Thoughts about Tesla vehicles?

Anybody own a Tesla vehicle? I just started working for Tesla and was wondering if people see them around in their area. I myself living right down the road from the plant see them everywhere.

Would you consider buying an S, 3, or X? I understand their expensive but maybe this company is pushing the all electric vehicle forward.

Not being a smart ass here - just curious.
Less than 10% battery degradation over 160,000 miles.

I had no idea so many rich people were on here. If you have that much money don't you feel like a loser posting on a message board? You should.

I bought a $37k Nissan Leaf. With $7500 in federal incentives and $5000 in Colorado incentives, it's a $20k car.

And yeah, many of the Teslas are pretty pricey. But they're not that much crazier than a lot of other cars you don't think much about (Lexus, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, etc.).

If I didn't have kids I'd probably have one. Since I do, I have other places for the money and the time to fiddle with it and figure it out.

But the thing is, everyone focuses on this, but for 99% of the miles people drive, it really doesn't matter. Our Nissan Leaf gets 150 miles on a charge. You know how many times I've had to charge it anywhere except for home? Zero. My wife has a 20-mile (one-way commute). We plug it in every other day, and that's it. And while it's not a Tesla, the instant torque is still plenty enough to make it more fun to drive than any gas car I've ever owned.

There is a very reasonable argument that you'd be better off just renting a gas car for long road trips and using an e-car for everything else, but even that ignores the fact that you can get just about anywhere in a Tesla as long as you're OK with stopping for a bit every few hours (which most people do anyway, albeit with fewer restrictions.
Last week I stopped by to shoot the shit with my mechanic, who was working on a taxi. I didn't really pay any attention to it until he finished, got in and then the damned thing backed out without making a sound. It kind of freaked me out. Pretty sure it was Leaf. He said the cabbies love 'em.

Obviously I have no experience with them, but considering that 99% of my driving now is within it's fuel range, this might be an option for me in the future.

Are Tesla’s at the point where we know how reliable they are? Cost of repairs, etc?

I think they are slick looking vehicles and fun to drive. I considered a base model last year. Decided against it because they’re still so new.

Instetested inseeing how this company progresses.

Is the drivetrain still only rated to last around 60K miles?

Consumer Reports called the Model S "above average" and the Model 3 "average" in late 2017, though I don't really have a feel for how they had a rating at all for the latter at that point.

Pretty sure that was only on some of the earliest models. They're warranted for 8 years, unlimited miles on the battery and drive units these days.
