Tesla convertible? Model Y roof flies off while owners drive down California highway

Nathaniel Galicia Chien was driving down Interstate 580 with his parents in their brand-new Tesla Model Y when he started to hear a lot of wind.

“I thought a window was open,” Chien recalled in an email to The Verge, “but half a minute later the entire glass top of the roof just flew off in the wind.”

Chien said the incident occurred hours after he and his parents picked up the new Model Y from the Tesla dealership in Dublin, California. Right off the bat, they noticed some minor “fit and finish” problems, such as “spacing issues and unevenness in the gaps that are pretty well-known issues with new Teslas.” But they didn’t expect any problems with the crossover’s mammoth panoramic glass roof, and certainly not on the same day they drove it off the dealer’s lot.

Newly Delivered Tesla Model Y Roof Flies Off On Highway During Drive Home

Even though Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) is an increasingly popular car brand, the company often has complaints of quality control. This usually includes sub-par paint, misaligned doors or panel gaps. But a new owner got quite the surprise while driving home with their new Model Y.

According to u/Indescribables on Reddit, while driving home with their father in the new Tesla Model Y, the driver heard a loud wind noise, and then the glass roof flew off while on the highway. The Model Y has a large single piece of glass that makes up most of the roof.

They immediately returned to Tesla to sort out the issue, and called police to alert them of the debris in the road. They also took a video and picture of the mishap:
