    I walked around about 20 teslas this far and I the quality is so frikkin bad. I work at Mercedes Germany and I'm propably used to higher standards but the paintjobs are sloppy, the panel gaps are inconsistent and as you mentioned they are not the best at costomer services. So I don't think tesla is there yet. I'd rather buy a Hyundai

    I agree with everything except once you got on about Autopilot. Anyone who thinks autopilot means "set my ass in the seat and proceed to not pay any attention"... Doesn't have the slightest clue how autopilot works in all but the most advanced aircraft control systems. Now once they started calling it "Full self-drive" that becomes a whole different conversation.

    My problem is you’re comparing apples to oranges here. Tesla is a fairly new company and having complaints and concerns is good. They do what they do to not get snuffed out by larger more established companies. Where your car is only the way it is because Tesla is so popular and needed to compete.

    Yes, Tesla is a success story and a disruptor of an entire industry. But that's exactly why it's important not to fall into adulation and jump on the hypetrain. That's why I find your video all the better, because you don't chum up (but also don't hate), but simply give a critical, well-founded opinion. Thank you!

    I think linus did a fair review highlighting the + points of tesla . But i think he went a little hard on the criticism just not to sound like a fanboy , i dont own a tesla - i want to when i can afford it ........ having said that lets just say linus messed up big time for not doing a detailed review of the Auto pilot system , He was able to get a loaner for doing a segway for alex i imagine he could have got a loaner with FSD enabled ........ and about the forbes article i did read through the article and only thing which was mentioned very clearly was that they did not have the data , which Tesla has ...... It would also be of interest that the author of the article has a history of hating on tesla autopilot ........ my point being this was not an objective and sincere review of the autopilot system .... would have preferred some emphasis on the fact that the software is under active development and that more updates are expected to improve the system over time .

    Tesla acting like Apple about right to repair *for a 40,000+ car* is a big thing that turns me off. They're the best electric car maker in the game right now but I'm not taking out a 5 year loan to buy a car that will throw a tempur tantrum and lock itself in it's room if somebody other than a tesla certified mechanic tries to fix it from a company that won't let me buy parts or trim pieces from them. I work in IT cause I like the admin experience, I'm not gonna be a user in my own damn car. If I stomp around on the gas my 90s Lexus will salute and get to work wasting fuel cause it has a manual throttle body. If I open it up and slap a new starter motor in there it'll dutifully send it power when I turn the key whether it's a genuine Lexus part, a rebuilt Camry part, or a literal pumpkin and at no point will it ask any of the parts to verify that they're genuine Lexus parts. I could replace the wheels with concrete blocks and the worst thing it'll do is turn off the traction control and light up the tire pressure light. For the amount of money a Tesla costs I want a car not an ink jet printer.

    I know this is a tech channel but linking your phone isn't a selling point for a car really. you can get a Bluetooth headunit off amazon and stick it in a 25 year old car and you have GPS etc. I will try and probably buy a Tesla in the future but so many inexperienced mom and pop's with a car that can do 0-60 in 4.6 is dangerous.

    Tesla does everything with the touchscreen, because its cheaper. Adding a menu for the wipers is a lot cheaper than adding a psysical button. Thats also the reason why premium cars dont go for touchscreen only, but have often a lot more buttons. They are better than touchscreen, but also more expensive.
