    New deliveries come without key fob?

    What a shame. I still remember my delight when the sales person demoed the "mini Tesla" fob for us at Fremont in 2013. I still get a kick out of using it. Thank you, DerbyDave, for the link to the article. I'm glad that the fob is still an option for new models. You'd think that they could...

    Door handle continuously running

    Your post describes to a T the new issue with our SP85's rear driver-side door handle! Thanks to everyone for the assuring comments: It's a job that the Ranger can fix in 10-minutes With no load on the mechanism's motor, a delay of a month or more for repair, will not burn out the motor...

    Our Model S lost LTE music streaming a few days ago...

    Our 2013 Model S also lost music streaming (mid-September?). We attributed it to an incomplete software update. We have poor wifi even with a range booster and spotty cell coverage. We had some other issues with the display and navigation, so did a Touchscreen Reboot as directed by Tesla...
