My new Model 3 (2400 miles) died a few days ago.
I was leaving for work & I couldn't get the car to operate.
It displayed 2 errors:
1. Rear motor disabled (exit & re-enter car - may restore operation).
2. Car shutting down (pull over safely)
When pressing the brake the car would make a clunk & spinning noise in the rear
sort of like when a bad transmission switches gears.
The help desk tried to help out with no joy & eventually had to have the car towed.
It's at the service center awaiting a new rear motor & harness.
The good thing is that it happened while under warranty & I have a nice
Model S loaner.
The service department was very courteous & helpful. I sure hope this is
just an isolated issue.
