I tried calling Tesla a few more times. After 70 minutes on hold, I was disconnected. I sent Tesla sales email and received an automated reply that they only accept emails from people who are expecting delivery. That was enough frustration for me.
The following day, I visited the Tesla store 60 miles away and placed the order in person. The sales clerk typed my information into his computer and it went through, but at a still higher price.
Is working with Tesla always this frustrating?
