    George Clooney ======== came out and said it

    " “I had a Tesla. I was one of the first cats with a Tesla,” Clooney bragged to Esquire in a recent interview. “But I’m telling you, I’ve been on the side of the road a while in that thing. And I said to them, ‘Look, guys, why am I always stuck on the side of the #$%$ road? Make it work, one way or another.’”

    That was the Roadster. The Tesla Model S seems plagues with problems also.

        George Clooney not happy with Tesla Roadster he used to own

        Published: Tuesday, 12 Nov 2013 | 9:02 AM ET

        DETROIT, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc got more bad news this week following the third fire in its Model S electric sedan as actor George Clooney complained about being stuck on the side of the road in the Roadster sports car he used to own.

        Clooney, currently starring in the movie "Gravity", was asked by Esquire magazine in an interview that was posted online on Monday whether he owned a Tesla car.

        "I had a Tesla," Clooney told the magazine. "I was one of the first cats with a Tesla. I think I was, like, No. 5 on the list. But I'm telling you, I've been on the side of the road a while in that thing, and I said to them, 'Look, guys, why am I always stuck on the side of the #$%$ road? Make it work, one way or another."'

        Tesla discontinued the Roadster and currently only sells the Model S sedan. Clooney last year auctioned off his Roadster for charity for $99,000, according to media reports.

        Last week, Tesla reported the third fire in the car in Tennessee. Police reports said the veicle had run over a tow hitch that punctured the armor plating that protects the battery pack of lithium-ion cells. Despite no injuries in any of the accidents, the headlines about the fires have been unwelcome news for a company whose stock had risen sixfold in the first nine months of the year before the first fire occurred on Oct. 1.

        Officials with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said they were communicating with Tesla and Tennessee authorities and were gathering information about the incident to determine if additional action was necessary.

        The owner of the car, Dr. Juris Shibayama, said in a blog posted by Tesla over the weekend that the car warned him to pull over after he hit a trailer hitch in the road. After he got out of the car, it caught fire ,,,,
