new car, plastic piece came loose under car


Nov 5, 2018
Los Angeles, CA
Got my car about a week ago.

Noticed it would make a rattle noise when backing out of my driveway sometimes.

Didn’t think too much of it.

Only have 100 miles on the car.

Today, I noticed something sticking out from under the car, under the frunk area.

Took a closer look and found a large piece of plastic has come loose and sticking down.

Tesla service appointment not available for another 30 days!

Safe to keep driving like this until then?
