    Model S Plaid Delivered Early!

    Even back in 2017, my MS was delivered with the front plate on and is not required in MI. Luckily it comes off with no permanent damage.

    The only time I felt this is when my car was slowing down on regen, hit a bump and regen briefly let off…which then “felt” like an acceleration.

    May sell my Model S Plaid

    I live in MI. There are 2 service centers. East and West side of state. But if one lives in Northern MI, that’s a longer drive. Service can be bad for some. I have owned a Tesla going on 6 years and when I first bought it, NO service centers existed in MI. But they do have mobile service...

    From San Jose, CA to Los Angeles, CA

    I haven’t done that specific route but I just finished a 5,300 mile road trip and I strictly used the in car NAV. Since it’s your first time, err on the side of over charging (the NAV is good about giving a decent buffer) so that way you have less chance of a range anxiety situation. Once you...

    Moving from Mercedes E450 to Model S

    There should be some Model S vehicles available for test drive by August. They were probably all recently sold due to end of quarter push. Test drive one for yourself to find out for sure.

    Service says $22k for new battery on 2012 Model S

    What qty of people are having to replace their batteries? Are you suggesting that every Tesla will need this replacement every 8.5 years?

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    If they are still working and able to accumulate shares, I’d d welcome low share prices. I remember an employee ranting in a video a couple years back how she was upset with Elon, etc for knocking down the stock price. Within a handful of months, the SP was at new highs.

    Tesla dashcam vs aftermarket one

    I have both. I bought the 4 dashcams prior to getting the dashcam feature but I like having both still. Higher res and wider angle if needed. Also a good backup in case one or the other failed. For the two side cameras, I have them in the back seat tiny window but facing forward. Gets...

    Our first EV road trip - 5,000+ miles in the South West USA

    Nice. I just finished a 5,300 mile road trip from MI to WY, MT and CO and the states in between. Went very well using the Tesla superchargers exclusively. Also can EASILY drive over 1,200 miles in less than two days while stopping for meals, only driving during daylight hours and staying in a...

    Teslas are being delivered too fast for Supercharger Growth

    I just finished a 5,300 mile road trip from MI, through MT, CO, WY and states in between. Not once did I have to wait for a supercharger location. And I strictly used superchargers. So in areas like CA and east coast, yes there needs to be more added and soon. For much of the rest of the US...

    [UPDATED] 2 die in Tesla crash - NHTSA reports driver seat occupied

    How is it not relevant? Several car makers are going this route and appears to be the trend wether you like it or not. Certainly not just Tesla. So you better have a plan. If you are that concerned, you should always carry a glass breaker tool on your key chain. There’s a chance that the...

    [UPDATED] 2 die in Tesla crash - NHTSA reports driver seat occupied

    It’s the type of door lock. Not just Tesla. “Four years ago, the 75-year-old owner of a 2006 Cadillac XLR was trapped inside of his vehicle for 14 hours after its battery died, leaving the electronic door releases inoperable. He could have immediately released himself had he known the location...

    SHOULD TESLA BE WORRIED? (2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB Starts at $10k Less Than a Tesla Model Y)

    Just finished a 5,300 mile road trip strictly on supercharger network with my 2017 MS. Absolutely flawless. Every stall worked the first time. Never had to try a different one. As far as EA charging network? Still a LONG way to go in comparison to Tesla. Edit - TLDW - EA network stalls...

    Recapping my 3500 mile road trip frustrations

    I’m on a 5k road trip right now from MI through the west. About 3.5k miles so far and been fantastic. I use Tesla NAV for the entire trip but I often manually pick a Tesla supercharger if I want to avoid a busy town or some other reason. The waypoint and edit trip is great. I have stopped...

    Would be great if they are software limiting until the entire line gets switched to 4680 at all factories to prevent people from wanting to Osborne the product and wait. Then once Tesla is producing all model Y’s and 3’s with 4680, crank up the charge rate.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Correct. By law. Same is true for any other carmaker in US although rates can vary. Even if picked up at the factory. “The United States government requires it. That's because destination fees get based on direct costs. These costs are above and beyond the overhead companies must incur in...

    I just consider TSLAQ as “useful idiots”. We eventually get their money. Most like to brag about a single trade where they made a killing but then fail to mention how they end up losing all and more on the next.

    Elon & Twitter

    Here’s my take: (not that you asked me and probably don’t care but here it is anyway ;) ) What is Elon’s goal? To get everyone to switch to EVs and sustainable energy ASAP. NOT to just buy a Tesla. Tesla has plenty of business. Dems already will buy EVs. Republicans are a bit less likely...
