    When will there be a 400 mile Model X?

    I'm sorry, I haven't been following the various subtle Tesla upgrades but that recent announcement about the Model S getting 400 miles of EPA range certainly caught my eye. My wife saw it too and now she wants to trade in our 2018 Model X for a new one, on the assumption that some future...

    Anybody else having voice recognition issues since the last 2 updates?

    Well often the text is perfectly recognized and displayed "Turn seat heater on", but nothing happens. And I find I have to hold the button down for a second or two after I finish speaking or it misses the last few words.

    Anybody else having voice recognition issues since the last 2 updates?

    A month or so ago Tesla released an update which seemed to really fix the voice recognition system. For a few days we were turning on seat heaters and showing/hiding the backup cam like nobody's business. Then something happened. Now nothing works. It either recognizes the command, shows the...

    Tesla service and how they treat owners, really disappointed

    Yikes, this is a pretty negative thread. These stories seem awful. My experience with the Tesla mobile service here in North Carolina was super. The tech was super knowledgeable and answered all kinds of questions I had. My previous service experience has been with Chevrolet (awful about...

    Procedure for replacing a lost Tesla keyfob as of Sept. 2019

    I recently lost my Model X keyfob so I tried to research on-line what to do. One place I found said you needed to buy a keyfob, then have it programmed by Tesla ($160). So I bought a used one off eBay. Well that information was not correct. Yes, it needs to be programmed by Tesla, but the cost...

    Where is CANBUS connector in Model X?

    I wanted to follow up on my original Nov. 2018 post. I recently lost my keyfob and ordered a new one from Tesla. The Ranger was coming by to fix a taillight filled with water and he also brought the keyfob and programmed it. The programming process involves removing this cubby and accessing the...

    2nd Row Legroom measurements 5/6/7 seat configuration

    The rear bench seat in the 5-seater version is fixed. It may tilt slightly (I can't recall), but it does not slide forward or back. Rear passengers have a ton of legroom. The bench seat is just average, comfort-wise. With the 6-seater version, remember you can't fold the middle row flat so cargo...

    Chrome delete for MX in NJ

    How is this chrome delete actually accomplished? Is it a wrap? I'm thinking if I ever get a Model Y I'll want the reverse, to make the door handles look chromed!

    Light off roading possible?

    The Youtuber "Tesla Bjorn" did some expensive damage to his Model X by going down a rutted road in Norway. I think you're nuts to risk an expensive to buy & repair vehicle like this on an off-road adventure!

    2019.16.2 Killed Cristmas

    Yes, you have to be on level ground with nothing near the Falcon wing doors. If not, you get exactly the behavior you describe. But I haven't checked it on 16.2...

    This has been a really helpful thread. This sounds like something that could happen to any of us at some point.

    Navigation system really is not even close to TomTom....

    Wow, that qTesla Forecast website is neat. I've often wanted a quick weather radar view of my current location. Very slick.
