    How many [lifetime] miles do you have?

    2018 M3 AWD 44,500 miles 70 highway/30 streets averaging 260 Wh/Mile Charging to 80/90 % at home and very little Supercharger 100% charge is 270 miles 270/310 is 13% loss :(

    Going on first road trip (around 285 miles one way).. New owner.. Just a few questions. Thanks

    When i travel long distances in my model 3, i charge to 100%, put in my final destination and Tesla will automatically route me to the SC and will automatically start to precondition the battery. Since in your trip it is the same, maybe do 90% to get better efficiency. I am in SoCal, so even if...

    Rear passenger window exploded.

    nice to hear. Never heard of this before happening.

    Built 8/2018 - Model 3 LR AWD - HV Battery issue or 12V issue?

    I got my car around the same time as you and got about the same miles. I already changed my 12V battery last year, but i got a warning about 12v battery explicitly. You chatting with Tesla implies they can't diagnose an issue remotely? Errors kind of point towards your HV battery not 12V, but i...

    Faulty High Voltage Battery - 2014 Model S 85 RWD, with Tech Package with Autopilot (AP1), 101k

    I did not read into details, just rules applied from 1990 to current. I guess i was under wrong assumption that "any" car that has a battery in California (EV, hybrid, plug-in hybrid) are warrantied to 150k miles or 10 years. Good luck

    Free Supercharging Model 3 Performance

    Yes, i agree. But what prevents Tesla saying no outside warranty? Since, at least for now, only Tesla can do this minus couple of shops here and there.

    Faulty High Voltage Battery - 2014 Model S 85 RWD, with Tech Package with Autopilot (AP1), 101k

    Just curious since you are in California, battery should be warrantied up to 150k miles https://www.kbb.com/car-advice/hybrid-ev-battery-warranty/ California goes even further, requiring a 10-year, 150,000-mile warranty on EV and hybrid batteries. Toyota has adopted that standard in all 50...

    Free Supercharging Model 3 Performance

    Some people would say is to keep this car until death and then some as it has free charging for the rest of the life of the car. One of my friends has it and will keep it until the end. My guess, speculation, once/if battery dies outside the warranty, Tesla will not fix it as they would not want...

    Powerwalls now available for direct order

    That is a lot money over $9,200. Batteries never really help with ROI, but will with NEM 3.0 here in California in couple of months. Very pricey to have peace of mind.

    Is it ok to get 1 new tire in back/passenger non-repairable flat (AWD model 3)

    I replaced my 3 tires one by one in my 2018 model 3 over a course of a year or so due to flats. I believe, its advisable to put tires with most thread in the rear. Otherwise no issues here. And yes, they are expensive. I take it to a local place, American Tires who repair flats for free and you...

    Seeking advise on possible used Model 3 purchase.

    seems like a solid buy for that price. check out what others are selling their Teslas here in the market place.

    For prospective EV buyers: "How much range will I actually get?"

    I got 2018 LR AWD, maybe i saw 300 miles once at 100%, but i rarely charge up to it. Now just like yourself, 100% charge is about 270 miles. The farthest I driven on one charge was about 236 miles one way with efficiency of 252Wh/mi and i got to the supercharge at 16 miles left over. This is the...

    Which SSD

    Yes, these are an excellent choice and have tons of space. and on "sale" now

    Confused between rear wheel vs long range

    not my money, but i love my Long Range AWD Model 3 with extra range, more power, and better handling. is $10k worth it? If you plant to keep the car for a long time, its worth it and if you drive often long distances.

    Cancelled my Tesla model 3 long range [July 2022]

    Good move, even better move would be to "sell" your reservations like many do who changes their mind assuming when you got it price was lower, but that train left. dont get yourself into debt

    Why choose Model 3 over Model Y if you can have more trunk space?

    If when i bought my model 3, model y was available i would likely picked model y for extra cargo space. unlike many here, i did not care for sportiness of model 3, just wanted affordable Tesla. model 3 is fine for majority of smaller trips where cargo space is needed, but not for bigger like...

    Car likely totaled

    my opinion is to go with the newest one, delta $ is a lot but since now you can wait, worth it. glad you are ok

    200 miles review: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4

    I am a bit confused with abbreviating tires. PS4 -MICHELINPILOT SPORT 4S or no S PSAS4 - PILOT SPORT ALL SEASON 4 CC2 - MICHELINCROSSCLIMATE2 It seems PSAS4 is a good choice for SoCal, not much efficiency lost, mileage warranty, not too much louder and great grip?

    Selling Model Y Reservation

    Wonder if waiting a year and paying $2,250 is questionable but better invested into the market to make up for future potential price increases.

    Price increase? [posted 06.16.2022]

    Too bad for future potential Tesla owner, this is a considerable price increase. Since this was not announced ahead of time like GMC Hummer EV, this is not a lever pushing but just the current circumstances.

    Very high mileage LRAWD vs. New SR+ vs Other

    I have 2018 LR AWD but only 30k miles. I would not recommend buying 100k EV for $40k, i dont think its a wise decision. Whatever you might be saving will go into repairs whatever those might be (suspension and other trivial items that will need a look at after 100k miles no matter what the car...

    Out of warranty repair price list?

    Model 3 are too new to know the cost beyond 5 years, but so far overall no major issues. I am planning to make appointment with Tesla to get car checked out before warranty expires (4 years). Downside is that Tesla is the only place so far to service the car and generally repair it

    Another Model 3 price increase? RWD up by $2K? [posted 03/14/22]

    So it seems, Tesla increases prices throughout whole lineup, its cheapest electric car now starts at $47,000 I suppose this was coming. I wonder if any reserved betting for it to go up and now we will see more reservations being sold in the market place here?

    PSA: Base M3LR price increases by $1K [03.10.2022]

    yep, thats happening across most products these days. so for those that are on the line, place your order.

    Is my car gonna be considered a total loss

    unlikely if nothing got trigged with the battery and if frame is ok. just 3-4 months of repair time maybe
  27. boriszima

    Worth buying an M3P at this point?

    If you going for Model Y, then you are very close at the new batteries as some are produced. But if you are going after model 3 and want new tech, there is unknown amount of wait time. I have model 3 and if i were to buy a Tesla now would definitely got for the Y as its a bit bigger and newer...

    Scary near crash with a big truck today. Disappointed that teslacam did not record the event 😕

    OP likely honks a lot and dont want that evidence to be saved ;) But yeah that sucks that Dashcam is not perfect

    Just reserved a M3 from Hertz

    Agree on this for sure! While LA is spread far apart, it is likely a city/county with most Tesla Chargers as absolute number of any major US City, I think there was an article by Electrek sometime ago about it. Anyways, it is nice to see some good experience with getting EV from rental places.

    2019 Model 3 Performance Sleeper for sale

    $58K is a better pick as that one is Performance with 20 inch wheels, bigger brakes and depending when bought extra $5k for the package. Good luck with sale, this car is very clean. new one now costs $71k, so for 62k is a nice discount.

    Model 3 LR Reservation|VIN Assigned|EDD Feb12-18

    Glad you got a deal. Did you lose out on $250? I assume Tesla does not like transfers like this?

    Buying a model 3 in 2022. Is it worth it?

    If you can afford it and its worth it to you. I think cars are too expensive due to the situation. if you can wait, perhaps wait until cars might come down in price or inflation kicks in and be more expensive. As far as value, they are still pretty good compared to other ICE cars and markups.

    Model 3 LR Reservation|VIN Assigned|EDD Feb12-18

    for item 2, you want $2k, and the car is $2k cheaper, so the Net amount will be the same for the buyer? Also can a buyer change color?

    Selling 2022 Model S LR reservation

    while i dont agree with selling reservations, but also if thread crapping is poor taste. If he can sell it for $15k great. If not, then buy the car and sell it for the same/similar profit. As others mentioned, likely thats what some are doing, buying reservations, buying cars and selling for...

    Model 3 Performance Accident

    like a boss. Now that you uploaded footage to youtube, you backed it up just in case. We are not going to talk about if the lady was too old, lying, should not been driving, etc. but she clearly ran a red light. Green came on and not like you gunned it. It is too bad you can will be worked on...

    New red CA HOV Decal last until January 1, 2022?

    likely by then, there will be so many EVs on the road, it wont matter. Maybe by then there will be new restrictions such as 3-4 people in ICE and 2 people in EV. I have not read to see if there is a roadmap.

    Repeater camera feeds are mostly useless when turn signal is on at night

    nice. I guess if it bothers one, and they mess up, it costs $$ to get it fixed. I know myself with power tool, i dont have surgical precision. will wait or not have turn signals on.

    Great Service from Tesla Service Center in Pomona, CA

    Glad you had a good service. I had to take my car in couple of times, and every time it was a great service, no one is trying to sell you oil changes, fluid flushes, etc. The issue is getting appointment timeframe. Where as before, i would just roll in or make appointment online for next day...

    Repeater camera feeds are mostly useless when turn signal is on at night

    good point. Seems something that could have been checked as this is not a trivial situation. For that have light bleed at night, is there a workaround? Other then asking Tesla to change those cameras? Maybe there are 3rd party add on that can be installed inside the mirror housing to make it...

    Repeater camera feeds are mostly useless when turn signal is on at night

    I read somewhere that newer model 3 have a bit different cover over those cameras and do not suffer from glares as some/most of the older ones. At night its a hassle

    M3 LR AWD tires in Washington all season ?

    19 inch might offer better "performance" traction and whatnot. I have AWS with 19 and i am not fan of the OEM tires. they do not last long enough and seem are prone to punctures, at least in my case. summer tires are better for warmer climates and rain, all season just like the name implies good...
