    Model S Driving problems, thoughts?

    I have a 2016 P100D and I was casually driving today and made a right hand turn at a very reasonable/non-aggressive speed 10-15mph and the car instantly felt as if it fishtailed behind me as if I flew thru the turn at 40mph. I straightened it out and now the steering wheel is off center and...

    Weak Windshield Fluid & Clunking Sound

    I just got the 21 LR back in July and since day 1 or 2, the windshield wiper fluid barely came out. I pretty much topped it off and tried again with no change whatsoever. Is it normal for the fluid to not shoot out like it does in virtually every single car out there? It looks like a little...
