    This will happen more frequently over time. Go to SC immediately.

    Vehicle stops while driving... PRND turns red

    appreciate your input. However, I received a confirmation from Tesla Service Center at South Korea that DU and main battery have problem. worst nightmare ever.

    Don't bring your car to oversea from the US, my car is dead

    Hi, Due to my military order, I brought the 2015 Model S to South Korea. Although many features of cars do not work, I enjoyed driving it for a year. However, terrible things happened to the car. The car losing its power and control while driving. It becomes more frequent, and I stopped...

    Vehicle stops while driving... PRND turns red

    Hi my car is 2015 85. recently replaced eMMc with recall. Starting about week ago, car suddenly stops while PRND turns into red. And today this happens while I was driving highway. I was turning on AC because it felt so weak. Suddenly this happens and car stops driving. I have to wait for...

    South Korea

    Nah. It's not honored. Closest Supercharger near Camp Humphreys is at CheonAn, which is roughly about 20-30 minutes away. Humphreys has multiple ev chargers there though.

    South Korea

    Here's my experience driving old MS shipped from the States in the Korea as a DoD personnel. Centerscreen becomes complete useless. Google map does not work in the Korea. The only way that you can use is by connecting HotSpot from Egg or your cellphone so that your location can be shown in...

    South Korea

    You can definitely ship back to US, however the tax will hit you pretty hard unless you move back with the military/DoD status (in this case, you will get it for free shipping). As long as US tesla service center changes the MCU with the US spec, it should be fine.

    South Korea

    Well, eventually they will lose the incentive (it is not tax incentive btw). Yes, I agree though. I would have purchased the M3 in SK instead of shipping my car if I were eligible for the incentive.

    Acceleration Upgrade not available in SK?

    A lot of time, South Korea is behind the progress that N.A. And Canada have.

    South Korea

    Starting July 2020, South Korea government heavily increased the charging fee of the EV. Some of them were tripled lol. I don't see how this makes people leaning toward EV instead of cheap hybrid cars. I purchased Chademo from tesla.com ($450 + tax). I know that Chademo adapter is the best...

    Just purchased Chamemo Adapter today. It is one of the most important adapters to bring into Korea with Tesla. woot woot!

    Ordering Tesla in South Korea, Anyone?

    I concur with this. It is one of the most popular foreign car in Korea currently.

    Ordering Tesla in South Korea, Anyone?

    I forgot about SOFA status, haha. Home charger is not rare but challenging sometimes. Unless you will live at the house with the garage, you must accommodate with the apartment complex. I seriously have no clue what you are trying to say.

    Ordering Tesla in South Korea, Anyone?

    Shipping is not the only charge that you will face. 관세 will be a huge chunk of money that you must face as well. Make sure to double check.

    lovely! You sound like having so much fun there ;)

    South Korea

    It seems like many of you are at Korea driving Tesla. Great to hear! I have joined Korean Tesla Owners Club since 2018, and it's been very helpful understanding of Tesla in Korean culture. Right now because of free SC and idle fee, too many owners have abused SC (i.e., leaving the car for the...

    South Korea

    I talked to Tina C. in email. She gave me a brief detail of her experience. However, the biggest huddle for me is... NO FUXXing Tesla employees answering my phone calls and emails!!! I am getting order pretty soon, and I should try to approach them more aggressively. Also, I am still not sure...

    Subsidies for Foreigners and Car Loans

    Just placed CPO 2015 85 model

    Since March 2019, I had numerous service center visits again. Some remarks were... January 2020, Replaced entire tire sets. I did not know, but Tesla Used vehicles did not have fresh new tires at the time of sale. I purchased OEM Goodyear tire set from DiscountTire. February 2020, the driver...

    Just placed CPO 2015 85 model

    sorry for 15 months late response, hehe. AP2 and beyond are continuously evolving, providing better features while AP1 stays same.

    South Korea

    That's something that i did not know. I also thought of purchasing M3 or MY at Korea with the incentive. Sad that I won't be eligible. According to Tina C., SOFA EV does get blue plate. That's unfortunate.

    South Korea

    I see lots of folks here getting Tesla from S. Korea. Sounds like I'm one of the very few who actually will ship the car to Korea through SOFA status. Anyways, I hope to see you guys at S. Korea once I get here!

    Model S standard and performance just got reduced by 5k

    Model S and X for below 80k, and even 2k reduction of Model 3. Wow, Tesla is getting more affordable to destroy the competition!

    South Korea

    Hi, everyone. I'm almost on the same boat with Tina C. I will eventually move to S.Korea with SOFA status as well (haven't had a final offer yet though) I purchased my car in Nov 2018, and still have a warranty until Oct 2022. I thought the warranty would be voided but thanks to Tina C.!!! I am...

    Model S85D slow at supercharger

    My routine NY trip usually cost less than 10 hours including charging time. Now it takes longer than 11-12 hours due to the horrible charging time. I am quite shocked that the throttling is real. Seriously thinking about buying ICE (Hybrid or PHEV) for the long-range trip.

    My Model S was destroyed by hail (no kidding), so I need to buy another car

    Were you able to claim the damage from the insurance?

    2014 Tesla Model S 85 - Build Thread

    Wow, such a nice log of your car! I enjoyed reading your Tesla diary. I had a US roundabout road trip with 2014 Prius, and it was painful driving all the way. I'm absolutely sure that you would enjoy having road trip with autopilot. How is your supercharging speed? I've seen too many (including...

    Superchargers slowing

    Well, in my case, SC charging speed is pretty constant ( I do lots of long-range trips). Since August of last year, my charging time from 20-80 has reduced from 30 minutes to 50-60 minutes. As a result, my long-distance trip time has significantly increased. It's frustrating, and I feel like I...

    Elon confirmed addressing my biggest Tesla software deficiency: Tight Parking/360 view

    360 view is like a life changer in my view. I wish for Tesla to have this feature asap.

    No Loaners at Tesla Service "Bring back the LOANER CARS!!!!"

    Raleigh, NC Service center seems like having a shortage of loaners for sure. I recently got two Uber credits as well. I know SC folks are doing their best job, but Tesla needs to do a better job for SC.
