    Start from last Tuesday, I noticed that my S85 with 28000 km is making a buzzing noise with acceleration that sound like a table saw being used.
    Does anyone has the similar problem? Looks like a lot owners in States have it.

    Sorry to hear that you should bring it into service ASAP; you're right for the owners in the states, they replaced the entire powertrain for that milling noise.

    I suppose it is a failure of the gears or bearings.

    TESLA told me to replace the drive unit, they didn't mention any gears or bearings issues. Just waiting their call for replacement when the parts arrived from US.

    hopefully it's covered under warranty though?

    Would you mind making a video/sound recording of the noise? It would be nice reference for HK owners to see if they are just paranoid or the drive unit is really failing haha

    Did you do a lot of burn outs from traffic lights? :biggrin:

    +point for Tesla HK
