    Supercharger - Yermo, CA (LIVE 21 Nov 2017, 18 V2 Stalls)

    i just saw this reply... oh you want to see baker that same day? :) all 40 chargers full and at least 10-12 waiting. o_O even more confusing there as there are several aisles, so at least 3 lines forming and people driving all over the damned place

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Culver Drive (LIVE 17 Apr 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    Not sure what rates people have been getting here but it's the slowest supercharger I've ever been to and I've been to a few. Been here 4 times, once was 50kw max, two times in the low 40kw range max, today was 30kw max at 26% charge. Stations pretty full, 80 to 90% capacity.

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Culver Drive (LIVE 17 Apr 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    charged here today. about 6 stalls down and coned off, tesla repair was there trying to fix it. slow charge (50kw at 35% SOC), but maybe because it was under repair.

    Duh. People are cheap. The ones who go supercharge for free aren't going to pay for parking. Of course they're not going to be used.

    Model Y -- Is this a good deal?

    a brand new car ordered from the website with the exact same specs (performance, blue, black interior 5 seat, FSD) is only 71K. No way i would take a USED car with over 5,300 miles PLUS the risk of shipping AND not being able to see and reject the car just to save 8.5K. (71K-61.5K-1K ship)...

    their rates are clearly posted on the sign at the entrance. $1.50 per 15 min. What the hell are you talking about.

    Those are just fundamental differences you have to get used to when going back and forth between electric and gas cars. Happens to everyone.

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    Congrats on the new car. I hate the fact that as a Tesla owner I have to be associated with a group of such pompous, arrogant, condescending, and self righteous pricks.

    Family man finding the S a little too tight. Is the X significantly better with kids?

    I have an S and X. I have 2 kids in car seats. The X is much better with car seats as the falcon wing doors make it easy to put kids in. Also my older can get in and take care of himself like a minivan without me worrying about him dinging someone's door. Space is a bit bigger if you pack a...

    Yellow Screen border, poor quality & workmanship, and poor customer service -- Arbitration

    Glad you fought the good fight. Tesla's approach to customer service is atrocious and needs to be changed. I am anxiously awaiting EV alternatives to catch up so Tesla can go bankrupt already. It's too bad everyone else is so far behind that Tesla doesn't give a rat's ass about their customers.

    Advice to my sister on Tesla purchase

    agreed. you could get a good car that doesn't have problems or you could get ones like mine (S&X) which collectively have had to be serviced at least ten times in the past year and a half for various issues. and tesla service is a pain in the ass. they kept my X seven days last month and...

    Tesla VS Taycan

    Being a member of both Porsche clubs and and owning 2 Teslas, knowing many people that do, I would have to say that Tesla owners have much more of a superiority complex than any other owner. Just look at this forum.

    Tesla banned me from purchasing another Tesla after vehicle buyback

    Pretty douchey of Tesla to do that AFTER the buyback.

    Growth of the Electrify America system- over 2000.

    fastest i could get was 34kW on a chademo, which given their 25 cents/min rate in CA, NV, and UT makes it about 44 cents/kwh plus a $1.00 connection fee. kind of pricey. and slow. i still welcome the options though.

    Electrify America Chargers and CHAdeMO

    what's the fastest charge anyone got on their CHADEMO on an EA station? best i could get on my 18' MX 75D was 34kW on two different stations.

    2018 100d Rebuilt-Salvage

    unfortunately you can't really trust anything anyone at tesla tells you. they are generally misinformed and sometimes will just tell bold faced lies. if you got something in writing signed by elon musk, then i'd say you have a 50/50 chance of tesla going through with it. some rando service...

    Do I buy the Y or keep my S?

    Model S pretty much has that same glass roof. It looks like nothing like that Pic in real life. If it did, you would be roasted to a crisp in 10 minutes.

    Tried using txt messages on my 2016 mcu1 with note 10+. Wouldn't do it, said it needed Android version 9 or higher (note 10+ has Android version 10) so whatever more buggy software from Tesla.

    2018 MX 75D vs 2020 Long Range Raven

    how's the range on your 75D after 44K miles? my '18 MX 75D with 25K mi range has gone to the crapper, i think it's these updates that keep coming in. 90% charge is <200mi with real world range around 130mi. the increased range is what's most appealing about the newer cars to me anyway.

    I had to fight for a loaner, they wanted to give me Uber credits but I refused as I have 2 kids in 2 car seats. Original estimate was 2 days. Thank goodness I refused the Uber. The loaner is fine but my commute struggles with no carpool access or autopilot. :( If I had known they would...

    Hope your work is done promptly. Dropped off my Tesla last WEDNESDAY (1 week ago) and the car is still sitting outside, hasn't even made it into the shop to start work yet. :confused:
