Nor can you dismiss others who have other experiences. Let's quit rating each other (or ourselves).
I'm just having a really hard time getting worked up over this issue. Sorry. Every single person here is tech savvy. So not buying all this emotion. There's a lot of convenient manipulation of numbers going on, like 'a few months was expected' but then that isn't factored in to 'a year late!!!'.
And before I get nailed with the 'you don't know what it's like!!!' response, ummm ... three words for you: Signature Model X. You've had more updates in the last MONTH then we've had in in the last year. Yet I'm not hearing about what compensation we're entitled to or potentially pursuing legal action. Because, well, there's that tech savvy thing again.
It's not a contest. Investors also have skin in this game, since perception of the company impacts stock price. And jeebuz, I have to agree that IF you're unhappy, do something about it. I vote for having this thread renamed otherwise so people have fair warning before clicking on it.
Bonnie, sorry. A Model X reservation (or 2012 Model S or whatever) is not an apples to apples comparison. Model X reservations are reservations for a future product. You put down a deposit knowing full well you wouldn't have to pay the full price of the product until it was in your hands. We bought and paid for vehicles with features that are unavailable and have no simple way to back out and forget about the situation.
As I mentioned, I *am* doing something about it and have written this many times. Just because I'm not suing Tesla doesn't mean I'm not doing anything.
As for renaming the thread, if anything it should simply be updated to say "over 7 months" now, although that would make the OP confusing.

I'd buy that if people who AGREED with being upset with delayed release of autopilot were also being told they had a credibility issue - but I just can't find one of those posts. Those are all +1'd, etc. So it appears that 'do you have skin in the game' is only asked of those who disagree.
THAT is a credibility issue. Yes?
That's not really fair, actually. There are no questions about skin in the game or credibility in most cases on either side since it's known one way or another the answer to that question already (previous posts... signatures with lists of Model S........)
Edit: On a side note, it's obvious that you disagree with the feelings expressed by myself and others on this issue... and, as is common among those who disagree, it's worth noting that you are not on our side of this particular fence either. (As in, you don't own a post-autopilot announcement Model S)
