    So I'm in the battery industry and soooo many people think that they are the way to the future and they are sooooo clean and reliable... I'm here to tell you that they are none of those things... while there is a long way to go for the future of batteries and more energy dense materials , but they are far from clean... most just ignore this but there are some on the left that blatantly deny this fact. Moving on what people never think of is what about ten years down the road ? What do you do with a battery that won't hold a charge? Now imagine every car manufacturer switching to electric... that's a lot of leftover toxic chemicals.. to be quite honest there will always be a need for batteries but for transportation the answer is probably going to be using hydrogen combustion...thanks for listening

    It is vitally important when buying a new car to thoroughly read the TERMS and CONDITIONS, or better yet, get a lawyer to read them to you and translate them into something you can understand. And if the terms and conditions all fall in favour of the company you are buying from, TAKE YOUR MONEY ELSEWHERE.

    Thank your for your candor, and advocation for customer respect. I am sorry that you have received retaliation for your honesty. How Tesla could feel you diminish their reputation by actively trying to make known the growing pains of a beloved company that you personally have a stake in, I do not understand. I love the idea of Tesla as a company, and as part of a much larger picture I believe in. I also believe in the right to repair at least half as fervently as you do. I personally praise you for critically looking at the Tesla Company and doing your part to make it better, even if they seem to rather shoot themselves in the foot and put a bandage there before looking at the problems they could do literally Anything about. I support Elon, Tesla, and the big picture at play, despite human errors not unique to this business that are still ugly. Again, thank you.

    I'm certainly not the person to tinker with my car for fun, but I will try and fix things that seem within my skill level. Tesla's seem really neat, people seem to love owning them, but as with Apple, the decidedly anti-right to repair position Tesla has taken and continues to take is all the reason I need to avoid buying their products. Good thing with Apple is there are plenty of great alternatives. Good thing with Tesla is I don't need a new vehicle right now.

    The reason a tiny % of repaired or savage Tesla are on the road is because Tesla doesn't even sell many cars in the first place. Not sure why people would invest in a company that is brand new at building cars and can't even produce supply when other automotive brands overwhelm the market with sales and reliability records. First 3 years that the Model S came out they had high reliability scores, then after that boom, plagued with problems and fit and finish.

    How does one fight shady business behaviour like this? Seriously...anything short of throwing bricks in to showroom windows will get you a “we understand your frustration, now sod off and die” from some underpayed helpdesk person. I prefer the iOs interface over Android and Im sure a lot of people prefer Tesla over the alternatives in the same way. Now we all know that according to the book you vote with your dollar but in industries where you need to invest billions of dollars of capita before a single phone or car is manufactured, the companies can all just do the same and sell incomplete, unrepairable products. It’s not like the average consumer will develop his or her own smarphone or electric car. Buying older models isnt really an option either: I can get a 2002 Civic or any other traditional car and be fine with it for a long time. I cant get a 2002 smartphone or electric car because there weren’t any yet. These product categories are so new, looking a few years back is not a question of lesser efficiency but a question of existance and sadly If a few companies have an oligopoly over them now, they will probably have it later so I dont see who the situation can be improved

    I appreciate all your work, if Tesla wants to be a household name they are going to have to support their products. I am truly saddened it takes guys like you, calling them on their weak excuses to do the right thing and support their products. The truth is all cars are just as dangerous as EV vehicles and the risks are damn near identical repairing them, yet if ford, Honda, General Motors, or any other major auto manufacturer used these tactics they would be blasted from every direction and a media frenzy would ensue. As a person who was considering restoring a damaged Tesla, your channel helped me decide I don’t want to support their product until they support their customers, ALL of them. I still think they are a good company, but they need a swift kick in the butt to remind them to do the right thing here
