Consumer Reports won't recommend Tesla Model 3 (Updated)

The magazine said that the car stopped shorter the first time, in 131 feet, similar to other small luxury cars such as the BMW 3-Series.

CR never was able to repeat the first results.

Its results were "almost identical," said the magazine.
