    Thanks, Jon--I was waiting for Tesla's response. Felt pretty confident someone would come through with a reasonable answer, eventually.

    I take it you're going to upgrade your 7.1 now? ;)

    Still staying on 7.1 as it is working g perfectly for us. Very happy that updating in the future will not enable the power reduction issue. Great news all around.

    Perhaps, in months when this is all verified.

    I was just lamenting how I hadn't fully charged my car in months. I took a friend for his first ride in a tesla today and he was blown away by the acceleration. I was only charged to 50% and was actually a bit meh about it.

    Performance disclaimer no longer appears on the Tesla ordering page.

    Kudos to Tesla Team for wise decision.

    Bolded section for those few people claiming that discussing it here was pointless.

    It's great that you listened and are doing the right thing, however I do hope Tesla realizes why their initial action was fundamentally flawed, and will avoid doing similar in the future.

    Wow, I could not have imagined a better response from Tesla. Assuming this goes forward as stated, it has totally restored my confidence in Tesla!

    +1. What a novel idea. Someone from Tesla actually posted a resolution to satisfy customers on the forums. Every time I suggested that Tesla should do this sort of thing people always shot me down, "that's crazy" "it will never work" "that's unprofessional." What say you now, naysayers?

    Actually this is the fourth or fifth time he's helped out people on this forum. I'm glad he's around and looking out for us customers.

    Oh That was fast, Fred has already posted a new article. Thanks. Tesla listens to customers and walks back all software performance reductions tied to frequent use of max power

    That looks like solved everything for now, but I think Tesla should be more open about this problem.
    Under warranty repairs are good, but what will happen after 4 years or 8 years warranty. Are all risky parts covered under 8 year warranty? After 8 years, what kind of repair bill is waiting for the owner? After 8 years, can owner voluntarily ask Tesla to reduce the power in order not to face huge repair bills?
