You're on it right now. Even though these discussions sometimes devolve into protracted, seemingly useless arguments, for the most part the crowd sourced information available on any EV forum is irreplaceable. These are reports from everyday drivers, not salespeople.

Online owners and service manuals are also useful.

It's not anywhere near as bad as it gets on teslamotorsclub.com. Over there, hh boy, any sort of hot button or even not so big issue that some folks take an interest in can either turn into a very long thread w/petty arguments and/or explode rapidly.

On the flip side, there are some topics which IMHO should be of more interest on "TMC" that just get crickets.
