        GM killed the electric car (EV1) because the dealers couldn't make any money servicing it (no oil changes, etc., and about the only replacement part was windshield wipers).

        According to Tesla website, they need some service at least once a year.

        They will actually send a truck to you to do the service, if no dealer. However, unless there is someone nearby who could actually fix the car, no deal for now.

        (I am hoping someone from Tesla catches this and pushes for a Twin Cities dealer).
