While doing research (for buying a TV) with the online version of Consumer Reports, I was invited (more like being nagged) to participate in their Spring 2020 Survey. I am a long-time subscriber and have always completed these surveys. Aside from wanting to know about my microwave oven and my dishwashing machine, I was asked about the ownership of my 2015 Model S.
The questions involved the usual. How many miles? Which equipment caused problems? How much spent on maintenance? You get the idea. I was also asked about my satisfaction with the vehicle. Tesla has always ranked the highest when it comes to ownership satisfaction (and deservedly so).
As has been the case since I purchased my Model S, I answered forthrightly. I have driven 57,000 miles with no major repairs and with little spent on maintenance. I was stunned when presented with the final question for the survey:
Please click 'somewhat satisfied' from the following responses.
WHAT KIND OF STUPID "QUESTION" IS THIS??? Consumer Reports is TELLING me how to answer? Were they trying to "force" a survey reply for me to (falsely) indicate something other than being very or completely satisfied with my 2015 Tesla Model S? OBTW, I didn't do as instructed - I clicked on "Completely Satisfied."
To prove my point, here is a link to my Dropbox of a screen grab in PDF format of that question.
I am curious to know if other Tesla owners who are Consumer Reports subscribers will see the same.
