    • This is one of the better documented stories on a Tesla S P85D, a 6-figure car that bricked itself while on the highway and just instant stopped from mid 2021.  A Tesla Bricking Itself On The Highway Shows EVs Have A N Issue (jalopnik.com) Yet, I am also finding plenty of Tesla current stories on bricking after software update, ram failure, etc. It is across all 4 models even the Platinum have bricked. So Guess Tesla is not as rock solid as expected. OUCH, just found this, a class action lawsuit against Tesla. Seems Tesla is not willing to cover the cost of a failed OTA EMMC flash update. BRICKED TESLA - Is your Tesla Model X or S not working? If your main 17" screen is dead, you may have a case. Interesting, I think the fact that GM took this into account with a hard to get too yes based on the videos you posted @ccap41 switch to get a reset and the Hummer rolling where this option is not in the Tesla shows at least GM realized issues could happen and the need to get it to roll out of the way was much needed.
    • Comparing the Hummer to an Alfa product likely isn't a good thing... I guess we should expect them to be piles for a few years.  Also, not having a fairly easy way to get the vehicle into a tow mode for trailering..? What's that about. I wonder how many other vehicles have the same issue, I've just never come across it (because the vehicles don't brick themselves). 
    • Difference in definitions. Electric motors, batteries, and air suspension aren't new.  But these are totally new designs for all of them... it's a full platform. It's exactly like when the Alfa-Romeo Guilia came out. Everything on that car except the transmission was a new design.  New engine, new electronics, new body, new everything... except the ZF-HP8 transmission.  And that's why it was a problem for FCA. But that same platform has been perfected since 2015 and now rides under the Grand Cherokee and it's largely fine. All manufacturers play fast and loose with the term "all-new".  Is the Integra really all new?  The platform is just a Civic, it just uses the CR-V/Civic engine and transmission, it uses a lot of off the shelf Acura components.  What about the Bronco?  The body was new, sure, but everything under the sheetmetal was lifted from the Ranger and F-150 and they still had issues. The Hummer really is "All new" ... like for real.
    • And don't forget, it's not like ICE cars don't have problems off the factory floor and sometimes major problems and they have been on our roads for well over a century. This, like the YouTube video depicting it, is making a mountain of a molehill, if you ask me.
    • BlEeDiNg EdGe, with a description like that I'd assume you work for GM.  The technology really isn't THAT new. It's still just an electric vehicle with air suspension and a locking differential. Rear wheel steer isn't new either, even for GM.  I can't imagine any regular person buying one of these(or any vehicle) is expecting things to not work, just because it's new.
