    Tesla Vehicles now importable to Canada!!

    I drove my Model S from Ottawa to Florida and the Dania service center had no problem booking me in, providing me a loaner and fixing my car at no cost under warranty. There was never even a discussion that I had a Canadian car. Got fixed and I was happy.

    Hitch and Bike Rack installed on Model 3

    No need for switch on Model 3. It backs up with no problems. Camera is obscured but the old fashioned side view mirrors will help guide you.

    Hitch and Bike Rack installed on Model 3

    Not difficult at all. It comes with both sizes. I purchased the ball hitch and wiring harness package so the price is higher.

    Hitch and Bike Rack installed on Model 3

    I just installed the other day so I do not know. The extra weight is about 155 pounds with both bikes and rack. You can reduce the wind drag by removing the seats and the battery off the bikes.

    Model S Door handle don't show - out of warranty

    Had 2 of my P85 door handles fixed by Tesla mobile service and my car was a year out of warranty. They did it no charge as a courtesy because of the many issues regarding the mechanisms and sensors. Tesla is good for these sort of things.

    Tesla Extended Service - does it make sense?

    My 5 yr old P85 was out of warranty by approx 1 year. The TPMS system and two door handles needed replacement. I had the ranger fix the doors and sent the car in to Montreal for the TPMS replacement. Even though it was out of warranty, Tesla did this for free. N/C. With this type of service I am...

    Supercharger costs, and is Tesla taking advantage of us?

    Using L2 chargers I can dial down my input in Amps. I have done this when using less reliable power such as at a cottage where it was tripping the breaker. I would like that same option when charging. I agree with TOFLYIN the OP. Give me the ability. Can't be that hard to program it in. or Add...

    Dashcam?

    Dash cam installation on the Model 3 was much much easier than I thought. After watching a few YouTube videos I decided to run the wire to the cigarette lighter power in the center console. The covers pop out very easy. Entire installation took about 12 minutes.

    Body Shop Repair Story (So far: No Happy Ending)

    I do not disagree with what you are saying. The process that is safe is the best. My issue is the process. The more these cars will be around the better the process should become. Until then, there is a serious lack of information flow and very slow reaction time with all the players. The...

    Sure. If I had autopilot. I don’t. The car is early 2013 vin 7xxx. It does no even have parking sensors. Battery disconnect takes minutes and can be done by the Tesla Ranger.

    Ontario EV Rebates Cancelled July 11, 2018

    This is Canadian media (CTV) running a US interest story not relevant to Canadians, esp. Ontarian's considering this thread is about Ontario EV rebates. This is about US rebates. I don't get it.

    Ontario EV Rebates Cancelled July 11, 2018

    CPO = Certified Pre Owned = Used. The rebate does not apply to used. Train of thought is correct but logistically flawed.

    Tesla up-selling is partly to blame for some people in Ontario not getting EV rebates

    Lots of assumptions and opinions. Interesting discussion however the real and only answer is to trust that Tesla knows better and is doing the right thing for the overall interests of its main stakeholders.

    Regenerative Braking

    Although it tempting and a fun challenge to minimalise brake use, remember that brakes are mechanical and need to be used. Occasionally give your brakes a good solid stop. That also ensures they are working properly in case you really do need them in an emergency.

    Any Issues with your Model 3?

    Interesting! I had PPF (Suntek) applied to my front hood, fenders and bumper, and they gave me a choice to have the PPF film cut around the hood T emblem or have it removed and purchase a new one later from Tesla and have it placed on top of the film. I opted to have it removed. They applied the...

    What is the wh/km number in a Model 3 to obtain rated range?

    on my Model S it is 186 wh/km to drive the rated range. I generally achieve this range when driving at 106 kph in generally ideal conditions. I can also verify this when using the energy app by checking my projected range. What is this number on a Model 3? There is no energy app on a Model 3...

    Tesla supercharger available slot accuracy?

    In some cases it is not reliable. The problem is you never know until you show up. The lack of accuracy makes the feature somewhat unreliable an in my opinion useless.

    Ontario Rebate/Cap & Trade - Not so fast Doug

    Getting out of cap-and-trade Ford’s promised to get Ontario out of the carbon-emissions market it joined with Quebec and California earlier this year, which makes big greenhouse-gas emitters buy permits to emit at regular auctions.

    Over 9 weeks Config and Nothing. Am I the only one? Silver 19" EAP

    After TEN weeks I asked my DS in Toronto to escalate my lack of car. My DS escalated it and I was told today at 12:30 that Silver with Sport Wheels is not popular. Would I change my colour? Yes I said! I changed to Midnight Silver and within 3 hours I had a VIN 310** and we are arranging...

    I talked with Mandi about a month ago and she gave me the name of my DS which I talked with several times. I am on the list for June delivery. I am not in a hurry and have no issue waiting. I am grateful for Tesla and being able to afford one. I just don’t want to find out later that I fell...

    Over 9 weeks Config and Nothing. Am I the only one? Silver 19" EAP

    Yes, I do this 4x on average per day. Just checked and still no VIN. The frustrating thing is that there is no one higher than the DS in the communications chain. They have no way of finding out. They say “It’s in production”. I have no idea what this means to me and no one to talk to. It...
