Tesla Motors apparently took back one of its Model X SUVs after its owner filed a lawsuit about numerous problems with the vehicle.
Fortune reports that the electric vehicle maker quietly settled the case with tech entrepreneur Barrett Lyon.

Lyon alleged that the Model X’s gull-wing doors operated unpredictably and that some autonomous features, including its “auto-pilot” and self-parking capabilities, didn’t work properly.
His lawsuit further suggested that the vehicle, Tesla’s debut SUV, was “rushed” into production and that a Tesla service center gave him the “runaround” when he raised those issues.
Lyon and Tesla said that the automaker took the car back; no other details of the settlement were disclosed.
“As a principle, we are always willing to buy back a car in the rare event that a customer isn’t completely happy,” the company wrote in an email to Fortune.
Fortune noted that other Model X owners also received refunds. Lyons, meanwhile, reportedly continues to own two other Teslas.
