    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Ugh, it’s time to stop with the “Will pay for itself” commentary. The planet is burning up—we should be paying MORE, NOW, to get off out fossil fuel addiction. BTW, we’ve only got one usable planet.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Does anyone have a good insights on which websites are giving the best trade in offers? I know some have posted of excellent offers here, but I can't remember which site(s) were recommended. Also, IIRC, didn't someone receive an offer in the low 70's from Tesla for their 2021 Plaid trade in...

    Plaid 21”rear tire woes - factory defect?

    Well, my suspicion is that the OP drives a LOT of highway miles, and the car self-selects "Low" at highway speeds. "Low" should likely result in more inner tire wear due to the camber changes at that suspension setting, and his extreme inner tire wear is the result of camber already being way...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    THIS!!!!!! I find it stunning that Tesla's own facilities are NOT covered in solar panels, to include parking lots. Talk about NOT leading by example. Those of us that follow Tesla know their cash position is "FLUSH." Yet they built a Gallery and service center in Glendale about a year or...

    2021 Model S Plaid Brake Failure - At lower speeds.

    It seems odd that it should take this long to get some analysis. Tesla's review of the data logs should have taken hours or days, not months.

    Plaid 21”rear tire woes - factory defect?

    “SCRAPING SOME INTERNAL COMPONENTS?” Excuse me? Tire is round. Go take a look at your rear wheel wells and see what components are being lathed down please…. We’ll be waiting. Please send pics too:-) Thx.

    Model S Plaid - One Year Later

    Yes, the current set up is absurdly stupid. The massively large Homelink button pops up EXACTLY where the repeaters show what you’re about to scrape the side of your Tesla with. It’s as if the people that write the code don’t actually drive the damn car. Do they never back out of a garage...

    An issue which has stumped Tesla Repairs for the last 2 years

    As an aside, on the most recent example, we just traded the 2017/8 (I think) MS Perf with this issue into Tesla after the event occurred a second time, but only after they had diagnosed a potential issue with a wiring harness (or perhaps it was just a guess on their part). While the harness was...

    TSLA impact: if you're smarter than the author of a misleading/inaccurate article, you can potentially pick up TSLA shares for less by buying them when they're On Sale:-) Background needed, however: the HEPA filter is used when NOT in recirculation mode, further showing just how clean the air...

    An issue which has stumped Tesla Repairs for the last 2 years

    Strongly recommend a visit to Safercar.gov where you really must file an alert with NHTSA. Perhaps it will save a few lives. We have had more than a dozen MS’s since 2013 and more than one spontaneously lost its power steering: the steering effort is so extreme as to likely cause many drivers...

    Yes, we gather your disdain for Mr. Ogan. That said, is his information accurate as posted in the thread? It's not the messenger but the message that matters here, because facts matter.

    Full Self Driving without Assistance by this time Next Year - Musk

    Concur 100%, especially since we've purchased FSD at least two or three times and have effectively nothing to show for it. Frankly, I too feel like I've been scammed as the Summon feature is more of a joke than a real "feature," with its strong proclivity toward curbs and large objects...

    Perhaps it's an issue with our larger sample size? While I'm thrilled you've had an excellent example of the Model Y, perhaps your lack of service visits leads to "no problems with customer service in Denver." Since 2013 we've owned over a dozen MS's and have far, far too much experience...

    Based on the many, many issues we've read about on these forums, I hate to say that it's not FUD . . . Tesla MUST step up their product pre-delivery testing, production quality, warranty, and customer service, in the US and globally.

    DFW Model S Deliveries

    Concur. They did two of our MS's and the product install was perfect. We had been going to ProTec Mobile for many, many years, but we've had far too many issues (bubbles, split seams) and do not recommend them any longer. My time is valuable: for what it costs to install PPF I expect the...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Pay a visit to your nearest Gallery and ask them if there's anything they can do perhaps? Surely a manager or higher up can shake the tree as you are a repeat customer and have a specific issue that they could help you resolve . . . .

    How much $ to retire and how to fund your lifestyle in retirement

    Actually, what has occurred is WONDERFUL because it happened while you were still employed. Imagine if this massive drop had occurred after you had made an early retirement decision . . . Here's a better idea: BUY MORE TSLA while it's on sale! That will set you up best for an early...

    On the contrary, this is exactly the BEST time to dump any silly diversification as this is as good a "SALE!" as one may ever find on a once-in-a-lifeetime, massively disruptive company like Tesla. Information Asymmetry, often created by this forum, is a gift: USE IT. And: The more...

    60k miles, heat pump failure 2020 MYP - Tesla wants $4500

    Interesting turn of events. The fact that you reported heat pump/AC issues WHILE under warranty should be your saving grace, for at least a partial Goodwill gesture by Tesla . . . . Please keep us posted.

    Sadly, this new release reflects a very limited and poor effort on AAA's part. After watching the AAA B-Role and skimming the 35-page PDF report, let's be perfectly clear here: the headline SHOULD have been: ADAS in Three-year old Tesla Model 3 far outperforms two other brands

    Tesla Model 3 vs ICE as it relates to the environment

    I am confused by your comment. Are you suggesting that climate change issues are a Chinese hoax? If so, are these sites "part of the scam" too? https://climate.nasa.gov/ https://www.climate.gov/ The OP, perhaps not even a real Tesla owner, posts jaw-dropping remarks that no one else can...

    Tesla Model 3 vs ICE as it relates to the environment

    Sadly, an interesting analysis, but not relevant. As saying goes, "Science doesn't care what you believe." While the facts may not matter to you, for the others on the thread, let's recap some of them: 1. ICE vehicles dump GHG's with every drive, and they get more dirty and inefficient as...

    Just have her fill out a Power of Attorney so that you can sign any docs on her behalf? That should work . . . if not, talk to a manager and get an extension of a few days so she can get back into town. You've waited long enough and Tesla is being unreasonable.

    I'm way behind on this thread, but must chime in with advice/not advice on your diversification plans: don't do it. Seriously, I think TSLA is, by far, my least risky investment ever and have let it grow to some 95%+ of our total net worth (which is now quite substantial). I learned a LOT...

    And, of course, with a Prius you can still dump GHG's at NO COST TO YOU! What a deal--leave a planetary-scale disaster for future generations to deal with, while basking in that Prius glow, all because panel gaps and a better customer service experience were far more important than leaving a...
