Separate names with a comma.
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...
So, I just finished some initial testing of my latest modification to the yellow P85 (the one that has retrofitted autopilot hardware). Haven't gotten a lot of pics or videos together yet (roads have been wet from melting snow, so not great conditions for testing), but I can't resist sharing some initial details.
So far the car is a ~570HP...
Over the past month or so I'd been doing some photoshops of the Model 3 in different colors in one of the threads here. Someone suggested we make a downloadable brochure with only the official Tesla colors. It seemed others liked the idea as well. I went ahead and thought it might be a decent idea to put a website together for this...
I appreciate all the expressions of sympathy. I did not have rear-facing trunk seats. My daughters were in the normal second row, with their seat belts on. At the time of the accident, my car was stopped on the freeway (as was the traffic ahead of me). I believe the car that rear-ended me was traveling at roughly normal highway speeds.
"Leave Tesla Alone"
"It's possible to walk into a dealership and buy a car that drives itself on the freeway about as safely as you would if you were driving the thing. That car also doesn't use gasoline. And it's as fast in the quarter-mile as a Corvette Stingray. The future is here, as William Gibson once said; it's just unevenly...
Based on your input, we have decided to remove all software performance reductions tied to frequent max power usage. These changes will roll out with our next software update (in about three weeks).
We had put these reductions in place to proactively protect the powertrain from wear and tear. Instead, we will monitor the...
Hi everyone –
This week, the service team hit a global customer service satisfaction record. The team has done a fantastic job on what we control currently: our own service centers. We’re now turning our efforts on the centers we don’t control: accident repairs in body shops.
The body shop in the OP article did not begin repairs on the...
UPDATE, FIRST DRIVE!
Extremely uneventful, but needless to say this is the first time the car has driven under its own power in the 10 months since I've had it. The car was declared a complete loss approximately one year ago. And here she is in all her naked glory.
Also, my younger daughter, who was killed in the crash, was 10 years old, and about to start 6th grade in middle school next Monday.
Just wanted to leave a little note out here, perhaps encouraging the masses that are waiting for the model 3 or maybe to those that are waiting for an affordable Model S. I received my Model S today. After 10 years of carefully following Tesla Motors and drooling over this car, listening to 3 podcasts a week, reading electrek.co, teslarati,...
Just got home from a bucket list road trip in my P100D. Spent 1 month circumnavigating the lower 48 visiting friends, family and interesting places. Car performed flawlessly, driver and road conditions less so. General comments: Never any range anxiety, often bladder anxiety. Only waited once for a supercharger, 5 minutes in Rapid City due to...
December 8th will be our three year anniversary. A most happy anniversary at that!
Ownership came to be through a confluence of events. We were happy Jeep owners but our second one was on its last legs after 150K+ miles so we were already new car shopping. We weren’t happy with the 20 mpg SUV’s were getting and began looking at hybrids –...
Hoping my wife will see this video as I've been hinting at something for a few weeks now.
The election year puts me in a fact checking mood, and I'm a glutton for calling people out. Sorry not sorry.
Doesn't have a Tesla

Suddenly has a Tesla Model S and a Prius (both hatch backs - keep that in mind for next post)
Has an S again
Never owned another American car - So no Tesla
A porshe or model...
This is so sad. They are our neighbors. He's a great guy, active in the school board. The 13 year old sister is in critical condition. She is a classmate and friend of my son. When they were in first grade, she was his "girlfriend".
Furious that someone would DUI, particularly at 9:30am.
Give those that you love a hug.
GREAT NEWS you guys!
They rescued this beautiful kitten that had been trapped in my Model X's rear bumper for probably over 14 hours, gave her water right away, AND one of the rescuers and his family offered to provide her with a new loving home :-)
WHAT a day :)
Thursday evening my friend and I were driving home from Berkeley, CA to the Oakland hills on grizzly peak blvd. Driving perhaps a tad too spirited, a deer appeared at a curve at the worst possible moment. I instinctively (mistakenly) swerved to avoid it and my car ended up over the edge. We tumbled perhaps 150-200 feet down a steep slope, ended...
This just came home from school with my daughter.
It happened last Friday afternoon when I drove to Pocono for the weekend. I was on Autopilot driving eastbound on I-78 (a 2-lane divided highway with grass median) near Allentown, a normal traffic flow at 65-70 mph on a 55mph zone. All of a sudden, my MX braked very hard with some rapid beeping sounds, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee in front of me...
