So, essentially, the car broke the machine designed to break the car.

I think this may be one reason why some RW state legislatures and governors are going to such lengths to keep Teslas from being sold in their states. They’re protecting other car manufacturers in their states whose products can’t measure up to the Tesla’s safety record and its’ ability to wean its’ drivers off of gas.

I think it is more a matter of protecting dealers than manufacturers. Dealers tend to be a very powerful local lobby in most states. Tesla’s sales model makes dealers very nervous. If Tesla agreed to license dealerships like all the other manufacturers I am guessing a lot of the opposition would go away.

There’s a reason the stereotype of the shifty car dealer exists.

Neat.

Agreed. I want one so badly. Too bad they’re so insanely expensive.

Also, between here and my mom’s house 300+ miles away, there are only a handful of charging stations. And where my grandmother and other relatives live, there isn’t a single charging station AT ALL. I’d be screwed if I couldn’t find a place to plug in and charge, especially on the road.

Hopefully they’ll start putting more charging stations out there.

Actually, I think Tesla solved the problem by making the batteries easier to hot switch out.

That still doesn’t solve my problem of not being able to afford a Tesla. Heh.

Maybe someday. A girl can dream.
