Tesla Vehicles and other brands’ electric SUVs are the least reliable models sold in the United States, a reflection of the technology’s risk, the Consumer Reports organization reported Thursday.

Consumer Reports, a non-profit organization that evaluates products and services, said Tesla, the world’s most valuable automaker, was ranked 27th out of 28 brands, just ahead of Ford’s Lincoln.

“Electric SUVs, as a category, are at the bottom of the list in terms of reliability,” Jake Fischer, Consumer Reports director of vehicle testing, said during a presentation to the Detroit Automotive Journalists Association on Thursday.

Among electric SUVs, Fischer said Ford’s Mustangmatch-e “is the only one with above-average reliability.”

Consumer Reports recommends the Tesla Model 3 sedan and rates its reliability as “average.” But Fischer said the rest of Tesla’s vehicles were below average.

Fischer said Tesla’s Model Y electric SUV, Tesla’s best-selling vehicle, has problems with poorly fitting body panels, leaks and temperature controls.

The “Model X” still has issues with the gull wing doors, Fischer said.
