    Small paint defect on the hood

    I just got my car recently and while wiping down the hood, noticed this paint defect near the middle. I'm not sure what happened but like some kind of hole there and they used some bad touch-up paint to try to cover it up? Is this something that could be fixable by the service center? Any...

    Changing from Loan to Cash before delivery?

    I have a Model Y LR on order with a EDD of Sep 2022 (it used to be Apr 2022 but it got delayed). I don't have an assigned VIN yet. I just got approved for a loan from a Tesla preferred partner (turns out it's Wells Fargo Auto). I asked a service rep if it's possible for me to switch back to a...

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    After a year of delays and 2 failed installation attempts, my third installation attempt was supposed to happen next Tuesday. They could not proceed with the 2 previous installation attempts because they found some flaws in the design plans on the day of the install. Curious to see if they had...

    Can Tesla renege on the Solar Loan Agreement?

    I have a signed Solar Loan Agreement on my account page. The loan agreement indicates that it is a $0 down loan. In other words, my Loan Amount is equal to the Cash Amount if I had chosen the Cash option. Tesla just sent me another System Design to accept, but this time, it indicates that I...

    Installation in a flood zone

    I live in a flood zone where all the living space is on the second floor, with the whole ground floor designated as a garage (we also have power outlets in the garage). Tesla was supposed to come out today to do my solar + powerwall installation. The guy saw that my main utility panel was on...

Unfortunately (at least in my opinion), my main panel is currently placed right next to my front door. I...
