Another person posted this on the forum about the dash rebooting often in his brand new car.
"I expected a new car has trouble free for few years, not less than a month."
This was my response:
That is usually true for mechanical devices. However that is often not the case with digital electronic devices. If there is an electrical or software glitch it will show up within the first month. This is very surprising to a first time Tesla owner. We were all use to thinking about our cars as be only a mechanical device with only a few electrical parts. Actually Tesla's are mostly a digital electrical device. The old expectations do not hold true any more. Fortunately they are easier to diagnose and repair compared to only mechanical cars. Mechanical cars may not have many problems for the first 3 to 4 years but when they do repairs are costly and out of warranty.
I was wonder what other thought of my perspective?
