    Driver door "Thumps" like lock/unlock actuator or maybe door handle

    Hi all - In the past two days, I've started noticing loud banging THUMP sounds from the driver's side door. S90D, Mid-2017 build. It has happened: In my garage, at a stop At a supercharger, while plugged in and I was in the car, about 1-3 minutes after I re-entered the car While backing into...

    Why I sold my 1-month old Tesla Model S.

    Wow. What a thread. I've read every single post, because I can actually understand what the OP is saying. I'm doing the same calculation right now, and to be free of the fear I've made a huge mistake - absolutely that's worth 10-15% of the car's value. Go look up Sunk Cost Fallacy. If for him...

    What's the record for longest service/loaner period?

    You know, it's actually kindof comforting to read this whole nightmarish thread. I'm sorry for what you went through, @tinm, obviously, but it's validating to see I'm not the only one with a horriffic experience. Mine was delivery of my "new" (fleet) 2017 S90D - there was junk in the car, it...

    Water under car, overnight in garage

    LOL @Ormond - it's not just Elon, I bet. :) Thanks all - I'll turn off preconditioning. (Other things I've read hint that it may not be all that helpful anyway.) It wasn't charging, hadn't rained, and I didn't wash it, so it's gotta be the battery HVAC. I'll chalk 'em up to normal and ignore them.

    @redy: Ah - yeah, I was wondering about that - if I got it started, would it finish the job. I'll try that tonight. @boaterva: Doh. I missed that (obviously). Thanks for the pointer. Yes, I did try rebooting this morning - and now double-press park brings up the autopark dialog. Thanks for that...

    Water under car, overnight in garage

    Last night I had the car in our garage for the first time, and this morning there was a puddle under the front right quadrant - maybe under where the passenger's feet would be. I'm chalking it up to condensation from the air conditioner - but why the heck is it on? I do have smart precondition...

    I've finally cleared out the garage enough to try autopark and summon. Got homelink set up - great! But the car won't park itself in the garage. The driveway is on a slope, up to the garage - I've seen reference to that confusing the sensors, like it can't see the ground in front of it, maybe...

    App won't connect to car

    Hi all - Fairly new MS owner here... Often when I use the (iOS) app to control the car, it says it's not connected. It's especially bad at home, which is odd, since both app and car should have access to house wifi (I have a range extender right above the garage/driveway, so should get great...

    Did you name your Model S, and if so, what?

    I was driving my plug-in Prius to the Palo Alto store to put in my order for a 90D. If you're in the Bay Area, you know that Priuses (Prii?) are EVERYwhere - but in Palo Alto, it's the Teslas that are everyfreakingwhere. Our Prius (wife's car) is called "Pip" for "Plug In Prius". My MS is now...
