    Tesla continues to stay in the spotlight - be it positive, negative or opinionated.

    I wanted to start a go to spot for our community for adding interesting articles, opinions, local involvement - really, anything.

    This morning, I saw an article about Tesla facing a lawsuit for allegedly violating Wisconsin's lemon laws. What have you seen in your area?

    Besides the showmanship they bring up the fact that many current pro-client laws are there for a reason and supported by the franchise network.

    Lemon laws are a great example. When you have an issues you have a dealer (usually) within a reasonable distance where you can get a loaner, drop your dead horse, get someone to submit paperwork to the manufacturer, etc.

    Not so fast... "The estimated effective cost of $408 a month sure sounds great but, just as with the first consumer lease plan for the Model S, there are a lot of caveats to be aware of. For one thing, the actual monthly payment is $1,012, well over twice the $408 number."
    Tesla's new $408 per month business lease deal for Model S reminds us of last 'revolutionay' deal via Green.Autoblog.com

    Of course... you can drive across and back Norway in one charge. Real countries need something better than a Tesla (like a Hummer 1 or something like that).
