    Imagine the poor service from Audi, mercedes or BMW. Tesla is a good car, but the service is very poor. One of the reason it isn't successful in Europe.

    Great video - one piece of feedback: I feel like you could have been more kind to Acura or maybe highlighted something you liked about their vehicles, if anything?
    No I don’t work for Acura :).

    I am in CA and just learned our M3 body work could only be done by Tesla certified body shops. They will not ship replacement parts to non-certified shops.
    Our M3 had a fender bender, not knowing the rules, I took it to a regular shop got an estimate of $3,989, then the shop found out they could not get parts.
    I then went to a Tesla certified shop and the estimate was $3,489, a surprise! Now I am waiting for the parts to arrive, was told up to 6 weeks. Luckily the car is totally driveable.
    But I did not like the up-to-6-weeks deal, so emailed Tesla. They have a body repair service email account, I got a rely that they will monitor the order and try to expedite the shipment.
    Two days later my insurance called that they approved the repair, and the same day Tesla emailed me the parts order was in the pipeline (was told it required a total of 14 replacement parts) and they were monitoring the shipping progress.
    Not bad so far!

    People defending body shops milking insurance need to understand that it affects you badly. 50k for this is stupid. I bet if we saw a fully itemized list of the charges labor would end up being 50% if not more of the total cost. I have seen hourly labor costs in the 200+ dollar range before. Do you think the insurance companies are gonna eat this? Fuck no they are gonna make insurance on that particular car expensive. This is why Tesla's have one of the highest insurance costs in America. Not saying Tesla is completely abdicated, they aren't but body shop abuse affects everyone.

    I have an X. I have had so many problems with it in only 5 months. Half-shafts are bad, and they said its a design issue so they won’t fix them. I have to constantly reboot the system because my volume won’t work or slacker just stops loading. My left window always has water on it, because the seal isn’t great, etc. Have you ever had any problems like this with your car? I know how much you like it but for 100k its hard to swallow. One other question, you have said that you feel Tesla is above the standard in tech, which somethings yes, however do you feel it should have some other music service besides slacker? Or even android auto / car play?

    Body shops in general don’t stock any body parts in stock! Since they cater to various car brands, unless they are an exclusive body shop that provide service for a specific auto brand only! so in other words your status and connection with Tesla made it possible to locate and access the replacement parts, the next day your MS was towed into their repair facility! Having your status and connections played the major part in getting your car back in such a very short with a major 50k worth or repairs. You are very popular and worked hard to be where you are, so you have earned the special treatment you got when you needed it. Thanks!😀✌🏻

    That whole deal you went through was a scam, usually if the damage costs 50-75% of the cars entire worth they just total the entire thing, 50k in damages? Car can’t be worth much more than that...

I went to the tesla website and saw you can order a tesla Y already, but the it said "page not found" ... then I went to the top right to see the cars, the roadster is on the list... you could see the range and mph for a sec.... then it was gone. It was there for like 5 sec and then the page was lost.
