What year?
2022https://www.evseadapters.com/products/tesla-to-j1772-adapter/. 3100 miles used.

The GPS was nearly unusable as delivered so I connected to my home wifi and did an update. It said I had the latest version but it let me go ahead anyway. Took about 1/2 hour. Seems to be much better, but when I looked for Lowe's hardware it wanted to take me somewhere in Kansas. LOL.


Yah. Back in the 2016 day (or at least for us) we weren’t able to update the maps so glad you got it sorted out.

From what I gather they refined the suspension a bit in the last couple years. Ours was fine but felt a little understeerish going hard into a corner with all that torque.

Wife still misses it. Easier to get in the garage and easier to park than our model Y. Fun car.

Hey, not sure if this would be handy for you as it depends on what you do and where you go. Where we are there are a ton of Tesla destination chargers at hotels, golf courses, touristy places, wineries etc. If you find yourself going to these places and they don’t have the standard J1772 you can get one of these and utilize Tesla destination chargers. Remember, these are not superchargers. But they are handy. We sold it for what we bought it for after we sold the car.

Here is the link.

This is titled "Cost of EV batteries" and starts out with a comment of the F150 Lightning MSRP increasing $8500.00 across the board.

Then it instantly morphs to Bugattis, China, Ukraine, environmentalism, Nuclear waste, fender flares, gas pumps, Australia, Chile, Argentina, levels of chargers, J17772 protocols, PG&E power, Nissan Leafs, Carvana, Automaker market caps, and OEM navigation systems.
Nothing about wheel bearings, or lug wrenches?


Helpful as always. You should become a moderator.

Just that Calif is the biggest state pushing for EVs only and they can't supply enough power for daily use now, where is all the extra power coming from to charge all those EVs. Maybe and odd/even deal. If your house number is even you can charge Mon, Wed, & Fri, if odd you get Tue, Thur, & Sat, and your AC can run Sun.
Don't believe everything you read in the news. Maybe ask an actual EV owner that lives in CA.

Why not buy one without a battery and just rent a replaceable battery.

I don’t know. I think it will be a tough sell. Battery charging is just not that big a deal. The vast majority is done at night while sleeping and on a road trip charge times aren’t that far off typical break times that people take while on the road. Half the time we get the warning text that the charge is almost done before we are even ready. Everybody travels different of course but it wouldn’t be for us or anybody we have talked about it with.

But to each his own. I’m sure they’ll find a market.

And of course it’s all JMHO. Not an expert. [emoticon]

8.1 Van. It was Barry Sullivan that said 53% of car owners plan on buying a gasser and not EV for their next auto in spite of the manufacturers spending billions on making more EVs. The CNBC poll and his statement is toward the end of the report. I actually could care less about future of EVs as I like my go anywhere at any time gasser 2014 Ram 1500 with 32 gallon Mnium 320 mile range truck. See you at the Rodeo

I don't gamble in the stock market as no need to. Occasional 5 cent video poker at the big casino.

What a clusterf#$k.

The usual FUDsters are bored w life no doubt so come here to troll nonsense again [emoticon]

Tesla batts are guranteed for milion miles,how long is any truck or car powered w ICE good for ? [emoticon] [emoticon]

Check Reporterfy media travel chanel or Living in China to see what our media never tell you about that country.
Richard Augilar chanel is also good.

The New Atlas chanel and Jimmy Dore has good info on Ukr.
Rusia will win without a doubt.
