Oh I see, can't spell much so let's use an acronym, ICE. How about STFU?.. I swear you know nothing about how cars work and yet you can't even bring yourself to acknowledge that these $90K Teslas have a design flaw. 5 bursting into flames in the past five months vs. Zero for the Nissan Leaf over it's entire production run is a bit of a problem. Tesla will eventually have to come clean with a design change, not just a software push. Cars do not spontaneously combust, gasoline powered vehicles can catch fire due to damage, improper maintenance but still I don't see them blowing up just sitting by themselves unless they're leaking gas all over. That also requires an ignition source. Combustion 101 fact for you.. Fuel + Air + Spark = go. Have Fuel leaking onto a hot exhaust or having fumes come in contact with a spark, you'll get a fire but again fuel systems have progressed sufficiently to make that a non event unless again, there's damage or improper maintenance. This isn't the movies and they don't somehow mysteriously burst into flames. If there are safety issues, the manufacturers know what will happen if they ignore it. Recalls are expensive but not unprecedented to handle these kinds of problems and that's what's been missing in this because "oh lookie it's an electric car and their safe." Bullshit, I wouldn't buy a Tesla until this is fixed once and for all but then again there are retards with more brains than money so I'll let them bake the design in.
The fact that Musk and his cronies say "there are no problems" doesn't mean that there's not something wrong with these cars and eventually there will be an expensive recall and that's the last thing Tesla wants because of their "no dealer network" way of doing business. Couple that and now the analysts are pushing Tesla down in price ($65 is what is considered "fair" value/share) and you'll see them panic a bit here shortly. Despite that I'm not on the negative side of Tesla, I want them to succeed but this will literally blow up on them if they don't address it soon.
Also, grow up and learn a thing or two about the folks who have classic vehicles, we tend to take better care of them and are well aware of what can go wrong with them more than anybody else. I have a Leaf as well and you know what, it doesn't blow up or catch fire either but it's a PITA for long trips so it's relegated to around town driving or where we know a charging station is. I have faith in it because lots of well trained scientists worked with the engineers to come up with a power system that was reliable and as safe as they can make it. To be honest, the wife drives it and loves it and I know she's safe in it. Me I'll stick to my burping, old fuming and volatile internal combustion engines for my first preference in driving.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm going for a drive in one of my burping, farting, dangerous cars powered by some high grade fuel. If I pass a Tesla I'll be sure to wave the driver down and ask him if he's increased his Fire Hazard Insurance on his house.
