Tesla is again claiming Devine intervention with the recurring problem of Model 3 bumpers coming off when driven in the rain.
“Watch This Tesla Model 3 Rear Bumper Fly Off After Driving Through Puddle“https://insideevs.com/news/433643/video-tesla-model-3-rear-bumpers-fly-off/
Tesla’s “Goodwill repair” of the bumpers the rain gods keep pulling off of Model 3 is a bit suspect. That the owners above had to sue to even get the “goodwill” scam does not speak well of Tesla’s business ethics.
He claims that labeling warranty repairs as "goodwill" is a way Tesla found to cheat its financial results.
This would happen because warranty costs are included in financial results as "Cost of Revenue," a number that affects gross profit and net income, according to that article. Instead of naming them as such, Tesla would say they are goodwill repairs, so these expenses would appear as "Operating Expenses," which get diluted in the company's results for as long as the car is under warranty.
The article also points out a contradiction: although Tesla claims the repairs are not due to warranty issues, but to goodwill, they are only performed while the cars are under warranty.
