*note* this is not me, lol. I was just looking to see if there had been any technical service bulletins yet to fix the steering wheel column click but I noticed that there was a new NHSTA safetey complaint filed yesterday. I don't recall ever having a burning smell when I first got mine. That doesn't sound right about Tesla responding with "it's normal it'll go away". I'd say Tesla still has a lot of work to do to make their service "the best service program in the world" per Elon's wishes. I hope this guy gets this problem resolved. Bad first impression Even if it is "normal", a better customer service response would have been like "We're pretty sure that's [xxxxx] component breaking in and that the smell will subside in a few days, but if you are still concerned why don't you bring it in and we'll take a look to make sure everything looks ok and we'll set you up with a loaner if needed etc etc". THAT's a proper service response. not "go away". lol I guess others had something similar from the link he posted: http://www.teslamotors.com/FORUM/FORUMS/BURN-SMELL-NEW-TESLA-S-WHEN-HEAT and http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/something-smells-burning-wire - - - Updated - - - eh the title is wrong, it was filed yesterday and the date of incident was 07/01. mods feel free to fix.
