Tearing Into Tesla's Model 3

  • Published on Feb 2, 2018
  • A lot has been written about Tesla’s Model 3. But those reports mostly come from EV enthusiasts and owners. By all accounts they love the car. But so far no one with deep experience in design, engineering and manufacturing has evaluated it, at least no publicly. That’s why we were excited to get an invitation from Sandy Munro to visit his shop and take a look at a Model 3 that he’s about to test and tear down for a competitive benchmarking study. And Sandy found a number of issues that he really doesn’t like about the car, which he pointed out to Autoline’s John McElroy. Take a look.

    The gaps on my electric focus were so inconsistent that the hood barely closed. If you haven’t seen it since the 70s you’ve been blind for a long time. Ever tried to close the trunk on an x3 without the power assist? Better get ready to hang on it. Btw, fire departments train on stuff like that for a reason. You don’t have to know where to cut, they do. And...they do.

    looking at the manual (link from some other comments) www.tesla.com/firstresponders?redirect=no there is the way to open the rear doors, or front hood. don't own Tesla just trying to understand how objective are these guys, hence the whole clip feel biased. every car maker have their own way of doing emergency mechanisms, worth to read the manual in first place.

    Seems like if the accident is of such severity cutting to remove the hood wouldn't be an issue. The access he's showing is primarily for a dead battery to access the fronk. I can't tell you how many ICE car fires i've seen that inhibit the ability to get to the mechanical release inside the vehicle. Plus in that case you not only have that issue but you have a combustion engine under the hood rather than storage.

    How to control the masses - make them fear. All they talked about was accident this, death that, kids don't matter etc etc. Tesla has been making cars for what? 10 years?. Please think back to the cars 10 years after the invention of the ICE. The facts are that Electric cars (not just Tesla) are coming, they are quicker, more efficient and better for the environment (mostly). Whether you like it or not. I'm sure many horse owners were outraged at the invention of the motor car but hey - no-one misses the sound of horses hooves. With some minor tweaking and improvements there will be nothing to complain about other than ooohhhhhh I don't like touch screens and I want more buttons boohooooo. If you go over any car closely there will be issues - instead of fighting back and just complaining we should be embracing and providing solutions. This is a video of two grumpy old men who are facing a new technology and judging against what is already present. Look at it from the point of view of a tech company that has decided to make cars for the last ten years - the fact that they have gotten this far should be celebrated.

    The power actuator pop-out/jump box leads are actually for non-emergency access to replace a failed 12-volt battery, or boot a car with failed 12 volt to put it in tow mode (neutral with no brake). There are many other cars that provide similar jump points because they have 12 volt batteries that are otherwise not directly accessible. As far as accident response, the impact sensors are, depending on the type of collision, programmed to trigger all the doors to unlock and the frunk (front trunk) is supposed to pop, as well as disabling the main contactor to the traction pack in the event of said accident. If emergency services needs access to the 12 volt, or interior of the car, in a manor other than using the normal door handles and access means, then power hydraulic tools will be used to rip the car open.. just like would be done on any other vehicle involved in a crash warranting forcible access. A fireman's axe is also pretty effective at opening that hood by leveraging the pick at the latch point.. just FYI. Any new vehicle that comes out with new engineering people cite safety.. news flash, any good emergency response services are updating their training periodically. Humans, by majority, just tend to dislike things that they aren't familiar with. Thus, will go out of their way to give you a multitude of reasons why it won't work or tell you what's wrong with it based on their own arbitrary standard, which may or may not have any valid reasoning, and may or may not actually make any difference to anyone a generation after they've died off. For example when your standard 4 & 6 banger sedans moved the 12 volt battery to the trunk, or in some cases into the passenger compartment UNDER the rear seat. People cried and whinged about it, now it's fairly standard, and modern cars are still just as difficult to work on as they'd been before the change. For a genuine whinge, In one car I owned the battery was in the front bumper.. technically the "bumper cover". One had to take the front wheel off to get the battery out for replacement, and this car had a knack for killing a battery every three years without any warning that it was about to go. It SUCKED when a hit & run driver smashed the battery under the bumper leaving me stranded in -17c weather (Thanks allot Chrysler! Nice engineering.). I'd have killed to have a battery in the trunk or under the seat like the other cars had.. or even under the hood. But, in any case those cars with "alternate battery locations" were the first to have "cut points" for emergency services. Tesla isn't new in this. What Tesla is doing with model 3 which is different as far as the cut points are concerned, they have provided not one, but TWO, so if emergency services can't access the front cut point, say.. because the front of the car is wedged under the rear of a bus for example, then they can cut the back one, or vice versa. That is thoughtful design. I'd take a model 3 with the "flaws" this guy cited over the STUPID engineering in many vehicles I've owned. Tesla vehicles arn't to everyone's taste and that's fine.. I know I won't own another Chrysler.

    Amazing what a difference a few months can make. After getting under the skin of the Tesla Model 3 and tearing into its technology, Sandy Monro has done a one-eighty. After you watch this video, you'll want to watch this followup... tvclip.biz/video/pAS-yjWj9DY/video.html&t=219s
    The Model 3 in this video was a very early 2017 example, likely in the first few hundred produced by Tesla. The Model 3 build quality has come a long way since then.

    Tesla cars are garbage. Tesla will die and be long forgotten. They are extremely poorly built with zero quality or fit and finish. No independent automaker has been able to gain a foot hold and compete with the big three. Elon Musk has always hoped that a major automaker would scoop up tesla. Tesla has zero technology and used 18650 cells for battery packs. Once general motors is running full speed on electric vehicles tesla will be a obscurity.

    I'll be as unbiased as I can be. The fire department complain about how to cut the car it's something new to me.. I own an Audi Q5 and I don't see even a sticker that shows how to cut the car in an emergency. The door handle is simply his preference. I don't have a problem with it and he's exaggerating if he has to use two hands to open it..
    most cars don't even have a secondary way to open the door. The M3 has an electrical button and a mechanical so you have redundancy. What else do you want? The ONLY real issue in this whole video is the QA problem with the gap. It is my understanding and based on owner's experiences that the QA issues are being solved as their production ramps up and improves. You're talking a company that was born less than 10 years ago compared to companies that are 100 years old! The funny thing is, Tesla came up with insanely beautiful cars that are destroying every other car in the market in most tests (acceleration, safety, environmental friendliness, etc, etc) and most old school companies (aka Ford, GM, BMW, etc) that have had a huge advantage experience wise, they are losing that edge to this brand new company... riddle me that!

    It is sad that a Modern Car Company upstart did no learn from mistakes of a hundred plus years of MFG before them.
    The death of Tesla once the novelty wears off will be the very thing that powers it, lithium ion battery pack.
    The warranty on a new car is 8 years on the battery pack. The quoted cost to replace one with a new one is $39,000. Even if you mass produce the Batteries, the cost may drop by a third to $27k but that fact right there kills the used car market for Middle to lower class buyers.

    I don't mined his criticism, criticism is good so they can fix shit, but the first thing is bitching about is the Hood Latch, many other cars have the same thing BMW i8, other Tesla Model-S & X, Porsches cars, so this is not a revelation of any sort. But bitching for the sake of Bitchin' is just annoying.
    U wanna see idiotic and illogical control solutions?, test drive the new Volvo S60, its a beautifully finished car, but Christ Almighty everything in it is backwards.
    I wanna see what they say about the volvo instrument cluster, and overcomplicated Supercharged/turbocharged engine.
    The second thing he bitches about is the door handles, which are easy to open by the way (both overhanded with Left arm and underhanded or palm up with right arm) same as on aston martin and same as on lambo huracan, again nothing new, this has been around for years, just cause ur to dimm to turn ur hand over is not an excuse.
    Then he bitches about rear doors not having emergency opening in an "accident", I hate to break this to u "Bob", but there are other cars with same problems, for example Mazda RX-8 & BMW i3 which both have suicide doors that can not be opened without first opening the front doors, so in an accident those doors can be permanently stuck especially when the subframe is bent or with a side collision.
    So again, did they bitch about those cars, probably not.
    After that he bitches about "high effort" to close the trunk lid, HAHAHA wow.
    Try closing the hood on a Dodge Ram or a Ford F150 when ur 5'6"-5'7" BOB and see how easy that is.
    This idiot is just nitpicking standard shit as if its the end of the world.
    How about u get to the real problems "u found" or maybe u didn't so u had to invent bull shit like this.
    These sack nuts have been on tesla's ass since the beginning just like a damn tick on a dogs ass.
    When Chrysler's 300c had electrical problems and engines would catch fire, where were u?, when Ford was to cheap to put a decent tire on an Explorer so it would not delaminate and kill people in roll overs, here were u?,when Toyota's throttle bodies jammed and killed people, where were u?, when GM ignition switches would turn of the engine under operation on the highway causing u to take a dive in the ditch at 70mph where were u? with ur criticisms.
    See its easy to criticism u dumb monkey, how about u try to find a better solution and submit that to the manufacturer to help them instead.
    And least we forget they used to bitch at Japanese and German car owners with stupid "Buy American" stickers and "keep or jobs".
    Well guess what, Ford's cars are barely 40% american parts and most are put together in Mexico (very american by the way), and VW/GM/Chrysler got so many Chinese parts in them im surprised the nav doesn't talk back in Mandarin to the user.
    Tesla IS an American car company &their cars parts are over 80% manufactured in America and more and more going toward 100%all in house,
    so wheres ur American Pride assholes? You wanna pick and choose whats convenient to u.
    Where was ur mouth when GM sold Allison transmission losing us thousands of jobs buddy?
    Where was ur mouth when Ford moved Focus production to China, or moving Electric cars production from Michigan to Mexico loosing us countless jobs?
    The Big 3 would like u to believe that they're cars are 90% made in USA but thats only 3-4 cars out of how may that each of them makes thats actually that way, only the "most profitable" are made here, the rest is outsourced to God knows where just to pinch and extra dime out of each car.
    We lost so many jubs to this shit practice that they allowed to these multi national idiots.
    U wanna see the results of ur bull shit?, drive through ur own Detroit ghost town, or stroll through Washington with thousands of homeless.

    Let’s think back to the early 1900s when the car revolution began. People were scared of them, and pointed out every little flaw they could. This is a new era, and people still do not want to change. Yes the Tesla has flaws like any new car company does. In due time, they will perfect their vehicles and EVs will be the norm, and our old horse drawn buggies will be obsolete. Now is not the right time for me to buy a Tesla, but I have been watching, they are getting better and soon will be the right time.

Besides, electric cars can contaminate 3 times more because all the lithium in their batteries, they do not produce CO but they leave a heavy LiMnO2 print in the enviroment, besides the potencial fire that can occur in the case of an accident. This tecnology is just in its first steps, it will evolve and we will in the future see more dependable, safe and good electric cars.

    To be fair they made some very good points. Tesla build quality is poor at times (usually the first batches). Many said the back seat passengers can crawl out the front. But this is only true if the front doors aren’t stuck. Many model X and model S owners have complain about rattling noises and poor paint finishes. Also these guys are not done with the car. There is another video where they took it for a spin and was super impressed by the drivetrain. Munro even commented that if the build quality was on par with Japanese manufactures the model 3 will be a car no one can ignore.

    And here comes more "ICE fan boys" attacking anything that isn't obnoxiously loud, poisons the biosphere and doesn't run on over-priced, fossilized dinosaur shit (and only actually uses >20% of it).
    You guys are absolutely pathetic.. You cling to your ancient, prehistoric technology like you cling to your little, shriveled penises when you're about to get kicked in the crotch. And that's exactly what Tesla is doing to your dinosaur auto industry and your shitty dinosaur companies; they're doing things completely differently (which you all clearly can't stand) and kicking all of them right in the balls in the process. So, naturally, they're going to send in their lackys and post video after video (all of which have been thoroughly debunked) about how horrible Tesla's are.. right they're soo horrible, that's why they're officially the safest cars in the world and broke every safety rating system, which none of your shitty ICE vehicles have ever done in over 100 years of existence. They're so horrible that 500k people preordered one without ever test driving it.. And they're only 14 years old and just getting started!
    So, while you're watching some old geezer with his obsolete experience (who probably doesn't even know how to use a smart phone) tinker with a car that is beyond his comprehension, I was reading yet another lovely piece about one your ICE fan boy companies that's still fucking up and still can't go one year without a huge recall:
    money.cnn.com/2018/03/14/news/companies/ford-steering-wheel-recall/index.html
    Ford has been around since the 1800's and they still suck at making cars, despite over a hundred years of practice. I can't wait to see what bullshit the ICE fan boys come up with to explain why this recall is perfectly acceptable, and yet, they sit here pick at the Model 3 and call anything they don't agree with/understand a flaw.. You guys are fucking pathetic. Ever wonder why recalls from major car companies like Ford (who's steering wheels are literally falling off) wouldn't make headline news.. hmm.. I bet if even one steering wheel fell off of even one single Tesla, there'd be wall-to-wall coverage 24 hours a day.
    Bottom line: Tesla is winning and they're going to continue to win. No amount of ICE fanboy videos will ever change that so get over it. I can't wait until I get my Model 3!
