Humm did not see anything about having to replace batteries after a certain life ? ?

I think the warranty is for 8 years - so that means 1 month after 8 years the batteries would completely die = you gatta trash the whole car <- no mention either of replacing the batteries.

Looking at the savings -vs- the cost of the Tesla . There is no way in h3ll that you would ever break even before this drop dead 8 year period.

Tesla does point out that you start saving from day one <-- that is true.
