I got into an accident in Oct 2018 and I still do not have my car back yet. It's been almost 3 months. I felt there must be a better way and that perhaps I should have followed some check list for this type of situation. There are check lists for accidents in general but I felt that accident with a tesla is a completely different thing. Maybe you don't agree and I'd like to hear that. But if there is a check list, I'd like to study it before I get back on the road when I get my car back. If there isn't, I feel strongly that one should be formed and advertise on the front page of tesla website.
Anyone know of an existing one that you can point me to? I felt that 3 months can not be an acceptable time frame. I am tired of hearing from everybody and their mother, "oh it's a tesla, that's why". If anything, it's a damn Tesla and Tesla family should not have to go through things harder, if anything, the opposite. If people can get their car back in 3 days, Tesla should do it better. I keep hearing parts is to blame. Well, then why is tesla pumping out cars if they can't supply the 1% the damn parts when they need it. It's frustrating as hell because when insurance company stop supplying you with a rental after 20 days, the 2+ months without a car can drive you nuts.
I don't want driving a Tesla to be a liability. I want to feel that driving a Tesla gives me an edge.
