    Really crappy service experience

    Went to use my Model 3's air conditioning for the first time in April just to find out it didn't work at all. No big deal, *sugar* happens. Scheduled a service appointment. Soonest appointment was 2 weeks out. A few days before the appointment they did a remote diagnosis and confirmed the...

    No longer able to preheat steering wheel from app?

    I updated my Tesla app yesterday (android) and clicking on the steering wheel in the Climate menu no longer turns on the steering wheel heater. What gives? It was nice walking out to a warm steering wheel.

    Tesla lost bank check, then claimed it bounced, now threatening repo

    I picked up my car 3 weeks ago and gave Tesla two certified bank checks. I got a call 2 days later from the local service center claiming I never gave them one of the checks. I told them that I handed the checks directly to the sales advisor and we ended the conversation. I got a call a week...

    Every fire hydrant = traffic cone

    Tesla's neural network is showing every fire hydrant I drive past as a traffic cone. It see's orange and assumes cone. Tesla, if you are reading this, you still have a long ways to go.

    My two biggest problems with the cybertruck

    How do you load long objects like plywood or drywall without sliding them in from the rear amd damaging them? Normally you have a second helper and load it from the side. There's no way to side load anything with the current design. Also, how do you see out the front? The low slope of the...

    Establishing diminished value for insurance

    I was sitting stopped waiting to turn when I got rear ended by a SUV traveling ~40 mph today. They were distracted and never even touched the brakes. TeslaCam caught it all. Bumper, trunk lid, etc. are destroyed. Rear 1/4 panels appear to be ok to my unskilled eye, but the charge port won't...

    Frustrated with service

    I have been having a hell of a time trying to schedule service for my car. Tesla keeps cancelling my appointments and says to email them days for a mobile ranger to perform the service. But then Tesla's local mobile service team never responds to my emails that they asked me to reply to. Now the...

    False emergency collision braking

    Anyone else having issues with false emergency collision braking events? They tend to happen to me when I am approaching light colored cars that are stopped. Attached is an example from this morning. The dashcam video makes me look much closer than I was in real life. I had nearly two full car...

    Service scheduling woes

    Last time I scheduled service for my 3 I was able to do it online. It was quick and easy. It looks like Tesla removed this feature from their site. Also, if I try to call my local service center direct I get a 45 minute wait notice for the call. WTF Tesla? So my options are to wait on hold for...

    42.2 update - regen change sucks

    The latest 42.2 update for RWD cars changes the regen to make it less aggressive when in standard mode. I had to use my brakes a hell of a lot more in traffic today, and it makes the twisty roads less fun. This was a HUGE step back in driving performance. I want the old regen back! Give us an...
