    Weak Seat Motors

    Howdy y'all! I recently did a test drive of a Model Y.

    How do you answer, how much did you pay?

    I fall in line with those who have made the leap into a Model 3 from a lesser expensive car. And I'm quickly finding out that people have no hesitation about asking questions that I was always taught would be rude to ask. So, for those of us who have made the move to a more expensive car...
