He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think this is a violation of some kind on interstate commerce.

    VA just reversed their ruling on this and tesla will be able to sell their cars direct without a dealership.

    they have places in Fl that you can test drive and buy i do believe. they also have service stations around.
    from what i have read on their site they will drop off a loaner and pick up your car to have it serviced.

    they have warranty like no other. i would buy one if i had the money, but i don't. they are still super expensive.
    plus they are not done building their charging station network. i think they need another 2 years to complete.

    the only problem with the charging is that even with the super charger it can take 2 hours to charge the battery. if i am driving on a trip i don't want to wait 2 hours
    before i can leave again. yes it has great range but still you are looking at long delays in charging vs a 2 minute fill up and pay.

    How does forcing consumers to deal through a middleman constitute "protecting the consumer." More like protecting the middleman.

    You are correct that does not and I was wrong. My initial thinking was that a the state wanted a dealer network to have places to service the cars, however that is not the case at all. A few posts back I already acknowledged the mistake.
