What? I only have a TM3 and no other experience, but my #8000 something has been perfect. Are you just referring to the first couple of one model?
First couple? Haha no. I would say more like first couple quarters of production. At best.

I had a Model Y that was around #50,000 off the line. It had some pretty bad panel gaps, some rattles, and mismatched brake lights (one old style and one new). Judging by other owners on the webs, my experience was typical.

Oh, so all stuff that is covered by warranty service, I don't count those, that's the GOOD part of buying new, you getta take the car back and COMPLAIN about stuff. I was missing a screw on the bottom, and I had a speed bump squeak, but those were fixed including them washing my car each time while it was in and loaning me a FUSC Model S to drive while they worked on my car. I loved that period.

How could it possibly be typical? How many cars could have been made when they were swapping part types?
