    2021 Tesla Model S Refresh Roof Rack Installation Nightmare!

    Just let the service center install it. Not worth the headache or the heartache when you break the glass. They will also torque it down to the correct specifications. If the glass breaks, no debate as to how it gets replaced and who pays for it.

    2021 Refreshed Model S - steering wheel yolk material peeling off?

    Well, I'm a victim of Tesla's poor yoke materials quality as well. Left lower corner is peeling off and revealing the ugly white material below. It's simply not acceptable the quality of the interior materials on these vehicles vs. the price point. Total trash. Cutting corners in the cars...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Tesla tries to screw everyone that owns one of their cars by insulting them with a "non-negotiable" trade in value well below market trade. I figure they do this to screw you since prices of your vehicle have probably increased by $10k since you ordered. They just make it up be killing you on...

    22 Model S, large scratch upon delivery

    This is exactly my point about Tesla, thanks for making it for me. If you don't do what we say we will cancel your order and keep you deposit fee. We will also make you pay more $$ if you want a non-defective car in the future. Total bullcrap business model and needs to be investigated by...

    22 Model S, large scratch upon delivery

    Why the hell would anyone accept a damaged new vehicle at any price. They have no issue sticking you with the defects and no incentive to fix them to your liking after you pay them. Yes, Tesla is that shady. You're left hoping, by their good graces, that they will fix their shoddy workmanship.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    I would not spend the $$$ rather have the chips repaired after a few years if they really bother you and save several thousand dollars. PPF seems like an overhyped waste of money given your car is already depreciating like a rock, some $7000 to $8,000 plastic on the hood isn't going to change...

    Significant Issues with 2022 Model X Plaid

    I'd have gotten out and let it roll to it's death. This is not a good car and needs to be replaced.

    2024 Chevy Blazer EV: Up to 320 mile range, MSRP between $45-$66k, plus a “Police Pursuit” model

    Reservation placed. So long Tesla. Voting with my feet. I'm done with all of your build quality issues, dishonest advertising, false promises, lack of parts availability, and garbage interior that rattles more and more every single day.

    Just tell your rep at the service center you'd like to inspect your new vehicle before doing any paperwork. They are human. Nothing is forced.

    2021 Model S LR high pitched whine

    Service says it's the battery cooling system. Said that because it's getting warmer out, you can hear it running now. Nice that the 2016 Model S loaner I received drives quieter in the cabin than my 2022 Model S. Good grief.

    You should lemon law this thing. My Tesla has been in the shop constantly since I purchased in December. I 100% regret the purchase because of it. Always for different build quality issues and random error codes. Parts availability has them moving service dates around the day prior to my...

    Black vs white interior

    My white interior very quickly started to show dye transfer from the clothes I wear. My wife is also stressed out about doing anything that may stain the seats. I would go black interior if I were to buy another Tesla so I didn't have to worry about it.

    2021 Model S LR high pitched whine

    My '22 S Plaid did not make that sound during the first 2,400 miles of ownership then 200 miles into a road trip this past weekend it started and is terribly annoying. I messaged Tesla service and had this added to the very long list of things that need to be addressed during my service...

    White '22 Model S - Yellow / Off-White Panels behind Auto Present Door handles???

    I'm completely serious. The lack of attention to detail, quality control, and issues throughout the car are not acceptable and we should not accept them.

    White '22 Model S - Yellow / Off-White Panels behind Auto Present Door handles???

    I guess all I can do is sigh. So many corners cut. I feel like I find something new every day. Can't wait for the Mercedes EQS SUV to be released. No chance I'm accepting my X Plaid based on my experience with the S Plaid. Decision could not be easier.

    White '22 Model S - Yellow / Off-White Panels behind Auto Present Door handles???

    Wanted to poll the group here to understand if you have a White Tesla model S refresh, when your door handles auto present themselves, is the plastic behind the door handle on your White car very heavily yellow tinged?

    I'm really starting to hate Tesla. This company is constantly nickel and diming (more like hundreds and thousands) it's customers to death with the price increases and sneaky removal of features that were available when you ordered. Constantly making decisions that are in their own best...

    Driver's Side Rear-view Mirror Vibration

    So, I have had my '22 S Plaid to the SC 3 times now to fix my driver's side rearview mirror glass which vibrates at nearly any speed. This is very annoying and distorts my view. I've never had this issue in a car at any price. Service Center has replaced the glass 2 times (didn't fix) and...

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Saw the new '22 refreshed taillights in person today at the SC. Not impressed. Looked like a slightly wider model 3 it was sitting next to. Not a good look to emulate the cheap model on the flagship car. Like my '22 pre-refresh better. Also had the new/original plaid logo badge on the...

    I would not take possession of any new vehicle, let alone a $100K+ vehicle, until it is 100% the way you want it. Give them incentive to fix it quickly.

    Nice, so they lend your cash savings back to you at a 1.87% interest rate and pay you .01% on your deposits. Current inflation eats another 8% of your cash savings. Not sure I understand this financial logic.

    PSA: MY price increases by $1K

    The Model Y is 1000% not worth the $70,000+ you will be paying after tax, title, and license. What a joke. I'm starting to lose a ton of respect for Tesla and seeing them for what they are...price gouging opportunists. Think of this, last time housing, automobiles, gasoline, groceries were...

    Model S Refresh - Push Center to Honk on Yoke?

    In the past 1-year I can recall using my horn 2 times. I wonder what kind of statistics Tesla has collected around horn usage to evaluate how much of an issue this really is? Maybe it will prevent people from using their horns unnecessarily as the flash moment of anger will have passed by the...

    This is a fake story. It is software. They deactivate it all the time with an over the air update. If you have noticed, they put it on all the "available inventory" cars to try and boost margins. I purchased a Model S Plaid that had FSD. It was removed via software update, I paid them and...

    Tesla Plaid.... Simply Amazing

    Is it common in everyday driving to accelerate to 100+ then mash the brakes repeatedly? I would think not. 99.9% of us will never take a 4-door sedan to the track or private drag strip either so, other than some youtube idiots or rag writers looking to sensationalize content, this is a...

    Tesla OEM Mud flaps for refresh S

    Here is what Tesla says about it.....you can find this info on the Tesla shop page for the roof rack by clicking the "support page" link. Model S vehicles equipped with the full glass roof but built prior to February 11, 2019 will require a retrofit performed by Tesla Service prior to the...

    Tesla OEM Mud flaps for refresh S

    I've had my Tesla mud-flaps on for 2 weeks driving on low settings and have had only 1 or 2 minor scrapes that I can remember - nothing that caused any concern. The material is soft for a reason and provides excellent protection for the vehicle. I have no regrets about using these flaps...

    2021+ Model S Roof Rack Clips Too Short?

    Without question, I would cancel it. Autopilot is sufficient or you can subscribe for $199mo when it is finally ready or you want to play with it. Also, most of the fun is driving the car yourself. You probably won't trust it enough to give the system full control anyway and, technically, if...

    OEM Tesla Model S Refresh Flaps

    Let them scrape. What is the issue? The material is soft for that purpose. I'd rather have a $40 product scraped than my $8k paint job. I also like the flaps for $40 vs. going full PPF for $4 grand which will also be destroyed from debris blasting against it.

    Model S 19" Tempest Wheel and Winter Tire Package

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Finally!!! I have been keeping my S Plaid in the garage this past month until these came available. Can't stomach paying thousands for PPF when a $40 mud flap will function much better to protect from the debris thrown from the front tires.
