A class-action lawsuit was filed against Tesla Motors for allegedly falsely advertising that used Tesla model S and model X vehicles travel approximately 210 miles on a full charge when, according to the complaint, the vehicles travel only 166 miles on a full charge. Plaintiffs also claim that Tesla represents that it has fully inspected vehicles without providing written details about the results to buyers and that the company fails to honor the advertised warranties. The lawsuit was originally filed
in July 2019 and amended
in November 2019. (Nguyen et al v. Tesla, Inc. d/b/a Tesla Motors, Inc.
, Case No. 19-cv-1442, C.D. Cal.)
