    Tow hitch install problems

    I purchased a Curt Class 3 trailer hitch for my 2018 Model 3 from etrailer.com. While waiting for the hitch to be delivered I downloaded Curt's installation instructions from the etrailer website. The job seemed simple enough and required just a few hand tools (not even close), including a...

    Long-term charging/storage

    I'm going to be away from home and my Model 3 will sit in the garage unused for about six weeks. My question is whether I should leave it plugged into the Tesla wall charger in my garage or let vampire drain do its thing and then charge it up when I get home. I'm concerned that if I don't leave...

    "Phone still in car" alert

    Does anyone know of a way the 3's software can be set up to warn you when you forget your phone in the car. I do that too often and it scares me to think that I will someday find my car missing for just that reason.

    Swap your Model 3 wood dash for my white one.

    The view from one week in.

    I placed my order for a Model 3 Dual Motor Long Range in Midnight Silver with white interior and both software packages on 3/4/19. The Charlotte showroom called to say they found my car just three days later and I picked it up the following day, 3/8/19. I felt so fortunate after hearing so many...

    Newbie confusion

    After doing a ton of research over several months, I took the plunge and ordered a Model 3 today. It's been hectic since a lot of the info on the web was posted before the price and purchasing changes went into effect four days ago (3/1/19). No matter. I'm glad for the lower pricing and looking...
