    iPhone Maps Address Share Not Working [rebooting phone fixed issue]

    Hey there, I've been having this issue as well, on my iPhone 8+. I thought it was possibly an issue with having an older phone, but it sounds like not. The only thing I've figured out that works to solve this is to reboot my phone, and POOF, the Tesla app shows up as an option again.

    Tesla app disappearing as Apple maps sharing option - found a solution

    Interesting! I also have an iPhone 8+. Maybe this is Apple's new sneaky strategy for planned obsolescence, now that the battery thing got found out.... 😝

    Tesla app disappearing as Apple maps sharing option - found a solution

    Hey there, I keep having an issue and I figured I'd share my best solve for it, and see if anyone else has a better answer. So, you know how you can pull up a destination or a contact in your iPhone and hit the "share" button, and share it to your Tesla? Well, I've been having an issue that...

    Blog Musk Says Tesla is Working on ‘Grief’ from Collision Repair

    This is 100% true from everything I've found. Best option is to go to your local Tesla owners' club (I found a good one on Facebook) and ask who the Tesla authorized body shops are, rather than messing around with anyone else who will have to get authorized before they can even order parts...

    Blog Musk Says Tesla is Working on ‘Grief’ from Collision Repair

    I was VERY surprised to hear that Tesla Insurance was available in Texas in this article. Because it is not. Not on the website, not anywhere. It may be in the works, what with the Gigafactory and all, but it's not there yet. And, getting service through the Tesla Austin service center is a...

    Thule Roof Cargo Box Size?

    Does anyone know if the Thule Pulse will fit on MY? It is $2-300 less expensive than these models on Amazon right now and I'd rather save the money. It says it's a no-go with M3.

    Dear Elon: just remove navigation from your cars

    I had no idea you could do that!! So cool.

    Tesla made a *HOUSE CALL*

    True. It was the 12v, so not quite as major, but still cool/odd to have a service appointment complete in my driveway in 10 min, without me having to be there. Anyone else experience "mobile service" on their Teslas yet?

    Tesla made a *HOUSE CALL*

    Actually, I just checked the service invoice, and you're right, it was the 12v battery. Now, I'm a little disappointed.

    Tesla made a *HOUSE CALL*

    Nope. As I say, I wasn't there to see what they were doing.

    Tesla made a *HOUSE CALL*

    I recently had the WEIRDEST and probably coolest auto maintenance experience ever with my Model Y, and thought I'd share it here. I got my MY in September, and from the beginning, I was noticing a weird, chemically, hot-battery smell outside the car when I would drive with the windows open...

    Weird burnt smell? Anyone else?

    OK, good to know that this is not normal!

    Weird burnt smell? Anyone else?

    No, it's coming from outside the car.

    Weird burnt smell? Anyone else?

    Hey there, I have had my MY for just about a month now and LOVE it. Lots of fun to drive, etc. But, when I open the windows while driving (weather has been lovely in TX the last couple of weeks), I get this really funky burnt smell from the car. The smell is definitely battery-esque, though...

    Electric Lawnmowers

    I bought the EGO mower, blower and weedeater about 4 years ago, and I love the fact that a) there is no gas/oil mixture to deal with, b) I don't have to pull that stupid cord (I have t-rex arms), c) I'm not polluting the environment to have a nice yard, d) they are sooo quiet, and e) there is no...

    18' Wall Connector...ALLLMMMMOOOSSST Long Enough

    Hey, so I was looking at this Clipper Creek model you linked to, and it says it's only good up to 40 amps. There's a 50 amp model that's $899. Any idea why so expensive?? I'm looking at that vs. the ChargePoint, which goes up to 50 amps, and has an app to schedule charging for cheaper times...

    18' Wall Connector...ALLLMMMMOOOSSST Long Enough

    So, with those alternate brands, do you have to buy some kind of adapter to get it to fit your Tesla, or should it fit properly? I figure, with Tesla always out of stock on the chargers, maybe I can sell this one on Ebay and buy a different brand.

    18' Wall Connector...ALLLMMMMOOOSSST Long Enough

    Are the 24' version 2 connectors a lot slower than the version 3 one that I bought?

    18' Wall Connector...ALLLMMMMOOOSSST Long Enough

    So, I just bought my first Tesla and knew I needed a wall connector. Here's the issue - I don't have a garage. So, I had an electrician install it just on the corner of my house, and this process was not cheap. Unfortunately, before he installed it, we forgot to check whether the cable was...

    Camping in a Model Y

    Sweet, that's really not too bad. And, a good rule of thumb for those of us that don't like complex math, lol.

    August/September VIN Notifications and Deliveries

    No, I don't think it comes with a tow bar, just a receiver - you have to buy your own. Weird that you ordered your MY a few weeks after mine and got a 4k earlier VIN number.

    Nema Gen 2 Adapters vs. What Came with my MY?

    Camping in a Model Y

    So, for those of you who have camped in your Tesla with camp mode on, how much battery does it use?

    August/September VIN Notifications and Deliveries

    So, my car actually came in TWO DAYS EARLY, on 9/4. Crazy. And, I've found a couple of minor defects (Rear Tesla logo is half missing, center console lid doesn't close properly, tow hitch is missing), but the major paint issues and panel gaps appear to be non-existent on my car. And, I...

    Nema Gen 2 Adapters vs. What Came with my MY?

    Hi there, I'm a newbie Tesla owner and SO excited! I'm looking at all the accessories online, and the Nema Gen 2 adapters seem to make sense (charge your car really quickly with the mobile charger that comes with the car when you are on the road and don't have access to a supercharger or your...

    Tesla Model Y: INTERIOR color choice?

    This was also what swayed me to the black interior. I'm in TX, so black seats are a little dodgy during the dog days of Summer. But, that white dash just looked too...... Italian.

    Dollar Amounts "off" on my account?

    OK, i finally talked to someone from Tesla and figured this out. It WAS a big mistake on their part - they had mixed up my financial information with someone else's, and it's a good thing I caught it, because all kinds of bad things were about to happen - a) the other person was about to get...

    Dollar Amounts "off" on my account?

    Actually, because I'm in Texas, none of my loan is being done through Tesla. And, actually, it's the cash dollar amount that I paid that's being reflected incorrectly online, so....any advice?

    Dollar Amounts "off" on my account?

    So, I'm paying for most of my Tesla in cash, with a small loan to supplement. I put in my bank account for the cash piece of things, and Tesla debited the full amount that I planned to pay in cash. The money is definitely no longer in my account. However, the website still says I owe a...
