    With time, more & more Model S owners start sharing their experience with their car... Thought I would open a new thread to capture those reports, with all positive aspects ... as well as areas for improvements...
    here is one from Electric Jen at Teslarati:

    Or you can just follow my posts in my blog...

    Two weeks after Model S pickup...

    One year and 25,000 miles of Model S ownership...

    Two years later I was busy with helping expand the West Coast Electric Highway, so I didn't post about the Model S, but did write about EV ownership in February 2015, 2 years and 4 months since we picked up the S, but four years since we went electric.

    Three years of Model S ownership was just last month and I did write a post about it.

    So, if you're interested in Tesla ownership experience, ask, or read my blog, as a bonus, we also write about Roadster experiences there (as a second, CPO owner.).

    Now, if you are persuaded and decide to take delivery of an S or X now, save $1k USD, £750 GBP, or whatever the program is in your jurisdiction. Here is my referral code.

    Very interesting feedback - with EU perspective - from Dutch Model S owner (P85) after 3 years & 129k kms...
    Key takeaways:
    - 73% charged @ home with avg. cost <€0.03/km (free SC of course)
    - NO service costs except for tires replacement (he did not mention brand... :p)
    - reserved 2 Model ≡'s & looking forward to Autopilot...
    Clearly not going back to ICE! ;)

    Wow. Sh... happens, I guess. Weird thing is his electric skateboard was malfunctioning the day before because of a loose wire... o_O
    Trust we'll hear 'bout what happens next... since this is a daily blog (of 'vlog' as he calls it...). Keeping our fingers crossed for James... :)

    To wrap up this story, @Gilberto Pe-Curto ... turns out not as bad as expected... with a relatively reasonable bill (£550) for James' car, out of warranty...

    Also moving these messages to the relevant thread...

    My blog is all about my life with my Telsa:
    http://teslaliving.net
    I tend not to do anything related to news or non-Tesla stuff.

    Lots of posts there on early learnings of living with an EV, Tesla and a bunch of my own dumb mistakes :p

    James is cool, been watching his videos for a long time. It did miff me a bit that he was talking about selling the Model S though. If you've not seen his older stuff he bought TSLA stock early on and made enough to buy a Model S but he seems to have strapped himself in the process and can't afford any maintenance on it. It's a luxury car with a luxury price tag on it so naturally its expensive to fix the wear and tear that happens. It's why you don't buy a used Jaguar instead of a Hyundai as the repairs are nuts.

    How about a little gender diversity, straight from the Netherlands, since Model S owners' feedback tends to come mainly from middle-aged men... ;)
