    Supercharger - Cameron Park, CA (under construction Aug 2022, 12 stalls)

    I went by there on the 13th and it’s still not paved; I guess the paving is part of the brewery permit.

    Superchargers in Northern California (location speculation)

    Tesla "find us" supercharger map appears to have been updated. I noticed the following new locations in northern California: City Target Opening Anderson Q2, 2023 Arnold Q2, 2023 Capitola Q2, 2023 Half Moon Bay Q3, 2023 Morgan Hill (2nd location) Q2, 2023 Pollock Pines Q3, 2023...

    Supercharger - San Juan Bautista, CA (location speculation)

    Tesla's "find us" map now shows San Juan Bautista with a target opening of Q1, 2023. Does anyone have an Accela account to check for a building permit with San Benito county? Or if you live nearby, be on the lookout for construction activity and report what you find.

    Supercharger - Pollock Pines, CA (location speculation)

    Pollock Pines is now showing on the Tesla "find us" map with a target opening of Q3, 2022. I checked for building permits from 11/1 to now and didn't find anything. The most likely location for Pollock Pines is on Pony Express Trail near Sly Park Road, as that's the commercial district with all...

    List of locations with pull-through stalls

    I added the towing package to my X this summer and may tow a trailer from gold country down to Borrego Springs in February. While researching this trip I’ve found that none of the resources I use to find chargers (Tesla findus page, supercharger.info, Plugshare) show whether a Supercharger...

    Creaking/Squeaking control arm ball joint fix

    Cameron Park Auto’s labor rate is $150/hr, with a 10% discount for AAA members. Cost me $135.

    Creaking/Squeaking control arm ball joint fix

    Thanks @Jillmark99! I showed this thread to a local auto shop. They removed the urethane seal, allowing them to move the rubber boot and directly apply more white grease (that’s what was in there). They then moved the ball around as you described to distribute the grease and then resealed. Did...

    Supercharger - Cameron Park, CA (under construction Aug 2022, 12 stalls)

    Transformer was installed (local business told me PG&E turned off power recently to do it) and it looks like they’re preparing to pave. The only question now is whether they’ll move the chain link fence and let the site open before the brewery, or wait until the brewery opens, which is now...

    Supercharger - Cameron Park, CA (under construction Aug 2022, 12 stalls)

    Chargers and cabinets are in, but lot still unpaved and no transformer. Looks like site won’t open until the brewery site is further along in its construction.

    Supercharger - Cameron Park, CA (under construction Aug 2022, 12 stalls)

    Construction is underway—permit shows underground electrical was inspected and approved yesterday.

    Supercharger - Cameron Park, CA (under construction Aug 2022, 12 stalls)

    Location is now on Tesla’s map with a Q3 target opening, which is unlikely to be met as the brewery building was only just framed. Correct city name is Cameron Park, not Shingle Springs (the two share a zip code so this is a common mistake).

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA (18 V2 stalls)

    I navigated to the *restaurant*, not to the supercharger. Lesson learned.

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA (18 V2 stalls)

    Leaving Kettleman now…as tow truck is dropping off another Tesla here.

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA (18 V2 stalls)

    Just unloading my X now off the tow truck at Kettleman City. Have 100 mile AAA membership, so it was free. Only cost is an extra hour of charging time that was supposed to happen while we were eating. Driver said I was his third tow to Kettleman today.

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA (18 V2 stalls)

    I just arrived here, having planned this trip months ago to stop here for dinner in the way to LA. All the chargers are down, apparently since last night. I left my level 2 adapter at home and have only 20 miles of range left. In short, I’m screwed.

    Supercharger - Cameron Park, CA (under construction Aug 2022, 12 stalls)

    Progress report: Per county web site, building permit #0348418 shows revised plans were submitted 4/13 with “revised location for transformer and switchgear per PG&E comments.”

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA (8 V2 stalls)

    This snow tire discussion is interesting but very off topic and should be moved to a new thread in a different forum.

    MASTER THREAD: post here if you know that a Supercharger is down due to utility power shutdowns

    The power has been out in downtown Placerville since 7am with no ETA for repair yet. Use the Missouri Flat Supercharger at Target now instead of the one on Broadway.

    Supercharger - Ripon, CA (under construction Jun 2022, 12 stalls)

    The “Find Us” map on Tesla.com shows Ripon with a target opening of Q4 2021, but this lot is still just vacant land. It appears that the correct address is 704 N Jack Tone Rd, as that parcel is currently listed for sale for $3.4M and the listing says, “Great opportunity to develop brand new gas...

    Supercharger - Mojave, CA (EXPANDED Dec 2021, 6 V2 + 4 V3 + 2 urban stalls)

    I was there last Tuesday about 9am. I was the only car there. No changes to report.

    Supercharger - Inyokern, CA - Locust Ave. (LIVE 6 Sep 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    Construction nearly complete. Need to pave over the conduit cut, stripe, and add utility transformer.

    Supercharger - Turlock, CA - 3000 Countryside Dr. (permit found, May 2020)

    According to the Stanislaus County ARCGIS, the parcel numbers for the parking lots next to the Baskin Robbins are 088016022 and 088016020. No open permits show under those APNs. The adjacent Walmart parking lot, APN 088016018, doesn’t show any open permits either, but it does show two prior...

    Supercharger - Jackson, CA (LIVE 5 Nov 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Red Hawk, off US 50 in Placerville, has destination chargers, not superchargers. Huge difference.

    MASTER THREAD: post here if you know that a Supercharger is down due to utility power shutdowns

    PG&E will be turning off power in Placerville today sometime between 3 and 6pm due to high winds, with restoration estimated by 10pm Tuesday. See PGE Emergency Site - PSPS Events for live updates. Nearest Supercharger is Folsom and should be unaffected.

    Tesla Offer Trunk/Frunk Group Buy (3/S/X)

    Had the same issue. The hood hook was contacting the latch mechanism a little too far to the left (like 1mm). On my 2016 X, the latch mechanism plate has no left/right play; just up/down. I had to move the hood hook slightly to the right; you'll need a Torx T40 head to loosen the two bolts and...

    Trunk door sometimes unexpectedly shuts on my head!

    That fixes close all - but you can still pocket-press the trunk button, as my head will attest.

    Disabling explicit lyrics... doesn't

    On a related note, it would be nice if you could delete a streaming station from your recent list (could use a similar interface to how you delete an app from an iPhone - just press and hold for a while and then an X appears to let you delete). I've asked the car to play a song with a racy title...

    Supercharger - Merced, CA - Martin Luther King Junior Way (LIVE 9 Mar 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    I have been checking the City of Merced’s monthly posts of new building permits for about two years. November just came out, and still no Supercharger for Merced, which has been “coming soon” on tesla.com for years now. I take the scenic route from Placerville to Fresno and points south via Hwy...

    Diehard Tesla Fanatic Turning in MX

    You're in Texas, where I believe you pay sales tax up front on the full purchase price of the car when you lease it. In California you only pay sales tax on each monthly lease payment. The difference is that the residual value isn't taxed in California when you give back the vehicle at...

    Passenger-side rearview mirror

    Does the inside look like this? I hit a garbage can and sheared off the plastic center disc the mirror mounts onto. Tesla will only sell me an entire new mirror.

    Supercharger - Stateline, NV (South Lake Tahoe)

    The comments to the reddit posting say the stalls are in the valet section of the parking lot. The smart thing for Hard Rock to do is offer charging as part of their valet service, moving your car when charging is complete. This would avoid idle fees and induce people to spend time (i.e. $$) in...

    No incentive to keep improving AutoPilot on HW1

    A big reason Tesla will continue to improve AP 1.0 is to avoid refunding the $2500 every owner paid for it. Remember - summon, autopark and autosteer are all still considered "beta" software. If those features are never released then users will be able to demand their money back.

    Tesla - parental controls, PLEASE!

    Another parental control concept is that of sound system content. I often listen to comedy when driving and much of that is R rated. If we walk up to the car to take a family drive it resumes playing whatever I was last listening to. I have small children and more than once I've had to say "LA...

    California drivers: HOV sticker tips?

    Double vision (ghosting) at night through windshield?

    I can corroborate this. My X was delivered last month with a crack under the tinting on the lower right edge of the windshield, directly under the temporary registration sticker. It wasn't caught at inspection or delivery, and even when I noticed something a few days later it just looked like...

    Model X Financing questions

    California lawmakers unplug the state's electric car program

    AB1613 would allocate $100,000,000 to the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. It's currently in the senate, if you want to contact your state senator to express support. It was amended in the senate, so if approved there it will have to go back to the assembly for ratification before going to the...

    Uncouple Air Suspension

    I think Tesla will open this back up. The introduction of the 60D indicates a weakening of demand for Model X, requiring Tesla to offer a lower-priced vehicle to keep their pipeline full. It's reasonable to assume that they'll re-introduce coil suspension options for 6/7 seaters too to stimulate...

    Model X inventory car purchase

    One explanation would be wanting to sell them prior to a hardware refresh that would impact their sale price. Wondering if this could be the cause: Autopilot 2.0 coming this year according to Technobuffalo piece on July 5.
