No, you just don't get it. That's because you don't live here, so you don't know anything. Austin doesn't fall into the issue of many places in the US do about keep up, falling bridges, highways and infrastructure that needs to be repaired. Austin just does not have the highway infrastructure to begin with. It's a college town that was never designed for this kind of rapid population expansion/explosion. I'm done talking to idjuts on this today.

Time will be the ultimate crucible to weigh its impact on the world. Will be be like Lancia, great but forgotten, or will it be like Porsche and stay relevant for 50 years. I honestly do not know. But I am willing to see how it plays out. It is nearly impossible to predict with todays social and economic climate what will be happening in 5 years much less 20.

Buy what you want, and don't be a dick to anybody... simple life.
Does this mean you're finally taking your meds again, Scrappy?


.. or did you finally drive a Tesla?

Tesla is delivering lots of Model Ys it seems that someone got a 24,000 VIN . It seems that they are addressing the issues they had on the first cars. Here are a few post from 10 minutes ago. There use one post of a car that had some small transport damage and delivery center tried to deliver the car like that .

Anyway these people are spending 2-1 hour looking for issues on one of the most simplest designed cars ever . I wonder what is the tack time in the quality station at most manufacturers?

Dodge the top brand and the technology is too complicated...

On way that the survey could be flawed is that the Tesla's customer base its super picky. Some customers are taking 4 pages check lists, calipers and spending 2-1 hours going over the car. I have been in many other car forums and I never seen something like this. People complaining that one gap is different than the other by 2mm WTF. Do people have any of what is the tolerance of casted, stamped, bended or molded parts and then the stack of all those components?

Agreed, that much time is jus ridiculous. Although, I would have to lay blame on Tesla for earning a reputation for lousy QC. Now everyone is hyper sensitive about not getting a lemon, the the crazy inspections.

If it sounds crazy it most likely is.

When it comes to Tesla, the sounds on all sides is full on crazy.

its the result of a massive industry going through a disruption where Tesla is seen as the primary catalyst.

What you see and smell is panic.

Bingo. I did a quick look over of my car in May 2019, there was nothing obviously wrong (much better built than my 2015 Mustang). I was satisfied with the car. But If they don't want people complaining about build quality they should stop pushing ****ty cars out the door. I was hoping the Model Y would be a fresh start, but it's the same **** from them again.

Panel gap tolerances are one thing, straight up loose interior parts is a big deal.

This people are crazy spending hours looking over a car. The last car she rejected had some really minor issues, swirls and light scratches that you could remove easily. And some slight gap differences on the window trim.

Great day for Tesla stock holders today with the stock reaching an AH of $1200. I really wished that some of you had joined investing in Tesla instead of listening to lunatics like Enick; we could had made life changing money together. It seems that with the upcoming S&P 500 inclusion Tesla could reach $2000 by the end of year according to some financial models and the current stock float. Elon tweeted that he will talk with board IIRC about doing a stock split. That would be awesome at least for me because I cannot get many shares at the current price and it would make it easier to play the options game.

^^ that review was painful to watch. I donít remember that reviewer ever going into such explanations over what g forces are and how they test acceleration runs.....seems like they felt the need to explain all this to the Tesla crowd. Maybe they assume the average Tesla buyer knows nothing about cars
