    Third Party Battery Replacement/Repair in Ontario

    I'm always worried that the battery will die out of warranty on the 2017 Model S 100D and I am not thrilled by the idea of paying $26K to Tesla service for a battery replacement. And I'm the type to believe that I should be my own insurer and save money for repairs (not like there are any good...

    BMS-029 - Tesla Must Do Better

    I am an early adopter of Tesla. I bought my Model S in Feb of 2015, laying out close to 90k for a car – which is something I would have never dreamed of doing previously. But I believed in the mission, I believed in the car – so I traded in my Kia Optima and subjected myself to this grand...

    Failed Model 3 HV Battery - Out of Warranty - DIY

    Has anyone ever gotten Tesla Service to replace a battery due to degradation?

    I'm engaged with Tesla Service on the drastic range drop my 2018 Model 3 LR is experiencing. 3.5 years and 89k miles in, I'm down to barely 200 miles in summer for a full charge and as low as 150 miles in winter. I requested service and after several rounds of email with Tesla Service, it's...

    Battery Failure after 9 months and 15k miles: BMS_a029 maximum battery charge level reduced

    Most likely will need entire battery replaced. MYP noticed degradation from 90% 271 down to 251 in 9 month 15k miles. The warning triangle popped up and no longer charging and I just drove it to SC. Now with the distribution and supply chain woes, this can take up to 3 to 4 weeks. On top of that...

    Battery Replaced Under Warranty - 30+ miles below rated range

    My 2014 Model S60 battery failed two weeks ago. I received it back today and I looked like the range was odd. I believe the S60 was rated at 208 and when I got home I decided to charge it to 100% to check the range and at 100% it is 173. They told me I was getting a refurbished pack. I...

    My 2015 Model S 70D would overheat at superchargers(Heat levels would severely cripple acceleration/braking if supercharging for 45+ mins).
