I May Never Buy Anything Else
December 13, 2018
I read a lot about the car before test driving it and buying it. Driving Tesla electric is a more cerebral task, as you can't fill up just anywhere. But once you get "range anxiety" conquered -- and the car helps a lot -- it's the most outstanding ride and driving experience ever. Amazingly quiet. Wonderfully smooth and gearless. Ferociously fast. So little maintenance or repairs. Autopilot -- still a work in progress -- is nevertheless impressive and very useful. The seats are so comfortable, though that is subjective. The very worst thing about the car is that everything else seems so crude once you are used to the Tesla. The second worst thing is charging on long trips, but it really isn't bad. (You use a bathroom, grab a sandwich, and you are usually about ready to go.) Tremendous safety test results. Extra trunk in the front ("frunk") because it has no engine. Of all the cars currently available, if I had to pick 1 to drive forever, this would be my choice without hesitation.
