Agree, but Tesla is not one of those companies wasting money.

How is Tesla a scam? They are great cars packed with tons of technology. I don't think they are trying to swindle anyone.

He thinks one of these teslas will blow up next to him. It's an irrational fear. Also not surprised that the tesla haters are people with political agendas. I'm amazed this wasn't posted on the poli board.

A 3rd Tesla

So then 3... out of 19,000? And you're celebrating their demise? That's fricking stupid. How about the Ford Pinto? The GM trucks that exploded from being t-boned? The Corvair? The entire 2011 Toyota lineup? The Firestone Wilderness A/T fiasco? The fact that Ferrari's self immolate in traffic all the time (same for Lamborghini)?

Every manufacturer has had issues. If their products are worth a shite otherwise, they figure out solutions. Tesla is run by, probably, the smartest evil genius this country has seen in a generation. Have you seen the crash test video? The car is built like a bank vault.

How about the gubment bailout of GM? How about UAW workers making $80/hour turning lugnuts?

a) I doubt there are many Teslas running around whatever redneck town you live in. 2) you think a car catching fire is more dangerous for you - in another vehicle - than someone texting & driving or any other variable?

Ohhhh. You're looking out for those poor saps who can afford to spend $80k on an electric car. Well, thank God you're here, Ralph Nadar.

And you won't hear them protesting about government subsidies to big oil either.

I guess Ford has never had a problem with their cruise control switches starting fires.


Or Ford Pintos being rolling fireworks displays?

And I was a Ford guy for a long time, and drove a 1979 Pinto, which I really liked.

Nobody is perfect. Sony Laptops were catching fire over battery issues - does that mean Sony is a crap company?

Compared to other motor cars at the time, yes. Yes it was.

Please expand on these supposed "subsidies".

As for the tesla.. Great car, great technology, IMO good safety record for all the technology packed in by a newer company.. I hope they can become sustainable without assistance.

I believe Tesla already paid their Fed Gov loan back. EARLY.

I think for a first ever vehicle from a ground up company the S is a solid car. But I do find it funny that they sued Top Gear over comments about battery quality, when now it looks like Jeremy Clarkson knew exactly what he was warning British consumers of.


The Tesla problems go beyond the fires.

IIRC, they also have a severe problem with the battery life. As in "If they ever completely run out of charge, they're bricked."

Given how much a battery for one of those things costs and how far you can go between charging stations, that's a big problem.



The company's offering a battery replacement plan but the price and terms are insane.

Something like $40K for a battery if you don't have the plan, about $12K with the plan but you have to buy the plan within 90 days of taking possession of the car, the plan only applies to the original owner of the car, and you don't get the battery until 8 years after taking possession.

Hopefully this is the beginning of the end for liberal green energy. This is America. Get that shite outta here.

A 3rd Tesla has now caught fire, for . . . yup guessed it, running over a piece of metal in the road. I would hate to see what happens when one is involved in an actual collision with another vehicle

Stock dropped from $184 to $139, and that was before word of the 3rd fire

The end is near



You myopic, narrow-minded people are so funny.

re: Tesla is a crappy car
This board amazes me. Liberals are a significant portion of this country for better or worse. How is innovation not American? Are we not a nation that is so fricking awesome because of our amazing technological advancements over the years? Hopefully, the Tesla is a just another step towards a better tomorrow.
