    I've seen a few TSB's over my time but this is more than a little concerning. Vehicles being shipped with suspension fasteners missing is pretty scary stuff. Stay safe my Tesla driving comrades.

    Yeah. The TSB on the chargeport door not being aligned is hillarious. Basically bash it with a hammer and then apply touch up paint. One of my cars doesn't have it flush. I asked the mobile ranger if he would do it for me. For once, I was "out of spec" but then he looked at me and said "do you really want me to bash your car with a hammer?" I told him that I am good being "out of spec."

    Couldn’t even get some free supercharging out of them for it or something?

    Model Y Standard Range is out starting at $56k CAD. 393km range. 0-100km/h in 5.6s.
    Available in 7 seater (2 rear seats are likely for small people).

    So close. drop that MSRP to $55K and make 7 seat standard and it would qualify for $5K rebate.

    Huge number of vehicles effected. Voluntary recall not done, NTHSA is still working. Thoughts and prayers if you own one of the impacted vehicles:

    I find it odd that they didn't aim for the $55k with 5 seat for the standard range. That would add a lot of incentive for people on the fence for a crossover. I would probably be interested in the Y SR if it qualified for the federal rebate.

    It's too bad that the SR+ are RWD

    I've been driving my SR+ this winter with decent studded tires and it's really not that bad. The traction control is very responsive. I've also been reading about the system in the AWD models and it seems that they don't use the front motor until rear wheel slip is detected or a high input is given from the accelerator pedal. So most of the time they are driving around on the rear motor anyway. I was also worried that the regen coming from the rear axle would destabilize the car, but the system seems smart enough to back off if slip on decel is detected. That's the same in the AWD models as they don't use the front motor for regenerative braking. The biggest downside I've found is that there isn't a way to reduce the stability and traction control very much beyond "slip start". It's very hard to get the back end to move sideways at all.

    Yep, this is my experience. You end up replacing rear tires faster, not because of the acceleration, but the decel (regen). Idiots on the internet and facebook don't believe me. If you use scan my Tesla, you can see the front motor rarely engages on decel.

    I’m no EIT. But braking the rear axle always works super well right?

    Sure does!

    There is always room for improvement I guess.

    That’s ok, Tesla is a tech company not a car company.

    I would be shocked if the rear tires got "rekt" from regen braking. It's not that strong; It's comparable to downshifting a high compression manual car. I was worried about it in slippery conditions, but honestly it's not like ripping the e-brake. If it slips, it backs off immediately. Modulating torque with an electric motor is very precise and has much less lag than trying to do it with the brakes.

    Funny, when I was having a run with benyl in not the greatest conditions, I saw his car fishtail/recover 7-8x at high speeds on a curve on cold wet roads. Was pretty sketchy to look at from behind (you know because I lost haha), battle of regen vs traction control there. I thought the road was black ice or something at the time. Was just shocked at how much regen there was to lose traction going 200.

    Ho. Lee. Fuck.
    That's unacceptable. But... I guess it's a very heavy vehicle. Can you get proper winter tires with a suitable load rating for these vehicles?

    Sooooo, I’m considering taking the plunge on one of these girls, any recommendations on model 3 vs s opinions? Rebates being offered/ less known ones? Winter issues being battery powered and all? Doos and do nots? New vs used? I commute quite a bit and am hoping for some solid opinions. I have an 08 gs350 awd right now, would it be worth the upgrade? Hit me up guys
