    My used 2013 P85 came with unlimited supercharging

    even older cars lost free supercharging if they were sold via a dealer at some point - it's been that way since the beginning. Not saying it makes sense or that it's fair or even right...

    Supercharger - Tucson, AZ - West River Road

    @JWood :Thinner cables = v3 / 250 kw It is not appropriate to judge V3 performance with a classic 85 battery given concerns like charge-gate and battery-gate

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    If someone is the third owner of a car and the manufacturer says something is no longer original spec, I’d side w the manufacturer. That’s the deal w buying a mult owner used car

    LR Model X 2022 doesn’t turn off! Help needed!

    Get out, lock the door. If you’re concerned about the seat sensor, put in drive, come to stop, and lift butt off seat —- car should go into park. If it doesn’t, sensor has issues

    what can cause 800-900Wh/mi result in consumption graph?

    Yea. Floored it for a bit. Really, don’t you want them to put the car through a stress test to clear it for your use before you floor it and something it goes wrong? Let’s be honest a service technician at Tesla isn’t taking a model X 75 for a joyride when there are plaids around also

    Californian here - thanks to our politics, we have a lot of crime experience to share. You are at very low risk for the car itself to be stolen. Using PIN to drive will provide a second layer of safety if you are still worried about this. On the other hand, Teslas are favorites for smash and...

    Supercharger - La Mesa, CA (LIVE 18 Mar 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    A 2013 S60? Tire size (19 inch vs 21) and battery degradation are significant issues to consider. Having done that drive before in an 85s with a brand new 90 battery, I’d say an old 60 may barely make it there but has has zero chance of making the trip back west given the elevation and head winds.

    Tire protection from discount tire

    there are going to folks that will insist on buying it despite all the numbers saying otherwise

    When will the Model Y get the new 5MP cameras?

    this is for AP3.0 which will first be running on the Cybertruck... so, expect it 6months or so after Cybertruck is in full production (not initial production). My guess early 2024
  24. gaswalla

    Does your SOC ever show higher than your charging set point?

    yes.. seems to be from rebalancing as you'll see more change after an hour or so and more change when the charge itself was significant (eg: 10% to 90%)

    Tire protection from discount tire

    tires wear out so fast on the Teslas that the road hazard warranty is less appealing IMO. I have 'self insured' and come out ahead in the past 10 years with my Model S. If the road hazard warranty is a big deal for you, take a look at TireRack.com - it's included for free

    Battery longevity is maximized at 50 percent state of charge.

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    LOL.. The recall notice states Tesla will pay for the fix. You may want to send him a copy of that letter (post #73 above). Customer service experience consistency is non-existent at Tesla

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    sure seems like a refurb/reman battery. Just bc you paid a fee out of pocket does not mean you agreed to buy a new battery. Folks with vintage S's are being the given the option of around 12-14k for a refurb or 20k for a new battery. (In the case of the S, the new battery is far superior...

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    The big incentive to get it after purchase is that registration fees for the life of the car are based on initial purchase price.

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    I have advised at least ten friends to skip FSD and get performance instead - every one of them has thanked me. If FSD had a graduated purchase ability: (eg: 3k for TACC, 6k for NOA, 12k for City Streets) AND it transferred with the driver to a future Tesla, I'd say it's reasonable to pick your...

    Repeated "Popping/ticking" Sound from Rear Speaker

    Yes, I experienced this in my 2018 model 3. It’s a complete mind-boggling thing when it occurs but clearly was related to the rear camera wiring harness that has been recalled. After I got that fixed - out of pocket unfortunately- all the speaker issues went away. Are you having any issues...
  38. gaswalla

    Will this Model 3 be totaled by insurance?

    Ouch. Two weeks old. I’ve seen teslas totaled for less damage. And I’ve seen non Teslas totaled with similar damage. So, I’d say it’s totaled

    Unlimited supercharging unavailable for model x

    sorry to say, this is an error. It's in the "contract" so you can force the issue, but with prices being what they are now compared to what you paid for it, you have two basic choices... sell the car for a small profit or break even, or you can force tesla to repurchase it. Realize, it's an...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Carmel Valley (16 V3 stalls, permit filed)

    It’s been one year since the original post - this location is superior than the Torrey Hills location for out-of-town folks, so hope it’s gets built here. (BTW, has anyone noticed that literally 1/4 of cars on local streets in Carmel Valley are Teslas)
