Perhaps this suggestion can help Tesla become even more successful?

Not long ago, we shared an article and video about Tesla's biggest asset. While there are many assets that people will call the company's greatest (the Supercharger Network, Model 3, Elon Musk, Autopilot, etc.), our friend Sean Mitchell concluded that the company's supportive customer base tops the list. He presented that information in part one of a two part series, and we've been eagerly awaiting the sequel. So, what is Tesla's greatest liability? Moreover, how can the company fix it and surge forward even more successfully?

Like the asset question, people will have mixed responses pertaining to Tesla's top liability (Elon Musk, financial situation, low gas prices in some areas, vehicle quality, haters and short sellers, etc.). According to Sean, the company's biggest issue comes down to customer response time. Now that the Silicon Valley automaker has grown exponentially, it seems it just can't keep up with a multitude of its responsibilities. Fortunately, Sean has a viable solution and presents it as an open letter to Elon Musk. Check out the video for more details.

Do you agree with Sean? If not, what do you think Tesla's greatest liability is? Additionally, how can the automaker work to fix it? Finally, leave us your thoughts in the comment section below.
