I can't find any reliable numbers but I doubt the median is substantially different than the mean in this case. 500k sounds like "a lot" until you consider that 17+ million cars are sold in the US every year.
Again, this just isn't true.
With the tax credit a Chevy Bolt can be had for under...
It’s often FAR less expensive to lease a German luxury car for 3 years than it is to purchase it, because they’ve built an entire business model around leases with artificially inflated residual values.
Step 1: Write a lease with an unrealistically high residual value, which lowers the monthly...
Short trips in the cold are basically the worst case for efficiency. Its the same in ICE cars, you’ve just never bothered to notice.
There are countless studies that all show EVs are far more sustainable and produce far fewer emissions over their lifetime, even with the dirtiest grids. That...
But almost anyone buying a new car in the US can. The average new car transaction price in the US was $48,000 in September.
A new Model 3 can be had for under $30k. Even a new Model Y can easily be had for well under the average.
“They’re too expensive” is just not a particularly valid...
The modules I was referencing enable existing functionality already programmed in but disabled in our region.
To my knowledge there's no software present on Tesla cars at all yet to enable this functionality, in any region, so there's no hack to enabling it.
There was never any way to take this cosplay “truck” seriously, no matter the completely made up specs. This is a Bro Dozer toy for Silicon Valley nerds and always will be - just like Lord Elon himself. Nobody is buying this thing for real work… just a super-odd way to flex while towing your...
Email [email protected] explaining your situation, damages, and what you expect as a remedy.
They will probably ignore you.
After that your next step is most likely small claims court if you want compensation.
It’s been safe to assume that for over 6 months.
Inventory discounts are to drive sales. They keep certain configs in certain regions at certain discounts, but only a few of them. When someone buys that model with $2500 off, one of the same configs with $500 off will be discounted more to take...
You’ll find that a properly installed 14-50 and purchasing the mobile connector is only marginally less expensive than a Wall Connector. I would not install 14-50s in 2023. Especially not with the cheap Leviton receptacles you’re going to find at Home Depot that like to melt.
1) your battery has no capacity warranty, so the 70% thing is not relevant. That said it doesn’t matter because it looks like you’re getting a new one.
2) you don’t have anything to worry about regarding the warranty as the issue clearly happened within the warranty period, the car logs will...
I could see a future scenario where home DC chargers become more common for situations where people really need or think they need 80-100 amp charging. Put the expensive conversion equipment on the wall instead of in every car when so few people need it.
Best case, you trip the breaker if you try charging both cars at the same time because you’re drawing more current than the circuit can provide.
Worst case you melt something or cause a fire.
If you want to charge two cars at the same time, you need two circuits.
Better question: why would they NOT add the camera from the get-go if they indented to in the near future? The wire and camera itself are surely the least expensive and complex component of the entire system.
The S could probably go away tomorrow without much issue but Tesla needs a real 3-row SUV if they want to be taken seriously in the US market. The X needs to continue with a major redesign and simplification.
The cybertruck is a cosplay joke and they’re going to sell through the people willing...
Tesla quality is what it always has been - variable. There is no credible evidence to suggest that late quarter cars are somehow "worse".
Just order what you want when you want it and hope for the best.
I had this happen at the airport once, car was losing range at an unexpectedly high rate for no particular reason.
Like you I came back to a completely frozen/dead MCU that needed the two button salute to bring back to life.
I assumed at the time the MCU crashed/froze in a weird state and...
