    What do you do if your Tesla is stolen?

    Is there some sort of a checklist? Someone had a checklist for accepting a new Tesla and I thought it might be useful to think about how to handle a theft in the same way. I use my phone as my key and more than once I've thought about someone grabbing my phone (say, at the gym) and driving...

    service center charging

    How much does it cost to charge at a Service Center? I'm thinking of renting a MX through Toro for vacation and there is a SC near the dropoff point. I was wondering if I could roll into the SC, charge for a bit, and then hand the car back to the owner. If SC doesn't charge for Supercharger...

    Is it possible to re-text the most recent contact?

    I love texting in my MY but creating repeated messages to the same person is a bit tedious. Answering incoming texts is fine, but sending multiple texts to the same person is a multi-step process. As an example, I'll text my wife about supper on the way home from work. When she doesn't...

    What do you do with your loose change?

    I try to use my phone or debit card whenever I can but sometimes it's just easier to pay with cash. The problem is that there is no good place to store change in my MY. I don't want to just throw it in the console; it's hard to find and it rolls around/rattles. Other cars usually have some...

    Has everyone's streaming audio been spotty lately or is it just me?

    One of the most loved features of my MY is the streaming audio. I love being able to think about a song and then request it! Lately (the past couple of weeks) I've been getting a lot of pauses and failure to play a song. With the latest firmware upgrade it's even starting to skip to the next...

    2020.48.10 SMS gray on gray text is hard to read

    Is anyone else having trouble reading the gray text on slightly lighter grey background when you get an SMS message? I really like the new conversation format that mirrors most "text" applications (your messages on the right and other's responses on the right). The white text on dark blue text...

    Backup Camera Lens

    I love my MY but with the recent change in weather the backup camera lens seems to get dirty/smudgy/foggy easily. I've tried wiping it off, and it does help, but it seems to get "yucky" again pretty quickly. Is there some coating or lens cleaner that you might recommend? Would a ceramic...

    Driverless Car Wash

    My mother is a big car wash person and knows the people at the local wash by name. We used to take my Honda Odyssey through and they did an excellent job. Lots of hand drying, vacuuming, washing the floor mats, etc. The only issue is that you don't ride in the car. In fact, you drive up and...

    What do you do if you record an accident on the dashcam?

    Recently, a motorcycle passed me on the highway and ended up hitting an SUV in front of me. The motorcycle basically disintegrated and the rider was flipped into the air and landed without moving. It was actually a horrific sight and I've thought about it quite a bit recently. I saved the...

    Headlight Bulb Replacement

    I was looking at my headlights the other day and wondered if/how you replace the "bulb", or even if it has one that can be replaced. What happens if a headlight goes out? Do you have to replace the whole housing?

    How many key cards come in the replacement order?

    I've lost a key card and want to replace it. So, I went to the Tesla store and ordered a new Key Card for $25 but I don't know if it comes with one card or two. All the pictures show two cards but the description only talks about a single card. Thanx! Richard

    Can we automatically decrease radio volume in the morning?

    I really love my new MY but every time I get in the car the radio is set to the last volume level (read LOUD!) and it can be extremely jarring. Especially in the morning after I've been listening to SOAD or Tool the evening before. :D What would you say to having a setting that reduces the...

    Is it normal for vehicles to jump around on the traffic display?

    I understand that there should probably be some movement of the gray vehicles on the display, but mine jump around quite a bit and I'm wondering if that is normal. On the drive home, my kids and I joked that large trucks (tractor trailers) seem to dance around in their lane quite a bit. Even...

    So, I got an old Model S as a loaner ...

    ... and boy do I miss my MY! The MS feels like something Mercedes or BMW would build; large, heavy, and full of all kinds of buttons and levers. By comparison, the MY feels like a rocket ship from the future. That "single pane of glass" works really well once you get used to it. At one point...

    Slow speed tire noise (sticky sounds)

    So, my MY is the first non-ICE vehicle I've ever had and it's so quiet that I'm hearing a "sticky" sound coming from the tires when I back out of my driveway. It almost sounds like there are stickers or tape on my tires that is sticking to my driveway. I'm almost positive it's just the...

    I took delievery of a new MY today!

    I'm so excited to get my first Tesla. I've been wanting one for years (and years) and was finally able to make it happen. My son and I went over (almost) everything and apart from some minor scratches / paint issues, it was great. We drove it home (2 hrs) without any squeaks or groans or...
