    Plaid 5 and 7 seat option removed

    Have 2 X’s on order. Both plaids, both configured as 7 seaters. Goal was to remove the 2nd row and make 4 seaters. Tesla called today, discounted both orders by $3k, and turned them into 6 seaters.

    Air conditioner fails twice in two years - advice appreciated?

    Thanks for the tip @David.85D - this is the second time my compressor's gone out. The first time was ~December 2020 around 110k miles or so, give or take. Currently on a road-trip and the compressor went out during a supercharge when driving from Vegas → Phoenix. Luckily the weather's great...

    If you can't sleep in it, it is not self-driving

    Do your passengers ever complain when you do? Mine tend to freak out. Don’t know what their problem is.

    Which goes further for $43 - a Tesla or a Gas Car?

    I would agree, but only up to a point. You want to focus on the idea of "efficiency" beyond just the driving metrics. Living in TX my home charge uses a TOU plan where the juice is free from 8pm → 5am. Guess when I charge. Yup. 8pm → 5am. Cost: $0.00. Hard to beat that efficiency. Here's a...

    Cracked forelink?

    FYI - I had my front forelinks proactively replaced (the A part number → B part number) and also kept the old A parts. Jan 2017 S build. Not sure if any 3rd party can do an analysis to determine a manufacturing fault but happy to supply the old parts if such an analysis can be done and if it...

    The point is I will charge (and at no charge - thank you FUSC!) for as often and as long as I need. :)

    Has anyone repaired cooling louvers?

    One of my replaced cooling louvers failed a few weeks ago compromising the HVACs ability to cool the car. Tesla replaced the failed part under the limited new part warranty (from the initial replacement of the cooling louvers last year).

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    Jan 2017 S75D here with coils. I did the replacement out of pocket for the two front forelinks (i.e. 1041570-00-a → 1041570-00-b and 1041575-00-a → 1041575-00-b) out of an abundance of caution mindset. Still have the "a" parts too and wonder if it would ever make sense to send them off for an...

    Supercharger - Tifton, GA

    True - but would add if you've got a (foldable)bike you're looking at about 6min / .4mi per google. My play when road tripping is often to do 100% charges at SCs that are walkable/bikeable to a gym (specifically LA or Lifetime, as that's where I've got memberships). For my S75 that typically...

    Also if someone can reach out to the supercharge.info guys and give them this thread address so they can associate it with the SC location I'd appreciate it. (Or if there was an existing thread I missed please give them that one and put in a report-post on this thread so the mods can merge.) Thanks!

    Help Identifying Low Speed "clunk/rattle" Occuring When Steering Wheel Turned Mostly to Left/Right

    Good to know but the catch for me is I've got the coil suspension, not air. I've done some more trialing and can report I only note the sound if all the following conditions are met: The wheel is turned, Car is going over uneven pavement, Going at least 16mph Working on figuring out a way to...

    Help Identifying Low Speed "clunk/rattle" Occuring When Steering Wheel Turned Mostly to Left/Right

    Earlier this year I replaced both the front forelinks from the -A to the -B part. Suspect there's a defect in -A's but that's for another thread. Anyways when picking up the car the service rep said it would take a second as the tech noticed a sound during the initial test drive. However, as...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    FYI I had Tesla Service proactively replace both front forelinks on my car, and in doing so, it seems to have created a rattle/clunk at slow speeds, with the wheel turned mostly to the left/right, and going over rough pavement. Started a specific thread here: Help Identifying Low Speed...

    Help Identifying Low Speed "clunk/rattle" Occuring When Steering Wheel Turned Mostly to Left/Right

    Afternoon All, Have a JAN 2017 Model S 75D with ~115k on it. Car's performed well but am having two issues I need the board's helps with as Tesla Service is striking out on figuring it out. Main issue (this thread) is a clunk/rattle sound that occurs when turning (steering wheel turned more...

    Front suspension clunk

    Afternoon all - just stumbled across this thread and think I may have a similar issue. Here's a clip of the sound I hear when driving at slow speeds with the steering wheel turned (in this case it's maybe about three-quarters of the way turned). Car's currently in service and Tesla's...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    Interesting - the slow reverse at a turn seems to be a (the?) common theme in these failures. @Danj5267 - glad to hear you’re okay and got a good resolution from Tesla. Can you share a copy of the invoice showing the replacement part numbers? I drive a JAN 2017 build S75D coil, not air, and...

    I'll be honest. Poorly titled threads are my pet peeve. But hey, I get it. Not everyone thinks things through, especially on the internet.

    Hoping it gets online ASAP. Do the drive from Houston to Colorado a few times a year and having the SC @ Clayton will be a godsend for the return journey.
