    yes, Tesla replaced my non-working keyfob for free

    someone posted awhile back complaining that tesla charged them to replace a non-working keyfob on a vehicle under warranty. I just had the Tesla mobile service guy out to do some recall service items and told them when they called to setup the appointment that one of our keyfobs was dead. The...

    16 mi per day phantom drain, sitting in an airport. 2nd car on the same app the problem?

    2018X is sitting in a (covered) airport parking lot for the past 10 days. We peeked at it for the first time yesterday and the battery was way down. Sentry mode is (and was) off. Car interior says 85deg, and interior climate control is off. We've lost ~160miles of range in the past 10 days. We...

    what's needed to plug the mobile charger into 220?

    Recently took the X half-way across the US and we'll be staying put where we are for several weeks, likely months. I brought the mobile charger, since this house doesn't have a wall-charger installed. I forgot to bring whatever adaptor it needs for 220. :/ Since we aren't going _anywhere_ for...

    supercharger stations are still up - even w/ everyone hunkering down?

    We need to make a treck half-way across the US. Elderly MIL is in the mid-west and there's no one else around to help her. We're heading out from CA tomorrow AM and will be driving the X to get there. (we have a place near her, so we're fine as far as where to stay once we're there). It'll be...

    iPhone ap deleted my X?

    went to up the target charge to 100%. There's discussion here about packing up the X and driving to the summer cabin because everyone would rather hunker down for a month or two there than our rest-of-the-year place. As soon as I opened it I got a notice that 'puppy' (the nickname of the X) was...

    heat under passenger seat?

    the other day I was rummaging around in the back seat foot-well while sitting in the drivers seat and was surprised to notice it was distinctly warm. I think it's related to the heater (forced air, not seats) being on. It's directly UNDER the front passenger seat, and not under the driver's...

    Only hitting high 60s? I checked it was a 150KW site

    late 2018X. Haven't done a lot of supercharging - it's generally just plugged in at home. This past weekend we took a road trip from the Bay Area to LA and used the superchargers at Buttomwillow & Kettleman City. Both say they're 150KW charging locations on the map. Both times I made sure...

    rear-ended by someone elses rear-end

    was stopped in the grocery store parking lot, waiting for the car in front of me to park. someone backed out of their parking spot and backed into the left side of the bumper. totally cosmetic damage to the 3....but more than just paint. The plastic of the bumper seems a bit cracked +...

    EAP hugs the right side of the lane?

    It's consistent - it's further to the right side of the lane than I'm comfortable with. I attempted to lean over and look from the middle (and also check my mirrors) and it does seem to be much closer to the right side of the lane than the left. Human drivers (in the US) tend to be closer to...

    bluetooth/phone unlocking doesn't work if the app has my other tesla selected

    Have 2 Teslas (a 3 and an X). Unlocking w/ the phone is hit or miss...probably works 80% of the time. I think the issue is that if I have the other car selected in the app it breaks the bluetooth connection w/ the 3 and hence won't unlock it, or if it does it won't let me drive it. super...

    FWD dumps water on passenger when opened

    looking through forums I'm seeing conflicting reports on this. First heavy rain since we got the X a few months ago. I didn't see it, but my kids report that when they opened the door it dumped material amounts of water on their lap. This can't be the intended design. Is something wrong w/...

    ALL sound goes away? Requires a reset?

    2 month old X. This has happened twice in the past week, so apparently this is a recurring thing. :/ DW hops in the car and all sound (not just the stereo, but also turn signals, navigation, etc) is gone. Both times I tried everything I could think of to get it back w/o success. Eventually...

    how am I losing 10mi worth of charge over night?

    2month old M3 LR-RWD. Sits in a garage in northern California overnight, unplugged. Weather during the drive home is clear/dry, temp about 65. Ovenight low is maybe 50...it's t-shirt weather basically all the time right now. I notice, pretty consistently, that the miles-estimate the next...

    FWD handle fell off / was taken?

    Haven't inspected the car myself. DW just texted me that she was parked at a TraderJoes for a short visit and came out to find we're missing the door handle on the driver side FWD. No other signs of damage or forced entry. Maybe it fell off while driving there and she didn't notice? (we have...

    Options for covering up the truly awful faux-wood dash bits?

    overall...this is a beautiful car and I'm super happy. I really (really really) hate the fake wood dash business. Can anyone recommend something to cover it with?

    Ordered Sunday, got a call about delivery today

    Just got a call - they have my car (blue, LR, RWD, std wheels) available and would like to schedule delivery asap. Should I be concerned that they've already got a car - clearly, it was pre-built and looking for an owner as opposed to built to order. Is this likely to be one that someone...

    M3 test-drive: turn-signals and the head-rest

    test-drove (and ordered) a 3 yesterday. We recently got an X and I was quite surprised by how differently it drove. First irritating thing...the turn signal. Why does the stalk not stay put when you use it to signal left or right? I get that the turn-signal continues to be on after just a...

    Auto-LaneChange non-functional on new X

    Was at the Sunnyvale store yesterday ordering a 3 and the sales folks there took us for a test-drive in our new X to walk through some of the things we'd missed/misunderstood. It seems auto-lane-change is non-functional. The (super, super nice) Tesla assoc checked that it was enabled and was...

    Does your X role (fwd or bkwd) when you stop on an incline?

    I've got creap mode off. Talking to a Tesla sales rep he mentioned that it should essentially place itself in park when you have your feet off both pedals and it's at a dead stop. Mine doesn't..if I'm on even a modest incline it'll role fwd (or bkwd). Does yours stay put or also roll?

    options for reducing dashboard glare?

    Day 4 w/ the X. It was very bright and sunny out this afternoon. DW is having an issue w/ glare. She's prone to migraines and is concerned this will contribute. The issue is the grid-like part of the dash near where it meets the windshield. That part seems fairly reflective and you can in...

    Disapointing Delivery Experience

    Picked up the blue MX 100D today. Car looks nice. Wife was nervous because it's bigger than what she's been driving but reports she was quite comfortable driving it, etc. So far, the car's fine. The pickup experience kinda sucked. I'm sure it's partly that expectations were high. It's been...

    How long does it take to pickup an X?

    Picking up the P100 this week. woot woot. How long should I allot for the pickup process? The whole family will be going, but I will have to work later that day and there's stuff to do. I'll look through the threads on what to look for when going over the car. Anything else I should know?

    just curious...why are so many people installing dash cams?

    seems super common. It's just a camera that records the road in front of you as you commute to work or drop off the kids @ soccer practice...right? Feels like I'm missing something....

    Tesla Sales folks: "7500 US tax credit expires in june"

    the sales guy @ the local Tesla store has been pushing that we must take delivery of the X during June or: 1) US Fed tax credit drops from 7500 ->3750. 2) no lifetime free supercharging For the 7500$ credit to expire in June they'd have to have shipped 200k during Q1 2018, right? I feel like...

    Ordered an X. Declined FSD. Is this a mistake?

    As explained by the sales guy, this does nothing for now and is just a SW upgrade so we could to it later when/if the car is suddenly able to drive while I nap. He also seriously oversold the self-driving capabilities ("it's capable of driving itself from NY to LA, that's just not legal yet")...

    Can you make the falcon doors less conservative?

    We put down a deposit Saturday. Had a 'garage test' w/ an X today. The garage is a bit tight. The falcon doors on one side didn't open very far. I think the issue is that the other car was kinda close. When it stopped there was nothing within at least 12". If it'd been willing to get a bit...

    Just bought an X. My first Tesla. It'll be the family beater and we'll ignore it. Suggestions?

    This is a material upgrade from the current family car - a 2003 MPV. And, while everyone's all enamored with the Tesla right now, I know how this will go. We're not going to wash it weekly. Probably not even monthly. It doesn't snow here, so no salt on the road, which helps. It's going to...
