    Is anyone concerned about possible quality issues of February/March vehicles being built right after the assembly line retooling pause? I'm concerned that this retooling pause could re-introduce the early build issues back into the production.

    What do you guys think?

    Or the pause could improve quality, if reports about all the assembly workers overtime are true.

    I would say opposite is true. That's when they fix and or add items to the cars. Can only be a good thing if you are waiting.

    I just confirmed my model X 100D yestersday. Delivery estimate in May to early June. i also kinda wondered what impact if any the production shutdown would have on quality. hopefully it makes it better and theh continue to refine things in the next couple months..

    It's not clear to me whether they are in any way changing the S/X lines or are merely working on new lines for 3 to try to test run the production of that.

    Shutting down a line is incredibly expensive for any manufacturing company, so any upgrades, re-tooling or servicing will be done at the same time. Tesla always makes design tweaks anyway, so cars built in March will be better than Feb.
