Driving a Tesla has become an infatuation for many. The vehicle’s unmatched performance and integration of cutting edge technology simply captivate consumers. It makes consumers blind or at least oblivious to the price tag and the lack of refined luxury features we have become accustomed to seeing in Mercedes-Benz or BMW vehicles.

However, Tesla manufactured vehicles are just that – vehicles manufactured by Tesla. And all manufactured goods, including those by Tesla, Mercedes Benz, and BMW, have a certain frequency of defects. For some consumers, the infatuation is so deep that they cannot even fathom the thought of suing Tesla to get a refund. However, the lemon law does apply to all including, but not limited to, Teslas!
