    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    I hope this is the right place for this question. 10 Years ago I spent hours and hours on this forum. I ordered a signature MX in February 2011, received it in December 2015 almost 4 years later. (Sorry, my picture doesn’t work, I have the “MODEL X” plate for the state of Washington.)...

    Can you keep the 12V outlets on when the car is off?

    Looking for feedback on the dometic cf-025dc. Are people happy with it? Does it fit well in the MX?

    Internet Radio and WiFi Connectivity

    Did you ever find a resolution? I'm having the same problem. Tesla says I need to reboot but that doesn't seem to make any difference. Also, map refresh speed is really slow, pixel squares all the time.

    AVC?

    My 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche Pickup truck has it. I put in that request in 2015 when I first got the MX. The fact that it's electric makes this far worse since it is dead silent when stopped. Drives me nuts adjusting the volume all the time and it seems like it should be a simple software...

    Firmware 8.0

    Hmmm.... haven't been here in awhile since I got the MX but I heard about the 8.0 update. Delayed due to the SpaceX fire? Any real news? What will be included? How far back do I need to go to see any real information? Most of this is way off topic.

    4000 mile 10 day road trip from Port Townsend to Phoenix and back

    I've had the exact same experience on both sides. One stream of water from right in the middle of the FW. Lands on the edge of the seat or just inside depending upon the tilt of the car.

    Model X Range

    Couple of questions. You said the MS numbers at factual. From where? This shows less than 3% impact having the larger wheels which is far less than I've been told. Second question or comment, this table appears to be rated range. In my experience, I can hit the rated W/mile, i.e. range, in...

    Model X Range

    FWIW. I have about 3500 miles on the car. A lot of it is freeway miles at average 65 mph. (Not 75 and there's a big difference). 900 miles of this was a trip, heavily loaded with 6 adults full cabin climate, through a mountain pass. I have 22" rims. Temperature around here has been around...

    Model X Range

    392 average is way better than my 425 average. Only big difference is I have the 22" wheels. But, I'm not doing 75 MPH and not in 30 degree weather. Tesla service is now replacing the HV battery cables. Thy seem to think that I'm no getting proper "connection" to the front motor and possibly...

    It doesn't work for me. Shows 0 trips. It shows the car name and charge status so I know it's connected but no trips. Maybe you could check with Ryan and see if the MX works the same as the MS.

    Oh. I did not know that. So... do you just leave it open on your desktop all the time? (Or minimized of course.)

    VisibleTesla

    Thanks, I did not know about evMote. Looks like it has some good features. I signed up, just the basic to start with, but still no trips are shown. For either application, does it need to be a "trip" in the trip planner or does it show wherever the car went? I wonder if the MX is different...

    VisibleTesla

    Same question. I can't see any trips. I ran into an issue with a tesla valet driver today. He got a ticket for no front license plate after picking up my car for service. I can't believe that would ever happen on the highway. Pretty sure he sidetracked into town and spent some time there...

    Model X Range

    I just thought that since there is a line on the graph, Tesla must know the exact number. Seems like they would share it. I'll ask.
  20. O-G

    Model X Range

    Does Tesla state the number for any models? Since everything seems to be based on this number, it's seems that it should be a known number. We should not be estimating based upon the lines on a graph. How does this factor into the trip system calculator?

    Model X Range

    What makes you believe the rated range to be 340 Wh/mi? I was under the impression it is closer to 300. 314 sticks in my mind but I'm not sure now where I got that from. If I extrapolate actual miles and Wh/mi versus what I think is rated, it seems like the math works at the 300 level or so.

    Model X Range

    Rain, wind, etc is the norm. In Washington, that's what we have all the time. Bottom line, I'm not the millionaire buying this car to sit in a showroom. I drive close to 100 miles daily and often get to the 200 miles in a day. That's part of what made the economics of this car make sense...

    Yes. 22s with the factory perelli tires. I wonder if a different tire would make a difference. I've had good luck with continentals in the past.

    Model X Range

    I just took a long road trip from Tacoma, WA to Ashland, OR. Roughly 425 miles each way. Six people in the car with light luggage for 3 days but the car was pretty much maxed out for space. I had to use every supercharger on the route. Terrible weather on the way down, (someone told me that...

    MX Road Noise

    One disappointment in the new MX is the amount of road noise at highway speed. Is have the 22" wheels so I understand that people say they are louder. However, I had big low profile tires on my BMW X5. This car has a lot more road noise. Has anyone noticed this same issue? Is there a way to...

    Feature request: Location based trunk opening height

    I thought that I had read somewhere that this was already in place. I can say that it does not work on my MX. Does any one know if it's supposed to be implemented?

    Model X Range

    The whole system is still based on that rated range. So... When I start in the morning at 90% charge and it says 227 miles, I'm really not even close to that. 180 is probably a realistic range. If I charge to 100%, it says 248 miles but 200 is probably real. That's quite a difference. I'm...

    Model X Range

    Im at about 1500 miles myself. Do you have 22" or 20" wheels. The tesla rep told me the 22's could cost me 10-20 miles per charge. I can't get even close to the 300w/m rated range. Since inception, I'm about 420. That's a big difference.

    Model X Range

    Took a road trip this weekend. Still can't quite figure out the range. Traveled about 150 miles each way. On the way there, consumption was 454 w/mile. On the way back, 390. Same route, Seattle to Portland. I don't think there is a big elevation change. Roughly the same outside temp...

    Is it too soon or too late to ask about a front lic. plate

    FWIW, Just before raising my MX, I wrote a letter to th state of Washington asking for a variance. I had been told that if no plate holder was available, the variance was possible. At the time, I was not aware of any front mounting plate from Tesla. Low and behold when I picked up the MX the...

I'm still struggling with the actual power consumption in the MX versus the rated range. I was assuming the ludicrous mode would take more power only when demanded but maybe...

    Second Row Center Console

    Is there anything in the production ordering that indicates there is a console in the second row of the 6 seat option? The founder 6 seat vehicle at the reveal had one but I have not been able to get any confirmation if the Sigs will be delivered with it or if it will be an option in the future.

    Model X has single 72A charger

    I am sooooo..... glad they changed back to the 72 amp charger. Because of all the concerns wth charging, I was loaned a P85D for the weekend, dual chargers included. I made the trip to my weekend place which is right at 100 miles from home. I started with a 100% charge which, as I understand...

    Life with Autopilot: 1500 miles trip report

    I was able to get a loaner P85D prior to by MX delivery. One operational question I can't seem to answer. When the TACC is set the first time, it lock in a speed. Let's say it's set at 65 MPH. I disable it by pushing the stick backwards. When I enable it again by pulling the stick forward...

    Model X has single 72A charger

    I doubt that the difference between a 90 amp breaker with #4 wire compared to a 100 amp breaker with #3 wire is significant. Much of the cost is labor which won't change. I'm set up for the 80 amp charging. My understanding is that the car charger will adjust to its maximum. I'm curious to...

    Poll: Would you pay for a higher power Model X charger?

    To clarify my real life example, my work mileage varies a bit from 100-150 miles. The cottage is not variable, about 110 miles one way. I can't travel I5 for a supercharger, I'm going down the coast. I make a point to get on the freeway before 3:00 when the military bases change shift. If...

    @Tedkidd I'm trying to stay out of the argumentative mode here but really, what may work for you might be a lot different than other people. As I have stated in other posts, (more detailed), this is a problem for me most every weekend. I can't drive 150 miles in the day, then turn around in...

    I was so happy to see your post. I felt like I was the only one seeing this as a huge problem. I'm hoping that with your influence, there will be an upgrade down the road. I wish Telsa could be more upfront with the issues and solutions. I almost cancelled my reservation but finally threw in...

    Update: Model X has a single charger, but only 48A capable

    It's not about the money at this point, it's about time. I would not be able to do the work drive on Friday, then turn around and drive to my weekend place. I would have to charge Friday night, then drive Saturday thus losing one evening of my weekend away.

    Update: Model X has a single charger, but only 48A capable

    Which is why the 72amp, (really the 80 amp available in the MS), should be an option. It is a huge issue to me. I can see once or twice a week that it will potentially be a problem. Many if not all weekends will be a problem. I'm thinking I will need a second vehicle to drive for work on...

    CHAdeMO adapter

    The unfortunate issue is that we are now dealing with the reduced charging ability of the MX. Even though I have a HPWC installed, max is now 12kW, 48 amps. If I can somehow switch to DC, then those limits are gone. That's what I am trying to compare. I have plenty of room on a 400 amp...

    Does anyone know what it would take to install a CHAdeMO charger at a residence? What kind of amp draw would it require? Cost?

    Update: Model X has a single charger, but only 48A capable

    This whole issue could have been easily avoided if Tesla had simply said "We are having XXXXXX issue with our 72A charger, (technical, supply, etc.). We will temporarily be installing a 48A charger until the XXXXXX problem is resolved at which time the original 72A charger will be reinstalled"...

    Update: Model X has a single charger, but only 48A capable

    As I mentioned, it's a problem for me essentially every weekend. Maybe I am in the 1%, although I doubt it, but it's definitely an issue that has the potential of making the MX impractical. I'm hoping someone can give me some real life info before I pull the plug. (If there is another thread...

    I've driven the MS several times. Unfortunately, I've driven pickups and SUVs for the last 20 years. Last seven in a BMW X5. I just can't handle the sedan thing. Too low to the ground. To limited visibility. I expected the MX to be better than the MS in every way. (Recognizing some reduction...
