    Why would someone do this . Mod tragedy.

    You will learn in the US it's mostly the white guilt crowd that takes offense for perceived racial slights on behalf of the people they think should be offended.

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    To clarify, I never asked Tesla for a battery replacement, never visited a service center over it, and never spoke to Tesla about my charge capping at all. I'm not into wasting my time, they've made their position clear on the issue, service techs and advisors have been directed not to...

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    I'm sure emotion played a role in my decision but I'm a pretty level headed person, my main concern was the value of these capped cars dropping as it became more widely known that they are crippled. The car was at the residual value where I could use the sale to fully fund the car I wanted...

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    Actually I didn't replace my Tesla with a Mercedes, that was posted above by someone above who was stereotyping me perhaps because of my username. I don't really want to discuss what I bought because I don't want to further trigger the sensitive ones here. Anyways I think this thread has run...

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    Here’s the harsh reality...most teslas currently on the road will likely have their supercharging speed capped at some point during what otherwise would be the normal lifespan of the battery. Tesla is promoting super fast charge rates when they know that their current fleet isn’t capable of even...

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    Your point about how often I really need fast supercharging is a good one. Obviously with 43k miles after 5.5 years I wasn't road tripping a lot. Part of the frustration was psychological, knowing that I couldn't on the occasion that I needed to. The other part of my decision to sell was my...

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    I've loved my S85, but when Tesla with no explanation or notice capped my supercharging speed to less than half the former speed with a software update almost a year ago as has been done to most if not all older cars. that was it for me. My car is now a city car. Long trips are not practical...

    The fit and finish on these cars is GARBAGE!

    You may be out whether you opt to or not. Tesla in the past has had a policy that if you reject two cars you won't be offered another. They've probably figured out that those customers will never be satisfied even after a sale, so why deal with the post sale headache.

    No longer sure i want a tesla at all...

    Wow. You realize the Bay Area is a hot spot in a global pandemic right? 700 people died on your home state yesterday. California is shut down. The factory is closed. Possibly temper your annoyance at your delayed car with that in mind.

    Diminished Value Claim (CA) for minor damage in 4-car Pile-Up?

    I successfully claimed diminished value from the insurance company of a woman that rear ended me at a red light. I hired a guy I found on this forum to do the back and forth for me with the insurance company. spent like $300 and made back 10 times that.

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    Personally I find it interesting and informative to see what people are buying after their first Tesla. I know I'm seriously considering a non tesla vehicle to replace my Model S given that Tesla has capped my and thousands of other older car's supercharging speed by more than half with a...

    Will Model Y be De-optioned to Follow Model 3?

    I suspect because it has to be licenced from Homelink that the cost is considerably more than just a $15 transceiver. Still it's annoying that it's not a factory option at least, especially since Tesla didn't stake their reputation on achieving a certain price point for the Y, unlike the 3.

    Range of Model 3 less than expected on my first long-ish trip

    Payload + cold temps. As you own the car longer you will come to the realization that supercharging speed and availability makes range less important. You had enough to do your trip under pretty extreme circumstances, that's what matters. There's no bonus points for unused range.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    It's been 9 months since this thread started, and the FAQ in the first post hasn't been updated in 3 months. Does anyone have any actual news about the lawsuit and current mediation with Tesla? I'm getting the distinct impression that there will be no resolution to this matter during my ownership.

    NoA is worthless, Autopilot is essentially unimproved from 2016-2017, and everybody has caught up.

    As someone who has been using autopilot since day 1, I would agree with the OP. In fact I would argue that autopilot circa 2016 was better than it is now. No nags and very helpful. Now I hardly use it, what's the point I have to keep my hands on the wheels the whole time tugging on it to stop...

    PG&E discontinuing EV-A rate

    I'm on EV-A grandfathered until Nov 2020, with NEM 1.0 due to solar. According to PGE, E-1 then becomes my cheapest plan. What is not clear to me is what rates PGE pays for my solar production with the E-1 plan. Anyone know? I tried calling PGE but it's completely hopeless to actually get anyone...

    Model 3 Track Mode V2...RIP BMW M3

    I"ve owned a couple BMW M3's in the past, an E36 and an E46. Don't miss them. You can assume that when the Model 3 performance becomes faster around the track than the BMW, the automotive press will bemoan "the lack of soul". That's press-speak for I can't find any objective means of preferring...

    opinions on trade-in offer for my S85

    I declined the trade-in offer. Will probably keep the car until battery warranty is almost gone, another 2 years.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    They left one thing off that list: deliberate software throttling to ensure the battery doesn't fail before the warranty runs out. Which is the actual reason and they know it. They meaning the higher ups at Tesla, likely your local service provider has no idea and Tesla prefers it that way.

    Wiki FAQ: MCU2 Upgrades

    I'm in the same situation but out of warranty, in terms of having a delaminationg IC1 screen. Hoping the MCU2 upgrade does include IC2, if it does it's a bargain for me. Although my main screen has no issues, I know all MCU1 screens are going to fail eventually due to the flash memory design fail.

    Tesla supposedly guarantees battery capacity within certain degradation limits with varying compliance. They make no guarantees about surcharging speed.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    If I had been told by Tesla 5 years ago that supercharging regularly would eventually cause my charging speeds to be cut in half, I would have behaved very differently. I would have used supercharging only for long trips instead of frequently (once a week), as I did. They need to compensate me...
