My wife drove to a rec center and when she got out to the lot , it would not start. Tesla Service showed up quickly with a loaner. The next day they already had installed a "D" pack. It was a new one, (not reconditioned ) so I was very happy. All they told me was that there was a "electronic " problem. After a little research, I would not want a "A" or even a "B" Pack. Tesla Service is awesome!
Winter driving in the rear drive Model S is excellent. The key is snow tires. I bought an extra set of rims from Tesla and ordered a set of Michelin X-ice from Tire Rack. With great snow tires, 4,700 pounds of evenly distributed weight and traction control, the 2-wheel drive is awesome in snow & ice. The first winter, we went over Vail Pass in the worst blizzard I have ever experienced in my 38 years of Colorado driving. We were stuck for 2 hours One mile from the summit to clear up multiple accidents. Cars and trucks were stuck and spun-out everywhere. We had to creep down the pass with visibility of only a few feet. The model S was perfect. They are awesome in the snow/ice as long as you have snow tires. All-seasons will not cut it. Jim
Update: I have had lots of interest and a couple of people were close...but no sale yet. For some strange reason, I can't get in to edit my ad. I am now dropping the price to $58,500. This is an excellent value with the "D" battery pack. Jim 303-503-6220 [email protected]
Congrats bsbomber on selling your Model S. It was great talking to you about Tesla's and other EV's. In talking to you about buying your car, made me order a new one. Whoever got your car, got a great one!
