Although I don’t like the tone of the article that seems to suggest that if you stick with “established” manufacturers they don’t have issues like this, especially in new models. I certainly don’t expect Ford to have an issue like this in an F-150 electric since the truck has been out for a long time already.

If Rivian can avoid Tesla’s reputation for having awful build quality (even after all these years of production), it will be a plus. It certainly says something about Rivian discovering this issue during customer surveys and now taking steps to fix it.

I agree with you about the tone of the article. The person wrote:

"To resolve this, it will have no (sic) remove the hood liner, inspect a detailed set of paths and apply adhesive where necessary. The adhesive needs to cover the entire path rather than just some sections. Once applied, any excess adhesive must be wiped away before reinstalling all of the components. "

When they could have simply said:

Rivian needs to inspect and reapply adhesive as necessary.
