    Checking on a Rumor

    Greetings : I am sending this selfish note to ask for information, help and advice. I have made such requests a few times in the past and have always received kind and helpful responses, so I decided to try to take advantage of you all again. I hope that I can return the favor some time...

    Model 3 WiFi Connection [Unable to Connect]

    This wi fi thing is a huge pain.... My Model S can see the home network when parked next to the Model 3. My phone can see the network when I am sitting in the model 3. My model 3 sees only one or two weird network signals, but not either of mine. I screwed around with this for hours...

    Tesla backing away from "Phone Key as primary key"

    Greetings Please add me to the list of those wishing that they had a key fob for their model 3. We have both an S and a 3. My wife drives the 3 and continually complains about the issues related to the phone and the card. This system is a pain in the rear compared to using the fob that came...

    Multi-Tesla Model 3 Households Survey

    Hi I am proud to say that we own 3 Teslas, My S, Her 3 and one that only goes 8 miles an hour. They are appropriately red, white and blue. The 3 is now 2 days old and it is a far, far better car than I anticipated!!! I might add that all of the postings about bad fit, etc/.....False...

    Summon and HomeLink

    These postings are a bit old. Let me add that I have a 3 year old Model S and a two day old Model 3. I moved the S to the "other" side of the garage and put the 3 in there to make things easier for my wife. I changed Home link and all is well with both cars EXCEPT that when I try summon...

    Door issues: ajar by itself and then stuck shut w/handle extended

    Ok....let me report my door handle saga. My left rear door handle failed to retract. Opened from inside...closed again, no help. I rebooted everything twice...no help. I went to the forums and the web...they suggested pulling some fuses and reseating them. I found that my 2015 85D...

    Has anyone made the run from Jackson, MS to Memphis, TN ??

    I learned from experience that my 85D had plenty of range to make that trip. The biggest issue I had was, as I said earlier, the result of the fact the navigation system (at the time of this writing) did not know of the existence of the Memphis super charger. When you enter Memphis SC it says...

    Has anyone made the run from Jackson, MS to Memphis, TN ??

    Greetings and thanks again for all of your encouragement and suggestions. I made that trip over the weekend and it went very smoothly. There were a few interesting issues, but the car performed perfectly and I finished the trip even more enamored of it. The big glitch was my fault. My...

    Has anyone made the run from Jackson, MS to Memphis, TN ??

    Thank you all for the terrify tips and the encouragement....I will stop by the gas station (!??) tonight and inflate the tires....I did not think of that one.. I don't have a Chademo adapter but if things start looking too scary, I will slow down and find a truck to draft carefully. I am off...

    Has anyone made the run from Jackson, MS to Memphis, TN ??

    Hi After 1.5 years, I have finally decided to try to get my S 85D with 19 inch wheels from Austin to Memphis to see the grand kids rather than burning gas in our Acura MDX. I will leave early in the morning this Friday, the 20th. The leg from Jackson to Memphis looks a bit...."Scary"...

    With 8.0 I have to take over for auto pilot more

    For what it is worth my experience with version 8 is that it does a much better job of stopping when the car ahead stops. It is very civilized and not so abrupt as was version 7. Unfortunately, The auto steer application is NOT better that version 7. It is more stressful to use it than to...

    The limit of the number of characters one can post here prevents me being more effusive in my praise....the summon and parking feature is generating widespread trepidation and confusion.....I think that you could help a lot of people. Grant

    Greetings....I just read your post on autopilot and was very much impressed. Thank you for taking the time to produce this document. I am going to take the liberty of suggesting that you consider writing one for the summon and parking features. Thanks again Grant Willson Austin, Texas

    She hit me!!!!!!

    Hi, Yes, these instructions came from the agent that sold her the policy that became active AFTER the collision. There seems to be something fundamentally wrong and immoral about this behavior. She pays no insurance cost and no repair cost and all of us get an increase in the cost of...

    She hit me!!!!!!

    Thanks for all of the kind words. I was seriously distressed the night I wrote my first note. The saga is still going on. I do have uninsured motorist insurance. The uninsured person wanted to pay themselves, but when she saw the estimates from Roger Beasley and Autocraft, she...

    She hit me!!!!!!

    This evening I was in a restaurant parking lot in Austin, sitting still when a young lady in a Ford Escape just backed right into the rear quarter panel of my beautiful car:mad::crying:....so I have to get it fixed. Her insurance was "lapsed".. and my agent said to get an estimate ASAP. I...

    Greetings from a fellow Texan (Austin) I have Summon problems too (or two) .. It opens the wrong garage door and it will not cross the bump at the threshold of the garage. It goes out but not in?? I tried to "teach" it to cross the bump but it earned an F grade in bump crossing even...

    Texas and battery life

    Hi I park my beautiful Model S outside each day when I go to work in Austin. These days at 5:30 or 6PM the phone app often reports an internal temperature greater than 110 degrees F. I have seen 126 degrees F. I found the scary clip below on a site called "Battery University". It relates...

    TxTag/EZpass

    It is interesting to note that when I applied for a TX tag for my new ModelS the menu does not offer an option to report your car as a Tesla. You can choose very strange cars, but not Tesla...my note to the agency is copied below. I tried to add my new Tesla Model S and that car is not listed...

    Houston to New Orleans Superchargers

    GREETINGS - - - Updated - - - Greetings I am trying to decide whether I can get from Austin to New Orleans and back in my new Model S. I know that it is certainly possible to get there, but getting back seems to require recharging in New Orleans proper. I would like to find a hotel...
