About the Tesla Model 3

D A purchased this Tesla Model 3 new with additional options for $70,000 (including all on-road costs). D A would buy this car again because: “It has features not offered or properly integrated into other cars that make living with it easy such as column mounted gear shifter, phone app key, Spotify integrated, software updates and the phone app as well as Sentry Mode.

Although some other cars have this they have not integrated it as easily has Tesla had. My BMW has a much more complex user interface.

How reliable has your car been? Tell us about any issues.

I have had no issues except a slight door issue which Tesla fixed for free in 20 minutes.

What do you think of the ownership experience with your car?

The ownership experience has been great except there are lots of electric vehicle or Tesla haters and that has caused people to judge the car I drive.

How has the purchase and aftercare experience been with your car?

Great. I generally look after my cars well.

Are you happy with the price and features of your car?

Yes. This car has much more features than its competitors.

What do you think of the performance and economy of your car?

The performance is great as it handles great and performance is mind blowing. The economy is as expected for an EV and it does take a little longer on road trips to charge.

What do you think of the technology in your car?

The technology is out of this world although I wish it had features such as reverse assistant, massage, as well as interior and exterior LED lighting.

What do you think of the ride comfort and handling of your car?

Ride comfort could be better and handling is great.
