    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Third time is the charm. Finally accepted deliver of my Red/Black M3P yesterday after having to reject 2 that had horrible quality control issues. This one was freaking perfect in every regard. Every gap, panel alignment, door handle alignment, and window trim is freaking perfect. I don't think...

    2022 Model 3s should start rolling out here pretty soon.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Agree to disagree I suppose. Perhaps if there was more competition Tesla wouldn't be getting away with subpar quality control. Since that doesn't seem to matter to you as much as it matters to me, to each his own I suppose. If there was an equally competitive car out there right now, I would be...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Whatever is paid above is still going towards the cost of the car, no? Furthermore, this "social media induced trend" you speak of is there for a reason. Tesla makes GREAT cars. The fact that they steered an entire industry towards EVs is nothing short of amazing, but if you are trying to argue...

    Whiny? You think it's whiny of people to expect quality in a car they are spending $60-70K on?

    Have them align that rear driver window trim as well. Picture definitely makes it look like its off.

    For the trunk, I made a video but its too large and won't let me post here.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Either everyone here is very lucky and I'm not, or people don't inspect their cars during delivery because I just got back from the SC after rejecting my second Red M3P. To be fair, it was in overall much better shape that the first one I rejected. Some minor issues were misaligned frunk...

    Got another VIN today after having to reject delivery on 9/17. EDD is 9/29-30 now. Let's hope this one goes better 😂

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I just checked and the VIN was removed from my account and app. I should have made a note of it elsewhere but I didn't. Maybe just check the manufacturing date upon delivery? If its before 9/17, you know it could be that one haha

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Just went and pick up a 2022 Corolla with a friend of mine. Man, I have to say, the quality control difference was night and day between the M3P I rejected yesterday and the Corolla we picked up today. Not trying to put Tesla down here but holy *sugar* I was hard pressed to see ANYTHING out of sync...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I had only paid the $6000 up front and signed the loan agreement. I had not accepted the delivery in the application. I would suggest that NO ONE accept deliver until they do a thorough inspection. In my experience, the quality takes a hit toward the end of the quarter. I still kept my order and...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I was told the one sitting next to mine was their the car they use for test drives. Made me wonder if if was made perfect like that because it was a "show" car.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It was totaled by a F150 doing 60 mph in a 30 mph zone. Luckily no one was hurt. I'm no mechanic, so I had to only go with my previous experience. I was told "within spec" or "no adjustable because bolted/welded in place" on my previous M3P. I did not want to risk it as I was as surprised as you...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Rear passenger side door handle was sunk into the body by like 0.5 cm. Rear driver side door was misaligned including the trim, you could see the gap being very small toward the top and very large toward the bottom. Charge port cover was hanging out of alignment by a good 4 mm. The frunk gaps...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    My delivery was scheduled for 9/18 for them to bring it to my house. I got a text message today to see if I wanted to pick it up today at the SC. I prefer picking up at the SC so I decided to go there. This was the hardest "no" I've had to mutter my entire life. Saw too many small problems...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    NorCal people getting pushed to the back of the line it seems. I miss my M3P (It was totaled), tired of driving the Civic. Want my new one :(

    Order Model 3 Performance now...or wait until black window trim?

    I will be buying a Mode 3 Performance in either White or Red. But there were a couple of things that held me back. When I saw that the Model Y came with black window trim and USB-C standard, I wanted to wait a few weeks/months to see if those things would be added onto the Model 3 as well since...
