Tesla is one of the most well known names in the modern day automotive industry. It is the leading automotive manufacturer for battery powered cars. Yes, that means zero gasoline usage. It is without question that the evil genius behind this company, Elon Musk, has done anything except the abnormal. Their brand released their first car in 2008 and today in 2020 it is one of the most popular and practical options you can get on the market. Tesla’s have entered the market from the top down as they are quickly on their way to meet the $20,000 to $30,000 price mark, but their most popular models are $35,000 and above.

The brand is most noted by their quirky leader, their long range capabilities under one singular charge, their surprising performance aspects, and their cutting edge technology. Currently, the Model S holds the record for the longest range on one charge which was 370 miles, but Elon claims 400 miles is coming soon and also claims that the coming soon 2nd gen Tesla Roadster will not only be the fastest production car, but it will also have a range of 620 miles which is absurd.

The Tesla Model S GPS Problem, and How to Fix It

Tesla Model S owners have reported a strange issue recently, the onboard GPS is getting stuck in a single position. Moving, not moving, charging not charging, the car on the GPS display never changes positions, even when the car is miles away, assumable stuck where the problem first occurred. If the owner tries to map a route somewhere the GPS begins it at the perceived point of the car and will not find the car at its actual location to properly map the route.

Tesla haters and electric skeptics all like to sight the same arguments when talking about why not to buy an electric vehicle. One of the big ones is “well what happens when you run out of power?” The answer is nothing really. You don’t unless you are extremely careless or unlucky.

I Am Not a Green Person, But I Bought a Tesla Model S

I think Tesla fans can be equated at times like that of sharks in a feeding frenzy. They attack with an amount of voracity that can at times be overwhelming.

Sorry to burst a bubble but that is incorrect.

Tesla Model S Wheelspin Is Limited Compared To Performance Cars

The shaft of the Tesla Model S electric motor inserts into an open differential gear box that then drives the two wheels. This gearing allows the outside drive wheel to rotate faster than the inner drive wheel during turns. Without this gearing either the inside wheel will rotate too fast or the outside wheel will drag.
