    JD Power ranks Tesla last in Quality Control Study

    JD Power ranks Tesla last in Quality Control Study

    Tesla is just notoriously inconsistent across models, locations, people and time. The Model Y delivery experiences are absolutely atrocious. You'd think not having dealers would lead to higher quality and consistency.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    There's no way that car has ventilated seats. They stopped offering them in 2018. FYI, I sold that car at 78k to Carmax after getting no bites for a week at that price (mine included FSD too). The market on these is extremely soft. I've owned two of them, wouldn't buy another one FWIW.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    Looks like it is, yes. Pricing is awful though. New build at the same spec is $92k cash plus any state incentives. For pricing reference, I sold one of these used (albeit with 20" wheels) for just under $80k back in March.

    Model Y - the dirty dozen

    Abysmal. Tesla slumping in their chair. They can afford this complacency now but it isn't sustainable.

    Used model X cost savings vs future proofing

    Time is your friend. Sold my 2019 7 seat Raven X 100D FSD with <10k miles for ~80k. Outside of a windshield chip, it was in perfect condition. Had no takers for ~1 week when listed here, CL and AutoTrader pre-COVID, then dumped it at Carmax. In the same way that Model S values dropped with the...

    P3D- Putting the feelers out there

    Depends on your motivation... We just sold our P3D- but only because our kids are entering driving age -- it's too much car for them (and exposure to us). So we contemplated waiting a couple more months, but decided to pull the trigger based on: Your car will only be worth less in the future...

    More pain in the used car market: Used-Car Prices Cratered. Here’s What That Means for the Auto Universe. The Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index—a key benchmark for industry pricing—has declined about 11% compared with March and is down roughly 10% year over year. The last time the Index dropped...

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    Patience is your friend right now. I listed our Raven MX for $2k over the same offer as was provided by Carmax. No bites for 6 days. Dumped it at Carmax 2 days before they shut down. The other factor is many folks wrote off the Model Y when the pre-production model was presented — it was...

    Selling Tesla Model Y

    Are there metro areas where the Y isn’t available? We have been contacted several times by our showroom (Santa Barbara, CA) to let us know the car is in stock and can be delivered. Obviously not doing any major purchases until there’s more economic certainty in our household and beyond.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    The auctions are getting flooded with lease returns and other vehicles and there is simply no demand from buyers. While the Tesla market is relatively small, all boats rise and fall essentially together. Add in the fact that the Model Y will cannibalize sales from across the Tesla product line...

    Welcome Home

    Congrats!! Looks great. Now if you could only take it on a road trip… Hopefully very soon you will! Please, please… Don’t be like those in orange county that clog up the supercharging with their daily usage. Seriously the most abysmal region in the United States for supercharging (relative to...

    I just did a walk around on the car. It does have one small chip in the windshield, and a small flaw in the paint protection film on the lower front bumper. A couple of the wheels have some curb rash. unfortunately (actually, fortunately) it has been raining here for the last few days. I keep...

    Three of the wheels have curb rash and there are a couple other flaws as noted. Rather just disclose and list it for a fair price. If there are no takers by Saturday, I'll dump it at Carmax.

    Voice Commands in 2019.40.50

    The voice command issue that was created by 2019.40.50.1 in our Raven X was just fixed in 2019.40.50.5. The update arrived this evening and preliminary tests showed it worked flawlessly, including keyboard dictation. This was not the case before, when I had to repeat commands, yell, or it just...

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    Nice thought, but there’s no distinction in the VIN for 2019 P3D- vehicles- they just appear as AWD, not Performance to insurers. Performance cars will command a higher residual, they get Track mode, and have a higher top speed (provided the Stealth models have been programmed to reflect the...

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    underrated comment. The residual value difference alone is worth the Performance stealth premium.

    Supercharger - Oxnard, CA (EXPANDED Jun 2018, now 20 total)

    Highly recommend Ragamuffin coffee roasters a short walk from the SuC at this location. They roast their excellent beans there on site - doesn't get any better than that.

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.36.1 update released with 5% power increase

    With these tweaks, I expect we will see more volatility in range between owners - the hypermilers among us will definitely eke out more from the car. Not so sure about the rest.
