    eMMC Recall Service Causing MCU Fail?

    I had the recall service to upgrade the eMMC card from 8GB to 64GB and I noticed after that that my BT and Wifi no longer worked. Because we’re not driving much these days (working from home) and we went on vacation shortly after the service, I didn’t book a service appointment until about 3...

    my fav new thing from V10

    Question: Does V10 apply to the early Model X's (late 2015/early 2016)? Just did an update and car says software is up to date, but appears to be on 2019.20.4.2 only.

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Don't know, but I would call Tesla to get a definitive answer. I ended up buying both prepaid service plan and the extended warranty, btw.

    FINALLY!!! Maintenance Plans and Extended Service Agreement

    Between synthetic oil changes, failed ignition coils, CV boots, etc, I spent more than $1000/yr on the average on my Audi A4 and that was a $30K car. Similarly on our Lexus RX330 - at least $1000/yr on the average for repairs, major and minor services, etc on a $45K car. Getting a $3-4K repair...

    FINALLY!!! Maintenance Plans and Extended Service Agreement

    I don't love the pricing (or relatively small savings in the case of the prepaid maintenance plans), but we purchased both. We like the car and plan to keep it. The way I look at it is while I could save some $ by skipping some of the annual maintenance visits, it's not really worth it to me...

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Still no sign of the extended warranty or prepaid service plans on the Model X, eh?

    How far will Tesla go to fix alignment issues (doors, chrome trim, etc.)

    Here's a pic of the driver's side FWD before going to the SC: And after - you can see the improvement in alignment both at the roofline and the chrome: Another angle (before): And after: While there was significant improvement, I'd say it's still not as good as the passenger's side...

    How far will Tesla go to fix alignment issues (doors, chrome trim, etc.)

    We got our X back from the SC after about 4-5 working days there - we had a driver's side FWD misalignment that was cosmetic - door always opened and closed fine. They didn't take it back to the factory. A team came out to the SC and worked on alignment. It's much better now and still seems...

    Split in Seat Seam (2nd row, middle seat) - Anyone Else Have This?

    OK, good question, and I have to revise my initial comments. It's not really a split seam. Those two sections are not sewn or fastened together at all. I can stick a finger into that gap the whole length of that section and separate the two sections/cushions. I think it's supposed to be...

    Split in Seat Seam (2nd row, middle seat) - Anyone Else Have This?

    We have the ultra-white seats - when showing how the second row seats move forward, someone noticed how there was a split in the seam area on the middle seat. Seems to be there on both sides around the same location. Does anyone else have this? You have to offset the outer seats from the...

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    The current pricing on Tesla's website is $2100 for 4yrs and $4000 for 8yrs for the S, so the 8yr just saves you a bit more than double the cost of 4yrs. Maybe if you push it they'll sell one to you for the X, or maybe it depends who you get on the phone?

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    I called the Fremont SC and they confirmed that there's no prepaid option being offered yet. They said not to worry about the 60 day limit and there would likely be a notification for when the prepaid option was offered.
  13. Sony SS-M7

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Assuming the 8yr prepaid is $4000 like the S, $500 per year seems very reasonable to me. For me, I'd rather mitigate the risk of service pricing going way up over time - you never know when making the SC a profit center (like most auto manufacturers) will become a necessity, especially if the...

    Did those who ordered the Accessory Hitch, get that or actually a REAL Towing Package?

    I don't have any concrete plans to tow, so it's not a pressing need to find out, but it would be nice if Tesla actually would tell us (if asked) whether the reinforcements were there or not. As mentioned in other threads as well (w.r.t. Active spoiler for instance), Tesla may have decided to...

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Only thing is that you supposedly only have 60 days after delivery to buy the prepaid service plan - at least that's true for the S. So either they waive that 60 day requirement for the X or they set a price. I'll just call Tesla today and clarify this. I'm going to speculate that the...

    Did those who ordered the Accessory Hitch, get that or actually a REAL Towing Package?

    I haven't taken a look to see what it looks like under the car at the attachment point. If someone can tell me what to look for, I can have a look.

    Did those who ordered the Accessory Hitch, get that or actually a REAL Towing Package?

    Here's what came with mine - I just ordered the accessory hitch. . . Is this the full towing package?

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Also, does anyone actually see the option to purchase the pre-paid service plan on their My Tesla page? I don't see it on mine.

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    I'm definitely leaning toward pre-paying for the 8 years because I plan to keep the car for at least 8 years and I can't see (personally) trying to save $ by skipping any of these annual checks. I don't mind spending $500/yr on servicing and saving the average of $100/yr by prepaying - interest...

    Model X: Average Wh/mile Tracker

    About 375-380 for me, driving pretty conservatively. 20" tires, 90D, 70% city, 30% highway.

    How far will Tesla go to fix alignment issues (doors, chrome trim, etc.)

    We got ours on 3/31 too. We have an alignment issue with one of the FWD also. It closes fine, but you can tell it sits high and the chrome trim doesn't align well and the door itself isn't flush/level with the rest of the roof. We noticed this when we picked up the car and they created a due...

    I don't see an option to buy it online yet. I'll ask today at the social event of it'll be up soon.

    TESLA Weekend Social

    We're attending the one at Santana Row in San Jose. We've been to the factory 3-4 times in the last couple of months, so thought we'd try a different location.

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    I think the service plans are, but can't see any pricing for the extended warranty. I'm thinking if you trade it in, you lose it, but it would be transferable to a new owner if you sold it. Just guessing though.

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Did you buy it? How much was the extended warranty?

    Thoughts on Prepaid Service and Extended Warranty

    Are you all planning on taking your X's in once a year? If so, how many are planning on doing the prepaid option? For the 8yr, I think you save $800 on today's pricing and I'm guessing the cost of service over time will only go up if it changes at all. I don't know the cost of the extended...

    Could EPA Range approximations for 90D be low to help sell more P90D ?

    I don't think I'd get full rated range on my 90D based on about 300mi put on our X so far. Our average wh/mi is like 370-380 in CA weather and I don't think I'm even driving very aggressively.

    Model X and S Symposium

    I went. It was low-key, with just some Tesla employees answering questions any attendees had. We were there about an hour and had several of our questions answered.

    Model X Sunshade

    I went to an "owner's symposium" yesterday and a SC said they'll be sent out or available for pick up when ready, but no ETA given.

    Falcon Wing Door "stuck"

    Ours was stuck in an intermediate state and we got 3 beeps and no movement when hitting the touchscreen control, inside pillar control, or red button on the FWD. We were told to press and HOLD the pillar control until the door moved. This worked for us.
