    If this is a sample of the build problems that you can actually see and hear, and he hits on this around 13:45, imagine those you can't. Tesla is for people who just want to be different without regards to logic.

    Bunch of minor problems which in time add up.But you help a great cause, the transport electrification. Tesla Motors is not a great manufacturer of cars for sure, and I don't know the qualifications of the workers on the assembly lines.I hope that Teslas S 2018 is a lot better than Teslas S 2016. Tesla 3 ? Remains to be seen , and probably those on blogs or forums hear a lot about Tesla 3 issues .Enjoy driving your Tesla and let's hope that you will not have any problems anymore.

    To be honest mate you are so patient , I can't call them minor problems when it comes to the price of your car , stop supporting a manufacturer who actually stealing your money , this price range can buy a good quality fancy car with no minor problems as you call them ( My car has made in Germany printed in every tiny component even.the ash tray , this is the quality comes from , for Tesla owners how many parts of your car it has an identity or shows where it's made in ?

    Great video and I commend your specific and articulate review about the litany of issues you had. Why did Tesla just not give you a brand new car? There is a lemon law that can allow for this but it is good business to do this. It is unacceptable that Tesla did not do this. You have helped me affirm that my decision to lease my 3rd Chevy Volt instead of buying the Tesla 3. Tesla May be a great car when the company and its founder mature. Good luck resolving this tragedy. JB

    • Gur814

      This is such a silly argument. You're assuming that I don't appreciate the good aspects of the car or the fact that I can even afford it. I can appreciate the good while also criticising the bad. It's not all or nothing. I even say as much in the video. This was a video specifically about the flaws. I have other videos where I talk about the good stuff.

    I'm not trying to offend you, but for a car to travel upwards of 300 miles on one charge and for it also be able to drive its self to the destination on hand. I can let a few "mis-aligned panels and a few rattling noises" slip. Stop nick picking this car to death. Tesla is young and they will learn to correct there mistakes. Good video. Just my opinion.

    • Erick Wardwell
      Erick Wardwell 5 days ago

      +Gur814 yeah I was exaggerating but in theory and certainly the future this car will go beyond 300 miles and will be able to drive itself. Thanks.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  5 days ago +1

      A few corrections: This car goes 215 miles and can't drive itself yet.

      I see your point though. Tesla is a young manufacturer and will make more mistakes than an average auto manufacturer. Unfortunately those mistakes will be hard to forgive for the average consumer and Tesla will need to do better in order to succeed in the long run. I hope they can get there but it's worrying.

    Tesla will be left behind by other companies if it carries on like this.

    Ever wonder if the companies that make parts for tesla are being paid by GM, Ford to produce faulty parts.? Or because Tesla electric cars & mechanics are so new at this stage they are learning as they go. Who knows. I always buy something thats been on the market for awhile before i buy so costs come down & they worked out the bugs. I would like to see our generation move away from 20th century coal and oil to bigger better things.

  • Alef Bet

    Watched two videos on Tesla cars, I've determined they're extremely cheaply made with Low quality manufacturing and parts. Why buy low quality built car with cheap parts which fail quickly for serious big money?????
    A used good quality well built car would be far less problems and far greater value for ANYONE'S money and value.
    NO THANKS Tesla you can keep your junk quality over priced defective autos.
    This gent states these are minor problems while under warranty. However one buyer explained once warranty ends , more and more issues occurred which got worse causing more electronic damage to wiring mirrors lighting leaking and more. He stated he wanted to junk the Tesla as it was non stop problems a LEMMON or Hugo auto that failed due to low quality cheap built car which was known for non stop problems.
    This chap is going to be very sad when his warranty is over. The parts IMO were built to fail quickly as soon ( though as seen before) as warranty ends.
    DO NOT BUY A TESLA IS MY ADVISE.

    I don't care how much money you have or advanced you are at computer cad, it takes years to work out all the possible flaws in such a complex machine as a

      Other automakers do have EVs but if you think they're on par with Tesla you're delusional.
      The Supercharger networks is the biggest differentiator. I need to be able to travel for work. I can't do that with any other EV since the current DC fast charging network is bad. Only Teslas can do reliable long distance travel without any headache.

    I know this was just for demonstration purposes but I hope you don’t regularly slam the door when closing it like you just did in this video. Slamming like that is a guaranteed way to ruin doors on the most expensive of cars to a Toyota Corolla.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  17 days ago

      I wasn't slamming them. Watch part 2. Regardless, a car door should be built well enough to handle the occasional slam. I've owned many cars and never had trouble with doors that fall to pieces within a few months of ownership. Even if I slammed them every time this would still be indicative of bad quality.

  • JJ Sevins
    JJ Sevins 17 days ago

    Tesla is trying to change the world. They're not GM, Toyota, Mercedes... they're a start-up... the first American car manufacturer in the last 100 years. Yes, the cars are expensive and yes there are little imperfections... I own two Teslas, and I have these little problems too. The difference between me and this guy... I don't care that much and just tolerate it, because I believe that I'm helping change the world. Climate change is one of the biggest existential threats to humanity... I can put up with a slight rattle from the door.

  • Akin Khoo

    the one thing i don't understand is why people think tesl;a core capability is in technology, tesla does not manufacture most of their part, i am quite certain they just bought some off the shelf LCD and stick it in the car. the only technology that tesla actually made on their own, is the battery. the rest of the car is actually quite cheap to make and therefore in elon's eye, not worth spending money to R&D in. and I kinda agree, that is not the core of tesla... there is a reason why BYD that made electric car in china is also a battery company, the core technology is not IT, it is the battery...

    • Gur814

    • Gur814
      Gur814  19 days ago

      You can't hear the engine much in modern internal combustion engine vehicles. Road noise plays a bigger role than engine noise. Our Accord is quieter than the Tesla when not accelerating because it had less road noise.

    This is why you should not be complaining about every little dot. The car is in best shape possible when it is factory asembled. After all your complains and repairs car become used and taken apart multiple times. What else would you expect if not more issues?

    As an investor in Tesla, this is all pretty bad. However I'm thinking, surely customers know that these cars are rushed and not perfect but are willing to persevere through it since the cars are overall amazing. Probably the worrying thing is how much money all of these servicing issues are costing the company. Surely it's ridiculously expensive to keep fixing all these issues.
    Side note: Can you imagine owning one of these in 10 years? The problems will be crazy.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  21 day ago

      That's what's confusing to me. If Tesla just invested more in quality control at the factory they would likely save money by not having to service these small issues on every car.

    Resale value is my biggest worry on any electric car, but that is more related to the battery life, not quality on the rest of the car components, so worrying that your Tesla has so many issues. I have to admit any rattle issue I would try and fix myself, but when you pay a fortune for the car and it's under warranty the garage should be able to address these issues for you.

I was just very surprised when hearing it as these cars are worth a small fortune and would not expect . Unless it was 100.000 plus .

      No worries. It's hard to detect sarcasm on the internet. Especially with the amount of "first world problems" style comments I get about this video. Sorry my sarcasm detector wasn't in tune with your comment.
      I agree about simpler cars. Electric cars in theory should be simpler than their internal combustion counterparts. I suppose Tesla isn't the best example of that. Hopefully more manufacturers start building them so we can get some super reliable ones. It'll also push Tesla to focus more on quality.

    • RainMaker
      RainMaker 24 days ago +1

      Sorry, my pathetic attempt at sarcasm. I got the point. Teslas are not what they seem to be marketed as. New technology goes through production phases to become perfected. Kidding about the jerk comment and I do actually drive a nice car today. Kidding about the Pinto thing to. Seriously, I prefer older and simpler vehicles due to the fact they are less expensive and much easier to work on however, I would like to trade in my current, gas guzzling Mustang for something similar to a Tesla.

    This TVclipr is brainwashing you to believe that temperature causes things to expand and contract. It is a conspiracy against Musk to disprove his Hyperloop! The fact that there is a huge differential temperature and vacuum on the inside and outside of the Hyperloop will cause no expansion or contraction in the materials. Therefore, no connecting tubes will need expansion/contraction zones. All product reviewers like this one are part of the anti-Musk anti-SpaceX conspiracy trying to stop technological progress that will bring us amazing technologies! /Ultimate Troll :)

    Happy with my gasolene Hyundai.. 2 of them over 14 years, ZERO issues. You should shove that service invoice up Elon Musks ass and get rid of that electric lemon ASAP.

    to be honest most of those problems would have been even TRIED to be fixed by most other manufactures. At least they are trying. At least they are leaving a loaner. these are all things that I've never had before.
    People are a little hyper sensitive to things on these cars and reporting things people wouldn't usually notice or report. Things like the trim and rattles are quite common in cars of all brands/price points.

      I made a part 2 for this video that sort of touches on this point if you're curious. Long story short, the results are mixed. True Delta, which takes data from real owners, shows poor quality on Tesla as a whole. Most issues are small trim issues like I've experienced. Consumer Reports is a bit more favorable. They rank the Model X as poor quality but the Model S as slightly above average with improved quality in recent years. Links to both of these sources can be found in that video's description.
      I can also give more anecdotal evidence. I'm a member of a Tesla club and an EV club. I know dozens of Tesla owners and dozens of owners of other EVs. I'm pretty well versed in this community. One of the main topics of discussion among Tesla owners that I know is build quality. Tesla owners seem mostly content to put up with an increased amount of issues because the cars are so good in every other area. My situation does seem to be an outlier though. Almost everyone has at least a few issues and from my personal experience Teslas do seem to have more issues compared to most other manufacturers.
      But like you said, this is anecdotal and you are welcome to disagree with that. I can only speak on my experience. Thank you for being able to respectfully disagree. That seems rare on the internet lately.

      +Gur814 hey agree to disagree there as we are both giving anecdotal evidence and i doubt there are real statistics to go off of. And hey you have a tesla and i dont so *shrug* have a good one!

    • Gur814
      Gur814  24 days ago

      People are definitely more sensitive, I agree with you there. Part of that is the spotlight that is always shining on Tesla. That tends to highlight the good and the bad. For every video pointing out the flaws, like this one, there are dozens pointing out the good parts.
      I disagree that this is normal. I've owned 4 new cars in my lifetime. The Tesla has been the worst experience by far with regards to build quality. A few small issues are normal on any car. No car I've owned has been perfect but sadly the Tesla had more issues than the other 3 new cars combined by a factor of about 5.

      +Gur814 haha i agree it isnt right. Just disagree that it isnt normal. Then again its just anecdotal anyways. You cant deny people are more sensitive in general about tesla though. You dont see thousands of videos about the little normal problems in honda accords or other cars in the same price point (edit comparing model 3 to them not the s :p)

    • Gur814
      Gur814  24 days ago

      Nah, we had a wind noise on our Honda and the dealer worked hard to get it fixed under warranty. I also had a bumper misalignment on a new Chevy and the dealer fixed it without any fuss. It just depends on the dealer. Some are great and will fix most reported issues.
      I do commend Tesla for their hard work on trying to fix these issues. The service teams have done their best and I always appreciate easy access to loaners. This deserves praise, but it is also the expected level of service on any new car. People shouldn't settle for less from any manufacturer.

      Yes, everything will wear down over time. That's the problem though. The Tesla is wearing down far faster than any other car.

    The more these companies put electronic boards and circuitry in the car, and the more our car grows dependent on these circuit boards and sensors, the more problems are going to pop up from time to time and make our life miserable. Electronics has its kinks when it has a brush with harshness of nature, be it rain or snow etc. They are not as robust as mechanical linkages or even simple electrical connections. I like cars that has basic electronics in it, nothing fancy like we see today in tesla cars.

    There are rattles that are normal on a car and an electric car is more silent .I wonder if he's not too focused on any noise made by the car and ask for things that are part of a car.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  28 days ago

      No they're not. I've never had a car that rattled like this. Not even my 15 year old Chevy Cavalier sounded like this inside.

    Maybe you are a little over sensitive to the rattles but it is reasonable to expect that a car at this price point not have any rattles.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  23 days ago

      Every car I've ever owned had rattles in some capacity. The Tesla has about 5 times more than all of those cars combined.
      Most modern cars are virtually silent inside when not under heavy acceleration. The lack of engine noise doesn't make rattles any more noticeable. We also own a 2017 Accord and it is quieter than the Tesla when not accelerating because it has less road noise.

    • Geordo1960

      I’ve heard to the quietness of this car does amplify any small squeaks and rattles.

    Seems unfortunate. Ever thought of asking for a no frills vehicle with no high technology? And as for the loose parts: loctite? And you know if loctite isnt enough, you could use gasket silicone. And if that doesn't work, well maybe JB kwick or jb weld? Dude, perhaps you should suggest that they look at these alternatives. I know JB is extreme, but so is your problems.

    • Gur814
      Gur814  24 days ago

      The technology isn't the problem with this car. That has all worked very well. It's the construction quality causing issues. One of the technicians brought up loctite once. They never did use it. I'll look into the other options. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Get 3 Chevy Volts for price of the S. The build quality is better and it has no range anxiety. You're still driving electric; you just need to recharge more often if you want to stay electric, and the car is not as big or quick. Still want an EV? Get 3 Bolts for the price of an S, and get the same electric range! Do 95% of your charging at home, overnight. You can charge on the road, but not at Supercharger station, and not as quickly, and you have to pay for it.
