So my Infiniti G37 is on its last legs and I'm looking for a new car. I just test drove the Model S and am extremely impressed. I'd like to get it but I'm getting a lot of negative feedback from family. Not that any of them own a Tesla but my wife says it's a silly car because we can't drive all the way from Toronto to New York. My father (a car buff) says the Model S is an unproven go-cart (he did test drive it). He asked me what would happen if I experience an issue with the car when I'm up in cottage country (1.5 hours away from the only service center in Canada). With a gas powered car I'd be able to pull into any local garage but with the Tesla I'd either have to tow the car 1.5 hours to the service center or wait for someone from Tesla to drive up and give me a loner.
How do I address these questions and convince my family I'm not crazy for going all-electric?
