As can be read on http://www.tff-forum.de/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1483 (in German), Tesla is treating some early customers really bad. Although it was promised to follow strictly the sequence of initial payment and finalisation of the order, I (reservation #41) realise that many customers here in Switzerland are already driving their cars. They carry sequence numbers like #672, #809 and even #1265. Some ordered only one year ago, while I made my downpayment in early 2010.
To be honest, I am very, very angry about the fact, that nobody at Tesla seems to care about that. Even worse, the Swiss delivery manager said that do not even look at the sequence number when deciding to whom they will deliver next.
Probably everyone in the waiting line should have a serious talk with his (or her) delivery experience manager (har, what a joke: rather a delivery nightmare manager!). If you miss this, they will probably also let you down.
Tesla, you may have a good car. Your staff is beyond everything I met till today and the last word in this case is not spoken yet!
