Edmunds Shares Experience After 5,000 Miles With Rivian R1T

It’s hard not to like the Rivian R1T on first impressions. It is a handsome truck, it’s capable, powerful and overall it is much better than a brand new automaker’s first offering has any right to be. However, it’s one thing briefly experiencing a vehicle and another entirely to live with it as you start to notice problems, especially if it comes from an inexperienced automaker.

Edmunds says that after 5,000 miles with the Rivian R1T, much of the positive first impression has worn off. The publication says that even though many of the bugs it encountered early on have been fixed and it expects existing bugs to also be ironed out in the same manner, not all the negatives R1T are fixable through software updates…

The 5,000-mile report states that hardware-related problems “range from just minor annoyances in quality to parts actually coming loose or malfunctioning. For instance, the passenger side exterior window molding came loose and separated from the door, and this apparently coincided with the window not going up all the way – the two issues are probably directly related.
