Consumer Reports fails to give Tesla Model 3 a passing grade
Consumer Reports has something of a contentious and complicated relationship with Tesla. Though Consumer Reports touts itself as an independent testing agency, the organization -- in the eyes of some critics -- certainly isn't above shifting its reviews around in an effort to generate a headline and thrust itself into the news cycle. As a prime example, you might recall that Consumer Reports last year downgraded the Tesla Model S due to a delayed software update that was scheduled to arrive just one day after their report went out.
With that qualification out of the way, it's time to take a look at what Consumer Reports thinks about Tesla's Model 3. In a report published earlier today, Tesla's mass market EV failed to receive a recommendation from the publication. Though CR found much to like about the Model 3, it ultimately found too many serious flaws that, taken together, were impossible to overlook.
