Hold off on buying a Model Y – Several Quality Control Issues

Tesla released their compact SUV, Model Y a bit early. Customers are now getting their deliveries, but are met with several quality control issues. We recommend holding off a few months until Tesla can work through all these quality control issues.

Here is a March 25th Delivery

I got mine on 3/25 and going to send it to Fremont service center tomorrow. Here are the issues that I found so far. Hope you guys don’t have to go through these like me.1. Trunk won’t lock after auto close. About 75% failure rate.2. Can’t log in my account on YouTube due to browser not secure.3. Not able to charge with L2 charger. Happened twice already. The issue went away right after I plug in a supercharger.4. Lots of stain on the over head interior. 5. Touch screen went crazy one time. Fixed by resetting the system.
