build quality on my car and every owner I've spoken with is fine. Of course you will find a few bad cars out of 90k every quarter. It is just with Tesla they seem to make front page news and with other manufacturers you don't hear about it. overblown in my opinion.
Maybe, but then why the terrible JD Power rating for initial quality? That sort of thing affects sales in the long run.
Could be that Tesla doesn't pay J D Powers to do surveys. It's an open secret that J D Powers will figure out a Survey that makes you come out on top if you pay them to. It's then obvious that anybody who doesn't pay them ends up ranking lower.
Thanks. Since I have never spoken to a Tesla owner complaining about build quality you may have a valid point.

I've never heard of johnlocke's assertion until recently.

I've posted about a guy at work at viewtopic.php?p=539275#p539275 before and probably elsewhere. I've pointed out to a different Model 3 driver at work that his taillights had condensation inside, which he then acknowledged and hadn't known about before.

Although this is borderline a reliability prob vs. build quality, but someone at my work told me about the story of a child in their carpool group. The child would ask "what color is the car going to be today?" Turns out the driver had a Model X that was in the shop so much, they would get a loaner each time and usually of a different color.

It is no surprise than the has every year so far, the Model X been in the bottom 10 of Consumer Reports reliability ratings.

The Model X is just too complicated to interest me even if I had the money.

I am interested to see the look and feel of the $25K Model C (Cheap). :)

^^^ The Model C comes with pre-detached fenders, in all the colors of the rainbow. Quite literally, as none of the body panels will be the same color!

The QC issues have been widely discussed on tmc by owners bitching about them - J.D. Power doesn't have to make anything up.

Friday's TSLA close: $1544.65 +$150.37 (10.78%)

Aren't "momentum" stocks fun? Will TSLA be the next "tulip mania" or will it be the next AMZN.

Place your bets and roll the dice!

Even if the stock value drops by half, the crazy high stock price provides considerable support for capital raising in a capital-intensive industry.

This valuation seems even more reasonable!

Yes indeed. The entire nature of the EV market is moving so fast I'm surprised TSLA can even keep up. Good to see that free market economics really does work as well as advertised.

I detected it, but remember Poe's Law.

TSLA is a lottery ticket. Probably worthless before 20 years, but might be worth a lot more than today's valuation.

I don't put my net worth on red or black and spin the wheel.

Looks like TSLA came back to earth a bit. It is now only up about $48 at $1592. Apparently, it hit $1794.99 earlier today. CRAZY!
