Hi, everyone here has kindly shared all the relevant points above.Background: I currently have a 2022 Model S as a daily driver and it's been mostly great for commuting to and from work (15 miles each way in Los Angeles traffic). Outside work, I've been noticing we've been using my wife's 7-seater Model Y more for hiking, grocery runs, and going out to eat. We're a family of 5.5 (3 adults, 2 toddlers who need booster seats, and a dog), so it makes sense to use her car since cramming everyone into the Model S would be tight for those in the back. Aside from getting everyone of back easier, the Model Y doesn't have vents in the back, so sometimes my kids complains that it's too hot to sit in the third row. So now I'm considering replacing my Model S with a Model X since it offers a more space and comfort than the Model Y and Model S. My wife doesn't want to replace her car since she likes the size and she's been quite attached to it.
I'm curious if there are those who have Model X as a daily driver and have some questions:
I greatly appreciate any feedback!
- Does having a Model X seem too big as a daily driver?
- Any issues driving along city streets and bottoming-out?
- Any issues in parking garages?
- Any other issues I should consider?
We initially placed an order for Model Y Performance then Model X Plaid few weeks later (after test driving Model X, we fell in love in it) and to our surprise the X came first.
My wife loves the Falcon Wing Doors since it’s so much easier to enter/exit with our young toddler, especially when it rains.
I have never been a fan of SUV but Model X is exceptionally different in many ways. Comparatively with Model S, you will notice a big interior space difference and sitting on a higher driving position for Model X.
It does not feel very big on the road as daily driver. It does feel “bigger” in the parking garage though in terms of width when I compare it to the Model S.
We chose 6 seater version because of practicality for access to the 3rd row (as needed) and also for the sleeker look of the captain/mono spot seats.
I personally think you (and your family) will enjoy it.
