Default Tesla trying to squirm out of recall

A Tesla had a MANDATORY recall for the airbags, but Tesla decided it didn't want to support a 3rd party repaired car and refused to carry it out. Fortunately the owner contacted the NHTSA who made Tesla aware they were going to get raked over the coals if they didn't.



Tesla, the Apple of the car industry. smug, overpriced, low quality and laughably bad customer service.

Just wait til you need to replace the dodgey main contactors not in this video but in another this same bloke did ..

Nightmare ....After 8 years you're on your own without a bucket load of cash ..

Tesla are no different to most other car companies when the honeymoon period is over by the looks of it even before the 8 year unlimited miles warranty is exhausted. ..
