Edmunds apprises readers about Tesla Model 3 problems
Tesla has received tremendous consumer response for its mass-market electric vehicle, Model 3. However, many consumers are still waiting for user reviews before they book their Tesla Model 3. With there being hardly any official word on the reliability and build quality of Tesla Model 3 electric car, Edmunds is keeping readers abreast of the problems with the vehicle, especially the recurrent issues with its electronics.

Edmunds has also disclosed that during the month, the rear-view camera image of its Model 3 did not appear at times. Moreover, the navigation screen of the car sometimes zoomed in and out, and scrolled all by itself, resulting in frequent pixelating of the image.
Furthermore, as per Edmunds, the icons on the map screen of the organization’s Model 3 kept flickering during the month. The car’s audio display also rapidly wavered on the screen by itself; and, sometimes, the entire center screen, in which the car's primary controls are housed, failed to turn on. All these Model 3 problems revealed by Edmunds required the rebooting of the car.
