Hi Model X folks!
I'm a Model 3 owner and a friend of mine has a Model X on order, but he has a few concerns.
The first one was the fire that happened recently where the police officer didn't break the window. I think he understands that there's a risk with all cars, and that vehicle was in a high speed collision. Nobody seems to understand why the police didn't break the window. I understand the emotional reaction to the situation, and so does he.
The real concern at this point is quality control for the Model X. I had the initial punch list of items for my Model 3 when I got it a year ago. Tesla handled it very well. I then had a blemish I found about 6 m months after delivery that Tesla handled extremely well with Mobile service.
His concern in the quality department is what he's been reading online. I think we all know that the satisfied folks, don't write posts complaining. For the folks that had deliveries of the project Raven Model X, what have your experiences been like?
The nagging issue he has is regarding delivery timeline. They're quoting him a day in December, and saying they can't be flexible beyond like 24-48 hours or the have to release the car and re-order. My perspective is two fold. 1) I haven't seen certainty in delivery dates more than two weeks out. They seem to be estimates from what I've read, and my own experience a year ago. 2) they'll change their tune as soon as the car shows up on the lot and they're looking to get it delivered.
Thoughts? General quality issues of the Project Raven Model X? Delivery date flexibility?
Thanks in advance. He'd have posted, but can't with the verified owner rules. I've expressed that yes, there are problems, but almost everyone I've talked with loves the vehicles.
