So I went to inflate my tire today, as I was removing the air, I realized something popped off and the air is not holding inside the tire, on the second look, the sensor stem broke off.... anyone else had the similar experience? I had to drive to the closest tire shop for help, they can only put in a rubber stem for now so I can drive it........it was not a good experience.

Assuming you didn't hit anything, which I'm sure you didn't, that is pretty unusual to have that happen. Guess it was defect in the material or the threads were cut such that it created a fracture point. I'm sure Tesla doesn't actually make that part, so would be supplier issue. Hopefully just random defect, which unfortunately happens from time to time.
