    Just over 1000 miles on my Model 3, on 10.5

    Tonight we got in the car to run down the road. Two times within the first quarter mile while accelerating the car felt like it stopped getting power to the motor for a split second. Only way I can describe it is it felt like if you took your foot off the accelerator suddenly and regen kicked in. Just lasted a second each time and then didn’t happen again the next 10 miles or on the way back.

    Anyone experience this?

    Did you have an opportunity to grab any pictures from the power consumption histogram display?

    Probably "missing". My car does this when the points get worn. Most obvious at open throttle at low engine speed.

    /sorry, had nothing useful to contribute.

    Dry, clean road surface? Were you driving sedately, or giving it some beans? Accelerating under cornering loads, etc? It kinda sounds like traction control, though I have no experience with Tesla TC/SC specifically.

    Just regular acceleration (not flooring it) on a regular flat road. Just felt like power completely went away for a split second. Hasn’t happened again and we drove another couple hundred miles since then. Just watching it.

    Did you file a bug report? You should do that whenever you see glitches, especially since they may not repro that often, but something like that could be indicative of a future failure.

    Yes, I did. Wish they’d follow up on it though so I could explain and ask questions. Also emailed my local contact in Charlotte.
