Except this time, the one on the driver’s door of our P85D didn’t pop out, leaving us no way to open the door from the outside. And significantly, the car wouldn't stay in Drive, perhaps misinterpreting that the door was open due to the issue with the door handle. We have observed other vehicles likewise prohibiting driving with a door open.
We’re far from the first Tesla owners to experience this problem. Our car reliability survey shows that doors, locks, and latches are the biggest trouble areas with Teslas and that the Model S has far higher than average rates of such problems.
“Model S’ connectivity paired with over-the-air software updates allow Tesla to diagnose and fix most problems in Model S without the owner ever coming in for service, ” said a Tesla Motors spokesperson via e-mail. “In instances when hardware, like the door handle, need to be replaced, we strive to make it painless for a customer to get their Model S serviced. ”
The good news: Getting our Tesla fixed could hardly have been more convenient. We called our local Tesla service center to have the car picked up and hauled 60 miles away to the service center for repair. But instead, the company sent a local technician to our Auto Test Center the next morning. Tesla maintains a fleet of repair vans with technicians to provide on-site service for minor problems. Such house calls are part of the Tesla ownership experience, available to all customers.
The technician diagnosed and repaired the problem quickly. Our car needed a new door-handle control module—the part inside the door itself that includes the electronic sensors and motors to operate the door handle and open the door. The whole repair took about two hours and was covered under the warranty.
Now that we can open the driver’s door and slide behind the wheel, our P85D is ready to start our formal test regimen. We’ll keep you posted on how it performs and let you know whether we have any more problems with it.fashion branding and communication outdoor bars porto coworking space outdoor christmas lights ideas shortage computer chips closing factories worldwide christmas message worldwide holiday insurance toolstation outdoor lighting international mens day 2022 coworking space stratford covid vaccination numbers worldwide communication with animals aetherius society business communication outdoor lights solar trending worldwide classy stylish womens suits stylish scarves christmas turkey stylish coats for women worldwide cadbury hide outdoor decorations izea worldwide stock coworking space kingston upon thames stylish shirt international travel news uk technical communication cbeebies bbc worldwide outdoor kitchen unit christmas movies on netflix outdoor stools non verbal communication in health and social care wilton international stylish ceiling fans worldwide weather newcastle building society log in 24 hours coworking space babcock international group the guernsey literary society royal mail worldwide postage how to improve communication skills in the workplace outdoor wall clock go outdoor coworking office dubai twitter trending worldwide communication tree fashion communication christmas 2022 large outdoor storage boxes stylish duke mansfield building society outdoor furniture cushions comfy stylish office chair logistics worldwide national 5 graphic communication communication for all coworking space nearby stylish mirrors phuket coworking space coworking space poole red band society stylish word golf society sheffield christmas market what is building society account coworking space paris cost of coworking space pace communication balsam hill christmas trees what was the royal society pilgrims friend society wilko christmas lights british exploring society stylish desks law society of scotland find a solicitor best dating worldwide snapchat stylish jubba design afro international tmp worldwide rbs worldwide mc international post tracking goldman sachs international stylish womens jeans coworking valencia christmas pajamas worldwide vaccinations microsoft-worldwide-telescope classy christmas acrylic nails international men day communication objectives christmas books stylish jackets for men law society check what is specialist communication in health and social care chrome stylish when is international mens day the hub milano coworking stylish frames for men's glasses international security expo coworking space bgc 51 worldwide games switch review christmas lights london international law coworking downtown brooklyn science communication jobs coworking in london london fields coworking cabury worldwide hide outdoor solar lanterns www.beautybay.com (free worldwide shipping) christmas stocking free coworking space manchester stylish mens sunglasses outdoor chimineas edinburgh christmas market the guernsey literary society cast coworking space list edinburgh international festival 2022 mens stylish suits good communication skills examples christmas wrapping paper civil society meaning argos christmas tree christmas dress funny christmas cards christmas jumper day outdoor wall lights black international hotels group worldwide hide last train to christmas coworking space maidstone visual communication examples international women day quote carta worldwide dog pen outdoor top 10 best selling whiskey brands worldwide effective communication meaning christmas bedding set barriers to communication health and social care large outdoor planters worldwide parcel stylish luxurious crossword clue allama iqbal international airport stylish mens haircuts north east autism society jobs virus worldwide communication is key quote stylish mens loungewear outdoor christmas lights for house sorbus international shoreditch coworking worldwide near me coworking space derby christmas trees near me importance of non verbal communication hue outdoor lights benchmark international
