The Roadster owners have served as a real bridge to future owners of the Model S. If it had not been for a Canadian roadster owner assuring me that his RWD does exceptionally well in the snow for example, I probably never would have made a reservation. So I thought it would be useful to have a thread for the Roadster owners to both link to and share their experiences of owning a Roadster that would most relate to future Model S owners. Categories could include such items as:
cost of maintenance beyond the yearly normal stuff
stated vs. actual range
long distance driving/charging on the road
intangibles like smiles/quality of life stuff
why you would buy another car from Tesla
The above are just some suggestions, but share what ever you want. I realize one could just go to the roadster forum and dig up answers to a lot of these question, but thought it would be nice to centralize it a bit. Plus it might help us start a more in depth FAQ that goes beyond what is offered on TM's site.
