Our Model 3 is one month old. Here's some things to look out for when you get yours:

Thanks for posting, you make some good observations!

I am most interested in how Tesla addresses your "squawks", especially the taillight seal and front windows not rolling all the way down.

In the video, the sun visor appears a dramatically different color. Does it look that way in person?

Thanks again!

Thanks. The visor is the same color as the rest of the headliner. That's probably just my iPhone causing the problem.

Tesla is very slow to fix things in the sound system area. Took years before they added shuffle to the USB player. Any basic list of requirements for USB playback would include shuffle and they didn't have it for my first few years of ownership.

While they can (and do) add features to the car over time, some basics don't come or come very late. Meanwhile, you get Christmas lights on the X. Makes you wonder who is running Product there.

You mean it’s been there for 8 days? What are they doing to it?
Hope T≡SLA can get things fixed for you. Probably a good illustration of the value of starting with CA deliveries early on. Keep it up!

Did they supply you with a loaner?

Yes, it was in the shop for 8 days - now it's 9 days!!! They are supposed to be upgrading the suspension, fixing the tail lights and the steering wheel. And yes they gave me an older Model S loaner.
