    Good to know. Thanks

    Key fob not working after battery replacement

    Interesting...thanks for sharing. I still find it strange they would need to order new keys if it was a reset of the car's fob programming. you would think they could reprogram the existing ones. Hopefully there is no charge for the keys.

    Key fob not working after battery replacement

    One of my MX key fobs stopped working this winter and the other key fob had a low battery warning so I went ahead and replaced both batteries. They were more than two years old. After replacing the batteries neither fob worked. I ordered the same type of batteries and tried resetting them a few...

    loud fan in "hot" weather

    I usually get the loud fan noise for the first 30 seconds when turning the car on in the heat. After that it seems to settle down.

    Thank you for not insisting you were pressing the brake and the car accelerated on its own.

    Model S cannot be ordered with a metal roof AT ALL now?

    My guess is that so few people are ordering solid metal now after the introduction of the relatively cheap all glass option that it saves money by simplifying the manufacturing line. I understand your stated point about why you want it dark, but I would say try to be open minded about it. The...

    HPWC Crashing

    Mine has done this a few times. Only once I had to flip the breaker. The other times just holding the reset button down resolved the issue.

    $2000 Across the board price decrease January 1?

    I would venture to guess 90%+ supercharger enabled cars do not even charge 400kWh/yr. Many people only take one or two long trips a year but need the flexibility. So it's more of a theoretical reduction in value. Conversely having a more accessible, less busy supercharger network is an increase...

    I've had the car since June and have not had any FWD issues. Have not actually been to the service center even once for anything.

    Massive battery drain at airport during 3 week trip

    Key things would be to turn "always connected" off. I would assume you would do that if you were traveling but this would make a huge difference in vampire miles used.

    Trump's Dept. of Energy Witchhunt

    Further to this point, XOM was one of the major companies that was aware of climate change since the 70's and has funded climate change denial research to spread the idea that there is not scientific consensus: Beginning in 2004, the descendants of John D. Rockefeller, led mainly by his...

    Trump's Dept. of Energy Witchhunt

    I don't get your point. So let's take it as true that there are people in the DOE who made a mistake or are charlatans or whatever. Are you implying that because of that climate change is made up or the vast majority of scientists who study it are wrong? I think you are missing the forest for...

    New MCU computer in AP2.0 cars?

    Back in the day we benchmarked cars by putting them on the dyno. Nowadays we are more interested in the performance of the processor so we run javascript benchmarks on the MCU and compare it to our phones. Who would have thought?

    Get Elon to discuss Climate Change with Donald Trump! Petition

    As much as Elon would make for a great advisor it would probably be a pretty terrible conversation. Can you imagine Elon, with his pure science based rational thought process, talking to someone who just says literally anything that pops into his head.

    Nav 8.0 - UI not made for driving

    I had pretty much the exact opposite reaction to the new UI. I think the design overall is cleaner and a needed refresh. The top bar not showing is a good use of the space. This is how I set the navbar to work on my computer. Also, I had the opposite experience with things being position closer...

    FWD door issue after 8.0 upgrade?

    Also got 8.0 yesterday and noticed that the doors open faster but no issue with false obstacles. I've had this once in the past and it just went away on its own.

    Closing FWD after....

    The door can close in extremely tight spaces and will adjust the arc based on the proximity of the other car. so I really doubt this would ever be an issue. You can drive the car slowly to back out of the spot with the door open.

    Should I charge to 100% (night before trip) if my first supercharger stop is only 80 miles away?

    Want to caveat that range charging one time won't hurt your battery, but every day will degrade the battery faster.

    Nope. Sounds like something service center will have to check if it persists.

    Jersey City Condo Tesla Owners!

    I lived in Jersey City for a while in a condo wth the Model X. We kept the car parked in a garage which did not have any charging options. I would usually charge at the charge points on 1st and Bay. There are two dedicated to the public and usually open. Otherwise when going long distance would...

    Tune in integration is a disaster

    I use tunein all the time and also listen to radiolab. Trick-- when you are getting out of the car PAUSE the show. This usually prevents it from starting over. I don't understand why you can't fast forward by dragging the place indicator. That's what I usually do.

    BMW management to skip Paris show over electric car impasse

    This is illustrative of why it will take so long for major car companies to shift to electric. It won't happen until the culture of the company changes which could take as long as waiting for the current generation to retire. Tesla clearly already has that culture.

    Model X EZ pass mounting

    Even though they gave this to you at delivery for the X I think that issue with the transponder is specific to the S. They have different glass. I have had no issues with the EZ pass transponder being mounted under the rear view mirror.

    Some California Superchargers not providing maximum charging rates

    I'm so glad Tesla Superchargers exist. They are vastly more reliable than chargepoint, blink, or other public chargers not to mention much faster. It goes without saying no other car company has created a network of high speed chargers. I will gladly accept reduced charging rates in certain...

    Is the SCTY/TSLA merger a brilliant way to direct sale in MI/TX/UT, etc?

    Undoubtably this is exactly what they will do. It will be tough for auto dealer lobbies to pass laws restricting direct sales of solar panel and batteries. This is one more way Tesla is breaking the rules on what is an auto maker.

    Autopilot vs. Drivepilot

    That was also my first though about it not being called Beta: "I got the Drive Pilot to “drive” itself for as long as sixty seconds, which is as along as Mercedes-Benz deems it safe. Trust me, you don’t want to take your hands off the wheel that long unless your car’s on fire and you’re...

    FCW works really well. I took my eyes off the road for 30 seconds today and the car in front of me stopped. Didn't notice until BEEP BEEP BEEP. whoa. Very glad this is a standard feature on all models. I can see this preventing a ton of slow speed fender benders.
