    12v battery warranty?

    Does anyone know about the lithium 12V battery that is offered by a 3rd party? My Model S gave me "replace 12v battery soon" error today. I called for service and could not talk to a human, no matter what I tried. Then, I finally signed up for mobile service replacement but it won't be for...

    New superchargers

    there are at least four supercharger locations in the greater Seattle area that haven’t (yet) been built. But they all say “coming in CY 2018.” I understand how predictions are never perfect but isn’t there some chance they could be updated? After all, we are 1/4 through CY 2019 already.

    Tesla service is rapidly becoming one of the worst!!

    For the first two years that I owned my 2015 Model S, I was 6 hours from three different service centers. Just dropping by my local service center to deliver cookies was not an option. But when I called the 24-7 customer service line, I always got excellent service. Then, I moved to a big...

    What happened to the good old Tesla service and how to escalate ?

    I'm pretty frustrated, too. Mine is a 2015 Model S with 72,000 miles already. I LOVE the car and the engineering that went into it. I UISED to love the service. I could call the 24-7 customer hotline number any time day or night and talk to someone who actually knows the vehicle and the...

    Body Shop Woes

    Flyguy, the Tesla battery pack has a large kevlar (I think)_ cover the fits under the cold plate for the thousands of lithium battery cells. The impact of my incident actually pierced the kevlar but as far as the body shop guys can determine so far (without further disassembly) it did not harm...

    Body Shop Woes

    No, the subframe assembly, as I understand it, is a fairly large piece that supports the radar (under the nose cone) and the fenders, and just about everything else in the front of the car. Evidently, it's a hard piece to find in the inventory

    Body Shop Woes

    Tried a very big road trip -- Seattle to Annapolis, MD and back. All went well until just outside Indianapolis where I ran over some road debris (It looked like it was probably half a big brake drum that fell off an 18 wheeler). No way to avoid it; there was another 18 wheeler in the adjacent...

    Contesting a Speeding Ticket

    Hey, I know all problems start with "I have a friend who . . ." Well, this time, it is absolutely true. It wasn't my problem but a friend's. His story is that his wife was driving their Model S (I think it's a P90 but that doesn't pertain to the story) when she got stopped for speeding...

    Thank you for bring this old guy up to speed. My guess is that everyone else in the whole world knew about this, but not me! Thanks again.

    Psychadelic Dashboard

    It's only happened once and it's a good thing I was driving; my wife said it would give her a huge headache if she had to look at it and would stop the car! It is a rainbow of moving colors moving between the lines in my driving lane while in autopilot! Wow, very bright -- it flashed dim to...

    Camera read IL Rt 83 sign as 85 MPH sign!

    The very same thing happens with me in Noprth Florida while driving on Hwy 20. It's a repeatable experiment. Car immediately slows down from 55 to 20. Less frequently, the speed limit (35 mph) sign on another road is read as 5 MPH. I didn't think the cruise control could work below about 18...

    Avoid Tolls feature in Tesla-Google Maps App -- Model S

    Not all of Florida is toll crazy. I live in the Panhandle in a little town called Panama City Beach. It is midway between Pensacola (100 miles to the west) and Tallahassee (100 miles to the east). There are zero tolls in my county and only one small toll in the county to my immediate west. I...

    Avoid Tolls feature in Tesla-Google Maps App -- Model S

    Tao-Jones - Thanks for the WAZE tip. I downloaded that app years ago but haven't used it for awhile. That might be just the way to get around this problem. Many thanks for the suggestion. Dave

    Avoid Tolls feature in Tesla-Google Maps App -- Model S

    This might seem like a minor problem to some, but I assure it was a big deal for us on a recent trip from our home in Florida to Hill Country, TX. One of the Supercharger stops (which happens to also be a Tesla showroom and Service Center) is in Houston. Anyone who has never driven in Houston...

    Destination Charging

    One restaurant in my area (Panama City Beach) is probably the best known eatery in NW Florida -- always gets rave reviews from tourists, locals and restaurant reviewers. I know and enjoy a friendship with the management there. I dropped them a line suggesting they consider contacting Tesla...

    TuneIn Radio suddenly disappeared

    Well, it's not that I lost a favorite. I can live with that by simply browsing for it again, and then re-saving it. What I have lost is the ability to browse anything in TuneIn Radio. It remembers three or four other saved stations but the one I want to listen to is not on the list and when I...

    TuneIn Radio suddenly disappeared

    I like to listen to radio stations from another city on TuneIn. I have saved two favorite stations from the Washington DC area and I listen to them often since I cannot get classical music locally. One of the two keeps disappearing from my favorites list. Just a minor inconvenience to browse...

    Surprising [and funny!] Problem with Auto Pilot

    I have experienced this twice. So I know it wasn't just a "once in a lifetime" glitch. While driving along Florida Highway 20 between Panama City Beach and the Defuniak Springs Supercharger, I'm tooling along fat, dumb and happy on AP at about 60 mph. Suddenly, the speed drops to 20 mph. I...

    Driver Profile

    As a newbie Tesla owner, I have noticed a minor irritation that may have already led to some discussion here. I am 10" taller than my wife. When she drives the car and exits, I can hardly even get in! Is there an easy way to manage this problem? It's kind of like lifting the toilet seat...

    EV-CPO.com CPO Consolidator support thread

    Please disregard my gripe. I got in okay this time. I have purchased the 3 month option. New question. I'm interested in the first listing under private party sales (green one with autopilot). But when I click to contact the seller, there is no address. Am I doing something wrong? I have...

    NO. No problem here. I just want to tell you how much I appreciate what it looks like you're doing here. I have been really craving a Tesla for a while now but haven't figured out how to sift through all the possibilities. Looks like this service will really help. Like everyone else, I'm...
