In case anybody is interested, I would wager on a Rivian pickup being out before a Tesla. I am guessing that phil and mich800 would be picking Rivian as well. They have experienced supply chain and manufacturing expertise.

Where did I say they have not produced vehicles? Re-read what I wrote. I will give you an example. Rear bumpers flying off Model 3's in the rain. Do you know how to fix that before production? Testing like the other manufactures do. But Tesla puts them in consumers hands and says, let us know what breaks and we will modify as we go.


A couple of owners reported it happening a year ago.


"A couple of owners" LOL

This was a design problem and it affects ALL model 3's.

In short the rear bumper facia was designed as a bathtub and had no way to drain water. So what did it do? Fill up and fell off! LMAO.

Then we have the front belly pan collect........f dirt and sand. Another design defect.

Ford has invested money in Rivian, and one of Ford's mfg executives was appointed to Rivian BoD.

I guess, some plan or will buy the electric pick up when it comes.

Some won't move from internal combustion into electric -- must be the descendent of those who remained in horse drawn buggy scared stiff of exploding new fangled cars.

Some liked to but can't afford it and envious of those of those who can.

And a few who just born Mr Magoo and a wet blanket.

Everything is well with the world then, lol.

Yes a design issue, not a manufacturing issue. Like no other manufacturers ever have design issues with production vehicles.

I'm going to buy stocks in big tent companies.

I love it when people talk about non-polluting electricity.

I would have more confidence in a Tesla pickup than Rivian.
Rivian's track record...zero.

Then don't try and downplay it and say "a couple of owners"

Much like the LB7 injector problem this will effect every M3 in wet weather. The rear bumper facia was designed as a scoop. It will hold water and fall off if it fills with water.

This is only one design problem. You want me to list more; because there is LOTS more.
