In recent years, Tesla has boosted its output of completed cars to be sold in the global marketplace. As a result, some drivers have noticed a change in what can only be described as the quality control standards (via Road and Track). Tesla cars are coming off the line with scratched or chipped paint, problematic electronics, and even trim work that isn’t completely aligned or cut properly to fit.
Quality control is important for any kind of product that a consumer might purchase. But naturally, the more expensive a product is, the higher a buyer’s expectation will be that every little detail has been accounted for in the finished product. Tesla standards for the Model X (and for many other vehicles that the brand produces) have become somewhat lax as of late, according to Road and Track. This has led to a big question mark moving forward for those thinking of investing in a Tesla Model X. This issue may not continue long into the future, but for now, concerns over the quality of Tesla’s output remain.
Another related issue lies in the fact that Tesla drivers have noticed sudden losses in power while using their vehicles on the roadway (via NotebookCheck). Whether power loss affects your ability to drive or control the car while moving, or just the entertainment system, this problem is a significant one that speaks volumes about the standard of production across Tesla’s range — not just in the Model X.
