    Supercharger - Bethesda, MD

    Unfortunately I could not see any map that showed Clarksburg as a supercharger location (I don't know that those parking spaces are anything more than just reserved for low emssion vehicles). It would be great to have one before Hagerstown. I have a sister in Frederick and I live in Richmond...

    What type of purchasing experience do you prefer?

    IMO Prior to purchasing my Tesla, my experience purchasing cars was very one sided and centered around used cars. You see I worked for CarMax for over 20 yrs. In that time I saw the used vehicle retail experience revolutionized by a company with a customer centric approach to selling cars...

    Model X June Deliveries

    Wow ... really disappointed to read about your experience particularly the attempt to remove substance from paint.. with tshirt... I would give feedback to manager.. you will be getting a survey... use that opportunity to communicate this. I'm interested in the after market LED's - what and...

    Model X Timeline - From Prototype to Production

    you may want to check out taxes - CA is very high and it varies from state to state how that works when you register it in your state.. may wind up paying 2x taxes.

    Model X June Deliveries

    Thx - Great experience... you don't get any free stuff at TYCO like other folks did. (but hey - I was there for the car). The Delivery Specialist (mine was Jessica) turns you over to a delivery coordinator for the detail run thru and paperwork. That was Dan for my delivery he was great and very...

    Well I picked it up today!!! at TYCO Service center. Used the checklist and really tried to find something... but could not.. the only thing missing was the Sunshade! ...and I have a due bill for that. Fit and finish were spot on. No problems with doors or windows. Interior was clean and...

    Model X Timeline - From Prototype to Production

    Until you get closer to production you may not see much. Don't depend on MyTesla. They are not updating it very frequently. Your DS is a better source of info and likely is very swamped with June deliveries. I would recommend reaching out by email to introduce yourself. The first sign of...

    [Resolved] Beyond Frustrated How do I contact a Regional Manager

    @Kavita Batra Welcome! The Model S is a very mature vehicle known to have few problems in current production. The Model X is a new model that has experienced problems in the early production models. The current Model X production models are reporting few problems and it appears that Tesla...

    [Resolved] Beyond Frustrated How do I contact a Regional Manager

    @Darryl So sorry to hear about your experience. I expect to get my X next week and will be 2hrs from SC. However, from reports it seems like the production quality is much better on the X's coming off the line now - so I hope not to need to visit SC much. That doesn't help you - seems like...

    X owner claims unintended acceleration caused accident

    A test- anecdotal evidence that shows that the AP and CC will not engage below 18mph.... good thinking @madodel - hope you were doing this in an area that was safe in the event that it did engage!:eek:.... So the theory that AP or CC pressed the gas is unlikely. Also - I really respected the...

    Model X Delivery Checklist

    I have taken all of the data from the checklists and put it on an excel spread sheet. There were several duplications which I consolidated. I also assigned a group (Interior/exterior..etc) and a type (FWD, windshield, seats 2nd row..etc) and then sorted the items by group. Being slightly OCD...

    @Cutch26 you will get better information from your DS. :D The my tesla page is not updated and will not show your current status.

    Lloyd Mats - Rubbertite mats in the X? Good?

    I just assumed that my carpet will be black.. don't recall a question on that. I am guessing the color choice on mats was to match seat color choice? black/tan/white? Also it would seem like a better idea to have a folding cargo mat that has a crease or hinge that allows the mat to stay in...

    I am assuming that the next update will be when my car arrives or to set up a delivery appointment. This is based on the very high level updates I have received so far - eg - your car is in production, your car is done production and waiting on transport. Unlike some others that get a much...

    Well not necessarily - there are quite a few folks doing research prior to making a decision. Granted it would add to the chances of getting a referral used if folks posted it on their other social media accounts. I'm not posting mine because I live in VA and don't want to take away from...
