  • Re: Is Tesla A Game Changer?

    I'll believe it when I see it. I doubt most actual truck users (as opposed to suburban posers) can deal with the logistical difficulties of EVs.

    I have to believe the brand will sell well in VA though, lots of money floating around esp after the 125BN Pentagon waste boondoggle has been exposed :)

    The truck idea sounds like more of Musk's Mars nonsense.

    As for the Tesla dealer issue, there have certainly been "factory stores" sprinkled throughout large cities in the U.S, owned and operated by the car makes themselves, and generally they are quite successful.

    If you don't think people will pay extra to "get out of hell", consider how successful the airlines have been with that type of business model.

    Keep us in the loop regarding how it drives and the MPG you get.

    Quite frankly, I have little sympathy when a dealer gets the "grind". It's payback time! They created the environment, so they can cope with it. Besides, the Germans are utterly shameless with their options list.

    One of our sales advisors is going through an ordeal with a customer. I can't disclose many details except that it's an exec who makes over $3,000,000 per year and he's wanting a $100 discount on some replacement tires and also wants another $20 knocked off a mobility kit(tire inflator and goop). All for a vehicle with an MSRP north of $80,000...
    Now you know how he makes $3M a year! :D

    The Mini Cooper got her annual detail and wax. She tried to run away but to no avail.

    Phew! This is a lot of work to do a car top to bottom.

    I should do like @breld and just sell it when it gets that dirty.
