I have owned a Land Rover. I have driven most car brands. Tesla vehicles definitely exceed the hype.
This SUV feels bigger on the inside, drives and accelerates like it's not big at all. The autopilot feature learns and gets better with time. The regular over-the-air updates from Tesla essentially improve your vehicle every few months.
Only downside: If you are very introverted and do not like attention from passersby who always get thrilled once the Model X Falcon wing doors open up, then consider a less exciting vehicle.
We were shopping for a used car and are delighted we found perfect 10. They gave us a great price without haggling and recommended and followed through on repainting the hood without hassle, no charge to us. The customer service was down-to-earth and friendly. They didn't waste our time whatsoever (which is so appreciated with three young kids along!). We have never had such a pleasant experience purchasing a car. We felt comfortable and taken car of the entire time. The purchasing and loan process was so quick and easy, and they got is a better rate than with our bank. Kevin and Ashley made us feel like family. We can't wait to buy our next vehicle with them!!
Best Car I ever owned

The car is very safe, comfortable, awesome to dive and you always feel pampered. After driving this car, I can not go to a regular vehicle.
The car has exceeded all my expectations, great performance, excellent visibility, great breaking, NO Problems. Over the holidays a Porshe and Mercedes owner drove my car and they both stated... the Model 3 is my next car.
Amazing acceleration. I beat a Mustang GT and Porsche 911. I love the instant Heat and the fact that the car doesn't need to warm up to get the most out of the engine. The All Wheel Drive is great for winter time.
Not just the best car, The best THING I’ve owned !

It’s Not just the best car I’ve owned , it’s The best THING I’ve owned !
I should have made the purchase / transition to Tesla years ago....especially since I have solar, I’m charging at home and driving for free (Not counting Tesla’s 10,000 + free Superchargers across the US)
So consider the savings from :
1)Not purchasing gasoline/diesel/natural gas or propane or hydrogen.
2)Not paying for oil changes.
3)Not paying for cooling system / radiator antifreeze maintenance,
4)Not paying for smog checks and or smog related repairs .
5)Not paying for brakes, brake related expenses till way over 100,000 miles due to Tesla’s regenerative braking .
6)Not having to pay for motor/engine belts and hoses.
7)Not having to pay for Transmission oil/filter service or maintenance and repairs since Tesla’s do not have transmissions.
8)Not paying for fuel filters, DEF fluid (for new ’clean diesels) .
9)GREATLY diminished waste of time in traffic due to the ability to use the carpool/HOV lane while driving solo.
10) Tesla’s are the Safest vehicles made receiving the highest marks on crash tests.
Definitely not a cheap vehicle to purchase (new or used). Looking forward to not having to pay ever higher costs for gasoline in the future. The electronic sophistication will take some getting used to. Better not be afraid of technology if you are looking at a Tesla. It can be a bit frustrating to try and find the right screen but I'm sure it will get easier with time. Tesla's SuperCharging network has worked great so far, it is integrated into the GPS so when you enter a location it shows all the SuperCharging stations along the way and the range. Can usually get back on the road in less than an hour. Like the regenerative breaking system, rarely have to touch the brake except to come to a complete stop. Very solid and quiet. If you can afford one, definitely recommend it.
I test drove this car because someone said they had a good deal on them. NOT SO. This car was unlike any other car I ever driven. FASTEST car I ever driven. As fast as my motorcycle. Scary, you don't know how fast you are going on the open rode. Got it to 110 mph in about 6 seconds. No joke. The salesman almost freaked out. I didn't look at my speed until I passed 3 cars very fast. This car had a lot of room. Very comfy. Dashboard was nice, but plain. Loved the Navigation screen. Maybe if I had a little more money in my budget I would've taken this. Salesman explained, no maintenance needed except brakes, tires and a program update. Then spoke to my insurance company (GEICO) and the price for coverage was insane for the Bronx, where I live. All in all, I very nice car. But not what I was originally looking for.
Good Value for money with state of the art technology. Hassle free buying experience . Most of enhanced options comes with the car .
Works great on highways, local roads . Very safe and reliable to drive .
Regenerative braking is good since it gives longer brake life .
Very easy to purchase, the entire thing happened over email and the papers were signed via overnight FedEx. Less than 1 week later, the car was in my driveway. It does take longer than a traditional dealer, but you don't have to sit there for hours while the paperwork and financing takes place. The car came in immaculate condition, no paint chips, no scratches. Interior was perfectly detailed and cleaned. Good price, low mileage, clean history report.
This is a good car with Tesla

I think this is a good one. The exterior is good. The interior is also good. The build is good. This one of my fave cars.
I put in an order for a 2018 Toyota Highlander without AWD. It had all the other features I wanted, especially the color and trailer hitch. I thought I could live without AWD. After a few days I called back to cancel and get a refund of my deposit. The salesperson asked why and I told him the car did not have AWD and I decided not to buy because of that. He said ok and forwarded my call to the person who would refund my deposit. I got the refund in 3 days.
Coolest car I've ever owned

The lap top dash has got to be inset into the dash. It looks so stupid sitting on the dash. needs gauges in front of the driver too.
From the head turning falcon wing doors to the exhilarating torque and acceleration that the all electric dual motors provide, this suv is a dream. With frequent updates, this car gets BETTER all the time. The Autopilot keeps improving and will some day fully drive itself.
This is a great electric SUV. Tesla has really outdid themselves with the design, performance, and technology this SUV offers. I have the Model S too, and prefer the Model S because its more nimble, but this is a much easier car to get in and out of compare to the model S. Its got great clearance off the ground, it handles great for a heavy SUV, and the performance incomparable to other SUV in its category. I have the six person configuration and wish I ordered the 5 person one for more cargo space being that the second row may fold down for more cargo space. Overall, I think this is a great car, fun to drive, reliable, and will get you notice anywhere and everywhere.
With what you get in performance and luxury, it's hard to believe it is a practical family sedan! The technology built into this vehicle is second to none, and as an electric vehicle, there is NO competition! I own 2 of them!
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.
