    While I really like and admire the Tesla Model S, there's work yet to do. I can't go along with this.

    There is ALWAYS "work yet to do" on any vehicle made. But I still "go along with it" because other makes and models have even MORE work yet to do in my opinion.

    Thats like saying that the cellphone isn't better than the room full of pagers that it's in. Tech wise, what car even compares?

    There's an easy answer and then there's the [insert vaporware here] answer.

    Remember all those iPhone killers from Blackberry and Palm?

    Great to see Tesla in the top spot, yet again!

    However, this list makes me a bit skeptical of their results because they give the Ram 1500 a "top pick" for the truck category. They can't have tested their vehicles very thoroughly; We have a Ram for our work vehicle and it has been waiting months to get parts for the malfunctioning heater (in the middle of a northern Canadian winter)! Latest estimate is a Spring arrival. Unacceptable for a mass-market vehicle! Are they hand-building the parts in some rural eastern-European village then forwarding them via bike messenger?! This is 2014! You can circumnavigate the globe how many times over the course of a month?! /rant

    From the poster's title I assumed they were totally kidding and had a good chuckle

    All kinds of vehicles catch fire, but people only seem to care when it's a Tesla. I....guess.....that's something positive, right? :confused:
