    AutoPilot speed restrictions...what do you think

    The last comment/question made me inquisitive... "Wait so it automatically restricts but allows override? That's better than the current 10kph limit with no override."

    AutoPilot speed restrictions...what do you think

    Thanks, Mike. So, there's no overriding the AP setting by pushing up on the stalk? Josh

    I saw this on the TESLA Owners Worldwide group on Facebook. Can anyone with the latest update confirm that this is true?

    Trunk Bike Rack

    Thanks, Audie. The reason I do not want to go with a hitch is because my vehicle is leased.

    I have a leased Model S, and I do not want to install any sort of hitch on my car. Do you think this product will work? 2014 Tesla Model S Trunk Bike Racks - Yakima The retailer's website claims it will fit, but I have not seen anything on the forums regarding it. Also, I have the panoramic...

    Ranger Service Going Away?

    FWIW - My service advisor in Seattle told me about two months ago that I would not have to pay for ranger fees, as there is a service center planned for Anchorage. I am on my second Model S, and so far, I have had excellent service visits here without any fees.

    Should EVs Make Artificial Sounds at Low Speeds?

    Thank you for answering me so quickly. Do you know what the sound might be like? Is there an example clip somewhere to listen to that you're aware of?

    My power consumption went off the chart is morning

    A bit off-topic, but I'm experiencing the same drafty air leaks in my P85D on my head and shoulders. The cold "breeze" is especially noticeable with the HVAC set to recirculate, and I have a ranger visit scheduled later this month to address this and an unrelated issue. In the meantime, I use...

    P85D with Next-Gen Rear Seats and Rear-facing Seats

    Sorry for the delay on the follow-up... Tesla is sending a ranger to cut into the seat where the hooks are hidden behind the middle headrest. They are indeed there, as I could feel them after that fact was brought to my attention. I was offered the opportunity to cut into the seat myself and...

    P85D with Next-Gen Rear Seats and Rear-facing Seats

    Thanks, Fezzik, for the pics. No word yet from the Seattle Service Center... Perhaps they'll send new rear seats my way with a heated steering wheel. ;)

    I am working with the Seattle Service Center on this issue. I will keep you all posted on the outcome.

    P85D with Next-Gen Rear Seats and Rear-facing Seats

    I took delivery of my P85D today in Anchorage, Alaska. I am loving the car, but I cannot figure out how to set up my rear – facing seats. I produced this short video: https://vimeo.com/116628962 I'm open to any suggestions; however, I think there was a blunder during assembly. – Josh

    Tracking P85D Next Generation Seats Delivery Thread

    Would you (or someone else with the taller rear headrests) kindly take a picture from the driver's seat looking into the rearview mirror to show how obstructed the view is? Thanking the amazing TMC forum members in advance!

    Model S Nature Pictures

    Great pics! It's 40°F here in Anchorage today. The snow is melting, and it's raining. I love the plates. My P85D is patiently awaiting its ride north from Seattle for delivery.

    I will just have to get that heated steering wheel on my P1 10D. :)

    Guess I was wrong! My awesome DS in Seattle snapped these for me before my P85D's boat ride north: No heated steering wheel for my Alaskan fingertips, though! :P

    Heated steering wheel. Am I going to get my hands on one?

    I live in Alaska, and I just learned that my P85D does not have the heated steering wheel. My excellent delivery specialist in Seattle was kind enough to double check for me, as the car is there getting finalized. I went into production 12/16 and finished about 10 days later. I'm still a very...

    Tracking P85D Next Generation Seats Delivery Thread

    I'm in Alaska and learned my P85D that finished production yesterday will have front next gen seats and old style rears. What a huge shipping expense (both ways) along with flying a ranger here... I'm not complaining, whatsoever, but just acknowledging the logistics involved.

    Do we have any indication on the ETA of the range increasing update? Has anyone inquired with TM?

    P85D trip SF-Portland: detailed data on range and charging

    Thanks, Marc! Does the usable 75.2 kWh include any hidden miles below zero, or is that still a mystery? I keep going back to this chart/hypothesis: -Josh

    P85D range and highway battery performance

    I thought that some of that "reserve" beyond 0 miles of rated range is anti-bricking protection, and some is for hidden buffer miles. From the graph below, 5.1 kWh is drivable beyond 0 and 3.9 kWh is anti-bricking protection. Am I mistaken?

    Question for people who are far from a service center.

    The only limitation I am aware of is the inability for rangers to perform an alignment. One time, I needed some type of wiring harness replaced, and Tesla arranged for the ranger to use a local Midas shop to get the vehicle off the ground.

    Question for people who are far from a service center.

    In short, yes. There are somewhere between 6–10 Teslas in Alaska, and a ranger comes here several times a year from Seattle to do repairs and annual service visits. Their communication, attitude, and approach have been excellent. -Josh

    Tracking P85D delivery thread

    I checked the delivery spreadsheet yesterday and did not see that anyone had received the next generation seats. Knowing that not everyone is using the spreadsheet, has anyone received confirmation that their P85D has the new seats?

    Tracking P85D delivery thread

    Is there a thread (as of yet) for P85D owners to report their Wh/mi figures and observations around efficiency and energy comsuption? This TM forum comment got me thinking about this as a potential concern... Thanks, Josh

    That will provide 86 miles of range. ;)

    242/265 = 91%, which is pretty close to averaging the 100% and 80% charge states. Just a thought...

    Did Leasing Payments Drop Again?

    My P85D is $132,470. Leasing at 15K miles per year with the $5,000 down payment showed a payment of $1,953/month after Tesla announced improved lease pricing in conjunction with their U.S. Bank relationship. Prior to that announcement, the lease payment was north of $2,000/month for the same...
