It is always a risk with new technology that version one will experience its teething problems. That is why even though I am an early tech adopter, I chose to lease initially for 3 years and reupped for another 2 years so I could return the car to the dealer. When I was considering buying my 3 year old 2014, I was only willing to shell out $14K with remaining warranty. The dealer did not bite at that price although I saw it listed used on cargurus.com for $18K so it likely went at auction for my offered price.
A long way of saying that even though the risk is low and the car is very nice, gotta be wary of version one issues like the ones in these posts.
I will still lease another electric in 2020 as a result.
You are dealing with two companies. Mercedes has the main responsibility but the entire drive train is from Tesla. The whole thing takes a while.
At least it is a drive train part. To fix my screw up with the suspension took 2 months. Since the car is discontinued parts are slow and most come from Germany. The Tesla motor should be sooner.

I loved the VW but it was too hard to get into for my aged body.
I am back to another 2017 Cirrus White B250e.
