I took delivery of my Raven Refresh Performance, Ludicrous Mode Model X less than 3 weeks ago, 2 weeks later than the estimate for delivery when I ordered the car. Quality control was much worse than expected. For reference I've owned a Roadster 2.5 and Model S P85DL, so I'm not new to Tesla. Here's the list of things wrong. At delivery they discovered a problem with the steering column and had to re-calibrate it (2.5 hour delay); the steering wheel is about 5 degrees counter-clockwise from where it should be. The first time I did a hard acceleration (8 miles on the odometer) I noticed a vibration in the front of the car, but chalked it up to an unfamiliar road. I later discovered it always happens with as low as 90KW acceleration. I'm now scheduled to have the front axles replaced. Six days after I had the car and a 1000 miles from home, the air conditioning quit. The repair technician said it was incorrectly set at the factory. That cost me half of my family visit trip. The falcon-wing doors often do not shut on the first try; it reports there's an obstruction, when there is none. It is yet to complete the Xmas Easter Egg dance. The passenger side windshield wiper only wipes 1/3 to now 1/2 of the area in from of the cameras on the rear view mirror assembly; a loaner Model X (Signature P90D) wipes 2 inches past them. The result is the loud warning to take control when raining (even light rain) or the washers are used. The washer fluid leaves a blue film on the car, most noticable on the window chrome. The right front tire has a slow leak--I'm not sure whether that is Telsa's or my fault. The website said I would get 5000 miles of free supercharging when I ordered the car. Before I reached 1000 miles charges began showing up during supercharging. I certainly like the car and will keep it, but the level of quality control should be much higher after producing the Model S for 7 years and Model X for 4 years.
