Visited my first SC station today in Buellton California. I was very excited to make my first visit.
There are 8 stations and when I pulled in there was only one other MS. I pulled in three stalls away from the other driver to give him his space.
Another MS with an elderly couple pulled in and parked right next to me. We decided to walk over and have pea soup at the world famous Anderson Pea soup. As we were walking away I saw the passenger get out and open the back door and start rifling through her belongings in the back seat.
What is worse than swirls from a machine car wash, DINGS ON YOUR CAR!
Upon returning to my car, I had two brand new dings in my back door! I guess when the women couldn't find what she was looking for on her side, she came over to my side and let the door swing nice and wide.
So now the question is, stay in your car while charging to defend against folks with little regard, or take your chances.
I wish folks had more regard for other peoples property. I realize that this could happen anywhere, but as a Tesla owners I was hoping that it wouldn't happen while charging my car at a Tesla station.
