US law isn't clear to me. But I'm originally from Europe. Over there every replacement part comes with the original warranty. If engine blows at 50k, then the warranty starts over, so it will be good...

I'm at 115k mi now. I spend money on maintenance based on a schedule so I do a lot of preventive maintenance and use BMW parts only. If I summed that up, must be a lot of money. Did water pump,...

Wow, I have never seen such move. But Tesla is the best.

Shortened warranty on a problematic part. On the older S people kept replacing drive units under warranty every 60k mi. Looks like Tesla...

It's not about extended warranty. If cars fail likely at around 70-80k mi second owners don't want to pay much for the lease end cars so leasing of a new car becomes expensive hurting sales.

Yeah, safer means higher chance of survival. 30g can be deadly for the elderly while a teenager can tolerate it.

I responded to safety and consumption. Didn't move anything.

I bash Teslas in areas where Elon lies about them. I just provide the truth.
