    How bad are Falcon Wing doors?

    We had a lot of issues with the Falcon Wing doors on our Signature model. It's a 'bonus' to early adopters.😉 All the problems were resolved by Tesla with revised sensors, windows, and weather stripping. Even with those issues the doors were a blessing when loading grandkids into their car seats...

    Unhappy with FSD sales and pricing

    1) The only difference I noticed was a few early features of FSD like stopping at stop signs were now available. I tried it once, but turned it off b/c it was immature, slowing way down 40 yards before the stop. 2) If you have hardware 2.5 then it will include an updated processor to version...

    First significant problem with LR AWD after 2 years and 28k miles

    Get an outdoor cat. My yard was overrun by chipmunks and squirrels. Socks the hunter cat took care of the chipmunks in short order, and the squirrels saw what happened and decided to stay away.

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    As mentioned previously, you can operate the wipers for a quick sweep by pressing the button on the end of the stalk, or hold it in for the washer.

    Funny story for ya'll....

    Model 3 doesn't have air suspension like the S and X; therefore no "jack mode". Did the shop install the correct size tires?

    Why is Tesla not using used cars as loaners?

    I get a Tesla loaner whenever I take my car in for service. Sometimes it's an S, other times an X. I took my P3D in yesterday for the FSD computer upgrade and the loaner was a red S.

    Falcon Wing Door false obstacle detection when Christmas dancing

    I had the same problem (phantom obstacle on driver's side falcon wing door). I demonstrated it to a Tesla Ranger who came for a different issue, and he tried it on the Model X he arrived in. He had the exact same problem at the same point in the dance. He concluded it was a software issue that...
