And when you replace one cell (for $1000) you think the other 6,999 will last forever, right? So, 25 other out of the 7000 fail at different times, you've spent $25,000 with more that can fail. THAT'S why they replace the whole pack.

Of all the cars you could have bought, knowing the warranty was up in 8 years.. you bought this one? Seriously? And the previous owner didn't have this taken care of under warranty? I'm thinking this doesn't pass the sniff test.

Hey did you go to the William Shatner school of acting??? Also not even bothering to check with Tesla about the actual problem and cost and claiming it is $17,000 based on some internet forums you read is just nonsense. How can you comment on the cost and how Tesla makes repairs if you never even talked to Tesla? Having said that Rich's guys will definitely be able to fix the car, but you never even gave Tesla a chance before jumping to conclusions and then basing repair decisions on internet forum posts instead of just flat-bedding the car to Tesla. Funny getting the car to Tesla is some insurmountable problem which is on;ly a few hours away, but getting it to FL to Rich's shop - well hey that's no big deal we just ship it.

However, it didn't come with the "totally overexaggerated but completely undeserved sense of self-righteousness" option. Might be why it has lasted so long...

I am not sure quite how much recycling of lithium batteries is done- making safe may be about all, When you think of the environmental costs of mining the Lithium and cobalt and transporting it around the world to the battery manufacturers and car makers I am not overly sure how green this all is. And you still have to generate the electricity somehow. I think the greenest car you can have is the one you've already got and which has a life of 20 years or more.

Yep... I had an Escape hybrid a few years back. After the hybrid drive took a 💩, it was going to cost me about $14,000 to have it repaired! The factory wouldn’t pay and I had to do a voluntary repo since I couldn’t just 💩 $14,000 out of my butt. The dealer threatened to garnish my wages so I was forced to claim chapter 7... never again will I mess with anything non combustion.

I think the "right to repair" policy to be approved soon will have a boom effect on those Tesla after-market service centers popping up and yes true enough battery repairs can just be around $1000 or so. When this happens, the demand for cheaper 2nd hand Teslas will hit the ceiling.

Like all appliances nowadays they are disposable for the simplest reasons. Congratulations to Tessa they have managed to make cars disposable also how is that good for the environment. Let’s not forget where the raw material comes from to make batteries. They have to mind those minerals from the earth.

Would have liked to buy this one but bought a much cheaper Hyundai IONIQ 5. FYI, IONIQ 5 vs TESLA MODEL Y... : Tesla great job, max speed, range especially leveraging its shape and weight. Still prefer, being in Europe, comfort. 99% of my trips are within 200kms one way. With the Hyundai IONIQ 5, I do look forward to ventilated seats, Android Auto, the roomy and comfortable interior, and HUD. Also like reclining seats with foot rest and reclining console for arms rest, all electronic aids especially against collisions, automated parking (Executive version), blind spot cams on dashboard when turning, V2L, sun shades integrated in back doors, electric sunroof shade, wide space available inside with good visibility through the back window etc. And the obviously efficient 400V to 800V internal battery inverter for fast charging. Also 5 year car warranty illimited kms (Max 80 000 for Tesla... Reliability issues?), and 8 year battery warranty (same as Tesla). Comment by Park Shawn translating from Korean to English this video : eefrom.info/limo/qImlpaunxLaVzZ4/video Ionic 5 LR and Model Y LR both have similar spec including weight, battery sizes. Details can be found on google. Here are some highlights from the conclusion they brought up at the end of the video. 1. Both car's AVG speed were about 100KM/h (Highway drive) 2. Both car's A/C and other convenience functions(like Highway drive assistance for Ionic 5, Auto Pilot for Model Y and etc.) were always on during the test. 3. 4 drivers drove about 100km per person and checked the remaining battery at designated location. 4. Both car have shown slightly poor battery performance than usual because of the weather condition (rain) 5. By just looking at the specification, Model Y can drive 141km more than Ionic 5. However the actual drive test have shown that the difference were only about 60~70km. This experiment have shown that IONIC 5's driving range is little longer than what Hyundai advertised. 6. They have concluded that both Ionic 5 and Model Y can drive from Seoul to Busan. The distance between those two cities are about 350km. Hope this helps.

What are the odds that Hoovies gets a battery issue with a model S ? It really looks staged . You can get that error even if the coolant level is low. What a great opportunity for him to involve other guys like the electrified garage and came up with some new episodes.

And now Imagine how it will be when tesla makes the batteries structural components of the chassis. Not only could a repair be extremely difficult but also would the replacement be almost impossible. In other words: from "hey we don't repair your battery you have to get a new battery for 20k" it would escalate to "Hey, you have a problem with your battery: get a new car for 90k". I just hope before that happens, there will be a right to repair act to avoid such situataions.

Too many cells have failed in your latest hoopty. The batteries are in a series-parallel configuration. This has evolved over time. Cells fail. This is a fact of life for the current battery technology. The current battery technology is lithium-ion. In extreme cases- the cells can catch fire. The update was likely made because of previous issues that made the evening news when cars caught fire. Newer Tesla's have 4 packs of 4000+ batteries. It's not a simple matter to replace a single cell. They are all glued together with the heating/cooling coils wound between the cells to improve efficiency (shortening charging times- and prolonging life in winter driving). There are some fairly good teardown videos on the Munro youtube channel.

We used to be the upstart country that was ahead of everyone. Now we're feeding the cigar smoking oil Baron? Really? Tesla's built in the U.S. Fkn A. man! Don't forget that. Also, the future of electric cars is electric car battery changing stations that will change out all of your batteries in 5 minutes for a fee. Green convince for a few $$. Those solar "filling stations" will also feed the grid with electricity, not take it away.
