    Unable to view Dash Cam footage in the car.

    I occasionally get a message that I have a sentry event when parked in a public area. Sometimes I am unable to view the dash cam or sentry footage after that. I can take to drive to a computer an either view the files or find that there are several hundred files. Most of which are 1kB. I Have to...

    Software update 2020.48.26.x update, font size problems

    I have never understood why the games? If they want to spend time working on the software the engineers should give us something useful. I really am disappointed that the model S does not have Traffic Aware Cruise Control as a standard feature. A Toyota Corolla has it! I also found the update...

    Trip Report: Reno, NV (Presidents Day Weekend 2020)

    There is a great Breakfast/Lunch cafe near the Rocklin Tesla store. Venita Rheas has great food at reasonable prices. Just a short walk from the Tesla store.

    Lets talk about lane change assistance and terrible rain sensing wipers

    One thing I have noticed, and it leaves me uneasy, is that the lane change avoidance does not detect the double yellow center lines on on non-divided hwy, and I can even steer into the center barrier or divider on divided hwy's. Seems to be very poor operation that I can steer into a head on...

    Dumbest Tesla Question Thread

    You should have invited her along for the trip. She would have been impressed. (just don't use auto pilot - it freaks out new riders)

    Another Sudden Acceleration

    I thought I had that acceleration too but realized that the brake pedal is so close to the accelerator I sometimes didn't get far enough to the left to avoid pressing both pedals. More conscious of this now. (Old habit from driving standard tranny cars)

    USB music files "loading error"

    I converted a few files from WMA (which worked when I built the USB) to WAV and now can play those converted files. What gives? Why is WMA no longer working?

    Features that should be standard (Not AP)

    I have driven many other vehicles over the years and the Model S I now own is pleasure to drive even without Auto Pilot. In my area which is very rural I felt AP would have been unnecessary. BUT I wonder why Tesla does not have Traffic Aware Cruise Control as a standard feature. Every car made...

    Did your owner's manual disappear?

    I have had this "problem" since the big fall update (ver 9 ?). The owners manual fails to display after a battery charge. I tested this several times and the display fails after any length of charge. Performing a display reboot seems to solve the issue. (Press both scroll wheels at the same...

    The .48* updates haver broken TACC

    So why is it that Tesla cannot have Traffic Aware Cruise Control (TACC) standard on a $100,000 car but it comes standard on a $20,000 Toyota Corolla? Every car I have driven in the last 2-3 years has this feature along with lane departure and collision warnings.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    I have this issue as well as a low frequency rumble from the from end. The rumble is really annoying but the service tech I took for a test ride didn't think it was a problem. I believe the rumble and the rattle are related- the rumble to me indicates a more serious failure in the front...
