Granted, it's an early car, with lots of miles, but that doesn't excuse charging ~$140 k (?) for a POS like this.

Model X P90DL (24) issues after 15 months and 120k km/75k mi

I just realized that for https://www.consumerreports.org/car-rel ... able-cars/, updated Oct 19, 2017, Model X was dead last in reliability.

For the version release Oct 24, 2016 at https://web.archive.org/web/20161025075 ... able-cars/, Model X was in the middle of the pack of the 10 least reliable cars, 5 vehicles were worst w/the Escalade being dead last.

Guess some people like Musk were so completely immersed in the suspended reality of the Movie World that they were convinced Gull Wing Doors were reliable. You can thank a well known Movie Trilogy for the X issues. ;)

I think so and come to grips with that every time I see these pictures and think about what has transpired since then. My eye is in pretty tough shape but I'm thankful I am home, walking around, communicating with family and friends, and doing other normal things ... vs being in a hospital bed ... or worse!

Scott,

I rarely read the Telsa threads, so I had no idea about your accident. So sorry to hear about your injuries and so glad that your son escaped harm. Sending you positive, healing thoughts! Hang in there, brother.

If TSLA wasn't already approaching Terminal Decline:

More fail videos like this would probably be enough to kill it...

Tesla Model X with frost, what fails to operate?

Decline? What decline?
I drove my X down I-5 last night for about 120 miles on AutoPilot. The latest SW update was a significant improvement, handling even the winding Grapevine with ease. It was actually a lot of fun. My X just gets better and better as do all Teslas with these OTA updates.
Plus by this time next week, I expect the new 40-stall Supercharger in Kettleman City to be up and running. This place was put together really fast. Complete with a Tesla lounge area, bathrooms etc. Looked really nice and is in the perfect location for me to do a one-stop SoCal-NorCal drive in my Model 3 LR.

I see no declining nor even reclining by Tesla.
