    He said Tesla got a 'significant federal subsidy' instead of a DOE loan. There is a difference.

    I posted a comment but not sure if he'll see it. It's often hard to find an e-mail address for these authors to send feedback and it's a video so he's not going to edit that out I bet. I'll see if I can e-mail him. An ok review but I agree, did seem to want to nitpick.

    He did bring up some valid points like wanting to have the keyfob open the charge door but he seemed to have run into issues I've never heard about. Has anyone else had the car stop when going in reverse because they lifted too far off of the seat?

    I think he was trying to get the car to stop on purpose knowing the seat sensor is there. Who lifts their butt while driving? I for one am glad it stops if you get out in drive.

    I agree with most of what he raised regarding the "unfinished" interior.

    In the second video, he does come around to mention that most "annoying" features can be fixed with an OTA update.

    But, not so for the lack of interior storage ...

    Thanks, I have seen many reviews from this guy and he is usually extremely stone-faced so it cracked me up to see him with a tesla grin
