Tesla Model 3 under a microscope

As production numbers increase and more consumers finally get their hands on their long-ago ordered Model 3, reviews, comments and complaints are pouring in.

At the moment, most seem to enjoy the Model 3’s drive and other features however there’s a large number of people that are having problems with the car. A while back, we reported on the team that undertook a road trip across North America that quickly ran into some serious issues.

One media outlet made their way to a company that specialises in tearing down cars for competitive benchmarking studies. In very little time, the specialist comes across a number of issues that are unusual for modern cars.

Now, although these matters may seem unimportant for the most part, they might be a sign that early production Model 3s are not exactly up to snuff. If you’re on the waitlist for a 3, you should be fine by the time your is built. If you’re shopping for a Model 3 and are not in a rush, best to wait a good while before putting a deposit down, just to be safe.
