Quick summary. Picked up car in October.
For about a month, very high energy consumption. Tesla SC said they couldn't figure out what's wrong.
One day I stop car and smell burning brakes. Brake dust caked on to driver rear fender behind wheel. Right after, the consumption drops like a rock. Tesla SC said they couldn't figure out what's wrong.
One day I noticed high consumption again. Used IR thermometer and find the passenger rear rotor much hotter than the other three. Tesla SC said they couldn't figure out what's wrong.
One day getting on the highway, no acceleration. Slowly hit 50mph, which took well over 10 seconds. It did this three times in a row, with pulling off the road in between to check. When getting off highway, brakes felt like they let go and I almost rear end the car in front of me. Intermittently get what I thought were made alignment issues. Tesla SC says brakes must have a problem. The alignment issues most assuredly caused by brakes because it's not consistent. Tesla SC eventually said they can't figure it out.
2 weeks ago, pull out of bank drive through and have zero power again. Most severe event so far. Felt like I was driving my old 1985 Camry from college. Like a boat anchor dragging behind. Very loud grinding sounds. Drove 0.6 miles at over 1300wh/mi with consumption going up as I drive, before calling roadside assistance. Towed in. Tesla SC said they can't figure out what's wrong.
Photos and bug reports for all events.
I believe the brake hold feature is randomly coming on when it's not supposed to. The time I almost got in an accident, I believe the brake hold turned off right as I was slowing down.
Just got off the phone and they want me to come pick up the car again. They say it's working fine. It's not. I've already narrowly avoided one accident. I'm not going to continue to put the safety of me, my passengers, and others on the road at risk. Something is wrong with the car. It's intermittent. The diagnostics system isn't catching it as an error, so SC says nothing is wrong. I have passengers as witnesses the events are absolutely real.
Can't even get the SC manager on the phone because he's "busy." Anyone got a contact higher up?
