    Suspension + Rough Road Question?

    Like others have suggested, consider the 18" wheel option for slight ride improvement. I have the 19" sport wheels and regret not going with the 18". The 18" wheels also provide a slight increase in range. While these cars may be considered a "luxury" vehicle, not your typical luxury car ride...

    UGH - The smell of it. [AC Smell]

    Installed rain deflector, cleaned the evaporator coil, TWICE consecutively with Kool-It Foam Cleaner, installed new filters, and was minty fresh. Washed the car 1 week later and odor returned...

    Upper Control Arm Creak Options

    He stated that it does not impact the alignment settings, and is replacing a "fixed position direct matching part". The suspension is simply lowered down, pivoting on lower linkage, and then lifted directly back up into position. I took the car to a local alignment shop, and determined it to be...

    Upper Control Arm Creak Options

    Just had both Front Upper Control Arms replaced by mobile service, 45 minute job in total, including my annoying questions... Fantastic technician, really knew what he was doing, and took time to explain the cause, and why the lack of need for an alignment. He did one side at a time, and only...

    Vendor Teslogic — Mobile Instrument Cluster for Tesla Model 3/Y

    Did some testing with placement of my smartphone, several small tablets (7", 10"). It appears that the most practical device to use is a "standard" size smart phone, tablets too large for practical viewing through the steering wheel. The numbers in the demo are good enough for this size screen...

    Tires Designed for EVs

    As these are the only tire that I have ever experienced on my Tesla, I can't really compare. They seem relatively quiet and smooth riding, despite the inherent stiff suspension and 19" wheel size. If I inflate over 42 psi they seem a bit too harsh for my liking. I ran them until 3/32" tread...

    Voice command to make calls not working?

    What a wild coincidence - Just scheduled mobile service for this issue. Seems to have started happening last couple of days. Repaired phone twice, rebooted infotainment twice, reloaded phone app software, nothing helped. Sounds like someone at Tesla is "fidgeting" with something in the background.

    Correct. For some reason, several stations can only be accessed from the news section on the main channel menu.

    I think that the ProContact RX (stock that came on my car) are Continental's top LRR tire, but lower wear (40K miles), whereas the PureContact LS "EcoPlus™" - which represents improved wet grip and wear (70K mile advertised). The ProContact RX has less tread depth 9/32", vs the PureContact LS at...
