"Here're the TMC post and the decision, if anyone's curious. $TSLA's response is indeed fascinating, they basically left their attorneys standing with their dicks in their hands by putting all of that in writing."

"Tesla is not singling this customer out or refusing to replace his specific touchscreen for some reason. Rather, this is our position company-wide based on the well-researched determination that the condition is not a manufacturing defect..." (1/3)
