    Numerous reports documented large numbers of powertrain failures in 2012-13 Model S but little has been said about this problem in current vehicles. Let's hear from owners of 2014 and newer vehicles. Powertrain problem fixed or continuing to occur?

    The "fix" for the powertrain was originally reported as drive swaps, then a $0.50 fix...

    I had my motor replaced at 25,000 miles and it's been good since (it's a 2013)...

    Haven't heard much on this since then, but it's something that is being tracked under the Pluginamerica Battery Survey that I posted about a few days ago.

    I too had my drive unit replaced at 43K miles. No issues since (that was 20K miles ago)
