    Is 8-12 Week Delivery Estimate accurate these days?

    Tesla site has 3-7 week delivery for All Vehicles. Seems like an excessive amount of time. Is there a chance that it is related to battery day? More range for all vehicles? or just Model S & X? Not ordering a new car till later in the year or early next year but curious. Hoping they increase...

    No more $35K Model 3?

    No reason to have a Tesla with less than 264 miles per charge. The price of the existing rear wheel drive model 3 will continue to drop and eventually be 35k

    For discussing the issue of locals charging at California Superchargers

    I believe that some early Tesla owners from 2012+2013 charging at their local supercharger feel like it is ok as in the early days Tesla said "free supercharging for life" and at first I do not believe it was for long distance only? Also $2000 extra for SUPERCHARGING HARDWARE on configuration...

    bubbles on touchscreen

    Bummer that it did not happen during warrantee period. My 2013 model S had the bubbles a few years ago and they replaced the entire screen for free as it was under warrantee. Hope they can at least lower the price way down as its a known issue with the old part.

    Editorial: Why it is safer to have creep mode ON rather than OFF.

    I have had a Model S since 2013 and hate creep. The first week of ownership I experimented with both settings. I actually hated it when creep was on. Creep to me is an old school thing for gas cars. With a gas car that has creep... "What happens if I pass out at a red light and my car creeps...

    Will the Performance Model 3 w/ 20 inch wheels be able to accept the 18" for winter tires?

    I believe you should move to the west or south west. Then you will not have to deal with winter :). I did it.

    New Exterior Colors?

    New Exterior Colors?

    Whats up with no new colors? I own a 2013 model S They have gotten rid of some colors but now it seems they have not done anything new in a long time. Is it very expensive to add new exterior colors to the painting process? The silver color is a bit bland compared to other luxury auto makers...

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    "Altering the car" is the fatal flaw in thinking.....IF that is what was requested. You alter the child not the car. No more car after a 112 ticket. Get a job and buy your own car... or use UBER. Yes I have a kid.

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    Aunt said after his 112 speeding ticket "he was not reckless behind the wheel and often the designated driver". All I can say is point of view is an interesting study in society" Long ago as a teen...I was in many cars with friends speeding...others driving or myself and we all did stupid...

    Fed up with supercharging, going back to ICE

    The only thing clogging up chargers in California are Tesloop idiots. Cant wait till they go out of business. I always tell folks to not use them. I talked to a driver in detail and he said they are "proud" of the fact that they get their energy for free from Tesla. Meanwhile blocking access to...

    Accident at Oxnard Supercharger Site

    OMG thats odd. I was there last Wed on a road trip from LA to Santa Barbara. I was in the spot on the right where the maintenance crew is working. Last week I thought...."wow this is a dangerous location..too close to the 101 freeway" I guess I was right!

    Refused Deliver 4/26 - should I get repair or new VIN?

    Still quite a shame. Model 3 owners should not have to deal with this type of stuff. Us early model S and X folks have already gone through it. Just crazy that it is still an issue.

    Refused Deliver 4/26 - should I get repair or new VIN?

    I am a Tesla fan boy.. been into the company since day one. Own an early model S 2013 that had tons of fit and finish problems. The company is now older and smarter... no way would I accept that car. No excuse for fit and finish issues any more. I absolutely love Tesla and will never ever...

    Buyer beware. Buying a CPO Tesla feels like a SCAM.

    Sorry to hear about the car. I am a huge Tesla fan and have an early model S before there were even electric folding side mirrors. I wish you talked to me before you got a CPO. As much as I love Tesla.... the 5 years I have been bringing my car in for service...they give me a model S loaner...

    Pictures of production Model 3s

    Unfortunately its probably common, at least up to end of December. My friends had a fixes needed for exterior @ delivery. Interior was perfect. I would have had mine in Dec but delaying for all wheel drive and hopefully better exterior build.

    Am I the only one who couldn't care less if my Model 3 headliner is cloth instead of fake suede?

    I care. I have an early 2013 model S that came with Cloth headliner. The cloth was frayed and damaged @ the windshield on delivery day. They agreed to replace the cloth with Alcantara for free. The job was flawless. I now like Alcantara. The cabin is a little more quiet as it insulates better. I...

    Upset at Major Headliner Issue - Anyone notice this? (resolved)

    How often do Tesla owners run out of charge?

    What he said. I had an ICE car 5 years ago lol. I never ran out of gas. Always thought folks that procrastinate ran out of gas. Never ran out of charge never ran out of gas. If your the type that shaves or puts on your makeup in the car while driving then you are probably the type to not...

    Pictures of production Model 3s

    With minimal configuration options Color, Wheels & AutoPilot options I wonder if they are just making tons of Model 3 in all colors and keeping wheels in stock. Then just throwing on wheels and installing software depending on configuration? Then they can deliver fast as people configure.

    Petition to add tow hitch to Model 3

    I have no need for a tow hitch. Never saw a BMW 3 series with one...possibly an Audi A4? Do people petition BMW, Audi and Mercedes for these sort of things or are they just custom additions. I have not been on the Audi forum in ages, but I remember their posts being more about custom additions...

    "There will be something special", Who does this apply to?

    Simply No. I have been following Tesla since the company started with the roadster. I ordered a model S in 2011..received in 2013. Never expected anything special as an early adopter. Especially now with a zillion people following Tesla. Its not realistic anymore. Maybe in the Roadster days...
