: Keep rodents away from your air lines. They’re tasty!

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    It's Tesla in name only. Once you file a claim, you're handed off to another company that processes the claim. They have zero insider information or special access to Tesla. Tesla will handle your repair just as they would any other Tesla owner. The only reason to have Telsa insurance is the...

    Tesla X without FWD Poll

    The ultrasonic sensor puck that's beneath the door panel is attached by an adhesive. When it gets hot, the adhesive melts or becomes soft and the sensor starts getting false readings off of the door panel. It thinks there's something blocking the door when in reality there's nothing there. On...

    Tesla X without FWD Poll

    I would drop the FWD in a heartbeat. My 2019 has been into service 3 times for repairs on the sensor and the technician basically keeps saying, “it’s just a thing that happens in the heat. I would do hundreds of these repairs every summer in Phoenix.” Unfortunately I live in the desert so the...

    Supercharger - Firebaugh, CA (I-5 / West Panoche Rd, LIVE 13 Nov 2020, 56 V3 stalls)

    All the stalls currently installed are the reverse-in type. Didn’t see any that would work for larger vehicles or ones towing trailers.

    Supercharger - Firebaugh, CA (I-5 / West Panoche Rd, LIVE 13 Nov 2020, 56 V3 stalls)

    This is going to stay running for good, right? Could it be operational in some kind of trial mode that may get turned off at any point? I’m going to be driving down the 5 tonight and this is the perfect stopping point. Don’t want to get there only to find it not working.

    P100D X 12V battery dying in a car without any warning?

    I’ve got a mobile service appointment for Sept 8. Going to try and get it into my driveway from work and then just leave it there until the service appointment. For my last service they told me they don’t have loaners at Bakersfield. Which was a lie because when I got there a guy was dropping...

    P100D X 12V battery dying in a car without any warning?

    Same issue here. 11month old MX died without warning twice in 3 days. Seems to randomly reboot itself and come back to life. I left mine at work last night after trying to jumpstart it, just saw the notification on my phone that it came back to life at 3am. Gonna drive it home today and park it...

    Is the insane lack of email responses/customer service I am experiencing common?

    Pretty much the same here. It’s to the point that I can’t even muster up enough fanboyishness to justify a cybertruck let alone convincing my wife to go through the ordering/delivery experience with Tesla again. Only thing going for Tesla right now is the charging network which is a must for us.

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    It’s the main painted part and the black plastic lower one where the air intake is. Luckily the PPF protected the hood.

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    $2531.06 parts and labor for replacing the upper and lower bumper. Haven’t gotten it fixed yet. Need to find a detailer who can do PPF relatively near by the service center.

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    I had a nearly identical incident with my MX. hit the only obstacle in the entire parking lot, a stop sign. From where I was I though it was going to drive around it. Nope, aimed straight for it. Tesla said they would do an investigation and the SC manager would call me back in 8 weeks. Then...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    Ordering/delivery process for a 2019 MX was very stressful mostly due to poor communication from Tesla. Resolving a smart summon related accident during transition from telephone customer service to app only service became impossible and still hasn’t been resolved. Recent service visit at...

    Model Y vs X

    If you don’t need a 3rd row, the Y has a huge advantage in not having the falcon wing doors. Just drove 2 hours to the nearest service center to get the ultrasonic FWD sensor fixed only to have the new one start acting up on the drive home. Mechanic was just like “they’ve been like that since...
