You forgot availability. If If could hop a train to skip my 1.25 hour commute, I'd be on it in a heartbeat. Funding is an issue, but inter-jurisdictional planning is also a major barrier to getting anything useful done. Of course, big pots of Federal money tend to make the locals work together.

The logs were never released. Seriously, where's the download? Instead, a summary chart was released. They have not, meanwhile, released any recordings of Broders several calls to Telsa support to discuss the fluctuating range indicator. Tesla makes nice cars, but they are not being transparent.

The reporter used the car in non-optimal user behavior, and the car failed. This is entirely legitimate reviewing, and Musk called him a liar. '
