The success of FSD and my increase for trust in Tesla

I paid 10 grand and now my already great Model Y now drives itself through my town. It slows down for speed bumps, handles four ways on its own, swerves around bikers and parked cars who's doors are open. It handles the 5 and the 405 quite well too!

Obviously it's not perfect and can do the wrong t...

We live high in the mountains not far from Big Bear Lake, California, and as we park outdoors, it's a given that we are going to be tracking mud, snow, and grime into our cars. As a result, we value having durable, rugged floor mats that are easy to clean while protecting the floor.

A Digital Designer's POV on V11

Long time lurker, first time posting here! I've had a Model 3 since May '18, and I've been a professional Designer (sometimes called UI/UX Designer and Product Designer) for several years now.

Bad Service Center Experience

This is the second time I've had to deal with my local Service Center (Austin, TX), and it's 0 for 2 now.
I just bought a brand new Model 3, about 2 months ago (this is my 4th Tesla). and I had to contact them once for a weird Vibration/Buzzing that was occurring under the front console. I came into...

Detailed review of my M3LR after the first three months of ownership and a few cosmetic modifications

It’s been about 3 months since I bought a Model 3 Long Range. I started my EV journey in 2018 with a Volt, loved that car but became addicted to being in EV mode and was honestly annoyed whenever the ICE kicked in.
