    Insurance Agent Email!

    I have Liberty and its the same situation where you have no actual agent. I just used a general customer service email and insurance was not an issue during delivery.

    Screen Yellowed, Again?

    I was told that they will do the treatment once. Tesla does not consider the yellow border to be a defect or problem with operation, but considers it a cosmetic issue. It is definitely worth asking them I would think.

    DIY UV Treatment for Yellowed MCU Screen

    I have had the screen in my 2018 model S replaced for the yellow border. The new screen turned yellow as well. I took it to the service center to have them do the UV treatment on the new screen and it worked for a while. I think it has been about a year now and the yellow border is coming back...

    FSD Upgrade Option Gone

    I was looking at my tesla account using my computer, not the app on my phone, and noticed that there is a subscribe button in the upgrades section. When you click on it all you get is a message to "Check back for future updates". Perhaps they are preparing the FSD subscription feature?

    Need help with buying decision

    I agree with the above. We are considering another Tesla and I have been leaving the FSD option off and opting for bigger battery. When we bought our model S I only ordered the 75 because I thought it was enough range. Two years and ten percent degradation later I am really wishing we went with...

    100k miles in a facelift Model S

    Nevermind! I found the other thread you started with the DIY UV. :)

    Summon in empty parking lot

    I mapped the parking lot at work some time ago. Weeks later I tried smart summon late in the evening after most people went home. The car appeared to be following the parking lanes even though most stalls were empty. Despite the easy conditions it still failed twice and refused to finish coming...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I have a May 2018 S75D with about 34,000 miles on it. My current battery capacity is about the same as yours as measured on CAN bus and by calculation. We verified that the battery is not capped and is charging to 4.2 V. I have found other threads where many other owners report similar rated...

    100k miles in a facelift Model S

    Great to hear your story! I am curious about your home solution to the yellow screen. Is there another thread on the forum that details how that is done? And my headlight also has a burned out DRL. Still need to take it in....

    Good time to lease a Model X?

    I certainly did get screwed and am underwater a fair amount, despite placing a hefty down payment. A new model S now has more range and features than my car for less money. Sucks for us, but I am very happy to see the cost of the vehicles becoming more affordable for everyone.

    Low Charge Speeds and Poor Maintenance

    That site is very popular and in constant use. On multiple occasions I have seen them out of service due to people running over them etc. I have not seen 5 of them out though!

    Lost Voice Command with 50.5 Update

    I had a similar issue with voice commands when I updated to 50.1. I had to stop the dash cam and remove the USB then do a reboot. I also realized that the behavior of the voice input button has changed. It used to be that you had to press the button a second time when you were done speaking...

    I have not measured it, but will know soon. At least I am not also suffering from slow charging speed. Well, not yet anyway.

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Thanks Ferrycraigs. If that is true then my 2018 model S is in bad shape as well. We have about 32,000 miles on it and max rated range at 100% is only 233 miles, which was 259 when it was new. Energy capacity method confirms ten percent loss if the buffer is included in the range prediction. I...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    I agree with your assessment. My 1.5 year old 75D has nearly 10% degradation if I follow the instructions as listed. If I add 4 kWh back for the buffer I have only lost about 3%. I have been unwilling to drive past 0 miles to test out the theory!

    Payback California rebate before 30 months of ownership?

    My first volt was re-purchased by GM. When I got my replacement I reached out twice to get the rebate transferred to the new vehicle or figure out what I needed to do. I got no response. To be safe I did not apply for a rebate on the new vehicle in case the state ever decided to come after me...

    Middle East oil/Rednecks

    I have used this exact argument! I was astounded when the reply I received was that if we start driving electric and oil demand goes down, then there is more cheap oil for bad countries to purchase and use against us. Sometimes you just can't win.

    Vacation homes with chargers

    I wish the rental websites would incorporate this as a filter option. We resort to looking in the descriptions for notes and if we find a place we really like we message the owners and ask. Although that has backfired since the owner said they had an RV plug, which of course was not a 14-50...

    Supercharger - Menifee, CA (LIVE 30 Sep 2019, 20 V2 stalls)

    I went by there last week and indeed the parking lot was a mess. ICE vehicles were utilizing the future supercharger spots due to the lack of space.

    Insurance rate increased. Anyone else?

    My rates went up just over 700 dollars per year when we got our model s. Vehicle was double the value of our 3 series BMW it replaced so it seemed to make sense. When my policy renewed Liberty Mutual increased our rates another 10 percent. Our homeowners renewal came and they increased that over...

    No cameras functioning

    I had an issue with AP in the past with my model S and the only thing that fixed it was doing a shutdown from the main screen. I don't know why a reboot didn't work and the shutdown did. If the model 3 has a similar option to shut down the car you may try that. After selecting shutdown wait...

    Congrats on the first purchase! I definitely plan to take your approach. I actually bought a bit of digital currency following the same philosophy and have been having fun watching the value change over the years.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Thanks for your always helpful write up Papafox! Does anyone have any pointers on where to go to get started investing? This is the second time I have missed great opportunities to buy Tesla and as a noob I would appreciate any tips.

    Supercharger - Menifee, CA (LIVE 30 Sep 2019, 20 V2 stalls)

    Went by this shopping center for lunch today and the station is under construction! It will be at the southwest corner of the Target parking lot. I was driving by in busy lunch traffic so I did not get a picture, but will try to take one later. BTW, this is my first TMC post after lurking for...
