    Just remember that these cars explode sometimes. And don’t start with that “gas cars also start on fire” garbage. While there is a possibility of a gasoline car starting on fire, it is lower then an electric car. Gasoline itself won’t just randomly start on fire, there has to be an ignition source such as a spark or heat. And even when gasoline does start on fire, it doesn’t cause an explosion. Whereas a lithium ion battery will start on fire if exposed to air or impurities in the battery composition, and usually it winds up with battery cells shooting off and exploding. Now all the EV fanboys will argue that you charge your phone inside your house and you don’t die, well a phone battery is measured in milliamp hours, which is a fraction of what a Tesla battery holds. Having blown up phone batteries before, there is a significant amount of heat released. If a battery cell in a car blows up, then it will begin setting the ones next to it on fire creating an explosion. Now phone batteries don’t explode all the time because they have gone through quality control checks, but even then quality control can only do so much, look at the note 7. And considering that Tesla quality control is garbage and Tesla build quality is garbage, I would not feel comfortable parking this thing in my garage.

    Ya donkey. (Kidding) You need to hold down one of the scroll wheels and select the vehicle option. Then put the car in drive and it will show your tire pressure.

    With tire pressure problem simple: burnout

  • DiccTatter

    Dont know if anyone out there thought of it but if you go get your tires filled with nitrogen they dont expand or condense with heat or cold. Truckers use that for working in the negative degree weather. Also great for long highway driving in the heat. As the tires head up from friction they wont expand and soften as fast from the expanding on regular o2 air

    They are a warm weather cars -20 and they start using the juice. -35 they are froze to the ground. Best to have an old winter ice beaters.

    The term is *Goddam Volt*(GDV). They also alarm when you unplug them, even if they're fully charged(thanks GM!). Of course, it could be worse (KIA Soul), where the connector is *locked* to the car, until the car is unlocked. Hey, are there other "modern" cars that tell you which tire is low? Not on our 2010 Subaru... Get the 220v charger, silly.

    Hi bro, I have a 2016 Tesla Model X 90D 7 seaters. Is it possible to remove the 2nd row seat to make it 6 seaters. Obstructing Rear view mirror. Tesla has a wierd seat manuFUCKturing line. No storage on that 2nd row besides that little cup holders behind the console. Them chairs' thick shiny back walls make no sense whatsoever.

  • 5%CMON

    So are you supposed to turn on the seat heaters before you get in the car or the air heaters?

    Go to Harbor freight and buy a car port canopy. Run a duct from your laundry vent. And cover the top of your car with an electric blanket. Cut the wind off the car, plus keeping the internal temp down should help. I grew up in Northern Michigan in a town called Pellston. ( The Ice box of the Nation ) we would do this to help keep our cars warm. So that they would start when we needed to use the cars.

    Basically I took from this not to buy a Tesla if you live in an area that gets snow on a frequent basis during the winter. If you live in the south or out west you’re good but northeast and east coast folks really shouldn’t purchase.

    1:58 - No, most cars do not do that. I've lived in Minnesota my entire life. I have not had a single car give me a 'low tire pressure' light during the cold BECAUSE of the cold. This includes the most recent winter when the ambient air temp got down to -30 in January, no problems in my Subaru Outback.

    I can tell you the problem. Tesla figures its purchasers are relatively intelligent enough to be savy and have some kind of knowledge on electricity conservation, basic understanding of thermal dynamics, and basic math, and a little bit of actually giving a shit. Tesla typically curbs this IQ ratio by pricing their cars above what the typical average person would pay for a car, assuming relative intelligence yields relatively decent jobs to pay for the car (: Funny intro though, lmao Leaf's cant make it to the mall!

    I can go to gas station and oh what ya know another 400 miles in 5 mins to fill up. You cant once its dead its dead. oh shit wait the closest charging station is 50 miles away yet damn no thanks. Until technology improves on battery's i'm not interested! plus I don't have to worry about heating or cooling either in the winter. Also hell of a lot cheaper to fix my Chevy than that Tesla. I bet my engine outlasts the battery bank in that car good luck there goes 7k$ to 11K$ to replace the battery bank once it gets dead cells. Plus fast charging kills the battery bank and causes dead cells a hell of a lot faster than slow charging. He mentioned 20F and the issues start happening. Around here it gets -10 sometimes -20F the damn thing would be dead in 100 miles no thanks.
