Tesla recently brought automatic windshield wipers back to its vehicles, but a Model 3 owner revealed a problem with the wipers that CEO Elon Musk said would be fixed.

On Reddit, the Model 3 owner said that, when it’s raining, the windshield wipers will begin moving as soon as a door opens, pushing water into the car.

“When getting into the car in the rain, the wipers auto-setting triggers when you open the door, which proceeds to dump all the water on the windshield into the car and you,” the owner wrote.

The Reddit post was brought to Musk’s attention on Twitter. He replied by saying the bug would be “fixed in next release.”
