Less oil. The less the better!
I don’t know what the motivation was for John Broder’s, @NYTimes, review that appears to have flat out lied about the car, but he really needs to be fired as far as I am concerned. I mean, who can trust anything he writes now? He was an idiot to tackle the techno geek engineer types! They document everything!! (I mean, even my little Nissan Leaf is gathering data constantly.) So, I was delighted Tesla could publish the data logs from the writer’s road trip to show he just wasn’t being honest at all.
But his review seems to be having a really positive and unexpected backlash: more positive PR for Tesla. Tesla owners love their new cars so much they were furious with the NYTimes deceptive review of their cars. They have set out on their own road trip using the exact same route the reviewer took to demonstrate that the car is more than capable of the drive. Good for them and all of their live blogging and tweeting.
