Unfortunately, the quality control and churn are still an issue. The Fremont facility is running over capacity, and Tesla is definitely still sacrificing quality for quantity. This is why Tesla is expediting Texas and Germany factories instead of fixing the quality issues now. Tesla recognizes there is an issue, but instead of doing the right thing now for it’s customers, they are doing right by the shareholders instead."Terrible quality" and "churning out as many cars as it can, regardless of quality" are a bit out of date, today.
Unless they slow the line and make the necessary physical changes at Fremont, Tesla will continue to have the same issues. Its been over six months since Model Y production started. The line should have been paused, root-cause identified and fixed, and then restarted (this is modern manufacturing 101). We should be seeing near-zero issues with alignment, leaks, etc. but that’s not the case.
And by me pointing out Tesla has problems is in no way saying other companies don’t have their own. Everyone should strive for the A on the test. the excuse “ Well, Joe also got a C on the exam” is without merit. Just do better.
I wish you well with your Model Y, and may you get one with minimum quality issues.
PS -There is a big difference between belittling something (the bashing) and constructive criticism (meant to point out what must be corrected to improve).
