I know there has been a lot of discussion regarding the ESP lately especially due to the impending price hike...but I am having a hard time seeing the value. Maybe someone can help me see what I am missing. The service plan agreement excludes a lot of items--the battery, the brakes, etc. (I almost wonder if it would have been easier for Tesla to list what the plan DOES cover). I suppose the biggest fear I have would be if the touchscreen or dash display were to fail. However, wouldn't standard car insurance cover this? What would be the point of the ESP? If the car touchscreen went out, insurance would have to step in or the car would basically be a $100k paperweight.
What am I missing here?
