    Tires rotation maintenance not being done?

    That article is false. The rear has toe and camber adjustability using eccentric cam bolts. But to get more adjustability you’ll need adjustable camber links

    Raleigh NC SC is terrible

    Raleigh service center has been trying to fill a Service Manager position for some time now. Will be a tough job to get that location to where it needs to be.

    2 week old Model X Plaid and Left Rear Drive Unit Failed

    Imagine how few MXP’s are built. Tiny percentage of Tesla’s total build. The fact that a brand new car needs to be in for these issues (let alone for 3 weeks) is astounding. My 2022 MXP was in for 4 days and I was totally PO’d. If they can’t get it right on their “top-of-the-line” vehicle...

    Tires rotation maintenance not being done?

    Good article on Tesla alignment and tire wear. What Wears Out Tires On A Tesla Faster? Toe or Camber?

    Raleigh NC SC is terrible

    I can no longer recommend Tesla vehicles to anyone due to the horrible service! If the Raleigh, NC service center is indicative of Tesla service overall then I cannot see Tesla continuing their current rate of vehicle sales. I am on my 2nd Tesla vehicle (2020 MS and 2022 MXP). The service there...

    The dreaded "BMS_s172 Vehicle may not start alert" and a positive service experience (Raleigh NC)

    Do you mean Raleigh, NC? If so, my experience there recently was absolutely horrible.

    2 week old Model X Plaid and Left Rear Drive Unit Failed

    Man, the rear drive unit failing on a brand new vehicle! So bad. I took delivery of MXP in Aug 2022 and brought it in for service on some very minor issues. The way that was handled was so horrible that I sure hope I do not need to bring it in for anything more serious. Tesla service (Raleigh...

    Model X Plaid, question about range!

    I too opted for the MXP because of quicker delivery. From the time I made my reservation until I took delivery was 3 weeks (August 2022). I have read some things which indicated that having 3 motors also helps with driving in snow due to the way the torque vectoring is configured. Anyone heard this?

    Tesla Model X Plaid screen completely dead

    That happened to me with my MXP… center screen would not come on when I entered the vehicle. However, the soft reset fixed the issue. I would recommend that you send Tesla a message using the APP (Service section). They will be able to remotely diagnose a bit more and maybe give you some...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I had constant problems with my Gen3 connector back in 2021. Was never able to resolve so I went back to using the Gen2. Gen2 is far superior IMO. Higher output, longer cable, zero issues.

    Model X: Average Wh/mile Tracker

    I just returned from a 2,000 mile, 2 week long road trip in my 2022 Model X Plaid (1 month old). I averaged 322 Wh/mile.

    2021 plaid. Wh/mi

    I just returned from a 2,000 mile road trip in my 2022 Model X Plaid (1 month old). I averaged 322 Wh/mile. I am still reluctant to let the battery run below 10% so I spent more time supercharging than I probably needed to. So happy with my MXP.

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    Took delivery of MXP this morning. Mfg date is July 2022. Took it for a 200 mile drive and triple checked everything - most especially the many items I’ve read about on this message board. I have yet to find a single issue. My 2020 Model S LR had some fit/finish issues- panel gaps were pretty...

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    My MXP delivery is scheduled for 8/18/22. I drove over to Tesla today (a day earlier) just to see if I could scope it out. Found the vehicle on the lot and spent an hour going over exterior in great detail. Very very pleasantly surprised. Panel gaps looked wonderful. No misalignments on the...

    What was your reason for rejecting the VIN (curious)?

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    Delivery is scheduled for Aug 18. It’s a low VIN though. 353xxx. Reservation made on 8/1. Called Tesla Sales on 8/5 to see if they had a new 22 MXP which was available. They found one in GA and had it shipped to NC. Total time from reservation to delivery will be 18 days. I’m thinking I should...

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    I have a F353 VIN that I reserved on 8/1 and was assigned soon thereafter. It is not yet delivered. My method to secure a VIN so quickly was to call Tesla directly and ask them to search their inventory of new, 2022 vehicles which were available. So happened that they found one that met all...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    I am seeing more 2022 MXP’s becoming available from local Tesla locations. My hunch is that these are built for a reservation but then never delivered for one reason or another. Perhaps some who originally reserved a MXP changed to MX due to pricing??

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    I ordered my MXP on 8/1/22 and got a VIN on 8/422. VIN: 3532xx. Is this a reject? Looks like an older VIN

    Thank you. Do you mean, “NOT too risky’” as in I should do the trip?

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Picking up 2022 Model X Plaid the day before I take it on a 2 week, >1k mile road trip. I am very nervous to do this based on some of these threads. Would appreciate some input: is this too risky?

    Wall Connector Issue - Help!

    Same issue with my Model S and Gen 3 Wall Connector (have been using this Wall Connector at 48 amps for the past 6 months with no problems). Plug it in and within 1-2 minutes charge port lights up red and message "Charging Interrupted". I am not using the factory supplied 110V charger (1kW) and...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    Yeah, great suggestion. Do you have any specific wiring issues that I might look for? I had the wiring checked when the first one went bad (used a different electrician than the one who installed it). Checked out fine.

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I am on my second Gen 3 Wall Connector/Charger. Purchased first one in June 2020. Wired to 60 amp breaker and delivered 48 amps 237 volts to vehicle. After 20-30 minutes it throttled back to 24 amps and was seeing an error code on LED lights (3 red blinks). Worked with Tesla support and they...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    Received a replacement unit back in August 2020. Installed and sent bad Gen 3 unit back. New unit worked fine for a few months and same problem returned. Three red blinks but charge continues at a reduced 20 amp rate. Arghhh. So frustrating. Anyone else have this problem after replacing a faulty...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I have installed the replacement unit and have done several charges lasting 2 or more hours. All have remained at 48A throughout the entire charge. I did notice a difference between my original Gen 3 Wall Connector and the replacement (even though they have the same Part number: 1457768-01-F)...

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    Update: received replacement Gen 3 Wall Connector and installed today (it's the same part number BTW: 1457768-01-F). Commissioned and setup with 60A/240V supply and 48A charging- same as defective unit. Performed my first charge which went for 1hr 30min at the full 48A. This is the longest it...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I just received a notice from FedEx that a shipment is inbound. It does not indicate that it is from Tesla, but I assume it is that based on the details of the shipment : [Parts Distribution Center Lath, 401-501 Nestle Way Lathrop, CA US 95330] weighing 10 pounds. Will arrive 8/14. Amazing...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    Agree that the support people are very attentive and seems like they're doing the best they can given the circumstances. But as for Tesla engineering on this issue it's an epic fail. Not a word on what, how, where when, etc. No communications at all. I'm still limping along with my "waiting to...

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    I never meant to imply that any one individual at Tesla deserves a D-minus for Customer Service. Every person I have spoken with has been delightful and helpful to the best of their ability. It is the customer service process that has been horrible. When there is a problem which requires 5...

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    And you know the details of how their process works because.......... Your explanation seems the more plausible though. I did attempt to limit charging to 36A and it was OK for 10 mins and then dropped to 24A once again.

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    Spoke with Tesla Wall Charger support (again!!) this morning. This is my 4th call to them and I have received NOTHING since they said they elevated it to Level 2 (whatever that means). Within an hour after the call today I received an email with a FedEx return label. No instructions, no...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    So lowered it to 24A... then what? Did they say to increase it back to 48A at some point? I have the connector on a 60A circuit in order to take full advantage of its 48A capability

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    Do I change this setting on the Wall Connector Settings or in my Model S? When I tried to change the power output on the Wall Connector settings I get this error message: “Set circuit breaker rating for the Wall Connector Forbidden”
