    Bad luck. Small tree branch got into the front bottom light.

    It is this time of year in the Northeast. Tree leaves and branches fall on the ground. Yesterday in a parking lot, my model 3 hit a small branch. Magically, the branch got into the front bottom light. So unlucky. I have already scheduled an appointment next week with the Tesla Store. I also...

    Gas paddle [Correction: accelerator pedal]

    i have driven VW golf for the past 8 years. Just bought model 3. Even though the driving is great, the gas paddle of model 3 feels uncontrollable. I don’t know what it is. But I just felt that my foot will slip aside if I am not holding my foot at a certain angle. Anyone feels the same way at...

    How long did it take to get your adapter?

    Got an email saying it was back in stock on June 3, 2019 (three days ago). I put in an order but have not received any shipping notice. In contrast, I ordered a floor mat a couple of days ago and got the shipping notice the same day.

    AAA membership?

    I am a new Tesla Model 3 owner. Currently I have the basic AAA membership with 3 miles towing. I used it a couple of times in the last few years for jump up an ICE car when I forgot to turn off the light. I also used it once to open a rental car when I locked myself out without the key. I never...

    Do you really need tire rotation?

    Do you do tire balancing at the same time? I called local BJ's tire center. They charge $8 for rotation and $32 for rotation and balancing.

    Do you really need tire rotation?

    No discount tires nearby. I called my local MIDAS. They charge $19.99 for tire rotations, which is a reasonable price.

    Do you really need tire rotation?

    I owned ICE cars for more than 15 years and have never rotated any tires. I drive about 12K mile per year. I had to replace tires on my VW Tiguan after 5 years / 60K because the tire is leaking but the MIDAS people could not find any nails. Not sure if this is related to my not rotating the...

    3rd party home delivery and trade in

    I expect home delivery this weekend. I am in a state without Tesla store. Tesla will ship my car by 3rd party carrier and take my trade in car. From previous posts, my understanding is that 3rd party carrier will not wait for me to do a thorough inspection. The driver will just drop the car and...

    Manufacture date

    I should have done my homework better. I didn't realize that there is a cut-off date from HW2.5 to HW3. Anyway, my VIN number is between 400000 and 400500. I tried to google around to find a possible manufacture date. The twitter @model3vins posted that Tesla registered highest VIN 367644 on...

    Home delivery with trade in

    May I ask where and when was your delivery? They didn’t ask for photos. I actually sent some photos to the sales person and he said that photos are not necessary. I am in a state with no store. My guess is that no Tesla employee will come with the 3rd party delivery truck.

    Mail out trade in title before delivery

    I will get home delivery. I was sent a few pages of documents to sign and asked to return them along with the original title. They will not contact the 3rd party carrier until receiving these trade in document. Is this standard practice? I feel uncomfortable to send the title of my trade in...

    So confused about financing and home delivery

    I ordered a Model 3 last week, got a VIN a few days later. Now I don’t know what to do with auto loan and home delivery. My credit union needs certificate of origin to close the loan. I need the check before the delivery. But Tesla told me that the cherry won’t come until after delivery. I am so...

    Credit union loan timeline

    I am arranging a loan from a local credit union. The credit union requires (1) sales agreement with the credit union as the lien holder and (2) Copy of Title or Certificate of Origin to close the loan. How long will it take Tesla to provide them to me or the credit union? Your experience? I...

    Home charger for model 3

    What brand of home charger do you put for model 3 standard plus? I did some research online and talked to an electrician. I am still unclear about a few things.

    Do I need to pay full before home delivery?

    Do I need to pay full before home delivery? I looked through Tesla's frequently asked questions, still not clear. As I understand, if you go to a Tesla store to pick it up, you may bring a cashier's check. However, what happens for a home delivery is not explained. Tesla has sales license in my...
