    Model 3 losing significant range after supposedly charging to charge limit

    Hello- Does anyone else have this issue? A couple of times in the past month, I’ve charged my model 3 to say 70% state of charge, it gives me a notification when it is done charging and then a couple of hours later I open the app and it starts charging again. For example, tonight I charged...

    Model 3 normally charges at 237-239v but at 231v now?

    Hey all, Apologies if this has been asked previously but I couldn’t find the exact same issue anywhere. Today I noticed that my model 3 is showing 231V while charging. I charge it at 30/32 Amps and usually see 237-240V. Any ideas why so much voltage sag? Thanks Chris

    Charge port light won’t change to dark blue, stuck on light blue

    SB 6586 - Do NOT let this happen!

    Everyone needs to contact their reps about this proposed bill. It is insane. 3.5 cents per mile in addition to existing fees for electric vehicles. Insanity.

    Car thought it was still plugged in, wouldn’t “start”

    I tried searching for this but I feel like I rarely have any luck with the search function on here. Has anyone ever unplugged their sleeping Tesla, got in and gone to push the brake to turn it on but the brake won’t press down as far as usual and the car wouldn’t turn “on?” I had this happen...

    Should not exceed 892 pounds for passengers and cargo

    Has anyone else ever noticed that the model 3 sticker inside the driver door says the maximum cargo including passengers and cargo should not exceed 892 pounds? This seems somewhat low to me. This is five passengers weighing 178 pounds each and no cargo.

    Distance between all superchargers?

    Has anyone ever made a chart of the distance between all superchargers? I’m guessing it isn’t really necessary because of abetterrouteplanner and other websites but I think it would be kind of a cool thing to know.

    Okay to run the AC at all times while driving?

    Is it okay to run the AC at all times while driving? Even when it’s comfortable in the car, if I turn off the AC, it starts to get stuffy and the windows start to fog. Is it bad for the car to constantly run the AC while driving? Thanks

    hello all. I took delivery of my model 3 on Saturday and it is my first Tesla and electric car. I’ve noticed several noises coming from the car. When it is charging it makes noises that I’m assuming are normal. When I open the door I hear somewhat of a clunking noise that I’m assuming is...

    hello all. Has anyone gone through Tesla for financing? Their financial document says they could shop for a loan from about 8 banks/credit unions. My question is, will I get 8 hard inquiries on my credit report at once because of this? Thanks

    Form 8936 for tax credit

    Why does form 8936 say maximum credit of $2500 on line 17? I haven’t worked through the whole form because it is confusing (the Tesla has at least 4 wheels so where are the instructions it is referring to for line 4?) Here’s the form for reference: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8936.pdf

    Any consistency in wait time?

    All, I’m guessing there are threads on this already but I couldn’t find a clear answer using the search function. Is there any consistency in terms of how long people are waiting for VINs/delivery after configuration? I FINALLY pulled the trigger (was waiting for SR, but wanted to take...

    How frequent is everyone seeing 3s in the Seattle area?

    Over the weekend I saw three 3s (two white and a red) and saw another on Friday as well (MSM). Two of them were in the Lakeland Hills area of Auburn and the other two were on I-5 north and south in the fife area.

    Need help determining if I can use the charger in my garage

    Hello all. A couple of years ago, we had a house built and an electric car charger was an add on option so we went for it. I did not know anything about electric car charging back then so I think I may not have the best set up for charging a model 3 when I eventually get one. What was...
