Knock yourself out.

Maintenance costs for a Tesla Model S over five years were at most $2,800 (if drivers don’t use the pre-paid maintenance package) as of 2017 while a Mercedes-Benz S-Class racks up $18,000 in maintenance bills and the BMW 7 Series costs about $17,000 over the same period, according to an analysis by a self-described Tesla enthusiast and “data geek.”

He's as full of shit as you are.

You think $11,074.71 CAD for brakes is cheap and at 5 years it's new battery time.

$11,000 brake job and yes like all vehicles Tesla brakes should be rebuilt at 200K but they cost 10X more.

While the average car engine is only designed to last about 200,000 miles, the average semi engine will go approximately 1,000,000 miles. 75 percent of American communities depend solely on truck drivers to deliver goods and services.Feb 23, 2016

By all means let his compare Tesla to tractor trailers.

If only white people face discrimination and climate change is a hoax then that makes perfect sense

Of course because Teslas never need brake jobs and no ICE can run longer.

Evs in general never need brake jobs.

You seem to use Tesla to mean all EVs the way some people used to use the word Hoover to mean vaccum cleaner.

Really? Apparently it's problematic with Tesla.

I use Hoover to describe the Winnipeg Blue Bombers because they suck. I never use it to describe a vacuum because I'm not British.

Certainly older gasses could clock high mileage but those days are long gone. Planned obsolescence and made in China parts quality have seen to that.

That's hilarious. Ford and Honda engines made in Canada are assembled with Chinese parts?

Tesla engines go further for cheaper

sorry if that conflicts with your world view

Cadillac ATS engine $6,700 USD probably at least that much again in labor to swap it in if you could find anyone who would do it for you - wehich you couldn't

You would need 4 of them to get to one million?

More than that car cost new just in engines to get to a million.

How about Cat converters? What would that cost you on a sport caddy? $5000 every 100K or so?

Replacement engine for Jag Type F (a far more apt comparison to a Tesla S)

$36,403 USD

Another $30K in labour?

You would need at least 5 of them to get to one million
