Shoulda kept that girl. She had good tasteWhen I lived in Paris in the late 80's anyone who had an "expensive" car got keyed. It was a class issue. You know, angry serfs? (It may still be a thing). Most just left the key marks as it was so common. So maybe the advice to live with it is best. (The girl I dated had an ancient mini Cooper S, completely restored -- no one touched it.)
you would assume package thieves and lawn vandals would do the same, yet they and their plates are busted on home surveillance cams all the timeJust a hunch but I would assume they walked to the vehicle and parked a safe distance away. Just a hunch…
in all seriousness what’s a camera going to do? Takes 5 seconds to key a car. By the time you’re notified they are gone. Person is probably wearing a mask.
sentry mode is not going to help you. Video quality is crappy and a mask defeats it. You are sol. Get a house with a garage.
You need to check your sentry mode settings. Make sure you do not have it set to exclude your home.I'm not sure what to do at this point. It is obvious I am being targeted, as this is happening in my driveway where I live. I do have a prime suspect but sentry mode is not recording these incidents! This week's vandalism was the worst yet - 8 panels (from the hood down the side to the trunk and above the window, $12,600 in damages - I drove to Tesla service to have them check why sentry (which was on) did not - again - catch anything. They guessed maybe it was asleep; maybe they knew how to avoid the front camera and ducked under the side camera. No alarm (triggered only if the car is rocked/shook).
I am looking at trail cameras, dash cam cameras, extra flood lights...am looking for suggestions from the community. I can't keep getting it repaired only to have the car ruined two weeks later. I've lived at my house for 20 years and nothing has ever happened like this. And there are 4 other Teslas on the block!
I do have a nest camera pointed at my car in the driveway but they always target the other side of the car overnight.
Help. I worried my Tesla/Crawford insurance is going to cancel me.View attachment 648662View attachment 648662View attachment 648663View attachment 648664View attachment 648665View attachment 648666View attachment 648667View attachment 648668
There are negative-influencers around. They spread information on Tesla-oriented discussion forums that helps to deter newcomers from buying Tesla. A few are found on every Tesla-related discussion board.I cant help but notice that this OP joined TMC, made this single post, and has not even visited the website since making this post. At this point, since there is no other interaction from the OP other than the opening post, it doesnt feel like a real post.
On the other hand, I've seen people with their first problem, panic, post a query on several sites. Get an answer from one of those sites that helps them, and never go back to the other sites that they carpet bombed in their panic.I cant help but notice that this OP joined TMC, made this single post, and has not even visited the website since making this post.

Posting all those pics seems real enough. Seems like the fakers, provide minimal hard data so there's little to contradict.
I really hate the "if you can afford a Tesla..." argument - it is simply misleading and inaccurate, not to mention classistIf u can afford a Tesla your house should have a garage esp in LA.
