Last week I was driving on the freeway and experienced a complete loss of the ability to accelerate or maintain my speed. The car quickly decelerated and came to a stop as I attempted to navigate onto the shoulder of the freeway. I had a relatively full charge and never lost power to the computer screen. Has anyone experienced this? Cause? It was pretty nerve-wracking to be going 70mph one minute and have the car coast, under its own volition, to a complete stop with no ability to control the acceleration. After about 15 minutes of trying to "restart" the car, it final engaged and power returned to the accelerator. Thanks for any thoughts you have about this. Tesla did a remote diagnostic and couldn't find the problem. Going in for service later this week.
