    Do these tesla's have manual door handles and windows? Maybe that should be standard!

    Hi I put the foam bag in the fender, and now my air suspension is making creaking noises, Im not sure if due to this or something else. can one of the experts comment on this?

    Signature Edition - naive Tesla fanboys get to pay extra for cars with poorer fit and finish and larger amount of defects than found in production cars. Only in America...

    The problem with Tesla fan boys is that they think their car is a phone - so they think it should be replaced every 2-3 years. Hence they think build quality to last 10 years doesn't matter. I still have my 9yo hyundai and have barely had any problems (only last year has the passenger window stopped working)

    The only real upside to having a Tesla is the supercharger network, and even that loses appeal now that 150kw chargers become available. Nah, think I'll stick to other brands. "it accelerates fast" is a bad proposition if the car breaks and is a nuisance all the time.

    Why your tesla is falling apart? Cuz it's an american car, easy answer. All american cars are poorly made with awful fit and finishes; for some reason, we can build space crafts and fighter jets, but we cannot make a half decent car. Leave car building to the Germans and Japanese.

    When youtubers start making Tesla repair/fix shops due to the lack of quality control, kinda raises a red flag. Teslas are cool cars but all these minor issues from factory due to bad quality control really is a huge turn-off. especially hearing how much these "small" repair and adjustments cost.....

    Only Tesla worth buying new to get a reasonable standard of QC is the Model S. It has been produced long enough though it's still a bit sketchy. Tesla still needs to increase durability/quality testing to match companies like Toyota and Porsche. Annnd clearly train assembly workers better.

    Reinforces my perception, what Tesla are good at they are very good at, what they are less good at they really suck at. The stuff the legacy OEMs know how to do. Tesla did employ, at the start, a lot of experienced people, but a lot left because they were told they didn’t know what they were on about.

    I live nxt to silicon valley ,ive seen the first Tesla's up close ms mostly, the misalignment was so noticeable on body gaps, glass, trim etc,was so bad for the price,now like 7 yrs later,this place is Tesla central, so i get to get up close to all the models,ms has slightly improved not much,x is just a mess for its price, the m3 is so off how could you even accept a car at delivery like this who ASSEMBLED this thing Ray Charles,this should not be happening this many years into manufacturing, we got beat at this crap in the 80s by japan,its American, Americans will by our crap,well we didn't,and Toyota took our money,so elon let this be a history lesson, sooner or later you better get your Q C under control, or we will buy a Japanese ev, quality over range,will be a huge factor in someone buying a another tesla at these prices.
