Consumer Reports Takes Tesla Off Reliability

http://i.cdn.turner.com/money/.element/script/7.0/players/embed.js?videoid=/video/luxury/2015/10/14/tesla-driverless-car.cnnmoney

Consumer Reports took off Tesla from reliability tests because of complaints with charging, noises, and other complaints with the car. It was on top earlier this year from Consumer Reports but since this report came up, Tesla shares went down 10%.

I have recently studied Tesla’s marketing and how they have been dubbed as the “Apple Store” of the auto industry. They have been doing very well and shares have been going up for the company. But a nearly maintenance free vehicle, how can you fix it if it breaks down? Can you go to a trusted mechanic? The answer is, nope, they most likely need to be trained by Tesla, how can you get those electric motors fixed?

It’ll be a while until electric cars can go to a trusted mechanic, in my opinion, it’s more like going to a trusted “electrician”.For now I’ll stick with Hybrids and Gas engine cars. Tesla is also having charging issues from customer complaints and charging stations are still being made around the country.

I had never driven a Tesla but seeing these cars in the mall is very interesting .Tesla does not use dealerships to sell their vehicles and seeing some supercharging stations around the country in different rest stops looks like a great deal.

A great deal if you’re local I guess?

I’m not sure about taking an electric car cross country because I have tried driving a few electric cars upstate and over 100 miles and it is…TOUGH…. I had to scout for different charging stations and on the way, fearing that the car would die on the way or be stranded in the middle of no where with an electric car.

Charging stations for Tesla are evolving and growing but only in some certain cities. I haven’t seen much in Central Jersey and South Jersey. Check out the video to see how advanced this ride is.
