    Model X redesign: What's the chance of it having no FWDs?

    Also came from an S to the X. Beside easier for front in/egress, the FWDs were the main feature we were interested in. They work especially well with infants and toddlers. Keep the X.

    X or S?

    We had an S for 18 months but, my wife in particular, was uneasy driving it in town. After an afternoon trial with an X, we traded the S for an X. Visibility, ride height, eases of ingress, more room for painting canvases, and the falcon wing doors. We have grand children and getting them...

    I was scheduled for a ranger visit next Monday and in preparation the Tech resent my last update, 2020 20.12xxx, to reinstall.

    Worth trading in MS for a MX?

    We started out with an MS mostly because our ride in an MX 7seat demo scared us off because of its size, looking back at all of the head rests, it felt and looked like a bus. Besides the MS was beautiful. Eighteen months later and with a toddler, we were feeling that the low slung S was not as...

    @TOBASH. Thanks for the detailed reply. Never thought about rebooting the car once in awhile. Or adding rain X directly into the washer reservoir. Among your other suggestions.

    Infrequent Maintenance points for MX

    Now that there is essentially no scheduled services for Teslas, has anyone started their own routine for such items as lubricating door hinges, trunk/frunk latches etc? How about those moving parts in the FWDs? Simple items. Thanks for comments and directions.

    How reliable is model x?

    You have that right, the X is really complex. We have a September 2017 build with almost 30k miles on the clock. The only issue has been the actuator for the drive's door and it was replaced by mobile service in our garage. As for comfort and driving enjoyment, it is unmatched. Seeing the...

    whats the difference between tesla model x 2017 and 2018

    We have a September 2017 build model X. It does have the 2.5 hardware. At about the same time, Tesla changed the headlights to "dynamic", ie would throw light in the direction of a turn. Our paperwork indicated that dynamic lights were included however, we learned later that there was a...

    Clicking sound after last update

    First, when discussing issues that may be related the updates, it helps to specify the version. What I have noticed with 38f55d9f9205 us a chirping noise for about 10 seconds when I first get into the car. It happens whether connected or unconnected checked and whether it is in...

    Potential long term owner....need advice

    We started with a Model S and traded it for an X. We also sold our mini van when we ordered the X. Bare in mind, owning a Tesla is an adventure. Charging on the road usually requires a bit of planning and the time for charging offers a chance to sample places you may not have otherwise sought...

    WTB: Model X or Model S

    Make your hunt and choice easier by spending some time in an X and an S. These cars are very different. The X is big, tall, wide and heavy. Visibility is incredible. Ingress and egress is easier in an X because it sits higher. Our first Tesla was an S and we really enjoyed it but two years...

    Size of USB drive needed for TeslaCam?

    Hot Damn, it worked and was able to view what was recorded on my Mac. Next question: Is there a way to see the space in the folder? I mean available space or, because it is the only folder would it then be 256 GB in the case of a 256 GB stick? Thank you all,

    Size of USB drive needed for TeslaCam?

    Whatthe2, here it is. When I go to format the option is "MOS-DOS (FAT) but as soon as I execute the format, it changes to MOS-DOS (FAT32). Also maybe I do not know how to add a folder? Thanks

    Size of USB drive needed for TeslaCam?

    Re: your #5, How can I use the iMac disk utility to increase file size above 32GB? My 32 GB stick works fine with format at "MOS-DOS(FAT32). When I format the same on my 256 GB stick, the car will not recognize the stick. Thank you for your patience and time.

    Size of USB drive needed for TeslaCam?

    Anyone know where one might get a charge in Cuba, NM?

    We want to take our X into Chaco Canyon. We can charge in Farmington on our way in. Coming out we would like to continue on to Albuquerque. An overnight charge from even a 120 V source in Cuba would get us into ABQ easily. The route is 224 miles Farmington/CCanyon/ABQ. Doable but tight...

    Has anyone made the trip from Farmington, NM to ABQ?

    We have done this trip twice, once west bound to Farmington in a Model S 70D. We had a headwind and temperatures in the 50s. We did have to reduce our speed to 55. The second time was East bound in a Model X. Weather was warmer and no head wind. Plenty of charge left when we got to ABQ.

    We have a 2017 X, vin 65XXX. Our driver's door had a similar problem. From the outside, when pushed on the door, the actuator would make a sound and sometimes the door would almost open. If I could catch an edge it would. As luck would have it, I happened to be at a SC and a Tesla Ranger...

    Questions for 5-Seater Owners

    Problem with Sentry Mode?

    Have you looked at the thread “Random car alarms” on the general model X catagory? Also are you frequently checking your car’s status using your iPhone? That wakes the car up and may account for the behavior.

    Model X Cream Interior

    I kept the aftermarket tan mats that I had for our model S and put them in our X. They do lighten up the interior and make it easier to find dropped items. Easy to take out and clean too. Had to do a little trimming but basic fit is fine.
