The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

Honestly not sure if it's an April Fool's joke or not. All mention of the Cybertruck was scrubbed from the Tesla website months ago, production dates were delayed and no new delivery estimates were set.

The article starts by saying Elon "confirmed", but then it says insiders heard him considering it.
Yet more recalls:

Check out Texas Gigafactory

Still guilty of racism, but not as much. Still horrifying:

I don't disagree. The public roads are not the place to test experimental robots. Tesla has a history of playing fast and loose with the law and taking production shortcuts. Their system might be okay on interstates where the traffic flow is simplified and there's no cross traffic, pedestrians, cyclists, or other obstacles - but it should be banned on surface streets.

Company insiders rip Tesla’s stance on safety in hard-hitting Elon Musk doc​

Premiering Friday on FX and Hulu, the 75-minute fright show spotlights the persistent dangers of Tesla’s automated driving technologies, the company’s lax safety culture, Musk’s P.T. Barnum-style marketing hype and the weak-kneed safety regulators who seem not to care.
"Phantom braking" issue accelerating?

U.S. NHTSA asks Tesla to respond by June 20 in brake activation probe​

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Friday it asked Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) to respond to questions by June 20 after it received 758 reports of unexpected brake activation tied to the carmaker's driver assistance system Autopilot.

^Could the increase in "phantom braking" be related to dropping radar?

Watch out for the Tesla brake test:eek:
Now we see what shenanigans Musk pulls. Expect quite a few inflammatory tweets to derail news coverage.

Data likely shows Teslas on Autopilot crash more than rivals​

The government will soon release data on collisions involving vehicles with autonomous or partially automated driving systems that will likely single out Tesla for a disproportionately high number of such crashes.
Who would have thought that a "Fuck it, ship it now and fix it later" approach to self-driving 4,000 lb vehicles would yield dangerous outcomes?

Early days
Automakers reported nearly 400 crashes of vehicles with partially automated driver-assist systems, including 273 involving Teslas, according to statistics released
Can Tesla creepwear be turned off?
Tesla’s crash number also may be high because uses telematics to monitor its vehicles and get real-time crash reports. Other automakers don’t have such capability, so their reports may come slower or crashes may not be reported at all, NHTSA said. A message was left seeking comment from Tesla.
Chinese worried about Tesla creepwear?
