The Model 3 in question was clearly photographed in a Tesla store, so we can fairly assume it’s for sale or, at the very least, a production-spec demo model. If the quality control issues shown here were happening to any other automaker, like GM or Ford, people would rightly be going nuts. There’d be congressional hearings with demands for GM to return its bailout money, etc. Alright, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but you get the idea. Like any other new car rolling off a production line today, there’s no excuse for Tesla’s build quality issues. It doesn’t matter whether the Model 3 is the mainstream affordable model or the flagship, it needs to be done right.
