    New S Owner: My First Tesla Buying Experience, Growing Pains

    I bought my first Tesla in 2013 (early adopter). Great service. Top-notch. Bought my 2nd Model S P100D in 2017. Then...watched service and delivery go straight to hell. Every day it gets worse. Just brace yourself. Escalation is a myth. The "you can only talk to the app" sets the tone...

    Tesla Service - Getting worse by the day....and weirder

    You are wrong about so many points. The Model S certainly IS a premium priced car for a starter. But whether it is or not ....that is not the point that is being made here. The service stinks. Which brings me to your next error. NO, it is NOT the same everywhere. As I stated earlier, I...

    Tesla Service - Getting worse by the day....and weirder

    "under-manned"? Then it is obvious. Hire women.🤪 But seriously, the under-staffed excuse is too easy. It is interesting to see how things look different when the focus is on BAD processes that create WASTE. Tesla service is a beehive of people trying to manage bad processes. Firefighters...

    Tesla Service - Getting worse by the day....and weirder

    Nothing close to the excuses that come from Tesla. Our household has a Ford, Suburu, and a Toyto along with the Tesla. There is NO comparison. Tesla has a cluster frick of process problems while we see excellent service from the others. Taking the Tesla into the black hole of service always...

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    This fix sucks. It came back. (yeah I know it's an old thread but my problem lingers on even after the service bulletin "fix"...so I rant) And they say "we are continuing to look into it."

    Tesla Service - Getting worse by the day....and weirder

    Yeah, it is quite a stretch to equate the horrible service to "wiper blade replacement". The fanboys have an interesting mindset.

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    Shudder "under investigation". That's a good one! My service center told me that in 2016, 2017,2018,2019,2020..........

    You will get BLACKBALLED if you dare give Tesla Service a bad review!

    Yes. So true. I am currently stuck in the "We'll let you know when the parts......" universe. Along with the "Please use the app to communicate" nonsense. EXCEPT when I ask a tough question on the app THEY avoid documenting the tough answer by phoning ME. You know it is like when I...

    Tesla Service - Getting worse by the day....and weirder

    Ugh. My first Tesla Model S was purchased in 2013 and the service was beyond great. Fast forward to now and my 2nd Tesla 2016 P100D MS where we see continually failing service with horrid processes. Right now my car is back in service with the "we don't know when we can get parts" response...

    Poll: your gut expectations for FSD v9

    "Gut Expectation"? My forecast for the future: 1. Friend Elon will tweet more cryptic promises 2. We/I will salivate at the promise of each tweet 3. The V9 tester people - those better than the rest of us - will continue to post YouTube videos of V9 swerving them into oncoming traffic 4. This...

    FSD 9.0 Beta-

    Ouch. That's going to leave a mark...y'know ...being psychoanalyzed and all. (a lot of anger 😆) Since I had my first Tesla in 2013 and was called an "early adopter" I guess I did listen to Elon.....but not so affected as all that. One learns quickly that Elon says a lot of things. Some happen...

    Blog Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Software Deployed to ‘Careful Drivers’

    ......and then charge you thousands for mods. (...like the "infotainment" scam that brought my 2.5 to 3.0 for lots of $$$$$. ...AND don't tell me "Elon said" he would make upgrades for folks who paid for FSD...Tesla will just do some "marketing" to squeeze more thousands $$$$$ from us.)

    FSD 9.0 Beta-

    Not. I was told for several years by Tesla fanboys that "Elon said..." THEN....the marketing scam known as "INFOTAINMENT UPGRADE" cost me many $$$$ just to get my cameras from 2.5 to 3.0 usefulness. The "Elon said" argument does not hold water versus Tesla marketing and need to generate...

    Beta is "Dangerous"?

    If a (different, theoretical)manufacturer should build a faulty steering linkage into a model (full of faults) then .... if the driver compensates for the unpredictable steering it is, in fact, NOT dangerous? Because "If used responsibly, it cannot do anything you don't let it do."? I struggle...

    Tesla Full Self Driving Level 5 Autonomy

    I LOVE predictions! Ok. Ok. I have read ALL of Elon's tweets. I have consulted with SAE (well, sent them numerous emails). I have read back issues of Motortrend, Road and Track, AND Lampoon. The answer is clear. Tesla will SKIP level 5 and go to level 7B! By mid-year. Or later this year...

    Beta is "Dangerous"?

    Is this an accurate analysis or sensational journalism? I do not have the beta so I don't know. The Tesla driver "signs" a release however other drivers and pedestrians do not agree to be part of the experiment...

    Customer Service [bad service center experience]

    Exactly. My first Tesla 2013 MS....incredible great service experience. Fast forward to 2nd MS p100d....worst experience of any car owned. Last Thursday in for service: 1. "Use the app" --- not allowed to talk to anyone about my $150,000 car. EXCEPT ....when THEY want something from ME...

    I’m sorry I claimed Tesla support was helpful

    Hmmmm...they COULD call it a "Gamma" release. (Next letter in the Greek alphabet for those who are like me and have to Goog it) Not sure what the Greeks had to do with technology but it seems important. AND my late Irish Gamma had no use for input either. Yeah, I can see that listening and...

    Blog SpaceX Set to Launch Humans into Space on Wednesday

    Yes, very proud of our friend Elon and the group he has assembled to NOT think about what cannot be done but rather: "What do we need to do." I proudly worked for a global aerospace giant before retiring. 40 years in senior management working areas such as research & development (anything...

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    No, your solutions were not solutions. I get rude comments like yours from fanboys in the past who have posted thousands of posts and love to insult. So stop wasting time then. Go on and please ignore me. You were of no help and I saw you were about to get rude with "what's your hurry"...

    I want MCU2 so it seems to be a package at my service center. I will pay what they want.

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    Thank you. I like your suggestion. One more question: WHAT customer service telephone number? My service center was VERY insistent that I was getting free FSD upgrades but MCU2 upgrade demands payment. I will call if I know a number that someone will answer. EDIT: I found the main...

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    How? Is there some secret way? (sounds sarcastic but I am serious to the tune of 2800$!) When I talk about what I have learned on these blogs (more than from Tesla - even how to operate the car) they laugh and say "Don't believe what you see on the internet." It's very dismissive and...

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    So if I sound confused it is only because I AM! For several years I have been told "no charge" when upgrades come as we step towards FSD because, at least in theory, I already paid for it. As of now I am scheduled the second week in June (appointment slid by them because of parts...

    Will Tesla be able to deliver FSD with HW3.0 and current Model 3 sensor suite, ever?

    Nope, not on any paperwork I have and I keep everything. Maybe written in blogs like this. Or in the press. I dunno. In any event I am not mad about being misled by Tesla Sales Consultants and Elon with ??promises?? ="declare that something will happen" (they quoted timelines) I just would...

    Will Tesla be able to deliver FSD with HW3.0 and current Model 3 sensor suite, ever?

    To quote a famous cigar enthusiast: "It depends on what the definition of 'is', is." I am not sure anything was "promised" Let me check on that. I look at my contract/ bill of sale that says I get a car (A promise of when? Yes.) That I get FSD (no promise of when or what that means but the...

    Will Tesla be able to deliver FSD with HW3.0 and current Model 3 sensor suite, ever?

    Yeah, you would think so. Last month when I scheduled an appointment with the Renton, Washington service center they used the words "not eligible" which struck a nerve. I responded with my history of paying for FSD. They re worded their reply a bit by saying "not eligible yet" and that 2.0...

    Will Tesla be able to deliver FSD with HW3.0 and current Model 3 sensor suite, ever?

    As someone who placed a bet on FSD (with cash during purchase) and now is StUcK in HW 2.0 with Tesla telling me all the things they can't do....I belive the op is correct. Depressing. I bought my first Tesla in 2013 and fell in love with service promises MADE and ACHIEVED. Now with my second...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My service center people said "You are not eligible". I asked what that meant and they said Tesla has NOT figured out how to get HW 2.0 to 3.0. Other posts here indicate now CAMERAS must be replaced. (to get progress to FSD paid for). Confusing and stressful. I pressed pretty hard on what...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Has anyone here gotten the "info" upgrade from their HW 2.0? I keep thinking my 2.0 Model S is part of the "Death List". Tesla waiting for 1.Me to die OR 2. Car to be totaled or 3. Car gets stolen/goes out of service for any other reason. I am getting information that Tesla is not...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    "Per thousands of posts". Ok I can hear your sarcasm and envision your sneer. From the link you provided: "Tesla cars with Full Self-Driving Capability and Autopilot Computer 2.0 or 2.5 are eligible for a complimentary upgrade to the FSD Computer.

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    I feel like the OP. My first Tesla in 2013 came with dream support. Now with my newest Model S a high percentage of discourse concerns what they cannot do. Paid for FSD with wild promises from sales and Elon. Still sitting on HW2.0 with no upgrade in sight. Advisors say wait wait. Don't...

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    Wow. I just stumbled on to this topic and man oh man how it exploded. We have the "fanboys" who go after anyone pointing out the ever-mounting stress/problems of owning a Tesla. (I was an early adopter in 2012 and bought my second one in 2016 - but never wanted to become the hair-on-fire...

    Tesla is once again not selling parts for salvage vehicles.

    yeah.....sadly, I am seriously considering trading in my beloved Tesla for something else as it gets closer to out of warranty. I was an "early adopter" with my first Tesla....then traded it in for another in 2017.. But...the amount of "no's" heard at parts and service locations has me...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    "Owners have passed on.." Yeah. The death list. :( (death of owner or car)I am 70 years old and ask often (as many of you do) "When do I get the promised HW3 upgrade?" (I have 2.0) I have been waiting 3+ years. I get the same answer everyone gets. "You will get on a list. You are not...
