Tesla Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk has sought to play down a report identifying "big flaws" in its Model 3 sedan, admitting there is a braking issue with the vehicle but saying it will be fixed with a software update within days.The issue, which ate into gains for Tesla shares Monday, came at a time when Tesla is dealing with reports of crashes involving its vehicles and growing skepticism over its finances.Production of Tesla Model 3s began in July of last year and the first regular customers only received their cars in December after some Tesla employees.Consumer Reports said in the review Monday that it had sourced a second privately-owned Model 3 to confirm initial results that showed the sedan braked slower than a full-sized pickup truck. Analysts said the magazine's story was a bad advertisement for Tesla.
