Hey guys!

I have had the same issue twice and I think it’s worth sharing:

Twice after using a standard brush car wash, my Tesla Model X’s fan broke down. It was immediately after the car wash, noticeable as soon as you turn the air on in the car and it blows out hot.

The first time I thought it was a fluke, but now I think there’s a serious defect in the design of the vehicle where if you get a normal car wash, interior components can get damaged. Both times it happened Tesla had to replace the cooling fan.

If anyone knows any good TOUCHLESS car washes in Phoenix, AZ, let me know. Thanks!
 
I go once a week on the weekends. The first time it happened was a month ago. The second time was this past weekend. I’ve gone through two cooling fans in about a month. Someone did tell me it could be the fan sucking in water while washing but that didn’t really make sense either because the car is supposed to be able to handle rain, right?
