    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    Thank you for being an optimist. I have pretty much given up on the human race.

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    I agree and use every interaction where the conversation bends toward ..weather, like we are having now. 5-7 days of 103 (39.4 C ) in the Northwest. 30 years ago it was common to have rain at least half the time in the summer here. People live in either denial or suffer from memory loss..or?

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    It does not feel or look that way except for the states in the West, Calif.,Oregon and Washington. The Red states are stuck in gas and oil as something they will not give up. It is a battle, were some states are able to erect, say, Solar "farms", off the coast wind turbines, but even in the...

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    I live in Oregon, a blue state..mostly. Still, even here, people are reluctant to do much about Climate change..very discouraging. https://epic.uchicago.edu/insights/2024-poll-americans-views-on-climate-change-and-policy-in-12-charts/

    Dismantled and fixed power seat lever switch

    Our 10 year old grandson put his big foot on the horizontal lever. It broke a pin used to activate the forward/back movement. I was about to part of a screw in its place. Works fine, but the actual external lever...does not always stay on...very loose . I can't imagine how much $ Tesla service...

    Cat cracked my windshield and roof glass

    Having a very difficult time getting a clear picture...meaning one that shows the hairline crack...tried outside, inside garage, portrait, etc. Still working on that.

    Cat cracked my windshield and roof glass

    the crack is 13" long, and 4" from the end the level of the glass is not equal. Running my fingernail across the crack stops my nail. I think it is a stress crack, others have had them.

    Cat cracked my windshield and roof glass

    Yesterday, noticed a 13" hairline crack, extending from the front edge of the leading roof glass pane.. about 12" from the side. No chips, no sign of what caused it. Stress..I assume. Why, is the glass "bad" in some way?

    3 year of Model 3, AWD, low miles...overnight crack appears in roof glass...

    Drove around yesterday, not rocks hitting the car, local driving. Parked in garage. Cleaning windshield and roof, noticed a find crack front edge over passenger seat straight back 13". No idea how this happened. Weak glass? Not ready to spend $3500, tape may be used if it leaks. O...it looks...

    Michelin Primacy MXM4 sucks!

    Well..I took the MXM4's of our M3 with less than 800 miles on them. I had nothing to compare them to,as the car was new. Now having worn out a set of Nokians...I plan to put the MXM tires back on. Parsimonious probably sums up why.

    Hankook iON EVO All season tires with controlled efficiency testing

    :D Those tires were on my Model 3 when new. I replaced them after 800 miles because I thought I need a more aggressive All Season tire due to possible ice. Turns out I did not need that. So putting the MXM"s back on. Yeah, I may regret it, or not.

    Hankook iON EVO All season tires with controlled efficiency testing

    I just went out to the storage shed, looked at the Michelins, and came to the same conclusion.

    Hankook iON EVO All season tires with controlled efficiency testing

    I took the original MXM Michelin tires off at 1000 miles on our new Model 3 AWD. That was in 2021. I put Nokian WR G4's on..now shot at 27K miles. Should I put the MXM"S back on..or spring for the Hankook Ion EVO AS tires..

    Yes, and especially on performance. Any one have them and care to comment?

    Best tires for long range?

    Thanks for the insight. So, any other tires for the M3 AWD Lr. that are good for year around , mostly rain in the winter here. I had Nokian's but the wear was ..extreme? Only 27K miles and shot..."normal" driving which means everyday around town trips.

    Is this not deceptive?

    Chris...Every time I have to deal with Tesla..I become more and more frustrated and disenchanted. Basically, I like our car..there are problems with it..many small ones, but I can live with those. It is almost 3 years old, I plan on getting another EV in a year or so, yes another brand. About...

    2021 Model 3 AWD LR...brake inspection

    Wondering what others are doing as far as the brake maintenance : inspection, wire brushing, grease on the two pins in the brake assembly. With 27K miles and no adverse conditions. No snow melt chemicals or driving on the beach...Pads look like new.

    Can someone suggest the best color match for Gemini Wheel Curb rash repair?

    I have just been mixing Rustoleum Metalic sliver and gloss black mixed to match..close enough. Have been fixing curb rash since we got our Tesla. Small files,then wet sanding with 220. It's good enough for me...more rash to come..

    Did Tesla really lay off their entire Supercharger staff

    My thoughts exactly, sad to say. Will keep our 2021 M3 until ? 27K miles and 3 years old...probably for years. The future looks murky.

    Did Tesla really lay off their entire Supercharger staff

    Probably so. Just frustration showing. “What’s the plan, what’s the strategy, and at such a pivotal moment, why are they bailing on that entire team?” asked Jonathan Katz, an EV-charging executive who was part of Tesla’s charging unit for five years ending in 2020.
