    Anyone had issues with a later build X (mine is June 2017) and a front door issue? I saw some threads from very early builds but nothing more recently...

    My driver's side front door won't open from the outside as of yesterday afternoon, and from inside have to manually pull the lever fully to get it to pop open. I can hear the motor running as if its trying to open, but no dice.

    Probably latch failure. I had a June 2017 loaner with the latch failing.

    Yeah, planning on taking it in next week when we get back in town. The door has been working intermittently, but seems like the latch is the issue.

    I had a latch failure on the driver side door of a 2016 Model X.

    Old thread but wanted to report this just happened to me last night (Sept '17 Model X100D). Awaiting an appointment to get it repaired.

    I had similar issue. Service Center was able to make it work again.
