    Teslas With Rebuilt Title - Supercharging Removal

    Hello Everyone, I've not heard of any instances of Model 3s losing the ability to Supercharge. Almost all reported cases I've heard of are older Model Ss that had Free Supercharging. Just curious if anyone has heard of any cases? Certainly anyone who has one could lose it at any time, but...

    Salvage Car Owners Support Group.

    Someone once said you can have too much free time or too much free money, but never both. I'm in the free time camp, and thinking of buying a salvage car and fixing it up for my own enjoyment. I've read horror stories about Tesla not being salvage car friendly, but they seem to be rather...
