    I have definitely overplayed in my car. I didn't know I could get a refund. I need to go play some more. ;)

    Sorry but I disagree. Everyone has a spell checker these days, that is the bare minimum of QC that should be applied. There were many spelling errors throughout the article, and not just typos that made one word into other word that a spellcheck might not pick up. Absolutely no excuse to let that happen.

    To me it says the author doesn’t care about the impression they are creating, and if their attention to detail is that poor, then what else in the article is wrong? It just undermines the whole thing, which otherwise would have been a reasonably good article.

    My experience with cabin heat is that on the sunny day, the roof window *is* hot and transmit a lot of heat. It doesn't matter if the cabin temperature is at 20C, the temperature just underneath the glass makes it uncomfortable.

    IR film there would help, but the cost is pretty high and not all film installers are happy to put film there.

    I was thinking of putting on a retro Louver. Anyone thinking the same? I already have the quarter window ones.

    I have actually noticed that synch mode on the AC is a fail. It won’t go cold on the other side if one side is set high. I will complain about this. Everyone else’s work the same?

    Who needs to read a review once car is driven? Drive it enjoy. Ignore the reviewers. Most of what they have said is rubbish in the past. Haven’t experienced half of what was written...

    Agree, this article is littered with errors and poor sentence structure...

    Auto is pretty crap really. I'm yet to understand the logic on when it decides to increase the air flow or not. I typically have to manually adjust it because the temperature in the cabin is way higher than what I set it to.

    Eg. regardless of the temperature I set it at (typically 21), if it's hot outside, I'll be hot in the car and if cold , I'll be cold until I manually increase the air speed.

    And if it's cold, I must bump the temperature to around 24 to feel the heat.

    Thanks Melbourne for temperatures ranging from 5 to 25 in a single day, so always fiddling with the temperature settings. annoying.

    Agree. Not sure if the glass is the culprit though, or if the 'Auto' mode just isn't aggressive enough with the cooling. If I'm starting from the garage it tends to do well. But if I park the car outdoors around midday and then get back in the AC is all like:

    It never seems to kick up the fan speed to deal with the excess heat. Doesn't seem like a temperature setting thing, as if I manually dial up the fan speed it'll cool down the car quick enough. It just seems too reluctant to do that on its own.

    I got in touch two ways, not sure which one worked. The first was to call the roadside assistance number. The second was to log it in the App. I'm not sure if your problem qualifies as a "roadside assist" issue (mine was the 12V battery error) and so that's maybe why you are being directed to take it in which unfortunately means Sydney. I believe there are plans for a service centre in Canberra soonish according to the Tesla supercharger map.

    Zac did mention that he keeps an eye on this forum and he may be able to DM you to offer help if it is now getting to him by the regular channels.

    Those of you in Tassie - another future owner just posted on Facebook that she got an email from Tesla confirming that her car is now in the state and getting processed before her scheduled delivery of Oct 21-25.

    Just like the rest of Australia they forgot that Tasmania existed, discovered them after using sophisticated technology called Google Maps and did them last.

    On the other hand we can generally guarantee that the cars will be running on renewable energy here though! Ah well - just glad that my delivery date is finally almost here.

    Well only around 8 people live in Tasmania making it pretty easy but theres always a silver lining!
    On the other hand it is a beautiful place so it will be really nice to drive through.

    Unfortunately there is a grand total of zero superchargers in Tassie so it might make it a bit slow but theres other alternative charging methods too.
    I believe Chargefox is doing some work down there shortly too.
