So like most of you guys, I've got my number in line for my model 3 due next year, it seems as though the more I look into things I hear phenomenal things about Tesla as well as horror stories about things like maintenance issues and other nightmares of issues that are having me second guess...at times.....my decision and wanting to know if any current Tesla owners have any big issues with maintenance or any other repair issues. I've read a lot of good things about EV's in general and especially Tesla but hear horror stories about things like software issues preventing autopilot not working and taking months and several thousands of dollars to fix as well as waiting upwards of 6 + months for things like a bumper to be fixed from a small fender bender. Being in southwest Ohio, things are VERY conservative and there are very few Tesla owners that are around so any input from anyone is appreciated. I was at the local EV week show and the 5 Tesla owner's couldn't say enough about them but also didn't have much experience with issues because they just did not own the vehicles for longer than 2-3 years. Thanks for the input!
