Since we made our reservation, I've been thinking about the real-world consequences of owning an electric car. I was an early hybrid owner, and weird stuff came up, usually at inconvenient times. - Since our streets are riddled with potholes, we get our cars' alignment adjusted twice a year. Will a Tesla, with its different weight distribution, need this as well? - What's a polite way to ask to plug in on an overnight trip to the in-laws? - Will the curb weight be comparable to cars its size? - What about windshield cracks if we go for the glass roof? - Anything I should know about rear wheel drive? I've only ever owned pickup trucks with it. - Will the Good to Go toll pass have issues? I'd heard Model S owners need to use motorcycle headlight passes. - Will insurance really go up? When I traded in my hybrid for a brand-new ICE, my rates went down. - When the sides get beaten up by door dings at Costco, can I handle it the same way? This isn't talking myself out of the reservation--we're all in, especially now that a red model has been sighted--just wondering how we first-time EV/Tesla owners can benefit from others' experiences in the real world.
