Has someone already shared the YouTube video of the guy who repairs his own Tesla? He bought three $70 parts from someone in a forum in order to fix his door handle when Tesla wanted $1,000 for the assembly.

I think my door handle was $10...

Shouty complains about plastic door handles even on luxury cars. Do you really want metal door handles in the summer?

As long as service centers keep up with sales, that should be adequate. According to this, Tesla sold 452,833 cars between 3rd quarter 2015 to 4th quarter 2018, so if they have 4.4 times as many service centers by the time they sell their two-millionth car, why wouldn't that be adequate?
