About 2 weeks ago, a car ran a red light at full speed and smashed into my Model S which caused a second collision with a large SUV. It happened so fast I didn't even have time to react. Every airbag in the car deployed. As the airbag smoke cleared, my wife and I realized we weren't seriously injured and we both miraculously walked away from...
With the recent allegations by some Tesla drivers on the failure of Autopilot on their cars and the media jumping on those incidents, this is a quick primer for every Tesla driver (including spouses, siblings, sons and daughters) and Laura MacCleery, VP of Consumer Policy and Mobilization for Consumer Reports:
Autopilot by definition is a...
If I ever walk away from this brand, it will be to get as far away as possible from this sort of entitlement mentality.
It’s honestly nauseating
It's been well over 3 years since I took delivery of my Model S and I can honestly say I've had it.
What, specifically, have I had it do?
I've had it change my feeling about cars in a way I haven't felt since I was 16.
I've had it move me around town with energy offset by my rooftop solar.
I've had it introduce me to more like-minded people...
I think people should stop demanding things that we didn’t pay for.
For those of you not paying attention, Tesla isn’t exactly the most healthy of companies. It’s in an extremely risky phase of growth where they are trying to balance rampup, decreasing demand, and margins.
I’ve struggled to think of another customer base that feels entitled...
Everywhere you look and everywhere you hear so much negativity about Tesla. Seems like everyone is predicting it’s demise or whining about a lack of a feature. I’m going on the record to say I just got my model 3 yesterday and so far I love EVERYTHING about it. Panel gaps? Nope! Paint defects? Nope! Scratches on the center console? Nope!...
After what seems like forever, I am finally driving my own Tesla !
Model 3 delivered today.
Just in time for my birthday too !
This past weekend my 17 year old son was planning to attend his senior prom with some friends and asked me if he could PLEASE drive my Model 3. After some consideration and a thorough review of his plans (who will be in the car, where will he be going) I agreed. Before he left I enabled the "Speed Limit" function with my phone and set it to...
I've made it a habit to activate Sentry Mode whenever I'm forced to park near other cars. It looks like it payed off today. I got back from lunch and noticed my passenger side rear bumper corner was scraped. Reviewed the video and clearly see a woman hitting my car. She knows she did it, but didn't make any attempt to leave me a note.
I've put a few miles now on my new-to-me 2016 F80 BMW M3, including a 400 mile trip, and have had my Model 3 for nearly a year--so I thought I'd write down some thoughts.
2016 BMW M3 6M, M Adaptive suspension, 425 hp
2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance dual motor, 475ish hp (incl. 5 percent OTA boost at some point)...
"None of the airbags deployed, not one. How can a front end collision of this magnitude not result in any airbags deploying. "
You're posting about it here. That means the airbags weren't needed.
Airbag deployments aren't cute little pillows of joy that give you a comfortable hug. They are violent events that sometimes kill people. You do...
Don't leave your car at a supercharger if it's not charging, period.
a lawyer will be glad to take you cash and you will lose eve more. You agreed to a price and bought something and you think they owe you? /boggle...
Making lemonade out of lemons. Got hit today by a dude with no license and no insurance. Video here;
You can see that he appeared to decide to hit me. Not sure what the deal was, just very, very glad we were both OK. I went to urgent care after the car was towed for some X-rays, and am chilling at home with ice packs now....
I was driving home from work Friday in my Model 3 performance and thinking how much I loved driving the car. From the way the steering wheel feels in my hand to the effortless and instant power response. That feeling you have when you're stopped at a red light and you know whoever is next to you you can just smoke their ass. :) For anybody...
I was terminated from my role as Sales Advisor in September. My termination was public, the press team made their statement and I wanted to write this post to share the other side of the story.
One of the many reasons I truly enjoyed working with Tesla was because unlike a traditional auto company, Tesla promotes a culture where Sales Advisors...

I don't intend to start a flame war or any political discussion whatsoever. I just want to get this off my chest & get a feel for how many others like me are out there. I can appreciate the arguments around the reduction in fossil fuel usage etc. But for me, personally, that wasn't a primary concern. Maybe I'm overthinking how people view Tesla...
I'm calling BS on this.
You're so devoted that you waited 2+ years after the Model S came out to buy one??
What about all of us who bought the cars before Autopilot? Tesla/Musk didn't do anything for us-- and leasing wasn't even an OPTION back then.
We got exactly the car we paid for--
AS. DID. YOU.
If Tesla wants to do...
