    Lowest VIN NOT Delivered?

    Not sure why the long delay. I've been calling my local Tesla DS and pushing hard to get our car after seeing higher VIN's being delivered. My wife's old car is done on the 31st of this month and we got pushed higher in the line by explaining that we would be without a car after that date.

    Tracking P85D Next Generation Seats Delivery Thread

    Maybe they meant that from the factory's point of view all seats will be delivered to the appropriate service center by months end. When they call me back, I will ask for clarification.They have no control over the work load at the service center. Costa Mesa is always super busy. Luckily, I...

    Tracking P85D Next Generation Seats Delivery Thread

    Just called Tesla to see where my Next Gen seats are. Some how, no one at the factory recorded what seats were in my delivered car and the Delivery person did not fill out a request for the seats. If you are expecting replacement seats, and haven't been contacted you may need to contact Tesla...

    Will I make it?

    Slowing down is the most efficient way of getting to your destination. We were traveling from Portland Oregon to California. Had 28 miles to go with 14 miles in the battery. Under 32 degrees, mountain driving. Slowed down to 25 to make it. Made it with 1 mile to spare.

    Just a warning to new Tesla owners!

    Over a year ago, we were coming home from Portland and had a rear blow out. Had to be towed back to the Portland service center. Lost 60 miles of charge. Stopped at Three Feathers to charge using the Roadster charger. Left to early. With the cold and mountainous route to CA from Three...

    Vendor GP Automotive Renewal Service: Falcon5's Tesla Model S - Lots of photos!!

    Tesla did a poor job on the original clear coat that they offered with the car. Was unhappy with the work, but left it on. Had some front end work done and the repair shop did an even worse job than Tesla. Had to either remove it or replace it. Without the protective wrap the car would have...

    Vendor GP Automotive Renewal Service: Falcon5's Tesla Model S - Lots of photos!!

    This is my Signature Model S. Paid extra for the burgundy red. - - - Updated - - - Saved me at least $1000 when someone door dinged me and Moe fixed for a small amount. No painting required. Well worth the money we spent to protect the car.

    Tesla's "Model X Update" Email on June 16, 2014

    I was the one who knocked off the CF accent. It was a demo wheel package. Not for the road.

    As an engineer, I should have rebooted the drivers console and tested. If it didn't fix the issue, then reboot the center console. Try that approach. Should help figure out where in the problem may lie. Definitely in my case a software update broke the communications.

    This app is great. I have been using it for many months. Only had one problem with it not receiving data for a few days. Turns out it was something with the Tesla site. This morning I upgraded the cars firmware to 1.51.109. When I returned today, the app had no graph data. I restarted the...

    How Did You Hear About the Model S?

    I wanted to get an EV1, but the were only leasing them. Thought something stinky was up with that. Then they took them all back. Started looking into Aptera (Aptera Motors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Was one of the first 200 to sign up. Then delays started and pricing increased...

    Is it just me or does everyone want to race a tesla..

    Was in Dana Point and saw a group of 20+ Lamborghini's. Caught up to two at one light. For all their revving, all they saw was the rear of my Tesla until they passed me going 90+. Never let me catch up to them after that. :biggrin:

    Main Battery and 12V battery failure in the middle of the intersection.

    Replacement of the battery solved the problem. During my experience, there were no major safety issues. This was similar to flooding the carburetor on an ICE vehicle. Next time, I will contact service immediately and avoid getting towed.

    Main Battery and 12V battery failure in the middle of the intersection.

    Was about a half block from my client when I heard a thud after take off at an intersection. Car claimed to pull over immediately and restart car. Pulled onto side street and car came back to life. Made it to the client's and forgot about it. Saw this thread and thought it might be similar to...

    Kicked Out of a Motel for Charging at 12 Amps

    I would call the corporate offices and demand to talk to senior managment at the highest level and give them a detailed report of what happened. If the actual hotel is a franchise, corporate should be glad to hear about the problem as it reflects poorly on them.

    Why did you invest in Tesla?

    I bought 1500 shares on the second day after IPO. Paid a little more than I wanted, but plan on holding for a long time. Won't bail out early like I did on Apple (bought at $14, doubled shares, sold at $85). My investment and car are paid for in full with the current pricing:rolleyes: Wife...

    Model S Brake & Accelerator Pedal Positions

    My car is currently in the shop for something similar to the second days test drive at the Factory last year. Stopped at a light, traffic moved forward, checked left for traffic as I proceeded, saw that the driver in front of me had stopped. Paniced stomp on brake resulted in both pedals being...

    Thanks Tesla Roadside Service!

    Interestingly, the tow operator never left a bill. Said he would contact the repair center tomorrow. Tesla was upset that the company claimed something that wasn't true. The head of roadside assistance called and talked with the towing company manager. Not sure what will happen next. I am...
