So it seems I am in the hole for a new battery coolant radiator on my ModelS that is only a month old.
Noticed a puddle in the garage, and a warning light came on the dash.
Car had to be towed via flatbed to nearest service center. As I was working in the area later today, I swung by to see what they had found.
They told me a "small rock" must have hit the radiator, below the front bumper, and then took me to show me.
What I saw was a knick, no deeper than a 1/16th of an inch which they say was the problem..... Seriously?
Anyone else have a similar story, or am I just the lucky one?
Seems to be an awfully vulnerable piece of equipment, mounted 8 inches from the ground, on a vehicle traveling 80 mph daily.
