BTW saw an earlier post of yours saying you were thinking you might sell your Model 3 and buy a MS instead. Can't imagine how you must be feeling right now. Would like to have a better idea when you can for what transpired. Our garage door has a motion detector eye basically at the bottom of the door as required (some code thing) but until the car wheels cross the light path at the bottom there I don't think it would sense the car was backing up or even going front end first.
Did you happen to have the auto-close option activated, or just auto-open?Exactly this until tires dont reach it because the sensor is at just above feet level it would not know the car is there. Honestly freak accident as i could not see the garage door closing through rear view mirror. I emailed my service advisor.
I'm beyond pissed, upset. I have an appointment next thursday for service for the rim they gave me that was scratched on delivery day, replacement of the chargeport door and painting the hood (came scratched) now I have this done which of course is my fault...I'm pretty disillusioned with the car at this point.
I will show up to drop off the car tomorrow in the morning whether they are ready for me or not.
If it were just the trunk I would not be as terribly upset as I am knowing that the rear window is cracked from the impact.
That has happened to me twice, both times I saw the door coming down and quickly entered the garage before the door could hit my car. I find it happens when I pull out of the garage and stop in the driveway (to unload or wash the car) and then pull back in. It seems that the system can't tell if I'm coming or going when I park close. I never fully trust it anymore.
Manufacturer and the CPSC says between 4” - 6”. If you move it higher and someone gets injured, you’re on your own.Raise the sensors that are mounted at the garage door opening on each side up to just higher than the bumper of your car, this will not allow the door to come down onto your car.

The rule is to keep a child from getting hurt that is laying under the door. Sensors above 6” and a child would not be detected.
