    Keep getting flat tires

    Update: The tire shop said both tires had non repairable gashes. Not malicious. Most likely I drove over something protruding out/up. There was a mini thunder storm the other night with heavy winds. That was the last time I drove. Maybe I went over some fallen branches/debris. Although I don’t...

    Keep getting flat tires

    Got my MS in April. Since then have had 4 flat tires. 2 on the right side from last night. The first flat was a nail. The second was a razor blade. The 2 from last night not sure about yet. I’m sitting at “Just Tires” right now waiting for the diagnosis. Just a silly question. Anything about...

    Automatic trunk latch does not always work

    Just got brand new 2020 MS. The button on the inside of the trunk door brings the trunk door all the way down, but then it hesitates and aborts the closure operation. It does work sometimes, but when it does not work it seems to be random and without any obvious obstructions in the way. Are...

    New Tesla MS Regen Limited

    Im sure that works, but I cannot pre-condition every time I go on a drive. I really just want the car to behave as my previous MS did. Maybe giving us the option to select the minimum battery temp for regen?

    New Tesla MS Regen Limited

    Thanks. Longevity is less important to me as I am leasing for 3 years. So this is a bummer to hear.

    New Tesla MS Regen Limited

    Just got a brand new 2020 MS (long range). Regen has been limited almost all the time with the dashed yellow line on the bottom of the power graph circle. I talked to Tesla service a few times and even brought it over to the SC. We did a supercharge over there for ~15 mins and after that the...

    New MS Lease Insurance Sticker Shock

    My current 2016 MS lease is about to end and I'm starting a new MS 2020 lease next week. Called my insurance (Allstate) to get coverage for the new VIN and they are raising my premium from $2576/yr to $3900/yr! I believe my agent said it was because of the collision portion. Wasn't expecting...

    How to view XM Channel list in 8.0

    Yes, its very frustrating and perplexing. Especially since this was fixed a while back and appears to be back now. While I love Slacker, I also use XM a lot (premium news, sports, music channels..). My next move is to contact Tesla support. Not very optimistic though.

    How to view XM Channel list in 8.0

    This is an older thread now, but I haven't had the XM Radio Station list or browse capability in a while. 2016 Model-S (with latest OS presumably). It might have gone away when they did that major OS change (to be like Model-3)? So I can only access channels by putting exact number in "directly"...

    Triple App Screen on v9!

    Couldn't agree more. Flabbergasted by this v9 release.Such a major UI overhaul. Why? Occasional updates and feature "enhancements" are OK. This crosses the line though (IMHO). I thought the previous UI was slick looking and functional. I don't feel the same about V9. The bolded fonts, for...

    Jet engine LOUD fan in hot weather. Really?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this today and it appears to help. I still am a little perplexed though that this is considered normal. It’s not a normal sound and it’s very disturbing while driving. The car just feels bogged down. It’s not something I have to deal with often as we rarely...

    Jet engine LOUD fan in hot weather. Really?

    No. Nothing to do with charging. Just driving the car on a hot summer day.

    Jet engine LOUD fan in hot weather. Really?

    So we don’t get very many extreme heat days in Chicago (90s and above), but when it is hot (like this weekend), my MS sounds like a jet engine when AC in use. And AC is a must. I stopped by my local SC, and they said it was “normal”. I have a hard time believing this though. How do people in...

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    Sorry you are having the same problem. For what its worth after they replaced the DU in that initial period the error never resurfaced (knock on wood). I have around 8000 miles and about 8.5 months of ownership. Nonetheless this is not an acceptable experience/issue for a brand new car. I hope...

    Icy Road Accident Possibly Caused By Regen

    Thanks for your feedback. Agree 100% on the conditions of the day. I believe you captured it accurately. Just to be clear, I am not trying to slam Tesla or EVs. I love my Tesla and owned a LEAF for 5 years beforehand. At the same time though, trying to better understand the cars behavior or...

    Icy Road Accident Possibly Caused By Regen

    Thanks for all your suggestions. All make a lot of sense. This happened very fast. There is not much time to digest, analyze, react.. It is not clear to me whether this accident was avoidable and whether Regen had a role (thus my post). What I do know though is that Regen (triggered by letting...

    Icy Road Accident Possibly Caused By Regen

    Thanks for the tips. I will certainly turn regen to LOW next time conditions are icy (just in case). I don't know if regen contributed to my incident or not. I said that in my original post. I do want to become more educated though and try and prevent future incidents if any settings or...

    Icy Road Accident Possibly Caused By Regen

    On Friday I had my first accident with my MS. Icy conditions in Chicagoland. Was driving around 15-20mph behind a car that came to a stop at a stop sign. When I took my foot off the accelerator to slow down, I believe the regen kicked in and may have caused the vehicle to slide (instead of...

    Energy Graph Warning

    Some good suggestions and your point about not normally keeping the power meter in the instrument cluster is VERY relevant. This is my use case which is why my initial instincts were that something is "wrong". Not ideal user experience IMHO.

    Upgrading from LEAF to Tesla

    This is an old thread that I started back in 2014, but here I am to "report back" :) I finally pulled the trigger on the MS 75D back in April and traded in my LEAF after 5 years of ownership. So it's been 7 months with the MS. Overall I am very impressed and pleased with the car despite...

    Energy Graph Warning

    UPDATE: Its now November and it's been fairly cold all month (40s and high 30s). As suspected, I pretty much now get this every I time I start the car. It goes away immediately and I ignore it, but definitely feels odd.

    Loaners now speed limited?

    I just found out today that my car was speed limited. Purchased 7 months ago. Inventory car, but with virtually no miles. They removed it over the air. The strange thing is that I thought I drove around ~90 on a couple instances during recent road trips and the limit is supposed to be 85.

    How to view XM Channel list in 8.0

    I must say I am pretty disappointed that this issue has not been addressed yet. I am a developer and this should be a relatively easy thing to fix. I have contacted my SC a few times and tried to escalate via the Tesla website as well. SC does not know anything and received no reply to my...

    I tried 1 & 2. Did not try #3 (remove and then re-link). Behavior is still intermittent.

    Collision warning no longer beeps?

    Ok, looks like the "park assist chimes" were set to "off" (under settings/safety&security/active safety). I don't remember doing this though. Maybe the wife. Or maybe one of the updates turned them off. Anyway, thanks for your comment/tip

    Collision warning no longer beeps?

    Collision warning beeps use to sound when I pulled in/out of my garage. About 1-2 weeks ago the beeps went away. I still have a visual indicator and approximate distance/feet from the edges, but no more audible beeps? Did something change?

    Energy Graph Warning

    Thanks for all the replies on this. A couple of followups: 1) I am in Chicago area (cold). Just got my car 4 months ago (warmer weather so far). Am I to expect this warning/graph to pop up every time I start my car when weather shifts to colder seasons? 2) If the answer to 1 is yes, is there...

    Energy Graph Warning

    The energy graph comes up at random times with a yellow triangle warning exclamation mark on bottom right corner (snapshot below). It pops up after being in park mode and disappears after ~5-20 seconds. It seems like it only happens when temperature outside is a little cooler or when I charge to...

    Yep, still not fixed on my MS either. Had it for 4 months. Clearly not a priority for them.

    Homelink intermittent

    I have had my MS for 4 months now. For the past few weeks Homelink only works intermittently. Meaning that it does not always open the garage door on the 1st try. I have to press repeatedly and it will eventually open. This use to work flawlessly. Anybody aware of recent software changes that...

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    It's been 4 months now since I took delivery (and replacement of the DU). The issue has not resurfaced since.

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    Update on original issue: 11 days have elapsed since getting my rear DU replaced. The notification has NOT resurfaced. So it looks like that indeed solved it. I have been enjoying this car a lot and am very happy (despite a rocky start).

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    That's great. You also got to put those 600-700 miles on the loaner. Although it would have been nice to see how your new car would take the trip. Does Tesla have a SC in Jackson? I received good service too. Now lets hope the cars hold up :)

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    Hmmm. That's not pleasant to hear at all. Sorry about your situation. At this point I don't know what to expect as there are people who apparently have no issues at all and others with nothing but. Time will ultimately tell.

    Glad you have it back. I have had mine back 4 days now. Put around 150 miles on it. So far (knock on wood) no more warnings.

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    @uuette Yes, your picture is the same notification I am getting. However, my understanding is that this "car needs service" notification can mean many different things. Presumably there is another code that shows up in the logs right before the error occurs. That code tells them where to start...

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    Update: Yesterday I got same warning/notification again 3 times in a span of an hour. Wasn't surprised as I suspected that chalking it up as a "glitch" was inadequate. Took back to Tesla. Got another loaner. Just got a call this afternoon asking if they could drive it 75 miles to further...

    How to view XM Channel list in 8.0

    I had to take the car in for an unrelated "Car needs service power reduced" warning that came up. I also asked them to look at the XM interface issue. The official response in their report: "There is a current firmware issue that prevents XM categories to not appear. This will be fixed in a...

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    UPDATE: Tesla had the car for the day. They said they couldn't find anything wrong (although they did see the warnings in the logs). Something led them to look at the "accelerator pedal circuit" though (see below). Presumably a code that was linked to the warning in the logs. From their...

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    I just hope this does not become a regular occurrence. Do other owners find themselves having to bring the car in a lot?

    car needs service power reduced (newbie)

    Just took delivery of my new MS 75d 2 days ago. This morning after pulling out of garage, I got the "car needs service power reduced" notification/warning. Pulled over to the side of the road. Tried to call Tesla (both local service and roadside). Roadside never picked up and local service...
