    New Delivery Paint Issues

    Very disappointing. I'd hoped that Tesla would have solved what should have been a simple problem by now.

    Tesla quality control may cost Tesla its lead in the EV market

    Don't you think that a "garbage" label is a bit harsh for the QC and SC? There are issues, granted, but I hardly think they qualify for an overall "garbage" label. That said, however, it is the QC and SC issues that are keeping me out of the showroom. A trip to the nearest SC is about 400 miles...

    Tesla quality control may cost Tesla its lead in the EV market

    I cannot disagree with your point. It was not pertinent to this thread. I went back and looked at the comments prior to my posting, and found that there was some discussion about the Chinese Tesla. Felling the Chinese version will probably be better assembled that the California version .... I...

    Tesla quality control may cost Tesla its lead in the EV market

    Thank you FlatSix911, I appreciate your comment. These forums are interesting. Looking back, I see that I got 3 disagrees on my post. I wonder what they disagreed too? Is there any dispute that from a technical standpoint, Tesla has been a trend setter. Or that vehicles were delivered that...

    With the Cybertruck unveiled where will the Model 3 go in terms of specs.

    afadeev - I do not disagree with you ..... I just don't think there are enough "look at me night crawlers" to make the vehicle profitable. But like I said .... I hope Im wrong. I am a Tesla supporter.

    With the Cybertruck unveiled where will the Model 3 go in terms of specs.

    I hope I am wrong .... but the more I see and think about the cybertruck, I only see a very limited market for the vehicle. Perhaps EM should not have called it a "truck." Maybe "Cybercraft? Cybercruiser? He should have launched the Cybertruck into space .... then he could have called it a...

    Anyone else going to trade their Model 3 for Cybertruck?

    Whereas all of the other Tesla offerings are very beautiful ... .... the cybertruck is not. (IMHO) I'm sure that loyal Tesla followers will buy the cybertruck, but I'm hesitant to say that it will have the hoped-for mass appeal. Here is the west, most trucks (and there are exceptions) are...

    Tesla quality control may cost Tesla its lead in the EV market

    An opinion: In a few short years, we will look back and conclude that Tesla squandered their opportunity to maintain the leader role in EV development. No one can dispute that technologically, Tesla was on the leading edge ..... way out in front of all the competition. No other manufacturer was...

    New Delivery Paint Issues

    Teslas' are not painted by hand .... at least that is what a recent Tesla video of the assembly line showed. If Tesla managers are deliberately applying inferior paint .... it's a foolish decision. And now, there are video articles on YouTube regarding shoddy paint. Once public confidence (and...

    Pictures of production Model 3s

    "Made in America" - a slogan most will applaud. "Made in California" - Hmmm ....

    Pictures of production Model 3s

    Boy wouldn't you love to examine a China Tesla. We'd all be most interested in learning if the build quality, fit and finish and paint are superior to California assembled Teslas'. From what has been written on this forum, domestic Teslas' have improved build quality .... we all hope so.

    Paint Problems on my new Model 3

    Just read that Bloomberg claims Tesla's build quality has made tremendous improvements. That is wonderful news, and news that we can all celebrate.

    Paint Problems on my new Model 3

    Based solely on what has been written on this forum. First, after assembling as many cars as have been built in California .... Tesla should have resolved all the QC issues by now. A recent YouTube video shows Tesla's being assembled. The narrator raved about QC and how robots perform with...

    Starting to regret my purchase

    Electricfan said - "if you can wait a few years, maybe Tesla will get better, or VW or somebody else will have a quality vehicle out." Total agreement. I'm not sure I can wait "a few years" for Tesla to get better. I looked at a comprehensive review of the VW ID.3. Very interesting! Based on...
