Day 3 of owning my new 2017 Tesla Model s 60w. I fully charged it and drove the next morning (0430)to Coronando CA (from LA) for military duty. I arrived on base 134 mi trip (0645) with 21 miles left. Had to do a little driving on base for lunch and go to the one and only Charge Point on base for 2. One was perpetually occupied and the other staton was broken. Now I'm stressed i have 14 mi left and the closest Supercharger is 18 mi away. After my work day, I drove to a Blink station on the island and charged it to 23mi, Shirley enough to make the 18mi SC. I got a warning to drive less than 55mph to make it. Then 5 minutes later (as i was going uphill) the car said i was 1% then 4% short. I pulled off the Freeway and found another Blink station. Charged it for an hour. Now i had enough to go to the SC, which, by the way is 36 miles out of my way round trip. I went to the ONE AND ONLY SUPERCHARGE STATION IN S/W SAN DIEGO COUNTY Sorreno Valley. I had to wait 20 min in line to get to a free charger. Now I'm heading back to the Base A 5 HOUR 4 CHARGING STATIONS LATER, back on base for the night.
My dream car has become a *()(*U curse.
