[Advise needed] second Tesla in the family

If you set up under the same account you can swipe between the two vehicles in the Tesla app to control/unlock/drive. Otherwise you have to log out and log back in each time. If you rarely or never drive or need to control each other's vehicles, there's not a real need to set them up under the same account. Of course phone as key doesn't work on your MS.

It's best to create one main Tesla account to put all the cars under. Then create separate user accounts on Tesla for each user so they can log into their app individually. Then add other users on the individual cars as you get them. Much easier for adding/removing users and cars as time goes on. This way you can manage all cars from the same interface both online and through the app.

There is a way to swipe between the two vehicles with 2 separate accounts.

Sign into your Tesla account online.
Hit the manage button for your car.
You should then see an option for car access.
From there you add the name and email address of the other Tesla account.
They would then do the same on their account to allow you to access their car.
