Re: Moving On

They wont get sued. I guarantee the contract says they don't have to deliver a 35 k car and the price could change. It's refundable anyway. The reservation cotract doesn’t guarantee a $35k car. But, they might get sued for false advertising based on Musk’s previous comments. Also, it would be a PR ...

Re: Moving On

Not completely following you. I don’t expect a $35k model 3 to ever ship in more than token quantities. . When the press gave out all that free advertising it was all about "The $35k Tesla! Cheaper than a Bolt...". Do you remember that from way back then? The press went on and on about 'the afforda...

Re: Moving On

I ordered Late July and got it late August on the east coast. I was not a reservation holder. .. If you want a RWD model, odds are you could still get it before end of year and qualify for the full tax credit. So you are on the record that there IS such a thing as the highly publicized $35k Tesla M...

Re: Moving On

I ordered Late July and got it late August on the east coast. I was not a reservation holder. Only option I ordered was Blue color. I’m doing a trial of autopilot now and I’m glad I didn’t pay for it. Way too buggy for my taste. If you want a RWD model, odds are you could still get it before end of ...

Re: Moving On

Aren't u concerned that everything is controlled by the tablet. If the computer crashes u have no ac or radio and God knows what else. Also the poor workmanship of the car. Some peoples bumpers r falling off just driving down the road. No, I’m not concerned. If the BCM or HPCM2 (computers) in the S...

Moving On

So after almost 2 years driving my Spark EV, I traded it in against a Model 3 yesterday. It was a solid car, but if the battery degradation kept up at the same pace this would have been the last winter it would work for my use case. Decided to jump on the M3 while the full tax credit was available. ...

Re: Battery degredation

For those seeing low reported values (15-16kwh) at 30,000 miles, are you regularly charging the battery to full? I know the Volt has battery capacity calculation issues (and reduced actual range) if the battery isn't regularly charged to full. The car's computers really need to see full charge cycle...

Re: Battery degredation

I just used GDS2 to see what HPCM2 reports for my battery capacity. Also included are the previous measures I’ve made with GDS2. Degradation seems fairly linear.

07-29-2017, 11000 miles, 18.5kwh
12-03-2017, 16700 miles, 18.1kwh
07-26-2018, 25800 miles, 17.5kwh

Re: Battery degredation

The 2014 A123 battery uses a different chemistry than the 2015/16 LG-Chem battery. It's possible that it requires less cooling.

Re: Check Engine Light - Code P0713

Dextron VI compatible ATF is readily available. Should have no problem buying it at any auto parts store.
