Yet another Tesla Model 3 owner review with a few newly observed issues.
We haven't heard a whole lot of talk about the Model 3 sound system lately, or the windows. This is probably because it's not high on the list of super-critical concerns. People would rather report on a myriad of "fit and finish" issues, Autopilot faults, and a variety of system errors and strange sounds.
While we don't have our own Model 3, we've seen plenty, and we've heard enough about fit and finish issues. Most cars have some panel gaps, and the closer you look, the more you'll find. Whether the Model 3 is any better or worse off than any other vehicle is still yet to be determined.

In terms of strange sounds, it's hard to know what people are hearing and what might be the cause. It's not a whole lot different than taking your car in for service and then not being able to encounter the sound when the technician is present. We will say that in most electric cars, the incredible silence allows for much more to be heard, and people are surely listening when it comes to the Model 3. Hopefully, there are no issues that will jeopardize anyone's safety.
Potentially, we're going to hear about Tesla Autopilot issues and system error codes for a long time coming. While these cars are on the cutting-edge of technology, there are always bugs to be worked out. Tesla is continuously updating software, and that's not something that will go away. One would assume that after producing hundreds of thousands of Models 3s and dealing with all of these issues repeatedly, Tesla will have a much better handle on all of this in the future. We shall see ...
Okay, time to touch on the new video review. Apparently the sound system's "fade" resets itself every time you shut off the car. It also doesn't return to the last station when you start the car back up. He says that this problem was also present in his Model X, and it took Tesla forever to resolve it. There is also no Summon mode at this point, no web browser, and both the front and rear windows only roll down partially.
On the other side of the coin, the cup holders, center console, and storage compartments vastly exceed that of the S and X. The HOLD feature is also a definite plus.
