In hindsight, even Tesla CEO Elon Musk thinks the Model X was a mistake. When the Model X was launched in 2015, he told Business Insider, “I’m not sure anyone should have made this car. We probably should have just [modified the Model S]. There are so many more features and difficult-to-build parts on [the Model X] than it is necessary for us to sell the cars.”
Those features included the problematic front gullwing and rear “falcon-wing” doors, a bioweapon air-filtration system, and 3.2 second 0-60 time.
In the years since its release, the Model X has been the subject of 24 NHTSA safety recalls, including ones for faulty seat belts, airbags, collision avoidance, and autonomous driving systems.
The massive windshield is also prone to cracking, and defective front stabilizer bar bushings have led many Model X owners to complain about suspension noise.
The recalls and notable issues have driven down the Model X’s value in the used car marketplace. While the P90D version originally carried a sticker price of well over $100,000, at least one used example can be found for about half that today. But considering all the potential problems that a used Model X might come with, savvy buyers might want to stay away from the Model X’s siren song.
