    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    They were purchased from a reputable dealer here in L.A. Not sure if they were specifiaclly for my hub size/offset but they were one of the options for my car. Wow, never heard of a hub-centric mounting spacer. It sure would be good to have a reliable way of mounting them back on after tire...

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    Thnka for thinking outside the box Sperkin! Went to check but all tires are in their right place. I wonder if it has to do with the position of the wheel on the axle, meaning they found the right bolt /hole combination by accident.

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    Since I started this thread a while ago, I wanted to report back and admit I was wrong in asking for an attorney. As some on here have suspected, the issue were the wheels/tires. I finally had the chance to swap from a friend's X' 20' wheels and the vibration was gone. We put my wheels on his...

    Used Model X, Year to Buy?

    I got lucky mostly with a pretty pristine car at delivery. The car had some shuddering around 75mph which turned out to be the tires I had put on. Some creaking from front axle when slow maneuvering which was repaired and has now come back. Just a little annoyance. A rattling noise from the...

    Used Model X, Year to Buy?

    Hi Joe, I see you're in CA like me. I have just very recently toyed with the idea of selling my X from Dec 2018. Have not advertised it anywhere yet and don't know the pricing either. Once you've gotten some opinions on here about which year and so on, let me know if you'd like to tal;k sopme...

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    Yes, that will be my next course of action. Business is been keeping me from it.

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    Yes, it was the same on mine. They lubricated points and called it a day.
  9. NoSoup4U!

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    Sorry to hear your story. I can imagine the frustration you're going through. I haven't had the time yet to swap my wheels to possibly eliminate my shudder. But the clicking noise at slow speeds is back just like before the repair.

    Phantom hard braking on autopilot

    Same year MX, same software version. Started to happen to me again as well. It had become noticably better in 2019 but now I've had it happen 2 times in the last week or so. Not driving every day.
  13. NoSoup4U!

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    Yes, that is my thinking too. I’ll go to them when time allows and ask for a swap and test drive. If, for some reason, the wheels are the culprit I’ll report back. Regarding the clicking noise at slow speed turning hasn’t gone away completely. It’s less now after the upper control arms swap but...

    Model X Wannabe: How to convince the wife?

    You may want to tell her that you can get this amazing car for a huge discount if you're going for a pre-raven 2018 or 2019 model. I have one of those and, since Tesla dropped the price on these, our cars have lost considerable value. It does NOT need to be a $100k car at all. While the...

    Model X section 168 bonus depreciation

    You are correct. Many CPAs are not familiar with it and find it too good to be true. Either make them review the appropriate sections in the tax code or find a CPA with experience with these things. I had to educate my CPA as well and he reassured himself with 2 of his colleagues. One said yes...
  16. NoSoup4U!

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    I didn't ask for one. At this point it is quite clear to me that the suspension and axle assembly may not be up to the task in the long run. Just returned from Tesla and the vibration at higher speeds is unchanged. Off to the tire guys when I have time.
  17. NoSoup4U!

    need a Lemon Law Attorney please!

    I ended up finding a reputable attorney via Google. I should have realized that this forum might not be the best way to find someone like that. And, it's understandable. I was a raving fan once too. I am picking up my car from Tesla tonight because they fixed the upper control arms to get rid of...

    Our Model S lease is up beginning of October in 3.5 months. So far, not a beep from Tesla.

    The shudder The acceleration shudder appeared first with the original 20" wheels. The 22" wheels were installed by a reputable and experienced tire shop in L.A that's been much longer in business than Telsa builds cars. The X has regularly shown increased rear inner tire wear, no matter how...

    my family has two Teslas. I had the shudder poblem on my X beginning of last year. Since I don't often floor the car, I decided to hold off until a fix was available and possible other problems arise on the car to have it all taken care of at once. fast forward to beginning of this year, the...

    Does anyone have a referral for an experienced attorney, preferably in the Greater L.A. area, who has dealt with Tesla Service before? Lemon Law attorney or something similar. I am finally giving up cutting them slack. Thanks in advance!

    Request/Vote to have Waze built into the Tesla map

    Sorry, because of their constant monitoring of your location EVEN WHEN PARKED, I’m not a fan of Waze. And their routing through hard to exit side streets isn’t doing it for me either.

    Vendor What is a "Tupperware Delete" ?!!!

    It’d be interesting to see what it looks like on a midnight silver grey. That’s an elegant color which could really benefit from ‘classing it up’.

    Safety issue: backup camera should override other UI when in reverse.

    It’s a glitch. Does not happen very often. I had it happen once in over a year of ownership. Put it back into park and back into reverse, that should do the trick.

    Noise from passenger front door - like a loose nut in door

    The ratcheting noise when the car brakes hard while on TACC is your brake pedal slamming to the floor. The 'loose nut' noise from the passenger front door is Elon's wedding ring.

    Hazy Front Windshield Tint

    On mine, I don't see much hazing on the windshield at all. I had some light hazing on the side windows with sun at low angles in the morning or evening. Brought it back to Extreme Autowerks and they redid for free. It's now almost completely gone so that I can live with it.

    Hazy Front Windshield Tint

    You are definitely better off with a tint on the X, even if it’s not perfect. In the summer, they just get too hot inside. Any reason you didn’t go down to 70%? It doesn’t trip the popos and gives you more heat rejection.
  30. NoSoup4U!

    Hazy Front Windshield Tint

    Yes, my front is 70% and it’s perfectly clear. I don’t remember the brand but it’s the best film extreme Autowerks use.

    Hazy Front Windshield Tint

    I see you’re from LA. I’m no expert but it looks like a botched install. Did you choose a well reviewed and recommended shop? I’ve got mine done at extreme Autowerks in Brea. Long drive but worth it.

    Enjoy a weekend on Highway One and Monterey, completed by a visit to the Tesla Factory!

    Just an FYI, the deadline for reservations was last weekend. I am still getting inquiries but our group is confirmed with Tesla and you will have to make your own reservations directly with Tesla. Their email is [email protected] Good Luck!

We currently have 17 confirmed guests and room for 7 more. I’ll submit our request to Tesla by the weekend - if I hear from you before then I can...

    Any improvement in windshield on X

    Tinting the windows and windshield has made a huge difference for me in the heat reflection. Without it, you’re sitting in a greenhouse.

    SIGNATURE RED X LUDICROUS - Classic car in future?

    Maybe compare it to the first apple computers because that’s what they are - computers on wheels. I am not familiar with today’s value of early Macs.

    Problem with online order: deadlocked with no ETA

    I'd go to a reputable tire shop and buy my wheels there. More choice and regular delivery times.

    Model X Shut Down while Driving - WARNING!

    Maybe you’re right and I am naive to think our voices can be heard. But then again, he just replied to a number of people on his truck unveil tweet today.

    Model X Shut Down while Driving - WARNING!

    I took the liberty of tweeting this to Elon. You might want to do the same and, maybe, someone gets through to him. Tesla Management needs to wake up to these cases and overhaul their service policies.

    Model X Shut Down while Driving - WARNING!

    This is unbelievable! I’d tweet that to Elon. I don’t understand how Tesla can let these things happen, screwing their customers and nothing seems to change. They’re riding their company into the ground with this dismal service policy. What else needs to happen for Tesla to wake up?

    New MX with black screens

    I’m talking about the terminals on the actual battery but then again, I never had to do it on my MX. Don’t know how hard it is to get that tub out. Btw, there might always be a little sparks during the process of removal/install. Once you loosened it, take it off in a quick motion.

    New MX with black screens

    The plus pole is the last to go off and the first to go back on. Taking the clamps off, You start with the minus pole, never the plus. That’s why you got sparks. If the plus pole is removed you quickly discharge the battery through the still connected minus pole. Don’t know how long your battery...

    Wheels Sizes - 21"

    I’m sorry, I don’t remember anymore. It might have been 8 front and 9.5 in the rear. You’ll want to go to an experienced tire shop who has done lots of MXs. I don’t know where you live but Nick Mora at Globe Tires and Motorsports in Los Angeles is a Great and knowledgeable guy. 310-836-0804. He...

    Wheels Sizes - 21"

    Congratulations 0P and welcome to the club! I paid about $2,800 for my 22s if I recall correctly. Got $800 for my original 20s. Go aftermarket, you’ll have way more options. The ride is just a tiny bit stiffer which makes this boat even more fun to steer through turns! I love the ride.

    Would you buy another MX after having a lemon?

    Hi OP, when reading your post, I get the feeling that you would very much miss the times when you’re MX DID drive and you had fun with it. (Damn, I get already miffed when I’m driving some other car and the door doesn’t even close when I press the brakes, ha ha!) As there is nothing that is...

    WARNING!!! Screws holding jack pad to frame are ALL loose - jack pad may fall off car

    Thank you CTN! I just checked mine and one bolt on the front right could be twisted by hand! It was halfway out of the thread. A couple of others were not tight either, so your tip saved me from headache down the road, literally.

    New EV Purchase

    I stand corrected. Multiple short trips do require more juice. Probably not a lot more but nevertheless. What they don’t add is accelerated wear and tear. On an ICE car, the short trips are what is harmful to the engine. The ev is much better for that scenario.

    New EV Purchase

    Welcome to the X fold Reggie! My 2018 X100D has a real world range of at least 230-250 miles. The raven is even better I believe. You’ll be fine. Install a charger at home, so you’re leaving every morning with enough juice. Starts and stops don’t matter to an ev much. Stop and go traffic...
