I can't imagine what a nightmare those FW doors are going to be like after the warranty expires.
Is it true that the FWD's used to have a sensor on the inside of the door that stopped it from hitting people standing underneath the door - but an OTA 'update' purposefully killed its operation, because it was causing too much warranty work? I'd just heard this a week or so ago, and didn't know about the veracity of that statement.
How does someone stand underneath the door?
Yes, they either disabled or turned down the sensitivity of some of the sensors. Someone here will remember exactly what they did but it improved the reliability of the doors closing all the way.
There wasn't ever an ultrasonic sensor under the door. They were always resistance sensors, like on the liftgate. They dialed back the sensitivity on those sensors because the doors would falsely stop without any obstruction. I know they didn't disable them because I have stopped the doors multiple times with my hand. It takes a little force, but nothing scary.
Then what's this? Fast forward to 2:08
That's pointed to outside the car to detect cars or other obstacles nearby.
My mistake, I misread Ohmmans post, I thought he was referring to "under the door" literally under the sheet metal but understand now it was a sensor under the door to stop it from smacking people.
I think they modified the pinch sensors as well because the new sensors don't seem to be as sensitive as the early MX.
Does that mean they'll pinch even harder?
If so - what would happen on the overhead part of the door - where pinch leverage would necessarily be exponentially greater?
It will take your entire hand.
I believe there was a video of someone chopping cucumbers with it early on.
Here is a brand new problem with my window. Mind you, the window develops this problem every month or so, Tesla "fixes" it, then it comes back and the cycle starts anew. The disgusting sealant sticking to the window is a new bonus.
Today I filed my paper claim with the National Center for Dispute Settlement. I will keep anyone interested informed on the process that follows.
Please, do. I'm curious to see where this goes ...
Good luck! Keep us posted. I love Tesla but there should be NO argument that you should have a perfect vehicle and one that is free of any/all defects. No excuse for any NEW car not to be perfect let alone a $100,000+ one.
Here is a video of the water intrusion into my Model X:
And just for good measure, here is a picture of my Tesla Model X randomly reporting low brake fluid. Tesla replaced the sensor, I got the vehicle home, and the screen reported low brake fluid again.
So are you going to get another X or are you done with Tesla?....I am pretty confident that this will be resolved. Sure would hate for you to go back to gas.
I think without question you DEFINITELY got a lemon.
