Tesla Reliability

Hmm.. I'll just leave this here:
Reliability problems push Consumer Reports to pull Tesla recommendation - LA Times

Failures with the door handles and charging of the battery I was rather expecting. I'm a bit surprised at the reports of motor failures though.

Ferrari-like performance now matched by Ferrari-like reliability?

Wonder how many defects there are on average. Any component might fail once in a batch of in 100.000 cars, but that would not be significant.

At least I expect Tesla to go all-out to solve the issues, whatever they are.
Or draw a horse on the hood
