Homelink?
My 14 year old Nissan Maxima has this.

I would bet that 90% of the vehicles owned by us and our clients have HomeLink.

(It looks like this)

Fins, I think the NYT article and Top Gear were purely entertainment. Contrived. Got the Tesla really bad press, and I have read those were both fabricated stories meant to entertain.

I don't mean to say the Tesla is a great car, or a bad car, but keep your mind open.

Why hasn't Top Gear had the same issue with any other manufacturer if they are fabricating stories?

Those are just the two best known examples. There are plenty of other articles out there

Are you sure you aren't thinking of Fisker here?

Fiskeris out of business.


I know 4 people who have Teslas and they are downright evangelical about how great they are.

If you are referring to the New York Times review, while they didn't retract it, the editor admitted there were problems and errors in judgment in the reviewer's usage: [Link: theblaze.com]

What are you referring to when you talk about not fixing problems? All I have see is that Elon Musk (company owner) has said that they know they need to do better in customer service, and they are striving for that.

As to Musk be a dbag, no opinion on that, other than it kind of feels like a Steve Jobs "I know better than everyone else" type of thing. And for all his genius, yes, Steve Jobs was a crazy person.

Fins, I looked up The Blaze publication... Intreresting right-wing rag. BENGHAZZI, 2nd Amnedment, Glenn Beck, Ted Nugent etc. probably a good read for the dudes who are anti enviromentalists and love to "Roll Coal"?

Also the Blaze falsely mentioned Fisker was government funded, not true iot was a privatley held company.

Why did Tesla get the highest award for a manufactured vehicle this last year?

I know a few people (friends and clients) who absolutely love their Teslas... just sayin'

Regarding the "government funded" debate, both Tesla Motors and Fiskar received loans/guarantees from the US Department of Energy, with markedly different outcomes:

Fiskar: Bankruptcy resulting in government loss of $139MM [Link: nbcnews.com]

Tesla: Paid off complete loan of $465MM 9 years early, and as of 2013 was the only American car company not in debt to the government. [Link: businessweek.com]
