    How long until a Autopilot accident is reported and the potential public backlash?

    At the moment, the opposite is true with data from full autonomous cars. The car is being cautious and proactively brake for other road users, only to get rear-ended by careless driver from behind. With semi-autonomous driving aids, the system will warm you (e.g. visual, auditory or haptic...

    Has the drive unit noise issue been sorted in dual motor MS?

    Can someone please post or link a video to the abnormal drive unit noise? As perspective buyer, this will be greatly appreciated. The drive unit of course makes a noise under heavy acceleration. Is the noise referring to that sound getting louder? Or is it a noise that happens with even...

If you are worried that my username may cause confusion on this forum, feel free to let me know and I will happy to change it with the help of site admin. I also want to take this opportunity...

    Dissing Tesla Reliability

    Keep in mind that it is easier said than done. Also, don't turn off the car as you will lose power steering and brake booster assist. Just pop it in neutral. Yes, there were some people that simply pressed the wrong pedal. Yes, there was at least one idiot in debt trying to create an incident...

    If P90D ludicrious quater mile time is important for you, don't buy it now

    V-Box is very much the industry standard. The days of using the 5th wheels and lasers are long gone. Also Car & Driver publishes a corrected acceleration number, so does MotorTrend. The real world result at the strip is what really counts at the end of the day, or real world driving experience...

    If P90D ludicrious quater mile time is important for you, don't buy it now

    Another way to look at this is that the Ludicrous upgrade might not be as impressive as originally thought. The car has to have a high state of charge and the car has to be in the "ready" state, which does not last for very long. Ludicrous mode simply does not have endurance and not always...

    Dissing Tesla Reliability

    The Tacama truck frame recall was also quite notable, but I was thinking of more recent examples. I am also very convinced that there was in fact a sudden acceleration problem. Some people died, just like the GM ignition.

    Dissing Tesla Reliability

    Look, I have been a really harsh critic of Tesla lately, and I still stand by my opinions. I have also told people to stop drinking the Kool-Aid on this forum, which drove some people nuts. But let's not pretend for a single second that major automotive manufactures don't screw up. The...

    Model X Middle Row Seat Design - possible reason for current design

    The CF wrap works great for this application. You can get a whole 50 or 100 feet roll for reasonable price on eBay. You won't use nearly that much, but it's always have extra material to be safe. You can sell what you don't use after and make a profit even. They also have color ones, so maybe...

    Dissing Tesla Reliability

    Besides statistical bias, let not forget confirmation bias and other factors in play here. The happy Model S owners aren't gonna start a thread every day talking about how happy they are with the product & services. The statistical bias is probably there, however. Tesla shareholders of course...

    Model X Middle Row Seat Design - possible reason for current design

    Great shots. The glossy black plastic seat back is not gonna hold up well to wear and tear though. Plus I think it makes the interior look cheap.

    P85D motor hp controversy starts also to show in U.S. media

    Clearly you have problem comprehending some of the concepts involved. A Dodge Charger Hellcat makes 707 SAE horsepower at the following vehicle speeds, according to FCA. Of course that is 707 HP at the crank. Gear Gear Ratio Final Ratio Overall Ratio Engine RPM KM/H MPH 1st 4.71...

    [Resolved] My P85 has developed the milling noise and Tesla won't fix it.

    Amongst reports from major media outlets, analysts at different institutions, to what's on the Bloomberg terminals, these blogs and posts are just tiny noises not even worth mentioning IMHO.
