    Update on Blytheville or Forrest City Arkansas?

    Hey there, driving through Arkansas end of November here (Chicago to Texas) and see Memphis has a SC now but it looks inconvenient a bit due to being East of the city a bit. I see Tesla has planned locations in Blytheville and Forrest City AR that both say expected 2018 opening. Anyone in...

    Point of Reference, 1+2 Year Service Combined Items & Cost = $1357

    For those wondering about service cost any, just has mine done for the first time in 2 years (car is 2 years old now). I skipped the 1 year service since it was already in the SC a lot for fixes at times and it doesn't get driven much. Note: The below included 2nd year service items + 1 year...

    Thoughts on Good 2016 90D X Private Party Price vs CPO?

    FWD latch crushing-denting step

    Anyone else have this issue? Picked up X from service the other day and noticed this damage. I don't think it was service (could have been I guess). The damage is right around the latch and in a square pattern so figure the latch is pulling the door too tight or hard against the step causing...

    Anyone having issue with their daylight running lights, when set to Auto (the default)? If I drive in daylight/bright weather they have always been on, but now they are just off. If I toggle the mode to OFF, then they do turn on bright, PARKING they are on dimmer with fogs (if dark enough)...

    Touchscreen Unresponsive?

    My touchscreen is unresponsive, gives the warning, about 90% of the time over the last couple months. Has made ownership extremely frustrating at times. I can't operate doors from it, can't do garage door, can't choose media easily, can' change AC to defrost windows at times, turn on...

    SuperCharge Stopped at ~97% Normal?

    First time I've ran into this but isn't a huge deal. I was supercharging to actually 100% today as had a long drive and also wanted to really fill up the battery as I had arrived at around 3 miles only left so figure would try out that ideal of calibration somewhat to its full limit - then...

    Add Accessory Hitch?

    Couldn't really locate this exact answer, but... I'm assuming we all have the removable panel under our X. I have a 90D, probably built around May+ timeframe (have to check), VIN 8000ish. I was wandering if it is at all possible to add the accessory hitch here now. I know can't add towing...

    iOS App Issue? X plugged in but app not showing it...

    I've had the small normal delay in past when opening the app to preheat car and it takes maybe 5 seconds to reflect the car is plugged in, change the graphic and allow climate control to be turned on, etc. The last few days though, it connects ok to the car but 1) doesn't show it as plugged in...

    Loose/rocking Driver's Seat with Squeak / Temp Fix?

    Took delivery recently of my new MX and all checked out good, except after driving it a bit now the driver's seat has become pretty loose. Upon each acceleration/deceleration (not hard even) it rocks a little forward/back, like slight tilt, feels like a quarter of inch maybe or so. On top of...

    Autopilot Price Increase to $3000 & $3500

    Was curious with 100D Ludicrous announcement if any other changes occur. In the design center Autopilot is now $3000 if purchased when ordering and $3500 if added later, clearly states that. Confirmed by looking at new design spec and old design spec of car I have waiting to be delivered (see...

    Just snagged a 90D Blue X from Inventory! :-)

    So, have had a Model S a while, 70D, but fell in love with the X and its roominess. Love the headroom, windshield, space in it, and higher ride height. Totally stoked now as was able to find a Model X 90D, deep blue, ultra white 6 seater, premium, subzero, and basically the setup I wanted in...

    Used Founder MX Value - thoughts?

    I'm in the market for a 90D and found one that ends with F003### that seems to be a pretty good deal. Overall it is loaded with everything except the UHF sound systems. Has a good paint color, leather, premium, subzero, and six seat config, along with high amp as well. Two questions and...

    Value/Interest in 70D

    Looking to potential move into a Model X here soon and was considering selling our MS 70D. Any thoughts on a good value for this listing? It is solid white, in pretty great condition (maybe 1 little paint chip), and its never had any issues. Garaged always and about 8000 miles on it in near...

    Legal Read - Service Agreement (+4 years similar to warranty) doesn't require before?

    Ok, just want a couple more opinions on this. The below paragraph is taken from the Extended Service Agreement, the one you can add up to 30 days prior to your initial warranty running out (i.e. your initial 4 yr/50,000 mi basic, 8 yr/unlimited mi powertrain warranty). You of course add...

    Recoding Unclear since last update 2.12.126

    Ever since installing 2.12.126 a few days ago, it seems like I can never get voice commands to work. They may work about 25% of the time - much worse than they used to be. Same commands, different times, after restarts, etc. Car states "Recording Unclear" most of the time... Anyone else...

    Service Was Good - Water in Lights & Other

    Well, had my first issues with MS here after 9 months or so fixed in a quick service visit. Overall, great job! 1. A little screw that came loose on armest made it rattle and shake, as well as feel flimsy. They fixed that easily. 2. Always had moisture in the back lights for many days...

    Where did my.tesla Services Purchase Area Go?

    Crazy Amps Toward End of Supercharging

    So right around the end of supercharging my 70D to 100%, around 238 miles, trying to get to 240, I had the amps really move around a lot for a while. It did end but is this normal at all? Is it charging different batter packs/cells at different rates to level the entire battery? They did seem...

    Comed RRTP (at least in Chicago area) is great!

    Just want to share for those of you that may have Comed as your electric provider and delivery service, the RRTP Program (Residential Real Time Pricing) is great for an MS it seems.

    70D Seems Like Most Efficient Buy For $

    Is the Model X not that different?

    Use HPWC with 14-50 - instructions?

    I'm thinking now I'd like to keep the free supplied adapter cable in the car with me and get the HPWC for home, even though we just installed the 14-50 plug. I don't mind using the HPWC at 40 amps still so was hoping there was a way to just wire it with a plug into the 14-50 outlet instead of...
