    I have had my 75 for exactly a week, over the last few days periodically the airbag warning indicator shows on the instrument display randomly whilst driving, after a few seconds the indicator goes off.

    I contacted my service centre today and once I confirmed my VIN they went away to check something, I assume they checked the fault history uploaded from my vehicle. They then phoned back and have requested the vehicle be returned for an investigation relating to the airbag. I have been promised a loan vehicle so hopefully it shouldn't take long to resolve.

    Is this common? niggly faults? a brand new car showing a fault after only a week? I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

    I haven't heard of this being a problem, so it is probably something minor like a loose connector. But I am sure Tesla will resolve it.

    Probably minor. Agree it's probably just a loose connector. It's a bit counterintuitive, but the first few thousand miles are the most likely time for issues with a new car to come up.

    I had a similar problem around a year ago, loose connector, didn't take long to sort out.

    Thanks for the replies, I have just been in the car on a short journey and had the indicator chime twice, no problem though, ill let the service centre sort it out on Tuesday. At the end of the day the sheer brilliance of the Model S makes up for this small problem!
