For context, see my Reddit post from a few days ago here: I showed up to my delivery appointment, my Model 3 did not. • r/teslamotors Just thought I would share an update here with this audience. After the disappointment of showing up to my Wednesday morning delivery appointment only to be told my car was MIA (and being promised it would be delivered by end-of-month), I showed up to my new appointment this afternoon. Of course, as soon as I walk in and let them know I'm here, I check my e-mail as I wait only to see they e-mailed me about an hour earlier to tell me my car would not be ready (I was already en-route to the SC when they sent it). Apparently, my car did not pass their pre-delivery inspection, so they send me home again and tell me they will give me an update on Monday. A few questions for you all: Is it unusual for a Model 3 to not be ready for delivery over 48 hours after being delivered to the Service Center? I know they got it delivered Thursday morning. I'm happy they put it through QA pre-delivery, but I have no idea how much time that should take. They mentioned that there was an issue with the car's firmware. That seemed very odd to me...shouldn't that just be a software update? Makes me think there was some serious build quality issues that they did not want to disclose. I did not think to ask to see the car...I wish I would have. At this point, what are my options to just decline delivery? What happens to the $1,000 + $2,500 + ~$10,000 I've already paid Tesla? What if I tell them I just want to wait for the Standard Range to be available (as was my original plan)?
