...Nobody can “officially” fix a bent Tesla except Tesla, and they generally won’t do it because they claim that once the car has been in any real accident, it’s not economical to fix it in a safe manner.
In fact, they turn off the computer so you can’t use it anymore.
The vandal inside me is salivating...
Since last Friday around here they have gone up $.70 a gal. This will only cascade threw out our economy and ALL of us will be pinched except the stupid rich like Biden, Pelosi and so on.I drove to town this morning and gasoline prices are no higher than they were last week.
I expect that to unfortunately change in the next couple days.
Years ago I worked for Progressive Ins, we had a adjuster do a estimate on one of these electric vehicles and didn't know the batteries/casing had been compromised and they touched the car and lost most of a hand to the acid that they got on them. Nation wide we got me protocols and heavy rubber equipment to do inspections on them. This individual was put on permanent disability from the company and retired. Screw electric vehicles! Not to mention all the pollution created in the mining and manufacturing of the batteries in poop hole 2/3rd world nations.Just be careful, because once you light one up they can’t be extinguished.
They pretty much must burn themselves out while the fire department pours thousands of gallons of water on the hotspot.
If you hit the Tesla with your Ford pick up truck and it jams the doors closed? The people inside could burn to death even though they were air-bagged safely.
It all depends on whether the battery compartments were damaged in the accident. If it ruptures the cooling system and the liquid runs out, the batteries can overheat and catch fire by themselves.
Fortunately the battery compartment is very protected.
Unfortunately the human beings sit right on top of it.
For more fun go look up a channel called Rich Rebuilds on YouTube. This is an engineer with a repair shop, who buys smacked up Teslas and does different things with them. I think he put a LS v8 into a Tesla.
I think he figured out how to hack the computers so you can make the things run, but not everything.
They’re thinking that Californica would be a great place to move to. They don’t understand the problems down there at all.
They only see the attractive marketing.
It all looks so lovely that they can’t quite believe me when I tell them about the murder and suicide rate in places like Los Angelsleaze.
That data is just nowhere on their feed.
I'm just waiting for it all to burn down.
Nothing is going to change until it does.
It's going to hurt. it's going to be painful.
But, it's what is needed.
Stop kicking the can down the road already and get on with it.
