    Was just going through the electronic paperwork (Ontario) when I came across this statement which gave me pause:

    I'll e-mail them tomorrow about this, but wondering what other Ontarians think this means.

    It's standard wording:

    OMVIC - Standards of Business Practice

    Sounds like this is an attempt by their lawyers to establish the minimum possible legal liability.

    Should have also mentioned that it appears Tesla's opted out of that with this wording which is also in the contract:

    Yes, that's true. But I have to admit to being a bit taken aback when I saw this language in the paperwork.

    Things like OMVIC and CAMVAP were put in place to help people who were having trouble with warranty claims, "lemons" and so forth. Everyone, and I'm sure you'd agree, Doug, says that Tesla's handling of their customers and dealing with issues/problems is second to none. I'm pretty confident of that myself. However, even manufacturers with less than stellar claims handling records are participants in these programs, so I wonder what's up with Tesla and why they are specifically and in legal terms backing away from these programs.

    There might be some significant cost involved in joining up with the program. Also Tesla likes to do things "their way" and don't buy into the established dealer model, etc.

    Just to circle back, I heard from Tesla and the "As-Is" thing is a mistake and will be removed from the final contract.
