Who would leave their car at an airport for 6 weeks?
Not me, but in any case it is not true. My car loses up to 1% a day but 0.5% a day is typical.
I have had to leave my car in an airport for extended periods before.
Anyway, I apparently wrong on the Vampire drain so my apologies. I'm not sure where I read it but I was under the impression that the vampire drain is much higher than it is. Seems to me it was on the Tesla Forum. Regardless if you guys are not seeing this issue it makes me happy as we plan on replacing our smart next year with a Model 3. It will be my wifes car. I'll continue to drive the leaf. We are getting the long range. AWD, white, white interiour, EAP, upgrade wheels. Its only money.
