Do you mean build quality or a fault?
Build quality in this thread relates to an inherent lower overall build quality. Mentioned often with Tesla here and elsewhere. Faults does not equal build quality. All cars have had faults or recalls.
But defend away
Alright mate ;)
To me, a leaking charge port is a quality issue and a fairly big one considering the current going through that area.
Koolaid is fine, I used to drink that with my Apple stuff! :-) If there were issues all over the car, then that's quality. If its generally a once only issue, its a fault. Otherwise you'd have to say that no product that existed or has ever existed is good quality
All I'm saying is that other EV manufacturers aren't faultless, even those that have been making cars for decades. At least in Tesla's case the quality issues are really just paint and panel gaps, not life threatening quality issues like in the Etron.
Tesla is a premium product, like Apple. Paint and panel gaps shows a lack of detail and quality control. The brake issue that showed it has poor braking, that seemingly was not known and this not tested, or quality controlled, and they had to be told is very poor IMHO. Im not saying that to pick on you or Tesla, but think about it
The other issue I have and this applies to all that do this, is that there seems to be a trend towards fly by wire. As with aircraft, more and more is taken away for the driver and managed by 0's and 1's. That's a worry. It has reduced pilots workload and salaries in aviation, but do we want everything in a car being managed by a computer that can fail, or freeze, or have a bug? I want brakes to be my brakes
