    I have a Tesla and will be getting an additional EV from another OEM. What charger is best ?

    This is what I did, with a Bosch and a Juicebox EVSEs, The adapter for the other way around is too complex.

    MY Delivered with Rock Chip painted with shitty white paint - What should I do???

    Actually quite happy with the solutions provided to you by Tesla, I cannot think of any legacy brand dealer doing this once you leave the lot, of course you could argue they wouldn't have delivered a car with those defects to begin with.

    How to Sell Model S

    2017 75D FSD, Used Car Gurus and found a buyer without too much fuss, was still under warranty so made it a little easier. Serious buyers don't ask a lot of questions, they have researched the car and know what they want and what they will pay, if someone is asking a lot of questions, in my...

    Replacing MS with a... minivan?

    2 Adults and one carseat family here, and take the minivan everytime over the Model S. S is relegated to commute duties only. Frankly prefer the minivan. Drive it at higher sustained speeds than my S and get ignored by everyone on the road. In my S every sporty car, (Honda,hyundai, Kia) on...

    What's the deal with ceramic coating?

    Having done both the PPF and the ceramic coat, here's my 2 cents....... Save the Money and get a wax for $100, twice a year. For the same money your car will look a lot better in 7.5 years.

    Does tinting the roof reduce the heat?

    Roof Shade is better, To put it in a simple way (I am not a thermo nuclear scientist) the Sun is Hot the Earth is Hot, but space between is cold. i.e., Radiant Heat. Hot Glass (including tinted Glass) is the Sun and Balding Head is the earth. Put something in between to absorb some of that...

    Where was Tesla automatic emergency braking in this 60mph crash?

    Oh No no no don't you dare say other brands actually do anything better than a the almighty Tesla. :) Which is why I agree with the philosophy that these Autonomous systems don't need to be perfect, just better than humans.;)

    Tesla S windshield fits in back of Tesla S

    Why did you not have the service center install it? Just wondering. My windshield needs replacing too.

    Here are some missing features that Tesla should have!!

    One scenario could be that, the car stopped several feet behind the car in front, instead of say, using all the available space in front and stopping a mere millimeter behind the car in front.

    2018 Nissan Leaf - $29,990. 40kWh battery

    Having owned three of those, I can tell you that the Leaf is a great car, no qualifiers necessary. If it wasn't for my personal need for luxury and vanity I could just live with the leaf.

    A Little Different Take on Tesla's Future

    A few die hards may believe that to be the case, and few others actually think that Tesla could be the Toyota of EV's, the name it self will sell even if the competition has better products.

    Glass Roof Question

    Subjectively I don't like the sun shining at me through the glass roof. Relatively speaking about heat, the surface gets hot (glass or metal) but the upholstery underneath the metal roof prevents radiant heat, unfortunately the glass becomes it's own source of radiant heat on hot days.

    How long does it take to get your badge upgraded?

    It took an hour and half of waiting. Much longer than I had anticipated. Not at a busy center either. Only one other car was in for service at the time.

    what do you think??

    Not sure about the Title of the article but the sub heading of the article I agree more with. (Tesla)... must learn to nail true luxury interiors before Mercedes, Audi, and the rest learn to make EVs with Tesla-like range.

    Will you buy Tesla vehicle again?

    Glad someone else shares my point of view here. What's wrong with that when your second car serves 90% of your driving. Keeping ye old gasser for your 10% need is greener than buying a new EV. I for one don't see any. Many others will however, disagree and some will even attack with spite...

    Loud "thunk" coming from driver side somewhere?

    I've had similar experiences in Gas cars, it is usually the sound and feel of clunky multi speed automatic transmissions getting foiled by driver inputs. In the Tesla it maybe suspension / control arm issues?

    Will you buy Tesla vehicle again?

    You are right about that. So they should get a free pass if these systems aren't as refined as one would hope. I really wish they would devote more resources to refining the non tech parts of the car, and little less towards Easter eggs, gimmicks and such. Unless of course they figured out that...

    Clarification from Tesla on AEB

    There are IIHS.org and other videos of people who have tested AEB on different cars, so far I think Subaru with their eyesight (mobile eye) beats the competition including all the expensive brands.

    Yes. How about not having the gap to begin with? But I get it, your opinion on Tesla is the only one that matters and everyone else is a useless complaining low life too stupid to understand that Tesla is the greatest and the best.

    Another Easter Egg idea: rev/engine sound modulated by accelerator

    Yes I want this too, Please Tesla. You positioned yourself as the tech leader in the auto industry so you should be doing this. Heck I wouldn't mind an external speaker with the ability to dial in the volume for this sound. All nay sayers, just realize that Infiniti (for many years) and BMW...

    Will you buy Tesla vehicle again?

    Just sharing my opinion here, I,ve been an early adopter had hybrids for over10 years and Electrics for 5, but if BMW or Audi makes a standard sized electric car I would dump Tesla. Had a BMW i3 BEV and not a darn thing was wrong with it ( and I'm not a fan of BMW, only got it cause it was...

    Model X 90D Six Seat Pearl White/Tan Interior For Sale

    $7500 Fed Rebate and $5000 Colorado Rebate amount to $12500, so essentially you are discounting the car by $4500 which I am fairly sure people paying Near $100 K for a Car would not consider to be quite a discount. But, I get your point you are don't need to sell the car you are just seeing if...

    Autopilot 2.0 is dangerous

    All your observations are valid. I would propose a feature that would activate the lane keep assist, while leaving the gas and brake controls to me. Would take a lot of fatigue out of driving and still keep it safe. I speak with experience in my Acura which has a very smooth lane keep assist...

    MS 60 already built, en Route to Europe, now 8k devalued - cancel order?

    Model X hits semi.

    Me too, those are the only situations I use autopilot. As far a safety if there was a front passenger they likely would not have walked away from that crash. I am also in disagreement with claims that Tesla is safer than other cars that have high crash test scores.
