Problem classification: Severe
Car owner: Brent Chaisson, Miscouche, Canada
The other issue deserved an entire article at InsideEVs. It was related to the superior border of the left front fender touching the body frame close to the A-pillar. That led to rust in many examples of the Model 3, such as Brent Chaisson’s. He is trading his Model 3 on a 2014 Model S. “I’ve heard from numerous Model S and Model X owners that they are treated much better than Model 3 owners.”
To check this, make sure there is enough space between the left A-pillar and the left fender for a card or a thick piece of paper to pass. If these parts touch, return the car to Tesla or make sure it repairs that.
