    NEMA 6-50R

    I have a mobile connector and 6-50 and it works fine. The Tesla store sells a little kit that provides a support that goes under the mobile connector so it isn't "hanging" off of the 6-50. It also includes a arm that can be mounted on the wall next to the plug for keeping the charging cable in...

    Issues on trip from AZ to NY and Back

    Last time I took a long trip, I entered the end point into navigation, and it planned all the tops at SC along the way with no issues. I had also gone to "a better route planner" to see what it showed. www.abetterrouteplanner.com It tends to optimze for total charging time, rather than number...

    On tesla site, it lists "Gen 2 Mobile connector Bundle" and "corded mobile connector"

    Former is $275 and the latter is $400. Only difference I see is once has 5-15 and the other has a 14-50. What is the reason for $125 difference? Does this mean the the mobile connector that comes with the car does NOT support the higher charging rates

    Certified check or personal check

    My check was at the Fremont, CA delivery center. I asked ahead if I could make the down payment on the Tesla 3 LR when I arrived to pick up the car. The check was for about 25% the price of the car. ==>The car was financed by US Bank

    You will get BLACKBALLED if you dare give Tesla Service a bad review!

    My daugher had a problem that the service center hadn't fixed after 3 weeks. No help or response. So she looked into the lemon law in Washington state. She declared the car a lemon with the Washington state attorney general and notified Tesla as outlined in the account page. Guess what the...

    Cost of charge disappeared during supercharging

    This isn't a big deal. I was actually surprised when I was utilizing the free supercharger miles that it correctly no cost at the bottom right of the charging screen. So I incorrectly assumed that when I went back to paying for my miles that the number didn't accumulate anymore

    Cost of charge disappeared during supercharging

    I had 1000 free supercharger miles from a referral. While I utilized them, the charge cost stayed at zero during the charge and I wasn't billed. I am back to paying for my supercharges, but the accumulated cost as it charges is staying at zero. Anyone else seen this?

So now she is driving along one day in early July and the car report trouble with the front motor (see has...

    I am obviously missing something...Tesla allowing non-Tesla's to use Superchargers????

    The existence of the worldwide Superchanger network has been a huge differentiator for Tesla. Allowing other non-Tesla vehicles to use the Superchargers seems incorrect to me for several reasons: 1) Many Supercharger stations are already crowded during the day. Adding non-Tesla vehicles to...

    Best replacement tire for Michelin MXM4 Primacy

    I own a M3LR which has a top speed of 140mph. The OEM tire is W-rated which is need for M3P but is overkill for the M3LR. The reason for asking about this is that V-rated tires have a much better mileage warranted (typically between 50-70 thousand ) compared to the W-rated tires. Thoughts on...

    Daughters front electric motor died in her Y. Has anyone experienced this. How long did it take to get repaired?

    She got a "3" loaner for a Y. She got big drive fault warnies. So she stopped and Tesla towed it local Tesla. I set her expectations low as to how long it would take to get a new front motor.

    Complaint about shipping time from RPM Tesla

    Auto open frunk for $15 [non electric]

    I changed both of the struts in front and back a year and half ago and have had no problems. The question of it being harder to close the frunk is actually bogus. If you read the user manual, it says to use two hands, so the question of using one hand is mute anyway

    There is a control to consider diamond lane in navigation...It doesn't seem to do anything

    My thinking is: Waze has a diamond lane setting. And it then optimizes navigation by using diamond lane. I assumed it would work the same, especially since both Tesla and Waze get their traffic info from same place. I am now assuming it is a future feature. It doesn't show in the very...

    German Tesla 3 owners...What kind of battery consumption at autobahn speeds?

    Out of curiosity. When I last drove on the autobahn, on much of it the typical speed appeared to be about 160km/h. What kind of battery consumption do you see at those speeds? 2 kw per rated kw show on the display for example?

    Working with HOA for EV-Charging; California law

    We had a similar situation with satellite tv antenna. Federal law says that no one can't stop you from installing one AND it overrides a CCR. Our HOA lawyers quickly changed attitude when facing the federal law. I doubt that they can do otherwise for an override state law.
