That hunger strike began by alleged house owners of Tesla in Norway? Seems it is all lies. A publicity stunt initiated by what seems to be a legislation agency specializing in making class motion lawsuits in opposition to firms for failures filed in autos.
The unique declare was by a bunch of unidentified individuals who imagine that if Elon Musk finds out in regards to the issues they’re having with their Teslas, the scenario will probably be resolved. The web site listed a big group of bugs that they’re supposedly experiencing. Amongst others:
- Car beginning issues in very chilly climates
- Car beginning issues in very popular climates
- creaking sounds
- Impossibility to open the doorways in very chilly climates
- bubbles within the seats
- Autopilot points
- The web within the Tesla is sluggish
- Sounds of mattress when circulating
- issues with lights
- Doorways that open by themselves
- charging issues
- Poor paint high quality
- oxidized supplies
- random reboots
- Batteries that final lower than promised by Tesla
Amongst some others. Nevertheless it seems that this record of issues is strictly the identical as proven on the web site of bilklagera authorized service that seeks to carry collectively individuals in hassle with totally different manufacturers, together with Tesla, to make class motion lawsuits.
Earlier than the web site of the starvation strike linked to this service, however they’ve withdrawn it. possibly after that Electrek found it and uncover the truth behind the alleged joint motion.
The issue isn’t the category motion lawsuit, or authorized declare for failures that automobiles, together with Tesla, might have that haven’t been resolved. The issue is inventing a marketing campaign as severe as a starvation strike as a publicity stunt with out making the motivations behind it clear.
Affirmation biases with Tesla
However behind there’s a drawback that I believe is extra severe, and that’s the affirmation bias that exists with Tesla. Any destructive information, actual or not, is repeated with out additional verification. I actually, on this specific case, have been the sufferer of my very own bias nonetheless proudly owning a automotive of the model.
Affirmation bias is the tendency to extra simply favor, keep in mind, or point out info that confirms our personal beliefs and hypotheses. Consequently, we give disproportionately much less consideration to attainable alternate options.
With Tesla, such a brand new electrical automotive firm, which is so totally different from the overall automobile business, there’s a important quantity of affirmation bias as a result of it inevitably prices us so much to change. Particularly in relation to such a excessive priced product.
