    I'm feeling like a slacker now - only 9400 miles in 9 months. (Do you people work??)

    Coming up on 20K at 3 years. Recently had my cooling pump replaced and 2 sheets of cells in the battery replaced. Apparently they were not performing properly. I am getting ~181 miles per charge in standard mode. Currenlty on the 3rd set of rear tires and about to replace original front ones. I don't drive hard, but am on hot pavement in Florida all the time.

    I'm at 23,308 miles in 2.5 years. I got a new battery pack at 13,885 miles due to multiple sheets "failing the bleed test" (whatever that means). Standard mode charges to 185 ideal miles. I haven't done a range mode charge since getting 238 ideal miles on September 1st (charging at 120V/12A at a hotel in Victoria, BC). Except for road trips, I charge at 240V/32A.

    I replaced my rear tires just under 11,982 miles with some tread above the wear bars. My second set tread is at about 2x the wear bars and the fronts are at least 3x. Perhaps my driving has mellowed a little. I have done less drag racing on the second pair, and the first pair was subjected to a track day with the local Elise club.

    I'm at 21,296 miles after 17 months. The car is going in to the Tesla workshop today to "replace a battery component that is failing". I do a lot of 200 to 300 mile daily trips. Standard mode charges to 176 ideal miles and range mode to 223, although both vary a lot depending on my driving/charging pattern.

    I've had two problems to date, a faulty indicator light (side of car), and a set of brake pads that disintegrated. I'm on my third set of rear tyres, but the front set are original and still have plenty of tread.
