Seems like nothing changed there

I like it and well said. Ford does have great suspensions tho.

Typical forum BS. ...

"Battery fires were such a huge issue for General Motors that the company had to issue a mass recall on the Chevy Bolt EV. The recall cost the company over one billion dollars. GM is looking to cut ties with LG following its battery fire issue....

Battery fires were enough to make GM want to abandon its partnership with LG. It seems LG isn’t the only company that is producing EV batteries that can cause fires. According to CNBC, the F-150 Lightning models that are fire risks are powered by SK On batteries. These batteries power several popular electric vehicles, including the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6." What part of this news story is a lie ????. This same news has appeared in other business news articles besides motor biscuit KH. Many RVers own other EV vehicles besides the F 150.

Retired financial/tax accountant and overseas commercial helicopter pilot.

GM and LG continue a partnership to build Ultium batteries.

GM did replace batteries for all Bolt's.

There were less Bolt fires than Tesla's running into parked emergency equipment on the highway.

I own a EV, gasoline, and diesel. I use what makes sense. Please continue to research information from reliable and varied sources.

Tesla doesnt run into anything.

Its the drivers responsiblity to hold steering wheel at all times,

Read the owners manual before driving Tesla.

Sleeping behind the wheel or being drunk then blaming Tesla was the cause in each acident.

Yep. Tesla ADAS is only level 2. As per all the prompts and nags in the system, the driver is always driving. The ADAS is just that. Advanced driver assistance system. Definitely nice to use and will help you avoid accidents but you are always the driver. We use ours every day pretty much 99 percent of the time. It drives us across town or to the next town. All we have to do is tell it where we want to go. It works 9 times out of 10. But that tenth time…[emoticon]. And yes, your supposed to disable it around emergency vehicles and in construction areas.

Lol, and you don’t see anything wrong with equipping the average human being (not to mention the other 49% who are below average, although fortunately very few of them be in a Tesla unless they’re drug dealers…) to have the option to fck off and not pay attention while driving? Hard enough to keep people off their phone in their 1999 Kias….
Never saw this issue coming…that was sarcasm.

I drive better than average, but you can bet your sweet azz if I went and dropped as much as any 2 cars together I’ve ever purchased and it would drive itself I’d test that out!
Prolly pound a 6er of IPAs between here and Spokane and take a short nap!
