    Handicapped parking spaces at Superchargers

    Someone on another blog wrote that charging per California Department of General Services1 1: An EV does not need to charge every time it’s parked; therefore public and common use EVCS are charging spaces and not parking spaces.  While an EV needs to be in a parked state to charge; charging...

    Handicapped parking spaces at Superchargers

    Can I get a simple answer? When a space is marked as both EV and handicapped is it reserved for either or, or is it ONLY for those with a placard AND charging? I just got a ticket by a security guard whom interpreted it as you must have BOTH. -So I found a police officer and asked him and he...

    I’d also like to know the value of ceramic brakes..? Can’t they just torque the regen so that the car recharges more? I thought Elon talked of doing away with disc brakes.

    Does anyone know what is causing this sound and how to fix it? It is not the AC because it continues with and without the air on. It’s not something hanging or dragging because it continues weather or not your moving. It usually starts when the care first starts up and then completely goes...

    Does it make a Da Da Da Da sound like this… I would love to know how to fix it. It usually starts for just a few moments after first starting the car. It stops at random. Has nothing to do with AC or if or if not moving.

    The American EV boom is about to begin. Does the US have the power to charge it?

    I wonder what ever happened to battery swap? If the government is to get involved they should standardize EV battery shapes and terminals so someday we can just pull up and swap out… a lot easier infrastructure than charging stations everywhere and it also help with range anxiety. Anyone who has...

    Is my Model Y Performance normal?

    Use the trip display for a more accurate mileage range. DON’T use miles on the instrument cluster % is the only way to go. And on the trip display try to keep at 300kWh, letting off at times of spike set at 5 mile AVG.

    How to deal with a service nightmare?

    All the service manager can provide is genuine sympathy. Trust me the company doesn’t care they the have their agenda unlike any other company and passive aggressive is their motto. This is why they love the app scheduler.

    2012 P85 HV battery replacement options -- need perspective.

    Did you ever get a quote from Jason Hughes 057 Tech? I’m in California and would consider shipping it out there before paying Tesla… You need to also consider the MCU issue. In a matter of time all Tesla has to do is push an OTA and you can forget Suppercharging, Windows, Radio, and Air unless...

    Is 1'000 USD too much for a 2 year service ?

    Is there an official Tesla manual and guide for annual service? For the first 75,000 miles I used to come in for routine annual maintenance and now they say its no longer necessary. Mostly they just replaced the brake fluid, cabin/carbon filter, and whipper blades and washer fluid, plus...

    MCU1 owners: what should we expect from our cars?

    I’ve had endless problems since the MCU recall. They actually did it twice because the 1st replacement was worse than the original. Now I’m having issues with Bluetooth, audio, seats and most recently: If this was a phone…ok but a new one. But a car should be able to run and cared as it...

    So we finally had the SVC check out the battery… despite slower charging (about a minute per hour), despite range reduction… the battery is healthy. Physically the car is PERFECT. But thanks to the recent firmware they admitted they’ve reduced the speed that the car will charge. Like an older...

    Over the air improvements or Over the air repairs? (No wonder such few recalls) *SupperCharging is Slower and Range Decreased!

    While toting how fast charging has evolved. How nice of them. I guess Shell should install a governor download while the ICE fills up at the pump to limit their RPM to help improve gas mileage. Then make the cars slower so that we toss them into landfills and replace every one with a brand new...
