    Short term storage in Colorado Springs?

    This is likely a bit of a long-shot, but does anyone know of a good place to stash a car for a couple of days? We will be visiting the area in the spring, and are looking to spend a couple days in the mountains. To do so, we'll likely need to rent a different car and leave the Tesla for a...

    Cruise engagement failure on hills

    I have a bug related to cruise engagement recently, and it's the only bug that I've found really annoying in a year of ownership. I believe this started with v10, and I'm currently on 2019.40.50.1: When going up a steep hill and attempting to engage cruise, the display indicates that it's been...

    Phantom drain in cold

    Over the last couple of days it's been fairly cold here- highs around 30F or so and cloudy (so, internal car temp is also around 30F). While parked at work (outside), I've been seeing phantom drain at a rate of 5mi/hr, instead of my usual 0.4mi/hr. No sentry or summon or anything on; haven't...

    Why a rated range instead of a rated efficiency?

    Why does Tesla advertise a rated range (250/310/325, etc.) instead of the energy per mile/km (220Wh/mi, etc.)? If they advertised efficiency, people wouldn't be fretting over displayed miles / degradation, and it would be much easier to compare across all EVs, wouldn't it?

    Squeak from front door speaker

    So I've had a very annoying / frequent squeaking from the passenger front door speaker cover for the past 3,000 miles or so. Pretty sure that's the problem, because if my wife is in the car, she can just press her foot against it and it goes away. I just tried making an appointment, hoping for...

    Body Repair Costs and Timelines

    My Model 3 was backed into in a parking lot in January (after < 30 days of ownership :mad:). I thought this information may be useful to others: Damage: While I don't have proof (wish Sentry was available then!), I'm confident that it was backed into by a pickup truck. The rear bumper was...

    Preheating when cabin is already comfortable?

    Today it's 40(F) out and sunny, so the interior of my car is over 70. But the regen is severely limited. How do I pre-heat the batter for better regen? Or is that not possible?

    Stupid App Question

    In the app, under Controls, there's a button that says Start. What does this do? Isn't the car always on? o_O Does it allow driving if you don't have the key card and aren't using your phone as key or something? 2nd question: my phone as a key seems to work fine for unlocking when walking...

    Electrical Issue?

    So I just picked up my MR today (yay!). Drove it ~100 miles home. Plugged it into brand new, professionally installed 14-50 outlet, and the whole house power flickered within a minute or so. Flickered again an hour or two later while the car was still charging (maybe when it finished?). Neither...

    Pay in full with personal check?

    I have pick-up appointment scheduled for Monday. I've seen several people say they were able to pay in full with a personal check no problem, but the email I got last night says if it's > $5,000 it needs to be cashier's check. Has anyone had them NOT accept a personal check for the full...
