    Vehicle pulls right at low speed

    Our 2017 100D Model X suddenly started wobbling at low speeds and pulling really hard to the right. As the speed increases, the need to fight the pull lessens, but never quite goes away. Here’s a video of the issue: Any ideas what might be causing the issue? I turned off lane assist. We...

    Model Y comparable to Model 3 (Driving experience)

    Today I drove both model Y and model 3 to check the driving experience. Model 3 feels towards the ground and steering is amazing and turns are very clean and I could really feel the car in ground. On the other hand, model Y doesn't seem to be that much towards the ground, but comfort was the...

    Interior, exterior and driving experience within spec??

    Hi everybody. Hope everybody is safe and sound. I recently picked up a Model Y. Was told that the fit and finish is within spec by the sales associate. What do you guys think? In addition to the fit and finish, the two biggest concerns I have are cabin noise and driving experience. 1. Can hear...

    Driving position, steering wheel adjustment for tall people

    Got delivery of a Model 3 four days ago. This car replaced my Model S 75D. One thing I noticed (that I probably missed during test drive) is how limited the movement of the steering wheel is when is adjusted. I am 6’ 2” tall and in general I have to move the driver seat almost all the way back...

    In the snow and the cold.

    I live in Maine. First, I wish there was a dealership here in my state. Second, I want to order one, but wonder about any tests that have been done on the cold weather conditions in my state. How might it handle in the snow and ice? How well is the weight balanced? If the rear end is very...

    I am becoming a dangerous driver

    With AutoPilot, and especially with Navigate on AutoPilot, I find my self looking more and more on the dashboard and the center screen than on the road: 1) With Navigate on Autopilot, I find my self looking a lot on the dashboard screen and waiting for a signal to confirm lane change. As far as...

    A delivery story in NC

    In 2003 after getting my first job after college, I purchased my first new car. It was a VW Jetta. That was my first and only experience purchasing a car for myself until today. I have wanted a Tesla since ~2011 and I purchased stock that year. I put down a reservation for a Model S, but...

    Tesla Model 3 Review | Part One | Driving Performance

    TLDW 1) Yes! 20in Turbines 2) 5.1s 0-60 is conservative, lighter wheels and better tires can improve this. 3) The stock all-season tires perform as you would expect from all-season tires. Understeer bias. UHP tires are an improvement for warm weather driving and balance the performance of the...

    Noticed something odd with autopilot

    Over the past two days I've noticed that twice now my vehicle automatically adjusted speed with the speed limit. I know that it always reduces speed when the speed limit changes but twice now while driving into a higher speed limit Zone the vehicle sped up. It's only happened twice and I can't...

    Creep Mode.. drifting backwards...a third option needed?

    I like to keep Creep Mode OFF, but the issue I have is that without creep mode, the car is in total free wheel mode (forward and backwards), and so once or twice I have found myself drifting backwards when the road has even the slightest of inclines on a normal "flat" road... It would be great...

    Owner story: Why I Will Never Buy a Gas Car Again

    I thought you guys might enjoy our story. I think it is unique because Model S has been my family's sole vehicle for about a year and 27,000 miles. I wrote about it on Medium. Why I’ll Never Buy a Gas Car Again — Tech + Biz, D Sparks — Medium Enjoy, and thanks for reading :)

    Creep ON or OFF?

    Before I ordered my MS I test drove a couple and I absolutely loved the Creep OFF function. It felt like I was driving a stick, but of course not really. However, in reverse, where I normally just ride the brake, I'm not as fond of it. Wondering your thoughts on the creep?

    Impressions After Owning a Model S 10 days

    I’ve had a chance to live with the car now for 10 days, take 2 100+ mile round trips and generally, consider how it compares with other nice cars I’ve owned. To give you some perspective, and some context from whence my opinions come, I traded in a Jaguar XJ for the MS, and have most recently...

    Vacationing in Norway with a Model S

    What with the Supercharger build out in Norway, my wife and I think it makes great sense to try a vacation in Norway. We see several ideas about driving vacations in Norway, and we see that there is a gorgeous country and interesting people. Now they have Tesla! If there were a place a...

    521 Mile Road Trip From East Bay To Eugene and Back

    Hey guys, I'm looking into making a 521 mile road trip from my home in the Sf Bay Area to The University of Oregon in order to drop my son at school. After a few months of tirelessly hacking away at the Blink, ChargePoint, and PlugShare pages, I began to stalk the rumored Supercharging locations...

    Thoughts on Self-Driving Cars...From a Car Enthusiast's Perspective.

    I am somewhat torn on the prospect of self-driving cars. With the ubiquity of mobile devices has come an exponential increase in driver distraction, which I witness on a daily basis in manifold forms. (i.e. not going when light turns green, drifting in lane, driving too slowly, etc.) so for...
