I want peoples opinion on the falcon wing doors on the model X
Hi Cool cat,
Welcome to TMC!!!
I am an X rookie. I have only had mine since March 2018.
Please tell us more about yourself.
Do you own an X? Or a Tesla of any flavor?
Do you have a reservation?
I don’t have a Tesla but I am fascinated by them so I came here to post my ideas and thoughts
I would suggest using the search tool. There are litterally thousands of reviews here, including the FWD. But TBH, there is no choice. If you want an X, you are getting FWD.
@DCGOO i would have to agree but I always thought the model x was all wheel drive
You don't have a Model X yet you want to post about your ideas and thoughts?.
I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts, so please post them.
I was thinking Tesla should add a virtual Elon Musk as a assistant
In the Tesla world, FWD = falcon wing doors.
Tesla doesn't make any front wheel drive cars.
Oh ok sorry I did not know that
But to answer your question, I think the Falcon Wing Doors are pretty cool. They make access to the 3rd row much easier than in any other SUV. They also make loading infants and small children very easy on one's back. The doors look cool. Get use to people staring at your car whenever you open or close the doors. They take surprising little space on the side to open, just 18" needed between your X and the next car. The doors do take a little getting use to in terms of learning where to stand and where not to stand to avoid getting hit in the head. And the sensors can't detect all possible obstructions so you definitely have to pay attention, but I've had mine for 2.5 years without any door related accidents.
Falcon Wing Doors are a bit complicated, but sure make getting in and out easy.
They are great conversation starters. If you open your FWDs near a group of people the attention immediatedly goes to the doors.
I’m getting my X in a couple of month hopefully. For now, what I can say is that I love the FWD when using them on all the X I have tested. On the other side, I’m terrified of no longer being able to mount something on my roof. Those roof racks are pretty convenient for camping. Need to find an alternative to them
Just use the tow hitch for all those roof rack items ... bike racks/storage etc
Yes. Already have a Yakima fullswing
FullSwing | Bike Hitch Rack | Yakima Racks
But I’m now looking at the best alternative for tow hitch storage. Ideally one that I can attach the bike rack to after.
