Not sure where to post here but wanted to vent a bit. We got our 2017 T8 a couple months ago CPO after selling our model 3 to get third row and a car for trips. Screen has always been laggy and takes awhile to switch between reverse camera etc, just thought it was normal. As of yesterday the whole console went out, no AC no screen, just keeps rebooting, lines go across the screen like it’s booting, freeze, then turn off. So took it to the dealer today and they say there is clearly water damage from a spill into the unit. Nothing has been spilled and we’ve only had the car two months, so I ask to take a look and cannot see any sign of liquid anywhere, bone dry. They point to a small brownish spot on the tunnel the size of a quarter thats a bit dirty and say it looks like something sticky spilled, again bone dry can’t even scrape it. Nothing near the IHU and nothing damp, no drip marks, nothing. They are claiming we will have to go through insurance to get the unit replaced fully or pay out of pocket. the tech said he’s never even seen an issue with the IHU black Screening︎, is my BS meter just off or am I being strung up the flag pole here?
