    Something Strange Going On

    That’s exactly how the car is behaving but I assure you 100% both fobs are in the house.

    Something Strange Going On

    Happens everywhere. Connected? Like what? I don’t think I have anything connected other than my cell phone. It’s so annoying though that because the car stays on, when I’m at home my phone stays connected to the car when I’m in the house, so I have to turn off Bluetooth.

    Something Strange Going On

    I have a 2016 90D (refresh). I have all updates, including updating both key fobs and new batteries in each. Lately (maybe the last 3 weeks) my car won’t turn off. After I leave the car, the music remains on, the lights stay on and the car won’t lock. If I use the fob to lock the car the...

    Model S winter tire experiences

    Sorry, I didn't see this sooner. Never looking back. X-Ice 3's are the best combination of quiet and performance in any snow tire I have used.

    Tire Shop GTA Recommendations

    I buy all of my tires from Tires23 in Mississauga. They’ve always had the best combination of price and service for me. No affiliation to the company other than having been a client since I moved back to Toronto 12 years ago,

    Real world range in the North

    In normal times, I drive from Toronto to Warren, MIchigan regularly to visit family. On a 100% charge I can make it door to door without charging. In the winter, I charge (usually) at Woodstock and sometimes I will top up in either at Port Huron or Roseville, just to make sure I make it. It is...

    Real world range in the North

    That is not really the issue. The issue is that I bought a car with 473km in range that is reduced to about 250km on the coldest days. While I agree that is usually enough for my day to day driving, when you explain that fact to a non-EV owner, that is a pretty unattractive future for your...

    Real world range in the North

    All good responses and the reason I posted this in the Canadian forum is because even though I love my car 100% of the time, I feel as though I have an entirely different car in the winter, where range is concerned.

    Real world range in the North

    I am just curious for those in the know....Does Tesla (or any EV manufacturer) have any plans to make their cars range truly comparable to ICE cars (especially in severe cold)? Let me explain what I mean.. I have a 90D. When new, the 100% range was 473km, however my car was CPO, so when I got...

    Tesla Estimate Ridiculous or Normal?

    It all seems ridiculous to me. Did you know about these things at time of purchase? If so, why did you buy it? If not, why not?

    Best racetrack in Ontario for Tesla model 3?

    LOL - we use to gather on Steeles Ave (in between Kennedy Rd. and Midland at a donut shop) and then pick our racing destination. Of course, I never had the type of car fast enough to race but I was just there to support all of the other morons (like me).

    Any news on the federal rebate and where it sits?

    I think, if that is truly the case, that’s great, however, I would simply ask, what is the purpose of any rebate program? My *guess* is (in theory) the purpose of the rebate is to get more people into no emissions vehicles. I would assume, by extension, this would also be meant to support the...

    Ontario HydroOne rate set to return to TOU on Feb 22

    Interesting to see if the lockdown is extended in Toronto and Peel (to March 9 - as requested) what they will do with Hydro rates in those areas.

    Secret way to put gas in a model 3!!!

    I have a gas snow blower and lawn mower and when I go get gas, I do so in my wife's RX. It's weird but I'm almost embarrassed to be seen at a gas station.

    Hot Spotting from Cell Phone

    Has anyone ever calculated the average value of unlimited supercharging and premium connectivity for the average owner (if there is such a thing)? Since those of us with older cars have both I wonder how much the loss of each has added to the lower price of the S?

    MCU 1 Recall - Canada

    I planned to use my navigation today at noon, so I put in the address before I went to bed last night with the hopes it would be ready by morning. Sort of like pre-heating! LMAO!!!!

    MCU 1 Recall - Canada

    This makes perfect sense to me and talk about a good way to keep your very loyal consumer...loyal!!! If they just deduct the cost of the recall from the upgrade, I am sure many would take the path of the upgrade, although I personally would still have an issue with the loss of my radio. While...

    MCU 1 Recall - Canada

    Tesla has decided to voluntarily recall certain Model S and Model X vehicles built before March 2018 that are equipped with an 8GB embedded MultiMediaCard (eMMC) in the media control unit because the eMMC may malfunction due to accumulated wear. Our records show that you own a Model S or Model X...

    I got the recall email this morning. Especially happy to see Tesla is reimbursing the people who paid for the work. Whether by choice or not, I am glad they did the right thing.

    MCU2 upgrade cost

    An argument so implausible that Tesla themselves don’t make it. “The main instrument panel (call the media control unit or “MCU”) eventually fails in all older Teslas (pre 2018) due to a defect in the design of MCU and overuse by excessive writing of data to the memory with firmware updates as...

    Buying a used Model S, 400kms to closest service center... Thoughts plz

    What makes you think this? My understanding is that many people are already out of pocket on it and they only extended the warranty coverage to 160k km. So if you are outside of that period how are you still covered?

    Hot Spotting from Cell Phone

    I had no idea about the connectivity issue having to reconnect every time. That is annoying. I had assumed (maybe wrongly), that a cell phone connection was better than Tesla’s connection which rarely climbs above two bars for me.

    Hot Spotting from Cell Phone

    Did you ever have premium connectivity and if so, how can you compare it to using your cell phone?

    Hot Spotting from Cell Phone

    I had NO idea you couldn’t use it while driving. Why would that be? Is it just about $$$$ or some safety issue or something else?

    Hot Spotting from Cell Phone

    I was curious to know if any Canadian Tesla owners are using their cell phone data for their cars (Spotify, Nav, browser etc,,,,)? I have an older Model S, with unlimited connectivity (so I have never done this) but I assumed people were doing this and I would like to hear if you find it...

    Sub Zero Package -- Is it a must in cold winter climates?

    I have it. Is it a must? 100% no, IMO. Do I enjoy it? Not really, but my wife and kids LOVE it. They would tell you it is 100% a must. My point is that I think the answer is personal to you and what you value. For me, I would rather have perforated cooling seats, than heated seats (which...

    Buying a used Model S, 400kms to closest service center... Thoughts plz

    I am a huge Tesla fanboy but the Model S (2018) or earlier with MCU1 is probably something I would avoid. To date, my Tesla has needed the equivalent of about $4,500 in repairs. Thankfully for me, about $2,800 of that happened while my car was under warranty but I have been out of pocket about...

    Tesla auto insurance premium varies greatly between different postal code??

    As an aside...I actually found a Vancouver based home insurer that was so much more reasonable than TD, it made sense for me to stop the alleged discounts for stacking policies. I use Square One Insurance for home but they do not offer auto but I still save money. I called a few auto insurers...

    Tesla auto insurance premium varies greatly between different postal code??

    A study by a York U prof estimated that Ontarians overpaid for auto insurance by $12.7 billion from 2011-2018. I say “estimated” because even though auto insurance is mandated by law, there is no transparency requirements for insurers. They have no obligation to disclose profits even though...

    MCU2 upgrade cost

    “Given Tesla’s projects of MCU repairs, even MY 2018 subject vehicles will experience 100% failure of the MCU” “the eMMC NAND flash memory device would become fully consumed and no longer be operational, leading to a failure of the media control unit” “Tesla provided confirmation that all...

    MCU1 NHTSA Recall

    The 2k makes it tempting to me but the loss of AM/FM radio is a killer. I listen to Spotify about 60% of the time but I do listen to local radio the rest + the odd Leafs game.

    MCU1 NHTSA Recall

    I have no clue. I usually rely on the smart people like you to educate the dummies like me. Tesla did it remotely so I wasn’t even aware they were working on my car when it was done.

    MCU2 upgrade cost

    I imagine you are well outside the warranty period? I am experiencing the early symptoms of MCU1 failure but thus far Tesla is refusing to address it. I just paid over $1,300 for a recent repair so, I am not that keen of spending any more money on this car.

    MCU1 NHTSA Recall

    For those interested, I had my appointment this morning with Tesla for my screen rebooting, Spotify not working, browser not working and Nav taking ages to find addresses. I got a message on my app last night that my “daughter board is not failing, however your home folder was full”, which they...

    MCU1 NHTSA Recall

    I just booked a service appointment for mine as I am increasingly concerned I am on the verge of failure. Screen is now shutting itself of about once a week (restart takes 4-7 minutes). When using Spotify, screen touch doesn’t work at all about 15% of the time, browser is 100% useless, 100% of...
