    Actually it was Autoweek. Jalopnik just reported it.

    I'd imagine Tesla is looking at exactly what happened very closely indeed.

    I have read on other forums of others having the same problem. I am having problems plugging in rather than plugging out, but with wiggling, it seems to work. I have been informed that there is a fix in the works, and I know Tesla will take care of any and all problems.

    Too bad the problem surfaced close enough for Jalopnik to be able to comment.

    I have had several other car makes in my lifetime (haven't most of you!) and the problem is when the company claims there is no problem and refuses to fix it. That has not happened with Tesla that I know of (other than perhaps Opportunity Consoles, and we really don't know if there is one coming thru Tesla, or if SoFlAuthor will be the main supplier).

    No; they had a very short blurb on the MT COTY award hidden away.

    I'd guess that didn't work in this case since the service tech had to take it apart.

    I am sure that if I tried hard enough I could pull and torque on the plug while it was locked in place causing it to get stuck.
