    Sirius XM App Issue

    Can’t find anything about this specific issue - I have an iPhone X with the Sirius XM app and use it to listen to Sirius in my 2018 Model 3 via Bluetooth. My phone is set as my “priority device” in my car’s Bluetooth settings. After driving and listening to Sirius, I park and exit my car, and...

    Tire Repair/Patch Shop in Arlington, VA?

    Anyone know of a reputable tire shop in Arlington, VA where I can get a slow leak in one of my tires patched up? I’ve called around and can’t find anyone that’s familiar with working on Teslas. And I don’t feel like waiting for a month for my service appointment.

    Anyone Ever Wrongfully Towed?

    Just curious if anyone has been subject to their car being towed against their will and if it caused any damage due to the tow company’s negligence. I would assume that not all drivers know/understand the nuances of towing a Tesla and how much harm it could do if not done properly.

    Charger Won’t Lock Anymore

    I used to hear the “lock” sound after plugging my WC into my car. Now it doesn’t lock, ever. Even if I lock my car and/or the car is actively charging; I can just pull the charger out without having to push the release button. I’ve read about this before and the solution was the little locking...

    Help! Rear Tint Question

    About to get my Model 3 tinted and the shop I’m going to (TintFX in Vienna, VA) told me the only option available to get the rear window done in one piece is 3M Color Stable. Problem is I want to go with 3M Crystalline, which the shop told me they could do in 2 pieces. Not the end of the world...

    Nail in tire and no service center

    Live in Arlington, VA and got a nail in my tire. The Tyson’s Corner service center won’t let me book an appointment through the app (the closest I can get is is Richmond). Two questions: 1. Does anyone know if the Tyson’s service center is actually still open for service business? 2. Anyone...

    No WiFi? No problem!

    Botton line up front: If your iPhone has tether/hotspot capability, you can link your Model 3's WiFi to it to "trick" the car into thinking it's on WiFi. Back story: I live in an apartment complex and have zero access to WiFi. I've tried driving around to stores/shops in my area to get on...

    Outdoor Cover Blew Off! Ugh!

    I’m on an extended work trip and a colleague just sent me a pic of my helpless car being exposed to the elements for God knows how long. Apparently the cover blew off. It doesn’t really get THAT windy in Virginia so I don’t know what gives. Has anyone else had a similar experience or have a...

    Supercharging Bug

    When I supercharger, the “Current Session” cost/charge always indicates $0.00 (see bottom right of the screen). That amount remains indefinitely even though the location of last supercharge updates and my Tesla account updates and indicates the proper $ amount I was charged. Any ideas?

    Final cost question

    About to go pick up my cashiers check and am confused on the amount I should put on it (and ISA won’t respond). The first page of my MVPA says the total cost is $57,500. On my order summary page (via my Tesla online account) says my estimated cost is $56,501. This is also the same amount on...

    ChargePoint 3.3 kW Charger Question

    Anyone have any experience charging a Model 3 at the subject line? There’s 2 of these next door to my buiding and I’m curious about the mph charge rate (Google results are all over the map). If anyone’s curious - the charge is $1/hr for the first 3 hours, then $2.75/hr after that.

    Does weight have an affect on range?

    Page 55 of the M3 owner’s manual lists “Driving Tips to Maximize Range” and goes on to state “Lighten your load by removing any unnecessary cargo.” Has anyone had any real world experience with this? A quick google search denies this principle but I feel like the owner’s manual wouldn’t lie...

    Modify Order Phone Number?

    There used to be a phone number available to those who wish to modify their orders on the “manage” page for the Model 3...it’s no longer there and I don’t have the option to edit online as my oder profile has been 100% complete for weeks. Does anyone have this number? The generic sales number...
