    East Pierce/South King County Nav Issues

    We have an 2015 S85D. A little while ago the Nav started to wander significantly, causing problems with the TACC. My wife would find herself during her commute on 167 and 18 suddenly having the car think she was on a side street, quickly slowing the car from highway speeds to city speeds. We...

    Tesla App 3.10.3 Closing on its own

    We've had our Model 3 for nearly 18 months, and our S for about 4.5 years. I've used the app at least daily ever since we got our 3 and hundreds of times before that for the S. I say that to point out this isn't user error. I know what's supposed to happen and it's stopped and I don't know why...

    Model 3 Trunk Lights Don't Always Turn On

    I've searched through a few threads, but one was linked to a bad trunk latch and one was linked to lights not being connected. That's not my issue. It's also not a case of the lights being dim. If I approach the car from the rear and open the trunk during a time when the car has been sleeping...

    Tesla Body Repair Center - Bellevue

    I was hopeful that I might be able to use this after my car was hit in a parking garage yesterday, but after calling and talking to Tesla, it sounds like they do only the most minor repairs. "Scratches, no panel replacement, dents smaller than a dollar bill," etc. Not sure if anyone else has...

    Suggestions Please - Seattle to SLO, I-5 or 101?

    Traveling to SLO from the Seattle area to pick up my son from college and I'm trying to decide which route I'd rather take. I'll be driving south on Wednesday and Thursday, so could potentially hit traffic depending on the time of day. Route planners suggest taking I-5 most of the way...

    Ellensburg Supercharger - Reduced Service?

    The Ellensburg Supercharger is showing reduced service/closed right now. Has anyone been through there lately? I have several trips through the area coming up in the immediate future, and not having access to Supercharge there will be a big issue. If it's slow that's obviously not a good...

    Traveling in a wind storm

    My family and I are on a road trip that has taken us about 1,000 miles south of our home in Washington. The trip down was great. I am starting to get a little concerned about the trip back north this weekend. We'll likely be leaving Saturday morning, and while having a strong tailwind all the...

    Using the Nav to get to the SoDo Service Center - Not a good idea?

    Had our 1 year service appointment today. Plugged the Seattle Service Center into the Nav (it did pull up the correct address) and began our trek northward. The route was bizarre from the very start, but only got more and more nonsensical as we got closer to our destination. The Nav kept...

    How does the navigation system choose a route?

    This seems like it should be pretty straightforward, but I can't decide how the navigation system choose which route to display. In my old Honda, the nav could route by a direct route, easy route, or fastest route. It didn't consider traffic. The Tesla nav has the option to consider traffic...

    Considering a Seattle/LA/Seattle Drive

    I was picked for a golden ticket for the Model ≡ reveal. I'm trying to figure out the logistics of making the trip now. I know that I'd have 100% supercharger coverage for the trip if I chose to drive it and am wondering if any one here has had any recent experiences with the route. As much as...

    Silent Thunder at Pacific Raceways

    Anyone going to the Silent Thunder event at Pacific Raceways on Sunday? National Electric Drag Racing Association - Upcoming Events I just heard about it today, but don't think I'm going to be able to make it. It sounds like a great time.

    Uneven Brake Dust Accumulation

    And it's not front to back. We've had our car since the beginning of June and have about 2,000 miles on it. Since delivery I've noticed that the wheels on the driver's side of the car accumulate brake dust much more quickly than the wheels on the passenger side. I would expect there to be some...

    Washington Owners - How long did it take you to get your license plates?

    Through several car purchases in several states over the years, it's taken a wide range of time to get license plates. Our Model S was delivered in Seattle on 6/3, and we're still waiting. We're quickly running up against the date on our temporary and wanted to know what other Washingtonians...

    Garage Door Disaster Narrowly Averted

    When was the last time you inspected your garage door? When was the last time you examined the track that your garage door open used to open the door? Yesterday, my wife pressed the door opener button on our garage wall to open the door. She said the door briefly started to move, then...

    BMW Streetlight Charging

    Interesting concept, and one I've heard discussed before, being tested by BMW using streetlights as charging stations. BMW Wants to Put a Vehicle Charging Station In Every Street Light

    Shhhhhh. . . It's a secret

    My wife and I have been in the market for a new car for a little while. We casually looked at a Model S with our kids, but laughed it off when they told us we should buy one. They don't know that we went back this week for a test drive, and that our order for and 85D was confirmed yesterday. A...
