    Considering how Tesla is still a new company and based on the history of issues with the early builds of the Model S and X, I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of common issues for new owners of the Model 3 to look out for when taking delivery. I'll start the list.

    1. Long wait to receive the car (480 days and counting)

    2. Too many strange speculation threads before the car is even available.

    So when a new owner takes delivery of their Model 3, the first thing they need to worry about is the delay it took from pre order to delivery?

    Not enough space in trunk for bodies.

    I also measure trunk space in number of bodies. It's good to see I;m not alone.

    Speak for yourself... :p I've been waiting since the first master plan said they were going to build a car I could possibly afford.
    Technically, they are still early with the Model 3 release.

    That means three or four trips and it doesn't have the battery life to do that without a supercharger stop, which are tough to find in the Everglades.

    Makes sense why the test drivers keep covering their cars at superchargers.

    No worries. This car was envisioned by Elon Musk and, if you know anything about him, it will have a TARDIS trunk.

    We already have a way to list common issues for the Model 3. It's called TMC.

    No need for it to be a thread.

    Is a large portion of the population hauling around surf boards? I live in the middle of the country, no beaches in sight. I only need to haul bodies.
