This is the first I have heard about this issue on the rear glass, but the tact and tone of the comment makes it appear that this is somewhat common.
I think I've seen one other user here say their delivery specialist pointed out a crack (at the bottom black painted area where it joins to the body) and scheduled the glass to be replaced. i would say it is far from a wide spread issue. this pix looks like the cracks starts up in the clear section and spiderwebs out from there, like we normally would see from a rock chip.

I think this is pure speculation and plus what’s “a lot”. This was the type of thing that turned me off to You You initially.

Except this is the rear window: How do you get a rock chip on a rear window?

I have plenty of them on my windshield but never seen or got one on the rear window.

Seems more that the car was shaken well during its boat transport to Europe.

My vehicle was delivered with the rear glass cracked.. There's another thread about it here, on which I posted that's been locked. People on this forum have been unusually defensive about this issue, denying its a problem.

I believe it is a problem, but Tesla will take care of it.

if anyone has questions, feel free to PM me.

That thread was not locked because of the issue being brought up, but because the direction the conversation was taking, following multiple warning to keep the conversation civil. There is a difference.
