Consumer Reports just posted an article online a short while ago: Consumer Reports' Tesla Model S Has More than Its Share of Problems - Consumer Reports News The article is behind a paywall but is more positive than the title would lead you to believe; the article is pretty balanced, and most of the issues are things we've discussed here and they mention how pro-active Tesla has been about minor issues. Nonetheless some will undoubtedly latch on to the negative title. First paragraph: "A revolutionary car from an innovative automaker, the Tesla Model S has garnered much attention for its accomplishments as a ground-breaking, 21st-century car. For its impressive performance in our tests, strong safety marks, and decent reliability so far, the Model S earned Consumer Reports’ recommendation. But over the last 15,743 miles, our test car has developed many minor problems that merit some reflection." .... "Given the number of bits and pieces Tesla has replaced on our car, it might be tempting to guess that its reliability score will go down. The reality is, it might—depending on the frequency and severity of problems reported by our subscribers and whether they show that reliability is below average. Bear in mind that the experiences with our test cars are purely anecdotal and never factor into our reliability ratings. After all, it's a sample size of one. Along with the rest of the motoring world, we anxiously await the conclusions of our latest reliability analysis due this fall."
