Tesla’s new Model X plagued by quality problems

tesla_xIt appears as though Tesla’s new Model X is having some growing pains.

Several reports suggest the electric car company’s SUV are suffering from several quality issues.

From doors that don’t open to finicky windows and electronics, Tesla’s latest production vehicle is drawing complaints form its drivers.

A report in the Wall Street Journal quotes at least one woman as saying her doors have problems opening and closing.

Another driver with a problematic Model X was quoted in the WSJ as saying that when he called his local Tesla shop to get his broken doors repaired, he was told that there would be a two week wait because Tesla was reportedly “overloaded with repair” appointments.

Not good for a vehicle that’s supposed to be the company’s biggest volume seller, a vehicle that’s already been delayed to get to this point.

Don’t forget – Tesla may be known for its fast, connected cars but not necessarily quality. Consumer Reports says the Tesla Model S has so many problems that despite it’s good driving manners, they can’t recommend it. 

Let’s see how quality improves as Model X deliveries go up, and whether they’re able to work out any issues with the upcoming Model 3.
