While some of your OP is informative, you made a lot of assumptions and unfounded assertions. You also counseled that patience is the best route. Some of us disagree with that axiom and feel that by giving voice to our frustrations we can force Tesla into change.Patience may be for the meek - but rest of us have better things to do and just get on with our lives.
The purpose of this topic was to try help folks understand what was going on with updates - you know helping the community and all that - sadly its now full of useless ranting, thanks for nothing.
While the price of a Tesla I feel is relative to the service I get, I do feel that some of the service at this price point is lacking. I will not throw my hands up and say "oh well, I'll wait quietly," I will raise my voice and be heard and hopefully push Tesla into a more transparent operation so that my next car can be Tesla, and the one after that, because they remain the best EV. The only way they remain the best is by evolving not just their technology, but the culture of their company.
