We love our Model S with the exception that in the 4 months we've had the car, it has already had a number of mechanical and electrical issues. To Tesla's credit, they have been been good at fixing. We bought the Model S with the hope that they would avoid the typical new model problems. However, from our experience, that hasn't been the case. We've had problems with the 12 volt battery, the panorama roof (three different issues), the rear windows, seat belts, paint and a few other smaller problems that seem to have resolved themselves probably thru software updates. This week the car was in the service center Monday thru Thursday, we got it back and then today, the next day, something else went wrong. So, despite how much we like the car, we are beginning to wonder if we made a mistake or should have at least waited a few more months for the bugs to shake out.
