There has been a flurry of recent issues about 2015 and earlier TESLAs being vulnerable to complete system fail presumably in regards complete loss of capacity of flash memory storage due to excessive data logging.
Two links (among many) are provided below.
This presumably requires a not inexpensive replacement for cars out of warranty, plus the nuisance of potentially having to have a vehicle towed to a service center.
At this point, it seems difficult to sort out fact from faction on this issue, and I haven't seen it discussed in this Forum (although perhaps I missed it).
Questions I have include:
If it is an excessive data logging issue, can some of the data logging functions be remotely disabled to minimize the likelihood this occurs?
What are the factors of vehicle usage that lead to this being likely to happen, total amount of mileage driven, mileage driven in new locations, something related to multimedia usage?
Can TESLA provide a report to customers regarding available storage with warnings regarding minimum time to fail?
