Tesla just quietly increased their price by $500
https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... 00.177512/

Given this happened and off-menu SR became $35,400 per https://electrek.co/2019/05/14/tesla-mo ... ses-price/ in mid-May 2019, I wonder if that means it's now $35,900 not including tax and $1,200 destination & doc fee?

^^^ I'd thought about posting a link to this story (on IEVS) yesterday, but electrek had the same story back in October, which made me wonder why IEVS and other sites only mentioned it now.

I was considering getting a model 3 this year before the credit expired as someone was interested in taking over my lease on the Leaf. The deal fell through but I had reserved a base standard range model 3 knowing I could cancel before delivery if things didn't work out.

Long story short, I ordered in mid November 2019 (would have been delivered about now) and it was not $35,400 it was $35,000 even. I don't have any screen shots but I remember being really surprised when I saw that because I had read it was going to be $35,400 and the Sales Advisor had told me it would be $35,400 but when I went into the configurator it was only $35,000. The standard range package knocked $1,400 off the SR+ price and then removing autopilot knocked another $3,000 off.

Anyway to keep Tesla from collecting and tracking your data/location.
Doug, did you ever get an answer to this part of your question?

The answer is yes, you can disable data and/or location sharing.

Our Tesla Model 3 Suffered a Catastrophic Failure While Parked
https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a3036 ... le-parked/
Not only is this the first time we've ever had a long-term car suffer a catastrophic failure while parked, it's also an extraordinarily rare case of any car leaving us stranded, something unacceptable for any new vehicle, particularly one that costs $57,690 and with merely 5286 miles on the odometer. Even our problem-prone Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio was at least able to limp to the dealer following each one of its numerous issues.
...
Our opinion on the service experience hasn't improved much in the subsequent days. We heard back on the afternoon of the 26th that our car was in the queue to be diagnosed, but there was no time frame given for how long that might take. After a two-day wait, we were informed that there are issues with the rear drive unit, the pyrotechnic battery disconnect, and the 12-volt battery and that they are waiting for parts. Again, no estimated time was given for when we might be able to cease scrambling for backup transportation.

I think that Tesla still operates on the assumption, left over from the S, that while your Tesla is in the shop you'll just drive the other $50k+ car(s) in your garage.

Interesting thought. They clearly reneged on https://www.tesla.com/blog/creating-wor ... -program-0 starting a few years ago. Seems like it was quietly done w/no announcements and is totally became totally YMMV in terms of what they might provide.

A co-worker with a 3 long ago received a Chrysler 300 rental as a loaner which he felt was a terrible car. He finally was able to turn it back in for a loaner Model S. From a quick Google for site:teslamotorsclub.com uber credits, it seems like they've been providing Uber credits.

This is the first time we've ever had a long-term car suffer a catastrophic failure while parked, and also the first time we've been alerted to our being stranded by a push notification from a mobile app.

Do you read this thread page before regurgitating? LOL. Another sensational headline. There is nothing catastrophic, and they don't know the actual issue but it makes good click bait. My LEAF had a catastrophic HV failure the first month and was not drivable. Had to be towed to the dealer and I was stranded 60 miles from home (my range limit ) In fact many did, anyone remember that? No, because CD did not have one nor would they care because a car with one magazine had an issue it becomes more Tesla click bait. I guess this is like all the thousands of 3s with failing drives that never happened? Did we forge that scandal? How about the prolific 12V battery issue on here that never happened but did on the LEAF? More nonsense. I wish I had a dollar for every car i see broken down on the side of the road with new dealer plates. Catastrophic, LOL. just like the fuse that tripped on a 3 that became "massive motor failures". Well there goes the stock price again... I love this free advertising as Tesla just sold out of M3s this year and can't even deliver all the cars they sold.
