    If an iPhone and BMW M3 had a child, it would be a Tesla - 3+yrs/40k miles report

    I've been driving a Tesla for almost 4 years - it's absolutely amazing and I'm never going back to gas - that would be like using the new latest iPhone then going back to an old flip phone. If the new iPhone and a BMW mated, it's child would be a Tesla. Insurance on my 2018 model w/ full max...

    Paid in Full 1 Month Ago with No End In Sight

    Sorry to hear about the delay. Probably just luck of the draw w/ the biggest factor being Texas laws, followed by delivery logistics, compounded by the recent crazy ramp-up from a couple thousand to 5000-6000 vehicles/week. That explanation may not be all the factors involved in your...

    Delivery - Accepted!

    LOL...FIA is a real thing. So much so that I waited many months before ordering my Model S, and missed many months of driving, from unfounded fears in the end. After 3 years in a Tesla, I'll never drive gas again

    The yellow screen fringe, seems to be a bigger issue for them.

    My July 2015 70D has never developed this @ 3 years/36,000 miles. I guess they started using a different material in later years that was prone to the issue

    What Wh/mi are you getting with AWD and P cars?

    Nice vid report, thank you. Could you please list lifetime miles and lifetime kWh/mi? 18" or 19" wheels"? Aero's on?

    2012 Black RWD Tesla Model S

    Folks, I don't know efusco other than tmc - if anyone is looking for a pre-owned Model S, this is a good deal. I've watch his posts over the years and he took good care of this car

    Supercharger rates

    One of my favorite aspects of driving EV is never having to visit a gas station again. Over time, it becomes completely normal to just plug in at home upon arrival. My son has spent most of his life seeing that this is actually how a car gets fueled (in your garage) lol Over 3yr/36,000 miles...

    What Wh/mi are you getting with AWD and P cars?

    Any more reports of AWD Model 3 efficiency? Helpful to know: -AWD of AWD-P -lifetime kWh/mi -lifetime mileage -state/region of country (avg temps) -18" 19" wheels -aero's on?

    AWD Non-Performance White Interior VIN 991XX Next Week!

    FSD or not

    In 2015 when I purchased AP1, autopilot was not yet enabled until after several months of ownership. SO AMAZING waking up one morning after an OTA update (while I slept) to autopilot features. I would not have opted for FSD in 2015 knowing it was a couple years away. It was so much fun having...

    3 Year/36,000 report, my experience w/ Tesla

    Yes, this 250,000 mile pack needed service once. The TeslaLoop 200,000 mile pack was replaced, reportedly due to software issue showing the pack had 6% less than actual range. The software OTA update was not yet available for months, so Tesla replaced the pack instead under it's Unlimited...

    3 Year/36,000 report, my experience w/ Tesla

    -This Model S has 250,000 miles w/ 7% degradation as of last year - pretty good (but anecdotal) Tesla Model S Surpasses 250,000 Miles - Just 7% Battery Degradation -My 70D was closer to 2% degradation @ 36,000 miles (again anecdotal) -11.5% seems high based on individual reports I've seen...

    P3D Highway Range — Early Cautious Optimism

    As a comparison for those interested, 3yr/36,000 miles in my 2015 S 70D, 18" wheels, gave a lifetime 333kWh/mi

    3 Year/36,000 report, my experience w/ Tesla

    Tesla used a lot Continentals and Goodyears in early years, which seemed to wear relatively fast. They switched to Michelin Primacy for awhile. That's what I had and would expect ~40k miles until tires wear to 3/32

    Model X Battery Loss

    "It would be interesting to see data, if available, on whether there is an increased battery life depreciation on those that were only ever charged at supercharging stations." Just N=1 here, but my <2%/36k miles above was using ~15% supercharging and often charging to 100% before leaving home...

    3 Year/36,000 report, my experience w/ Tesla

    In regards to "battery degredation" topic: -Reading hundreds of posts on the same topic over the years, the consensus seems to be these mostly aren't real losses. The car calculates range based on measuring State-Of-Charge and translates this into miles of range left. When cars are routinely...

    Central Jersey Tire Places + Mileage From Tires

    - After 36,000 miles, tires are down to 4/32 all around, so I would give 18" Michelin Primacy an ~40,000mile lifespan, on an AWD Model S 70D, with occasional spirited driving/launches and always full-regen-braking -tires wear was very even within 1/32 measurement among all tires over the past 3...

    Woo-hoo. Cherry Hill, NJ Tesla store officially open 4/13/2018

    When I had paint repair for Model S at a Tesla Authorized facility (near Devon, PA) they did an amazing job - the rest of their parking lot was also high-end cars and they're vetted by Tesla, so I wouldn't worry about it not looking great. Please let us know what kind of paint defect and pics...

    Dumping ICE for EV maybe

    For me, switching from gas to Tesla, was like switching from my old blackberry/flip-phone to a new iphone, I'm never going back

    Is this a record?

    Kind of mind-boggling how much they've scaled in the past year, but they've ramped up to producing almost 1000 cars/day now. The store near me seems to be filling the parking lot to the brim about every other day w/ new 3's And my suspicion is that they stockpiled to make sure they didn't hit...

    4,700 miles on my Model 3 and my tires are on the wear bar

    Need Advice On End of Lease Situation on Model S

    I would buy it. The only reason I returned my 70D after my 3 year lease was bc it was in a descent accident/lots of front end damage/airbags. The repair shop fixed like new (even better I think the panels were even better aligned lol). But I knew if I ever sold it, I'd take the...

    Would it be dumb to NOT install a charger at my house? (Dallas)

    It's great to just pull into the garage and plug into the HPWC each day, have a full charge (80 or 90% if you choose) in the a.m. - one of the greatest things about going electric. You'll get sick of having to pull out the Mobile charger each day as well. And you shouldn't leave the Mobile...
