Best car I've ever owned

No maintenance besides for tire rotations. There's hardly anything to go wrong with the drive train. This is the best and easiest car I've ever owned. It gets better with over the air updates, for free, which is crazy.

The best and most fun car I have ever owned.

Fantastic performance. A unique driving experience. With online updates, the car becomes better the longer you own it. No gas stations, no range anxiety since I have a level two charger at home. Quietest ride I have ever experienced.

Considering a Tesla?

Once you drive one you won't want to drive... or even be in... anything else. Yes its technologically advanced, but lots of cars can do emergency braking, and park themselves. Its so much more. Drive one and you'll see. Best purchase I made. And I don't miss pumping gas in the rain, or the cold, or the heat.

Absolutely LOVE it!

Knocks everyone's socks off! Style, beauty, features, performance . . . not for the faint of heart! Have driven it to Oregon, or I should say, it drove me most all the way. Selling it only to get a Model Y.

Truly the car of the future

The Model 3 is like driving an IPhone that keeps updating itself to better technology with time. The speed and the handling are awesome too. This is the full package vehicle.

Great combo of performance, economy, and high tech

Immediate torque, 129 mpg equivalent, enhanced autopilot with expanding features of FSD that gets better with free OTA updates. minimalist style with very quiet cabin, the safest car on the road, in car entertainment, what else can you ask for?

Best driving experience ever

Once you drive a tesla you cannot go back to an Internal combustion engine vehicle. I waited 2 years for this car and it does not disappoint.

Love the car, but won’t buy another Tesla

Love the car. It is great! I love that I can save 200 dollars a month on gas. But the problem is the mileage. I have a SR plus and drive 150 miles a day. On a cold winter cold, my mileage is basically 15% to 20% less. So I charge 90% (210 miles) bc that is what Elon says to preserve the life of the battery. So I basically have 170-180 miles of range. BTW never reached 250, which was advertised by Tesla the M3 has. So no room to do any extra driving. Range anxiety is real. Over time the battery will degrade and will only be useful for 200 miles. Then comes the winter and poof 150 miles of range. Great car but won’t buy another Tesla unless they can get 300 plus miles below 40k price range. stay with ICE, it will save you the anxiety and headache. With ICE, you know what you get.

Great Future Car

This is the car for you if you like to technology, like being able to preheat your car from your phone. Also, with cruise control the car keeps a standard distance between you and the car in front of you.
