Well, maybe “realistic” isn’t the word for “impossible.” But how many people read manuals anyway, especially when they are new cars? If there was ever a test regarding something that is as important to every driver as the operation of his car’s doors, it would have to be about how easy it is to get into and out of a falcon door with a Model X. This is a big one. Not just meant for the average Model X owner, but nobody reads manuals anyway, right?)
What Your Customers Really Think About Your Falcon Door?
From reading various online articles on the subject (including mine at the very beginning of this article), it appears that all Falcon door closers, including the Magna Rx and Sullair IntelliSense are tested for vibration during launch and operation, not just the newer models. Realist also seemed to take on Page 24 of the manual as proof of the worst case scenario: that the newer Model X doors are not designed in such a fashion that if the power did go out, the rear passengers would still be able to get into the vehicle. What does this mean to the consumer? It means that you might as well buy a new Model X and not bother with the door closed.
If you are shopping for new door closer hardware, stop using the internet as your primary research tool. Manufacturers do not need customers to be concerned about sturdiness of their products. In fact, they need you to keep them happy, so they will keep making more of these wonderful products. Instead, spend some time talking to a salesperson from a reliable auto door company, such as Magna-Ride, to find out exactly what the best door closers for your vehicle are, so you will know why you should only buy them from that company.
