    Hesitated to sell all my Tesla stock during these last few weeks of downhill red. This video just convinced me my favorite car brand is most likely headed the way of the Delorean.

    The dealer experience is even worse than the online experience. I put the holding deposit on a 2019 long range model S. After I payed the deposit, the sales person just ghosted me out. And hey, he also is very misinformed, he quoted me $103k for my trade in, but when the trade in team at Tesla called me, they offered $86k, and they were telling me that if the car if financed, it might change the estimate (lol!). I cancelled my order, they said my holding deposit is going to take about 6 weeks to be processed, and that I cannot get any cancellation emails until the sales manager approves my cancellation, that all being said, when in the sale policy it says, cancel anytime, hassle free, before you pick up the vehicle (even a week after pick up or 1000 miles). They are very shady, feels like it's being run by colleague students who have no idea about sales and customer experience.

    Moms are great. Fanbois not so much. Any transaction should assume some minimal level of customer service no matter the business which at the very least includes being given the item you've paid for. Seems pretty basic.

    I looked as Model S's and I just couldn't do it. there are other cars that have autopilot systems many of which are much better. I ended up getting a Volvo S90, they come with autopilot, it's not quite as good as Tesla's system but at $55k brand new, more room, and the convenience of gas fillups I couldn't be happier, I'm usually an early adopter, but when it comes to items that are needed for life, I don't risk, and I don't overspend. I will own an all electric car one day I believe but it's not now.

    I have been thinking of getting a Tesla for my wife. After seeing this video of how hard and impractical it its I will get her a gas car instead. Spending 2 months on insurance for something you have not seen and getting the run around puts me off. You have over half a million subscribers and word got back to the "manager" about their bad PR; as a person with no online influence I imagine my experience would be 10x worse. Step up your game !!!! They want to send people to space but can't put you in a car.... LOL

    No title means no car. They sold you a nonexistent car and proceeded to wait until one popped up. I see right through the Tesla scam. They want your money. Period. Only idiots buy them. I appreciate you taking them on but any vehicle produced by such an awful company is going to be a piece of crap. I think I will be driving my 2001 Jetta after most Teslas have been scrapped. You, sir, jusgot bent over a table and sold an unrecovered repo car at top dollar!

    I had a very disappointing experience with my Tesla Model 3 purchase. They snuck in items to my order that I did not approve and gave me a final total that I needed to give my bank for the check to be written and approved that day. Nothing was done on their end for customer satisfaction AT ALL.

    Just more proof that Tesla is being run by a bunch of techie hipsters who have NO idea how to run a business or provide even passable customer service. Elon Musk is a distracted idiot who has no idea how to focus on anything. (Oh lets squirt people to LA in vacuum tubes, that’s really important) I am sorry but I am praying this all come to a head when the company goes into bankruptcy and Elon Musk does some jail time for fraud.

    Seems like a pretty broken company when they do this to you. Buying a used one can be good though, as all new Teslas are extremely pricy. You need at least 50.000-60.000 to get a Model 3 with decent options, for that money you can buy a much better EV from any of the regular makers.

    • ObsidianGT
      ObsidianGT 18 days ago

      Please tell me who makes a "much better EV" compared to a $50-$60K Tesla Model 3. Please, I'm very curious.
      If you say Jaguar with their I-Pace, no, not even close. Maybe nice for a luxury car, but subpar for an EV.
      If you say the brand new Audi e-Tron, first, good luck getting one (seriously might be easier getting a used Tesla), second, pretty sure it's neck and neck with the Jaguar, IOW, subpar.
      Mercedes EQC? Slightly better, still subpar! Good luck getting one in 2019.
      These above are decently-appointed luxury vehicles that have no clue what it takes to be even an average EV. They're repurposed ICEV platforms while they deliver in terms of fit and finish (initial quality), they're wholely supplanting even basic potential of an EV. A lot more weakness rather than strength here.
