The last Tesla in the power quality survey J.



The last Tesla in the power quality survey J.

Tesla was finally added to the annual report J.D. Strength survey satisfaction of new car buyers – unofficial.

Electric car makers don’t do well. Of the 33 car brands measured, Tesla is at the bottom.

The results are “unofficial,” J.D. Power, because Tesla does not collaborate with market research companies, whose surveys attract strong interest among automotive industry executives and car buyers.

Tesla “has consistently refused to give permission to survey owners in 15 J states, a requirement to participate,” said the company, which has conducted quality surveys for 34 years.

Nevertheless, J.D. Power surveyed 1,200 Tesla owners without company cooperation, and Dave Sargent, vice president of automotive quality, said he was very confident in the accuracy of the results.

Most customer complaints, said Sargent, do not involve batteries and electric motors.

“The challenge facing Tesla is with the basic types of vehicle making,” Sargent said in a prepared statement. “They are quite new in making volumes, and it’s not easy.”

Many of the weaknesses reported in the survey are “things that maybe 10 other carmakers might have 10 years ago, but have solved,” such as broken exterior parts, Sargent said.

The survey, released Wednesday, emerged following widespread complaints about quality in the company’s new Model Y, the hatchback version of the Model 3 sedan. complaint including body parts that are not aligned, seats are not attached to the base, bumpers fall in the rain, water leaks in the cabin, and door seals are let the dirt particles get inside and coat the interior.

Also on Wednesday, Business Insider, citing an internal Tesla email, revealed that Tesla might have it accidentally installed a broken cooling tube prone to leakage in the Model S sedan. The problem involves 2012 models until at least 2016. The story notes that the glycol cooler that comes in contact with a hot battery can cause a fire. The Times has also reviewed an internal Tesla email that shows Tesla employees discussing tube leak problems.

Tesla did not respond to requests for comment.

Dodge was tied with Kia for first place in the quality list, the first domestic brand to reach the top position. The Dodge models surveyed included the Challenger, Charger, Journey, Grand Caravan, and Durango. The fact that these cars have not been redesigned for years helps, Sargent said, but “They have done a very good job of improving their quality. It is no accident that they did well. “

The survey surveyed 87,282 buyers and tenants of the new 2020 model. Quality problems are calculated and sorted. Dodge and Kia have 166 problems per 100 vehicles. Tesla has 250.

More problems are reported for all models this year, J.D. Power said, mainly because more questions were raised about problems with infotainment systems and other technologies.

It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
