    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    It's a fault in the battery....not the charging (which I had to have replaced in November for $1200!)....I'm just so frustrated because the numerous times I talked with them, all they told me was it had to be operating when I dropped it off....(I had been panicking since I thought the battery...

    This pic is horrible quality but a friend invited me to a PUC event he was speaking at in SF and I happily attended just for the random opportunity to get a picture of him with my license plate :). This was in 2014.....This is how much I love Tesla and the vision of Elon....praying I don't get...

    Exactly!!!! I thought they would deliver my car on a tow (like they did with our signature nearly 10 years ago!) and then tow my trade-in back....If I knew ahead of time some random was going to be driving my car to me probably maxing it out on the way, I'd say Hell NO.....so I think this will...

    Thanks for the support!!!! The frustrating thing is that we've been Tesla supporters since 2008/2009....we put down the $25k for the first signature (follow on Model S in 2013 and Model 3 in 2018)....we were all in....service for first few years was awesome, acknowledging our support and...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    So I did factory reset and it charged up to 23....:( Tesla called me this afternoon to confirm my home delivery on Friday and asked about the trade-in since they had a chance to review the service history(??!!!!)...Well didn't you guys do this when you gave me my trade-in offer two weeks ago...

    Oh no...I was just mentioning I'm the DeDe not the John...LOL! The battery is having a failure...I don't know the technicals around it....but it started with only charging to a maximum of 150 then down to max 120....all the way down now to 22....

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    They quoted me $16,900....I submitted the car for trade-in and assumed they did their due diligence on service history since they have the car VIN, etc....I'm taking home delivery of my new car and assume they'll just load up my 2013 on the same tow they bring new one....When I was worried that...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Thank you! Sadly, the reason for the purchase was both of our cars are just out of warranty...in fact, six weeks after warranty, my battery (on the white 2013) suffered a complete failure and Tesla said it would cost $12-$13k to refurbish....no way! So I've got 25 miles of battery left, and...

    How long have you been waiting? (when did you reserve?)

    We put down our deposit on July 17, 2010, for P2222. When final pricing came out in December, we changed our reservation to Sig965, primarily because I wanted the sig red. I sold John on the upgrade by reminding him he could get HOV access earlier.

    Solar Garage Anyone?

    We just went live with our PV solar system on November 1 (San Jose, CA). We started getting quotes in April; finalized bid with Sungevity in May; and they began installation in September. PG&E connected us to the grid on November 1, the start of lower winter rates (coincidence?). With the...

    I'm one of the anomalies here...I persuaded my husband to put down the original deposit 2 years ago (and wrote the check to move up to signature in December!)...I cannot wait for this car even thought it will be for his commute in the HOV lane from San Jose to Santa Clara and SF...I tried to get...

    With no $7,500 credit, could you still afford to buy?

    I COMPLETELY agree!! Cash out to us upon purchase is really $7500 more than what is stated...

    Thanks for that clarification! Love this idea :smile:

    Where will your Model S reside?

    Just posted our location on map and while looking around to see others in South Bay, saw someone else with my same production number about 15 miles away from me....P2222...Have reservation numbers been reallocated as people drop out?

    If you were not getting a Model S what would you get

    In July, we traded in my husband's Lexus LS 460 for a Lexus HS250h, which will hold him over until our Model S delivery in (hopefully) September 2012...I'm currently taxiing the kids in a Lincoln MKT and incurring 20k/year, and I plan to start driving the Lexus hybrid more next year to ease up...

    Yes...that was me...we were in Santana Row last weekend and the rep mentioned to us that December 13 was the day for the big reveal of the Model X...He didn't have any other information regarding deposits on it, but he was fairly confident that current Roadster owners/Model S reservation holders...
