I'm curious to get a sense of how many people on the forum have previously owned a Tesla and how many haven't.

If I were a betting man I'd say there's going to be more non Tesla owners than former owners.

I'm going to say "no" and exclude the refused delivery, even though the bank might disagree. Hah. Fortunately, I did enough research and test drives to save myself future ownership trouble.

A former 2013 Tesla Model S 85 owner here. The only thing I will miss is the Supercharger network and how it's integrated with their navigation. Besides that, the e-tron charges so much faster on an EA station than the S85 on a Supercharger, even before Tesla slowed down the charging to prevent battery fires and warranty claims. I won't miss being QA for Tesla's software or rebooting it just to get climate control to work.

Some more fun questions might be, how many test drove a Tesla and ran away before even considering buying one? Hah.

And then how many Tesla owners looked at anything other than Tesla before ordering one? I know for this one, based on years following the forum, it's a lot.

We looked at a Tesla, and we weren’t impressed. The interior reminded me of our 2014 Toyota Sienna LE with cloth interior...we didn’t even want to test drive one.

I was all over the place when looking to replace my Model S. I test drove a Chevy Bolt, a Kia Niro EV, and both Model 3 Long Range and Performance. There weren't any Toyota RAV4 Primes available or I would have considered that. Even the Niro EV had a better quality interior than the Model S and 3, not to mention superior fit and finish. Then I found out about the crazy discounts on e-trons and it was a done deal.

I had a MS75D, never had any issues with it other than a faulty headlight replaced under warranty. I prefer the look & drive quality of the Tron although its thirsty.
For me its down to the type of driving you do and the availability of charging infrastructure. 97% of the time I'm good with the Tron 50.

I purchased a 2016 Model X, then another one in 2017 for reasons I can't discuss, not kidding. However, the 2nd one had more problems than the original.

In 4+ years I have tolerated Tesla's significant quality and customer care issues despite truly enjoying the features of an EV.

After an accident claimed my 2017 MX in Feb, I just couldn't take the risk on another Tesla, and now have a 2021 e-tron sportsback prestige.

Despite the remarkable improvement in quality, I really miss many of the features in my MX.
