    Reminds me of my first Fisker Karma test drives of the "production" cars...

    From the WSJ test ride:
    "But the test drive wasn’t free of glitches, underscoring why Tesla is delivering the first Model 3 batches to employees. The test sedan wouldn’t slip into drive from park and needed to be reset, similar to rebooting a computer."

    Yeah. I don't know why they are rushing it. It's just not ready yet.

    Computer/dash/center screen errors are pretty common on Teslas, just require a quick restart, really no big deal. WSJ people are known to be kind of anti-Tesla. The Motor Trent article is very positive.

    They should have done a smaller delivery event with a handful of owners and shown more detail of the car. This event did more damage than good unfortunately.

    I think the masses will see the media reports and not what we say tonight so things might be okay.
