    What should I do with my Model 3 reservtion

    I've been invited to order by Model 3 and it says 4 weeks for delivery. But since I placed my deposit I ended up leasing a Model X instead. I could order it and try to sell it? I could find someone and order it for them? I could just wait and use it when my lease expires? What do you guys...

    Insurance in Michigan

    I have a 2015 Model S 85D and I'm paying $995 for 6 months through Geico. I don't have any tickets or anything and neither does my wife. How does this compare with other Insurance carriers you might be using?

    Blasting into the future

    Missed by many is that Tesla will have over 20k cars on the road fleet learning with the fully autonomous hardware by the end of the year. That means around 20 million miles a month and growing every day. In the meantime Google and Uber are running a few dozen cars. These fleet learning...

    Is a Model S refresh a good thing or bad thing for existing owners

    Even though I bought my Model S early last year I knew that I was on the forefront of something big... real big. But I never gave it much though about eventually being a collectible until last year when I was looking for my second one on the CPO web site. I was looking at Tesla Model S with a...

    Model 3 to drive up Model S sales

    I really think with 200k pre orders in already it will be at least 2019-2020 before anyone that hasn't already ordered a model 3 gets their car. That's best case scenario. That being said I think people will move up rather than wait if they can.

    Autopilot in bad weather

    I was driving in fog and the warning comes up that autopilot is not available because of the fog but what I found frustrating is that cruise control was also unavailable because of the fog. I always put cruise control on for local roads so I don't accidentally speed. Also, you would think a...

    Service in Michigan

    Anyone in Michigan have service recently? Reading about the long wait times gives me service anxiety even though I haven't needed any service. Also, When I first got my car they came out to my house to fix a minor issue with the door mirror. Have they done away with service at your location?

    I imagine Musk will want to showcase Model X next week with all the new autopilot features. So will Model X come of the assembly line with 7.0 autopilot features and if so then is Model S 7.0 release coming at the same time. I'm like a little kid before Christmas I just can't wait.

    Luxury car makers are so screwed

    As we've seen in the news the luxury car makers are rolling out their electric cars in the Frankfurt auto show that will compete with the Tesla Model S. Problem is that they are going after the Model S and the Model X and most of these cars are just concept cars. The true killer is not the...

    Thanks for the help

    I was driving back home from Cincinnati this weekend and as we came up I-75 navigation had us stopping at Dayton. The problem is Dayton is 8 miles west of I-75 so that's at least 15 minutes out of our way. But the next super charger would get us there with only 5% battery which is cutting it...

    Badge of Honor

    ​As I was traveling to Cincinnati this weekend we stopped at a couple superchargers we've never visited before. I realized that as silly as it sounds going to a completely new supercharger gives me a feeling of accomplishment and adventure. I listed out the superchargers we've visited in the...

    My road trip experience and why the future of EV's depends on it getting better

    I'm a new Tesla owner and I've had my car for about 1 month and put 1800 miles on it. I took it for a road trip for the fourth of July weekend and prepared my route on EV Trip planner. I coordinated with the hotel to plug in while I was there and also used on board navigation to get me going...

    Road Trip newbie

For example I'm using EV Trip Planner and my first leg is 176 miles 69.4 KWH using a 1.15 speed multiplier and 600 lbs (overestimating 4 people and some stuff). another...

    To chademo or not to chademo

    I'm getting my 85D tomorrow and as the date approaches I'm thinking about what I need to get for it. I've been contemplating getting the chademo adapter but when I look on plugshare it seems where there is a chademo there usually is a super charger nearby. Also, would like to hear real world...

    Would you pay for privately owned superchargers?

    I ordered my 85D for June delivery and I'm totally excited. But the more I think about it and look at the map these superchargers are very limiting. I also read lots of posts about crowded superchargers or having to go out of the way. So my question to all of you is would you pay for a...
