Purchased a new model S top of the line. It was supposed to be delivered in June. I got a delivery date but said I was out of town for a few days. They said no problem, then when I got back they had sold the car out from under me. Now it is 3 months later. Finally got my car delivered. They took away my old model S. The guy who delivered it didn't know a lot of details about the function of the car. The car seemed real stiff and rather difficult to steer. The guy said this was normal. Not on my old model S it wasn't but I assumed this was a new feature. Then when I got up the next day there were multiple error messages ( stability control disabled, adaptive ride control degraded, traction control disabled). I called Tesla they suggested resetting the car. The resets he suggested didn't work. He said do not drive it, other than to immediately take it to Tesla service, without an appointment, as it is unsafe to drive. I brought it to service, and now it will be a week or more to fix. No loaner vehicles available. Now I am stuck without a car, and car rentals in LA now are really hard to find ( had to go to 4 car rental places). Any suggestions other than to wait. There is nothing good about this.
