    Need Help Convincing Spouse To Buy

    She was the first to bring up the fact that if I get it, she will build resentment, and if I get a different car, I will build resentment. It's certainly a tough situation... :( Getting a Tesla has been my dream since 2012 though... so it's difficult unravelling all of that and buying a...

    Bahahahah right you are, right you are. I definitely plan on bringing up the point that there are a good number of CEOs who aren't testaments of human decency/character.

    Hmmm this could be an interesting point. I'm still worried her reaction of having it in the driveway would go off, but we'll see if this talking point helps. Thank you!

    I agree wholeheartedly here. I'm hoping to talk more with her about her ideals here and there and try to find the roots!

    Bahahaha this one made me chuckle. You're not wrong at all!!! We actually talked about this a little and I plan on bringing it up again. Some CEOs are nice and do things with well-meaning in their plans, but most big company CEOs I have looked into so far have some dirt on them that isn't good...

    This is a really good point I didn't ponder until now, and I agree with your view on this. I was reading a summary of Elon Musk's life last night, the good, the bad, and the ugly of it. I came to the conclusion he can be a terrible person, but he also makes Tesla win again and again in moving...

    Need Help Convincing Spouse To Buy

    The idea of buying a different EV is tough for me because it's been my dream since 2012. I have so much emotion behind all of the objective reasons why a Tesla is my dream car :( BUT I am open to the idea, and did a rudimentary search of other like-priced EVs last night at work on my off time...

    This is a very good point, and better said than what I tried to tell her. I have tried to tell her Tesla is an entire company, not just one man. But I will certainly look up the Tesla team and try to learn the root idea behind her reasoning!

    Bahahaha I love your reply, the car DEFINITELY speaks for itself for being an amazing car as soon as you get a test drive. Sadly, she already got a test drive several years ago, so I can't use the magic of launching a Tesla car from 0 to 60 to help sway her.

    I plan to reiterate this point to her a couple of times because I believe it's a huge selling factor that is whole objective. Thank you!

    Need Help Convincing Spouse To Buy

    The short of it is my spouse loves everything about the Tesla cars, BUT she absolutely can't stand Elon Musk, his business practices, personal beliefs, how he treats his employees, lack of charity work, and global actions. She doesn't want to even have a Tesla car be in our driveway. She hates...
