    Tesla ignoring older cars!

    Seems that Tesla is ignoring those of us with older cars as we are the ones who got Tesla to where they are now. Without us, Tesla wouldn't exist. These new firmware updates are fine and dandy but they do very little to the cars built between 2012 and 2015. Really disappointing!

    Sharing Car Washes in the GTA

    Anyone interested in sharing a $200.00 or whatever the price is, coupon for Car washes? It would mean going weekly on a certain day so everyone can go on that day allocated to him/her. Depends how many people can sign up etc. Just a thought.

    Going to St. John, NB

    Have to go to St. John this weekend. The Tesla NAV screen and the website Tesla.com\trips suggests I can do it all on Superchargers. I would charge in Cornwall, Magog, then Augusta Maine, Bangor and then St. John's (Level 2). Anyone else done this trip? Going though the Excited States is a...

    Model 3 Category in Canada!

    Can we please make a separate category just for the Model 3? I'm not knocking the car, it's great! However, i feel it is becoming more and more difficult when searching for Model S issues due to the excess of Model 3 posts. Thank you!

    Mr. Musk goes to Washington (Well Not really!)

    Time magazine did a nice job of morphing Donald Trump and Vlad Putin into one person. With the antics of late of Mr. Musk on Twitter, I'm sure Time Magazine will probably do the same thing between Musk and Trump! Elon, for the sake of your investors, followers, and customers, please lay off...

    Loaner cars with Summer tires in Winter!

    Picked up a loaner Friday from Mississauga and they gave me a P90D with summer tires. I barely made it home last night in the snow and I'm afraid to drive it today in the snow. I appreciate Tesla giving us loaners but please, INSTALL WINTER TIRES on them! Geez!

    The new charging etiquette!

    Some people just don't get it! I guess some owners are just plain too lazy to park properly while charging. LOL! Spotted at the Pickering charger today!

    Chill Mode is like Range Mode when conserving energy! Or is it?

    So a good feature about Chill mode is that when running low on energy, it will help you to arrive at your destination easier by not allowing you to use extra energy by restricting the energy consumption when pressing the accelerator pedal. Coupled with Range mode, I would imagine it could make a...

    Renting a Tesla in Vancouver over the holidays?

    Any places in Vancouver or Victoria that rents Teslas for a good price during Christmas? Flying in from Toronto. If not, I'll have to rent an ICE car. Ouch! Thanks

    I Wanna be a Truck Driver!

    1000 km range and 0 to 100 km/hr in 5 seconds! Wow! Looks like a lot of fun! I think a lot of people will want to sign on with trucking companies once these semi's hit the road! This marks the end of traditional trucking! It will be safer too, with collision avoidance helping drivers who fall...

    Uncorking in Canada! No bottle of wine needed!

    I was all excited a few minutes ago about getting uncorked on my 75D and the SC made me an appointment for next week only to be called back a few minutes later saying my car didn't qualify. According to the Tesla Uncorking 75D Tracker site, there have been cars uncorked already going back to...

    Gun control

    So the NRA gave the Republicans 54 million dollars worth of advertising while the Democrats received $265.00, that's right, $265.00 for the Dems. Since Elon Musk left Donald Trump's inner circle of advisors recently due to differences of opinion, perhaps it's time for Elon to step up to the...

    New Model 3 orders may have to wait until the end of 2018!

    TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said at the company's annual shareholder conference on Tuesday. "I'm guessing if you put a deposit down now, it's probably end of next year before you get it." Musk's estimate suggests an even greater backlog than expected. On Tesla's website, the delivery estimate for new...

    Confrontation at Woodstock Supercharger!

    Charging yesterday and there was a jeep Wrangler parked in the Chademo station. It was also parked there last week on my way out to the States. As i was charging yesterday , a beat up Volkswagen pulled up to the 2nd of 3 Chademo spots and I politely asked the guy if he could perhaps park...

    Unplug Dashcams before going to Service!

    Make sure you unplug these devices before leaving vehicle for service as the techs will just yank the cables out and damage them, as was the case with me. These cables are very delicate and should be put in carefully and pulled out the same way. I had to purchase a new cable because the...

    Model 3 with AP 1 instead of problematic AP 2.0

    With all the problems with AP 2 and the soon to be release of the Model 3 with no heads up display, could Tesla be rationalizing the costs and headaches of this car by going with a proven Autopilot and screen display? Personally, I don't blame them. AP 2 won't be fully functional anyway by the...

    Beginning to feel that we won't see any new Superchargers in Canada for quite a while!

    Between Rochester and Buffalo, there are two and a third has a permit. This is roughly the same distance as it is from Toronto to the Port of Good Hope (Charge)! I just fail to understand why the Ottawa area doesn't have anything planned and it is a major city. Frustrating to see them in out of...

    Chicago chargers in schools?

    So if your Tesla is charging at a Chicago school, it looks like you won't be bothered by the ICE patrol. Lets hope ICE cars stay away too from the charging spots! LOL! "Chicago public schools say they will keep ICE agents out!"

    The Teddy Waste Management awards are out and guess what?

    The annual Canadian Teddy awards are out and the Ontario government won the prize for electric vehicle tax payer waste with regards to the $14,000 rebate. It is their twisted conviction that anyone who can afford a $140,000 Tesla doesn't need a rebate. Of course they miss the point here that...

    Truck Lust and the myths that accompany it!

    Reading through the comments about truck lust and the "so called" (A Donald Trump vernacular) attraction to big trucks while passing them, makes me think that it is all in one's imagination. I've tried on several occasions to see if this happens and I have to say that the power of suggestion can...

    Hacking the AP Nag warning!

    I wonder if its possible to "hack' the Nag warning as to make it disappear completely? Will Tesla eventually remove it? Could it be gone once AP 2 rolls around completely in 5 years? Could they increase the time to say, 10 minutes? (Most probable outcome I would think)!

    Tesla Model Trump?

    With the close ties Elon Musk seems to have with the Trumper, let's hope the Model 3 is not renamed. The reason why I'm wondering this is that the implications of nicknaming it, "Model T", could have far reaching political advantages for Tesla and it would circumvent the trademark name Ford...

    Abandoned cars on 401 curb and Autopilot

    I was on 401 yesterday in Autopilot at 110 km/hr in left lane passing slower cars when all of a sudden I came across a parked car on shoulder on left and as I passed him, Autopilot slowed rapidly to 80 km/hr and stayed that way for at least about 10 seconds after I passed him before returning to...

    Autopilot unlimited speed on Kingston Road

    I noticed last night unlimited speed on Autopilot while driving on Kingston road in Scarborough. The speed limit is 60 and I was able to go 69 km/h. Could it be geo fencing not set up for the area? I don't know if the AP 1 reads the signs or is it programmed in already via GPS and maps.

    Proposed Toll on Gardner and DVP in Canada's second biggest city!

    Mayor Tory today is about to unveil a proposed toll on Toronto's Gardiner and DVP highways. This would be a good time to exclude all electric vehicles from this proposal and it would be a great way to promote electric car usage on our highways and streets. Of course he could propose a gas tax...

    Will we ever have full autonomy with Autopilot 1?
