S85 Battery Degradation

That is very low. Was there a sudden drop that you can remember?

Yes, I lost 20 rated miles about a year ago, and the service center chalked it up to new software, but don't buy it. Im going to have my car serviced soon, so I want to be armed with as much information as possible before I bring it up again to service. That is my thoughts behind this thread.
 
I know this thread has been done before, but I am looking for some fresh data. For the S85 folks out there, whats your milage, and whats your 90% rated miles. I am at 101,000 miles and my 90% is 203 rated miles... That seems too low, but I want some more data points. I still love the car!! Appreciate the help! Cheers!!

s85 2014 83k miles 100% is 252-254miles depending on season and driving style. Battery is D pack

90% 226mi

Document everything, just in case you decide to take action(s).

I am in that process right now with my S60.

Good luck.
 
So, I brought it up to the service center again, and was immediately dismissed and told "well, degradation is normal in electric cars" Like I'm a total moron. Without even knowing who I was, or looking up my VIN, they just said, "Ya, thats normal"...... Which I am convinced it is not. How do I push the issue? Is there a question I need to ask, or some data I need them to pull to verify it? I feel a little in the dark on this, where I know something is wrong, but I have no idea how to prove it. Thoughts appreciated!

Two words, executive escalation.

submit it from your my tesla account, may take a week but it will go to the top and then come down to get looked at and fixed if needed.
