We're fairly deep into our exploration of ordering an M3 LR. We still have some reservations related to various threads concerning manufacture defects. But here's the real issue holding us up right now. I saw a couple of articles about run-away acceleration and other speed control problems. So I looked at the NHTSA site and found about 12 complaints for 2019 cars and another 12 on 2020 cars. That in itself isn't a cause for serious concern. But what is of concern is the lack of Tesla's cooperation (reported in the press) with the investigation and, in the absence of a NTHSA ruling what does it mean? My understanding is that Tesla has data on everything that happens in the million cars on the road. If that's right and they are not helping the NHTSA investigators determine user error vs manufacture flaw why is that? I won't go into the specifics of the cases here but there are some that involved crashes (no lives lost), some that could have involved crashes if the driver hadn't been alert and some were at high speeds (e.g. unexpected, unneeded braking) and some in slow speed turns or parking lot situations. So, questions: 1. Anyone here know anything about these cases or have had any similar situations where there was sudden unexpected acceleration or deceleration? 2. Any insights on why Tesla might not be cooperating other than the obvious concern above? 3. Any other related thoughts on the subject? Thanks, potential & otherwise positively inclined owner and forum newbie.
