From safety recalls to critical reviews and a heavy short position, there have been bumps along the way for Tesla Motors' stock, and yet it keeps driving forward.
The electric car maker caught a negative review from Consumer Reports on Tuesday, in which the magazine said its Model S sedan has "more than its share of problems."
The publication praised the car for its design and smoothness, but is now also detailing various issues with a Model S that it has driven about 16,000 miles. Tesla points out that its warranty covered the issues mentioned and that Consumer Reports benefits, as any owner would, from its comprehensive warranty program.
Still, the stock only fell roughly 1.5 percent in midday trading.
