    No Difference in Range between 21'' and 19'' Wheels

    I had both 19s and 21s on my 2015 P85D and there was ZERO difference in range with them. The 21s looked cool but were less comfortable and not practical in the snow. Both sets had all season tires. The 21s were square so not wider in the back. Had I had the non square setup I'm pretty sure I...

    Switching from Audi...

    The M3 loaner I just had for 5 weeks was WAY louder than my 2015 P85D was. I could not handle driving an M3 long term. My MXP is far quieter than my 2015 S was. The fit and finish on the latest X's suck. My 2015 S was way better. Service sucks. They take months to do what used to take a week and...

    Wrinkles on leather seats at delivery

    Front right a-pillar (factory paint defect). Front right door (scratch from factory). Rear hatch was repainted with no explanation given. The rear hatch was perfect and to have that much factory paint redone with the crappy color mismatched paint with overspray and fisheyes really sucks. I'm...

    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    Tesla still has my MXP that I took delivery of April 7th. I've taken no trips in it. Have less than 1000 miles (all due to driving to and from the service center twice). They asked me to store it while I was out of the country for two weeks and return it when I got back so they could continue...

    Wrinkles on leather seats at delivery

    Good question. I have a severe wrinkle on the front passenger seat bottom inside bolster. I think I'm going to ask them to fix it. It's only got 500 miles and has been in service nearly since I took delivery of it on April 7th. It's gone back like 5 times now to be repainted, in their own words...

    My super charger rate reduced from 130kW to 58kW

    Seems reasonable given that doing so won't change the overall vehicle throughput but it will reduce the one of the cars from charging really fast when another car is sharing the stack. i.e. it will reduce battery degradation from fast charging.

    Cruise Control and Autopilot Suddenly Decelerates

    That's what I ended up having to do since I do not want to get rear ended. Sucks paying $132K for a car that doesn't have basic cruise control.

    If that were true, you'd think it would have been called out by Munroe or any of the other many third parties that regularly tear down Tesla components.

    If you have clear documentation/receipts then Tesla owes you money for storage.

    Need Advice...MX Vin was just assigned but I want to Reject...

    It was absolutely a reject. Avoid. I wish I had rejected my second X which was a NF337x vin. I picked it up April 7th. It has been at Tesla for all but a few weeks for paint and body issues. My family and I haven't gotten to use it once since we got it. I put 1500 miles on an M3 loaner and now...

    What are MX Plaids realistically selling for?

    If EPA ratings held relative between the P85D and the MXP, I'd have no problem getting 280 on a single charge with my 20" wheels. Rated on the P85D with the 19" wheels was 310 yet I consistently achieved in the 260 to 280 range on long trips or about 40 wh/mile better than rated. The MXP with...

    What are MX Plaids realistically selling for?

    Wow! Have they come down in price that much? Ironic as when they were $119K, they were consistently listed on auto trader from $180K to $240K.

    Pull to left during hard acceleration on Plaid

    One of the issues I've had since day one when I first picked up my MXP on April 7th is a pull to the left during hard acceleration. Steering wheel was straight and no pull during static speed. I swapped tires on both axles left to right and vice versa to eliminate the possibility of a radial...

    Yes, if I cover the right side with my palm, I get only the horn. I’d still prefer the airbag switch though.

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    Odd. I’ve used the horn a half dozen times and it hasn’t activated any of the buttons individually. Still, I’m glad all of our Yokes after November have the airbag horn. They sure seem to be taking their time though.

    2022 model x plaid. Huge headache every time i go full throttle. plaid headache

    I had the same experience first time I test drove a regular old P85D. Decades on sport bikes that could hit 60 in 3 seconds or slightly less. Then I drove a P85D and had a headache for 4 hours. Second test drive left me with the same headache for only 30 minutes. No headache after taking...

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    Won’t that exceed the tongue weight? It’s one thing to have a heavy trailer tongue which is pushing straight down which does not apply any rotational torque to the receiver while a something like this will provide potentially thousands of ft-lbs of torque to the receiver when going over bumps.

    From y performance to x plaid for less bumpy ride

    I just had an m3 loaner for 5 weeks. It was nearly unbearable without ear plugs on the freeway. My MXP is quiet a bit quieter than my 2015 S P85D and way way quieter than the M3 loaner.

    Plaid Vibration around 38-42MPH....

    Not lower torque but certainly not higher as both are traction limited at lower rpms/speed where torque is highest.

    Supercharger Shock!

    I've had a loaner M3 instead of my brand new model X for the last 5 weeks and it now looks like they're going to keep it another 2 weeks. I've put 1500 miles on the loaner almost all of it with free unlimited supercharging. It appears the trick to getting free unlimited super charging is to...

    150kW new charge rate MX D90

    I had this happen and there is no error on the display but the logs will show a louver alert. Tesla first claimed there were no problems. Took it to a different service center and they found the problem before I even left. After louver was replaced, my max 68kw at even a low 10% went back up to...

    Beware of Model X

    So basically they threw a bunch of parts at it guessing what the issue was until they finally replaced a part that made the noise go away. This is why you need them to put it in writing when they diagnose it that they guarantee that is the issue otherwise they never really found it. If you...

    Tesla Paint is the most delicate automobile paint I've ever seen

    Sold my March 2015 p85d a few months back with 135k miles on it. It was swirl free it's entire life. Never through a car wash. Never washed with rinsed mits. Always washed with 15 microfiber mits one small section at a time.

    Battery at 1% SOC at service center....

    Was sitting at 0% this morning. Now it's back up to 90% which I previously complained about and they said they'd lower the max charge slider down but they never did. I'm a year's of battery aging in just this one month that they've had it.

    Battery at 1% SOC at service center....

    Right. That's why I'm not worried about it dropping below the the 4% that it will really have when it hits 0% displayed, but still, not sure how good it is to leave it at that level for 30+ hours. I'll bet it not as bad as leaving it at 100% for a long time. Cabin overtheat disables below 20%...

    Battery at 1% SOC at service center....

    Week before last on Friday night, the service center plugged my Plaid in and charged it to 90% before leaving for the weekend. It sat at 90% plugged in all weekend. Then on Friday, a few days ago, they left it unplugged at 12%. Tonight it hit 1% and will likely go into shutdown and then...

And then it went in for the post delivery service appt to fix all the defects on May 6th. The original estimated completion time was two weeks. Then last week it...

    286 wh/mi @ 65mph, is this reasonable?

    I'm just saying it's not typical with my driving style comparing it to my P85D which is 310 wh / mile rated.

    The yoke only really makes sense for a street car if the steering ratio is variable based on speed. The Lexus yoke works because it's steer by wire. That said, I've gotten used to it and even like it. But the way I'm steering at slow speed(i.e. tight turns, multi-poin, etc), is to use a single...
