    Hey everyone, Looking for some input/perspective/advice. This would be our 3rd Tesla (current 2016 MX & 2019 M3 owner). Was supposed to take delivery today of a new MX to replace our current MX. Upon inspection we found the following issues: Interior Passenger side 2nd row seat was...

    Model S Plaid -- Battery Failure -- Day 1

    Picked up my Red Plaid today with 19inch wheels (told first 19" delivery at my Service Center) with 4 miles on it! Delivery experience has gradually gone down hill (my 4th Tesla) and this experience was by far the worst. You purchase a $130K car and expect to see someone other than the 18...

    New Tesla (MY) Owner: What Fit & Finish Issues to Look for During Delivery?

    Hi there team. I will be (hopefully) accepting delivery of my first Tesla vehicle, a Model Y, this Sunday. I have no clue what to look for regarding fit and finish issues (what counts as a panel gap or misalignment?). Which issues can be fixed easily and which are big enough of an issue that I...

    Do I have a Performance Model Y?

    I ordered a Dual Motor Long Range Model Y in late January, and recently got a text saying my car was ready for delivery at the Buena Park location. Since I live in Northern California, I wasn't inclined to fly to Los Angeles to pick up my car so I let that go. I arranged to pick up my car at the...

    New Car Owner: What do I need to look for?

    Hi all, I've had my current ICE for 13 years and finally decided to take the plunge and go for a Model 3. This is my first vehicle purchase (last one was inherited) and also the largest purchase I've ever made... so I'm a little nervous. Any advice on what I should be looking for, what...

    Hi fellow M3'ers - I am about to take the delivery in about 10 days and wanted to see if there is a list of things to check when taking the delivery. Also is it any better to take the delivery at the service center or at home ? thanks

    Taking delivery tomorrow - what should I look for?

    Hello, Tesla gurus! I am taking delivery tomorrow of a Model 3 AWD in blue with a black & white interior! SO excited to see this car, since I didn't get to see a blue and white combo in person at all - just hoping I fall in love at first sight... That said, what do you recommend that I look...

    The double-edged sword of the end-of-quarter production push.

    Like many reservation holders in Northern California, as Q3 drew to a close in September I received a text stating that my expected mid-November X 100D would instead be available in 3 days (Sept 30, last day of the quarter). I was not prepared at the time, but quickly got a loan application in...

    Nightmarish Tesla Model 3 delivery - need help

    I reserved my Model 3 two plus years ago by going to the showroom, waiting 5 hours in line and ordered the car when I was invited for the Dual Motor version. My car came to the showroom in early September, so I got the loan from a credit union and went to go pick up the vehicle at my assigned...

    I picked up my 2018 Model S 100D at Burbank Tesla this weekend. This car was a showroom demo--I don't know which showroom. My salesperson told me there was no damage on the car, and that the price was reduced because it had 264 miles on it. Also, I would be able to take delivery within 2 weeks...

    Positive delivery experience at Fremont - issue was fixed on the spot

    Lots of posts with delivery issues/disappointments so thought I'd share a positive one. Have had the M3 for a little over one week now and enjoying it immensely. We picked up the car from Fremont delivery center and the process was pretty smooth. During inspection, we found the frunk cover...

    Picked up my M3 on Sunday without any issues

    The only negative aspect of my Fremont, Ca delivery on Sunday was the 45 minute wait. I was worried after reading the horror stories about fit and finish, scratches and other issues yet when I thoroughly went over the car, I found no issues. The Tesla rep spent 2 minutes with me showing me the...

    Water Repair Checklist?

    So this was sitting on the dashboard of my Model 3. Took a picture of it on the Tesla lot. Was told of a delivery delay pertaining to some “minor cosmetic” issues. Delivery specialist says paint chip on trunk and it needs to go to body shop. But this water repair checklist has got me nervous...

    Negativity bias?

    Hi everyone! I take delivery of my model s tomorrow so I have been more aggressively combing through the forums to learn as much as I can, one thing has stood out though: I couldn't help but notice the high volume of posts with nightmarish stories. From autopilot parking crashes and spontaneous...

    I can't believe condition of my new MS at delivery

    After reading all the comments about cars with multiple problems, I thought I was ready for anything. I was hoping that my instincts were right, and that people without problems probably don't post, and the unfortunate stories were anomalies, vs normal. But I wasn't expecting a pristine...
