Diego : Jesus, when he started listing the problems with the car it really makes you wonder if it's made of defective legos.

Germaphobic : Leaking tail lights? What were they leaking? Blinker fluid?

srercrcr : Its common knowledge to avoid first year models.

david juneja : I think people are defending Tesla too much in coment section. At the end of the day it still is a company.

Vocalead : Surprised a lot of dumb people in the comments don’t realize this is a right-to-repair claim against Tesla, not just a story about his warranty expiring.

cm 24 : My car is out of warranty, I fix it myself. Do I also get to be on the news?

Nexus 7 : So, basically Tesla's are not reliable. How can a window regulator go bad/malfunction? LOL My Japanese car is 20 yrs old and still has the original factory installed regulator which has not failed.

Steve Silvas : This Guy is TESLAS nightmare... He could start his own Shop..

Logaweed : It’s sad that a man repairing his own car is mainstream news nowadays.

Black Dynamite : Buy a Tesla sell before warranty ends

Martin Rey : If he buys a Tesla, it is because he has the money to buy it and maintain it. So, I don't get the point of it.

M DeAngelo : My car is out of warranty and now you expect me to PAY for repairs? How rude, WELCOME..... to the real world...

DikoMan : Umm, how is this different then other car manufacturers? Once warranty is done you are on your own.

Boognish : Note to self: Wait 10 years to buy a Tesla, if it's still around.

Holly Wood : Wait until Toyota start to get real serious about making electric car. Bye bye Tesla.

Isabella A : Tesla is like Apple, only they want to repair their products and service them so they make it impossible for the consumer to do it on their own

v v : The more the electronics the more will be the complications. I like cars with less of computerization and more of pure mechanical stuff.

Kamote Tops : The more electronics in your car, the more pain owning them post warranty.

Manik Chauhan : BuT TeSlA Is ThE FuTuRe! have fun with 14k repairs on your new car😂 *LAUGHS IN MUSK*

Jake Masters : Tesla sounds like every other car company, just to new to the market for the abundance of “generic” parts

Disloyal Dashie : they shouldn't ever know anything about what's going on with YOUR car. They are watching everything you do with in that car

bbpetrov : /*sips his coca-cola*/ LET'S FIGHT CONSUMERISM!!!

boomoperator90 : Where's my Rich Rebuilds boys at?

toobeer : I will always drive my 20 MPG truck cause these things just ain't ready for prime time and maybe never will be. They are waaaaay overpriced and built for yuppie libs that don't realize charging them not only costs a lot but also causes pollution on a power plant level. They are not saving the planet.
