    Anybody with a really good experience?

    My experience with purchasing 2 models 3's has been absolutely great. I also have no complaints about tesla service. it's iMHO so much better than working with ICE dealers even though the nearest service center is over 100 miles away. Non of the people i know personally have ever complained to...

    How is Tesla Customer Service nowadays (2020)?

    2 models 3's for over 2 years. i have had nothing but excellent experiences with Tesla service. Far better in my opinion than service for legacy cars since there are no dealers and you work directly with Tesla. FWIW I'm over 70 and have owned many cars. The experience of owning a Tesla is the...

    Why is the auto parking so bad? 8 Years later.

    tesla autopark has always worked fine for me. it's a bit slow - i want it that way for plenty of time to abort if anything goes wrong although it never has. I've used it fairly often for 2 years.

    Everyone notices panel gaps.....

    I own 2 models 3's including one very early one. I have friends with Teslas. There are a number that park next to me at work and I notice when I see a Tesla in a parking lot any where. I have never once noticed a panel gap.

    Service center distance?

    We have 2 model 3s (for 22 and 11 months) and live 100 miles from the nearest SC. my few experiences with the SC have been great. the last time there (for HW3 update to early M3) I was given a model S loaner even though I didn't ask for it. FWIW I really didn't like it - too big - couldn't wait...

    Am I the only one with a (nearly) flawless overall experience??

    my 2 model 3's have been perfect (~35000 miles total) from delivery. great fit/finish. no issues with paint or rattles or wind noise. I've only had very minor issues requiring visits to the SC and those have gone great (hw3 upgrade and replacement tires).

    Supercharger - Katy, TX

    the buccee's business model is to get customers out fast, hence although they sell lots of food there are no tables or chairs - get your food and leave. they think in terms of ev's requiring half an hour or more to charge and they don't want you in their store that long.

    Driver's seat thigh support too high.

    different strokes for..... I really like the m3 seats and have driven almost 35000 miles in mine. better than the other cars I've owned. I have a history of 2 back surgeries but my back likes the m3 seats. obviously there is something about every car (or every thing) that a minority of people...

    Service Center Suggestion - Tires issue

    I needed a tire replacement in December. I called the nearest service center, they answered the phone promptly, and quoted me the price. they stated that I did not need an appointment. I drove over, they changed the tire while I waited. it took about 30 minutes. they were entirely pleasant and...

    Supercharger - South Padre Island, TX

    ok. I stand corrected. I guess I've never seen an urban charger. they look different and work slowly.

    Supercharger - South Padre Island, TX

    I used it 2 weeks ago today. slightly difficult to find but no big deal. the real issue is that the 3 chargers are version 1 and very slow. pearl/sapphire next door have 5 destination chargers.

    Tesla model Y will kill the crossover competition

    reeler I entirely disagree with everything you said. imho tesla make the greatest automobile products on the market. I don't want a heated steering wheel. I never even use heated seats (yes i've lived in cold climes), I've had in other cars but don't want sat radio or a motorized trunk lid or...

    Navigation Directions has to Compete with Music/Radio Audio

    this is one of my favorite m3 features. I love that my music or audiobook is not paused or muted for nav instruction. since volume can be adjusted independently the relative volume can be whatever you like

    Model 3 Keyfob updated on Tesla shop to include passive entry

    I get the door opening and locking as you walk and walk away but what I really want to know is... if you are in the car for awhile with the fob (and no phone) does it stop the car from asking you to tap a keycard in order to put it into "gear" and drive?

    Unpopular Opinion: The 3 is a $30k car and was built as such

    I have 2 models 3's, an early production rwd and a more recent awd it is superior in build quality to the Hondas, Acuras, and BMWs i've owned very quiet, almost no cabin noise both came with homelink although paying a few hundred for it wouldn't have been noticeable to me autosteering and TACC...

    Anyone get autopark to work?

    I have 2 model 3's and have been using autopark regularly and frequently for 18 months. it has always worked perfectly. also, although I understand the desire to park away from other cars but if you do what do you need autopark for? anyone should be able to park a car easily in an empty part of...

    When you engage AP (not NOAP), what do you normally do to stop the nagging to hold the steering?

    if you do anything to a mechanical control about every 30 seconds, you will not get the nag. this includes change volume, change track, pause audio, change cruise speed, change cruise distance, voice command, and turn signal. I suspect pushing the wiper button or flashing the lights will do it...

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    my bumper cover was replaced. paid for entirely by insurance. great job and great customer service from the closest tesla certified body shop and my insurance company. note that the new bumper covers come unpainted.

    Self-referral supercharging miles?

    I bought a m3 last summer. in may I bought a 2nd one using my own referral code. I was credited with 10,000 free supercharger miles. unfortunately they expire after 6 months. i'll probably be able to use 5000 of them before they go away.

    Does anyone have the Evannex cup holder insert?

    the evannex cup holder I have fits very well and is worth having, ie better than nothing. however I am very disappointed in it because the tabs to hold the beverage container are very soft. if I place a full/just opened 12oz soda can in it, even moderate cornering will topple the can over enough...

    rather push a BMW than drive a Tesla

    my bmw was the only lemon car i've ever owned. traded it in after only 65000 miles when even the bmw dealer couldn't make it reliable. the build quality was awful even when new.

    Supercharger - Beaumont, Texas

    I can't agree. Winnie would be closer to half way between Channelview and Lake Charles and would be useful for trips to/from Bolivar. Also I think Parkdale mall would be a terrible location, too far from the interstate through often slow traffic.

    Consumer Reports Model 3 reliability rating: reliable?

    I have 2 model 3's. I love the service which has been excellent. build quality is great and at least as good (often better) as the hondas and bmws i've owned. they're more fun to drive than a Porsche 911 and have dozens of minor features that make them pure joy to own. add me to the chorus of...

    Supercharger - Beaumont, Texas

    More service layoffs. Sigh.

    autopilot doesn't have to be 100% perfect and never will be. what it needs to be is as good as the average human. 99.9% accurate would probably be better driving than that done by the humans where I live.

    how to bail out of voice command mode

    pressing the button again definitely doesn't work (2 different m3's). voice "cancel" doesn't work. i'll try swipe down just in case I haven't already tried it.

    how to bail out of voice command mode

    you accidently activate voice command while using the right scroll control. is there any way to immediately get out of voice command other than waiting however many seconds it takes to time out?

    Key FOB Summon Not Working for Anyone Else?

    I don't get all this fob negativity. we use fobs with our 2 m3's since we don't use a phone for unlocking. the fob works perfectly for me (lock/unlock/frunk/trunk) ALTHOUGH I don't ever use summon. for me it is well worth the price many times over.

    Supercharger - Henrietta, TX

    >seems like a lot of charging for that route I expect there will be a great deal of traffic at that site. although not an interstate it should have been. anyone from Houston or Dallas or Louisiana going to Albuquerque or Santa Fe or anywhere in Colorado. It's a lot of folks.
