Oh you got flaps for your plaid?@CorporateB Well, this remains to be seen. I took delivery on 8/13 and opened a request with the SC to replace my 19s with All Seasons, free of charge, on 9/17. I get daily updates and they are waiting for direction/approval from the factory. Might be region specific. In my case, I'm in Seattle, which does qualify for the free flaps and PPF on rear door.
Ah, ok that makes sense.No, free all season tires for the plaid. Free flaps and PPF for the MYP. All good here.
definitely a personal decision. Panel gaps, gaskets, door alignment and paint defects can surely be fixed...everything can be fixed. So philosophically maybe the way to think about it is whether issues you find at delivery (and you won't find them all at delivery) have the potential to undermine the new car experience. You can always reject and get the next one...and send a message back to Tesla that this is a bilateral not a unilateral transaction.As someone who is scheduled to get my SP in December 2021, at what point do you reject the car at delivery vs just take it and have the SC do their warranty work on it later?
Responded in the main thread, but will share here as well:I accepted delivery yesterday. My bar for rejecting the car in favor of a '22 VIN was very low. But, it was in good condition, for Tesla standards... I spent two hours going over the car following the checklists in the first post. Thank you for that! I found pretty minor cosmetic stuff that I was assured they would correct in a follow-up service visit.
Some strange things:
- Is your instrument cluster screen kind of transparent? I can see some circuit board stuff or something behind the screen in daylight. Particularly noticeable in the "speed limit" sign. Photo below.
- I have 4 rough-cut holes in the bottom plastic trim on the right side of the car only. Looks like someone cut them with a hole saw after the car was painted. WTF is that? It was on all the cars on the lot, so I assume it wasn't a defect. Just stupid. Photo below.
- Does everyone else have two holes, one on either side, of the yoke? They look like they are melted in to the material or something. Kind of strange. Also, photo below.
- I have the airbag "worm" others reported. I assume Tesla can fix that later...
- My passenger side door takes a lot more force to close. I'm assuming it just needs to be adjusted.
- The trim pieces along the bottom edge of the windows on the right side of the car weren't secured. They just pull up. The left side was fine... Also, hopefully easy to fix.
- I had a stray thread on the drivers seat. I'll just snip it.
- I had some tiny scratches in the clear coat in two places, they said it can be fixed later. I'll document.
- I didn't get the small cargo cover for the trunk or a license plate frame. They said it would be shipped later.
Overall, pretty good delivery experience. Not as bad as my Model 3 in 2018, but not as good as my inventory P90DL in 2016...

Because it takes almost two hours to check for all these things and they aren't checking anything that comes off the line.... Too cheap and too focused on profit to pay someone to do all that QA.One thing I didn't understand, since there is an extensive list of known issues, why don't Tesla QA team take that list and make sure that each and every item is checked and cleared rather than letting customers find out these issue and complain about it?
Looks like it. Minor, in my opinion. Out of sight. No clue if it’s in previous versions. But could also be the double pane glass.
