    My X is in the shop for repair after someone backed into me in a parking lot in July (thanks to Tesla's SC in Raleigh for confirming for the other lady's insurance company that my car was, indeed, parked at the time!). I picked up an Expedition yesterday, and I feel like I need to learn to drive again! The size of the car isn't so much the problem; I had an extended Navigator before the X. The problem is that this car does not slow down when I take my foot off of the accelerator. I've been leaving extra space between me and the car in front. I keep looking for the gear shifter on the steering column instead of on the console. I'm sure I look funny swiping my hand in the air trying to grab what isn't there. I'm so spoiled now by all of the features of my car. I am so thankful that I'll be getting it back soon!!!

    Ditto. I was fortunate enough to be given an X loaner when my vehicle was getting its 25K receive recently, but for the previous service visit I was given an expensive German ICE sedan as a loaner. I appreciated the thought, but could not wait to be back in a Tesla.

    Hopefully you will get the car back soon.

    I don't dislike ICE I just got used to EV. As much as I like EV, I'd still love to get my hand on an ICE sports car. Eyeing on the Porsche 911 GT3. There's just something special with the engine / exhaust noise / changing gear manually.

    I did get my car back very quickly - so thankful! I love to drive a manual transmission; however, those are harder and harder to find here in the states.
