    A year later is better but not much. Test drove one and if it was another brand than Tesla I would have guessed it was a car that had its frame bent in an accident and the body shop did their best to get the panels lined back up.

    tis what you get when you buy merican. cz all elon cares about is keeping those shareholders happy. "I told them i would make 1bar cars in 2020, we cannot keep the quality standards high, we have to keep the numbers up". Nevermind the customer, nope - shareholders ftl. get rekt.

    2 things utterly subpar on Tesla vehicles. Their customer support, or lack of it and their quality. Customer support : On day one, they delivered the car and left it at my driveway. I wasn't able to unlock it from my cellphone, and the delivery guy can't help because once he exited the car, it was locked. Call their support center and they couldn't help because they delivered the car a day earlier and my cellphone can't activate the Tesla Apps because in theory the car still wasn't mine until the delivery date arrives. There I have the car blocking my driveway and can't move it, nor can I drive my other car parked in the garage because the Model Y was blocking my driveway. After dialoguing with the support center (which wasn't easy at all because of their business model leaving their customer high and dry, it took them 3 hours to unlock the car remotely so I can retrieve the card keys to use it before my phone can the activated. So the bottom line is their inept system screw up their customer and the last resort is for them to unlock it from their control center. BTW, that tells me regardless of where you are, they can have access to your vehicle and drive it away because they have full control of where you are, and full control of your car. There were other issues when I need to have them rectify on a new car. The rear switch that flips down the rear seats on my MY did not work. They have to drive it down to their service center, get a rental to come back, then they messaged me that the car was ready, then found out after I went to retrieve my car, I wasn't even told that the car was not fixed because they have to order th parts. I drove the car back and then got the message that they have to contact me again after the part arrives. Another issue, there was a bump (high spot) on the tailgate. This was not a ding, but rather seems like an impact that came from underneath the sheet metal. This can only happen during assembly that someone bumped it from the inside, causing the high spot. I texted their service, even send a picture and they agreed to have their mobile unit out to fix it. I had to cancel a doctor's appointment to wait at home for them to show up. But they never came because they texted me saying that these kind of work cannot be done by their mobile unit. That was nice, then why would they put me through the ordeal to have to account for cancelling my doctor's appt and then they changed their mind. It seems that their entire customer support is a joke. I like their design, innovations and engineering, but their lack of quality and customer support are just subpar. It almost seems like their success has gotten into their head and NO, had I known of how bad their support is, I wouldn't have bought any EV from them. Give them credit for creating EVs on a path to be mainstay to take over ICE vehicles, but their arrogance and business model sucks. If they can't see it coming, the rest of the vehicle manufacturers will eat them for lunch once they catch up. It is happening quicker than they think. They are already raising a red flag in China for their business model and now Ford is already coming out with a EV SUV that can compete with Tesla.

    Tesla fans have to be smoking something really strong to buy this piece of crap. Do yourself a favour, examine the build of Lexus or Audi or Porsche that are in this price range. And btw, I understand EV argument, but in that case it should be called "donating to Elon Musk", not buying a premium car and trying really hard to tell how "it's normal" to have such build.

    Many would disagree but I see Tesla as a ponzi scam. No doubt that Elon is a visionary and has a great courage. But he is moving too fast with too many things. His marketing skills lured investors but you need to make sure that everything is made properly before releasing. This appalling design errors show that they designed this in a hurry to meet some deadlines. I can understand he is trying to grab the entire EV market, but look at recently released German EVs. Miles ahead and perfectly built.

    @David Michael I heard some other stories about malfunction as well. I’m returning my Mercedes 350e car. The lease is over and I need to make decision for my next car. Although I ordered Tesla but I’m thinking it’s super expensive and if i get a faulty one then it’s no good. My Mercedes had some malfunction or I can say bug, in some rare condition it slows down and shows a red screen saying you are on EV mode and get gas immediately. I knew my car has gas and it was fully charged. I had to stop the car that was barely moving in the middle of street, wait for a bit, then I was able to start it. I think electronic cars are still not 100% reliable.

    @Marjan Tehrani I just refused to my model Y Delivery yesterday 4/30/21...The only thing better on my build was the tail lights (they seemed fine)...But the hood and the Panel gaps were bad...Since the outside was unacceptable I didn’t bother checking the inside...but, I did notice mine had the common problem where the rear passenger seat Doesn’t lineup correctly (it’s higher by a couple of inches) I just can’t justify spending $50,000 and not get a quality built vehicle… I have seen where others have posted that they refused delivery and their next build was perfect...of course most don’t have the luxury to wait...I purposely decided to hold onto my current car knowing this....if my next build Isn’t worth $50,000 then it will be refused also.

    The out-of-the-box quality issues alone are immediately alarming, but it also raises the issue of durability. How long before even more issues pop up, some being actually serious problems? It's amazing how MKBHD just swept the QC issues of his latest Tesla review unit, saying "I just wanted to mention these issues, not that they really matter. I personally don't care about these things." Say what? MKBHD doesn't care about QC on his products? Since when? Since never is when. If the buttons on his smartphone don't click a certain way he complains. If the haptic feedback isn't just so he will take real notice. And hey, I agree. QC is important, especially when you're spending lots of money on these things.

    Tesla recently got 5 Chinese authorities’ invitations to “have a cup of tea” talk. Anybody know why? Tesla was promised that they do not need to transfer technology to Chinese manufacturers, the problem is that, they actually DID NOT transfer it. China allows Tesla manufacturing in Shanghai, hoping that it will help elevate Chinese electric car technology. Instead Tesla is now killing the Chinese electric car market. Tesla drop the Model Y price, further worsen the situation. One of the Chinese authorities suspects that Tesla uses the US military technology to spy on the Chinese driver and send the location and even audio/video feed back to the US. This is a huge deal. SpaceX’s Starlink will eventually bypass 5G and enable people to access the internet from wherever on earth, this further irritates Chinese authorities, because this will eventually break the Chinese Great Wall of internet blockage. Tesla will become America’s edition of Huawei, but 100 times worse. And Elon Musk will be the next Meng Wanzhou. Do you know what happened to Jack Ma and Alibaba? Do you know what will happen, if you dance with a bear? I’m not talking about Winnie the Pooh. 2021.3.5.5

    KEY POINTS. 1. Substandard Paint Quality, PATHETIC. 2. Faux Leather Seats, PATHETIC. 3. An over abundance of ALUMINUM front and rear, PATHETIC. The Model 3 exterior is about as durable as a Coke can! 4. 5 inch ground clearance, PATHETIC. The Model 3 bottoms out over speed bumps! 5. No SPARE TIRE or RUN FLAT TIRES, PATHETIC. WTF!!!!! 6. Poor overall workmanship, PATHETIC. This is a poorly designed, poorly equipped car for the price, that simply cannot be denied. Other than the software package, there is NOTHING premium about this car! The paint quality is absolutely LAUGHABLE! This vehicle cannot be run through an automatic car wash, unless you desire the paint to be riddled with scratches. Elon has delivered a STUNNING software package locked within a HORRENDOUS hardware package. I’ll pass until quality is VASTLY IMPROVED!

Those cars should be perfect when they leave especially for that kind of money. If you want to be world class you had better build like it.

All of the closest Tesla service centers are so busy they are scheduling 1-2 months out to get anything fixed. Just awful. Also, the looks of the Y is reminiscent of a New Beetle and old Prius and is rather fugly IMHO. My Jag has been a real delight and has been worthy of all the awards it has been given.
