Hi, I am trying to understand is what is a reasonable quality threshold past which it is OK to refuse a car on delivery. I am well aware that Tesla have issues with QC on cosmetic and paneling defects and that most of them are ok probably since one wins on other areas (power train, engine and driving experience). Reason I’m asking is that I just refused 2 Model 3 D back to back this week, and start questioning my expectations despite the Tesla employees telling me that it was understandable that I would refuse the vehicles. story: I ordered a Tesla M3D midnight grey a few weeks ago and had it delivered on Sunday 09/22 in Marina del Rey CA. I refused that vehicle because it had damage that would have required a trip to the shop to correct. It had gap issues on the chrome trim around the windows but most of them have. I was told to go home and that someone would contact me and spent 2 days trying to reach out to someone in order to know what the next steps were. I managed to reach out to the sales man who told me that a car would be ready 2 days later (9/26). I stated the obvious « could you please make sure that the car is inspected before delivery » I went to pick up the second delivery and it ended up being in worst condition than the first one. Scratches all over the front bumper (some of them came out after someone spending time on it), Scratch on the back bumper, scratch on the central console. Minor paint defects (paint dust pimples, and white spots under the coat). The deal breaker was a small ding on the crease edge of the driver side back door. I also refused the vehicle. I asked the employee if this was on par with Tesla’s the quality standard and he wasn’t comfortable answering. The first picture is the main paint issue on the first vehicle, the other pictures are from the second vehicle) They gave me a new appointment for tomorrow 9/27 10am. Finger crossed. I am curious to know what people think is acceptable and what would be ok to have Tesla fix after delivery. Thanks! Charles. PS: The reason I expect them to inspect and fix things before delivery is that it’s going to be my second M3D, the first one was bought back full price a month ago by Tesla after spending 7 weeks in repair over the first 9 months. I’d like to avoid going through half that next time.
