    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    I really hope the NHTSA makes Tesla fix this. It's so difficult to get Tesla to fix this issue. We brought it in last month and they said it wasn't the emmc, even though it matches everything I've seen online for emmc being the main culprit. They said all they need to do is clear some files...

    MX17 - FalconWing Door weather stripping deteriorating - Not covered by Warranty

    I’m having the same issue with the rubber strips on the fwd. Haven’t seen any I’ll effects from it. I had the exact same issue with our 2004 BMW X5. The rubber strip between the windshield and the roof deteriorated the same way. It was a known issue that BMW never covered under warranty.

    Family man finding the S a little too tight. Is the X significantly better with kids?

    Sold our S for the X when we had kids. It's way better. Those FWDs which I thought was a gimmick is a life saver, especially for your back and your kids heads. The fact that the roof opens with the door makes it the easiest car to get kids in and out of with car seats. It's worth the change

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    I initially thought it was a joke and that the outside was just cheap panels that would be removed to show the real truck. Everyone's opinion is different, but that thing is probably the ugliest car I've ever seen. Was planning on buying it, but I don't think I can unless I somehow go blind...

    Falcon wing window seals

    Having exact same issue with my wife's MX. The seal on the top of the FWD is all deteriorated like in the pic above. Car is roughly 2 years old

    Dead 12 Volt battery rant

    Ok, sorry about the rant but I just have to vent. This is the first time I've ever been stranded and have needed a rescue person to come save me, all over a dead 12 volt battery on a 2.5 year car. I've owned or currently own all Tesla models so I'm a huge fan. But lately, the changes Tesla...

    yellow border - need advise

    I’m not sure where you’re getting your info, but they just told me some BS about a firmware update to fix my screen and that they’ve been told to stop all replacement.

    yellow border - need advise

    I know that. That’s why I told the technician that it doesn’t make any sense. He said there’s nothing he can do since they’ve been told to stop all replacements.

    Driver side door wont open

    Just started having this issue in our X on the passenger door. You hear the motor but the door won't open. Screen shows door open but it's not. You can only open by pulling the handle on the inside.

    yellow border - need advise

    I had an appointment a few days ago after getting a text saying the screen was in. 30 minutes prior to the appointment they called and said they’re canceling the appointment because Tesla engineers have told them not to replace anymore screens and that they’re working on a firmware to fix it. I...

    Seat doesn't auto adjust based off key fob anymore

    Mine is inconsistent. It’ll set my profile when my wife uses her FOB. Other times it doesn’t. Drives my wife nuts

    Cabin Overheat Protection OR Security Alarm, not Both

    Just noticed this yesterday. We have the enhanced security installed so I figured the cabin overheat protection wasn't needed since the interior sensor senses even the tiniest movement. A tiny fly inside kept setting it off.

    Another Summon Failure! Do Not Rely on Quick STOP!

    On our previous S, I never had an issue with summon. Sometimes it’d have problem going over the lip of the garage, but otherwise it worked well With our current X, I’ve had to intervene a few times to prevent it from hitting my 3. For some reason, every once in awhile, it would make a hard...

    TeslaCam errors

    same issue with both my X and 3. works for about a week then it both craps out. I just reformat and start over again and it works, till it doesn't again.

    Ever Hit Anything On Auto-Park? Summon?

    It happens rarely, out of the hundreds of times I've summoned, it's happened about a half dozen times. We also do it the same. Position the car in the same spot before summoning into the garage. There's never any issues summoning out of the garage. What concerns me more, is that the X...

    I booked them for our December cruise. Always willing to support a business that supports EVs, especially Teslas.

    Ever Hit Anything On Auto-Park? Summon?

    I use summon all the time, it's fantastic when you have young children and a tight garage. The only issue I've had was sometimes it wouldn't go over the lip into the garage. It would work most of the time. But recently, I've had issues where if we didn't intervene, the X would have hit our...

    Yellow ring around Main Display?

    Got this on our X. Dec 17 build. I haven't gone to have it replaced yet, figured I'd wait till I have the car serviced or till something else inevitably needs fixing.

    Who still doesnt have Summon?

    Just got the update to 26.3 from 21.9 yesterday. It happened shortly after I visited a service center to repair the driver seat base. I asked them to update the firmware while it was in for repairs but when I got it back I noticed it was 21.9. Later that afternoon though, I got the update...

    Model 3 Center Console Wrap

    Just finished with the CF wrap. Wow, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Think the fact that the CF material is thicker, it made it a lot easier to handle. Took me less than 30 minutes and that was with me taking my time to perfect it. One thing I didn't do that he did on the...

    San Antonio Service Center

    Every time I've gone to the service center, all the HPWC spots were taken up with service center cars. I bet you probably can ask the service center to move one if you're in need.

    Getting seatbelt warning with child seat

    I ended up just buckling the seat with the seat belt. Squeezed it in between the car seat and seat itself.

    PSA: CAREFUL--Autopilot sudden braking

    I've had it happen with my 3 then now even my X. Slammed on the brakes for absolutely no reason. Thank goodness no one was right behind.

    XPEL Prime XR?

    I had Pinnacle Formula 1 on my Bmw M3 and Photosync on our Model S. We opted to try the Xpel XR Black on the Model 3 since the price was way cheaper than other tints and they did the rear window with one single film for no extra cost. I thought it came out great. Looks great and I can feel it...

    Best insurance for Tesla Model S 2018

    I have USAA. I pay over 2100 every 6 months for our Model X and Model 3. I just priced progressive and they’re quoting me 1000 for 6 months. I love USAA and have been a member for 22 years. They use to be far and away the cheapest auto insurance around. I love their service but I don’t think I...

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    The fact that you have to really slam the trunk to get it to close.

    Swiping wiper settings in 2018.4.9

    This is so funny, I just did it 3 times in a row trying to find how to unlock my trunk so they can take my bags at the car park.

    Texas Hold Up!

    Using the LATCH on rear passenger side seat. That's also the seat I'm getting the warning about. Kind of annoying but not too difficult to deal with.

    Getting seatbelt warning with child seat

    Just amazed that the base itself would cause the warning since it weights only a few pounds.

    Getting seatbelt warning with child seat

    I keep getting a seatbelt warning when I install our car seat using the LATCH system. It's not really even the weight, since just installing the base of our Chicco Keyfit, without the car seat itself, gives me a warning. I have the seat secure, no movement laterally of more than an inch, so...

    Texas Hold Up!

    Finally picked up my Model 3 this past Tuesday. It looks better than even in pics. Haven't had much time in it but it's so far pretty good. Just had Xpel PPF and tint installed. It's been a few days but I've had some minor issues with the car. 1. Can't get the neighborhood main gate opener...

    Model 3 Tinting in SATX

    Just had the Xpel San Antonio guys finish installing tint and PPF. They did a great job. I wasn't sure of their tint since there weren't many reviews on it, but I thought it looked great. Seems to do a great job keeping out the heat. I was really concerned about whether they can do the rear...

    Model 3 Tinting in SATX

    Model 3 Tinting in SATX

    I never got a reply. I've asked for a quote from another installer of photo sync, and they haven't replied either after a week. I guess they don't need any business. I decided i'm going to have Xpel do PPF and their tint. They quoted me $360ish or so for the tint if I did it with the PPF. I...

    Texas Hold Up!

    Finally getting my Model 3. Set for next Tuesday. Total time from ordering to delivery, 8 weeks 3 days. Original tesla estimate was 4 week delivery. Got to say, I’ve lost a lot of enthusiasm for the car. I’m sure it’ll come back when I pick it up, but Tesla just leaving me hanging really kind...

    Garage door railing protection against falcon wing door

    We just had our FWD painted after it hit the connector rod in the garage. But of course the FWD worked perfectly. Was user error from wife because for some reason, she decided to close the garage door with the FWD open.

    Model 3 Tinting in SATX

    Anyone in SATX have any recommendations to tint their Model 3s? I know the rear window is a little difficult because of the size. I'm not sure if there's any installers here that can do it.

    Texas Hold Up!

    We had the same feeling. I think red looks great in the showroom, but we had a red Model X loaner and felt it looked dull outside. Could have been cause it was a cloudy day though. We had a Blue Model S and loved it. Looked fantastic in the showroom and outside when it was sunny and the car...
