    Any Cleveland Ohio Model S Rervation Holder out there ready to build?

    I have received information that there are perhaps 28 cars on reserve in our area. Since there is no Service Center very close and all cars will have scheduled maintenance trying to figure out if a)Tesla may actaully set up service centers remote from the big cities, or if b)we could convince Tesla to have a ranger dropped in from somewhere where may appointment could be takne care of at once.

    Teslea is reluctant to give out personal info for the holders. I do know that there is someone in my City of Pepper Pike- but that's all.

    Also would like ot discuss general uniquenees of our environment, its effect on cars, and what like minded people are doing to take care of these matters..

    Anyone in?

    Welcome to TMC! Glad to see a fellow NE Ohio member chime in.
    I assume you're on the reservation list for a Model S. If so, care to share your status (Prod vs. Sig, have you configured, expected delivery date, etc.)?
    If in fact there are 20+ Model S's coming to this area I say we should start a local Tesla club!

    I'm expecting delivery of my car in October (Sig 729) and I know of another Sig holder who should be getting his by the end of August if production/deliveries stay on pace. Other than that, I know a Roadster owner in Chagrin Falls and I see someone from Mentor has a Model S reservation (if you haven't yet, check out this thread set up by Robert.Boston, nice wiki-map with Model S and X reservations, add a marker for yourself if you wish: World Map of Model S Reservation Holders).

    I understand Tesla's reluctance to share info on other reservation holders due to privacy concerns. For now it's up to us to find a way to establish contact with each other, and TMC and the official TM board are the best avenues we have for this. Aside from being able to post, TMC allows you send private messages to other individual members - I'll send you one now with my info so we can chat.

    As far as stores/service centers in the area, the rumor I am aware of is a service center in Columbus opening by end of 2012 (unofficial). If we do have a large presence of Roadsters, Models S's and eventually Model X's in NE Ohio we may justify a service center in Cleveland but as far as I know, no plans for this at present. Sharing ranger fees would be a neat thing, not sure if Tesla would bite but the least we can do is ask (and we don't even know what the annual maintenance will cost yet).

    I am "the other Sig holder that will have the care before the end of August". Welcome to the board.

    I am doubtful of an Ohio service center this year. I know of more prevelant areas that are still in need.

    We do have 2 Roadster although only 1 lives in Northeast Ohio. My position on the map is also incorrect. I am in Akron.

    Personally I do not believe Ohio to be all that unique when it comes to environmental concerns for the S. If you are planning on driving all year round I would go with winter tires... No steel to rust... Just drive! I believe the roadster provided Tesla with geographically relevant environmental data. I believe they will use this when building Model S. (sand, salt, humid, dry...)

    Columbus would be a great addition for Tesla stores. I'm just outside Dayton and that would be an hour drive. Columbus could service Cincinnati, Cleveland and Dayton without to much hassle for everyone. Currently, Chicago is the closest at 280+ miles is a little distant. I'm in strong believe that the servicing aspect of your Tesla will be solved as they expand their stores.

    I know nothing specific, just speculation.

    I have heard a lot of rumors about a Columbus service center, and a few about Cincinnati and Cleavland service centers. Columbus would be great for 60 kWh and higher Model S owners in other parts of the state, but it would be hard for a 40 kWh Model S to make it there from Cleavland, Toledo, or Cincinnati. Hopefully they open up something, as Chicago is a long haul, and out of range of virtually all of us. Looking at the reservation map, there are actually not as many reservations in Columbus as I would expect, but we all know that our map is far from complete.

    I met the Service Head for Canada this past weekend and he suggested that the anual maintenance for the Model S would be around $500 exclusive of travel to or from Service Center. He though that it migh be possible to pool together with other owners to have service done at same time- for instance in Cleveland.

    He alsomentioned that Telsa's plan was to set up a network of body shops that were certified to work on Telsa.

    Haven't seen anything official on either of these matters.

    That is excellent news. I live in Pittsburgh and sometimes travel for work to Indianapolis...now I can hopefully assume the existence of at least one HPC between here and there, as a fallback against a Supercharger network!

    Great news indeed! 2 hour drive to Columbus I can manage for scheduled services. A service center in CLE would be better but this is good start for TM to have some presence in this area.
