            Tesla will never become a mainstream car. The cost of ownership for a 10 year old Tesla would be about $50,000,

            About 1/3 of Gasoline powered cars on the road at any one time is 10 to 15 years old and can be bought by Middle to low class income earners for between $3,000 to $5,000. These are the cars that the average American can own based on average income of the largest majority of wage earners.

            Only about 20 % of families in the USA earn more than $120,000 (EBITDA) Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization.
            So Tesla has a big uphill battle to knock combustion engines off the car market.

            These same Level three used car buyers could never buy a 10 year old Tesla for $30, 000 and get a loan, let alone in two to three years have to buy a Battery pack for a used Tesla at a cost of $15,000 to $20,000. No bank would restructure your loan to now be $50,000.

            It’s for the reasons described above why Tesla will never become a giant automobile MFG. it will always only be for a high end market.

            Also for now the battery packs will sit in bone yards and rot before anyone recycles them. The large amounts of energy it will take to recycle is not worth the materials it will yield.

            As of now the used Dead Tesla Cells would fill a warehouse of about 120,000,000 cubic foot warehouse and growing.

            Also the liability is Deadly. Take for instance that Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E) filed for bankruptcy on January 29.

            This news comes after CEO Geisha Williams stepped down from her position Sunday and just days after Moody’s downgraded PG&E’s credit rating to junk status. So yeah, things aren’t looking too bright for the company,

            So let’s say a Tesla at a super charging station catches fire in two years and burns 5,000 California homes and businesses. It’s not like they don’t catch fire already.

            Whoops, empty deep pockets.

                        I bought a Tesla model S AWD and I regret , Its an electrical nightmare with electrical parts and sensors constantly going out. I can't rely on this car.

                                    Autopilot should only be used to assist not take over. As long as it takes care of the constant micro adjustments I'm all for it! 😁

                                            I think people need realistic expectations when it comes to technology like autopilot.
                                            We are not currently living in an age were true AI exists. We have very complex programmes, yes, but it requires predictable conditions and can't dynamically adapt. If we had that, they'd be androids cleaning the streets and in the army. So of course do not rely on anything but yourself to keep you safe.

Stop putting people's lives at risk and start driving. Big deal it didn't detect traffic. But you did. So what. They don't sell the Tesla cause it drives your self. Matter if fact autopilot feature is actually almost entirely off in some countries stores like Germany! Itll only come on for a few short moments.
