Tesla and the independent product review publication Consumer Reports have had a hot-and-cold relationship for many years.

The buyer’s guide has been smitten and quick to praise the electric car maker at times. But on Monday, Consumer Reports said it couldn’t recommend the new Model 3 sedan after finally testing the electric vehicle.

The report said “we found plenty to like” about the affordable Model 3 that starts at $35,000, but ultimately, “our testers also found flaws—big flaws—such as long stopping distances in our emergency braking test and difficult-to-use controls.”
