Agree with you on that. Unless someone really diagnose the problem can show positively it is software issue, we can't assume this is some software issue. To me, based on description of the problem, some kind of connector issue between Screen MCU. Its Tesla responsibility to figure that out and fix it asap.
But unfortunately, it is not just Tesla, I ran into similar issues many manufacturers. Esp with random issues it is more, so I would not just say Tesla is any worst than other manufacturers in this aspect.
Few years ago, one of my friends brand new Suzuki car, suddenly dead at intersections, sometime does not start at all, This is all random. Dealer keeps car for a week, and gives back saying they did not see any problem. He got so frustrated, and prepared for big loss trade-in. I suggested him to leave the car with me for few days during his vacation and I started driving it. Over couple of weeks, I ran into problem and it turns out not a problem with Fuel pump/injectors or ignition coil, it is bad crank angle sensor.( I had some gadgets to check these things). We replaced that crank angle sensor and that car still running like champ after more than decade now.
Hey we are all with you here man and we feel your pain. As others have said, I hand it to you that you even gave Tesla a second chance. Now I feel so bad for you that the second car has also become a problem. You certainly get the patience award! Hope you can get some satisfaction soon. Keep us up to date.Why not?
Is a model 3 with a repacement battery pack not as good as a new one from factory? What do I need to know or watch out for here?
I don’t expect to be comp’d, as a long term TSLA stock owner, I’m not looking to screw over them company.
Just want what I paid for, a functioning Model 3.
Do you all not see this is Tesla’s own doing? It’s not me the buyer, returning perfectly good cars for fun!
Put out some Quality cars Tesla! I’m at 0/2!
My model 3 #1 would have been lemon law’d, it had 1 unsuccessful (maybe counted as 2 repair request) repair for faulty touchscreen. 3 more unsuccessful firmware/software repair would qualify for lemon law return. #1 was almost certainly going down this path, in someways I didn’t want that for that car or Tesla. Thus, I choose the 7day refund.
I’m almost at the end of my patience with Tesla, and if you read all of my postings this thread, most of you would say I’ve given Tesla more than a fair shot.
For fun, here’s #2 on flat bed. 197 miles on it, at Burbank service center.
