Model Y with massive flaws

Tesla's poor result is mainly due to the recently launched SUV Model Y, which, according to data from Consumer Report, is not proving to be particularly reliable. "The Model Y had some problems with the build quality of the body panels and the paintwork," said the organization. "Many owners reported misaligned body panels that needed repair and paintwork mismatch. One owner reported that there was residue of dust, dirt, and even hair on the paintwork." In October, "The Verge" also reported on the case of a Model Y owner, who was driving his vehicle on a highway, when the glass surface of the roof came off and was blown away within a few seconds.

Tesla was ranked 25th out of 29 car brands in Consumer Reports' reliability rankings . The Tesla Model S was once the darling of Consumer Reports, garnering high But last year, Consumer Reports said it could no longer recommend the Model S, because its predicted reliability was below average.

Model S graded

While the Model S was classified as the best-rated vehicle of all time in 2015, Consumer Report rated it this year with below-average reliability. The reasons for this were, according to "CNBC", problems with the air suspension, the main computer and the touchscreen controls. "We see a variety of problems with this car," said Jake Fisher of Consumer Report. "Its reliability fluctuates throughout its life cycle." The Model S was first released in 2012, but has been updated with updates from Tesla since then. Normally, the reliability of vehicles increases with age since they were first released, but according to "CNBC" reports, Tesla tends to improve its models mainly through software updates, but neglect the exterior equipment of its vehicles in terms of improvements. This trend seems to extend from Tesla to other vehicle manufacturers as well.

Last year, the Model X was also rated with below-average reliability. This assessment has now been renewed by the analysts. The organization therefore only recommends the Model 3 from the Tesla portfolio.

Known problems could lead to recall campaigns

According to "CNBC", many of the problems criticized by Consumer Reports have been known for a long time. Tesla is said to have offered refunds to owners of older S and X models who had to pay for repairs to the main computer themselves. Users should no longer be able to see any content on the touchscreen, and should have lost access to the temperature setting and reversing cameras. After the group informed affected customers about the repayment of repair costs, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration expanded a safety investigation into the problems with the main computers of the corresponding models, which were produced from 2012 to early 2018. Depending on the results of the road and vehicle safety authority, they could initiate a recall that covers around 159,000 vehicles.

Tesla competitors do better

Despite Tesla's poor results in the study, other manufacturers of electric vehicles scored points. "We continue to recommend many reliable electric vehicles such as the Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Kona Electric, which have lower running costs than traditional gas-powered vehicles," CNBC quoted Fisher as saying. "The initial issues we see with some of the latest EVs are still covered by warranty and may improve over time. We will continue to monitor EV reliability and cost over the long term as more models come out. " It should also be mentioned that Japanese vehicle manufacturers performed best in the latest report. Mazda took first place for the first time, followed by Toyota in second and the subsidiary Lexus in third. According to consumer reports, experience shows that Toyota cars are high up in the ranking. Buick, , Honda, and Hyundai follow in fourth to sixth place.
