    Thanks for asking for opinions rather than just eating *sugar* that is spoon fed to you by those with an agenda.

    My Model 3 hasn’t shaken apart yet despite many launches from zero to sixty at 3.5 seconds.

    I would have to disassemble and tear down my 3 which I’m not going to do to try and verify those claims.

    All I can say is I had a paint chip in my car and a charging port door alignment issue. Tesla is addressing those.

    My car wasn’t prestine but it’s not falling apart. If something happens, I have faith in Tesla to make things whole.

    Non-junk media is reporting that tear down engineers think the cars are so overbuilt that Tesla can't make a profit on them.

    I've had mine for a week. FWIW this car's fit and finish is as good as any other I've driven.

    I don't think I've seen Business Insider ever post a positive Tesla article. Btw, BI is owned by a company with short positions on TSLA, for whatever that's worth.

    That’s reassuring.

    I am inclined to discount these stories as this sort of thing does seem to be the in thing to do.

    But it’s still good to get some feedback from people who actually own the car.
