    How to open front passenger door (2016 Model X)

    Yeah, that is exactly what I've been doing, as explained in my original post. I'm looking for a way to only open the passenger front door and not the driver's door.

    How to open front passenger door (2016 Model X)

    Yeah, I've had cars with the option to unlock all doors or just the driver's door and it's certainly a safety thing. But I do like having the option to control that setting.

    How to open front passenger door (2016 Model X)

    We have had a 2013 MS for a couple years and bought a CPO 2016 MX from Tesla a couple weeks ago. Is there a way to open only the front passenger door with the key fob? Right now, we double-click the top button once to open the driver's door, wait a few seconds, and then double-click the top...

    Bought CPO MX last week, was in app same day, missing this morning - FIXED

    All, We bought a CPO Model X last Wednesday and it was in our Tesla account very shortly after taking delivery, within an hour or so. We already had a Model S in the app and things were fine until this morning when the Model X wouldn't connect. The Model S connected without a problem. So I...

    Taking delivery of 2016 Model X 75D this afternoon (9/18/2019)- looking for advice on what to check

    I've seen others complain that the switch is confusing to use, particularly by their kids, and that some SCs have replaced it without cost. YMMV

    Taking delivery of 2016 Model X 75D this afternoon (9/18/2019)- looking for advice on what to check

    Thanks for the information! So the windshield is getting replaced because of rock chips on it, and I'm hoping it will be the updated part number. I'll be sure to check it. I asked about the FWD switches being the older style and the Delivery Guy, who was not great, said they could not update...

    Taking delivery of 2016 Model X 75D this afternoon (9/18/2019)- looking for advice on what to check

    I used https://ev-cpo.com/hunter/ to find both my 2013 Model S 85 (CPO) a few years ago and to find our 2016 Model X 75D last month. By accident, the MS was in Dallas so there was no delivery fee a few years ago to bring it to Austin. But the MX was in San Francisco so there was a $2K delivery...

    Also of special note is that the Build Details lists an Accessory Hitch but the UI shows Tow Mode in Service --> Tow Mode. I'm a little fuzzy on what, if any, differences there are between the Accessory Hitch and Tow Package.

    Taking delivery of 2016 Model X 75D this afternoon (9/18/2019)- looking for advice on what to check

    Nice! So I ordered on Aug 30th and picked it up yesterday, so just under three weeks. Ours was in San Francisco and had to be shipped to Fremont and then the Austin Service Center. Keep in mind this was likely because I uploaded everything they asked for in a very timely manner. (Insurance...

    Taking delivery of 2016 Model X 75D this afternoon (9/18/2019)- looking for advice on what to check

    Yeah, we were sort of prepared to walk away if the windshield wasn't fixed or replaced. I'm glad we didn't have to! So I don't think I have the shutter issue. I drove it and floored it from a standstill and nothing noticeable. I also floored it from 20 mph, 30 mph, and 40 mph, and nothing.

    Taking delivery of 2016 Model X 75D this afternoon (9/18/2019)- looking for advice on what to check

    Congrats! Delivery was an odd experience because it is clear they are overworked and understaffed. Fortunately we already have a MS and have driven MXs while the MS was in for service, so we knew a lot about it without needing explanation. There were some cosmetic flaws that they (of course)...

    We bought a 2013 Tesla Model S 85 (CPO) a couple of years ago and at that time, fortunately, they were doing both cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment. Fast forward to today and we are taking delivery of a 2016 Tesla Model X 75D (CPO) and I want to make sure I'm not missing anything to check...

    News for Model X owners with the dreaded shudder

    Are there any driving conditions that would make the shutter very noticeable to the untrained eye (mine)? Should I floor it from standstill, or while going, say, 20 mph? Thanks for catching that the TSB is for 2014+ vehicles. I missed that.

    News for Model X owners with the dreaded shudder

    Hello everyone. We ordered a 2016 Model X 75D from Tesla.com and will take delivery within the next week or so at the Austin Service Center. It will be our second Tesla with our first being a 2013 Model S 85. My questions to you guys are as follows: 1. What is the best way to check if we have...

    Used Model X from Tesla. Noted Issues at Pick up.

    Thanks for sharing. I ordered a 2016 MX 75D and it's on the way to the Austin Service Center. Should be arriving in about two/three weeks and I'm glad you shared your experience so that I know what, among other things, to look for. Please update this post with any and all response from Tesla...

    Seeking advice for upcoming Mobile and Service Center work

    Hello, Two days ago I received the "12V battery requires service. Replace 12V battery soon" message and decided to schedule other maintenance items to have everything taken care of at the same time, specifically: 1. Change cabin filter ($37.50 + tax) (Last time changed was September 2017) 2...

    Buying advice (2016 Tesla Model X 60D)

    Hi MarkDFW, I did not realize the 60D was "slow" if you don't uncork it. I don't think it matters for us but good to know another data point in this decision. I feel like the three main issues against this purchase are: 1. 60D battery = limited range (maybe 160-ish with real world driving)...

    Buying advice (2016 Tesla Model X 60D)

    Thanks for sharing your experience, MarkDFW. The same applies to my MS, rated vs real-world range. How fast did your X charge at the Superchargers? I know it varies but what was your experience? In my MS, I think it was something like 150 miles every 30 minutes or so. I don't supercharge very...

    Hi Terthen, Thank you for sharing your experience. May I ask what FWD means? (I cannot read that without thinking Front Wheel Drive LOL.) Sorry for being such a noob! Thanks for the info about the real-world range and 22" wheel effect on it. It is very possible that we might opt for the X...

    Buying advice (2016 Tesla Model X 60D)

    I don't think I'd upgrade the range because it doesn't seem worth $4500 for under 40 miles of rated range. Can you tell me the disadvantages of AP1 vs AP2? Thanks! Martin

    Hi vamsi539, Thank you very much for this insight. Can you tell me the major advantage of AP2 over AP1? I have read that AP1 is very good and works very well but is not upgradeable when FSD is released. Is AP2 upgradeable when FSD is released, for free? I do agree that the 4-year warranty is a...

    Tesla Gallery Fort Worth - Clearfork Grand Opening

    I'll be in Fort Worth next week for a day or two and wonder if this Gallery has any charging opportunities for us "out-of-towners". The one in The Domain in Austin has a few chargers in the parking garage that the employees usually let people use. Does anyone know if the same applies here...

    Tinted windows recommendations. Good place in Austin?

    Well, the front windshield redo results in slightly less ghosting. But there is still enough to be distracting so I am strongly considering having them (Sunbusters) remove it. Before taking that step, would anybody be able to meet me when it is dark to compare front windshields? I just want to...

I have that setup but without the Black Onyx powder coat and wonder what it looks like "in...

    Very loud noise when AC is on

    Ed, Congrats on getting yours addressed. May I ask, what was the determining factor in getting your compressor replaced? I reported a loud noise when the a/c was initially turned on and it turns out my 2013 S 85 already has the aforementioned acoustic blanket installed. The SC says the noise is...

    Tinted windows recommendations. Good place in Austin?

    Update: I dropped the car this AM to have the front film redone. I did try polarized glasses a few nights ago and it cleared things up a lot but not to the point of no more ghosting. I'll be sure to report back how the film looks after a few days of curing.

    Any issues with valet parking?

    Hello, Has anybody had any (bad) issues with valet parking and your Model S? We picked up our CPO 2013 Model S 85 about two weeks ago and are hesitant to valet park it while going out on the town. (We are in and near Austin, TX, by the way.) Thanks! Martin

    Tinted windows recommendations. Good place in Austin?

    Thanks, Zaphod! So I've looked at it from all angles (driver's seat, front passenger's seat, all three reat seats) and it is pretty evenly bad from all positions. Also looked at it from top to bottom and still all bad. Sunbusters agreed to redo it and I'll schedule with them sometime next...

    2013 S P85, 41,000?

    Everyone has some great advice on the actual vehicle and I'd like to throw in my two cents about paying for the PPI. I would agree to pay for it out of pocket if the amount paid went towards the purchase of the car. Best case scenario is that you pay the $350 and everything is fine and you buy...
