Detailers Show Tesla Model Y Paint Is As Thin And Defective As Model 3
It could have been such a step-change in this aspect…
After our reports on the Model 3 paint job quality, we thought Tesla would invest a lot of time and effort into getting it right for the Model Y. Unfortunately, this is not what the first units of the electric CUV have revealed so far. The latest case comes from Ryan Shaw. He took his car to a Tesla Service Center for repair in the first days with it. Then, he hired detailers in Los Angeles to help him protect the paint and was impressed with the number of issues it still had. Just check out the paint thickness: it is very uneven.
This is not the first time we hear about that. The first report about this came from the Finnish Chamber of Commerce. Munro & Associates also measured the paint and showed massive variations, which you can see in the gallery below.
