    Well, after 43k miles, my drive unit gave out. As always, Tesla service was awesome. The pulled the logs from the car, found the issue and swapped out mine for a loaner. The replacement was done the next day.

    One question I had is.. what exactly is part of the drive unit? Is it the motor? Gear assembly? More?

    It's the motor, the inverter and the reduction grears and differential. Actually I'm not sure the differential is part of it.
