With GM going to fully digital instrumentation in the HummerEv @Aloppen can you tell us the design life of these components? The only reason I ask is because I read Tesla is lobbying to get these information screens and the computers that drive them to be considered a wear part which is only covered by the basic vehicle warranty, and have stated customers "should not expect longer then a 6 year life" from them. To me this is very important as these are expensive components and I think should be designed to last a reasonable life of the vehicle, at least 10 years half a million miles.
Al Prescott, Tesla’s Vice President of Legal, told NHTSA that the MCU does not have a defect. In his words, it just wore out like brakes, lights, tires.
