    By all means get a Defender. If you get a good one, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

    So, your Tesla charges whilst traveling. That's a long extension cord.
    Oh, and watch out for the constabulary, they won't be too happy if they can't catch you.

    He is referring to the fact that the Tesla S has a gauge on the central screen that shows Miles or maybe Km as the car is on the Supercharger.

    I still wonder if all Teslas depend on a cell phone signal for mission control to authorize the car to be supercharged or only those that have been deauthorized by Tesla.

    But maybe you know that and needed a sarc tag.

    I was surfing yesterday and came across a new Rich Rebuilds YouTube .

    The key info in the YouTube was that tesla is now deauthorizing cars that have been repaired by people outside Tesla authorized dealers from using the Supercharger system.

    This has been occurring even if the car has subsequently been inspected and repaired to Tesla's specifications by Tesla themselves.

    In addition Tesla has deauthorized the same cars from using fast charger systems outside of the Tesla system!

    The only method of charging the cars is to charge them at home or on a normal slow charger somewhere else. Of course this makes the car useless for a long trip anywhere .

    The question becomes"who owns the car?" The person who bought the car in good faith or Tesla, if they can despecify the car at their whim.

    I think this probably has a way to go in the USA courts, but may be a heads up to anyone offered a Tesla In Australia outside the formal Tesla system.

    The real story apparently is the free access is removed.
    The rebuilt vehicles owner must pay for the chargers.

    I can't see myself ever owning an electric vehicle, or even a hybrid, but there is no doubt that these vehicles have gained a huge amount of traction during the last 12-18 months.
    Tesla was originally viewed with derision, a massive loss making company, which would eventually go broke. There is no doubt that huge dollars & massive losses have occurred, but Tesla I believe is going to have the last laugh, as they are now making some very good, practical vehicles, including high performance machines that are very fast indeed.

    Well No . Not according to Rich who is probably the most knowledgeable Tesla owner in the World having rebuilt several and being allied to a bloke who can repair the displays and other problems. I don't know why he would distort the truth?

    To access the third party chargers you have to pay by credit card which is clearly shown in the RR video.

    His car would not connect to the third party system,and he has feedback from numerous other owners in the same position.

    Did you see the video?
    His point was "who owns the car?" how is it that Tesla can downgrade a vehicle after someone has paid for that vehicle.
    In any case if a vehicle has been safety inspected and modified by Tesla at sometimes a huge cost why has Tesla the right to despecify the vehicle?
    Regards PhilipA
