Without a doubt, the best car I've ever driven and I want you to know that's coming from someone who has driven a 4Runner, a Chevy Suburban, a Ford 150 Panel Truck, a Pontiac Sebring and a 1972 Celica. So, wow!!
Love the guys at Queens service center in NYC. Happily they've given me 4 opportunities in the past 8 weeks to drop in on them. And because I understand the amout of territory they have to service and the fact that they're only an hour and a half away by train and subway I never ask for a loaner. This way I get to learn a lot more about the amazing NYC transit system. (My call)
So, I had the recall and a few finish problems that went undetected because we're all kind of blind and in a stupor the first month or so. My bad. I took the car in for some wind noise and a nose cone replacement due to my Thruway mishap with a discarded fender (Search for: Takes a Lickin) and I emailed them a few other things I wanted them to look at: AM radio antenna ground, Rear hatch align, silver molding on driver's side and driver's door alignment.
Got the call my car was ready and I gleefully headed to the LIRR and was there in no time (75 minutes). They assured me all was addressed and thanked me again for the snacks I brought them when I dropped off my car. (they don't take tips, but they do take cookies) The guys who were washing my car handed me my fob and I was off with a nosecone they didn't charge me for, attributing it to delivery mishap. Love those guys.
I get home and I see that the driver's door is still misaligned. Great. Get to see them again!! I called and emailed and they got back to me as soon as possible when the weekend was over and said they couldn't see anything wrong with the driver's door. So, because I love driving my car and I love having some place to go I took a ride on the longest parkig lot in the world (The LIE).
Got there and all my friends came out for a visit. When they saw I didn't bring more cookies their enthusiasm faded. I asked one of my faves to run his hand over the window moulding from the passenger door to the driver's door and see if he can tell what I meant. "Oh" he said. We all giggled about that. My fault for not checking it when I was there. I don't know why they didn't call for an explanation when they couldn't find the problem but they probably didn't want to talk with cookies in their mouths.
Told me that his body guy (George) would have to take a look which gives me another opportunity to bring my car to my buddies at Queens Service. It's all good.
I told them I am all caught up on the transit system so to please schedule another visit when I can have a loaner. It seems the going rate for a loaner is 2 pounds of cookies. Still cheaper to me than a train ticket so I'm pleased as punch.
No service scheduled yet. That George guy seems pretty busy which is good because as we know people who do quality work are always booked.
So, love my car, love the service and love life. Everything goes better when you own a Tesla!!
