Hello everybody.

I was shocked when I read this. about the electric Tesla cars.

You must be logged in to see this link.

It is ok to help people flee the hurricane BUT:

A tesla car could drive 40 more miles and the tesla company usually blocs that??? They can remotedly have contact with my car and change the settings without me knowing it??????

I also read that if I buy a tesla car, i have to sign a contract or agreement saying that:

- you may not sell the car for more than you bought it...

- You may not critisize the car on social media

So first, if I buy a car, and that has nothing to do with tesla, i own it, its mine.. I can sell it to any price and if I find someone stupid enough to buy it for 1 million dollars, then Its a problem betwenn him and me, and tesla company has not to interfere.
(i do understand why they do it tough , but i do not accept it)

If I own a car and the one I bought has problems i want to be able to talk about it.. the non posting agreement you sign would be, at least in Austria where i live against the law..

And third.. if a company can make changes on my car (we are talking a car I bought, not rented or leased)or on something I own, without me knowing it, i will never ever agree to this!!!!

Attention I am not saying i do not want them to be able to make remote changes, i am saying they have to ask for permission before doing it !!! (and not as they did, inform customers afterwards)

Also they didnt do it for people using the cheaper batteries...

That is why i will never buy a tesla car


Please change section if this is wrong place for post..
but as we were talking electric cars here, so i thought it was appropriate..

I would love one myself, but that remote changing of settings is out of the question.
I have never heard of anyone buying any car and reselling it for a profit, so that would not bother me.
It has already been shown on TV programs (designated survivor) what happens when somebody takes control of your car - they can send you off a cliff or into a tree - which was claimed to be done only a few years back, killing the driver (a journalist about to break a big story). They can be hacked in just a few mins.

I have looking at the Nissan Leaf recently, but after bringing Nissan through the Irish courts and winning my case 11 years ago, I don't think I could bring myself to buy another Nissan car.
