Tesla CEO Elon Musk's tweets cause a stir once more – but this time it's about the electric car company exec's car return guidance in conjunction with what's on the company's website.
Tesla's return policy sets out a seven-day return window for any delivered cars. But it indicates that you are only eligible for return if "you have brought your vehicle without taking a test or demo drive with us."

We reached out to Tesla for more information on conflicting return policies and" language delays. "A spokesman said the policy had been updated by the time Musk tweeted Wednesday, but the website was not updated yet.
Now it is up to date and any customer can return their car within seven days or 1000 miles for a full refund, regardless of whether they has taken a test drive. Everyone is on the same page again. % 3a% 2f% 2fblueprint api production.s3.amazonaws "src =" https://mondrian.mashable.com/uploads%252Fvideo_uploaders%252Fdistribution_thumb%252Fimage%252F90778%252F1ead32dd-1670-49cc-8898-f61194798d83.jpg%252Foriginal. jpg? signature = GG6FuM33CSUW61GkFeqv_4jdyYc = & source = https% 3A% 2F% 2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com "data-fragment =" m! 8262 "data-image =" https://mondrian.mashable.com/ uploads% 252Fvideo_uploaders% 252Fdistribution_thumb% 252Fimage% 252F9 0778% 252F1ead32dd- 1670-49cc-8898-f61194798d83.jpg% 252Foriginal.jpg?
