I have 42,000 miles.
Max charge 251
Jan 2013 purchase
Any of you hi-milers opt to NOT purchase the extended warranty? If so, have you had to take it in and what was the cost?
That makes since! $4000 + $200 per incident deductible is a bit hard to swallow. I figure there is a 25% chance I would regret it, and a 75% chance I'd save thousands.
My 90% varies from 229 to 231 miles. My 100% is around 254 miles.I was still getting as high as 261 miles rated on max charge as of last week at just over 50k miles. That number has varied somewhat based upon what firmware version I'm on, however. I've seen as low as the 252 mile rated range on some versions. None the less, degradation has been fairly minimal. My daily 90% is between 232-234 miles.
My original max range was 272 miles, so depending upon which number you believe (252 or 261) that's somewhere between 4-8% range loss.
This. Also Tesla Motors has changed the way the car calculates estimated mileage range several times with the different software versions, so even if I had recorded the original numbers, the data would only give you a ballpark estimate of battery degradation.But in general the number of miles displayed after a 100% charge isn't necessarily the best way to measure battery degradation since the number tends to increase after a few deep discharges and 100% charges.
50K at 1 year and a week, last month. (apologies in advance if this sucky UI turns my pic on it's side)
I should have known that starting this thread would jinx me! Just over 51k miles, and an internal "switch" in the battery pack has failed. I'm waiting for a loaner battery, and should be good to go later today.
True :redface: . In fact, I'd like to give a shout-out to the West Palm Beach service center for their excellent customer service; I dropped my car off last night after they had closed, and I already have my car back with a loaner battery.Thankfully that should be covered under the 8 year warranty, so at least it isn't costing you anything but pride!
