I've spent the last week obsessing over buying a Model S now that Tesla opened a showroom at our local mall. I've read so much about the car here and in Edmunds excellent year-long test drive (a must read). Yesterday, we took the car for a test drive. All i can say, is that is the most impressive car i have ever driven or seen. Incredible drive, mind-blowing acceleration -- it felt like a lightning bolt shot out of my foot as i floored the car on the beltway. Really it is an engineering marvel. BUT.... While the engineering and technology of the car are best in class, it seems as if the designers and manufacturing of the vehicle have not caught up. Individually, these are really small issues, but collectively they suggest and perhaps prove the point that Tesla is still learning how to design and manufacture cars. Some of this list i gleaned from my reading of posts in Edmunds year-long review and others i observed in the test drive. But to be clear, i would be buy this car yesterday even with the issues i point out below, except i do have one "deal breaker" that is keeping me from ordering the car: NO ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL. I have this feature in my Infiniti Coupe and i use it on every single trip i make. If you have never had a car with ACC you won't understand, but believe me (and you'll see other posts saying the same thing), once you've experienced it you'll never buy a car without it. So until Elon makes this available, i'll be sitting by, watching and waiting with great envy. In the meantime, i hope they address some or all of these issues as well. 1. Carpet color is always black?? Shouldn't the carpets match the interior color. 2. No center console. I know a retrofit is coming 3. No hand holds in front or back seats. Who overlooked this feature. 4. No auto adjustment for easy ingress/egress. My 1992 Lexus automatically moved the seat back and steering wheel up whenever i entered or exited the car. Tesla should as well. 5. No lights in the visors. C'mon. 6. Very limited voice control over car functions. My Tesla test drive companion claimed that voice control only worked with the phone. I know that is not true, but the depth of voice control pales in comparison to most high end cars on the market. 7. Distorted front windshield view at very bottom of glass. I got this from Edmunds and confirmed it during test drive. 8. Lock/unlock doors mechanism only on touchscreen, not on door. Arguably, just a design choice, but an odd one. 9. No rear cupholders. I know a retrofit is coming, but who overlooked this. 10. Occasionally, poor fit and finish. I read about this on Edmunds and confirmed this at the showroom. On some, not all by any means, of the cars, the panels didn't line up exactly. just by looking closely with the naked eye you can see discrepancies in the fit and finish. But again, even with these "issues" I'd buy the car today if it had ACC.
