Jake is going to use my car for his test, so he used it in our practice today.

Chilling in the Tesla service center lounge while my Model 3 gets juiced on the Supercharger.

Finally picking up my car after a two week service appointment. Tesla has been fantastic through the whole thing. Just paid (through the app, of course) and am now waiting while they juice me up a bit before heading to work.

And then a little time with Teddy as I take him to the vet (regular, not emergency) for what will hopefully be his last blood draw, bringing his Advil scare to an end.

One of my tires has developed a slow leak over the last few months. It will hold a fill for a few weeks, but eventually starts losing pressure, slowly. I finally had a bit of time to take it in for a look today...on the jack she goes!

Running some errands with Teddy this morning. Tesla Dog Mode for the win.

I might as well do some Spring things while the weather allows it. Washed the winter off the car today.

There's a rattle in the steering column of my Model 3. It's probably two-and-a-half years old, so it seems like it's about the right time for the typical, minor annoyances to develop. It was sporadic when I first noticed it, but now it's constant - a steady hum when driving at a constant speed, and an increasingly louder grinding as regenerative braking kicks in. I'm fairly sure the housing is loose and a quick tightening (or carefully placed wad of paper towel) will fix it. Weekend project!

It's amazing. We buy cars based on performance and bells and whistles. And, over time, we're usually happy with all those things. Eventually, though, frustration with the entire car grows because of cheap plastic parts that have nothing to do with performance, bells, or whistles.

Well, a few weeks into my Tesla experience and I'm getting an overhaul. Service noticed an issue with the computer in my car - nav wasn't always working properly. Eventually they said a computer swap was the best fix. So, they sent someone to the house and he did the job in our garage! Easy peasy.

Parked next to another Tesla Model 3 at Costco this morning. Identical to mine.
