    I know several folks with them. The president of my company has had several different models. He got a X when they first came out and it definitely had some issues and he finally returned it, he bought another one a few years later though. He did sell it because he enjoys the S better. His daughter drives a 3 and his dad has a X Plaid. His wife is on the list for a Rivian SUV.

    Several other employees at my company have various models.

    A good friend of mine has a new 3 Performance, he loves his.

    I have a buddy with one who loves goosing it around when you ride in it. I admit it's faster than any gas engine vehicle I've ever driven and I've worked on cars for 25 years and have been behind the wheel of many porsches and all kinds of American muscle. The reality is, it does take a while to charge and it kinda rides like crap in the back. The ride is jouncy from so much weight under the back seat.

    His also needed an update because a coolant pump behind the glove box was cycling every ten minutes or so while completely shut off and was draining a good 20 miles of range as it sat a while. They're not for me but I did go with a hybrid. Took me a year and 3 months to get my Maverick in from Ford. I'm not a big truck guy and I don't tow or haul so it suits me. Also no charging.

    As a lifelong mechanic some tech bugs me because it is so overdone and unnecessary. IMO the market will right itself. Even if they keep pushing ev tech consumers will push back once the free ride is up and replacement battery costs hit them like a sledgehammer. That's why I paid for the extended warranty on my hybrid. It all has it's place but I prefer gas power and that's not going away for decades.

    If I paid the price a tesla and had to return it, I certainly wouldn't buy another.

    He enjoys the tech stuff and is okay with being a tester if necessary.

    I remember hearing Rush Limbaugh A LONG time ago talk about how expensive flat screen TVs were. He said he had the money and was okay with being a tester knowing that the more rich people that did it would bring the technology price down so that others could enjoy the tech as well.
