'We believe that if Elon Musk is made aware of our troubles, he will solve the situation,' the Norway hunger strike participants and Tesla owners claimed.

Bonus for pure good tsar capitalist syndrome.

This is hilarous and pathetic at the same time.

Musk said Tesla buyers should purchase vehicles “right at the beginning or when production reaches steady state.”

I just love that as a piece of advice. It’s like they’re producing sample after sample after sample and if you can just manage to hold your excitement and wait long enough, then they’re going to scrap all those garbage-quality cars and you can get a freshly baked, high-quality car as soon as they’ve ramped up production (of those cars that no one is supposed to buy yet).

That statement:

  • pretends it’s fine to produce worse quality products some of the time,
  • reads like they basically roll a dice when producing a car and at whatever quality it comes out, well, nothing they can do about it,
  • shoves responsibility to the customer,
  • doesn’t actually tell you when you can buy a Tesla.

I don’t want to know what this means for car safety. Do they not do quality control for that either?

Why would you start a hunger strike for that? Start a payment strike or something, it’s not like you bought those overpriced pieces of shit outright!

A payment strike wouldn’t help at all, since a car loan would be held by a third party. Tesla already has their money in full.

Yeah, the whole thing is just pure comedy.

I honestly though this article was satire.

This could totally have been a piece from the onion.

Musk: stuffing up on popcorn to watch people strave in his name, instead of doing something productive
