    Replacement Brake Pad Part Number Information

    Hello, sorry to revive an old thread. My mechanic who does my other cars looked at my 2018 MX P100D and told me all my pads are very low at 52,000 miles. He wants me to buy the pads and he will replace (I am not as handy as some of you). Are these the front and rear pads I need at Autozone...

    2020 Model X Walk Away Lock Issue

    Thanks. I will try changing the battery.

    2020 Model X Walk Away Lock Issue

    Already have all that set. My point is car locks/beeps/mirrors fold when it is going to lock. But every 3rd time or so- nothing happens- mirrors stay unfolded, no beep and not locking on walk away. If I try to use key fob triple click, car beeps twice and does not lock. I have to physically walk...

    2020 Model X Walk Away Lock Issue

    @cmarshack Did you figure out what's going on. My 2018 MX is doing the same thing (walkway locking works on and off). I don't have additional seat belts buckled in my car. This is driving me crazy since I never know if my car will be locked or not.

    To buy or not to buy?

    IMHO do not own a Tesla off warranty, especially 2016. This car may LOOK like 2017, 2018 etc models, but it’s a totally different car. I am talking 4-5 generations of various parts. Lately, Tesla started to nickel and dime customers for repairs, diagnostics, etc even if under warranty. You are...

    I expected my Model X and Tesla service to fail me.

    Resurrecting a 2 year old thread eh?

    Buzzing, hissing noise within first 3 minutes

    Maybe. I thought maybe blades of the fan get icy and catch until ice melts?

    Buzzing, hissing noise within first 3 minutes

    I have a similar issue but it’s like a fan noise that seems to be catching on something coming from front end of the car for about 1 min after the car “wakes up”. Only on a cold morning. Nothing after that. I am just ignoring this for now.

    MX17 - FalconWing Door weather stripping deteriorating - Not covered by Warranty

    Lol. They could care less. Don’t waste your time. Start arbitration.

    Did last sw update break bluetooth?

    Here is my prediction: one day before your appointment you will get a text saying “this will be fixed with a future software update” and they will cancel your appointment.

    Did last sw update break bluetooth?

    Last night I was finally able to delete the old phone profile. The car found “iPhone” and pair code showed up on the phone. But it still doesn’t connect. This is so frustrating.

    I am on 14.2.1. You are probably right. Any solution?

    Did last sw update break bluetooth?

    My iphone 12 pro stopped connecting to bluetooth since last sw update. The phone shows "connected", but the car doesn't connect manually or automatically. It wouldn't even delete the existing "profile", it gets stuck in "please wait" forever. I tried several recents, both car and phone. Nothin...

    2016 75D CPO, comments/suggestions?

    Let’s see, first year production model X, almost 100k miles, only one year/10,000 miles warranty, lowest range battery which most likely already degraded some and car to be used in cold winter climate with effective range reduced further by cold winters, buying sight unseen (Tesla no longer...

    I want to trade my 2015 Model S P85D for a Model X

    Sorry, I was trying to bring your sky high expectations down to Earth a bit. I will stop commenting immediately. And no, I would not trade my performance X for your car lol. Not even for 2.

    I want to trade my 2015 Model S P85D for a Model X

    MSRP makes no difference. Your car is worth around $30K US based on mileage and condition. X is at about $50K US depending on the same.

    Powder coating stock wheels on Model X

    I agree. Looks weird. My shop painted center caps and lug nut covers to match. Its all black.

    Need you help! Used Model X

    You totally makes sense. But there are multiple threads on this forum that they are denying this. As someone who took Tesla to arbitration TWICE for not covering things under warranty, I totally believe it. Good luck.

    Need you help! Used Model X

    Correct. After 3/18, it was MCU 2.5.
  25. R

    Need you help! Used Model X

    This is correct, but we like anything in life, prices are subject to change :). They’ve already increased them once (or twice?). I have a March built 2018 with free supercharging. I have a SC about 6 miles away next to a mall and a Costco. Fill up the tank as part of errands. $15 a pop free, not...

    Need you help! Used Model X

    Your MCU is likely dying. They will offer your a refurb for like $600 or you can upgrade to MCU2 for $2500, something like that. They won’t cover under warranty (there are many threads on this and I think a class action lawsuit).
  27. R

    Need you help! Used Model X

    I agree, it should stay. But I have read about several unrelated incidents where it was stripped during transfer and the owners were left holding the bag. I would get it in writing from Tesla before purchasing.

    Need you help! Used Model X

    I own a 2018 P100D. Even though I spent a fair amount of time at SC, never been stranded and no major issues, mostly cosmetic stuff. Even though MX has air suspension, ride is firm. Raven models have redesigned suspension; ride is much better. I would call Tesla and ask about warranty. I am...

    Biggest difference with my new X

    Great point and changes things for sure. Glad you are in a great position. I am half your age and my kids are 4 and 11. Still have many things to spend money on :).

    Extended Warranty for my Model X - Is it worth it?

    Don’t know. Will cross that bridge when we get there.

    Extended Warranty for my Model X - Is it worth it?

    I am on my second X since 2016. I would NEVER own one off warranty. Tesla is now trying to charge for everything, even things that should be under warranty during warranty period. And I can assure you repairs are not cheaper now as compared to the past.
  33. R

    Biggest difference with my new X

    Well, no downside except for tens of thousands that you gave Tesla for an upgrade :). My 2018 P100D is still going strong. I will wait 2-3 years for new design and new batteries.
  34. R

    Leased X returned in May. Received invoice for $9800 in September!

    Gotta say I am not surprised. Judging by dismal service experience recently, I wouldn’t expect anything different in finance department. Hope you sort this out quickly.

    Falcon Wing Door Glass Seal deteriorating

    1. Documents only. 2. Rule is needs to be compelled within 30 days. 3. They fixed it. I had to go back to arbitrator because no one called me for an appointment. 4. They replaced both sides. But this is how I picked up the car (see attached). I really hate Tesla service at this point.

    Wisconsin: buy a Model X, fears

    I stopped reading at 0. Having an SC 3.5 hours away is a deal breaker for me. I have 3 SCs within 10 mile radius and service has been terrible. I would wait until there is evidence that service is improving.

    How is Tesla Customer Service nowadays (2020)?

    Do you even read posts before responding? Where did I say anything about financing a depreciating asset? What does “impressing friends and neighbours” have to do with lease vs finance decisions? Where did I say that lease is the only option? Bottom lines is you have no idea what you are...

    How is Tesla Customer Service nowadays (2020)?

    Since you are so good with leasing, you know that a lot of business owners can deduct part or even whole lease payment for business use, right? Yes, you can deduct purchased car too (miles, etc.) but that not nearly as much (trust me, I know). Also, Teslas are not like regular cars, they are...

    How is Tesla Customer Service nowadays (2020)?

    I LOLed at this post. “Resale is not a big deal?”, “Tesla’s hold their value”? Really? Have you looked at this closely? Tesla lowered the price of new cars, especially X/S leaving owners who purchased 1-2 years ago holding the bag. Resale value plummeted. And yeah, Tesla will take your car in a...

    Falcon Wing Door Glass Seal deteriorating

    Understood. I installed solar about a year and a half ago and considered Tesla for a brief moment. Everything was so disorganized, unreliable and one department did not know what the other department was doing, I gave up on that early. Went with a great medium sized company and great warranty...

    Model X: Insurance

    What’s the “national insurer” you keep talking about? There is a difference between Mercury and Farmers, but both are national. Take a look at this thread. Many posts echoing my concerns. No proven track record. Insure at your own risk to save a few bucks. Tesla Insurance

    How is Tesla Customer Service nowadays (2020)?

    I agree with you 1000%. I have experienced every single issue on your list. To the OP- it’s a lottery. You may live next to a “better” SC or absolute worst. Here in LA, they are all bad. Very very bad.
