I have had the above car for 2 years now and
1. my range is ~180 - so a 14% degradation from the initial 207.
Is this normal? Tesla seems to indicate that though the system says is is 180 - it has "more" capacity - not sure what that means. Anyone else has a related experience to share?
2. Next, more recently the charging rate I get at a supercharger is around 115-125 mi/hr with a cap of 120A current. I used to get rates like 275 mi/hr just a few months back @240+A. Tesla is looking into the diagnostics but hasn't found anything wrong. They tried to tell me it was normal(!!) but I didn't buy it - how can such a degradation be normal? And at such rates, I can't make long distance trips - which is a key use-case for a car..:-) Overall, they seem extremely cagey and defensive about anything battery related.
Again, would like to hear similar experiences or suggestions? Tesla service is still debugging #2 - but wanted to post this to get feedback.
