How long have you owned your Model S? How many miles does it have?
I just had my first annual maintenance after racking up 10,000 miles. Wow, that was easy. This made me realize how truly low maintenance the Tesla is to own.
How did you learn about the car and what made you buy it?
I was driving a gas guzzling Range Rover and that was something in my life that seriously needed to be updated. I researched numerous E/V and hybrid options but when I discovered the Tesla, I was sold.
What are your favorite things about the car?
This car is so smart and so intuitive that it almost finishes my sentences. The auto suspension feature remembers even when I forget. The incredibly fast acceleration has gotten me out of trouble many times. It requires zero gas, zero oil and it has zero emissions, what’s not to love? The HOV lane access and Metro Express lanes in LA are priceless! It’s gorgeous to look at and comfortable to drive. Actually, it drives itself more often than I do not to mention parking itself. Also, I’ve never met a group of people more excited to talk about their cars as I’ve found with Tesla owners.
Have you done anything crazy with the car that it would be best for the CHP to not know about? (high speed, zero to 60 trials, racing an adjacent car, etc.)
This is CRAZY! (But the CHP wouldn’t care) I had a hitch installed to the rear of my Model S. Most people think this cannot be done but with some ingenuity, it can. You are probably going to ask what in the heck do I plan on towing, well my electric bike of course. When my bike is not in tow, I have a rhinestone hitch cover that can be spotted miles away.
