The "E" and the "I" aren't even close to each other!!

KOL2000 | 17 juin 2013

1100 miles, 1 month, no problems only pure bliss.

Mark K | 17 juin 2013

1,000 miles of flawless, thrilling performance. Wife is loving it.

shop | 17 juin 2013

4,500 miles, no problems other than pano roof gasket needing to be reglued. Loving it. Will buy another, and another...

herkimer | 17 juin 2013

1500 miles, only a minor problem with Bluetooth not importing contacts to Tesla from iphone. Fixed remotely in 15 minutes. Flawless, including prompt courteous service. Still a magic carpet every day! Hours of pure bliss. Model S is one BEAUTIFUL car!


3500 miles and 5 trouble free months. I feel so lucky after reading the through the forum on a regular basis. Then again with 10,000+ cars on the road the number of complaints is pretty small for a new car.

Andrew_OH_S60andS70D | 17 juin 2013

A little over 6,000 miles. The only problem I had was with one of the door handles. A Tesla Ranger came out and fixed it within an hour, and wasn't even wearing his mask!

lolachampcar | 17 juin 2013

5K miles in four months without an issue. Sold and patiently waiting for its Red/Black P85+ replacement.

J.T. | 17 juin 2013


Now my post doesn't make any sense.

Well, I guess it fits in with the rest of them.

LarsT | 17 juin 2013

11.000km in 62 days - half in the US, half in Europe - no mechanical or electrical problems, but a little stress crack in the windshield :-(
But the car is awesome even on the German Autobahn. You can easily cruise at or above 170 km/h and enjoy a great handling and still decent milage. EVERYBODY loves it - had more that 200 people riding with me or test driving the car themselves.

I made trips throughout Europe with, but I cannot tell you how much I wait for the first SuperChargers to arrive here!

wcalvin | 17 juin 2013

Just think of other new car companies' initial models: Yugo, Hyundai, etc. Getting the MS right is quite an accomplishment.

DocDog | 17 juin 2013

4 months, 3500 miles, one contact with service because AT&T had a network problem and Slacker wasn't working.

While the novelty of the vehicle and the unique design makes you wonder what surprises may be in store, it appears that for nearly all of us, we will just enjoy our daily drives much more than we ever had.

Recent conversation with friend who is an owner of an 8 year old Audi S4 which has provided relatively maintenance free driving reminded me that the real difference for us Tesla owners will be down the road. We won't be worrying about valve seals/piston rings/fuel injector system/transmission after a decade of driving. The MS will continue to purr along just as reliably as it does today. Remarkable.

lolachampcar | 17 juin 2013

Nice work!

GettingOldFast | 17 juin 2013

2.5 months, 3500 miles, no problems... I'm calling DIBS on the first GenIII reservation!

hademarco | 17 juin 2013

5 months and 6000 miles blissful miles. Also just came back from a road trip from LA to Palm Desert ~150 each way, no issues. I want a Model X, but can't afford it after the S purchase. Maybe GEN III.

sia | 17 juin 2013

850 miles in 16 days: absolutely no problems!

DerronC | 17 juin 2013

3000 miles in 1 month, no problems.

bradslee | 17 juin 2013

180 days and absolutely no problems. No doubt it is the best car in the world today.

DouglasR | 17 juin 2013

Since December 11, no problems worth commenting on.

bobinfla | 17 juin 2013

Four months, no problems worth a mention.

billbaggy | 17 juin 2013

6 months, 12,000 miles, no significant issues to speak of - Priceless!

All minor ones are software and have been addressed or will be addressed, which is more than I can say for any other auto maker I have dealt with or heard of.

DC@Tesla | 17 juin 2013

1200 miles of pure joy and no mechanical or electrical issues. Have had to reboot twice.
(But watch your 21 inch wheels and raise the car when parking).

mdemetri | 17 juin 2013

2500 miles and ~3 months; only minor issue with TPMS. Loving it more every day.

Mark Z | 17 juin 2013

Over 9000 miles and six months. No towing, no battery issues, always arrived on time (before other drivers because of the HOV lanes!)

I did have one stop today on the road. To help a lady who ran out of gas in her ICE car! She said, "Your car is electric!" Her cell phone was dead and she asked if I could charge it in my car. I explained, "Your car battery is fine, it still has power if you run of of gas!" Problem solved.

diegoPasadena | 17 juin 2013

4 months, ~5000 miles - not a thing. Oh, I think once I had to press the door handle twice.

inverts | 18 juin 2013

3 mo 6K mi, nothing to worry about. Finally ran into my first fellow MS owner in person at the restaurant valet in LA. "How do you like your blue one?" "[Rave]" "We love our white one". [Rave, rave, rave].

xradr | 18 juin 2013

6K+ miles. No complaints. Still have the tesla grin ...

KendallPB | 18 juin 2013

4+ months, 6000+ miles, and no complaints at all! Had two "Tesla Time" moments in the past two days (that's a lot, for me)--very amusing. One was a guy walking up to me saying "do you totally love it?!?!?!" The other was someone going to Costco who had seen me park and asked Qs until we were in the store and going in different directions. His wife just smiled indulgently at us. ;-)

Andre-nl | 19 juin 2013


It's OT, I know, but can you post your real-world Wh/km @170 km/h. What would you estimate to be the range at those sort of speeds?

Tesla-David | 19 juin 2013

Five months ninteen days (4,500 miles)of unadulterated bliss. Drives like a dream and can't seem to lose my Tesla grin. After settling down and learning how to more efficiently drive this incredible vehicle, I have averaged 286 w/mile over last 1000 miles.

sflahert | 19 juin 2013

Picked up 5/9. 4,200 perfect miles in 6 weeks. Drove from Boston to DC over Memorial Day and tried the SuperChargers in CT and DE. Wow! This is the best damn car I've ever owned! I've definitely purchased my last ICE.

GLO | 19 juin 2013

7,500 miles of bliss so far, flawless! Ready for the Model X!!!

MR.T 75 | 19 juin 2013

1532 in 10 days and no problems!! I love ridding my black lightning!!

jeffaa | 19 juin 2013

1,500 miles since May 7th, nary a problem. We close to putting in a reservation for Model X (to replace our minivan!!!).

AmpedRealtor | 2 juillet 2013

Thank you for putting this list together, this offers a great counterpoint to all of those "I'm suing Tesla over my problems" threads that are popping up here and there. Due to the "internet amplification effect", forums tend to be predominantly skewed towards problems because when people have issues they naturally seek help through the forums. But the converse is not always true, that satisfied and happy owners usually don't come online to gush about their satisfaction.

I watched a video where someone stated that current vehicles coming off the line have better sound insulation and generally improved build quality. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

brandtlings | 2 juillet 2013

3000 miles in 3 and a half months. Zero problems! Taking delivery of #2 (P+) at lunch today, I think I'm as excited as for #1! (P)
Wife's excited too! Grin won't go away, not that I want it to...

GReese | 2 juillet 2013

1,500/3 weeks. All is good.

kback | 2 juillet 2013

1200 miles, 4 weeks, all good except for the initial TPMS warning that resolved with firmware update. Best car ever. Still grinning!

tobi_ger | 2 juillet 2013

Have any of you owners been asked yet, which plastic surgeon put that neverending smile on your faces? :)

blisSfullee | 6 juillet 2013

3 weeks. 600 miles. Still pure bliss and I live the car more every time I drive it. I picked mine up June 22. Blue 85, pano roof, tech pkg, air suspension, tan interior.

B.Noing | 6 juillet 2013

6,800 flawless miles so far. A first in 40 years of car ownership. Congratulations Tesla.

fawu | 6 juillet 2013

1200 miles. No issues at all. Never before enjoyed driving this much.

cerjor | 6 juillet 2013

9000 miles in 6+ months. Only problem was with the UMC which was quickly replaced. Love it

fuellss | 6 juillet 2013

early 2k miles in 2 weeks. We are car people. We have many different cars including high end cars. This car is the absolute best car we have had. This is best car ever made on so many levels - IMO I am so impressed that I am thinking of selling my dream car - 63 split window corvette. Something I would not had thought of prior to getting our Model S.
There will always be the "I will sue you" people but I have not seen this with owners of these incredible cars. Forums are often times the place for negative people like to bitch and moan. If you are not happy with your MS then there is more wrong the just the car in your life.
I will never buy another new ICE.

fuellss | 6 juillet 2013

Sorry for the spelling and grammar

lolachampcar | 7 juillet 2013

Tesla REALLY needs to sticky this. Forums are for solving problems but potential owners need to be exposed to the frequency of issues and this thread provides balance.

defmonk | 7 juillet 2013

3,000 miles, no problems (other than my spouse is now lobbying for a Model X).

tobi_ger | 7 juillet 2013

+1 lolachamp

Shesmyne2 | 7 juillet 2013

4,900 miles, 7 months, two service visits for due bill items and minor corrections.

Changing sig:

Always grinning!!

blisSfullee | 8 juillet 2013

3 weeks 800 miles no problems. Loving it more everyday. I had Mercedes and Lexus and several classic cars before--Tesla MS is the best car I've ever owned. Glad I spent the money.
