    Lawn Alert

    Driving on the lawn in ankle deep grass I get non-stop alerts. The car apparently can't tell the difference between soft grass and hard curbs. How do I temporarily turn off these alarms?

    I know that part of the reason insurance for Teslas is so expensive is because they are expensive to repair or replace. But Tesla cars are also equipped with safety features that should discount premiums. Below are some of them. I've sent this list to my insurance company and to those that I'm...
