Ok, where to begin. :)
I thought I'd compare my experience in taking delivery of a Tesla Model X in 2019 vs my Tesla Model S from 2016.
I used to post a lot in these forums when I first got my Model S in 2016 and interacted with a bunch of folks that I'm thrilled to see that they still post sporadically. Life happened, fast forward 3 years and we took delivery of an inventory 2019 MX 100D, Pearl White on White Vegan, 6 seat layout, with the lifetime Supercharger promo and the heavily discounted sticker.
Sad to see that the swag bag that they used to give are gone, but understandably so, since they can't possibly sustain that. I remember the umbrella, the mug, the pen, the pin, the hat and a bunch of other stuff in my swag bag back in 2016.
I think what I found to be the biggest difference was that, it used to be an event to take delivery... now it's basically like any other car buying experience from crappy dealerships. Not sure if it's just the delivery place (Mt. Kisco, NY) but the delivery experience was really poor.
The car had 150 more miles than when I put a deposit on. The car came from PA (about 150 miles from NY). When they scheduled me for delivery, they said they were waiting for the truck to fill up to bring them up to NY. When I took delivery of it, it had 309. Not really that big of a deal, but, I just thought if I put a deposit on a 150 mile vehicle, I will wonder why it now has double. Obviously, they never transported it, but rather driven it.
The worst part was that the MX's white vegan seats were dirty! I had to tell them to clean the seats while I waited longer. It looks like someone with greasy hands were fondling the seats. They managed to get most of it, but it's not necessarily clean. I'll have to get it detailed. I tried asking for detail credit but no luck.
Anyway, I just thought I'd document my experience here. Certainly poor compared to my Model S from 3 years ago. It felt like I was at a sleazy used car dealer.
Hope everyone is well... does lilbean and silverp85 still post here?
