In response to the Model 3 losing its recommendation, Tesla replied it has already fixed numerous issues pin-pointed by owners.

Apart from being key to Tesla's aim of attaining profitability, the Model 3 is also the best-selling luxury vehicle in America today.

This became evident in Tesla's struggles with the Model 3 ramp - an experience that Elon Musk describes as one of the most hard points of his career.

When the Model 3 first came out in 2017, Consumer Reports gave it an average predicted reliability score based on the survey results at the time about the Model S because the two shared much of the same technology.
