I wouldn't trade my Model S for the World, but I can say that everything that could go wrong has went wrong with this car. If Edmunds has listed it as a problem, my car experienced it. If you count the 2 months or so that my car had been in the shop, I would probably have 20 to 30,000 more miles than the 106,000 I currently have. Good Luck to all that own the older version and those that now have the newer upgraded version can thank the likes of me that experienced the pain with the original version! :)
