    Maintenance costs

    Had a Pleasant surprise from Tesla :). When I arrived for my service, the repair mechanic checked my car and much to my surprise told me I did not need the brake job I requested. This saved me $895.42. There is honesty by the Tesla folks. They could have done the brake job and charged me for and...

    Thank you for your thoughtful responses and analyses.

    Maintenance costs

    1) It makes no sense to prefer warranty work over cash work. 2) I am not stressed and am going to Tesla for the work.

    Maintenance costs

    All decimal points are in the correct place. I hesitate going to "a local shop". I want the job done right.

    Maintenance costs

    Yes, maintenance costs are high. I'm scheduled for: 1) Balancing & aligning wheels & rotating tires-$605.20 and 2) maintenence of brakes & rotors-$1094.76 for a grand total of $1757.62, including tax. This is at an hourly rate of $220. That's nearly half a million/year. No wonder Musk's a...

    ?Flashing HeadIghts

    Sometimes, when driving at night on an interstate, when approaching an overhead exit sign, suddenly a bright light flash is seen on the the sign. I check to see if my bright lights are on and they were not. What causes that?

    Spontaneous Lane Change

    Got it! I like being in control, so my wife says;)

    Spontaneous Lane Change

    Does it only do that when it's safe to make that lane change? It scared me the 1st time because I didn't know whether a car was in the left lane or not.

    Spontaneous Lane Change

    Recently downloaded ver. 2022.12.3.20. Today while driving with autopilot on a city street in the right lane of a 2 lane street, the left blinker suddenly came on and the car started moving to the left lane. I didn't want the left lane so I disengaged the autopilot and kept the car in the right...

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    What models and years did Teslas have matrix headlights? Can they be retrofitted to earlier models? Where can you get them?

    Trash Cans & Cones vs Cars & Trucks

    I try to ignore trash cans, but just can't. Should Tesla remove them, or is there some technological reason for them.

    Now that is a good, informative, educational useful answer. Thank you very much.

    Tesla Won't Install Ohmmu [aftermarket 12v battery]

    Becasuse I asked them to. There was a battery cost to them to install their battery; and no battery cost to them to install the battery.

    Tesla Won't Install Ohmmu [aftermarket 12v battery]

    Dosen't the car's charging system also handle a Ohmmu lithium battery? It sounds like a battery with a BMS is a good thing. Why does the car need to think it's deaing with a lead acid battery?

    Home Charging Cuts Off

    I think you are correct. Today, Saturday, when the low rate is in effect until 2pm, charging is continuing. Thanks for the info.

    Home Charging Cuts Off

    While at home, I plug in my home charger it charges for a while, 10-15 minutes, and then stops charging. I start charging and the same happens again. However, if I set the timer to start at midnight, it will charge during the night until it reached whatever level I had designated, usually 90%...

    Tesla Won't Install Ohmmu [aftermarket 12v battery]

    Does the OEM battery Tesla uses also have its own BMS? What is the difference?

    Tesla Won't Install Ohmmu [aftermarket 12v battery]

    Suggest reviewing other posts on this subject. Many have been stranded, in more ways than 1, with the original battery. Apparently this dosen't happen with Ohmmu.

    Tesla Won't Install Ohmmu [aftermarket 12v battery]

    Bought a 12V Ohmmu battery. Original 12V battery began failing as evidenced by screen warning. Took my T3 to Tesla repair service shop and asked to install the Ohmmu battery. When finished I looked in car and my new Ohmmu battery was still in original box, uninstalled. Asked service rep about it...

    Small Steering Wheel Indicator On Screen

    How about when the screen streering wheel is not visible? When it becomes available for activation, being so small it is hard to see, and there are no lane markers to tell you if its there or not.

    Small Steering Wheel Indicator On Screen

    Are you looking at the very small "steering wheel" in the upper left corner of your screen? It goes from gray to blue when AP is activated.

    Small Steering Wheel Indicator On Screen

    That's' because it is so small and barely noticeable.

    Small Steering Wheel Indicator On Screen

    The steering wheel indicator, which turns blue on the upper left of the screen when AP is on, is extremely small and hard to see, especially for us old-timers. It use to be much larger and a quick look at the screen would let you know immediately whether you are in AP mode. Now I have to squint...

    Car Did Nothing [to avoid potential collision while driving in manual mode]

    It's kind of hard to intentionally set up this scenario. I might end having an accident. Having said that, I'll use AP as much as is appropriate and if the same situation occurs, I'll post what happened.

    Thanks for the responses. What would have happened if I had been on Autopilot?

    Car Did Nothing [to avoid potential collision while driving in manual mode]

    On 2 separate occasions, while driving on a multilane highway in the city, a car to my left started coming close to me wanting to get in the lane I was in. As the cars came closer, I veered to the right so the cars wouldn't hit me. They continued to get closer to me so I jammed on the brakes so...

    Auto park

    Sometimes "PARK" doesn't kick in. Is there any way to "force" it to engage? Also, does it also work for parallel and head-in parking; or only backing in parking?

    Flashing Yellow Requires You To Stop

    There's a similar issue with overhead yellow caution lights, not related to traffic lights. These are lights that are intended to caution drivers, usually for oncoming traffic. However, my car "sees" them as the center light in a traffic lights and slows my car down thinking it will turn to a...

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    Which is the better lithium battery, irrespective of cost and availability? Mountain Pass Performance or Ohmmu?

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    Isn't the best 12V battery for the Tesla the Ohmmu 12V Lithium battery (12V Lithium Battery for TESLA Model 3) Yes, I know they are out-of-stock for now. Yes, I know the cost ~$450. But think of the long run! Isn't that what the new Teslas are coming out with?

    Model 3 12v battery dead

    The latest Teslas are coming out with Lithium 12V batteries. These are supposed to last much longer than the old ones. Can you get the new 12V batteries from Tesla?

    V11 - Remaining Trip Battery Mileage [where is it?]

    Prior to the upgrades, after setting up Navigation for a trip, the amount of battery remaining after the trip as well as whether there would be enough battery remaining for the return trip was indicated. I can't find it now. Is it still there somewhere else?
