    Solid Red Light of Death Tesla HPWC wall charger [and how I DIY'ed a fix]

    I've found an 80A Tesla cable on eBay, but am not willing to pay $150 for a beat-up old cable/plug that looks like garbage and new ones are $350! Your kit and an old cable would go for over $400, so I'll hold-off and purchase a new wall connector from Tesla and get their four year warranty. I...

    Solid Red Light of Death Tesla HPWC wall charger [and how I DIY'ed a fix]

    Super job! You, no doubt, have greater electrical/electronic skills than most here, but for those that either are capable of learning or have the ability...great information! I have the "Gen 2 Mobile Connector (MC) Bundle" that came with my 3 and some extra adaptor plugs. Do you know if the...

    Model 3 LR for LONG daily commute?

    Picked-up my new SR+ three weeks ago in Tampa. Temperature was 70 and I used 152 miles driving 110 actual miles on I-75 at 70+ MPH. Not too bad. Last Thursday I drove 25 miles locally (25-45 MPH) and used 51 miles of battery life. WHY such poor "mileage?" Temperature was 90 in the shade and...

    Humming noise when in reverse

    #12 Yeah, I made a service appointment for my '21 3, but cancelled when I read the noise was the pedestrian warning system. The sound comes from a speaker in the front bumper behind the the right front tire wheel-well and the wire to the speaker can be disconnected. The noise sounds like...

    Tesla Website lack of Information

    Yeah, my 3 is the first car I've purchased in many years not to have floor mats or HomeLink installed at the factory. And Homelink is not installed in any 3 or Y trim level, not just the 3 SR+! Seriously, what percentage of Tesla buyers do not require a garage door/gate opener? Two or perhaps...

    Can I get my Deposit back?

    If you can prove financial hardship, I believe they will give it back. $100 won't bankrupt Tesla...

    Ordered a red 3 SR+ March after a test drive with a stated "2 - 4 week delivery" time. At 11:00 PM that night there's an update for me on shop.tesla.com to schedule my delivery for...4, 5, 6, 7 March! Called the next day and scheduled my delivery for 7 March. Great car, but it does have a...

    Any word on M3 incentives for Q1 2021

    Had the same decision and went with the '21 SR+ because it has a four year and an eight year warranty on the car and "drive train," respectively...and the new '21 SR+ price was recently cut $1,000. Also wanted a red one and they are not too common used or otherwise. Thanks! Charlie

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Ordered a red 3 Plus on the morning of 4 March after a test drive with a stated "2 - 4 week delivery" time. The new delivery center in Fort Myers (25 miles from me) will open on 15 March, so it was anticipated that's where it would be picked-up. At 11:00 PM that night there's an update for me on...

    I think that that we’re being ripped off...

    I can attest my 3 Plus corners/handles as well as any Corvette I've ever owned...and I've had over 25, C1 through C6! Thanks! Charlie

    Does Tesla prefer you to finance with them?

    Yep, what you see is what you get. Ordered my 3 Plus at the sales store after a test drive. First thing the "salesman" said was none of them work on commission. You can probably invest the sales price and make more than what a loan will cost. I financed my 3 at 2.00% earlier this month...

    Will it come fully charged?

    After a three-day delivery time, I picked-up my 3 Plus with ten miles under 90% a week ago. Very thankful , as I had to drive 110 miles home! Since I drove on an interstate at high speed, I used 153 miles of my range, leaving me with 70 miles reserve. The 120VAC stock cable took over 24 hours...

    Master thread: Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    After reading some of the horror stories here, I feel somewhat relieved with my delivery experience. Ordered a red 3 Plus on the morning of 4 March after a test drive with a stated "2 - 4 week delivery" time. The new delivery center in Fort Myers (25 miles from me) will open on 15 March, so...
