Guess EV's just aren't any more dependable than IC vehicles


  Remember how we were told how maintenance costs would be so low on EV's, they would be far more dependable than the highly complicated IC driven vehicles. Folks on a tight budget won't want to buy a Tesla it seems.
 
 Seems in the long run very little difference, three motors and four battery packs to get to 750k miles. No mention of what other issues/repairs came up.  Meanwhile the IC costs half as much up front and far less to maintain, battery packs for an S run in the $14k range, the motors $10k a piece to replace.  Leon used to claim a S could easily run 500k miles with its original batteries and drive units, apparently not.  Lots of folks replacing  drive units with 30-60k miles on them on the Tesla forum.  Lots of IC cars out there run 200k-500k on the original motor,  seems Teslas aren't all that special.  Reality sets in.
