    Model X Refresh Front Door Closing More Difficult

    Hmmm... yours is stiffer than mine. The door builds up enough momentum when it closes by itself that I don't have the problem. I'm curious, if automatically closing the door doesn't work, what happens when you get in and step on the brake pedal? If that works then I don't understand how...

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

    They referred to it as the "front drive unit" which I believe is separate from the motors themselves but I can't swear to that. In any event, within a couple of days after taking delivery, as I was slowing down to make a turn I heard what sounded like a police or fire engine siren somewhere...

    Model X Refresh Front Door Closing More Difficult

    Yes, I have the same issue and didn't on my previous 2016 and 2019 MX. As others have said, the simplest solution is to use the app or fob or, as I've started doing, just walk away and let the car close the door for me.

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

    The front drive unit failed on my 22 MX within the first week after delivery in August. It took a while for them to diagnose the problem and the process of getting the part and scheduling the repair was not handled well at all, most especially their communications. I heard other customers...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    I agree with all that. I ordered mine a year ago when it was $30k less, and I'm not sure what I'd do if I had to decide now. I'd certainly give a long look at whatever BMW and Mercedes are selling too. It's just that Tesla has such a head start on everyone it's hard not to give that real...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    I'll assume you are correct about points 1-3, but all of that seems to relate to trips with a lot of folks and a lot of gear. Balance that against #5 and that gives a little more balance to the equation. You live in Northern California where that kind of stuff is more popular, but I honestly...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    I've had 3 MXs, the first two were 2016 and 2019, leased. I bought a refreshed LR which I ordered June 2021 with the intention of buying out my 2019 lease and using the profit as a down payment to buy the new one which was finally delivered at the end of August, 2022. Just for context, the...

    Faint beeping while driving 2022 model X

    I have it too and it was not present in my prior 2019 Raven MX. I just noticed it correlates with a thin green line that seems to represent regenerative braking. In my previous car I could set the level of regen but I can’t find that in this interface anywhere. I’m also getting a “gearbox fluid...

    So I get what you think about the yoke-- I've read a lot of your posts. I'm curious, do you have one?

    Further discussion and analysis on why the yoke is not good

    This thread has probably beaten this particular horse to death but I'll add my 2 cents anyway. I picked up my new MX Long Range last week and was a bit apprehensive about the yoke because of all the static in these forums. This my 3rd MX (2016 and 2019 Raven) and from the moment I drove it off...

    Model X noise poll

    Just took delivery of my 7-seat long range on Saturday. This is my 3rd MX (2016 and 2019 Reven) and this one is by far the quietest. No squeaks/rattles and road noise significantly reduced.

    Waiting Room: Model X 7 Seat ONLY

    I was scheduled to take delivery of my 2022 long-range Pearl White 7-Seat, FSD, black interior on Monday, August 29. This is my 3rd MX having previously leased a 2016 and 2019 Raven. I went to the dealer last Thursday to just walk around the car to see if there was anything glaring to be...

    Upgrading: Recent Model X Trade-in Values to Tesla

    After 14 months of waiting, I finally scheduled delivery of my 3rd MX for August 29. I previously leased the 2016 and 2019 models but am buying this one. My 2019 7-seat FSD Raven has only 15k miles, and I bought out the lease for 60k when it expired in June assuming I could sell it for a lot...

    Waiting Room: Model X 7 Seat ONLY

    Congratulations! 7 seaters are finally getting to Maryland! I just scheduled my delivery for the 29th in Owings Mills so now I've got to get my 2019 Raven sold. Tesla's offer was disappointing--only 80k--which surprised me. Car has only 15k miles, FSD, 7 seats. The only damage is a dent in...

    Pretty much identical to the X i am supposed to get next week. This will be my 3rd MX--leased the first 2, buying this one. I don't know if this is your first one, but I have a question for anyone who has recently taken delivery. Maybe this should be in another forum, but I'll ask it here. The...

    Waiting Room: Model X 7 Seat ONLY

    So, I'm in Maryland also and my delivery window is still August 17 - October 9. Curious to know what the differences may be that led to your delivery so much sooner. I ordered end of June 21--white, 7 seats, FSD. Did you get it? What do you think?

    Waiting Room: Model X 7 Seat ONLY

    I'm in Maryland too. So far almost all the deliveries seem to be in California. Is that a usual pattern? How long before deliveries move east?I'm a July 2021 order with a current est delivery of August 17-October 12. White/black, FSD.

    2022.8.3 update: where are the release notes?

    I installed it last night and did notice one improvement of great significance to me. A prior release restricted the height of the browser to about 2/3 of the screen instead of full height as it used to be. Since my primary use is to monitor my email, which has many, many folders, that was a...

    Utter disbelief at the yoke buttons

    I have a 7 seater LR on order with the yoke. I ordered it last July because my current MX lease expires in July, and that's now the projected delivery date. This will be my 3rd MX and I was really looking forward to the yoke (and still am) but your post and a video review does raise concern...

    Waiting Room: Model X Long Range Only

    If your new delivery date holds you can ignore this, but others have had March dates briefly and then they go back to July. My second MX lease (Raven 7-seater) is scheduled to expire in July, so last July I ordered a new MX LR 7-seater thinking the resale value of my current car--only 12,000...

    Will Tesla ever offer Lease buyout?

    I have a 2019 MX and my lease does permit a buyout. Last July I ordered a new one (delivery's now been pushed to July) but I'm going to buy this one because Tesla won't permit buyouts on new MX leases. The reason is obvious--it there's such a profit to be made on the resale, they want it.

    Model X delivery delayed; anyone else?

    July 21 order, 7-seat LR. Now bumped to July like everyone else. There's no way they will all of a sudden be able to deliver all those cars in July.

    Screen shot of a model x showing what V11 looks like

    Fortunately my browser stopped crashing too. But this is especially odd since other apps do go higher on the screen so I don't understand why this one does not. Perhaps because it's now enclosed in the "Entertainment" window.

    HUD

    I had one in my BMW 750 before I got the Tesla and really loved it. That and the seats are the two areas where the BMW was superior to the MX. I've looked at the Hudway but as far as I'm concerned it is a kludge and really doesn't do what an integrated HUD can. And who wants a device like...

    Screen shot of a model x showing what V11 looks like

    So, I've noticed one annoying thing which I don't seem to be able to fix. When I open the browser it only fills 2/3 of the screen, leaving a big gap at the top. Even though the little drag bar is at the top, it won't go up--just down. That means you really can't see a full page of many...

    2021 Holiday Update - GARBAGE!

    P.S. Although I haven't verified in the car itself, in the App's owner's manual updated for this release, under "Using the Touchscreen/Controls/Autopilot there's a setting for "Blind Spot Camera" which when turned on displays the corresponding side camera when a turn signal is engaged.

    So, tentatively very good New Year surprise. Yesterday when I got in my car the screen was displaying release notes for V. 2021.44.25.2. Dunno if that's on the Model S yet, but it makes major changes to the user interface. One of the most prominent of the new features is a redesigned and...
