Considering they’re „not one of the established Auto makers“, they sure as hell studied the „dumb excuses against recalls“ handbook that seems to come with that... 🤦‍♂️

... I have actually encountered someone on the road that operated their wipers by way of a piece of string through the side windows, so...

Well, it's official, my 188,500 mile 2006 utility Nissan has more working features than some Teslas. At least my defroster works.

I'm almost surprised they didn't go for "you can trigger the defroster via mobile app in case the screen stops working".

And much like that BMW, it would have a PITA of a learning curve unless you are somehow innately good with it :p

Maybe a good idea to keep both hands on steering wheel!

Mt Tesla S75’s driver rear suspension failed while I was driving at highway speed on I-95 north on 1/15/2021. This happened out of blue, no pothole or accident etc. Suddenly, my Tesla MS was jerking violently side to side between lanes after a laud noise. I was somehow able to move this unsteerable car across 3-lane traffic and brought it to stop on the right side medium. This happened on a busy highway before MLK long weekend. Thank the many drivers who managed to avoid hitting us, I miraculously survived this incident but left severely traumatized.
