There have been countless issues regarding the Tesla Model 3 and its production, but now it’s hitting the streets, the wait and issues are starting to pay off. All the reviews are singing its praises, so what could go wrong now?
Well, it seems as though there is one more problem that Elon an Tesla have to counter. The car doesn’t seem to like the rain…

It’s not something that you’d think to ask at the dealer, but the car can’t seem to keep its rear bumper attached when it starts raining. And if you think it’s a fluke, take a look at another tweet from another customer.

The public are blaming the protective cloth underneath the car. While this cloth shielding is there to protect the car from water and debris, it looks as though it’s in fact deflecting the water up into the bumper forcing it off.
Tesla has released the following statement in regards to the issue:
‘We’re setting an extremely high bar for Model 3, and what happened in this situation is not how we build our cars. We’re investigating the issue to understand what caused it, and we are contacting our customers to resolve this and ensure they are satisfied.’
Would this put you off buying a Tesla?
