See this article by edmunds this morning as part of their long term Tesla ownership:
Basically, the 12v battery appears to have died with practically no warning while driving on the freeway, and they couldn't even put it in neutral to push off to the side of the road! I've read about 12 volt replacements on the boards, but never about a drive time failure. This is scary and dangerous, and is worrisome in terms of planning a road trip through decidedly non-tesla country. Has anyone had an issue like this? If they did and were on the road, did tesla take care of getting you back on the road if you were in mid-trip?
One of the things I really look forward to doing with this car is road tripping. Things happen with ICE cars, but not like this.
