Blind Item #1

Our celebrity CEO is running out of tricks up his sleeve.  He had big plans for that new car model. It was supposed to be a lot less expensive when originally promised. Instead, it was only somewhat less expensive, and the quality is terrible. People are finding that out, and there is nothing he can do about it.

What a scam artist Musk turned out to be! Wasn't he supposed to be the next big hope for mankind...peoplekind for you Canadians?

Every sucker who buys a car as badly built as a tesla deserves all the repair bills coming to them.

The sad thing is, this wouldn't have blown up like this if Musk didn't insist on remaining in charge - i.e., if there was a non-famewhre CEO in charge of the company with actual manufacturing experience and not dealing with mental health issues, she/he would not have been so bombastic and boasting about the cars, which would've lowered expectations in the market, and they would've dealt with quality issues because they would be full time CEOs focused on the business.

The fact remains he did start a new car company, and an electric car at that - and that itself is quite a feat, given the fact the top selling vehicle for most of the past 20 years has been a Ford F150 oversized gas-guzzling pickup truck.

ALL new car models have quality issues of some sort, as the kinks in manufacturing get worked out - just read Consumer Reports and you see it. But he over-hyped his product. You make your bed, you lie in it.

Anyone can make a Rolls Royce (Tesla) but you need engineering skill to make an affordable reliable car.

Is this a blind? Why?

I drive Tesla. The only problem that I’ve had is that it sometimes takes me a few tries to close one of the windows. Love my car!
