Didn't see a link to a video...? I should go hunt youtube?


....[found] yeah, looks a little 'sparky'. I like the bit where some separated bit of battery pack on the road just goes up like a firework!! woohoo!

Y'know, that obviously doesn't look like a ICE fire would look, but it looked no worse than I would expect if a fuel tank had ruptured in that sort of crash. Hammer any >2 ton car like that at 100 mph into two pieces and I don't think anything unexpected happened there.

I've never rebooted the bluetooth, is that really what it says?
Maybe at one point, but not in the current software. I had to try. :D

To check, reboot the center console and hit the Bluetooth icon while it's still gray.

I drive a Volt and force to charge daily next to two Teslas. It is killing me.

Why?, because we have three charging stations and we use them all. And, because I looooooove the Tesla and they r not in my budget at this time. Not hating at all!

The other question is why does a Volt need to charge anyway? That's why they lug around that big, heavy, smelly, inefficient ICE and the carcinogenic, highly-flammable gasoline in the first place. ;)

It's what comes up after a Bluetooth crash. I'm not sure if you can manually invoke it...

Seriously, I was just paying a complement about the Tesla and you had to add such a idiotic comment, smh.
