An owner of three Tesla vehicles filed a lawsuit against the electric automaker in May, stating his Model X’s doors malfunction and the autopilot feature was dangerous in the rain.
Barrett Lyon now owns only a Model S and an original Roadster after Tesla quietly agreed to take his Model X back and settle the lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges Tesla “rushed” the Model X into production before it was ready for market. Lyon is demanding the company issue a refund under California’s “Lemon Laws.”
Other customers are also clamoring for refunds.
Lyon’s lawsuit claimed the car’s doors opened and closed at random, often-times hitting his wife and damaging other cars — worse still, the lawsuit claimed, the Model X’s autopilot feature was particularly dangerous in the rain.
