Instead of a "no comment" tesla is seriously saying that his family is lying, it's like they want to go bankrupt over this.

Service centers grow rapidly so as the mobile fleet
Not sure what the problem here is.
They'll come to your house or work, or whatever location specified

I have a few nearby, but luckily my car does not require anything
3rd Tesla, with only minor stuff with 1st one, in 2013

My only trouble free BMW was X6M, but i had it barely a year

Yeah, it makes sense that Wall Street is a bunch of morons that just can't see what you do! Especially considering the billions you've made investing in ... wait. That was you, right?

Well in case that wasn't you ...

FYI, Wall St. has never invested in Tesla because it's a well run company - they invested in it for its potential, i.e., patents and technology as well monetizing a market paradigm shift. i.e., unicorns.

Tesla has a lot of IP, a lot of assets, a lot of new capabilities, a lot of networks, a lot of brand equity, and a lot of talent. Even if Tesla doesn't work as a stand-alone business, it's certainly EXTREMELY valuable to others, if only to buy them off the market and/or acquire those new capabilities and assets.

Further, most investors include Tesla as part of a broader portfolio in case it does hit, so that in 20 years when you read those stories about how if you were an early investor in Tesla those shares are worth YUGE $$$, you can think of those nutty wall streeters ... and if it doesn't work it's a capital loss write-off for your winners.

Full disclosure, I'm not a direct Tesla investor, nor have I ever been.

So how many techs do they employ in Arizona with the ONE service center and how long would it take for them to perform this recall
Let's say 10 techs and they can perform 3 per day
That's 30 cars they can handle
If there are say 10000 out of the126,000 owners of model s who need recalls performed in AZ
The last person might have to wait 333 days till his/her car is completed
Much convenient such service very wow

You can't read, can you?
I brought up the mobile service which you conveniently ignored.
Check with your local DMV to see how many of Teslas in AZ. You can name any number and you still gonna be wrong.
Chances are, there aren't many. Otherwise you'd see a lot of stores and service centers opened because of the demand
I'd be surprised if it's more than 2% of the entire Tesla the population
There are so many things to speculate about why picked this?
Lol

You have a 2015 Model S listed in your "garage" on the left side of every post you make. What a fool I am to assume that.

IIHS study shows the Tesla Model S crashes more often than other luxury*cars 

From the National Post

It would seem all of Tesla's driver assist technologies don't actually lower accident rates

 by* CLAYTON SEAMS



According to a study done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Tesla Model S is crashed more frequently than other large luxury cars – and it’s more expensive to repair, to boot.

The study showed that compared with its rivals, the Tesla’s mileage-adjusted claim frequency was 37 per cent higher and that the claim severity was a full 64 per cent higher. This is interesting to hear, considering Tesla boasts a full suite of driver-assist tech including the controversial Autopilot feature that allows hands-free highway driving. That feature has already been involved in a few fatal crashes but is still available on Tesla models.
*
The IIHS also compared more affordable electric cars like the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Bolt, among others. All those cars actually had*lower claim frequencies than their gas counterparts.
The study also found that despite range anxiety, Teslas are driven more kilometers each day than other gas-powered luxury cars – on average, Model S owners drive five extra kilometres per day than other luxury cars, and an additional 20 kilometres a day than other EVs.
