Bart: what version of software are you running. I was on 530 or 535 (can’t remember- whatever was latest) getting “ready faults” you describe, so I switched back to 520 and haven’t had one since.
As far as the original post: I have an early model (328), and have really had nothing go wrong at all. I did the RDM replacement proactively, but wonder if I might have even survived that ok. My gear selector recently went bad (described in a recent post), and I fixed that myself for the cost of a $120 part. At some point, something bigger is going to break and I’ll be at a real crossroads over whether to fix it or sell, but I think if I stick with it, it will be a real collectible some day: It is a specimen of one of the earliest modern-day EVs and not one but two publicly-traded multibillion dollar companies trace their roots back to the 2012.
