    what maintenance is needed or what problem to look for when reaching 4 years (50,000 miles) mileage ?

    I did a break fluid flush at Tesla, though they claimed its not needed - fluid is hygroscopic no matter what make the car is.

    New FSD beta testers (June 2022) - First experiences

    When the speed limits change on the road, very slow to react - speed changed from 65 to 45 and 35 over he cause of say 1/4 mile and it does recognize (as it displays the left panel) but the actual speed does not change - have to break or take it off autopilot to slow down. This behavior is...

    Starting to feel like Cybertruck is going the way of the Roadster: Vaporware

    This is a Cybertruck forum, but on a recent 2800 mile round trip, total charging cost was $244 (model3LR). At over $6.50 for super unleaded in CA, 40 gallons will do 1200 miles @30mpg.

    Strange loud whirring fan noise from grill in the front

    Fan noise like a high pitched whine is normal. But a loud or grating sound is not. I had an unusual sound, took it to service and they charges $175 to diagnose the sound and another 200 or so to remove rocks or pebble from the fan blades!

    8.1 kW system daily production?

    Hi all, My 8.1 panels system is up and running since May but I never saw more than 7 kW at peak and mostly 6.7-6.5 or so on a bright sunny day, not counting cloudy days or smoke (average daily total 45- 52 kWh). Is this an acceptable number or not. I placed a service request and Tesla claims...

    How to charge powerwalls from grid with solar

    Hi all, I am new to solar, having gotten a new install last week- 8 kW with one PW. The panels are not turned on. However, when the team installed, the Power-wall got charged to 100% from the grid and last 2 days, it’s used up about 45% for peak time flow to the house. The “ storm watch” icon...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    I installed the new update yesterday and driving back on I-80 near Sacramento late afternoon on a straight road in the right lane, the autopilot kicked me out repeatedly as the sun was in my face. I was able to re-engage the AP after a slight turn and the sun was off a bit. This has not happened...

    "USB too slow for dash cam" error message

    This has been happening lately with my 128 GB 300 MB / sec drive, that was working fine before. I unplug and reattach and the error clears for few days. Looks like a software bug.

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    My range has dropped to 293 at full charge last few weeks, no change in my driving habits. Looks like they capped it so when the battery does degrade in 3-4 years, it will still show may be 290 at full and you feel good that it is stable!

    Owners service experience

    I have over 25k miles in a little over a year with very few complaints, but service is a serious problem with Tesla. I hope they will improve over time, but so far appears to get worse than better at least in Bay Area. They find an excuse not to cover a service and want to be paid just to...

    Powder Coating Aero Wheels - Any Cap Issues?

    The shop that did my powder coating said that the job he did is "thicker/harder " than the OEM, plus the OEM coat is covering only the face of the wheel. I asked him about putting on and off the aero cover - said shouldn't be an issue. So far I noticed very little if any drop off both local and...
