    Rear Drive Unit Failure DI_w126 Alert

    Rear Drive Unit Failure DI_w126 Alert

    In March '22 they agreed to do the half shaft upgrade, found the Front drive unit was cracked and replaced it (under warranty). Now in Jan '23, I am hearing the similar rolling/knocking sound I heard before the last Rear Drive Unit Failure in December '21. I have a service appointment...

    Rear Drive Unit Failure DI_w126 Alert

    Got my X back with a new rear drive unit. They just said it was a failure of "communication between the RDU and the HV battery". Don't know exactly what that means, but the new drive unit is working well....Unfortunately, they did not look at the clicking noise I'm hearing during acceleration...

    Can someone tell me if the clicking sound I recorded during acceleration in the result of the issue addressed in the service bulletin or something else??? (started at around 45k miles and seems to be getting progressively worse - now at 65k miles. I just had my rear drive unit replaced when I...

    Rear Drive Unit Failure DI_w126 Alert

    I am now thinking of a trade in option when my extended warranty is close to expiring. I was really hoping that a fully autonomous (no steering wheel) capable car would be available before trade in but that is looking like wishful thinking....

    I have a signature 2016 X (65k miles) and a couple weeks ago, I got a warning "car may not restart/service required" and "max acceleration and speed reduced". I called Tesla service and they said it was likely a battery issue, but after a week of diagnostics, they said I need to have my rear...

    Deteriorating falcon wing door moon roof gasket on early model X’s

    I luv Tesla BUT…. With their poor design choice of integrating a substandard gasket material (which started to disintegrate after 3 years) to a very expensive falcon wing door moonroof, and their analysis that this pieces is merely cosmetic (and not covered under warranty), I decided to strip it...

    Tesla Quality - Key Fob Indestructible???

    Interesting Error Warning - Car may not Restart

    First time I've seen this error....Driving home from work, got the error and called the SC. They said it was likely nothing but to bring it in when I could so they could investigate. Since I was only 4 blocks away, I swung by and picked up a loaner. I'm glad I did. When they went to start...

    Telsa Front Floor Mats Installed

    I think it really depends on where you position the mat (where the velcro is placed). If you have it too far from the side molding (even by 1/4 inch) it can pop out...Try repositioning a bit Notice the picture above how CMdrThor's positioning does not have the sides under the molding

    Ludicrous Mode delta energy use?

    Is there any inherent energy use increase just by having the vehicle is in Ludicorous mode? ie ...if you accelerate at the same rate or drive at the same speed with or without Ludicrouse mode enabled will there be any difference in energy use? Or is the extra energy use only associated with...

    P100D vs 100D - $37K?

    With this in mind...I'll certainly only order a M3100_ when my reservation hits... I'll have one quick car and one inexpexpensive car.... After a year of driving it, I still can't get over the acceleration of the P90D off the line and passing in traffic... The P100D must be awesome...

    V8 and autopilot

    I see pros and cons... Sometimes a little more unstable on straight roads - moving slightly more left and right but it seems to handle curves much better...it feels almost as if the car can anticipate the upcoming curve better its hard to put into words, but it seems there is much less oversteer...
