What are some common problems with the Tesla Model 3?

I’m a huge Elon Musk fan. I love SpaceX and I love Tesla. It wasn’t until recently that I finally had enough money to buy a used one. Because the brand is so new, I was worried that I might find some issues with a used Model 3. Are there any common problems with the Tesla Model 3?

Gaining average reliability ratings from Consumer Reports, the Tesla Model 3 is about as reliable as any other car on the road. However, due to the relative infancy of the company and build problems, the Model 3 can suffer from many issues. Here are some common Tesla Model 3 problems:
  • Paint blemishes fresh off of the assembly line and premature rusting
  • Total failure of the touch screen, which can render the car inoperable
  • Faulty locks that can’t be opened, even with the keycard or app
  • High-voltage controller failure, which can cause power loss while driving
Because of the high-end components in the Tesla Model 3, the price to insure one is notoriously expensive. Before you buy a policy, make sure to use the Jerry app to get affordable coverage you didn’t know was possible.
