    Frame Damage on a used Model S

    Tesla is offering to make you whole. Seems to me that your issue is with your ins company, as it is their responsibility to replace your vehicle with a like kind vehicle, even if it now costs more than you paid. Of course I don't know your ins contract, or the rules in your State, but that is...

    Model S Plaid Paint Coat Issue

    You can be absolutely sure that Tesla will blame it on the film if you put it on, guarantied. Getting fixed at Tesla, well, it's Tesla 😖

    Is there a problem here with neutral and ground

    In the old days the neutrals and the grounds were all on one bar, now we isolate the neutrals from the grounds. Your panel has grounds and neutrals mixed together on both bars, and it looks like it's tied together at the bottom. In your case all the neutrals should be on the right and all the...

    eMMC recall reimbursement

    Yes, Tesla does have a belligerent attitude about many things, and to me that's all the more reason to take them to task. I agree with you that, If a person is billing out at $500/hr and has more work than they can keep up with, and No Free time, then of course it isn't worth their time. I think...

    eMMC recall reimbursement

    Actually it costs Tesla more. Arbitration costs $0. Small claims is a small filing fee, which is included in a judgment when you win. It takes a little time but very little money, on the other hand, Tesla has to pay staff to deal with each claim, and travel if in small claims. After they lose 10...

    eMMC recall reimbursement

    Not the method I would use, or suggest. I would file for arbitration, If I got no satisfaction there, I would file in small claims. Filling for arbitration should get you some attention from Tesla legal, that's what happen with yellow screens. legally, Tesla has no leg to stand on, Tesla offered...

    Ex Tesla Forums community: We were closed down by Tesla: Engage has nowhere to go.

    Yes there are, and yes they do, but they don't take over every thread with their cheerleading BS, like in that forum, which, I believe, is the reason most of us left.

    Left there a long time ago. Got tired of the true cult followers that will make any excuse for Tesla, hope they don't show up here. I consider this a more level headed place.

    Sentry Mode bust!

    Yes, good point. In Michigan, punitive damages are not permitted to punish defendants, but exemplary damages are awarded to the plaintiff for especially despicable behavior on the part of the defendant. Punitive, exemplary, Hmm, seems like a distinction without a difference.

    Sentry Mode bust!

    Simple. Let the do whatever they will, then file in small claims, for actual and punitive damages, to the max allowed in small claims. If that doesn't deserve punitive damages, I don't know what does. When he has to pay out of his pocket, that's when he will learn.

    Small accident

    Simple. Since he tried to pull that, get your car fixed at his expense. He deserves it and I can see the dent in your car, no reason for you to eat that.

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    Tesla made the mistake of having safety features controlled by the MCU. People are having MCU failures that Tesla claims are not the emmc. That needs to be reported to the Feds, with pics of the failures, and writings from Tesla claiming it's not the emmc. This is just as unacceptable as the...

    I don't need luck. Most cars don't have OTA at this point, and I have no problem diving a car for a very long time. I just sold my chevy 2500 that was 24 yrs old, but I agree with you on the way things are going, I'm just not going to play.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Agreed. Seems the only way to get Tesla to do the right thing anymore is to sue them. Should be an easy win since they have basically admitted fault in a "malfunctioning chip". Remember when they sold us cars based on how well they were going to take care of their customers? :confused:

    What is 12v battery replacement cost

    Sorry just saw this question. I watched him do it, and asked if there was anything special about changing it. Answer NO, just disconnect the HV battery and swap. He did not connect anything to the car to be able to program anything.

    Not a rumor Our records show that you own, or previously owned, a Model S/X that was built before March 2018. It may be eligible for Tesla’s Warranty Adjustment Program covering malfunction of a memory chip (embedded MultiMediaCard). This malfunction may result in a blank or intermittently...

    That's not a-lot of people? Well lets see. How many people in this forum have been refusing V9 for some where around a year or more? I only know of 8 and 6 of them claim they were forced V9, and those 6 all happened around the same time. Interesting, that we all managed to X out of that...

    Congrats OP. I knew Tesla could not be trusted when they trashed our model S UI, to accommodate model 3 software, Then when they force downgraded me on to V9 from V8, after I refused to accept their downgrade, for possibly around a year I think, then add in batterygate and chargegate, I knew I...

    "Something wrong inside the cells" is always degradation. State the authority for this statement. Volt capping is because of degradation. According to who? Bad thing inside cells = degradation. State the authority for this statement.

    Guy V said While they might have some problems with the EPA about how long Rated Range should actually have to be delivered, they are telling you in the new warranty only to count on 70%, which is 185 if Rated was 265. The cars we are discussing are not new cars and are not under any new car...
