Since spring 2022, Jose Castillo of the YouTube channel RivianTrackr has proudly owned a quad-motor Rivian R1T.

He felt it would be beneficial for potential purchasers to know

what to anticipate from the carmaker and the vehicle itself, since May marks his two-year anniversary of ownership.

Purchasing a car during its debut model year may be risky, and Jose's Rivian was among the first 4,000 units sold.

Being among the first owners of the first model from a brand-new carmaker, however,

can be the riskiest decision of all if you enjoy living on the edge. Ask any driver of a Fisker Ocean what could go wrong.
