    What Would Compel You To Upgrade to a Future Model X?

    400 range & massage seats + different colors. I've owned three, '16, '18, '23, why not a 4th?

    Supercharger - Ocala, FL - NW Blitchton Rd

    This plus the future Buc-ee's....amazing how big Tesla's Ocala presence has grown since the first one at the mall (one of my all-time favorites with Panera, Dick's and other places to shop/eat).

    Supercharger - Brunswick GA

    Sigh. If you want to eat, my key point is stop at Yulee. The only value of Brunswick to me is the bathroom access and it’s worth a few charging $ to eat better. I’ve done over 30 trips since ‘16 and found Yulee to be a winner given our trip profile/timing. But, please stay and use Brunswick...

    FSD v12.x (end to end AI)

    12.3.3—enjoying this version more than any other. Five key flaws to correct though: 1) drives to the far left of a lane unless following another vehicle. 2) Roundabouts-superb but stops in a crosswalk blocking Pedestrians if there is a queue 3) doesn’t adjust speed quickly enough 4) ignored...

    FSD v12.x (end to end AI)

    V12 much better than before but not without some issues. It now drives on the proper (right) side in my 2-lane community versus driving in the middle of the road until it saw another vehicle. However, It still doesn't recognize community gates & still takes much too long to make turns. It...

    HELP!! 2023 MXP_7000MLIES_UI_a020 - Steering Assist Reduced.

    Thx for that update. My vehicle was assessed quickly after the tow and also was told it needs a steering rack replacement. Unfortunately, the part isn’t due until next week which will turn this into at least an 8 day turnaround. I did get a decent loaner though but it’s apparent that they...

    Same problem for my '23 X.....service center advises new steering rack needed. I've seen this reported on here a few times already....I wonder if this is a more widespread problem in which Tesla will address with a new part?

    HELP!! 2023 MXP_7000MLIES_UI_a020 - Steering Assist Reduced.

    Agreed....I tried the typical re-boot too. When I pinged for service, the APP recognized the failures in the car (gave me a dialogue box to check and then moved to appointments). Waiting 2 weeks is less than ideal though and the worst I've seen in my 8 years as an owner for a safety failure...

    My 2-days in experience in NC’s Triangle area: Local driving: — as noted by others, vehicle always delivers a mph that is below speed limit/target unless I intervene and increase speed. That occurs in an open, straight road with no one in front of me. — vehicle still gets confused about Cary...

    Nah, I have owned 3, a 3K and 103K and now a 450K VIN model (sold the first two). The current model is significantly better than each unit and much different/improved. Sure they still have falcon wing doors but the interior, guts and exterior have changed over the years to make them...

    “What the Israelis have done has some echoes of what the Christian Crusaders did 1000 years ago” only zealots/backward societies worry about what happened a 1000 years ago. My history books suggest the Crusades were a check on expansionist Muslim power that had been making inroads into...
