    Model X vs Model S for road trips?

    I like my Model X for road trips, but everything you said about the Y is worse in the X. It's a gigantic vehicle.

    Should I upgrade from my '21 Model X

    I considered it for a bit. The performance model would be a pretty big upgrade from my non-performance 2017. 50% more motors! But I'd pay $10k more for features I've already got, and the whole supercharging thing. Overall, it'd be a nice thing to have, but cost me a lot more in a time when I...

    Dreading warranty repair

    I've had a A (once on each side) and B fixed with mobile service. C doesn't require a full reboot -- I've done it while driving. I think I've noticed D recently. Haven't looked into it, but I'm due for a computer swap anyway.

    Phantom hard braking on autopilot

    Oh cool, I haven't been driving a lot lately (for some reason…), but have been noticing a lot more of this recently. Thanks for fixing it all for me, everyone. :)

    Model S REST API

    It looks like Tesla may have firewalled off cloud providers from using their endpoints recently. This is a bit inconvenient for me as it seems to have happened just around the time I got evacuated from my home due to fires, so I'm missing a lot of otherwise useful data that my app would've been...

    Key not in car

    I don't understand your tweets. Is there something in particular you're looking for?

    Model x for short people?

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. I hardly ever use the pedals (or steering wheel for that matter) in mine.

    Model X Wannabe: How to convince the wife?

    Safety was the initial thing for us. We had to take a couple long drives every weekend. In addition to spending $400/mo on gas, sometimes we were just tired. EAP means more eyes on the road and they don't get tired. They also don't get distracted when someone yells. Someone mentioned dog...

    Tesla Model X vs Lexus 450h

    I couldn't imagine having to drive another vehicle from my grandfather's generation. My wife borrowed her father's truck recently and it's been a miserable (and expensive) experience for her. I'm not super acquainted with Lexus, but I've not seen any products for them that wouldn't be a...

    X or S?

    I wouldn't buy an X for the doors. They're a flex I don't really need. But when I drive an S after driving my X, I feel like I've got blinders on. It's bigger than I like, but I really like being able to see.

    Calling all 2018 - 2019 100D MX - What's your range?

    I never look at those numbers. I don't think they're particularly useful. I look at the expected charge level at destination. One of my routes is somewhat uphill, and another is somewhat downhill. Each is different. I find people get really stressed looking at mileage numbers. It's really...

    What happen After charge in full

    If it's a busy place, you make a bunch of people wait for you to leave so the rest of us can get on our way.

    Model X reliability...

    I don't use my falcon doors much. One of them sometimes thinks there's something in the way and doesn't like closing on its own in my carport. But my carport is very small and I live at the end of a very dusty dirt road, so I don't complain about that. The front door actuators die, though...

    Our license plates came. Did you install yourself or Tesla? If by self- what screws?

    I got my front plate here: https://licenseplatewrap.com/

    How reliable is model x?

    I'm a bit over 60k miles in the last couple of years. I've had both from door actuators replaced (they came to my work and did it). I got the yellow border thing (they fixed that at my house). I think one of the fairing things got loose once. My wife dealt with that. I just recently took it...
