elon musk sucks and tesla is poo poo, tesla stans however are the fuckin worst

https://forums.tesla.com/forum/foru...-rear-door-exit

quote:

Just back from New York's Tesla showroom where they have an actual Model 3 to sit in and experience. I reserved one on day one, and am waiting for my email.
Took my wife who liked the car very much except, we were greatly disappointed after finding out that a rear door exit is only possible as long as there is power. It is hard to believe that Tesla would skimp on something as vital as a way to escape after an accident. Imagine sitting in the back next to your baby in their car seat and it happens, you must quickly exit, do you do as they suggest climb out through the trunk after finding the release, break the side glass with the tire iron you always have with you, then, what about your baby, even worse what if you were hit in the back blocking any possible exit that way?.
If they can charge thousands for options, even for the color of the paint. It seems unbelievable they cannot afford to include a mechanical door release into their back doors.

quote:

We don't really know how the car will react to an accident, maybe it's worth waiting for official collision testing to see how the rear doors will react.

quote:

Don't use the back seat then.

quote:

Front passengers can exit using the emergency releases, then they open the rear doors from outside.

quote:

Wow. Every two door car with more than two seats is more dangerous for the back seat passengers based on your ignorant post. Please cancel your order and get you fully refundable deposit back. If you are just here to stir up trouble change your forum name and come back in one week and post the same thing.

quote:

Model_D hits it on the nose.

Every two-door coupe, and vehicle with third-row seats, is apparently a deathtrap.

Sheesh, get a life people.

quote:

that's an interesting concept. You're essentially buying a sedan that, potentially, can have its exiting accommodations be reduced to that of a coupe in the case of an accident.

If a coupe can be sold as a safe vehicle, I don't see how any safety regulation entity would take issue with a sedan with at least the safe exit accommodations of a coupe.

Whether or not this is ideal, though, is certainly in the eyes of the reservation holder. No one's making you choose this car as your next vehicle.

I think what you mean to say, then, is that you WISH the car had the same exiting accommodations as most sedans do these days. However, we already know the Model 3 isn't trying to be your typical sedan, and just as many who have wished the Model 3 had a binnacle (since it's a recurring public opinion that it's "dangerous" to be glancing at the far right of the center screen while driving) will continue to be told, maybe the Model 3 just isn't the right car for you.

quote:

I'm with Frank and Model_D. Typically children would be in the back seat with child safety locks engaged, so the Model 3 situation is no different than that.

quote:

It would be a true edge-instance for a rear passenger to end up trapped back there. Lots of things would have to go wrong at the same time.

Could happen, but not particularly likely - I'd go so far as to say "decidedly unlikely"

quote:

Hold on people, there isn't enough information, this is a lot of speculation. Somebody with a M# run into a pole at 50 Mph and see if the rear door opens

quote:

Don't worry the fire department has tools to get the doors open even if there is no power or severe body damage prevents the door from moving.

quote:

I'm less worried about this to be honest. I expect it will be a safer car overall for all passengers in any situation. A perceived flaw like this doesn't overcome performance in crash testing, rollover, etc. You could die in any car any time, children included. Random unpreventable stuff happens. By that logic, it is safest not to drive at all. While that is extreme, I think the safety pros here will outweigh the cons, and I think the model X and S have proven that to be true so far.

quote:

Once again, this is NOT a problem at all. Already covered in multiple other threads. At the ridk of seeming mean or dismissive, please do not fault an electric car company for having faith in electricity for just about every function of the cars they build.

quote:

Ah, ha! In the document @Carl Thompson posted, a few pages after the note that doors can't be opened without 12 volt are the instructions for connecting an external 12 volt source. While it's *possible* these could also be damaged, it does give an additional option for powering enough to open the rear doors if needed.

Here's a summary: if you're worried about your kids burning to death in the backseat of your family sedan because the doors won't open in an accident just don't use the backseat or buy a different car you big oil shill

Baxate posted:

do Tesla’s even have the folding front seats like coupes? and if so does it only work with power because if not I’m gonna have to give the safety nod to coupes

Doesn't look like it, back seats fold down to let you into the trunk which is the tasks-ordained method of allowing your frightened children to escape the thousand degree lithium fire

fun fact: it's impossible to open the rear doors ~at all~ without power

Their suggestion is to carry a separate external 12v power pack to open the back doors in case of accident lol, and dude posted it as a gotcha to the guy saying they won't open without power

there would need to be some work, maybe some handshake over bluetooth that signals the phone "hey you in a vehicle now" and reconfigures the UI to have bigger buttons, and the car maker could still provide quality of life stuff like steering wheel volume controls etc.

It's already done. If you install android auto on the phone it allows you to select a Bluetooth connection that it will automatically run when connected to, the car controls will allow you to skip tracks in the music player control volume take calls etc, it looks like this
