    I just noticed the chrome window molding on the passenger door is slightly misaligned. The driver door side looks perfectly fine though. Has anyone encountered this problem before?

    Only every single one of us.

    It's a very simple fix for a SC or you can have a go yourself. It just needs pulling and pushing into alignment.

    It can be easily fixed by SC or a ranger visit, but it sometimes comes back...

    Notice the misalignment of the shelf just under each piece of trim? The actual door alignment is off - or the panel stamping accuracy is just poor.

    You can make the trim align by adjusting it but it’s just hiding another frequently seen problem. Welcome to Tesla!
