    Dumb Winter Range Question

    Just a heads up 'topping off' a Model 3 is going to take much longer than 15 minutes. Our Model X can take almost 50 minutes to go from 80% to 100%. As it gets closer to the 100% mark you're basically going to get a similar charge rate as you would in your house on the 120V plug. My advice...

    Tesla Supercharger - Acworth GA

    UGH!! I was driving through that area coming home last night and probably passed it around 3am. I ended up hitting up Chattanooga before coming to Atlanta area though as I didn't think it would be online yet haha. This is awesome news though! Traveling up again in 2 weeks and am so happy for...

    Tesla Supercharger - Acworth GA

    I'm driving up through there Friday morning and coming back Sunday evening. REALLY would love this turned on tomorrow. Super wishful thinking I know. But at least it seems to be going relatively quickly. I won't be able to stop on Friday unless it's functional. Sunday I should have enough...

    Tesla Supercharger - Acworth GA

    I sure hope more hosts are reaching out requesting it. I've tried speaking with multiple businesses ranging from local reception hall venues to hotels to movie theaters. Installing these chargers, or just a level 2 charger, doesn't seem to require much maintenance. For the Superchargers it even...

    Tesla Supercharger - Acworth GA

    Traffic at that exit is horrendous. That being said it would be awesome to have one somewhere around I-85 South. There's definitely a lot there food wise at Fairburn. Newnan exit has a good amount as well but I feel it's only slightly less crazy traffic wise than the Fairburn exit.

    6 vs 7 seats, 2nd row movement

    A little too tall for that for that to work out for me. I've tried lots of different positions in there. So far the only thing that slightly works is pushing the driver's seat as far back as possible and then laying it down as far as it will go. Even then it's not ideal.

    Tesla Supercharger - Acworth GA

    We have 2 road trips coming up. One in mid-August and another the last week in October. I'd be pleasantly surprised if this was ready to go in August, but I really hope it's good by October.

    Tesla Supercharger - Acworth GA

    Completely agree. As someone who lives 30 miles south of Atlanta with a 75kWh battery, this will allow us to use about 60 miles of range, charge up at Publix and then drive all the way to Manchester, TN. Chattanooga is where we used to have to stop. However it's so far east of the interstate...

    6 vs 7 seats, 2nd row movement

    Just seeing your photos brings back the buyer's remorse of our 6 seater has created. Too many times have I wished we had the ability to fold everything flat. The fact that I would be able to sleep laying down at a Supercharger for a quick 30 minute nap on a 15 hour drive just sounds amazing!

    NEMA 14-50 or Tesla Wall Connector

    Not an electrician someone feel free to me this is dumb. I'm not going to do it, but if you put both plugs on a 50amp breaker, could you just set each car to only pull 20 amps and manually manage the load?

    No WiFi? No problem!

    My guess is the technician probably thought you wouldn't want to use your data as less people seem to have unlimited data with a tethering plan. Although it seems some phone companies are bringing it back around. Whenever someone calls and needs help troubleshooting a problem it can be hard to...

    Charging questions for someone who does not drive everyday

    I'd go with 60% and then as stated above on days you know you'll need more bump it up the night before.

    Would you pick free lifetime supercharging or AP2/3?

    I have an X with Free Supercharging for life and AP2. Purchased at the end of 2016 so it stays with the car when sold. We like it, but given the right price I'd let it go.

    $2000 FSD Poll

    Mine didn't go through, at the top of the browser it gave an error that the purchase was unable to process. I'll try contacting the Service Center to see what they say.

    $2000 FSD Poll

    I don't. I attempted to purchase it and couldn't because their system won't let me update the billing address. Tesla support was supposed to fix it before the cost increase but never did. It still hasn't been fixed, but the updated price is there haha. Oh well, should have stayed in...

    2017 Model X 60D AP2 unlimited supercharging $70,000

    The range on this is interesting. My 80% is 179 miles, but my 100% is 228 miles the last time I checked. My 90% is 201. We have an X75D, I'm guessing this is something to do with how the software locked the battery? I would just think our 80% marks would not be that close, unless you meant 90...

    $2000 FSD Poll

    I attempted to purchase it this weekend. Ran into a problem though. The address they have for billing I was unable to change. It's our old address from 3 years ago when we purchased the car. Since then we've moved to a different state. Because of this my CC gets declined because it's not the...

    referral reward loot box gone in app? How to redeem

    Is this gone for everyone now? I was supposed to be able to upload an image and that never happened. I also scheduled a HPWC to be delivered as our second reward but there's no way to track this now that all the options are removed.

    Does anybody regret buying Model X for your main car?

    I feel similar to this. Our situation changed. The size of the battery was not an issue where we previously lived. Now that we have relocated with work a the 100D would have been better. Probably would have also went with a Model S knowing what I know now. I like the vehicle but for what we...

    MCU reboots while driving

    What was causing our issue was apparently a 'corrupt' contact in my phone list. Ever since disconnecting my phone it hasn't happened since. Support mentioned connecting my phone but not synchronizing the contact list. I haven't done it yet because, well I just haven't yet.

    2018 x75 loses 8 miles over 16 hours parked

    It's not designed to constantly charge. Once charged to the limit it will wait it drops a few percent and then it will charge back up. Unless you have it set to charge at a certain time say 10pm. Then it will start charging again at 10pm the next day.

    MCU reboots while driving

    We had our MCU replaced about a month ago. Starting yesterday the MCU screen reboots about halfway to work and home from work. It's between a 20-25 minute drive depending on traffic. I've submitted the voice bug report each time with the time stamp. I've informed the service center as they...

    Where in Illinois are you? Northern or Southern? I have friends/family in the area if you'd be willing to have someone pick it up.

    Has anyone received the 14-50 wall connector yet?

    Mine just updated this morning that it was picked up and is moving around. It now shows an ETA of end of the day on Valentine's Day. My wife will be very happy haha! Don't worry, I also bought her some books. Trust me, she loves books.

    Has anyone received the 14-50 wall connector yet?

    Received a shipping notification that the label was created, it's supposed to arrive in Georgia by Friday evening, however it hasn't been picked up yet according to FedEx tracking.

    Booting up car takes longer

    Ours was built in 2016 near the end of the year because it has AP2. It was an inventory model though so we didn't design it so I'm not entirely sure when in 2016 it was built outside of after AP2 was brought out. The thing is the issue I'm seeing we've been seeing since we had it. Which is...

    Super charging at -10F

    Yes, the battery needs to heat up and it takes time. We were driving from Wisconsin back south and the car had been sitting outside in 5 degree weather all day. We drove about 35 minutes to a Supercharger that was on the way. For us to get to our desired level to make it to the next charger...

    Booting up car takes longer

    They ended up replacing our MCU. I didn't get a great reason as to what was causing our issue. They did mention that they were unable to see any logs whenever it went down and when it came back up they couldn't see any information regarding what was happening during the time frame in question...

    Battery runs out with 16% indicated range remaining

    I think this all might depend on the people. I was informed earlier this week by a Service Center that if a part if purchased by the owner then there is a 12 month warranty on the part. But if you had something replaced under warranty, it was only covered until the original warranty ran out...

    Booting up car takes longer

    When you say the screen comes on quickly do you mean after you reboot the MCU or you don't have to reboot the MCU? That's my issue is that my MCU doesn't come back on unless it's rebooted. The one time it actually functioned properly in my mind was the evening at the movies whenever it said it...

    MCU Slow Boot and Car Unresponsive via App

    I had something similar happen twice. Once in October, the MCU shut down after charging had started and basically did not stop charging at the set level so instead of 80% I had a 95% battery when I woke up and manually stopped it. Most recently, this morning, the MCU went down before charging...

    Model X Shut Off By Itself

    I realize it's been a while since this thread has had activity but I ran into an issue this morning where the MCU was off. It apparently went off before 11pm last night because that's when it's scheduled to charge and this morning was at 80 miles around 45 or 50% It was plugged in with the blue...

    Booting up car takes longer

    Well this morning was interesting. The car was scheduled to charge at 11pm last night. Opened the door this morning and the MCU was off, car was plugged in but no light was around the plugin location(it was blue last night when I plugged it in waiting for the scheduled charge time). 80 miles...

    Booting up car takes longer

    Long Post, waiting for something to finish while typing haha. We've seen this. I'd say it happens about once every 3 months. A few times 2 years ago in the parking garage at work. I had to reboot it with the scroll wheels to get it to do anything. A couple times at home again needing the...

    Supercharger - Manchester, TN

    Same here. Both of those chargers are too far off the path for my liking. Sadly we still charge at Chattanooga for just enough to get back home south of Atlanta. Once the Supercharging station goes up in northwestern Atlanta we can hit that one for 10 minutes to bypass Chattanooga. I think...

    Seating selection for HUGE dog. What did you do?

    We have a 65lb mix and a Model X 6 seater. She sits nicely right between the 2 middle row seats facing forward. she's a little over half the size of your dog though so I'm not sure how well that will work for you. I will say I dislike not being able to fold down the middle row.

    Supercharger - Manchester, TN

    We were there the same day! Didn't have any issues on the one we parked at though so either someone got a hold of them or we parked lucky. I can't wait for the Supercharger to be installed in Northwest Atlanta so we can bypass Chattanooga. It's just so far off the path going from Atlanta to...

    Would you still buy an X?

    It all comes down to what you'll be doing in my mind. At the time we purchased ours we lived much closer to family and figured we'd be hauling more people more often. We went with the 75D Six Seat option. Now that we're not close to family I dislike the 6 seat option. There is no way to fold...

    Windshield part number

    Dang $800? that's rough but if it helps I'll add it to the list of things to look into. I've had some recent issues with the service centers. Having an issue with the HVAC system and one service center a couple months ago said they couldn't find anything wrong. Took it to another SC a couple...

    How common is ghosting?

    I tried to go back through all the posts here but does anyone have any advice on trying to get the windshield replaced due to this issue? Two separate Service Centers have tested in and have responded that it's in spec. There is definitely ghosting appearing though to the point that all of our...

    Be careful if you decide to cross the road on foot to go to McDonald's or another food establishment. 5 lanes of traffic is a further distance than it appears.

    Windshield part number

    We have the ghosting issue on our AP2 Model X built in 2016. Been having a rough time getting the windshield replaced under warranty. So far 2 service centers tell me that the windshield is in spec but it's getting difficult to drive at night without getting a headache from the double vision...

    screen discoloration

    I'm assuming they still will since it's under warranty, but yes I hope that I don't run into the same issue a year from now and no warranty later haha. Doesn't help putting 25k miles on it a year. You burn through a 50k mile warranty pretty quickly. Happy about having an unlimited mile 8-year...

    screen discoloration

    Been searching this problem again recently. I have this issue show up twice on our Model X Dec'16 delivery. The first time was summer of 2017 in the midwest. Covered parking at home and at work with Overheat Protection on. I would guess 95% of the time when it was parked it was covered and...

    Supercharger - Manchester, TN

    Called up the Mayor's office in Manchester. The nice lady on the phone told me that they were working on the supercharging station this week and she thinks they're close to being finished with it. We'll be traveling that way this Sunday, but it will be my wife, our 3 pets and myself and really...
