    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...

    2021 Model 3 Problems

    First off, I want to love my M3P. This is my first Tesla, and I took delivery of it on 23 Dec. Upon delivery, there were a couple issues. Minor scratch/gouge on front bumper, spoiler wasn't stuck on well, and after getting home, realized there was some type of overspray on all of the glass...

    Model S - Spreadsheet/Site of Revisions/Problems/etc

    Hi, I apologize as I'm sure I'm not the first to ask this, but I'm a long time Tesla-wanna-own-one and am definitely going to buy one "soon" but I have to figure out whether to go with an older pre-AP1 S, AP1 S or Model 3. I will probably rent some variants on Turo prior to buying, but what I...

    Model 3 Customer cannon fodder & the right to full refund Dekra Report

    Its been a rather frustrating time owning a model 3. It was meant to be part of an enjoyable YouTube series which ended in me personally not wanting to poster something of bad quality. Yes I held back. I have documented here the cluster of a pickup experience with pictures and video in another...

    Model Y Delivery Cancelled

    I can confirm that Tesla seems to be having huge problems with quality control on the Model Y. I was supposed to get delivery (home drop-off) yesterday, June 17th, 2020. They called saying that as they were driving to my house that they noticed the software installed did not match the...

    Delivery Rejection - At least 18 issues found

    Hi all. First post. Wish it was a more positive one. Looking for advice / suggestions on what to do.... I had to reject collecting my Performance Model 3 yesterday because I found 18 issues with the car and they couldn't confirm they would fix them before I drove away. After asking around it...

    Can we PLEASE Get a Competent Service Center in the Rocky Mountain Region?

    We have one in Littleton, one in Evans and a third in Superior (all suburbs of Denver BTW) that should be online sometime next year. That's three within about a half hour of each other in the Denver area. This is terrible planning. If they instead put the same three service centers in Denver...

    Paint chips on hood after 2,000 miles?

    I've had my LR AWD Model 3 for about 6 weeks now and have put just under 2,000 miles on it. As I was washing my car tonight, I noticed several very small paint chips on the hood in various locations and I can't figure out how they're getting there. My Model 3 is black and the paint chips appear...

    Anyone Experienced This Service Message

    My 2016.5 75D 66k miles has this bizarre issue that no one seems to know what it's caused by. Once every few days sometimes about a week a car needs service message pops up for less than a second followed by a short alert tone. The service center has checked the logs and saw where the message...

    3 Days Rule - Tesla QA not doing their job

    I have owned a Model S and a Model X, and I can share that my experiences have been vastly different so far. My Model S experience (started Nov 2015 in Southern California) was amazing. My Model X experience (December 2018 in Boston Area) has been horrific. I am only going to talk about one...

    Would you still buy an X?

    Forum Members, I'm seeking some advice/recommendations. After ordering a inventory Model X and preparing to pick it up, I received a call cancelling the pickup the day before.

    Is anyone else getting overcharged at the supercharger?

    Hi all, I recently did a road trip with my 3 and I noticed that what it was showing I was charged on my screen in my car was not what I was being charged on my credit card- my cc was more. I have contacted Tesla and no one is getting back to me and/or doing anything about it. I am pissed...

    Hello, I've searched around on many threads here and have found bits and pieces. Have tried various reboots with no luck. I wanted to see if anyone else was having these problems grouped together as I am. Since I got my 3 this spring, I love it but it's never worked very well with the phone...

    "Charge cable may not be plugged in correctly"

    Hey, I've had my Model 3 for a couple of months. I've plugged it in and charged it many times without issues before. Usually, when I plug it in, after a second the Tesla logo turns dark blue (from pale blue), at which point the charge cable is locked in. But today, I got a car wash from one...

    Research: Will imposing tax on Tesla cars really improve air pollution?

    Tesla Vehicles do not emit any gaseous pollution on streets because they are battery-powered, unlike other conventional private cars which work on combustion engines. It is interesting to see that despite knowing the severity of the roadside pollution in different traffic-prone areas, the...

    2018.10.4 Problems

    Here are a couple of 2018.10.4 problems I discovered today. The first problem, failure to complete an S-turn, could be a problem with the left side lane-line tracking algorithm. The vehicle seems to loose lane control when the yellow left line turns white. The second problem is an extreme...

    Thoughts about Autopilot 2.0

    Hi everyone, So I've been feeling a bit confused and perhaps borderline irritated at hearing some news about AP 2.5 or 2.1 whatever people are calling it. Regardless, it is a version of AP that is apparently more advanced than 2.0 because of better hardware and computing power that will enable...

    Autopilot 2.0 is dangerous

    Hi everyone, So I understand that AP 2.0 is still "beta" which is kind of frustrating to begin with because I purchased my AP 2.0 Model S in December and its almost May and I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel when a fully rolled out version will become available. Anyway now that I...

    Noise, judder opening pano roof

    Several months ago when I had the tires rotated, I had them look at the pano roof because it was juddering when opening. They lubed the cables and said it was important to catch it early so the cables didn't stretch. Now it's started squeaking when opening. The car is already scheduled to be...
