Aside:

Glad to hear of your progress.

Perhaps you should also reflect on your great fortune that more serious injuries to your self, your passenger(s) or others did not result from losing control of your vehicle, as close to three tons traveling at ~70 mph is certainly capable of doing much greater harm than it did.

Deer are a constant hazard, but the over-sized windshield of an X obviously presents a very large soft target for a deer or any other large object to enter the cabin and cause serious occupant injuries, either directly, or from subsequent collision after loss of control of the vehicle, after the driver is disabled.

Presumably, that X was not operating on Autopilot when it struck the deer?

Car shuts down with 14 km range left. I'm stranded 7 km away from the supercharger...

A guy could tow me. But car would not go in tow mode. Waiting for flatbed now...

Unbalanced cells. Normal speed at 85 % is 30-35 kW. This is why my car stopped at 14 km left yesterday...

Only a few days after I got Optimus Prime back, I went on a 1200 km road trip. And unfortunately, the car broke down again...

Possibly related to other "90 kWh" pack problem reports?

10 Least Reliable Cars

Consumer Reports' annual survey exposes the models with the greatest risks of problems


...Our survey takes a deep dive into the numerous things that can go wrong with a vehicle. We study 17 trouble areas, from nuisances—such as squeaky brakes and broken interior trim—to major bummers, such as out-of-warranty transmission repairs or trouble with four-wheel-drive systems. We weight the severity of each type of problem to create a Predicted Reliability Score for each vehicle.

Based on that analysis, these models are the least reliable. They are presented in rank order, counting down to the least reliable model, the Tesla Model X...
