    It is insane how a "premium" car has weird and irritating shit like rattles and random noises, it would be disappointing for me if I encountered that on a vehicle with such a price. I have a 2008 BMW and its super quiet and I haven't had any irregular or eerie problems ever since I acquired it years ago!!!

    A woman parked her model S next to the kerb to take a phonecall as I was walking nearby. I was roughly 10 metres away and I could hear both her and her caller loudly as if she wasn't in a car at all. There's obviously nothing to block sound leaking from these cars.

    Its bc they dont use a unibody chasis and instead bolt together different areas of the car. Unwise.

    The service centre may be friendly and professional, but it's interesting that they repeatedly omit your concerns about rattles on the service order. Hopefully, they tighten up on their "listening" and "reporting".

    Gur, as a car guy, my tesla going under was just spoken by The CEO using his own words. The tax credits are ending this year. There is a huge payment I hear due in March? These cars are in the service center way more than any new car? If Tesla lasts the first half of 2019, I would be very surprised. Good luck on getting spare parts on ebay, because there is not very many. Good luck to you and your car. RIck

      ...a car that doesn't need 10 service visits in under 2 years and 20,000 miles.
      A $20,000 car should be able to meet this expectation.
      This car was $83,000 btw.

      +Gur814 i was very happy with two Infinities and a Lexus last 10 years or so with absolutely no quality issues. All i had to replace was wearables. They got me set expectations high. Need more research on Tesla. Thanks for your video. Definitely helped.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  18 days ago

      Have you test driven? I know a lot of happy owners. Most people do end up having a few issues though. As long as you are aware that there might be some problems and are ok with that then it should be a solid purchase. It's the best car I've ever owned when ignoring the issues. But it's a gamble if you'll have problems or not.
      My experience does seem to be at least a somewhat abnormal though. I've had more issues than nearly all other owners that I know.

    As a car guy and perfectionist- Car design is the hardest thing in the world. Thousands of parts have to interact with each other without breaking. This car must work damn near the same in antartica as well as the sub sahara extremes, without breaking. Toyota or any major brand spends millions in research on every part they make. Tesla has not done this. To be fair it is too new. To be fair also, the consumer should not pay a premium price to test drive a car to help the company fix its flaws. Once a said car company gets an unreliable rating for fit and finish, its is doomed.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  Month ago

      🤷 Your guess is as good as mine. I appreciate you coming back. I was curious what kept pulling you back in.
      Sales are booming and I think that could ultimately be their undoing. If they are still building cars this poorly they're going to be in a lot of trouble once 100x the amount of cars are on the road needing constant service.

    • DIOSpeedDemon
      DIOSpeedDemon Month ago

      I have come back because the Headlines "claim" Tesla is booming and sales are booming- what about Consumer reports saying the Reliability of these cars is right near the bottom of the list? Why is this, I ask myself? I ask myself also, Where are all the components for these cars actually made, what country? When asked the reps say the door handles and radio buttoms and trunk latch are made in Germany. Where is the other stuff made like the body panels, frame sub-structures, wheels, drive units , uni-body parts, and everything else? Are they are made in China or where exactly? How come these cars insurance premiums are twice that of a similar equipped car? These are the questions that will make or break an auto in the long run. Thanks RCK

    I would have reported everything to head office of tesla car manufacturing.
    And would have sent the car back to them, skip the service outlets.
    Give the whole list of problems to them.
    Either fix them properly and if not give me another complete vehicle.
    Because for a top of the range vehicle especially if it is the tesla s p100 model.
    Worth about 260,000 AUS dollars, we'll you would want something for your money.
    Especially with no problems, even though that they are minor issues.
    And it's not that you are whinging about it, but you expect value for your money spent.

    • Max Brazel
      Max Brazel Month ago +1

      Gur814 so sorry for the inconvienace that it had caused you.
      It's just a shame that they only give you a warranty and not a guarantee of either,
      Another replacement vehicle or your money back.
      I mean what right have these people from tesla got the right to discredit you.
      And there would have been no way that you would have got back the money on what that you had paid for it.
      But it's just like anything, as the years progress, so does the technology with progress.
      And most probably they would have found other manufacturers to produce these parts inline with tesla's recommendations.
      But don't forget you had most probably got one of those vehicles that every, 1000 cars that were made from tesla.
      You most probably had received a lemon. But this can happen within any given car manufacturer.
      But next time you purchase a new vehicle of any make or model, make sure that you don't want a vehicle that was either made on a Friday or a Monday.
      For a simple fact that of a Friday the workers are looking to get home for the weekend, and if your car was the last one coming off the production line and if it is close to knocking off time, well then they will rush to get it finished.
      So therefore you could possibly end up getting a lemon from this.
      And on a Monday for the workers just coming back from there weekend break, well they could possibly get Monday itis, so in other words.
      They won't feel like coming back to work on the Monday, and so the workers could be possibly still getting over there weekend off, and there brains won't be fully functional on the Monday going back to work, and some things could go a miss.
      As to me this is on how that lemons are born, so when you do get another new vehicle make sure that it is either built from a Tuesday through till a Thursday, because the workers are much more in a right positive frame of mind.
      But it's just some advice for you too think about, as there is nothing worse than getting a lemon from any given car manufacturer.
      But this is my recommendations, best of luck to yourself and your family, and have a great Christmas and a new year to all of your loved ones.🙏😇🙏👍👌👍, and have a great and wonderful day.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  Month ago

      You're not wrong, but they would be under no legal obligation to do any of that. They have to attempt to fix the problems. Since their service teams were working on it they were fulfilling the warranty.
      I was in contact with their corporate office. That helped to improve my level of service but sadly wasn't enough. I ended up selling the car back to them because it became too annoying to deal with.

    • Max Brazel
      Max Brazel Month ago

      And then if that they could not correct the problems, just give me another complete vehicle, with the same specifications on that I had paid for without the issue that I had been having, simple.

      Cool, but this car doesn't have that many miles on it and it has more issues than all of my previous cars combined. Of course a car is going to have rattles at 100,000 miles. That's not the point. This car rattles and has dozens of other issues before I even hit 10,000 miles.

    I think this generation should not be buying $50k plus cars (which is in no way an expensive car, sorry but it isn't) . They obviously have never owned a European car. These are just comical. Rattles? I mean its nothing like better than a Chevy Cruze. These kids I'm sure are going from Cruzes, Civics, Chevy Sparks and the like. Ive had brand new BMWs throughout the 2000s and rattles were common, and you get used to them and they try to fix and it doesn't always happen. This fan squeak, I didn't hear a thing. Honestly what do you expect with a car so cheap when all you are paying for is the tech and batteries. Perhaps this "squeak" is normal but as you don't actually have a running engine, so no engine noise to mask any other sounds. Just a generation of whingers. The wonderful Millennials. Junk car made in the US. Sorry but US built cars don't compare to Japanese or European built cars. Full stop. Buy a proper car next time.

      +Gur814 spoken like a true lefty. Throwing around the widely overused white "Privileged" BS. I don't find $50k USD plus vehicles expensive, seeing as the "average" new car price is ~$36k USD, according to KBB in 2018. So not sure how that equates to any type of "Privileged" life. Again leftist Liberal propaganda BS. None the less still junk cars regardless of price. Even the Model 3 is, and below the US average car price. Also probably too young to remember the GM EV1; that's when this tech was ground breaking. Not now when most of the electricity used to charge these toys come from burning of fossil fuels, not to mention disposal of the batteries at the end of their useful lifetime. People buy these to try and make themselves out to be smarter and better than everyone else, yet complain every single mile of driving. The disgusting reality of this generation. Sad. Very sad. And BTW was not coined by your generation, it was coined by mine, the one right before the ones who are so easily brainwashed into spending more than 15% of their take home salary on something they know is a piece of junk, but yet still buy into the hype and bitch about it every single day. Experts are right, IQs have been dropping steadily over the past few decades (and you can "diagnose" problems all on your own, lol). And an FYI, the self entitled, endlessly offended generation is yours, not mine. Ironic how a statement about the cost of a car makes one live a privileged life. Again the wonderful self entitled assumptions (and I'm the one who jumps to conclusions) of silly young men and women, or should I be PC and say, young people. (Or is that not correct in your new found lingo, perhaps "people" is also offensive). Also, its Millennial, just to be correct. 👍🏻 And any "normal" person sells a car that is so unreliable and also might want to check where the car can also be serviced. Talk about entitled, you bought the car and knew ahead of time you would have to travel a fair distance for any servicing. Obviously not bright enough to "diagnose" this problem ahead of time. "Ain't" that something.

      "$50k plus cars (which is in no way an expensive car..."

      "This fan squeak, I didn't hear a thing"
      As you get older, you tend to lose parts of your hearing. Maybe you just can't hear the frequency.

      "Perhaps this "squeak" is normal but as you don't actually have a running engine"
      Wrong, but I guess only Millennials are capable of actually diagnosing problems instead of jumping to conclusions with no basis in reality. The squeaks were caused by bad fan bearings, by the way. I would have typed "btw", but I'm not sure someone from your generation would understand that "Millenial speak".

      Just so we're clear, at what point are people allowed to point out flaws with Tesla? I know we can't speak about their shortcoming right now because they're too new and their feelings might get hurt. You seem to have such authority on this, I need to know.
      Christ, man, I'm not talking about something complicated here. Tesla needs to increase investment in quality control. This isn't that hard. But again, you've severely missed the point. But what can I expect from someone who hasn't watched the whole video or even bothered with the follow-up which touches on many of these topics.
      Hey, wait a minute. You're not allowed to criticize me! I'm still new to TVclip and am learning. You can't say anything negative about me or my videos because I'm so new. You have to forgive everything and only leave me positive comments so I feel good about myself and want to continue.

    • Gary Shepard
      Gary Shepard Month ago

      Gur814 Nope, again, I’m not missing the point. You should have bought a Subaru Outback (as if it would have no problems).you know, a vehicle with a track record. You make an absurd assumption, suggesting that Tesla should have hired experienced people. How do you know that they didn’t?. You don’t seem to comprehend that all new companies experiences challenges. You can apply your same “pretzel logic” to to idea that Elon should have hired veterans from NASA to spearhead his SPACEX operation. Then we would have his reusable Big Falcon Rockets suffering the same fate as the the Apollo 1, the Challenger and the Columbia. In the end, your complaints are no different than any of us have with our automobiles. You just chose to make a number of TVclip videos out of yours. What do you hope to gain? Social media...

    • Gur814
      Gur814  Month ago

      "which can be attributed to a young company"
      This is a really silly justification for bad quality. Tesla is capable of hiring industry veterans and investing in quality control. They're too concerned with getting cars out as fast as they can that they skip fundamental quality checks. They've shipped cars in abysmal states. These aren't "new company" problems. They're major lacks of oversight and care that people should demand on cars that cost more than most houses where I live.
      "is never to buy a model during its first year of release. It would seem this wisdom has been lost on you."
      You don't even know what car we're talking about, do you? The Model S has been in production since 2012 and was rated pretty favorably by Consumer Reports when I purchased mine. That rating has since dropped since Tesla can't seem to build a high quality car 6 years after release.

      "you did not show in a more favorable light"
      Cool, but that's not what this video was about. Again, missing the point.

    • Gary Shepard
      Gary Shepard Month ago

      Gur814 Possibly abysmal for the likes of GM or Toyota (although even they have had their share of recalls, if you been following local events). However, to take to task a company which (as I have pointed out) wasn’t even in business 10 years ago for exhibiting mostly minor problems, which can be attributed to a young company, is in my opinion extremely short sighted on your part. Maybe you should have waited to purchase one of their products until all of the bugs have been worked out. The standard advise in the car industry (for companies which have been in business for decades) is never to buy a model during its first year of release. It would seem this wisdom has been lost on you. For the record, I do not own a Tesla. But, I thought it most disconcerting that you did not show in a more favorable light that they came to your home, left you with a loaner vehicle while they repaired your car. I have owned over 35 cars in my lifetime (both foreign and domestic) and never once have I been afforded the same courtesy. I think you were treated pretty damn good, my friend.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  Month ago

      I've only made 2 videos detailing the issues. The bubble was on the 2nd windshield, the 1st had much more serious scratches between the panes of glass. Plus, stuck charge port door, bad alignment, failing fan bearings, a failing touch screen, and more. You're cherry picking. Most of my issues were minor for sure, but the failing screen and bad initial windshield were pretty major problems.
      But like you said, you didn't bother watching the whole thing. Again, this isn't that complicated. It's just a list of problems. You can try to justify it all you want, but this quality is abysmal for any auto manufacturer.

    Despite your (stated) great tolerance and acceptance of all your encountered problems, your assessment of Enthusiasts vs Joe Public is completely arse about and shows a massive blind spot in your own self awareness. Motor enthusiasts of any ilk are NOTORIOUSLY LESS ACCEPTING of a manufacturer's flaws. They are far more anal and demanding of design and manufacturing perfection than normal folks who live all day and night with a whole range of goods which squeak, rattle and roll -- just so they can simply get to and from work. Normal people (who buy mass market cars like the Tesla 3 promises to be) usually ignore scheduled services, or get them done at non-genuine dealers; they have a down-to-earth attitude that perfectionism in a vehicie is both unrealistic and unattainable; they naively swallow service people's guff and bullshit.
    In short, YOU are the classic anal whinger who feels so fucking "privileged" to own such a "special"car because you consider yourself such a "special" and "deserving" person who expects 100% return on every dollar you have "invested" in your precious lump of metal and plastic for your precious ego. Why oh why -- instead endlessly calling up and calling back the service guys about this and that finicky annoyance -- don't you simply write a nice, informative but seriously concerned, supportive letter to the National Manager of Tesla Quality Control to bring the overarching issue of body quality AND REPAIR to their attention and maybe get the solutions to filter down to your/their local customer service instead of making such a detailed litany for TVclip self-glorification.

      I was in contact with Tesla management. I've been in contact with them this entire time. Why would I ever expect a return on a depreciating asset?
      Don't even bother answering. I don't really care what your response is. It will likely be so far off base that it won't warrant continued discussion. It's a shame too because I think your first paragraph had some truth to it.

That, after all is the general idea of them! OK you wan’t a luxury Car.Right?

    Curious to know how many, and what cars you’ve owned in the past? I’m on vehicle #7 of all different makes and models and have experienced most of these issues in almost every single one. This sounds like a typical car experience in general to me

    • Gur814

      No worries, man. I didn't mean that as an insult. Apologies that it came across that way. I simply meant that maybe you've had bad luck with cars you've purchased.
      A squeaky car seat is one thing. A brand new $83,000 car with more squeaks, creaks, and rattles than my 14 year old Chevy is in a whole new realm of poor quality.
      I agree that these issues are minor in the grand scheme of things but Tesla should strive for a much higher level of quality and consumers should demand more. It seems like they are being given a free pass just because they're new and innovative. I think it's a shame that some people have lowered the bar so much to allow them to get away with this sort of thing.
      I'm a fan of Tesla. I think they're doing a lot of things right but I'm also extremely disappointed in their quality.

      +Gur814 I don't know that I would say that I buy bad cars, but I'll be the first to admit that my expectations are certainly lower than yours appear to be. With 4 kids, squeaky car seats have been more of an annoyance than any sounds my cars have/are producing. I didn't actually mean for my comment to sound accusatory, just genuinely curious to know what other cars you've experienced and I'm super grateful for your reply! I've never touched a Tesla much less ridden in one. I'm not even sure how I stumbled on your video except that I'd recently started seeing so many model 3's all of a sudden that I started watching more videos about Tesla. I think my expectations for your video, especially based on the length and the title, that your car was in fact falling apart and mostly un-drivable. I also just view squeaks, rattles and minor defects to be a part of the car owning experience. Granted, I've also never spent more than $30k on a car either. I'm not trying to diminish your experience, but at the same time I cannot seem to empathize with your situation either. Cheers

      1999 Chevy Cavalier from 06 to 13
      2013 Honda Fit from 13 to 16
      2016 Tesla Model S from 16 to 18
      2018 Volt at the moment.
      I've also owned a 99 Honda Accord and currently own a 2017 Honda Accord. Both of those were/are my wife's cars but I've driven them extensively.
      When the Tesla rattles worse than a 99 Cavalier then we have a problem. The Tesla spent more time in the shop than all of the above cars combined.
      Maybe you just buy bad cars, I don't know. But this is not normal compared to any other car I've owned. Every car has rattles. That's just the way it goes, especially with the bad roads in my town. A few rattles after several thousand miles are expected. The Tesla had about 5 times more than what I'd consider acceptable.

    I'm not a fan of Tesla's build quality. Their cars are very attractive, and packed with a lot of very cool things. But the build quality is not what it should be for a car that costs so much money. It's always seemed to me lile they rush the cars off the assembly line. All those misaligned panels and trim bits would not pass QC even in lower end brands like Toyota or VW.

    • Gur814

    I am sorry video poster, at 1 min and 46 seconds in I am struggling with you. I recently bought a 50k sports car, it had panel and paint issues. I also bought another 60k luxury car and that had some minor interior issues and some scuffs on the alloys. I don't know what your background is re buying cars, but no vehicle is ever perfect. I think you just want to gain some notoriety ragging on Tesla.
    Also if I purchased a Tesla I would be more forgiving, as they are a start-up pushing bleeding edge electric car technology. If you wanted great build quality, just buy a frigging German or Japanese car. But if you want to play a part in building the future, helping to save our planet and help a visionary guy realise a world changing vision, take down the video and stop complaining... Please...

      Odd, you never told me I couldn't say positive things about Tesla when I made videos about that. Where were you then to police my content? Oh, that's right. Only positive opinions allowed. The second something negative is said I'm suddenly guilty of only wanting fame. But making several hype videos on Tesla was perfectly fine I guess.
      German and Japanese manufacturers don't currently make good long range EVs with a large DC charging network. Tesla is the only option right now for something like that. I will be buying from a better brand in the future when those types of EVs are finally released if Tesla can't figure out how quality control works.

    Let me help you understand the downvotes. They aren't down votes from "Tesla Fans". They are downvotes from people who are tired of people like you. We all know someone like you. People who are excruciatingly nit-picky, and we all know - with relative certainty - that the exact way you've catalogued your "issues" with your Tesla, you also do this in every other aspect of your life. You demand perfection in a world in which no one can truly offer this. You are the classic millenial snowflake. You literally epitomize what people can't stand about helpless, annoying, whiny millennials. Exactly the type of customer who runs to TVclip, Yelp or Google to tell the world how awful your experience has been. 3,400 people and counting think you should basically STFU, and if you want to voice your opinion on any product or service, do it with your wallet. If every customer was like you, no business would remain in business. You clearly are an employee (whatever you do for work) and not an employer.

      "Ask yourself if any of the quality control issues (which you were so very concerned about post-delivery) could or should have been identified by YOU, prior to accepting the car."
      A few were identified at delivery but most of the issues presented in this video and part 2 happened after a few weeks or months. If you applied even the smallest amount of logic to this you would have come to that conclusion.

      "I’m not advocating for there to never be negative reviews of a product or service."
      Earlier...
      "If you don’t have anything nice to say about a product or service, don’t say anything at all."
      Whoops.

      "People who need their jobs and rely on the company to sell cars."
      Then maybe Tesla should focus on building better cars. I know this is a crazy idea to you but if Tesla wants to keep those people employed they should focus more on quality so they're not wasting all this time and money on warranty claims.

      "the millennial is not so easily pleased or silenced"
      Ah, cool, dehumanization. You seem to care more about businesses than people. You should learn to have a conversation with someone without resorting to broad generalizations. This comment is pretty fucking gross.

      "You are the classic millenial snowflake. You literally epitomize what people can't stand about helpless, annoying, whiny millennials."
      "your mealy-mouthed millennial attitude"
      Earlier...
      "If you don’t have anything nice to say about a product or service, don’t say anything at all."
      But I guess I'm not a product so I don't qualify for your weird morals.

      "I guarantee you approach everything in your life..."
      Here's another reminder that you don't know me at all yet you make broad generalizations and attempt to make "guarantees" about me. This is just gross, man. I hope this quality you're showing here only applies to anonymous internet comments and you don't go around treating people like this in your daily life. It's really sad to try to dehumanize someone and treat a product better than a person.

      Do better.

    • Greg Weik
      Greg Weik Month ago

      Gur814 I see you didn’t address my original point - why so many people downvoted this video.
      Yes, you are free to review anything you want.
      No, there are no requirements that you exercise restraint or sound judgement.
      I do, however, urge you to take a step back. Ask yourself if any of the quality control issues (which you were so very concerned about post-delivery) could or should have been identified by YOU, prior to accepting the car. This is called personal responsibility or “owning it.”
      I’m not advocating for there to never be negative reviews of a product or service. There are times when a company falls short or is overtly hostile to a reasonable customer.
      If we are being honest, we would agree those times are few and far between. Tesla’s own efforts to accommodate you should have given you pause before posting your whiny videos. Yes, they are a company and not a person, but guess who works for Tesla? People. People who need their jobs and rely on the company to sell cars. The fact that Tesla as a company has made so many efforts to appease you should have kept you off the internet.
      But no... the millennial is not so easily pleased or silenced. The millennial just CANNOT keep quiet-people HAVE to know what you’re thinking!
      My point is that your mealy-mouthed millennial attitude about some extremely minor issues on an otherwise great product say far more about you, than they do about the product.
      Like I said, I guarantee you approach everything in your life with the same extremely annoying and nit-picky approach-except, probably, for identifying your own shortcomings.
      I rate you 1-star.

    • Gur814

      "no one cares about what YOU have to say"
      Nearly 1,000,000 views across all my videos proves otherwise. Like you said, the numbers don't lie.

      "If you don’t have anything nice to say about a product or service, don’t say anything at all"
      Only nice reviews allowed! God forbid we hurt the feelings of these multi billion dollar companies. Something tells me you wouldn't be saying the same thing if this video were about a Chevrolet Malibu. Why do you think reviews on Amazon exist? Why isn't every product ranked 5 stars if we're only allowed to say nice things?

      "Most parents taught their kids this valuable adage somewhere along the way"
      Your parents taught you to never dislike something you buy and to never speak bad about a bad product or service? What a weird lesson. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" applies to PEOPLE. And even then, that's not universal advice. There's always nuance.

      "Treat others the way you’d like to be treated - that includes businesses."
      No. Just no. What?! You realize I paid money for a product, right? Tesla didn't just give me this car out of the goodness of their hearts. If they didn't want people to get upset at their bad build quality then they should have invested more in quality control. This is such a ridiculous attempt to sandbag criticism that it honestly baffles me that someone can have this mindset. Tesla is a business worth billions. They are not immune to criticism when they do something wrong. We have countless people on TVclip praising Tesla for their good qualities (myself included) yet very few dare to speak out about their bad qualities. The Tesla apologists come running to save the day when they do.

      That said, I've never been rude to any of the service staff. I'm on good terms with all of them because I understand that my issues are not caused by them. Even if they were it doesn't warrant being rude to a person. See where the difference lies? I treat the service technicians as I'd like to be treated. I can do that while criticizing Tesla. Hell, most of them agree with me about Tesla's shortcoming.

    • Greg Weik
      Greg Weik Month ago

      Gur814 -The numbers don’t lie. If TVclip had a star rating system, your rating would be pretty shitty.
      My argument isn’t “silence everyone”, it’s essentially “no one cares about what YOU have to say.”
      The trend towards everyone reviewing everything all the time simply adds to the noise. Vote with your wallet, that’s the only power you deserve.
      If you don’t have anything nice to say about a product or service, don’t say anything at all. Most parents taught their kids this valuable adage somewhere along the way... Your voice is your ability to avoid buying in the future. If that’s too hard for you, you have a millennial narcissistic complex.
      Treat others the way you’d like to be treated - that includes businesses. Stop going through life like anyone owes you a goddamned thing - much less a perfect product or service - they don’t.

      This is by far one of the dumbest takes on this whole thing. By your logic no one should ever review anything, even positively. No one is allowed to talk about products or their experiences in life. Just silence everybody!
      Here's a thought. Maybe Tesla could just build their cars better. It blows my mind that this is a radical idea to some. My Honda didn't have these issues and I was just as nit picky when I owned that.

      Tesla owners, the ones ive come across are akin to the followers of jim jones. Purely irrational and longing for a place to belong, acceptance. When they cant get that even after spending thousands of dollars, some of them lose their cool and explode. Was satisfying seeing them make a complete fool of themslves but what they said about my parents wasn't called for and had nothing to do with the conversation we were having.
      You're not allowed to get inside some people's heads it seems, it freaks them out to the point of outburst. I call it as I see it to a person's face and not behind their backs in day to day encounters, either that or I dont say anything to anyone, about anyone else. If i dont like what someone is doing or saying, I keep it to myself or tell them to their face and break down why I disagree.

      This is such a silly argument. You're assuming that I don't appreciate the good aspects of the car or the fact that I can even afford it. I can appreciate the good while also criticising the bad. It's not all or nothing. I even say as much in the video. This was a video specifically about the flaws. I have other videos where I talk about the good stuff.

    I notice a pattern in the history of your video's, they payed you off to finally write a more positive review. This will stop when they go bankrupt in 2019 :)

      You speak with such certainty on topics you're wrong about. Very interesting.

    I drive a Toyota Aygo. I payed 10.000 Euro for it. Eight years without one single problem. Starts every day. Boring. The passenger seat rattled once. I just sat on it, changed positions a bit, and it never rattled again.

    you could have fixed or dealt with so many of these issues. Not all were even that bad. Sort of half legitimate half being a nitpicker.

      It wasn't. Tesla was able to fix it after a 3rd attempt.
