Consumer Reports: Tesla’s Model X Is ‘Fast and Flawed’

An anonymous reader quotes a report from MarketWatch: Tesla Motors Inc. was dealt a blow earlier this week as Consumer Reports magazine called the Model X, its much-awaited and much-feted SUV, a “flawed” vehicle. Beyond a “brag-worthy magic, the all-wheel drive Model X 90D largely disappoints,” the magazine said, citing rear doors prone to pausing and stopping, second-row seats that can’t be folded, and limiting cargo capacity. Even its panoramic, helicopter-like windshield won cranky-sounding disapproval from Consumer Reports: It’s not tinted enough to offset the brightness of a sunny day, it said. Overall “the ride is too firm and choppy for a $110,000 car,” Consumer Reports said. Earlier this year, Consumer Reports released its 2016 Car Reliability Survey and found that, while the Tesla Model S has become more reliable, the Tesla Model X has proved to be unreliable overall.
