    how to test for battery health during a test drive.

    Hello everyone, I've been lurking on this forum for quite a while, as i am interested in buying a used Tesla model S, probably a 2013-2014 85kwh model as a replacement for my 1996 BMW 540I. The cost for newer models is unfortunatly too high to consider, and the model 3 is still relaltively new...

    Test Drive Model Y or 3 near Oneonta NY

    Does anyone have or have access to a Model Y or 3 (preferably a Y) near Oneonta or Albany NY, that my mother could test drive? She wants to get one, but wants to test drive, and the closest showroom is over 200 miles from her home. Thank You.

    Model Y test-drive experience (not a current Tesla owner)

    Considering buying a Model Y and Tesla were kind enough to provide us with an overnight test drive. Some thoughts feelings but some disclosure first: - I am a 'young-ish middle aged' woman (been driving for over 25 years, will leave it at that) - I don't currently own a Tesla - I do own a...

    Model Y Tail Light/Brake Light Issue?

    Test Drive Model Y - Montreal

    I booked a test drive for wednesday July 29th at the Tesla Montreal location. I'm pretty stoked the only downside is they told me since the demand is high for test drive I only have 20 minutes and it's a "small circuit". I guess we can't go on highways and I need to stay in the small area around...

    Helena Montana test sit/drive

    hello everyone, I am seriously considering buying a Tesla model Y. Unfortunately the nearest showroom is in Seattle. Call me old fashioned but I would really like to sit in one before buying. Is there anyone in Helena or the surrounding area who would be kind enough to let me sit in or perhaps...

    Model Y Test Drive - New England

    Impressed With Customer Support

    So today I went on Tesla's website and was figuring out what my lease payments would be. The chat box was on the right side and says chat now, so I decide to see if Tesla offers extended test drives. The guy I am chatting with tells me yes they do extended test drives if they have enough demo...

    Hi, my father is turning 95 next week and I’d love to give him a ride in my M3P but it’s in California. He seems super-fascinated with Teslas since I got one. Is there anyone in the Midland Mi or Tri-Cities area that would be willing to take him and me for a test ride? Any Tesla would work...

    Tesla Test-drive Volunteers

    Most people want to test drive a vehicle before purchase. It’s a major investment. The lack of test-drive availability will turn away most non-tesla/EV enthusiast prospects. Tesla should do the following: On their website, allow Tesla owners to register to volunteer to be a “Test-drive...

    Free 3 Test Rides in the Quad Cities Area

    After waiting 988 days since placing my reservation (before Elon revealed what the 3 was even going to look like), I picked up my MR 3 with EAP on Dec 14 at Westmont. It was flawless in fit and finish, and absolutely amazing to drive in every way. The 3 exceeds my expectations in virtually...

    Test drive

    I am interested in ordering a model x but haven’t spent any time in the car. There is not a DesignStudio within 3 hours of me so if I call my closest design studio will they let me drive a demo one for a few days? What’s the proper protocol? Thanks in advance.

    Two-day test drive, or renting a Model S/X

    Hello TMC, I am a longtime Tesla fan who has been lurking on these forums for years, maybe even a decade now. I first found out about Tesla through AC Propulsion, long before Elon Musk was CEO and I got to sit in early Roadster and early Model S prototypes when they first showed them in public...

    Organize Model 3 Volunteer Test Drives?

    Many of you may have seen this thread where in the UK Tesla drivers gave over 10,000 test drives to interested people: Tesla owners take over Silverstone to give ‘10,000 test rides’ to showcase electric vehicles. What about creating a simple web site or even two Google forms that allowed (1)...

    Driving a P3D made me feel like Thanos

    I test-drove a red/white P3D at Tesla HQ. The car feels like the inside of a white retro-futuristic Woody Allen spaceship. Small roadster feel, short hood, small racer-sized steering wheel. Just point and go. Gobs of torque, never got close to its acceleration or handling limits Unlike BMW M3...

    Had an overnight demo of a Model S

    Hi All, I had an overnight demo of a Model S 75D last night. It was my first time driving a Tesla. And I have to say....WOW! The driving dynamic of that car is completely different than anything I've ever driven before. That low center of gravity made it handle like a champ. Acceleration was so...

    Thoughts after a weekend with Model X

    My family was treated to a 24 hour test drive on a P90DL Model X this past weekend. I originally wrote this down for myself, but then realized it might be helpful for the community so I’m publishing it here on TMC. It's a bit long, but really it was written as a bit of a journal for myself...

    What are the best arguments you've heard NOT to get a Tesla S/X/(3) ?

    I'm not sure if this is the right branch here, but I keep wondering why people are still keep buying premium ICE cars. Do people seriously argue about not being able to drive ~400 miles in one tank on $80k~ cars? Do they really need to take their 650i on rock-chippy road trips? I have a slight...

    Discrepancy between test drive age online and in Tesla store

    I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this. I signed up for a test drive online where the form stated you have to be 21 years old to test drive. However, when I got to the store, they informed me that I couldn't test drive because I'm not 25 or older. Luckily, I brought my dad along, so I...
