    Water Leak into Trunk

    After a few rainy days, I started noticing water build up in my MX trunk, it is hardly noticeable because the build up is in the compartment in the trunk area that's usually covered. I sent it to Sterling, VA service center, and they were not able to fix the issue after 2 days. I wonder if...

    3 years on, I have decided to move on from my beloved X

    Well, give another brand a try, and let us know if you miss the Model X, or the grass is truly greener the other side.

    Receiving FM radio with HW 3.0 in Drive-in Theatre

    We went there twice with our kids the past couple of weeks, they have a blast! I also have fun watching Audi, Mercedes and Landrover owners struggling to turn off their cars' headlights and interior lights. Camp mode is a great idea, I am going to give that a try next time! In case you are in...

    Receiving FM radio with HW 3.0 in Drive-in Theatre

    Thanks! I was under the impression the new HW3 would eliminate FM/AM analog radios, as those got their MCU upgraded to the latest HW have reported the analog FM was lost but HD radio still works.

    Receiving FM radio with HW 3.0 in Drive-in Theatre

    We will soon look into a new Tesla, but just realize HW 3.0 may not come with the good old FM radio anymore. It is probably not needed most of the time, except when we go to our beloved Drive-in Theatre where sound is broadcast in FM. We would love to use Tesla's own audio, but wondering if...

    Cybrtrk RN #

    Mine were placed immediate after the website announcement, got a few errors and ended up putting in 3 orders. The earliest one happens to be 112757xxx, it is going to take a painfully long 3-yr wait, but that gives me some time to pay off my MX.

    Thinking of buying a used performance Model S, and have some questions

    Hi, I am currently a happy Model X owner, and am thinking of getting a used Model S too, but the ideal price point would be around $35k for a performance model. That basically means I would probably look into model year around 2013 / 2014 with 60k+ miles. Without knowing the quality and...

    Buying advice (2016 Tesla Model X 60D)

    I am not too sure X60D's range, and how you would use it. We love our Model X, and I almost wouldn't drive any other cars including Model S. So I wonder if it would be worth to get an X60D with shorter range in the big state of Texas, not to mention its hardware is not capable for full...

    Help!!! P90D with ludicrous and ludicrous plus

    5 seat mx 75 or audi e tron

    Electric car's range is the most crucial and most practical factor, no matter how big the battery is, chances you run into range anxiety would happen, more so when you have a car with shorter range and smaller charging network. If you download PlugShare, and limit the plugs to CCS, you can get...

    String of issues with 7 months old Model X

    I didn't get my X new, so I didn't have any of the fresh-off-the-production-line issues. I am happy to say 20,000+ miles of ownership the car has been problem free. Center screen black out is similar to smartphone hangup, a simple reset should do the trick. I have done it a few times even...

    Tesla X Problems after 135000 km

    I would be more afraid of the issues with a Mercedes of this number of kms/miles. I had a Mercedes before, and paid more than 2x what you paid to fix, key drum, retractable roof, check engine light (almost an annual problem), etc.

    Is the Y/3 similarity a problem, or irrelevant?

    iPad and iPhone are different in sizes, but they don't stop people from buying both. I don't see one would cannibalize sales of the other like Wall Street would predict. They are just different form factors for different usages.

    Would you recommend Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for MX?

    Very nice and tight. The Pro Series I have extend a bit too far that backing in with the red pillar right by the super charger would be impossible.

    Would you recommend Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for MX?

    The Pro Series 65153 I got weighs about 60 lbs. I am a short and athletically challenged, so installing it took a little bit of deep breath and wiggling, but I wouldn't say it would be hard given I could get it done under two minutes. The item feels sturdy and it does not sway. I have gone on...

    Do I have rain sensing wipers??

    I have AP1 and the auto wiper works great for me here! I don't think you would need anything special other than turning on the setting, and also adjust the wiper dial to 3rd marking I believe.

    Supercharger - Haymarket, VA

    It was Saturday evening (Dec. 29). When I got there was just one Model S, but 20 minutes later it got crowded. I check the stations' capacity on my Tesla app every now and then, it was barely busy at the moment. It is a great addition and probably the first along I-66.

    Would you recommend Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for MX?

    So I went with Pro Series 65153 carrier. We wanted to see how much we would rely on the carrier before we go more pricy sophisticated solution such as Stowaway. The carrier is very easy to install, and it does not block the rare gate either. Supercharging was rather easy, we were able to back...

    Charging Near Massanutten, VA

    Frequent Tire Punctures (4 in 7 months) Killing My Love For My Model X- Avg Every six weeks

    I have put on 20,000 miles on my Model and had no such experience. A few years back when I had the first-year-model of Chevy Volt, it had tire punctures just as frequently as your Model X, but driving other cars of mine didn't seem to have such bad luck, so I can understand your frustration.
