Tesla’s reputation is in jeopardy. The company specialized in the design and manufacture of luxury electric cars has been the target of harsh criticism in recent months due to sudden changes in its quality processes, which have left more than one user dissatisfied.

One of Tesla’s most recent failures has been in the Model 3, and more than one user has sued the company because the paint ‘melts’ in the rain.

Tesla has received several lawsuits in which users request financial compensation for damage to the paint of the Tesla Model 3

Read on to learn more about this lawsuit:

  • A serious flaw in Tesla’s design has caused great disappointment to users of the Tesla Model 3
  • Apparently the paint on the luxury electric car comes off easily after a while and is not resistant to rain.
  • The company has already received at least one lawsuit asking for damages in compensation for the poor quality of the vehicle

In recent days, it was announced that Tesla is facing a new lawsuit related to the quality of the paint of the Tesla Model 3.

Among the complaints is, in addition to other things, that lpaint is not resistant to cold climatesTherefore, the owners of this Tesla vehicle model seek financial compensation to repair the damage caused by this failure.

The complaints come mainly from cities where the winter is harsher and where users must put salt in the streets.

This has caused some Tesla Model 3 users to report rapid paint deterioration, especially on the underside of cars.

To the surprise of many, Tesla has not denied the allegations, although it has not fully admitted them either. In a statement, the company stated that:

“In some regions where salt, sand or gravel is used to improve road conditions in the winter, we will provide an All Weather Protection Kit at no cost to help protect the paint. It includes the installation instructions. “

Québec user sues for damage to Model 3

It was in June that it was revealed that a Québec Tesla user sued the company because it refused to repair the paint damage on his vehicle.

Jean-Fraçois Bellerose, user of the Tesla Model 3, sued the company led by Elon musk because you did not receive a favorable response to your request for vehicle repair.

Bellerose’s lawsuit was due to the fact that he noticed rapid deterioration in the paintwork during the first winter he used his Tesla vehicle.

However, upon contacting the company, he found that the failure was not within the model warranty. Faced with the refusal, the user decided to fix it on his own, only to be notified that the repair of the damage amounted to more than 4,000 Canadian dollars.

When he did not get a response from Tesla, he decided to file a legal claim and invite the users of the Model 3 to expose the poor quality of the paint.

The user requests the repair of damages due to the poor quality of the paint

In the lawsuit, Tesla is asked to pay the difference between the real value of the vehicle and the devaluation of the same due to the failure, in addition to an extra 500 Canadian dollars to each user affected by this situation.

The flaws in the paint of the Tesla Model 3 are considered obvious, since there have been several users who report the same situation around the world.

Tesla decides to change its return policy ‘no question’

Recently, Tesla decided to change its ‘no question’ return policy for 7 days after purchase.

In previous years, Tesla offered a 2-4 year warranty on the S and X models; now, the company has made the corporate decision to update its policies.

Among the updates is that now Tesla only offers a guarantee for up to one year of use or 10,000 kilometers, which is a huge difference to what it previously offered.

In a statement unveiling this policy update, Tesla executives detail what the changes are and what benefits users still enjoy.

They explained that “Tesla used vehicles are covered for 4 years or 50,000 miles in the Basic Limited Vehicle Warranty. After this warranty expires, the Used Vehicle Limited Warranty provides additional coverage for one year or 10,000 miles. Should the Basic Vehicle Limited Warranty expire, the Used Vehicle Limited Warranty will provide coverage for one year or 10,000 miles, starting from delivery of the vehicle. “

Warranty changes, a surprise to older users

Tesla’s ‘no question’ return policy, rather than an attractive offer, represented Elon Musk’s stance on the industry challenges.

Today, the warranty changes have caused the surprise of most users, since it affects the owners of vehicles who acquired a 2016 model or later.

This is because now, instead of getting a 2-4 year warranty, they will only have the benefit of coverage for one year or 10,000 miles.
