Best Car I have ever owned

I have had the Y for a little bet over a year and have put 30,000 miles on it. Have had no trouble at all with any aspect of it's operation. Have towed a 3,000Ibs trailer from the east coast to Dever in the middle of winter (every day the temperature was 32 degrees or less) without and had no idea that it was behind me except that i had to stop every 100 miles to recharge instead of every 275-300 miles. I will never go back to a gasoline powdered car again.


Best car ever

I’ve had my 22 model y for a year and have 12k miles with zero problems so far. I expect many great trips in this car.


Tesla will rip you off!!!

Oh no. I’m had a mixed experience with my Model Y, but today’s Tesla price cut has sent me over the top enough to leave a review. I took delivery in November after arguing with Tesla over flaws in the car they delivered me. They assured me they would be fixed after delivery - but they’re still not fixed. I find the car generally fine, the big screen is nice. But Tesla just reduced the price of what I got by $13,000. No doubt the value of my (broken) car just dropped. I feel like I was ripped off.


Overpriced and Rough

My Tesla Model Y LR has been a major disappointment. I have experienced the phantom braking issue several times, and at least once it almost led to an accident when the person following my was just able to swerve to avoid rear ending me. Each time it's also knocked my coffee all over the dash. I've had a variety of mechanical problems and Tesla service is abysmal - the appointments are weeks out and their repairs have been faulty at time. Otherwise, I find the ride to be rough and I am very uncomfortable in the seat. My husband thinks its quick, but that's useless for my commute. For the price I paid for this car, and having come from an Audi Q5 which cost less, this thing is cheaply made and the interior is like an Ikea cafeteria. I would not buy Tesla again.


Poorly built unreliable rocketship w limited range

I waited months to received my Tesla Model Y with great excitement. Unfortunately, while I enjoyed the way the car drove, it has proven to be a complete disaster. I had a drive unit fail, stranding me at the supermarket. Separately, numbers electric glitches have afflicted the car, it rattles constantly and body pieces have literally fallen off. Finally, the range has been disappointing especially in the cold. It is nowhere near the advertised number. Overall, it's a loose, unreliable rocketship, which isn't confidence inspiring. I can't wait to unload it, but even resale values have cratered.


Economical Tesla

I love my new Tesla model Y. Charge time is about 45 minutes. I use my new Tesla for short commutes to and from grocery store & to and from work.


Performance Model Y

Fantastic vehicle. Comfortable, luxurious and fast. Fits two car seats with ease and plenty of room for the kids and two adults. Ample storage space throughout vehicle, front trunk comes in handy with longer trips. Supercharger network is vast and sprawling. We have driven cross country with zero issues finding chargers or running low on range. The only issues we’ve encountered to date were a leaking trunk (fixed instantly by tesla) and tire wear (21” factory wheels are staggered/can’t be rotated and come with expensive rubber so be prepared to replace them at a shorter interval than normal). The best thing to do is spec the car with smaller diameter wheels (19” wheel = cheaper tires/more selection and better ride quality) or buy a set of 19’s once you get the vehicle. Highly recommend an alignment at regular intervals to prolong tire life.

Worst expensive new car we’ve ever purchased!

We paid more for this vehicle than any vehicle we have ever owned. It had two flat tires within four months of purchase brand new. Apparently they’re special tires that cost $500 each. My wife was left stranded downtown TWICE as I travel a lot and we now have zero confidence that this vehicle will not leave us in the lurch. WORST new car we’ve ever owned! Buyer beware! The guy at Tesla said “yes, The batteries in the model Y are very heavy and that’s why people get a lot of flat tires” There you have it. Other weird things: when you use cruise control every once a while it will beep wildly and slam on the brakes for no apparent reason. I guess it’s for safety but it’s very unsafe. I could go on but I won’t. Just wanted to warn people.


Won't believe it until you own it.

I was a bit hesitant to change to electric, but I can guarantee I will never go back to a gasoline or diesel car. The original decision was due to my gas vehicle costing me too much money. Now having a Model Y. I would recommend to make sure you have a place to charge your vehicle at work or home, no way you could just depend on Supercharging. Well you can, but then you lose the convenience of the electric vehicle. Money savings is not even close to my favorite part of this vehicle. From performance, to smoothness, to balance, to actually saving my life with Autopilot. Later on, I found out its like the second safest car in the world, and then its the most American Made car. I highly recommend it.
