    Tesla service late 2020

    I know it's fashionable on the boards to bash Tesla service, but i wanted to share my experience with the latest episode. I had a minor issue with my MCU1 (replaced in April or May of this year under warranty). I set up an appointment on the app, and was given a time to drop the car off at the...

    Service during COVID19

    There is always a lot of grousing on the forums about service experiences, but in five years of ownership I really don't have much to complain about. My 2015 S85D had the MCU die a little over a week ago. The car was drivable, but without any of the MCU functions, such as HVAC. I scheduled...

    Slacker no longer works

    2015 Model S (still under 4 years time in service). Original 3G chip Slacker asks for credentials, pushing the "Use Tesla Login" results in and "unable to log in, try again later" message. Connectivity is good (for a 3G chip), Tunein still works. USB works. Streaming over Bluetooth works...

    First service experience

    I’ve had my model S for over three years now, and apart from a few minor issues at delivery that a ranger came and fixed, nothing has ever not worked on the car until yesterday. I live more than 200 miles from the nearest service center, so this is potentially a problem. At my first stop on a...

    Where is the connector for rear footwell lights?

    Title is self explanatory. I have a 2015 S85D that came without the premium lighting package. I ordered a set of new LEDs from Abtract Ocean, and have installed them all except the rear footwell lights. Does anyone have a good photo showing the location of the wiring/connector? I was able to...

    Only 1.3 million miles on autopilot in summer 2016?

    This might have been discussed in the autopilot accident thread, but I kinda stopped reading after the signal:noise ratio dropped off after a few pages. I was struck by the 1.3 million miles reported on autopilot. That seems an astonishingly low number to me. All of the 50,000 or so cars...

    The Missing Link!

    On supercharge.info Miner, MO is now permitted. This appears to be the north side of Sikeston, and will free those of us in the center of the Supercharger Desert to travel north. This is huge. It still doesn't help those who live in St Louis or Chicago to cross the desert to the south...

    1000 mile weekend, random thoughts (long)

    After the Pearl, MS supercharger opened last week, I decided to take a real road trip. Memphis has been isolated, with only the Nashville supercharger within the car's range, so I have done very little highway travel to date. Weather conditions were probably close to ideal, with temps in the...

    The Great Supercharger Desert starts to shrink...

    I see hopeful signs looking at the map on supercharge.info. There are a total of five supercharges permitted, under construction, or newly opened around the edges of the desert. It's been a long time coming, but soon we may be able to break out. Today, we can get out of memphis in -two-...

    Sikeston off list for 2016?

    Well this is disappointing. The newest iteration of the 2016 SC map looks like it has Cape Girardeau rather than Sikeston. That would mean no way to dive directly from Memphis to Effingham Illinois. That means a significant detour (or charging at an RV park) to get to Chicago without going up...

    Climate control algorithm V7.0

    Something that seems to be missing in the dozens of autopilot threads that are metastasizing all over the forum is feedback on the climate control system updates. Like others, I had been disappointed in the the HVAC compared to other (older, cheaper) cars I'd owned. I generally resorted to...

    Into the heart of (supercharger) darkness.

    This won't be terribly informative for most long time owners, but I thought I'd share my weekend trip into the very epicenter of the Great Southern Supercharger Desert over the weekend. I've had an 85D for about two months, on 19" wheels. I live in Memphis, which is the largest (at least...

    Heber Springs, AR

    My brother has a lake house in Heber Springs, AR which is about 135 miles from my house in Memphis. Obviously, Heber Springs is near the center of the Great Southern Supercharger Desert, but I can't find anything even remotely close on plug share to make a day trip possible. He has 220v at his...

    85D in the rain

    I've had my 85 D for about three weeks, just over 1000 miles, and just completed my first road trip. The night before, we had the first significant rain since I'd gotten the car and I took it out to see how it handled in the wet. Wow. I've owned a bunch of cars with excellent traction...
