Between 30ish and 35ish mph usally while holding speed the car surges alittle bit like rapidly tapping and letting off the gas pedal. Enough that even my Wife said something about it. 21k miles. Any Ideas?

I'm in Mid Michigan so I cant just zip on down to a service center.

As it's a Tesla, you probably have little choice but to talk to the service centre.

Best guess (and it really is just a guess) the accelerator pedal sensor is dirty and not giving good readings to the computer. But it could also be something in the inverter/motor leading to inconsistencies at those speeds/power draws.

Thanks for the reply. Im not overly worried about it. I bought the car CPO and have started a little list of things that need attention and this is gonna be one of them.
