    I have another thread about my roof rack coming off here: Car flex and losing a roof rack with bikes?

    It appears the roof attachment mounts from the factory have rusted and contributed to the bolts coming out. I’ve heard from 5 others with similar rust, but wanted to find out if a lot of others with a sunroof have experienced similar rust on their rack attachment mounts.

    If rust is a real issue, I want to bring it to Tesla’s attention to inform folks to check them so a catastrophic accident doesn’t happen.

    My car is two years old this April and I don’t live near a coast or saltwater. C35F1CB0-857F-4052-BF1D-540F3956A7B0.jpeg A359CC6E-0245-47D9-881F-405EB22DC867.jpeg
