I'm guessing the battery replacement year is wrong.

You'll probably be better off asking at TMC in the battery subforum (https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/forums/ ... rging.109/).

Yes, I meant 2018. I updated it.

It was just a rhetorical question. I was posting some info since the chat seems to be able battery life now.

As one tire shop employee said to another mechanic; "Hey, where do I put the floor jack to lift the front of this Tesla to remove the front wheel?".

What's up with the crazy drivers in Florida?

You give a teen driver a sportscar, don't be surprised when they do something stupid. Two friends of mine crashed sportscars when in high school, thankfully no major injuries. One a Porsche 944 Turbo, the other a Toyota MR2. Teens acting stupid, trying to impress their friends. This is exactly why "teen driver" mode exists on many cars.

Battery capacity loss--NOT!

I purchased a used model S85 from Tesla 21 months ago. Range charge gave 250 miles rated range when I got the vehicle. I have been charging to 50% five days a week as I only need to drive 40 miles and 125 miles of range is way more than enough. On Saturday I charge to 80% for a 140 mile round trip drive to Mt. Baldy. I only supercharged about half a dozen times. This weekend I did another range charge to see how much capacity I had lost, if any. I got 249 miles and the car had not quite finished charging but I had to leave. So no detectable capacity loss in 21 months! Beats the heck out of my 2011 Leaf that lost 4 bars in about 5.5 years!

Ok, so there is no user visible capacity loss, what about the loss you didn't get to see?

Wondering if they punctured the battery by running over something? Or, another battery gunshot by its owner or someone else? All just speculation at this point as to what may have happened until investigation has concluded.
