I've read the following story:
Interesting, isn't it?
In Germany, the (neutral) "Technical Inspection Authority" determines whether a car is "road-worthy". Moreover, when you buy a car (in Germany :-)), you are the "sole" owner of the car (including all keys and the like).
To me, it sounds very strange that Tesla reserves the right to "switch on the car" (sounds to me as the car seller would keep back the keys). Moreover, in the form
Tesla states explicitly (as far as I understand) that if the car is not road-worthy, it will not service the car (in my understanding, it will not "switch the car on") - to unlock the car is part of the service?
Who decides whether a car is road-worthy (Tesla alone)?
Can someone explain what exactly the term "Tesla-owner" means? To me, it sounds like you acquire "property", but "ownership" remains with Tesla)? The car is "yours", but Tesla can "lock it"?
Moreover, Tesla has no obligation at all to sell parts? What when I need a new rear-mirror? Tesla does a 10k€ "inspection" and then declares the car as not "road-worthy", refuses a repair and locks the car? (in fact, it is not road-worthy, because you are not allowed to drive without rear mirrors) ???
To Elon: an interesting business model: you sell a new car, declare it after one year as no longer "road-worthy" and switch it off. Tesla owners, buy a new one :-)
