    FYI: My opinion is Model 3 > Model S

    What % of your driving time are you using the Plaids extra horse power? Are you not driving the “standard” Model S the majority of the time you are in the car? Unless you want us to believe you are flooring it from your cul de sac to the local Starbucks and kids soccer game. Spare us the...

    FYI: My opinion is Model 3 > Model S

    Nailed it….but if the OP titled the thread model 3 is more fun to drive than S we probably wouldn’t be here. It’s probably the least practical for a family though.

    Discussion: Large price reduction Across Tesla vehicle family 1.12.2023

    I don’t think it will work like that. Many instances of folks claiming multiple credits on a single vin. The IRS ain’t putting that much effort into this kind of enforcement.

    Wait new model LR AWD or take a used performance.

    The new Y has a “comfort” suspension, maybe you 3 will . You’ll likely get better interest rate on new.

    How does 2020 model s compare to refreshed s?

    The biggest difference is the yoke, back and main screen, dual car chargers and vented seats. The ride will be essentially the same. Is that worth $30k…only you know

    Why so much of for sale

    Uhhhhh…. I don’t t know. It’s like if Las Vegas were a car, this would be it. The lights are great, a bit distracting, sure you can pick up chicks but it’s really ugly when you look at it at from afar with a I don’t think I could live here sort of vibe.

    Tesla lost me - trading in me 1 month old 2022 MYLR

    @Apostle what year is your S? How many miles? I’m starting to plan my exit strategy as well but hoping I can at least ride out the battery warranty. SC in Houston has been good to me and my MS20 but the problem is I’ve been there way too often for my long term comfort. I think we are up to 3 SC...

    Tesla insurance if you have it in your state is the way to go.

    Tesla lost me - trading in me 1 month old 2022 MYLR

    I’m in Texas… I drive 40 miles and I haven’t left the county. I’d say you are within range of a SC. It’s these 100+ mile folks I’m looking at.

    Tesla lost me - trading in me 1 month old 2022 MYLR

    Help me understand…Why purchase from a company that has no SC near you? That’s a recipe for frustration. The texting part takes getting use to but they’ve been super responsive and it has its benefits for sure. If I want to speak to someone I just drop by the SC and get all the answers I need...

    Just got my pack replaced: 1014116-00-c

    Just got word from my SC that it may be in next week. That’s a pretty good turnaround , dropped off Nov 9.

    Just got my pack replaced: 1014116-00-c

    My man! What model? What are they telling you?
  14. popgodazipa

    Just got my pack replaced: 1014116-00-c

    It’s this part right here. That’s a lawyers dodge if I ever seen one. What are those other factors…I know my car wasn’t getting 400 on a full charge but it was north of 350. You can’t get that without getting me a 100kWh pack. I may be wrong but we shall see.
  15. popgodazipa

    Just got my pack replaced: 1014116-00-c

    I don’t speak lawyer but apparently they do. Translation..I’m screwed. Not a great time to trade in so I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what they find. The SC said they were looking for one comparable, might be a minute. Did get a loaner though…shout out to the SC on Westheimer, home of...

    Just got my pack replaced: 1014116-00-c

    I was getting a lot more than that with the 100kWh pack, although south of 400mi. Are folks getting 100kWh replacements or am I screwed?
  17. popgodazipa

    Just got my pack replaced: 1014116-00-c

    Mine is at the SC for replacement as well. 2020 MS with about 65K miles on it. I purchased it new with 400ish miles of advertised range. Here’s what Tesla said about my replacement… “it will be a remanufactured battery pack that meets the specs of your vehicle when you first took delivery”. I’m...

    22% Rate Increase from Geico 🤬

    GEICO played the same card on me in September…moved to Tesla insurance and we now pay about $220 for our Y and S. They do offer a multi car discount

    Tesla Update 2022.36.1 Finally Lets You Track Your Energy Consumption

    Well they have to figure a way to get us out of these cars and into a new model someway. I’m with you…I’m not giving up free SC for that.

    Model S 2022 to Model Y 2022 - Should I switch?

    l The OP is looking at a 2022 S or Y, range is greater for the S obviously but I was not aware that the 2019 were not comparable. Certainly a new Y vs an older S you’d have to go with the Y.

    Model S 2022 to Model Y 2022 - Should I switch?

    Just curious… are there any reports on TMC of folks trading in a raven MS or better for MYs? If not, that should tell you all you need to know. I have a 22 Y and 20 S. They are both really nice but come on..this is not a hard decision if you can afford it. And if you can and really need the...

    Safety Score for Insurance

    I’m in Houston and just got Tesla insurance on a Y. I have GEICO on my S and I’ve been told I’m not the best driver but when I get in the Y I just drive…damn the score. Funny thing is my Y score goes up in comparison to when my wife and she drives her age * 2. Switching to Tesla for the S at the...

    Houston, Texas - Model Y Deliveries

    @Travelguy73 these things will catch up to Tesla at some point one would believe. The crucial strategy that Tesla seems to out perform their competitors on is vertical integration. It’s just outpacing their focus on the customer experience but to this point, not to their detriment.

    The Tesla watch app is a good backup as well.

    After Market Rims Causing Bearing Issues

    Update: since I mentioned it while the car was under warranty and they misdiagnosed it they covered the repair as a “good will” gesture. She rides like she’s brand new.

    After Market Rims Causing Bearing Issues

    Service center is replacing wheel bearings out of warranty on my legacy MS2020. They tell me that my aftermarket t-sportsline rims may be the cause(20s). Anyone else experienced this? I’m considering upgrading to the stock 21s, hate to think I’ll be looking at repairs down the road if I put the...

    Houston, Texas - Model Y Deliveries

    They didn’t even show us the car before accepting delivery. I was cool with it, could have went parking lot pimping for it if I was so inclined. I was not inclined.

    Paying by check next week at the Westheimer location and wondering if anyone can share their experience. Will they really let me drive away with a brand new Tesla with just a picture of the check? Am I suppose to then go to fedex and text the tracking info? Or do they want me to send the check...

    Model Y Reservation or Car- Texas

    Soooooo….honestly, I’m putting feelers out. I have a MYM, white interior, 5 seater, Gemini that I am considering selling. I’m in my EDD window for whatever that is worth. I’m interested in folks willing to a) buy reservation or b) buy car after I take delivery. Obviously I’d prefer the former...

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    True that. I mean dude is definitely a eccentric but damn…why the hate from Cali and Biden for a “made in America” company like Tesla. Shows that if you are not playing the insider game you will pay one way or another. Disgusting. How about picking up the phone DMV and just sorting this stuff...

    Have not seen many white interior cars delivered to our local Tesla dealer here in Houston. My MY MSM, white interior, 5 seater is still on track for Aug 9-23 EDD. Could it be they are switching over to this batch of interior cars?

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Nice to see MSM coming out of Austin. I’ve got a similar window. Will it push back my EDD if I add my trade in now? EDD 8/9-8/23
