Tesla recently increased the price of its Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD) feature to US$15,000, but since last year it has offered a US$199 monthly subscription model to keep the initial cost down considerably. However, to benefit from his latest FSD option, owners must install the latest hardware 3.0 computer, which many cars don’t have, so Tesla won’t be making cars built after 2016. promised to replace the computer for free. Advantages of the FSD package.
However, that free upgrade becomes a paid one for those who opted for the subscription model instead of purchasing the full FSD package. Tesla asked him US$1,500 to replace his old computer with hardware 3.0 silicon, but he has since lowered the price of the upgrade to US$1,000. But that’s still a long way from the free promise of 2016, so one Model 3 owner took Tesla to small claims court in Washington, where the judge claimed “false advertising” on Tesla’s part. For one, he won the lawsuit, for ruling in favor of Ian Jordan.
“In addition, the plaintiff purchased a second Tesla Model 3, relying on the company’s advertisement that all Tesla 3 models come with all the hardware necessary for self-driving.Defendant found that actually installing self-driving features, in violation of Tesla’s false advertising, would cost him $1,106 in additional hardware upgrades.‘ concluded the judge.
Judge Matthew A. Skau also ruled on Jordan in his separate small claims case seeking compensation for a failed media computer in another Model 3. AM radio is lost as the 2nd generation does not have AM radio.
Tesla lost the case for failing to appear, clearly finding the allegations unworthy of justification, and the judge ordered $1,106 USD to upgrade the FSD computer so that Model 3 owners could subscribe to a monthly fee structure. ordered to pay Tesla also claimed that, as a breach of warranty, he had to pay Jordan US$1,657.50 for the unwanted upgrade of his MCU2 media computer in his other car, and compensation for the loss of AM radio resulting from the upgrade. As he has to pay 500 USD.
While Tesla quickly paid the court-ordered amount, and is also facing bogus federal lawsuits promoting Autopilot, Jordan’s lawsuit last week “Failure to meet long-term, ambitious goals is not cheating.,” So I tried to beat the point by not showing up at all, and automatically lost the case.
