    Anyone carry an emergency 12V tire compressor to allow to drive to a garage station to get a flat repaired.

    Bought a $35.00 12V compressor at Harbor Freight a few days after I got the car. Used many times to top-up tires, works perfectly. Yes it will do 45 psi. Compressor and plug kit = cheap insurance. And a can of "Fix a Flat" just in case.

    Rich Rebuilds Electrified Garage repairs Model 3 at $15K+ discount

    Saw the video and thought. It's the owners fault. Accident and no insurance. BUT its a new car, and the repair was simple. COME ON TESLA! This actually points to a flaw in the design. Shouldn't that area be better protected??? What scars me is, I've just passed 50K. What could go wrong?

    Frozen Touch Screen

    The first time it worried me, I was driving on the freeway doing 70 MPH, on A/P. Kept driving and in about a minute all was back to normal. The second time it annoyed me because my passenger freaked out. Despite my assurances that all was well. After the car rested for about an hour, all systems...

    Supercharger - Holbrook, AZ

    The original 4 are still V2. ICBW, but I believe they are all priced the same, since the recent price increase.

    Charging at my mobile home

    It all depends on your available power. Start at the breaker box. What is max power output? It should be labeled 100 or 200 amps. If 100a you could overload your circuits. 200a should be all good, as long as the car has its OWN decided line. You'll need to install at LEST a 40 amp breaker, but a...

    Before I screw up my Model 3 in the car wash...

    Recently did my first automatic car wash with no problems. You have all the steps down. Just remember, when in "N" don't remove your seat belt. And don't touch the peddles. All will be just fine. There is a setting to "automagically" fold your mirrors at that location.

    Seniors wishing the glovebox had a physical button to open

    Another "senior member" chiming in. I've found the TM3 much easier to operate then my 2014 Chevy Volt. The Volt had an array of VERY small "buttons". Actually Touch Sensitive locations in the console. Small sensors require accuracy which was hard to execute in a moving car. And a voice...

    how many inch of snow on ground will make rwd undriveable?

    Onces upon a time, all cars were RWD, and people got where they needed to go. If winter tires, a shovel, and a bucket of sand won't get you there. Stay home!

    How can you tell if a Supercharger station is without power?

    It should show up on your Supercharger display screen.

    Driving from New Jersey to Milwaukee, WI.

    I 80/90, major truck routes. All truck stops are open. Illinois Tollway is on the "honor system". Cash tollbooths are closed, they expect you to pay over internet. Most local restaurants are drive thru or pickup only. Few have indoor seating.

    1,200 Mile Road Trip to Houston, TX - Am I Crazy?

    Last week I went Phoenix to Little Rock and return, on that same route. Willcox to Deming is only 135 miles. Same for El Paso to Van Horn. Texas speed limit is 80, so you may want keep it down to 70. But beware west Texas can get windy. If winds are high, I've found AP on #2 following...

    Tesla Official Statement on Range

    Here in Phoenix I lose about the same amount. Overnight temps in the low 50's to mid 40's. With the car plugged in, and not used, it will "topoff" about every other night. Just remember YMMV.

    Few new superchargers in the US?

    "8 miles" ??? Do you want a station at the end of your block? The WHOLE state of Arkansas only has ONE station, for the whole state! Others coming soon since 2017. Heading west from Little Rock your only choices are RV parks.

    Pre-conditioning on new update

    When I want to start out with a nearly full battery. I set my charge to 95% the night before, then reset it to 100% the next morning. Battery will be warm and car is good to go.

    Pre-conditioning on new update

    The Chevy Volt has a programmable 7 day timer, with provisions for seasonal rates changes. In AZ, TOU has different summer and winter schedules. Program the car once, you're set for life. I wish Tesla had a simple time on - time off setting.

    Purchasing Used Model 3 from non Tesla Dealer, can I Supercharge to get home?

    Got my car from a non Tesla dealer in LV, and drove home to PHX. Supercharged in Kingman, AZ same day. Tesla sent me a bill in the car, which I paid with my Credit Card. You will need to transfer ownership as soon as the car is registered in your name.

    Great post, I'll refer any interested friends. Made two 5K trips this past summer. Supercharger network seals the deal, without it Tesla would be like all the other brands. I do question the placement of some SC stations. Deming, NM is at a gas station, on the side of the building where...
