Tesla Ranks Near Bottom Of Consumer Reports Survey

We've all heard the reports of various problems with Tesla's cars but I didn't think it was this bad. This is not some fly-by-night group handing out bad reviews either, this is Consumer Reports we are talking about. Damn.

Tesla, the upstart all-electric automaker that once landed Consumer Reports' best-ever performance rating, has now achieved a far less impressive feat, with a ranking from the reviewer that labels it one the least reliable car companies in America. The Consumer Reports' ranking, released Monday, places Tesla at no. 25 of 29 for reliability, with reviewers saying the automaker's new Model X SUV "has been plagued with malfunctions," including with the "falcon-wing doors" that have become its signature.
