    Is there any downside to Air Suspension?

    Yeah feels like you’re driving a lowered civic. Pro tip: Keep rodents away from your air lines. They’re tasty!

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    It's Tesla in name only. Once you file a claim, you're handed off to another company that processes the claim. They have zero insider information or special access to Tesla. Tesla will handle your repair just as they would any other Tesla owner. The only reason to have Telsa insurance is the...

    Tesla X without FWD Poll

    The ultrasonic sensor puck that's beneath the door panel is attached by an adhesive. When it gets hot, the adhesive melts or becomes soft and the sensor starts getting false readings off of the door panel. It thinks there's something blocking the door when in reality there's nothing there. On...

    Tesla X without FWD Poll

    I would drop the FWD in a heartbeat. My 2019 has been into service 3 times for repairs on the sensor and the technician basically keeps saying, “it’s just a thing that happens in the heat. I would do hundreds of these repairs every summer in Phoenix.” Unfortunately I live in the desert so the...

    Supercharger - Firebaugh, CA (I-5 / West Panoche Rd, LIVE 13 Nov 2020, 56 V3 stalls)

    All the stalls currently installed are the reverse-in type. Didn’t see any that would work for larger vehicles or ones towing trailers.

    Supercharger - Firebaugh, CA (I-5 / West Panoche Rd, LIVE 13 Nov 2020, 56 V3 stalls)

    This is going to stay running for good, right? Could it be operational in some kind of trial mode that may get turned off at any point? I’m going to be driving down the 5 tonight and this is the perfect stopping point. Don’t want to get there only to find it not working.

    P100D X 12V battery dying in a car without any warning?

    I’ve got a mobile service appointment for Sept 8. Going to try and get it into my driveway from work and then just leave it there until the service appointment. For my last service they told me they don’t have loaners at Bakersfield. Which was a lie because when I got there a guy was dropping...

    P100D X 12V battery dying in a car without any warning?

    Same issue here. 11month old MX died without warning twice in 3 days. Seems to randomly reboot itself and come back to life. I left mine at work last night after trying to jumpstart it, just saw the notification on my phone that it came back to life at 3am. Gonna drive it home today and park it...

    Is the insane lack of email responses/customer service I am experiencing common?

    Pretty much the same here. It’s to the point that I can’t even muster up enough fanboyishness to justify a cybertruck let alone convincing my wife to go through the ordering/delivery experience with Tesla again. Only thing going for Tesla right now is the charging network which is a must for us.

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    It’s the main painted part and the black plastic lower one where the air intake is. Luckily the PPF protected the hood.

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    $2531.06 parts and labor for replacing the upper and lower bumper. Haven’t gotten it fixed yet. Need to find a detailer who can do PPF relatively near by the service center.

    After FSD 3.0, Summon accident!!! Crashed my bumper and hood

    I had a nearly identical incident with my MX. hit the only obstacle in the entire parking lot, a stop sign. From where I was I though it was going to drive around it. Nope, aimed straight for it. Tesla said they would do an investigation and the SC manager would call me back in 8 weeks. Then...

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    Ordering/delivery process for a 2019 MX was very stressful mostly due to poor communication from Tesla. Resolving a smart summon related accident during transition from telephone customer service to app only service became impossible and still hasn’t been resolved. Recent service visit at...

    Model Y vs X

    If you don’t need a 3rd row, the Y has a huge advantage in not having the falcon wing doors. Just drove 2 hours to the nearest service center to get the ultrasonic FWD sensor fixed only to have the new one start acting up on the drive home. Mechanic was just like “they’ve been like that since...

    2020.24.6.1

    Just took my first drive with this software update and the UI crashed while i was driving. Both screens went black for about 2 minutes before it rebooted. First time that ever happened to me.

    Have Tesla insurance, just got DMV letter "Intent to Suspend" for lack of insurance

    It’s not Tesla holding it up. It’s mostly my personal circumstances. Tesla was supposed to be “investigating” the incident and would call me back within 8 weeks. That was something like 20 weeks ago. Now you can’t call them at all and I haven’t tried going through the app yet to schedule the...

    Have Tesla insurance, just got DMV letter "Intent to Suspend" for lack of insurance

    I have one that’s sort of on hold due to COVID-19 complications. Tesla actually subcontracts out the actual claims stuff to another company, and that’s who you deal with. They’re professional and helpful but have no connection or insider knowledge with Tesla the car company. Especially if you...

    Model X Charges past set point

    It’s been fluctuating between 58 and 59% all day today. “Charging complete”

    Model X Charges past set point

    I’ve had scheduled departure on and the last charging session I had it set to 80%. I left it plugged in for maybe an additional 12 hours and it trickled up to 83%. I’ve got it plugged in again now, scheduled departure off, and limit set to 60%. Should be done charging in about an hour but I’ll...

    2020.8.1 Another useless update for most of us

    I believe it allows you to format the Sentry Mode USB drive from Windows without having to get some additional third party drive management software. Huge usability improvement.

    Supercharger - Inyokern, CA (4 V2 stalls)

    New EV charging system going in at the Inyokern airport. Anybody know what type it is? I don’t see it on supercharge.info or the electrify america site.

    The Y rear is ugly

    I saw that model Y at the Fairfield Supercharger a few hours ago. Didn’t notice the hitch. Was just too amazed at actually seeing one in the wild in person to focus on the details. 95FB7D16-96A9-4609-9274-0BEE1F5685E3 by Waverider posted Dec 27, 2019 at 10:31 PM

    Glass Breaking Fail

    You’d think they would have tested that before hand. I’m betting Franz was supposed to throw the first smaller ball.

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    I see this pulling in the Hummer/ H2 crowd. The looks are actually sort of growing on me. Got that military transport vibe from the front and rear, side profile is terrible. It’s equally ugly as the Rivian just in a completely different way.

    Seatbelt nag chime longer

    Pressing Park again didn't stop the dinging for me :-( I've started closing the door manually like a neanderthal, putting on my seatbelt, and then pressing the brake to turn it on. Lame

    Have Tesla insurance, just got DMV letter "Intent to Suspend" for lack of insurance

    Just tried it with and without dashes, didn't work for me. Sent a pdf of the verification letter I had to send the credit union to that [email protected] email address. Fingers crossed that works. I'll probably mail a copy of the verification letter to the DMV as well. Definitely regretting...

    Seatbelt nag chime longer

    That’s the thing though, it dings before you even put the car in drive. As soon as somebody sits down. They haven’t even had the chance to put their seatbelts on.

    Seatbelt nag chime longer

    Got 2019.36.21 a few days ago and I might be going crazy but the seatbelt nag chime seems to ding much longer now. If I remember correctly, it would previously only sound if a passenger didn’t have a seatbelt on when you put the car into gear. Even then it would ding only three times. After this...

    Driver seat crushes my wife against the steering wheel on easy entry

    This has happened to me twice upon entering my 09/2019 MX. I have my profile and easy entry profile. When the crush driver bug happens it moves the seat back forward in both profiles and saves them. Thankfully it has only happened when I first get in the car and hit the brake pedal, not while...

    Tesla Insurance Launched

    On top of the frustrating buying experience, Tesla insurance has been less than ideal. Had to call to add a driver, call again to get the name spelled correctly, and call a third time to add the credit union as the loss payee. Then the insurance card can only show the primary driver for some...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    I had a similar experience prior to delivery. The insurance information popped back up on the account page about 1-1.5weeks prior to delivery. I was able to resubmit the info but the image showing my uploaded insurance pdf was always corrupted. When delivery (unexpectedly) came everything must...

    Model X 90kWh battery pack degradation

    So the delivery specialist told me something interesting today as I was signing paperwork for my new Model X. He said that they could change individual cells if their diagnosis noticed something wrong during a regular service. So “unlike a leaf where they have to replace the entire battery pack...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    Car was delivered today after a 5 week wait. Delivery was sort of a continuation of mediocre customer service from Tesla. We had the 4-6pm appointment for home delivery. At 5:45 I sent a text to the delivery specialist asking if this was going to happen. About 5:50 he called saying the delivery...

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    How quickly does the Tesla insurance go into effect? So once you get your quote and click on the submit payment button, are there other approval steps, or are you covered at that point? Taking delivery tomorrow so I can either add the car to my GEICO coverage through the app instantly after...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    My growing fear now is that they're going to cut corners to fulfill all these orders and I'm going to be stuck dealing with an unfinished car that needs to be taken back to a service center to correct all the production flaws.

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    I’ll be picking up from the Fremont delivery center right by the factory most likely. My advisor hasn’t really given me anything informative about why it’s taking so long. At best she seems as clueless as I am. There may be a huge order surge of white paint cars taking advantage of free...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    Where are they delivering it to? Seems like they’re fulfilling all the cross country orders right now and not doing California/Bay Area? At least not until the end of September. Or is it completely up to how proactive your Tesla customer service is to reserve one off the production line?? My...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    Yeah the website definitely said “2 weeks” when we ordered mid August, and we planned financing and PPF wrap appointment accordingly. September actually got really busy for us so a delivery in October is actually better. I would have preferred to know up front that my wait was 7 weeks so I could...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    Between the electrician being a jerk about installing the 14-50 outlet in the garage and little to no communication from Tesla, my wife is rapidly losing what little motivation she had to go along with this purchase. :(
