Tesla and their warranty problem with the Model S

Recommended Posts

Tesla drive-train issue

 

 

Summary
  • Many reports are circulating about Model S drivetrains needing to be replaced.
  • The cost of these replacements is likely to significantly worsen Tesla's operating losses.
  • The $15,000 ex-warranty replacement cost may significantly affect the resale value of the car and thus the cost of Tesla's "Resale Value Guarantee" program.

Just saw that on Yahoo. I can't wait to see the Tesla nutswingers excuses in the comment section tomorrow.

Interesting. As integrated as the battery and electric motor packs are in Tesla's designs, I think powertrain replacements could affect a lot more of the rest of the vehicle than replacing a traditional engine/transmission which is relatively isolated from the rest of the vehicle by comparison.

But you know, the *integrated* powertrain and battery pack is what makes the Tesla *so much better* than those *idiots* in Detroit who, despite building cars for over a century, have *no idea* how to build cars, as compared to people in the *tech industry* who know everything.
