    Lets be honest people. Uploading a video to youtube showing a bunch of issues is ment to hurt Tesla not help others. If u want to help you send that same video to Tesla HQ, SC, Tesla delivery specialists, management, Elon , you name it. Im sure the company has some bad employees here and there that delivered bad cars for multiple reasons, and it will still happen. But To upload to youtube for the whole world to see is to hurt the company period. If anyone thinks Tesla will be more careful next time because people upload stuff to youtube you are wrong. Tesla is a company that is doing its best allready but is not perfect, and not everyone working there is perfect either. Its a young company that needs help, not blind praise or fanboism but just help. Not A-holes trying to hurt it and a bunch of idiots saying its great to see this on youtube to help others. Yeah right. rant over

    You can't stop people from uploading but as much as I defend Tesla's reputation, I noticed that they respond to media very well. So, it can surely escalate the fit and finish process

    I also agree that people who think that all these videos and negative articles are forcing Tesla to do something they won't originally do are wrong. Tesla would have solved these issues regardless of angry owners or bad media. They are a company with a goal and don't need a person to tell them what to do.
    I think people don't understand the scale of work that Tesla is doing. Not surprising since I have read many opinions who think FWD are unnecessary. It's hard to appreciate growing problems of something you don't think was necessary. Too strong bias to overcome in a short period of time. Few people have unrealistic standards. They expect something of this complexity and originality to come out of door with no problems. First mistake. Then when a problem is discovered, they expect Tesla to solve it immediately and till then they keep on posting their opinion as to how badly Tesla is doing. Second mistake.
    Whatever people and media do, Tesla will keep on heading towards its goal.
    Still, people should do whatever they believe in. It's a free world and I am wrong many times.

    Ankit - why haven't you reserved your Model 3 yet?

    Looks like you don't share Elon's vision?. Don't you want an young innovative green company led by a visionary not succeed?

    Inspired by your ramblings here I bought a S and reserved a 3.

    Now I am disappointed you are not supporting through your wallet.

    I don't need a car now. I don't drive one. I will like to buy a Tesla when I need one. Also, you are a NRI. You surely might understand that Model 3 will cost much more than $35000 here and what that kind of money means here.

    I don't see the need for the sarcasm and to make it personal. Not everyone can afford these cars.

    Posting problems on a forum we all know they check and the media checks is one thing. Posting a video on youtube wanting it to go viral is very different.

    Tesla shouldn't be giving these long waiting loyal customers cars with such pathetic quality issues. Tesla deserves it.
