    Safety Score for Insurance

    The more time you drive on Autopilot will raise your score significantly. I use it 99% of the time on freeways and highways. The other 1% is when I take over in construction areas to avoid the unpredictability on lane lines and traffic cones. My score has been consistently 97-100 and Tesla...

    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    I often wonder how many buyers have a good experience with no problems. Obviously a thread like this is to talk about issues one is experiencing and not necessarily "no issue" reports, but it's encouraging to hear that someone got a car with no problems. This X will be my second Tesla and my S...

    S vs X Matrix LED headlights

    Wiki Model X Order/Delivery Tracking - Google Sheet

    I am in the SoCal Area and mine just changed from Sept 26 - November 2 to June 27 - July 16. They also called me and texted me that they really wanted to buy my S 100D FSD so for fun I gave them all the info they wanted and their offer came back 5-8k higher than any of the online offer from the...

    Glue/Solvent smell, usually when coming to a stop?

    Problem is, the mice like to eat the biodegradable stuff. BMW thought it would be a good idea to switch and it cost my insurance company 43 grand in repairs..

    PLAID damaged by TESLA minutes before delivery!

    When I took delivery of my current S, there was a tiny rock chip in the windshield. It had only gone through one lamination and it was a "half moon" only about 1/8th inch wide. I had waited several months for the car and was told it wasn't a big enough problem for them to address, that if it...

    Best SoCal Service Center for MCU 2 Upgrade?

    I have used 3 SCs in SoCal and in order of preference: Baldwin Park Rancho Cucamonga Cathedral City But all of them are very professional.

    Best SoCal Service Center for MCU 2 Upgrade?

    I did MCU 2.5 to FSD at Rancho but they kept it overnight to get "the yellow ring out" of my display, otherwise I am sure it would have been same day. Excellent job, BTW....

    Safelite won't service Tesla?

    I think Safelite stores are franchises... https://brandongaille.com/review-the-safelite-franchise-opp-and-startup-costs/

    Charge port door stuck, service center cancelling appointment

    Why don't you just drive it over and show them? You live in Cali and SCs are about as prolific as 7-11s.

    Can Autopilot be set to adjust following distance based on speed?

    The distance is automatically adjusted with speed.

    Service Alert

    You make some good points however the days are gone where the Execs sit around a board room and decide which will be cheaper: to fix the exploding gas tanks in the Pinto or to pay off the families who lost loved ones who's gas tanks exploded. It is largely due to the internet, immediate...

    I would bet that Elon and his " 'Net Monitors" get a kick out of reading all this crap! They are probably laughing their a$$es off... 😂 Do you think they pull out the popcorn? When this forum was just filled with a bunch of S and then X owners, it was a VERY different vibe. Lots and LOTS of...

    Service Alert

    As long as they fix it, does it really matter? I much prefer it this way and assert that if all cars had a way to communicate with their owners like this, it might do away with yet another blood sucking government entity. Or at least reduce it's budget significantly. I know, too close to...

    I bought a Range Rover. Buh-bye!

    That's a gorgeous Ride! For me there's much more to it. First off out the gate is Daily drive costs. My KWh cost in CA is 7.5 cents (home @ night. I also get free Supercharging but only use it when I am driving to one of my other houses either in the Bay area or St. George, UT) and I...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    If my passenger door automatically opens along with the driver door, I will consider that a defect and a security risk. I don't want some hijacker in an abandoned parking lot having that kind of inviting access to enter my car while I am trying to get in it. It makes no sense. Mash the fob...

    Safety Score

    ME too! Autopilot seems to slam on the brakes. I am much less aggressive on the brakes than my Autopilot.... Also, Bumper to bumper traffic at 10-15MPH on the freeway dinged me for unsafe following distance the other day. Sitting at 97% at the moment.

    Walk me through the design decision for the cybertruck

    It sure isn't for everyone.... I am included in that category. I would be embarrassed to be seen driving around in this. It screams LOOK AT ME!!!!!!! It's like an Electric Hummer. With the pure SEXY Tesla has managed in their heretofore offerings, This one looks like it was designed...

    Supercharger - Menifee, CA (LIVE 30 Sep 2019, 20 V2 stalls)

    This will be helpful for my monthly trips to San Diego. Temecula's is always so crowded and it's up 4 or 5 floors in a parking terrace. I WILL miss P.F. Changs though.... :)

    Old Tesla tires?

    There is a place in San Diego on the corner of Main St. and 32nd St called SA Recycling. They will buy them off you and recycle the metal as well as properly dispose of the tire. It's better to go to a reputable recycler than to a Llantera fro the environment. As Always JMHO.

    OMG TSLA @ $202 :-(

    Love their cars, HATE their stock.... I am too old to handle the whipsaw effect and this stock has been too volatile for me. I am out and no matter how hard it tempts me, I will NOT jump back in. I lost the equivalent of my first year's salary after college graduation this time around. You...

    I use one every day and it works perfectly. They have no qualms with us using 14-50s. they sell them. Apparently they are so popular, they can't keep them in stock :)

    Are the Tesla Service Centers bad enough to cancel my Model 3 order?

    Being a Stanford Man, why yes, I can. It was the nineties. What did I win?
