    Air suspension recalibration

    you can check the air shocks with a bit of soapy water. They are fairly easy to rebuild with new O-Rings. Several threads on it.

    Reliability of older Model S?

    I am sure they have a ton of data to work out their product pricing. It was a bit of a let down to read the exclusion list.

    Reliability of older Model S?

    from their contract: (I attached the full text). Brent says they cover up to 27k in repairs but not the important mechanical bits.

    Real life experience with Xcelerate warranty?

    I have been out of warranty for a while. I just rebuilt the rear air shocks due to corrosion around the bottom O Ring. No other issues with the car. I was lucky to have the door handles updated and the MCU replaced before the factory warranty was up. In my case, I have to consider what is left...

    Real life experience with Xcelerate warranty?

    I have been reviewing the items that are not covered by X-care (section 4 of the contract). The list is quite extensive and should be reviewed carefully. I am having trouble finding the value in their coverage after reading so it is likely not a good deal for me. Brent has been great in...

    Reliability of older Model S?

    I don't know if Tesla still leases the Model S but if you want to drive a Tesla long term I am beginning to think that leasing works out to be less expensive. I'm on my 3rd Model S now. I've been out of warranty for some time now. I just rebuilt the rear air struts which had leaky bottom gaskets...

    Air suspension strut leak

    I ordered 49x5 O-rings from McMaster and they fit perfectly on the stock strucks.

    Smart Air Suspension Problem

    check for corrosion at the bottom of the air strut lip. spray a little soapy water up there and if it bubbles then you have found your leak. It is possible to repair. I expect that most of the cars that live up north are going to have this problem eventually.

    Air suspension strut leak

    It is fairly easy to rebuild the air shocks. They start leaking when the corrosion builds up and the O rings can not seat properly. Cleaned it up and reassembled. Problem solved.

    Is this MCU or eMMC failure?

    The Dania Beach (FL) SC replaced my MCU right before the warranty expired when I was having intermittent LTE issues. They have always been great. Seems every SC is different.

    Trying to make sense over PPF and Ceramic Coat ...

    Mine had a full PPF when I bought it. It does make washing the car much easier as any scratches disappear after the car sits in the sun a bit. That said, I would not pay to have it done to the entire car if it was new. The front bumper and hood I would do but not the rest. I would also add that...

    Can I set the cruise control speed limit more than 5mph over the speed limit. (AP, no FSD)?

    I don't believe so. The AP still reads the road signs and has a GPS dataset for the speed limits.

    TESLA does not respect its customers.

    Tesla has not cared about customers after the sale for many years now. If you are lucky, your service center will be full of friendly, helpful people, just don't expect anything at all from Tesla Corporate.
