How many of you have actually driven a Tesla and still don't like the vehicles and/or the company?

I’ve been a passenger and it drive nice, it’s not my style with charging and such but I have a few family members with them. Personally I will stick with fuel because that is what “wins”

Not a Tesla hater and I’ve never driven one, but I’ve ridden in one and it was awesome.

Ridden in one. But still makes zero sense in the current market as anything other than a novelty, if you're considering functional bang for the buck. If you want a novelty item that has some very cool features, go for it. But they don't tick any boxes for me. The range issue with EVs is still a huge problem for anyone living in a state like Texas where things are often very far apart.

Imagine you drove an EV in California when they were shutting down the power grid because of wind...

My old boss had one. It is crazy how quick that thing is. I will reserve all judgement until we have solid statistics on battery life.

My coworker has one in Southern California and commutes an hour each way. Hasn’t had any problems yet.

My neighbor in Texas just bought his second one and drives it to work everyday but has other vehicles for traveling distances.

I wouldn’t say it’s a “novelty” but there are questions about the practicality of EVs for sure, especially if it’s your only vehicle or you plan on taking it long distances. If you have the money and want to make it work, it can work.

The auto drive function is amazing. We were going 65 pretty much letting the car drive. If you click twice on the turn signal, the auto pilot changes lanes. IMO, the car is years ahead of gas vehicles.

I almost hit one coming around the corner too fast today. Never been in one but they seem alright. I would never own one though

I like the concept of an EV, but the vehicles available now don’t fit my needs. As far as Tesla, ridden in them and they seem great. Only thing that worries me are reports about how long parts/service take. I’d have to do more research.

Imagine if some jack wagon is going too fast around a corner and swipes you and it takes six months to fix...

I went to San Diego this summer and every Uber I took was a Tesla. They love em on the left coast. I thought they were all sweet cars. The screens on those things look like a 24” TV. I’d own one if I could but don’t think they make trucks??

I’m in the fossil fuel business, so I hate them.

I will say the technology in them is fresh and good. Electric is the way of the future like it or not. We now have electric frac spreads in the field, and the reliability and simplicity makes for a smaller crew, less noise, less problems, and also allows us to do a few things we couldn’t do with a diesel spread. We do however power it with a NG turbine generator. It will be years and years before the electric vehicles come around full circle, but it probably will happen. 12 years ago I was told an electric frac spread was being built, I laughed. Now there are three different companies utilizing them.

One of the best looking and most well thought out cars I have seen. We have kicked around tbe idea of buying one.
