    So far so good MCU2 upgrade

    I am thinking to upgrade my MX 2017 MCU1 to MCU2. I think it costs around $3k+tax. I know that current Tesla's are using MCU3. Does anyone know if Tesla will ever offer a MUC1 to MCU3 upgrade?

    Phone as Key Issues

    Just took delivery of a Model 3 dual motor 10 days ago. Apart from this frustrating issue the car drives really well. I hope a key fob comes out soon.

    Building a new house soon. Is it worth having a underfloor heated garage?

    If we consider money in the bank then yes your right since savings interest rates are so low. However even in a low/moderate risk diversified investment you would average 5% return per annum on average across a 20 year period. So when you consider opportunity costs geothermal does not make sense...

    Building a new house soon. Is it worth having a underfloor heated garage?

    Actually my initial preferance was to have HVAC powered by geothermal. However geothermal is costing $80k ($40k in extra material and $40 for drilling the wells) more than the next best alternative. Based on the size of the house etc this worked out to a payback period of 20 years which does not...

    Building a new house soon. Is it worth having a underfloor heated garage?

    So living in Canada we get extreme winters with temperatures as low as -40 celcius so it takes a while for the battery to warm up and this of course uses more range. I am due to start construction of a new house and have the option to heat the garage using hydronic underfloor heating. Of course...

    Braking in rain

    I have an S70D and recently after driving for 2 hours in heavy rain my brakes failed to work twice within a period of 4mins after i got off the highway. Thank god the roads were empty. Tesla service checked the brakes and did not find anything abnormal. I am thinking due to regenerative braking...

    -25 celcius has eaten 66% of my range

    Yes, i think it is important for everyone to know the effect on range with such cold weather to help plan better

    -25 celcius has eaten 66% of my range

    Yes, on a long trip with highway driving it makes sense that you experienced a range loss of 35%. Due to stopping and starting i lost 65%.

    -25 celcius has eaten 66% of my range

    -25 celcius has eaten 66% of my range

    Model S 70D So it is -25 celcius (-35 with wind chill). I started out with a cold battery from my garage with 337km rated range. I drove local and highway during the day and the actual range was only 115km. This equates to a range loss of 66%. Driving style was generally slow acceleration due...

    WARNING: I rear-ended someone today while using Auto Pilot in my brand new P90D!

    Could you have swithed off autopilot without realising? The logs should be able to confirm this.

    First Impression with AP

    I had the same problem, the car jerked into the exit lane, it was scary and so now i am very careful when i approach any exits. Tesla needs to program the system to follow the left hand lane as a priority.

    Travelling Montreal to Manhattan / NYC

    So I arrived at the Albany supercharger with 8miles to spare. Overall a very relaxed journey with autopilot and auto steering. I left Brossard with a full charge showing 375km.

    Heat / HVAC on 7.0 - poor performance?

    I have the same issues. HVAC is not accurate at all. I will set to 24deg celcius and it only reaches 19 or 20dec celcius at best when on Auto mode. Previous to ver 7.0 these issues did not exist.

    Travelling Montreal to Manhattan / NYC

    Model S 70D. I am travelling from Brossard to Manhattan. Since I only have a total range of 385km it is a stretch to reach the Albany supercharger which is 345km from Brossard. So far i have travelling at an average speed of 60mph. So far so good. Will keep you posted.

    Tesla 4 year service plan - do we need it? Is it worth it?

    The price for an annual service. in Montreal is $650+tax($748). 4 yr prepaid is $500/yr tax in so its huge saving. I will therefore purchase the 4yr plan.
