    Best 19 tires replacement

    I just replaced the tires on my 2018 MS100D. I got 60,000 miles out of the Michelin Energy tires I replaced. Very happy with them. My new tires are Michelin Primacy Tour A/S. Hoping I get similar miles out of them.

    12V Battery Problem

    The other part that really bothered me was their refusal to offer me a loaner car, even though they admitted it was a warranty repair. I appealed to the SC manager, but he still refused. I was without my car for a full week, all because of a 12V battery.

    12V Battery Problem

    They told me they charge the diagnostic fee if they perform a diagnostic check, no matter what the issue turns out to be.

    12V Battery Problem

    Picked up the car Monday morning. Tesla charged me $195 for diagnosis fee. They replaced the 12v battery at no charge (it was under warranty since they had just installed it 11 months ago). My only serious complaint is the fact that it took a week to get a 12v battery!

    12V Battery Problem

    I’ve had a great experience with my Tesla, up until this point. This is the first time I’ve actually considered switching back to ICE. Tesla has not handled this well IMHO. I messaged Elon on Twitter about my problem, but no reply. I guess he’s a little busy now. . .

    12V Battery Problem

    I did not notice which lights came on when I plugged back in, but lights did come on, where they did not prior to the boost. The charging indicators in the drivers display appeared perfectly normal, except no miles were being added. I only observed that for a minute or so, before I gave up...

    12V Battery Problem

    The tow truck driver did use a high powered portable jumper and the car immediately came alive. At that point, I tried to charge the car. It would not charge. Perhaps we didn't give it long enough.

    12V Battery Problem

    I'm not competent to open the frunk when the car is dead. The tow driver took over an hour to get the frunk open. He went through the spokes of each of the front wheels to do it. My friend who drives a M3 said his 12-volt lithium-ion battery lasted only a year, and I've read other similar...

    12V Battery Problem

    Last week I returned from a 3-day trip. My 2018 MS100D was plugged-in the entire time in my Garage. When I tried to leave for work, after my trip, my car was completely dead. I could not connect with my app, I could not remove the charging cable, no lights came on, handles would not extend...

    Best 19 tires replacement

    One of my biggest concerns when I was considering buying my MS100D was tire wear. I had read horror stories about tires lasting only 5,000 to 15,000 miles! I drive 25,000 miles/year, so that would mean going through lots of tires. I’ve been pleasantly surprised that I got 42,000 out of my OEM...

    Best 19 tires replacement

    Thanks for the information. I really don't' need an all season tire, since almost all of my driving is in GA and FL. I do want a tire that gets good traction in rain, though. I want at least a 60,000 mile tire. TireRack shows a Michelin "Primacy 4". Is that the same as a "Primacy MXM4"??

    Best 19 tires replacement

    Are you still happy with your Pilot Sport 4's? Does Michelin offer an "acoustic" version and "non-acoustic" version? Are you still getting low wh/mi? I'm ready to replace the tires on my 2018 MS100D. Thanks for your help.

    Service Bulletin out on Hard Acceleration "Shudder"

    Does it only apply to cars that are still under Tesla warranty?? My MS100D was repaired for this condition while it was still under warranty, but that repair did not last very long. I'm out of warranty now and the condition is still there.

    Need advice on 2020 MSLR tire replacement

    I believe Michelin has an all-new EV tire (Pilot Sport EV) out now. You might want to check that out.

    Anyone have experience with Bridgestone Quiettrack tires

    I bought 4 QuietTracks at Costco. They gave me a 30-day return guarantee. I was not happy with the QuietTracks due to inefficiency, so I returned them after 3 weeks for a full refund, and purchased a set of Michelin Energy tires. I've been very happy with them and now have 48,000 miles on them...

    Faster Charging for 2018 Model S??

    Thanks. I think the highest I’ve gotten is 167KW. Very frustrating watching those M3’s and MY’s getting 250KW and I can’t.

    Faster Charging for 2018 Model S??

    Is it possible to upgrade the charging capability on my 2018 MS100D so that I can take advantage of the 250KW Superchargers? Thanks

    Anyone have experience with Bridgestone Quiettrack tires

    That’s exactly what I experienced when I went from factory Goodyear’s to QuieTracks: Significant drop in efficiency! Costco allowed me to return them . After replacing with Michelin’s, efficiency went up significantly.

    Anyone have experience with Bridgestone Quiettrack tires

    I installed the Michelin "Energy" tires. Not the "Energy Saver". I've been very happy with them. I have 28,000 miles on them now and they are wearing very well. I expect to get 50,000 miles, which is what I had hoped for.,

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Be sure to let us know which new EV you purchase and how you like it.

    Thanks for the advice! What year is your MS? How many miles does it have? Have you had lots of repairs after the initial warranty ran out?

    Official: Model S Service Plans

    Thanks for your reply. I'm wondering if the early Tesla's (2012-2015) have more issues than the later ones. It seems that way in reading the posts on this forum. How many miles do you have on your MS now?

    Official: Model S Service Plans

    I've got over 48,000 miles on my 2018 MS 100D and the only issue I have had is the DRL's. I was thinking of getting the extended warranty, but it doesn't seem to me to be worth it. Even if the DRL's keep going out, I have the option of paying to replace them, or simply live with the yellow look...

    Best 19 tires replacement

    I got 42000 out of my OEM Goodyear’s, and probably could have gotten 3000-5000 more. I’m definitely not an aggressive driver, but I do punch it from time to time.

    Very Disappointing Trip Charging

    Agreed, but I’ve shared with other cars many times before, but never saw charge rates any where near this low

    I believe they were all V2 chargers.

    Very Disappointing Trip Charging

    Like I said, this was a first for me in 1.5 years. It's common to get high charging rate initially, then slows down as SOC goes higher. However, this started out really low (44 kw) then got lower (11 kw)

    Very Disappointing Trip Charging

    that seems like the most likely answer to me. The chargers were being used heavily that day, so couldn't find a charger that didn't have a vacant adjacent slot. I check with other drivers and they were experiencing the same thing I was. Maybe some Supercharging stations need to be upgraded.

    Very Disappointing Trip Charging

    In the infrequent cases where I charge to 100% at home for a trip, I still get 318 miles, which is what I got when I first picked up the car. So, I don't think the battery is shot.

    Very Disappointing Trip Charging

    I've taken several road trips in my 2018 MS 100D. The Supercharging has been mixed, but mostly good. However, my trip from Palm Beach FL to Atlanta GA on June 28 was horrible. I should have only needed to make 3 Supercharger stops, but ended up having to make 5. Charging rates at all of the...

    Just Got FSD - Now What?

    Just picked up my 2018 MS 100D today after install of FSD. So far, I haven’t seen any evidence that I have FSD. How do I take advantage of this feature? What evidence should I see that I even have it?

    Anyone have experience with Bridgestone Quiettrack tires

    I installed Michelin Energy (not Energy Saver) tires. I searched on Tire Rack and it was one of the options they offered for my 2018 MS 100D. However, if you go onto the MichelinMan website and search for tires for my car, it doesn’t list the Energy tire as one of the recommended tires. Only one...
