I was laughing pretty hard watching this video...but he brings up some serious and interesting points...specifically who owns your cars configuration?
In this case Tesla downgraded battery output to supposedly extend battery life, but allegedly it was really to reduce their liability.
So when we purchase a vehicle are we really guaranteed the parameters that were in place when we took delivery will remain that way? For how long? It's obviously not just Tesla pulling this maneuver...recently FCA made a change to the ecodiesel that has owners in a rage...and I think it's been going on for quite a while by all manufacturers. If they sense they have a problem, just back off the horsepower or whatever the parameter may be. Should there be consumer protection put in place to stop this kind of "update-downgrades" or is it better to reduce power if it reduces fires etc.?
