2016 Tesla Model X: Doors Get a Firmware Update
by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on September 12, 2016
Somewhat confusingly, this update had the same name as the last one (v7.1), and it, too, had to do with the Falcon Wing doors.
After the update, the screen reported that the "Falcon Wing Door closing behavior has been improved" in that each door "will stop and open back up slightly if it encounters an obstacle while closing."
That's a good thing. Previously, I suppose, the door would just stop if it hit an obstacle, potentially trapping whatever it was. Ouch. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for an update that fixes the headrests.
