    Tesla just lost one customer, i know they dont care but i do !

    Tesla also gives a 4 year warranty which so far I've never had to use. The one time it was in SC for free FSD computer upgrade I was given a loaner without asking. My brother-in-law has gotten lots of use from his warranty. Your milage may very. I agree it's a nice looking ride just a bit slow...

    MCU1 with HW3 dashcam video. Very bad

    I did with no issue. Not planning on MCU2 upgrade unless my MCU1 fails. The only thing I use MCU for is Navigation, Spotify and Tune in. Performance is perfectly fine. I plan on trying dashcam I'll see how that goes. Can't imagine using MCU for internet or Netflix or games.

    A6 really? Might want to rethink that. My brother-in-law has an A6 that has been nothing but a nightmare. Surely there is an A6 forum. If I were interested in an A6 I check that out. His experience could be isolated case. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Selling Tesla Model Y

    Very true. However the post I quoted made a general statement saying one of the reasons to purchase new over pre-owned was rebates. There are more states that don't then do. I'm not sure about the rest of the world. It could be that more countries over rebates then don't but probably not.

    Ok so you found one that doesn't and I found one that does. That's a draw. In regards to finding you motels I'm not your travel agent. Most of us aren't traveling to remote parks in Texas.

    Choosing NEW vs. CPO HELP!

    Well actually the topic was about new vs used when you made a statement in post 39 and introduced state parks. I replied referencing a motel within 30 minutes that provided destination charging. You exspanded it from there.

    Choosing NEW vs. CPO HELP!

    Ok you busted me sorta. Back in the day I stayed in what would be the equivalent of $60.00 a night. Motel 6 was $6. And I'm not as picky while traveling alone but seldom travel solo and at 70 not as adventurous as I was once.

    Choosing NEW vs. CPO HELP!

    I've never paid $200 a night but also have never seen $60 room I wanted to stay in. A Google search for Holiday inn budget returns results for Holiday inn Express perhaps that's what you mean. Not all HIE motels are $100. However I did stay in one last April in Atlanta for $110. Oh by the way it...

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    The next car I buy will be an EV. Which one? Don't know. But I do know it will have to provide 275-300 miles of real miles and be recharged in 30 minutes or less using a pretty much a coast to coast network.
  15. Alset4S

    Choosing NEW vs. CPO HELP!

    Ok you could have a point if you generally stay in budget motels. I don't. I've never paid more to stay at a property with a destination charger. Actually last trip I took in an ICE car the motel we stayed at had Tesla destination charger in the parking lot. Oh another option might be camping...

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    I'll agree on acceleration. I have a relatively slow Tesla. 0-60 4.2 secs. Way faster and quicker than I have any need for. I'll disagree on range. At least for those who road trip or travel frequently. My 75D when new was rated at 259 miles of range. That equates to about 175-200 miles of...

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    Do I love my Tesla? Yes I do. Am I a Tesla Fanboy? Nope. Will I replace my S with another Tesla? Probably not. Unless no other manufacturer steps up to the plate with an EV that offers a car reasonably close to what Tesla does. Hmm maybe the next one will be a Tesla.

    Oh I didn't realize you were going to be at all the state parks. So, exactly which ones don't have destination chargers within oh say 30 miles or so?

    That's a pretty blanket statement that tells nothing of where you were or any other circumstances.

    Looks more like a downgrade to both my bank balance and function. At least the functions I care about.

    True but then there's not much of anything in Cocran. However 31 minutes away the Holiday inn express In Brenham has destination chargers.

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    I agree in regards to music, streaming or USB stick is fine. But when not streaming music, which is often, I listen to non music XM stations. I've find no alternative for listening to PGA radio other than XM.

    X-Care Experiences

    Thanks for your reply. I do however take issue with your implication I'm arguing semantics. The word may by definition does not imply will. Here's the dictionary definition of may. "language note: May is a modal verb. It is used with the base form of a verb. ... You use may to indicate that...

  31. Alset4S

    Choosing NEW vs. CPO HELP!

    The difference between your choice and the choice OP asked about is 2016 20K less than new and 2018 20K less than new. That IMHO is a significant difference. Two years newer for essentially the same cost differential and addional battery, drive motor warranty.
  32. Alset4S

    Choosing NEW vs. CPO HELP!

    Unless the extra cost is a real problem I'd take new hands down. There are signicant difference between 2016 and 2020. That's just my opinion and worth no more than you paid for it. Good luck.

    Tesla YANKED FSD option without notice - Class Action lawsuit? Any Lawyers here? [Resolved]

    The original owner of my model S, 2016 75D with UFSC and FSD, traded it for a new Mercedes (to each his own). I purchased car from dealer. Purchased car in November 2018. When I had Tesla add it to my account they asked the question if it was purchased from individual or dealer. I answered...

    Model S HW 2.0 to HW 3.0 Upgrades? (Not HW2.5 or Model 3 upgrades to HW3)

    Oh really? I have Sirius on my 2016 AP2 MCU1 MS. But only on cars with Ultra High Fidelity Sound Package.
  41. Alset4S

    Out of curiosity, what do you hate about your Tesla?

    What car maintains full performance? My 4 year old ICE doesn't have the performance it did 5 years ago. Kinda sounds like you want to have your cake and eat it too.

    AP2 cars with MCU1, AP2.5 cars with MUC1 AP2.5 cars with MCU2, all need to be updated to the FSD computer and MCU1 cars may or may not need MCU upgrade. All of the above is required to take advantage of a feature complete FSD software which at this point in time doesn't exist. Hopefully it will...

    No more free unlimited supercharging for some used Tesla vehicles

    I'd like to think he thinks it's true when he says it and not intentionally lying. But that's just my opinion and worth about what you paid for it.
