    Hummer EV

    WSJ is reporting GM is making about 12 hummers a day with a 77,000 prospective buyer waiting list.:oops: No sales target from GM on Hummer, and a ramp coming. Saying once they vertically integrate cell production will deliver in the thousands. Will be interested to see if they reset they #'s on...

    False Positive Automatic Emergency Braking at 80mph

    Did the OP actually see AEB on the dash? I have had a couple. It displays that you have an alert, and shows in the alerts. AEB is much different than phantom braking, and feels like the seat belt became a three point harness when you needed a five pointer. Truly is impressive.

    Is a backup mobile connector necessary?

    If one doesn't have a wall connector you could set up the additional mobile connector in a less stressful way on the plug and make it semi permanent. Then you could always have the mobile connector with you at all times in the car. Might depend on ones use and traveling. Sometimes things come...

    Long drives with degrading battery

    Didn't see it, but maybe a suggestion of a switch to the good old % instead of miles. Some get fixated on miles and think they are going to disappear thus forcing the want to charge sooner. 25 or 30 miles left sometimes freaks people out. Even as they pull into the supercharger with said...

    Battery Charge Level Upon Delivery?

    Maybe just ask your SA. There really is nothing better than that. To say definitely never over 90% would rule out me. Good luck on your trip. Picked mine up and drove it home on a trip across the country.

    2017 Tesla S 100d long range for sale - Silver Metallic

    Just by the warranty expiration and assuming build date. Might want that in writing from Tesla. Have a 03/2017 build my self and it is not transferable. If transferable I would be a interested party in your car.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Haven't seen any videos of the feet of FSD Youtube Testers while driving, but in city settings taking a full intervention free approach from the accelerator I don't see how the results from other drivers would be anything close to what is portrayed in city settings during many Youtube videos.

    No CCS compatibility; legal?

    The large prongs below supply the juice. The top part becomes the communication to the power source. So you can't just plug in the J1772 portion using the adapter and expect any magic juice to flow from the CCS1.

    @PMFTanx Since you have done from what I read a little research on the Lemon Law in Michigan. Make sure all your service invoices match up to the same (1) below. Different things that may seem similar may be looked as different items. Not from Tesla experience. So keep all the info, and if...

    How long to charge at an 8kW Supercharger?

    I wish many people would first try the 120v plug so they get a baseline of the lowest charge rate. It can be very simple, and if time is not a constraint will allow decent travel with little effort. Get's one around town, and then back to the supercharger network. Sometimes the need for faster...

    72A Charger Upgrade

    Interesting. I am first owner on mine, but was never asked any questions on ownership during my upgrade. I was given pushback on why I wanted it. They also had to ask for it. To make sure car could accept. So maybe that's when they checked that I was original owner. Mine charged at reduced, and...

    Looking to possibly sell my 2016 Model X with Unlimited Supercharging for life.

    Are you the original owner? If not when was the car purchased, and did it move through an auction? Edit add: It seems like it was purchased in 2020 from a Toyota dealership in Oxnard according to Free Vin Check. Can Tesla remove FUSC from dealer cars that moved via auction or is that only FSD?
