"Skirt the edge of a lot of them for years" thanks EricYup. Rich is a space to watch, especially now that he is unlocking Supercharging capabilities and providing hardware and software updates outside of any Tesla approved program. I think Tesla's loophole for being able to void all warranties on the vehicle is that they offer a "recertification," but you can only get it through Tesla and must pay regardless of whether vehicle passes. Now, though, Rich is offering these updates and modifications to Teslas that were never salvaged titles, so they are modifying vehicles with intact warranties.
There's over 100 years of automotive consumer's rights in the United States, and Tesla seems to be skirting the edge of a lot of them. Quite frankly, they've gotten away with far more than any of the Big Three could have just in the last few years. I understand that they are the darling, Cinderella story of the U.S. auto industry, but at some point, they will need to start being held accountable in the same way as the other automakers.
