    They are playing games
    Getting very very old, if I had another car I wanted I would say good buy
    but, I want Model 3
    but, the games they play give me a VERY bad taste

    Dallas
    None Tesla owner
    April 1, 2016 10:30 AM CST
    2 major delays
    last window was May/June/July show on June 20th, 2018
    Called them on June 20th, said Aug is getting close
    They said, new big invites, should be able to order/config first week of July and get the car in 3 to 6 weeks

    Got the invite EARLY "nice"
    BUT
    The delivery NOW is
    Delivery between Sep. '18 - Nov. '18

    This is BS BS BS BS

    Not a Happy camper

    This can be my first and last Tesla , do NOT like the games the play

    Also, the web page did show 7500 credit

    If I do not get this credit, I will claim fraud

    I can "wait", but want/demand 7500 credit

    I know he pushing the envelope, which is good, but does create harm even death at times

    note my first e car
    I leased I3 for my wife, she loved it, very funky car
    lease was up, I found a very nice used car for $15k
    The only con is the range, but for the city, very nice car
    M3 is nicer , but you need to accept the BS Tesla plays, do not like it
    not a way to run a Co
    4+ rounds of major delays , its a game the play
    long as a get a high quality M3 AND 7500 credit, I will live with this
    but ALL folks ask me, I will tell them you have NO CLUE when you will get the car

    I agree. Tesla’s communication sucks, but the wait is worth it.
    My wife says the car reminds her of when she was younger, and woke up
    In the morning full of hope. You won’t be disappointed.

    Ah well. Other brands are no different.

    I've heard someone from The Netherlands that wanted to purchase a Hyundai Kona EV that he could not make a test-drive before signing a purchase order. Delivery of the car would not be till mid 2019.

    I do feel it will work out, but the key for me is the 7500 credit
    If I lose it, I will be very very upset and claim fraud since web site had 7500 credit
    they play games to max $$$
    but people can/will get harmed on this, ie lose $$$
    I do not like to lose $$$

    I will be a happy camper IF
    I get full 7500 credit
    AND
    M3 is high quality

    If you’re that concerned about the tax credit, perhaps you’re wanting the car for the wrong reason. Regardless, you should read about how the phaseout works so you’ll see there is little to worry about.

    Do you even have the tax liability to take advantage of the full $7500 credit?

    Is this your first post after waiting 2 years for this car?
    And its a $7500 tax credit that does not come from Tesla, its the Federal Government. Talk to Trump and congress about that.

    I'd like to disagree with statements like this. In my country we don't have the 7500$ benefit, but we have other incentives.
    Let me be very clear: I could not afford my Model S without these incentives. I'm already stretching budget now.

    So losing this incentive could very well mean someone will no longer be able to purchase the car.

    If someone wants this car due to environmental benefits and is stretching his budget to get it, I dont see why that would fall into the 'wanting it for the wrong reasons' category.

    Tesla doesn't give out the credit. The Federal Government Does.

    The Federal Government is much easier to work with than Tesla. lol

    If young company teething woes are too much for you to handle, I suggest going with a more established automaker that meets your EV needs.

    Agreed.
    Wow so much drama. We all know pitfalls and rewards of getting in early for a Model 3. If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen....

    Check again, my web page showed the $7500 tax credit + some misc gas credit projection.

    You have expected all along that since you were a day 2 reservation, that you may not get the federal credit. You hated it, but when you did the basic math, you knew things were really iffy.
    Now remember, the fed credit doesn't go from 7500 to zero, there is some stepping down of the credit.

    But most importantly, there are other cars out there. Sure you might want the Model 3, but life is real and sometime you just can't get what you want.

    Look they may be a troll but they do have a point. I am also a May-July reservation holder who could finally configure last night with seemingly everyone else. I am also dissapointed, but not surprised, that it’s another 3-5 months. The lack of communication and constant delays do leave a bad taste in my mouth in the final months of waiting but I am concerned that 3-5 months in Elon time could push past Jan 1 and half my tax credit!

    If the $7.5k credit is not available I'm sure Tesla will allow you to cancel your order and refund your deposit. No need for drama!

    I hate that argument "if you are concerned about the tax credit perhaps you're wanting the car for the wrong reason". Tesla is a Multi-Billion Dollar company they have the intelligence to some degree accurately forecast their # of cars they will ship. I rather they be conservative and say 3750 so people wont be disappointed... but if on June 28, 2018 they say you're going to get 7500 if you configure today... I think that's a lie. You know it, I know it, and They know it...
