Yes, we do need to give Elon credit for being a visionary who forced the legacy automakers to the electric car game. I'm glad you love your Model X.

If we didn't have to wait 6 months, we likely would be driving a Model X now as we actually put the nonrefundable $100 deposit down after our test drive. It didn't quite feel right, but the extensive charging network was the biggest selling point.

Two months later, we started having weird noise issues on the Lexus that the mechanic said could cost over $1,000 just to troubleshoot (it wasn't an obvious issue). That's why we started looking into Model X alternatives. I thought I'd share my experience here because I had assumed it was Model X or bust but we are very happy with our e-tron.
