I suspect that is technically a customer service campaign (and a low priority one since going 130mph vs 155mph is extremely rare). Technical service bulletins (TSBs) are required to be published to NHTSA, but customer service campaigns are not and are only addressed when the owner brings it up as a problem (not proactively applied). This is common industry convention.More P85D problems for Tesla, check this thread:
My P85D doesn't go past 133MPH. I thought the limit was 155MPH?
Looks like there are a bunch of P85Ds out there with bad speed sensors that will not allow the car to exceed 133 MPH, yet Tesla is not notifying affected owners and letting them know about a service bulletin to address the problem. Some who have taken their car in for annual service also did not have the issue remedied by service, and only became aware of the problem when the car did not achieve the advertised top speed.
Tesla, why are you being secretive with your P85D owners and why are the service centers not proactively applying this service bulletin to all affected P85D cars?
Suggest P85D owners better test their top speed, it may be that you have other issues with Tesla than just the HP rating.
