I got my Tesla Model 3 December 2020 and had stone chips and paint peel around 1 month later. Also inside door hinges, spoke to Tesla and said they would fix everything apart from all stone chips. So admitted paint problems, just not chips anyone had this issue getting whole job done?

Yes will do so far looks like would have to get a spectra test on paint and sounds like a hornet to get it fixed. That’s on top of new heat pump and front window leaks and new replacement cameras. Thinking some of this batch was rushed to get to magic 500,000 orders for shareholders

Perhaps a batch of bad paint they got…. But it would be across multiple white cars.

Yes not sure had lots of cars and never seen it that bad so early. As I used to paint cars back a long time ago as apprentice. You would prime/coat x2 and clear coat. This is razor thin paint anything hitting with speed is chipping it. Normally Audi/BMW that owned did not suffer this. Just hard to see Tesla doing stone chips as it would open up large can of worms. That said if enough effort to prove is made sure they would reassess after already telling me the under side was soft and will fix.
