Agree that $40k would be a fairer price for what we drove last weekend, although I'm not sure how to figure current pricing given all the up and down we've seen.
That said, there is also a long list of negatives weighing the scales on the other side of things with Tesla vehicles. Anything Tesla is just not going to find its way into my garage at any price. At this point, I'm done with Elon.
The interior regression on controls was already a deal-killer in my mind. His antics more recently have just piled on. I'm done with Elon.
The sooner he steps away from Tesla, the better. Tesla needs a Gwynne Shotwell. Elon needs to stay sober and take *all* of his meds *all* of the time.
I may still consider their Powerwall (on the back of the garage, lol), at some point in the future, but am actively watching for another option there as well. No rush in either case. Battery tech continues to advance in lots of places. Interesting times ahead. For now, the Powerwall product appears to be the clear leader, and if installed by a reputable vendor, you can have a decent experience. There are no other options for their cars - you deal with the insanity you signed up for.
I don't have patience for that kind of customer service, or lack thereof. Nissan has had its issues as well, certainly, but our dealer has been quite good. No complaints with them or the Leaf. Otherwise we'd be long gone by now.
