There's no doubt, Tesla hasn't worked out all the bugs when it comes to quality control. Early on, we can blame Tesla haters or "one-off" cases. However, at this point, based on many reports from individuals, Tesla skeptics, Tesla fans, mainstream media, major automotive publications, etc., regularly point out Tesla's quality issues.
Over time, just like with the Model 3, Tesla will continue to improve the Model Y's overall quality. In the meantime, it's a fantastic car in many ways, though if you are a stickler for the details, and fit and finish issues are something that will eat you up inside, you should probably wait to buy a Model Y.
