    Moto Voice and Model S

    I upgraded my cell from Galaxy S7 active to Moto z3 this weekend. One of the Moto apps is "Moto Voice" which will read text to you while driving. I figured I would give it a try and I was stunned with how well it works when bluetoothed into my Model S. When I receive a text it basically starts...

    High mileage issues (long and frustrating)

    So I have a 2014 Model S85 since March 2014 now at 70,000 miles. I love the car and plan to buy Tesla again but I have had a very frustrating day/week with Tesla and wanted to complain and get random internet feedback. I had plenty of early build issues early in the car lifespan from broken...

    Huntsville TX Supercharger update

    I took another road trip from Aggieland to Marksville, Louisiana last weekend and have a few notes about Huntsville that are new to me. 1) Whataburger is closed- it looks like they moved across the highway and the location near the SC is boarded up. That means the only food/drink source nearby...

    Columbus SC- Limited service?

    I am driving down to Rock Port to fish with some high school buddies this weekend and I was looking at the route on my Tesla Nav and it noted that Columbus has limited service. Anyone have details? I can likely make it all the way to Victoria from Aggieland and just SC there and finish the...

    Car Shield Extended Warranty experiment

    My 2014 S85 rolled out of warranty after a quick 3 years and I took the gamble of NOT buying the extended warranty in the hopes that it would need fewer repairs relative to ICE vehicles. Over the last 12 months I've had a few repairs (leaking headliner $1000, bugs in tail lights $1000 which I...

    Tesla "Cool Zone" for tailgating

    So I joined a new tailgate group for Texas A&M home games and in this particular location I can park my car immediately near the tailgate. This got me to thinking about a way to engineer a system of fans & tarps to blow the AC from the Tesla across the tailgate. My rough idea is to have two or...

    Solar installations in Texas

    Has anyone had personal experience with Solar installation in Texas? I'm getting quotes primarily because the City of College Station is the only electric provider I can use and they charge a pretty high 0.12 per kwh. With the Tesla & a pool our bills are pretty dang high. I met with...

    Austin airport parking with charging

    Has anyone had personal experience with a reliable slow charge near the Austin airport? We are flying to LA over labor day weekend to watch the Aggies vs UCLA and I would like to take my Model S from College Station but only if there is reliable charging even with just a normal 3 mph plug. The...

    Will Model 3 owners tolerate the $175/hr shop rate?

    I've been shocked to note the hourly rate for my Model S repairs is $175/hr here in Texas. I knew repairs would be expensive on a premium level vehicle and I recognize it is a specialized vehicle that the corner shop mechanic cannot repair but this is 2x the rate of the average mechanic...

    Water Stain on Headliner

    After some heavy rains last week my 2014 Model S with solid roof developed a nasty large stain on the headliner. I contacted North Houston service and they reviewed the photos and are going to replace the seals and try to clean the stain as best they can for the bargain basement price of $1100...
