    Rear Ended. Best Options on Repair?

    I was just rear-ended in San Francisco in my 2019 Tesla Model 3 (trunk and rear bumper damage), and this is my first accident, so I'd appreciate any advice/help. Unfortunately, I only got the driver's license + insurance information from the driver and not the owner of the vehicle, so my...

    Tesla Dashcam - Proof of Idiot Causing Intentional Accident

    The "good stuff" starts around 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the video I uploaded. LOVE HAVING THE DASHCAM! Without it, this would have been considered my fault in Indiana and most everywhere else since I rear-ended him. Just wanted to share with everyone this idiot that decides to come from...

    Rental Replacement P85D - Turo?

    1st post! Unfortunately it’s because my 2015 P85D was rear ended on 3/27/19. Low speed, stop and go... they were probably texting. Their insurance has already contacted me and claimed 100% liability - which is great news but only the beginning of making the situation right. I’m wondering if...

    What is it with all these rear-end accidents? Here's my footage.

    I was in stop and go traffic last week on the freeway. Autopilot stopped but the Ford F250 box van behind me didn't quite make it. Luckily I had a front and rear dashcam...or so I thought. I offered it to the police officer. He said, "I don't need it." I told the insurance adjuster of the...

    Hi, My car rear ended recently in NJ. I've reached out to a couple of forum members for DV appraiser recommendations, but most of those appraisers out outside of the NYC/NJ area. Has anyone worked with an appraiser in the NYC area preferably one that deals with Tesla. Any advice or...

    2016 Model S 90D - Property Damage Claim Post Mortem

    After nearly two months, we finally settled our property damage claim after being rear ended in our 2016 Tesla Model S 90D. Insurance claims are something many of us dread about owning a Tesla, a risk we acknowledged going in. I thought I'd share the experience and the outcome in the hope it...

    AP2 TACC Shortcomings

    As a new user of TACC, I must say that I'm not impressed. It may be OK for light traffic on a highway, but for heavier Bay Area freeway driving or on city streets, it will, at the least, take some getting used to. Here's why: 1. I'm used to backing off the throttle or starting to brake when I...

    Just got rear ended

    I was driving to work today and was rear ended while sitting at a red light (@#$%^&!). I'm guessing the kid that hit me was going no faster than 5 mph because there was no visible damage to my 3 month old 70D other than dents in the rear bumper from his front license plate screws. The damage to...
