    Excellent car so far. Little annoyances is that the drivers door requires extra effort than most cars to property close. The frunk requires a lot of effort to get it probably closed.

    Add me to the list of new Model 3 owners that is experiencing the low brake fluid and low windshield washer fluid alerts for the first 30 seconds after start-up. @RandyS -- has someone at Tesla agreed that a software fix is the solution? Is there anything I can reference (like a Technical Service Bulletin, if Tesla does that) to help make my call to Tesla Service easier?

    I have the same, TM3 delivered 7/1. Service topped up my washer fluid and it did the same thing the next day. Service said to do a bug report (voice command "bug report"). He said it might be a fuse problem but it would nice if it's a SW fix.

    same here too, my car was delivered on 7/3, had low washer fluid warning since day 1, now intermittently get both low washer fluid and brake warning when first started up, then disappear after about 30 secs
