    Tesla replaced my corded mobile connector with the gen 2

    The other annoying part is having all these Gen 1 adapters that you can't use with the Gen 2.

    Creaking Noise from car when I open the door

    Thats the front air intake louvers moving. I've had the exact same noise on my vehicle. I mainly get it in the winter and the Service Center tells me that I've got sand/salt in there that the gears/fins are grinding against. A car wash usually helps. And warmer weather so there's not all the...

    Early lease "trade/swap"?

    Last year at the end of the 3rd quarter Tesla offered an early turn in leases that had less than a year left on their lease if you bought or leased a new Tesla. I was really hoping they would offer it again this year so that I could do an early turn in on my lease but so far I haven't heard...

    MX Tire Issues

    I had a similar issue where I'm quite sure the SC forgot to put a cap back on my tire. The next time I brought the car back in I asked for them to replace the missing one. They did it no questions asked and without charging me. I would have paid had they asked.

    Supercharger - Minnetonka, MN

    There was talk on the MN Tesla Facebook group about this permit. Someone very close to the project did confirm it is a Tesla Supercharger and the ground work will be done before winter just like the others in the area.

    Model X Icebreaker crushes finger of five year old.

    This is exactly it. The picture made it look way bigger. I went back and found it after the description you gave.

    I've also looked at the doors on my March 2017 X and I do not see this.

    Tow hitch when not in use

    I do put the cover back on when the hitch is not in use. Yes, mine has a plug that goes into where the hitch connects. Keeps it free of debris. I put the plug in the zip up case when I have the receiver in use. Grease was in the socket.

    Tow hitch when not in use

    Used to put it on and off when needed. But this summer I was putting the bike hitch on most every weekend so I've just left it on now. If you don't use the hitch often then I wouldn't leave it on.

    All Weather Floor Mats 3dMAXspider or ToughPro?

    I've had the ToughPros for over 2 years in my X. When we got our TM3 I got ToughPros for that as well. I love them and I've gotten quite a few comments from other owners who've ridden in my car and want the same mats. I've had no issues with them and have 50k miles on the X and these mats...

    Car says key not present, when key is in my pocket

    I've had this issue before. I usually carry the fob and my phone in the same pocket. Every now and then the car says the fob isn't present. If I pull it out of my pocket the car sees the fob. Or if I pull the phone out of my pocket the car suddenly sees the fob. So your cell phone could be...

    Self Built Spare Tire Compartment

    Was the adapter hub required? From Modern Spare's website it sounds more like the hub is only required for vehicles with the performance package that has the larger rear brake calipers.

    Self Built Spare Tire Compartment

    Thank you for the pictures. I'd been looking at getting that spare but couldn't find any pictures with a MX actually using it. Having been stranded before in the middle of nowhere on a road trip with no cell signal and a flat tire on my MX and after getting towed to the nearest town have Tesla...
