    Toronto - Montreal

    Plugshare shows Westin downtown has 2 Tesla destination chargers as well as superchargers. Albert at Bay Suite Hotel shows 1 J1772. Best Western Plus Victoria Park shows 1 J1772. I haven't tried any of these, but just thought this might help. The Courtyard Marriott on Coventry shows 1 J1772 as...

    Canadian Stores and Service Centers

    Wow. I hope that the "here for ~2 yrs" status of the current service location at 835 Carling gets addressed at the same time. Wonderful if that happens.

    Ottawa service centre now in app?

    When driving westbound on Carling, if you're in one of the rightmost 2 lanes and look to the right, the signage is briefly visible as you go past Preston St. When driving eastbound on Carling, the signage is not visible, though the address number, 835, that's on the front of the building (south...

    Looking for Aero Wheels (Oakville)

    I'm assuming you're NOT interested in buying only the rims+tpms from Tesla itself? If you are, I know that Tesla Service will sell you just the rims with or without tpms. Hope this helps.

    Ottawa service centre now in app?

    Personally, I would love to see a Tesla sign/logo on the front. Right now the "For Lease" signage is not really reassuring to anyone that I've told about the location of the service centre.

    Passenger Side Mirror Heating

    Hi @Chiwahwah. I am waiting for the right combination of temps to see if the fogging continues. Unfortunately, I never received a confirmation of that issue being addressed in my first service call. So, I'll update if/when the fogging returns.

    Ottawa service centre now in app?

    Adding another data point... I spoke with one of the Mobile Service technicians (Patrick) yesterday and he stated that the service centre (845 Carling) will be open in September. He and others are currently stocking parts inventory, readying the service bays, etc.

    SuperCharger - North Bay, ON

    Hi @IHartEV, If you're considering staying overnight in North Bay, there is a destination charger at Clarion Resort Pinewood Park, 201 Pinewood Park Dr, North Bay. It's listed on Tesla's map of destination chargers. I have no personal experience with this location, but I am a fan of using...

    Both Keycard and Phone failed to unlock car

    It's possible that the car was starting up/booting/restarting/rebooting and you were attempting to use the keycard during this time. This is purely a guess on my part. On my end, sometimes when I walk up to car and pull door handle, it doesn't work. If I walk away a few steps and come back...

    Ontario EVIP rebates update

    I think something has gone amiss. The cheque could have been lost. Perhaps you could try calling the phone number(s) that were on the form that you completed and submitted. On mine, the numbers are: Ministry of Finance at 905-433-5939 or 1-866-668-8297. My form also had a different email...

    Ontario EVIP rebates update

    Yes, snail mail. Yes, some of my important/critical mail has been mis-directed/mis-delivered (sometimes permanently). This was my #1 fear when the new MTO decided to switch from direct deposit to mailed cheques. My #2 fear was they would have "lost" my application. This fear came true but I...

    How is your drive today

    Hi @Stan K, Yes, I get the noise that sounds like ice rubbing against something "not ice" (metalm glass, plastic, whatever). This happens most often the morning after a car wash when water accumulated in some holding spots and turned to ice. After a couple of days the rattling dies down...

    M3 Winter driving causing battery degradation?

    I've taken to simply leaving the energy display up while driving (when I don't need the map). What I've learned is that there is a considerable battery price to pay for the comfort of instant heat and a toasty cabin (~600wh/km for the initial few kms). I've also learned that many short trips...

    Too cold to start

    I didn't check the km (but will later today). I may be wrong, but my understanding is that the battery percentage displayed on the screen & app is actual. As in there's 76% charge left in the battery. How many kms/miles you/I can get from that 76% may depend on quite a few factors...

    Canadian Tesla YouTubers

    The only other one I have on my list of Canadian Tesla YouTubers is Dax The Straight Pipes are Canadian as well, but they're more about general car (sometimes/infrequent EV) reviews.

    Too cold to start

    Observations in Ottawa this morning after last night's low of -23ºC Conditions - Both cars left unplugged overnight (simply forgot to plug one in) - No garage or carport, just snow-covered driveway - EVSE (Flo Home G5, J1772 plug only, mounted on outside wall) is shared 'cause Leaf came first...

    Do the black triangles at the base of your side mirrors stick out?

    I have this too (side-mirror peeling away). It hasn't been fixed yet because it isn't critical to my enjoyment of the car (so far). I've kept an eye on it and it hasn't gotten worse since I picked up the car. Hopefully will be fixed at next service appointment.

    Headlights flickering, cause?

    I've also had this happen twice. Both times it was cold, less than -10ºC. I noticed only at night as the M3 sits outside all the time.

    Supercharger costs, and is Tesla taking advantage of us?

    My thoughts on supercharger pricing... What I believe about Tesla's pricing/charge cost, motives, etc is a distant concern. My primary concern is the availability of a charging station when I arrive to charge and the distribution of supercharging locations. As long as there is a charging...

    Hi Tam, I just tried your suggestion. Here's the steps I took. 1) Turned off PIN to drive Still can't view the trip meter(s) or tire pressure 2) Restarted the touchscreen (holding down steering wheel buttons) Still can't view the trip meter(s) or tire pressure 3) Turned ON PIN to drive...

    Canada EnerGuide Tesla Model 3

    In my observations, the Energy display (app launcher button -> Energy) is accurate. If you're driving a long distance, set it to "average range" and if you're using the built-in navigation, tap on Trip at the top right. That, I've found, is quite accurate in its predictions. Actual usage vs...

    Video - Tesla Model 3 Cold Weather Charging Issue

    There appear to be 12v hair dryers and car warmers available on Amazon (and other places I'm sure). I didn't want to put in links here because there are dozens of options with varying degrees of appeal (as well as consumer ratings). I searched for: 12v hair dryer car portable car heater

    How do you unplug the charger in the morning?

    Hi @Vawlkus, I'm not sure if this answers your question about weatherproof, but here are some selected items from the Gen 2 UMC Owners Manual... - Do not expose the Mobile Connector to flammable or harsh chemicals or vapours. Do not use or store the Mobile Connector in a recessed area or below...

    46.2 and phantom drain?

    I was also trying to see whether there was any improvements in that regard. To test, I left the car not charging for the past 3 days (Ottawa temps) and have observed a much smaller daily drop overnight than usual. I don't have numbers (temps, % drop overnight, etc) but definitely noticeable to...

    Passenger Side Mirror Heating

    Hi @Nikkin, I'm experiencing the same issue. A few days ago I noticed this after a snowfall when, in a rush, I only cleared the centre portion of each side mirror. Turned on the rear defroster and drove as normal. After a few mins (at least 5), the driver's side mirror was fully cleared...

    Intermittent LTE/3G reception - anyone else?

    The loss of LTE/3G connectivity happened to me at the Port Hope, ON supercharger (during charging) over the weekend which resulted in no notifications of "charging almost complete" and "charging complete". It was pretty much luck that I glanced at the watch and headed back to the car based on...

    Model 3 doors/windows/mirrors + Ice = trouble

    The 2 cold weather improvements that I've observed are: 1) the windows don't close all the way to the top of the rubber trim after the door is closed (this behaviour is observable on all 4 doors) 2) the charge port no longer locks the charge plug into the port when using the J1772->Tesla...

    Overheat protection issues

    Yes it should. I am at a loss as to why not. I have monitored mine for this behaviour over many hot days and it appears to follow the 12hr window.

    Overheat protection issues

    My understanding from the release notes is: "When active, your vehicle prevents the interior temperature from exceeding 105F/40C for up to 12 hours after you exit your vehicle.” So, I think this means that if you don't enter/exit your vehicle after the 12 hrs is up, the vehicle no longer...

    Supercharger - Baie-Saint-Paul QC

    Thanks @PLUS EV, I'll leave it alone as long as all other things are working. Good to know it could simply be a result of lack of available power. If it's consistently low, perhaps Tesla should update their listing/description to reflect that, like they do for the Laval,QC supercharger...
