I have a Tesla Model X 90D 2016 model. It has about 97.000 kilometers on it.
* = means that the issue has been fixed multiple times.
(*) = means the issue is not resolvable.

One reason for a lot of issues repeating themselves are that are usually because they do not believe me and either do nothing or simply do to little. Example is the whisteling sound from the side mirrors (they did nothing) and the Upper Control arms (they did a bad fix).

Keep this in mind:

Tesla expect you to prove everything and will not accept your word for it. Make sure you take videos and images of your issues. On some occations even this will not be enough. Then you simply go to “Forbrukerrådet” and make a complaint. Tesla will always try to wear you out…
