Well the fit & finish thing can be seen by the process on their production line ... like at their Fremont site.The Model Y that my daughter bought new (on line) and picked up a week ago had about 10 fit and finish issues including exterior scratches, interior pieces not aligning, various other mostly minor issues. Dropped it off same day to be fixed and it’s still there. Apparently they needed to repaint the hood as the blemishes weren’t fixable by buffing out. Perhaps this is the exception and most Tesla’s are fine but it leaves me wondering a little.
yeah everyone i mean everyone in my circle are amazed at the comfy level of the standard front seats and the same group bitches and complains about the backThough I gave the nod to the CLA seats, a woman I admire pronounced the Tesla the most comfortable car in which she'd ever sat.
My two nephews, both 6'5", could barely endure short rides in the CLA back seat, but happily sit in the Tesla's.
if you think the s is too low dont think you will like the gts (expensive go kart)While the Y is being fixed for defects and hood painting, we are driving around in a loaner Model S. The rear seating basically is not comfortable for me at all. Of course, my son-in-law (who’s been driving it) is law is very tall, so the front driver seat is far back. I find it’s cramped and the seats seem too low. Getting in and out is not much fun. Every time we stop to charge it, at least I get 30 to 45 minutes to stretch my legs.
The loaner S has about 45k miles on it and it’s getting around 180 to 200 miles in between charges. Since we are driving the S around a lot (it’s the loaner and Tesla is paying for the recharges…), we are doing some decent trips up and down the coast between LA and San Diego. Also, son in law is heavy footed, so…. well we know what that means to battery charges. 45 mins at a “Supercharger” station just about tops it off. I noticed it’s pumping 75kW or more of juice at first then it drops off at the end of the charge.if you think the s is too low dont think you will like the gts (expensive go kart)
so you getting say 310mi between charges?
still about full charge in 45min?
Well you have to change all the AA batteries like you do in this Benz:Sorry, a few dumb questions. What do you do with a Tesla when you near the end of it's battery life? Is there any residual value left in them besides scrap value? Is it worth replacing the batteries? How does cold climate (-29 F.) and a lot of salt in the Winter affect them?
