During his teardown of the Tesla Model 3, he compared its build quality to that of a 90s Kia, in a negative way. But now, after spending some time behind the wheel, he's got a completely different view of the Model 3.

When Sandy Munro of Munro & Associates discussed some major flaws found when tearing down the Model 3, he likened it to a 90s Kia, in terms of quality. Munro pointed out issues such as door handles are very difficult to use, requiring two hands in most situations. Door/window seals are haphazardly pieced together. High-effort trunk. The hood is difficult to open.

Of course, he was critically examining the car, but his comment of "These are flaws that we would see on a Kia in the ’90s or something...I can’t imagine how they released this," really irked a lot of Tesla owners.

Munro recently spent some drive time behind the wheel of the Tesla Model 3 and his take on the car is now entirely different. Yes, there are still build quality issues, but the Model 3 impresses on the drive side.

Eventually, Tesla will solve the build issues, so that won't be a problem. What matters most is that it's a pleasant car to drive, so Tesla got that right from the beginning. The same can't often be said of cars from some of Tesla's competitors.
