After 5 months and almost 4000 miles I’m convinced that Tesla’s reputation for substandard build quality is well deserved. I’ve filed a service request about once a month since taking delivery of a Model Y. While a fun car to drive, it has fit and finish issues I never had in the 15 years I owned my Honda Fit. The saving grace of Tesla is the ability to request service through the phone app and have most issues resolved via mobile service (a tech in a Model S drives to you and does the repair at your home). If the other car manufactures ever figure out their battery and efficiency issues I’d certainly consider an alternative.
