I picked up my model 3 about 21 days ago and love it with only a minor hiccup or two. However, the only thing that is seriously bothering me is when I enter the vehicle and the HVAC kicks on, the front dash/”vents” start crackling. I understand thermal expansion and all that, but it’s annoyingly loud and persistent until the car is up to temp after 5-10 minutes. It honestly sounds like I’m making popcorn in the car. And I hate making these comparisons, but my 12 year old Acura never did this, new or old.
Has anyone heard or seen anything like this? Any easy fixes? I can upload a video later on in the day. I also plan to take it to Tesla but wondering if I’m an outlier and what they can fix if at all. Thanks!
