The British named the Tesla Model 3 the most reliable mid-size sedan

The worst cars in the ranking were the Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4

British edition of WhatCar? surveyed 13,000 car owners to find out what problems they faced with their new mid-size sedans. As it turned out, the owners of Tesla Model 3 faced the least number of malfunctions.

According to the survey, only 5% of Tesla Model 3 owners have encountered any malfunctions, and in no case did the breakdown cause the car to stop on the track. Actually, all the malfunctions boiled down to damage to something in the interior. All of them were removed under warranty, no one had to pay for repairs.

Interestingly, the compact German premium sedans are at the bottom of the list. These are the Mercedes C-class, the sports version of the Opel Insignia, which is sold in Britain as the Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport, and the diesel Audi A4. The most reliable new car in this class in Britain was the Skoda Superb.

WhatCar rating? actually looks pretty logical. Electric cars, in principle, have much fewer rubbing parts, their mechanics are simpler, so, in simple terms, they have less that can break.

At the same time, the inexperience of Tesla engineers and the speed of launching the model into the series could not but lead to the presence of some “childhood diseases” such as a sloppy interior or, for example, paint peeling off the thresholds and the formation of rust on them in countries with a cold climate.
