1. A method for producing a motor vehicle, comprising:
producing a substructure and at least one superstructure module of the motor vehicle, the substructure and the superstructure module each having at least one edge region;
painting at least the edge region of the substructure and/or the edge region of the superstructure module; and
connecting, via an adhesive, the edge region of the substructure and the edge region of superstructure module, after the painting of at least the edge region of the substructure and/or the edge region of the superstructure module,
wherein the substructure and the superstructure module are positioned relative to one another by way of a tolerance-compensating screw connection, so that the edge region of the substructure and the edge region of the superstructure module are fixed in the relative position thereof by way of the tolerance-compensating screw connection during curing of the adhesive, the entire tolerance-compensating screw connection being disposed at a position entirely outside of the edge region of the substructure and the edge region of the superstructure module.
