Transportation: Hitting an ordinary pothole causes $2700 damage to Tesla Model 3

Tesla strikes a  highway pothole in Illinois, flattens two tires and destroys the rims. Everyone else just whizzes by without suffering the same fate. 100 minutes later, his vehicle is towed  to a Tesla service center and he gets a bill for $2668 to replace the two tires and rims and do the alignment.

I was shocked by this. First, pot holes are pretty common in our part of the country. Regular vehicles rarely suffer blown tires and rims. And the cost for repair is vastly less than that for the Tesla as shown in this video. Wow.  Seriously, I just lost interest in the Tesla after watching this, which is not what either the presenter (a good guy) or us want.
