Well quite. Never buy version 1 of anything. Anyone working in software or hardware development should know this implicitly.

No new vehicle ever rolls out with all its faults, bugs and quality issues sorted. Even with extensive testing, the manufacturer won't even know what they all are until people start crashing their cars, having them repaired / serviced etc.

Tesla is in a worse situation than most because it's rushing out a vehicle without an automated production line and with a hard deadline. They've never had a good reputation for quality and there are reports of quailty issues in the new vehicle. Eventually they'll sort it but the early adopters are basically paying for a beta quality vehicle.
