Texas is trying to block Tesla from even servicing its cars in direct sale battle with car dealers

The local car dealer lobby is using old laws meant to stop automakers to compete with their own franchise dealers to block Tesla from selling their own cars directly to consumers even though Tesla never had any franchise dealers.

Texas’s use of direct-sale laws was already ridiculously abused but they are now pushing it to a whole new level of stupidity.

It should not matter who repairs a car; as long as it is done right.
