    Safety Hazard Driving in Heavy Rain

When she finally got in the car (with our infant daughter), the windshield wipers, headlights and taillights would not work. She received the following error...

    sway bar+link replacement: safety issue or minor noise issue?

    My relatively new 2018 Model S (< 5k miles) started having loud clanking noise when turning. I took it to Tesla service center.

    Backup Camera Disappears when Touching UI on AP1 Cars

    I don't have too much hope any of this will ever be resolved. A number of years ago Tesla made a change in the UI where if the backup camera was showing (default when you put the car into reverse) any touch of the screen would cause the backup camera to disappear. This is a huge safety issue. I...

    Winter Driver: Extremely hazardous

    Last week, I drove from the SF Bay Area to Lake Tahoe. Above 5000 feet, it was snowing (heavy flurries), snow on the surface, temperature 29-31F, on a two lane highway (US50). We stopped for 2 hours while an avalanche was cleared, and then resumed travel in the dark. Soon, the road was barely...

    Model 3 - Horn Issue - Check the left side

    I wanted to create a post to help other users as this could be a safety/QC issue on the horn not honking. I added the same response on a few replies to other posts but for search reasons I decided another main post is needed. This left side horn issue was more concerning for me because I am left...
