I was supposed to take delivery of my Model Y this Thursday. Got a call today from the SC letting me know that they caught a paint issue as part of the Quality Check. They have rescheduled delivery for next Wednesday so that they could fix it.

Did anyone go through a similar experience? Is this something I should be worried about? Anything I should be asking them before delivery?

Fairly common. Paint issues are the least of your worries.

I had paint work done on my Tesla and couldn't even tell it was "repaired." If you're really concerned you could ask your SA for pictures so you can keep your eyes open upon your delivery inspection

I am actually worried about this because I have delivery scheduled for Friday and am selling my car tomorrow. I sent an email to the dealership to make sure everything is good to go, as I don't want to be without a vehicle.

Many are ICE cars get their paint fixed, the difference is they are inventory cars so the repairs get done and the consumer never knows. Tesla owners know because they’re physically waiting for their vehicles. You should be fine.

Yes. I went through same thing in Cali. No problems, car was perfect.

Back in 2016, Tesla found a paint issue on the hatch of my first Model S when doing a pre-delivery inspection. At the time, they gave me the choice of taking delivery and having it fixed or waiting for it to be fixed first. I opted to take delivery. A few weeks later, I dropped the car off and they fixed the issue.
