    Can’t sign in to Tesla app

    Just had the same problem. Your fix worked. Fortunately, I was at home when it happened. If I'd been in a parking lot somewhere in the middle of a blizzard, I'd be really irritated. That's why I bought a key fob for my Model 3 and use it almost always.

    Model 3 Performace on the track

    I see this video has been posted in another thread but, perhaps, it deserves one of its own.

    Model 3 Performace on the track

    Anyone telling you that the Model 3 is only good in a straight line but not on the track (one of the last FUD arguments) need to be shown this video.

    I’ll get roasted but here goes anyway

    I use a key fob for a couple of reasons. 1) I need keys to get into my house so I always carry keys and attaching the fob is no problem. 2) I find carrying a phone everywhere is a nuisance; I'm not a slave to my phone and don't feel a need to be connected at all times.

    P3D crowd: Competing vs. high-performance ICE from a roll?

    The physical limit was based on current production tires.

    Considering a Model 3 or Cadillac ATS

    For what its worth, Consumer Reports just ranked Cadillac at the very bottom of its reliability standings.Tesla is again "recommended" on the same list.

    Tire shop didn't follow jacking procedure

    This is why I change my own tires. Put the winters on a couple weeks ago and, aside from misplacing one of the lug nuts and spending an hour looking for it, all went smoothly.

    Who Else Had ICE Ruined For Them?

    I was in the market for something sporty a few years ago and developed a list that included Corvette, Mustang, BMW Z3, Miata, Porsche Boxster, and Jaguar F-Type. I even road tested some of them. All of them were dropped when I drove an EV and put down a reservation for a Model 3.

    Are you a creeper?

    I am a creeper for the sole reason that I have to back into a space every day that brings my back bumper to within 10 inches of a wall. Creep mode allows the car to back up by itself while my foot is poised over the brake pedal. If it weren't for that, I'd prefer going creepless.

    Consumer Reports Model 3 reliability rating: reliable?

    I see this technique used repeatedly. Complaints to a forum are not indicative of overall quality and should not be used as a measure of such. Forums exist in large part to resolve complaints. Every automobile forum is the same. I formerly owned a BMW 3-series and a Smart Car. Their owners'...

    Tesla scrutinized by the NHTSA over Model 3 safety claims

    This is really old news (October 2018) dredged up again. What else would you expect from CNBC? They must have a stockpile of old anti-Tesla stories that they can revive whenever they run out of new ways to bash the company.

    New Kitchener Service Centre is Open.

    New supercharger going up in SS Marie but nothing west of that until Alberta! I'm getting lonely. :(

    When I couldn't make it to the delivery centre to pick up my Model 3, Tesla did deliver it to my home and at no extra charge. Have you asked?

    Recommendation for 18 inch wheels for Performance

    For my PD3, I got TSportline's 18" wheels and Pirelli winter tires last fall and drove on them til spring. They worked very well and are much lighter than the 20" OEM wheels. However, in late March I ran over a huge pothole, hidden by water, and blew out two tires. The tires were toast but the...

    Model 3 Scratches All Over And What Tesla's Tech Said

    A typical Montreal winter will cause a lot of damage like this, Just removing the ice and snow will result in a lot of scratches. Just imagine a block of ice sliding off the hood or the bristles of a snow brush passing over the paint.

    3p Or Used S100d?

    Haven't driven a Model S, so I can't compare but you have to watch out for the low front facsia on the Model 8 when approaching parking curbs.

    Corrective Steering Warning

    You can change the sensitivity of the feature in the Autopilot menu. That should minimize the surprises.

    Disappointing Range in P3D. Is this normal?

    214Wh/mi equates to nearly 350 miles of total range! That's amazing. You must be driving on very flat roads. As I live on the shore of Lake Superior every trip I take starts off uphill. My next test will be at 60mph and then I'll try 50mph -- lots of side roads here that will enable that speed...

    Disappointing Range in P3D. Is this normal?

    My car is completely stock with the original tires. I tried to make 56mph my average, which meant traveling at speeds that ranged from 53 to 63 depending on the terrain. I did not use cruise control because my course was a bit hilly and CC accelerates going up hills and often brakes going down...

    Disappointing Range in P3D. Is this normal?

    I took my P3D+ with the 20" performance wheels on a highway range test yesterday. It was calm and 75 degrees; the course was out and back and I used about half the battery during the trip. I wanted to see if 310 miles was possible and what speed it would take to do that, so I drove at 56 mph...

    Emergency Lane Departure - False Positives

    I haven't experienced this much at all. A false ELDA has appeared twice and only on a tricky corner that I drive through daily, but it seems to have learned from that experience as it no longer signals at that spot. As for LDA, I find it operates very gently and only when I have not directed the...

    How was your model 3 quality when you took delivery?

    Since I live 800 miles from the nearest Service Centre, my M3 was delivered to my door. Aside from the truck driver not knowing how to open the doors from the inside (and using the emergency handle instead of the button) the process ran smoothly. There was a bit of adhesive still on the...

    Performance not getting 310 miles promised

    I got 236 miles on an 86% charge. A quick calculation indicates 274 miles if I'd started with 100%. Can't remember the exact Wh/mi but it was close to 270.

    Performance not getting 310 miles promised

    Took my Performance 3+ for a highway trip last weekend, as a bit of a range test. I had the 20" performance wheels and summer tires on it. Kept the speed at 65mph on an out and back course -- against the wind one way, with it coming back. Traffic was very light so I didn't have to vary the speed...

    Dirty car/winter driving

    If your climate stays below freezing for months on end, as it does here, there's not much need to wash the car except to clean off the cameras. Otherwise the car's doors and windows freeze up. If it varies from cold to warm, more frequent washings are needed.

    I'd say "Brown", a mixture of red and green.

    Did Tesla’s Sale Alienate Everyone?

    Jeep is offering a 10% discount until April 1 and my local dealer is adding another 5% on top of that. Don't hear any earlier buyers asking for a refund. Tesla is being held to a higher standard.

    Please give the Model 3 CHAdeMO

    The nearest Supercharger to me is over 600 miles away (unless I cross the international border, in which case its 220 miles). The nearest Chademo/CCS charger is within 2 miles. So yes, an adapter would be great. Tesla has been promising Superchargers all across the Trans-Canada Highway for a...

    Windows lowering by themselves

    I had that happen to my car and wondered what the problem might be. I found out a day later when I was exiting the car and accidentally brushed the down window button on the passenger side with my forearm as I was pushing the door open. Human error.

    Why would someone choose a Polestar 2 over a Model 3?

    I haven't owned a Volvo since my 1960 120 Series. It didn't have headrests but it did have lap belts, standard! It also ate clutch slave cylinders at a rate of one per year. Otherwise, it was as solid as a rock.

    Canada owners

    Got my Model 3 too late in the season to go on any lengthy trips but I've heard of a Model S that crossed Ontario, North of Superior, by charging at campgrounds. You'll need the appropriate charging connector, however and I'm not sure which ones will work with M3s. There is a Chademo-CCS charger...

    Quick question about Model 3 when backing up

    No EAP required. It works well as long as the backup camera is free of snow.

    Quickest state inspection ever

    Don't they charge tax on the electricity you use? It's not as if the road tax actually goes to pay for roads -- it goes into general revenue along with the tax on your electricity bill. But perhaps it's different where you live.

    Starting to regret FSD pre-purchase in a major way

    It looks like Elon has just announced FSD will be available by the end of 2019, but regulatory approval may still hold up its release. Tesla will release fully self-driving cars in 2019 — with a big asterisk

    Anti-Tesla/EV road rage experiences?

    When I was driving my Smart ED everyone wanted a piece of me because they all felt they's beat me (most couldn't). But nobody wants to challenge my Tesla. Looking forward to summer when the muscle cars come out of storage.

    Calling all former M, AMG and RS Drivers

    The Tesla more than fills the gap, IMHO. I had an E46 M3 from 2004 which I thoroughly enjoyed when it wasn't being repaired.Of all the cars I've owned, it's the one that most resembles the Model 3 Performance, both being solidly planted and responsive when being driven quickly. Both also feel...
