    Quoted from Nilroc:

    Sorry guys and Gals your the Minority! Model 3 will be the NUMBER 5 top selling vehicle in the US. Majority of people love the car! Don't take my word for it read the FACTS!

    LOL. What do you have to say about these facts?

    Quoted from rubberducks:

    There seem to be fewer illusions of those running them commercially however. In Amsterdam there are quite a lot of the Model S being used as taxis / airport transfer cars, since the tax regime and price of fuel vs electricity make electric cars a decent proposition economically, and demand initially exceeded supply for Teslas (so they could sell them after use for a good price).
    I've ridden in 5 so far. 1 guy was lukewarm. 2 hated it and were spitting venom when asked; 1 particularly who'd had the heater fail twice in this year's cold snap. 2 thought it was ok to drive but too unreliable. All said they'd had constant niggles and reliability issues, including several full breakdowns. All said they wanted to change. 4 said they'd go to a more reliable, cheaper fully electric European or Japanese / Korean brand as soon as there were choices available. 1 said he'd go back to a Prius (what he had before).
    All but one of them rattled badly, and had drafts from the windows even when closed. The upholstery and plastics looked worn even on the 2 that had done below 40,000KM.
    I see quite a few private ones around, too, but don't know anyone with one. Do know a few people with Mitsubishi / Hyundai / BMW electric cars though.

    Quoted from lancestorm:

    C'mon Ford, buy out Tesla.

    Like when BofA bought Countrywide? Bad idea.

    Quoted from Brijam:

    No, after around 70,000 miles it's better to have a new EV than to keep an old gas burner:

    If you want to change my mind

    LOL. That's a good one. I don't think Einstein could change your mind.

    As if we don't have enough distracted drivers already with cell phones and texting.

    Replacing a car's gauge cluster and physical controls in favor an over-complicated Ipad that takes your eyes completely off the road might be the dumbest idea I've ever seen. It reminds me of a woman I saw one time driving on the freeway while playing candy crush on her Ipad.

    Dying in a lithium fire from a head-on collision is not cool, nor green.

    Bad day for TSLA. Seems like their financial trouble is very real.
