Total Mileage Thus Far

~ 8000 miles in 4.5 months. had an inconsistently retracting drivers door handle replaced early on

i have seen a door pop open right after it was closed. I think the new handles should solve any issues like this

10200 since 12-1-12. But the car sat 6 weeks while I was in Colorado (3, two week intervals). So, I have been driving a lot. I have had no major issues. I switched from the 21 inch wheels to the 19" wheels because of a tire blow out. I cannot afford to be stuck out there.

7400 miles in about 5 months

-- Cracked windshield fixed
-- Alignment issue, still present :(

Overall, I feel I've been pretty fortunate.

5,300 miles in 3 months.

Haven't been bothered to go to a service center for anything at all. No rattles, squeaks, nothing.

Just a sporadic TPMS service message that goes away soon after; that can wait for the "annual" that looks to be a lot sooner than 9 months from now!

8000 miles in 6 months.

Had a rattle in passenger side near windshield. Pressed on the spot and it went away. Can't recall anything else other than self inflicted curb rash.

52 miles in 3.5 days. Which means I've driven only 37 miles. Averaging 10 miles a day. OK, I'm not ever gonna make any money back up in the gas-electricity cost differential at that rate :)

See, this is why I wanted the Model S to deliver BEFORE the baby!

Kidding aside, perhaps a "miles driven" column can be added to the delivery spreadsheet. Individuals can intermittently update it. It will help determine an average of some sorts per car per month, and we can try to obtain the total Model S miles per the OP...Unless Tesla is willing to help us with this (as in Voltstats.net)...

5,000 miles since Jan 17th. 2 Door handles sticking, resolved with software upgrade. Key Fob wearing on top. Other than that its been a solid car.

4500 miles and 4.4 made my fan run constantly. A hard reset and all was well. No real issues thus far and the car has been perfect.

Is anyone noticing a consistent decline in battery pack capacity yet?

I'm not sure what to make of it, but I *have* seen the maximum numbers for standard and range charge go down. It used to be 273 and 242 and now they are 263 and 238. But it's not like they slowly dropped to this. It seemed to happen at once, so it might have been coincident with the 2.4 software update, but I think I've seen postings from people on this forum who have 2.4 and still get the old numbers. My annual inspection is on 5/3, so maybe I'll know more.

1,025 miles.

Alignment/balance -- pulls to right
Right passenger front door handle -- door popped open once
Rattle in B pillar -- constant
Rattle near dash/front driver door area -- periodic (bumpy roads)
Carpet pegs/nails popped out after folding down second row seats
Couple computer resets

Have an appointment next week at Chicago to see what they can fix.

Otherwise, silent as the grave and fast as hell.

Maybe we need to start a highest lifetime average energy with 2000+ miles.
Not sure if that was directed at me or not, but I think we had a report of someone averaging over 600 recently. Definitely not a competition.

I blame it on the terrain. Here's my daily commute (with ~2 miles off the chart to the left). This is a capture from today, which was one of the most efficient Wh/mi I've seen for a daily work roundtrip:

And no, I'm not going 5mph at the 14 min mark and 130mph at the 2 min mark. There's a hill involved. :) Today we had 50+ F weather and partly sunny.
