Hi I am sure there a lot of thread similar to this and each person experience is different, but I still wanted to give my 2 cents as well. I am at the 2 weeks shy of 1 year mark and have 17k miles on there. Just had my 15k serviced a few weeks ago. I'll just list a few observations via bullets. Note: My observation based upon my living area of Southern California where I do get in the habit of driving from Inland Empire to as far as North Ventura County (approx 80-90ish miles one way) or to San Diego (approx 100 miles - 130 miles) one way. Being a 1st time electric vehicle owner is like being a 1st time parent. You get nervous about running out of electric while cruising around town. I carry the charging cable everywhere I go, constantly worrying every miles I drive and have to anxiously look for a charger the minute the get to location, worrying I don't have enough to go elsewhere. But that is somewhat true. Owning an electric vehicle is a life style change and over time you unconsciously adjust and compensate / react accordingly. The Tesla in car map is a great tool. Use it often, use it often, use it often. Even if you are 100% sure you know the direction, use it often to help you gauge your power consumption. If you thinking of buying CPO, make sure it is post 2015 model.The pre 2015 model is very noisy in comparison. As mention earlier, it is a lifestyle change, you plugin as often as you can where there is an available charging location. However, that does not mean blindly plug in unnecessarily and paying for charging. Over time as you drive and starting to gauge the distance of the area you drive, you will know what is the comfortable zone and when to charge and not charge. But do get into the habit of plug in at night when you get home Talk to your power company and charge at night. With Southern California Edison, we have a Time of Use plan where I can charge at night at 12 cents / kw. During the day, I use Solar Panel to of set the day time high charge rate. Know your area. If you plan to go far, let say over 60-80 miles one way from your home, plan ahead. How many Super Chargers are there in the area between you and there. If no Super Charger, next best thing is how many Nrg EVgo DC Charger, then how many Blink DC charger, then how many ChargePoint. From that sequence down is the fastest to slowest charging available if you need it. Open as many charging station account you can find. You will bound to find one nearby with one of the brand. In the whole year, I've used public charging (not super charger) 5 times, it really helped! Don't abuse the Super Charger and use common courtesy. At SuperChargers, I am 80% of the time sit in the car or stand nearby whlie it charge. I do not leave it charging and go have a two hours dinner or some movies. We all have access to the TESLA app and it does notify you when you are close to being full, so there should NEVER be an excuse for leaving it charge longer than needed. Tesla, as a company still have a lot of growing up to do. It is still in what I call the DOT.COM startup phase. It tries to be luxury car company. It price point it's car in the S class / 7 series price price point. With that you would assume you are getting top notch service at the service center. Especially when there are no dealers and all own by corporate, so must have better control over quality. That is a false. It is a hit and miss. However, like anything, be involve in the community to help it grow. Send your feedback constantly to corporate so they know and fix the problem. Just don't bitch about it and write negative post on YELP or TMC. With the Model 3 coming, the problem only get worst before it can get better. I love the Dual Motors, going up hill even with the 70D, is fantastic. Worth every penny! At the end of the day, owning an Electric Vehicle really changed my perspective on things and how I drive. Also having the bragging rights that after 17k miles, no gasoline or oil wasted is a pretty awesome thing to gloat about! Enjoy your Tesla and Keep the Tesla Owner Community Positive.
