    Model X 12v Battery Replacement Frustration (long-winded)

    My 2019 Raven X (manufactured in July) gave me a 12v warning in December - it was delivered last day of September. Also happened to my sister's '18 X100D car right in the middle of pandemic border restrictions (Abu Dhabi and Dubai, UAE). I managed to get Tesla to courier a replacement 12v...

    My Experience bringing a Tesla to Dubai

    They are phasing out the US spec chargers now. Just FYI. Last time I looked I found the old US stall was charging an EU car. I need to double-check if they moved it somewhere else but I doubt this arrangement will last. Also US spec cars are no longer supported. We have a lot of Teslas here...

    1 wee with MYP, what do I miss from my Chevy Volt?

    1 wee with myP... (and you can't edit the title lol). Rear cross traffic alert is a cool feature. I'm sure Tesla could add it as a software update. Thanks for sharing.

    Automatic braking take over

    This happened to me twice in 5 years of driving Tesla. The first one I am actually grateful the car did drop the anchors; I was already braking moderately as I had been trying to catch up to slower traffic crossing a green light. When the light turned amber, the guy in front slammed on the...

    Model X's Insatiable Appetite for Tires

    Just to clarify, is this the 3rd set including the set that came with the car? If that is the case you are getting 27,500 per set which is great for a Model X. My X performance is at 18k miles now and the tyres are starting to get noisy.

    I need a drink — badly :-(

    If you are still getting used to the dimension of your car, leave it for a bit...all my careless curb rash happened in the first 6 months of ownership.

    Driving While Asleep Videos

    Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with 3 surface cover...weighted just right and hangs off the steering wheel nicely ;). I cannot upgrade to a new one as its too light.

    "No Brake" Days

    It's hard not to use the brakes when you have Ludicrous mode...

    Performance X World Record 1/8th Mile

    Incredible for such an enormous car...

    Raven efficiency, even Performance

    I have an X performance Raven and I find it to be very economical. I'm typically getting around 289 wh/mi on my 40 mile daily commute (this of course precludes Ludicrous+ launches but still gets me into every slot in traffic I desire).

    Homelink from Tesla App not working

    This is counter intuitive, but a simple fix is to go to the Summon Settings and check Use Homelink with Summon.

    Battery discharging after 2020.20.13 update

    The cabin overheat protection will drain the battery even if it doesn't actually kick in, just because it keeps the car on. I recommend turning it off if you're not using it.

    Battery discharging after 2020.20.13 update

    "Loosing 5%" I feel your irritation...and it is of course complete and utter BS. I'm on 2020.20.13 and I'm back to losing less than 1% per night. You will lose more % if you keep the key near the car, leave a door open or ajar, keep sentry mode on, or if you keep cabin overheat protection on...

    v2020.24.6 update killed my X

    I'm going to bet the problem was your 12v battery.

    Battery discharging after 2020.20.13 update

    I use the app / Switch Vehicle screen. It shows which of the cars are online, offline, or asleep. Probably doesn't work if you only have 1 car on your app. Since 2020.20.12 my 2019 MX Raven doesn't sleep - just like everyone else in this thread. Gone from losing 1% in 2 days to 4% per day.
