According to the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Reliability Survey all the main complaints are directed towards the Model S reliability.

The Model S by Tesla is being considered one of the best performing EVs. But it seems Tesla’s reliability is not as good as its performance. The Models S by Tesla received very high marks when it came to dynamic driving, sustainability and livability.

The Model S sedan only consumes energy equivalent to 84 miles per gallon. The predicted reliability of Tesla Model S on the other hand is another matter. The Consumer Reports Annual Auto Reliability Survey used more than 1400 Model S owners in their survey. From the 1400 responses they deduced Model S owners face an array of complications.

So owning a Model S by Tesla has an overall problem rate of worse-than-average. Last year Tesla Model S had a rate of average prediction. It seems Tesla has fallen on the reliability scale.

The rating also means Model S does not receive Consumer Reports’ recommended designation. For recommendation a vehicle need to have reliability and safety standards. The standards need to develop an average or better predicted reliability.

The main problems Model S owners face, are in the drivetrain, power equipment, charging equipment. Along with problems in center console, the body and sunroof squeaks etc. The climate control, steering, and suspension systems were the most complained about parts of Model S.

All the problems fall under the 4 year warranty by Tesla. The problems are being corrected by Tesla with no charge to the customer. But once the warranty runs out the problems are some pricey ones.
