    I’ve noticed the back say “dual motor” but descriptions differ. Sometimes it will say long range and sometimes it will say long range plus. What was the difference in range and year on the two?

    Used X

    I test drove a Y and its too small. I'm looking at used X (prices are all high) and I forget but there is a way to figure out if the 2018 models have a newer chip/faster interface. Can someone tell me how to confirm this with the seller? Is there any harm in buying a 2016 or 2017 and are all...

    2021 refresh mx

    Is it me or do I think the refresh is a dumb idea? First of all they raised the price by $10k. Did they increase the range to 360 miles? I can’t recall what the long range was before. But the 0-60 dropped from 4.4 to 3.8. It’s not even a refresh other than a slightly different front bumper...

    2019 model x shows 328 miles

    I spoke to a sales associate about a few use 2019 model access that they have. They say it’s only 328 miles because the 2020 models have 351 miles. I asked if you can do a simple software update to get the increase mileage and they said they do not believe so. Interview owners do this because I...

    I am on the look out for a black Model X. Some of the used car prices are pretty decent but they aren't the color I want. An option is to pay to wrap the car. Inozetek is supposedly the best quality brand right now. Including the door jambs are extra of course. Has anyone done this? Any...

    Do they fix cars from ev-cpo thru tesla?

    I noticed some damage to cars like scratched dash and sometimes wheel curbs. Tesla used to fix these used cars before shipment. Do they not anymore? If I have questions, how do I contact someone? I never get tesla to call me back, whenever I submit for feedback online.

    Vegan vs black premium

    Close to pulling trigger on 2018 MX (not sold by Tesla)

    Hi all, Looks like prices are finally coming down for used Model X. For a 2018 75D Model X, I see some around the $65k mark. I am looking for a 6 seater, maybe 7 seater works. 6 seaters are harder to find and seem to command a higher price for some reason. I know that its not a Raven model...

    CA - Orange County Incentives

    I live in Irvine. From the tesla website Electric Vehicle & Solar Incentives it seems like there are a few incentives for buying a tesla and installing a charger at home. The city of Irvine does not have anything. It looks like the only ones applicable are the PG&E $800 and SCE $1000...

    Exterior refresh by this year?

    Could an interior refresh occur this year on the model X? Any possibility of a exterior refresh? Been waiting to pull the trigger but waiting for them to make the exterior nicer and less “van-like”. Heard it might happen but now hearing it won’t happen this year.

    Is it finally time?

    i just realized the price drop on the MX. Faster 0-60 time and more range. The 75D with 6 seat configuration is now $81k + $6k = $87k brand new! Not too bad. Feel bad for the folks that ordered right before this minor update. Although I hear the interior refresh is coming. When is that...

    Existing inventory pricing

    I noticed that prices have somewhat dropped for existing 2019 inventory. I found MX 100D with very low miles starting in $89,000. There are some that are $10k more and I’m comparing the options and other than wheels and lighter headliner, there isn’t much difference. So why the huge...

    Red light cameras

    I went thru an intersection today and the light turned red. I read that as long as the car is within the intersection when light turns red, you are technically fine. That made me think and brought me back to driving 101. Where do your tires have to be when the light turns red to be ok? And...

    Toll surcharge on Uber

    Today, I took local streets using Uber. They charged me a toll surcharge fee and I told them that they should remove it because these were local streets and I did not take any toll roads.

    New gen latches

    I was under the impression that the new door latches that made the operation and opening and closing smoother on the MX was for the front doors and the falcon wing doors. Tesla told me that gen 2 latches are only for the front doors. They told me that the falcon wing door latches are still the...

    Inside door sensors

    I read that the 2016 MX did not have inside door sensors so if you are standing underneath the falcon wing doors, they close on you. Isn't that a safety issue, especially with young kids? Can you get Tesla to install them since its a safety issue? When were the inside door sensors installed...

    Model X Depreciation
