    Experiences with Tesla body repair and glass replacement (Ohio Area)

    Well the deer ran off, when I was going outside to inspect its rack for mounting and haunches for jerky... The Tesla service appointment leaves a lot to be desired, as I could not really determine if I needed to send it there or straight to a body shop. Guess the Tesla service center is going...

    Lane departure avoidance issues

    It has nearly taken me into a tractor, as it didn't like that I was going off the road with one side on a smaller country road to avoid the plow. It turns on every day at the same spot in the road where the lane widens for a turn on my route home. It jar's passengers with its shrill. Do not...

    Map not adjusting to scale local area

    I drive more than 50 miles on my commute one way... so that is not working. This was working last week, I have not installed software since that point.

    Map not adjusting to scale local area

    But what about not using a route? I dont use a route to drive to work daily, but the map most of the time is not zoomed enough to even show the road I am driving on. There is not point to the map if it is not going to scale at all.

    Map not adjusting to scale local area

    Just recently my maps has not been dynamically updating to show a closer portion of map to where I am driving. As such, it is too zoomed out so that my car is driving in parts of the map without road. Prior it would zoom to those locations to show my car on the road based on how much stuff...

    Thunk while supercharging

    Car now has loud thunks while super charging or charging at home when it is cold. Have not experienced until just recently. Was sitting in car reading news and sound went off. Felt it in the car frame. It seems disconcerting, since the car actually does tremor.

    tire rotation

    Does that work with the Model 3? The lift points are different, and seem to be close to being flush with battery.

    tire rotation

    Any persons using Discount Tire or other nationwide tire dealer in an area that is mostly Tesla free? Would they have the proper jack point tool? There is very few Teslas in the two county region around my home, so trying to gauge whether local Discount Tire, Firestone, Tireman, etc will be able...

    10,000 miles

    Do you plan on having Tesla Service replace the tires? I was going to try local tire place to get rotations, at some point. There are many options in area, from national chains to mom & pop stores. Speaking of tires, is there a 50000 mile rated tire that meets or exceeds fuel economy rating of...

    US Federal $7,500 Electric Vehicle Credit Expiry Date By Automaker

    That specific qualifier was not listed in what I heard, only in the article. He announced it at a union event, so that little inclusion would rally the attendance. I do not think it will happen to begin with, but will have even less chance keeping it as a union exclusive.

    10,000 miles

    Man, I thought I drive a lot... Just over 2500 today, with a month of possession coming on the 12th, but I had the TDI for a bit and drove the crap out of that until VW bought it back on July 30th. Since then nothing but model 3. How is tire rotations? Did you guys get them at recommended...

    Wall Street Journal Model 3 AWD Performance Review-Buckle Up

    In my opinion, the well known people who trolled this guy (e.g. Montana Skeptic) should be removed from Twitter, and should have his seeking alpha account rescinded. He clearly has no shame on this matter. Should be real world consequences to those, on all sides, who troll like this because...

    SR Battery - back to batch invites?

    And production is... 10x higher than when they started batch invites? Late November is when non-employees started getting invited... didnt reach 1k until extrapolated at end of December and when they started inviting employees, were doing like 100 a month.

    Apps to Measure Battery Degradation and other analytical data

    Looking for some input for third party applications that can measure things like battery degradation, expected vs actual range, and other statistical data. Off hand I do not know know of any by name. I know of them, but that does not help when trying to find a reputable one.

    Realistic Timeline for 35k base Model 3

    I think the opposite here in that the first thing to go is the PUP. They make more money on the battery than PUP and more people want the battery to be larger. Increase production of the lower trim level while keeping margins higher while wading through a mini production ramp up. I would have...

    Realistic Timeline for 35k base Model 3

    I am not sold on the strong demand part for the fully loaded versions. I worry that may be the Achilles heel of Tesla presently. I am not looking for a base model myself. I already have my 3, paid for by VW. But just pondering away at the companies future because I am now deeply vested in it.

    Realistic Timeline for 35k base Model 3

    Looking to start a conversation on whether the current production models, being the Model 3 with larger battery and upgraded trim, the Performance version, and the AWD drive of the larger battery/trim variant, are receiving enough demand to push back the introduction of the base 35k model. I am...

    Model 3 Supercharging

    It is a low use Supercharger (density of Tesla's in area is super low.... I would guess under 100 in the 3 county area) so could be a reason not updated yet.

    Model 3 Supercharging

    My understanding was that the Model 3 receives no free supercharging, whether that be in the form of kwH credit or free visits, etc. As I presently cannot charge at my own home (my 15 amp outlets are not grounded, and I do not yet have a 30 amp hookup in garage until Thursday) my only recourse...

    Recommended 14-30 Outlets

    Home is not my 'forever home', it is a starter. And as such, it only has 100 amp service . 50 amps to the car is too high, plus 30amps covers daily commute easily. Most RV outlets are not the same, curved 30 amp or similar to 10-30 but different pins. For whatever reason, they are strewn...

    Hot outlet reducing charging speed

    Any reason to use 8awg on a 30amp circuit? I know Tesla recommends 10awg for up to 100 ft, but I was going to ask for 8awg until reading their recommendation of 10. https://www.tesla.com/sites/default/files/pdfs/installation-guides/NEMA_10-30_installation_guide_NA_US_2017.pdf...
