    2016 Model X, leaking touchscreen

    My 2016 Model X began leaking touchscreen fluid from the bottom a month or so ago. We brought it in today and were told that it had a 4 year warranty on the screen and it has been six years. We showed them an article (NHTSA Asks Tesla to Recall Roughly 158,000 Model S and Model X Cars Over...

    NHTSA Data Shows that Tesla has the Least Amount of Recalls

    Based on public data released by NHTSA, Tesla has had the least amount of vehicle recalls compared to other large car manufacturers from early 2020 to 2022. (source: Reuters) In addition to this, over one-third of their recalls are solved by over-the-air software updates, making Tesla the only...

    2021 Model 3/Y Heating Issues

    So, my car just got this issue. It seems to be fairly quick to diagnose (besides not actually feeling heat) since the climate screen will have the "Climate Keeper is unavailable..." message, and you won't be able to turn on Dog or Camp mode, etc. You also won't be able to use the remote climate...

Model 3 achieves the lowest probability of injury of any vehicle ever tested by NHTSA Now that crash test data is out for the Model Y, does anyone know...

    MCU1 NHTSA Recall

    Would the recall by the NHTSA for the ~150,000 Tesla Model S and X be extended to Canada as well? I haven’t heard about any recall in Canada for these sceens, just the warranty extension program that was mentioned by Tesla a few months ago

    Yet Another MCU Failure Post

    Well everybody, it just happened to me. I upgraded from my 2014 Black Tesla Model S (which I loved!) to another fantastic 2015 Silver Tesla Model S. Upgrades for me include having autopilot 1, which alone is a huge upgrade, dual motor capability, and updated interior, among many other items...

    Why does Tesla get so much attention from NHTSA?

    https://ktla.com/2019/12/31/feds-investigate-deadly-gardena-crash-involving-tesla/ Plenty of other vehicles have varying levels of automation (like TACC). But stories of crashes with those vehicles don't seem to make the news every day. They only hit the news when there's a major...

    Autopilot Engaged and Override

    Has anyone had a similar experience? Yesterday my Tesla Model 3 (2018 version) proceeded to accelerate while the brake pedal was depressed going through an intersection at 20 miles and hour (accelerated to 45) causing an uncontrollable maneuver and vehicle control loss. The vehicle failed to...

    U.S. safety agency says 'did not assess' Tesla Autopilot effectiveness

    U.S. safety agency says 'did not assess' Tesla Autopilot effectiveness Following that fatality, Tesla pointed to a 2017 NHTSA report on a May 2016 fatality involving a driver using Autopilot. The report said crash rates fell by 40 percent after installation of Autopilot’s Autosteer function...

    Timeline of Crash Safety Testing

    I began truly following Tesla after Model S entered full scale production, so I am quite lacking of any concept of how long it took Tesla, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), to rate the crash safety ratings of the Model S, or Model X, and to extrapolate those time...

    V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) Communication in FSD-Ready Teslas

    As NHTSA pushes for implementation of V2V communication in new vehicle, what does this mean for the current Tesla's being marketed as hardware ready for FSD? Are any of those opting for full-FSD at purchase (as opposed to an upgrade later), concerned with this potential requirement being put in...

    NHTSA crash tests results/videos

    I'm not sure if these have already been posted somewhere on the site, but I came across some of the NHTSA crash testing videos on the Model S. It looks like the rating will be released soon( or already has been released). The Youtube video says that is 5 star crash tested. Seeing those Model S's...
