Elon Musk Opens Auto Repair Chain That Just Tells Customers Hyperloop Would Be Faster
That'll be $20 per month, please.
World championship of financial bungles heir apparent Elon Musk announced a new venture this week which is aimed at “disrupting the auto repair industry,” and its called Elon Auto.
The chain claims to be “Fully Automated, Carbon Neutral, and Correct Every Time.” Yet while the above slogan may be arguable on the technicalities, prospective customers at the first few locations aren’t thrilled, and critics say this is just Musk playing for headlines.
“I brought in my Volvo for an oil change and the robot just told me Hyperloop would be a better option,” said Avi Ridgeguy, 44. “I mean, okay, but at least my Volvo is actually built.”
Constance Knocking, 32, had a similar experience. “I don’t know too much about cars but I know a lot about smoke, and this thing makes way too much smoke. But that dang robot didn’t do diddley but tell me to switch to Hyperdoop. I don’t even know what that is!”
Whether the new venture will disrupt auto repair or not remains to be seen, which, critics claim, is more than can be said for Hyperloop.
