A DRIVER who bought a £100k Tesla Model S claims that it looks like it was built by a group of toddlers.
The Tesla owner is fuming after discovering build quality issues with his brand-new, luxury EV – and now regrets buying a car from the US firm.
Reddit user @r/Wellthatsucks showed in his video how the rubber trim around the door frame was peeling away, and the plastic trim near the taillights wasn't flush with the body of the car.
At the end of the video, he also demonstrated how the exterior window trim was also coming away from the bodywork.
But the most concerning feature was the frunk (front boot) lid, which, when opened, was shown to be rocking back and forth.
He said on the video: "It’s open, and I’m tapping it, and the thing wobbles like it’s going to fall off the hinges. It’s unbelievable.

Another said: "A Tesla isn't a luxury car… It just has the price tag of one."
