    Volkswagen to Overtake Tesla’s Battery Electric Vehicle Sales Crown by 2024, Finds Bloomberg Intelligence

    We were already discussing how Tesla advertises this. I said this few years back that companies that are in the business for a long time will outpace Tesla. You cant stay leader if you release half finished products just because you are seeking attention. Things catch up fast. Dog didn’t catch...

    The same investment companies that said he can buy Twitter in a heartbeat? The way that deal is going, as usual, he will ask government to help him. That guy goes from one attention seeking adventure (remember that “I can solve world hunger?”) to another. Things will catch up with him and...

    Satisfaction? When people buy trend they are satisfied even if they parked a car in garage and never drove it, just so their neighbor can see it. They don’t have auto pilot? Why would they? Maybe they want to sell product that won’t slam into fire truck in front just because.

    Tesla is a trend. Trends don’t last unless your product moves to quality realm. Difference between Schmidt and Musk is that Schmidt tried to hide what they did. They didn’t want scandal. Musk wants scandal. He invents one because he cannot help himself. If VW or GM had issues with those so...

    Hmm I owned multiple, more reliable than Toyota I owned. The thing is, each company has models that are really good or could be really bad. But I yet to sit in Tesla that has basic things properly sorted out. And that is just beginning. Musk is behaving worse than my 3yo and with his temper...

    Volkswagen to Overtake Tesla’s Battery Electric Vehicle Sales Crown by 2024, Finds Bloomberg Intelligence

    ID4 PRo will probably end up in our garage. A good vehicle, unlike Tesla, has all screws properly torqued or not missing any. It would replace our Tiguan, so we would gain in space for sure, built quality is same, and our Tiguan looks pretty much new after 11 years.

    What are you working on today?

BMW is all about weight distribution anything related to front differential, oil pan, is major PITA. Axle...

    Why so Expensive?

    A. I already posted prices about brakes. B. My minivan had more labor intensive calipers and smaller brakes than my VW and BMW. You have alot of assumptions here.

    J.D. Power Initial Vehicle Quality 2022 Rankings

    Buick? My friend left states over the summer and left behind 2012 Buick Enclave, which I fire up occasionally and drive until he comes back. Every time I get in (car has 110k), I think some disease attacked material. And he is serious germaphobe.
