The first time I got this message was 2-3 years ago...I stopped the car and put it into park and then started up again
and all was normal.
Fast forward to about a week ago and it happened again.
Fast forward to today and it happened twice..and second time stopping car and
putting in park does not remove it.
Called Tesla and they assured me it was ok to drive the car this way. RWD works fine, not as much fun
but perfectly usable.
Checking previous entries about this it seems I'm in for a new front motor. I got a service appointment
for July 1. Should I call on Monday and get them to order a new front motor ahead of that time? Seems
dumb to bring the car in, they look at it for two seconds and then say "Oh that will be a week to get a new motor"
and leave my car sitting around for a week or two.
What you would do? Do you think it's a bad idea to drive the car like this?
