    I mean if you think about it, how many people do you think they have working on processing refund requests? Probably 2 junior first year finance analysts in the Controller dept, and most certainly not their full time job.

    I have to agree with you on this one. I recently had a customer service issue with Tesla, and getting somebody to be responsive was about a painful as having a tooth pulled. I support the mission of a Tesla, but that experience did give me pause about what life with a Tesla may be like if something goes wrong. I think it is the risk we all take. The Model 3 may be targeted for the masses, but the reality is that they are still going for a smaller audience than most car companies.

    No one said anything about needing it "tomorrow." The fact of the matter is they need to get a handle on this. My friend who was a day 1 order decided to go with the Bolt. It took 2 months and several phone calls to get the refund. This is not acceptable in any way, no matter how much you support the mission. Tesla has a 60 billion market cap, they are in the big leagues now. They need to act like it in all regards. They have moved on to the mass-market mainstream segment of the population who unlike early adopters are not going to be satisfied/excuse/put up with lack of delays such as this and poor communication.
