    My experience on my 2023 MY RWD (Australia, Giga Shanghai)

    Hi Everyone, Sharing my experience a few weeks in after the delivery of MY RWD with EAP . This is more for those who are lurking to get one like I was sometimes ago. I feel that a lot of concerns I had in the past was over exaggerated, due to an overwhelming information out there. So here I am...

    Review: Hankook iON evo AS vs Pirelli AS+ Elect vs Michelin PS 4S vs Michelin PS AS 4

    I tested all these tires back to back on either a Tesla Model 3 or Y. I have both a Model 3 and a Model Y (wife’s). My goal was to have a great handling tire (makes me happy) that can handle the occasional snow, is quiet, and has good range. For context, I have the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S...

    Model Y Review by a Hater

    Only partly clickbait. I wouldn’t say I’m a hater but pretty cynical and hard to please. This could also be read as uncompromising or a refusal to lower my standards. Either way, I think I’m a pretty fair person. So here’s my review of my first month of Model Y/LR ownership. I’m coming from...

    Just installed Cross Climate 2

    My 2020 MY just got it's first new set of tires; 20" Cross Climate 2. So far, I like them. I don't do a lot of highway miles and I work from home and don't have a set route that I take every day, so I'll probably never know if they affect my range at all. Most days I never get below 60%...

    Model Y Performance ownership after a year top 5

    Hi fam, been a bit. This forum was so helpful while I was ordering and waiting for my MYP and I want to continue to return the favor to new and would be new owners. As such, I've made a full video on my top 5 good, bad and ugly after owning my MYP for a year. It hasn't been perfect, there's more...

    New M3 LR owner - what has surprised me so far

    Thought I'd post some impressions of my first week and a bit of Tesla M3 LR ownership, particularly some of the things I've been surprised by. This will include both good surprises and not so good surprises. Therefore, I want to give the bottom line up front - I bloomin' love this car!! 😍 I know...

    Model S Plaid MSM Journal

    Hey guys, I figured I would start a thread to document my journey with this insane speed demon. I’ve had the car for 2 days now. So I was set on the LR version, but after some discussion and thinking I decided to go for the Plaid. It’s a lot of money for a mere 1 second, but frankly I just...

    My 1 week review with the M3LR, compared to the BMW M135i

    So I’ve had my Model 3 LR for a week now and I’ve done a few miles in it, so I thought I'd share my initial thoughts compared to my F40 BMW M135i that I part-ex’d. Just to note, this is the first Tesla I've ever owned. So yeah, those are my early thoughts on the car. Will see how I get on...

    Wow! A nice review of the Model Y in a Canadian newpaper (Globe and Mail)

    Unusual these days to see a positive review of a Tesla from the G&M. Taking the new Tesla Model Y SUV for a spin on Turo Nice to see it, although I'm expecting some harsh comments forthcoming given the general attitude of the commenters.

    Model 3 2019 reviews

    Tesla Model 3 – 2 years experience I purchased a 2019 Tesla Model 3 with All Wheel Drive, Long Range Battery, and the Enhanced Autopilot in August of 2019. I sometimes read of Tesla problems, fixes, complaints, geeky tech stuff, and TSLA stock on the Tesla Motor Club weekly posts. I thought...

    Costa Mesa Service Center SoCal Review

    SO DISAPPOINTED! Let me start off by saying I am a Tesla fan. I was one of the first to reserve a Model 3, I have Tesla Solar and a Powerwall, and I have accepted all the bugs and build quality issues of my Model 3 as long as Tesla is willing to fix them. Bringing my car into Tesla Service...

    Is Autopilot Safe?

    Yesterday's edition of the Wall Street Journal said that automatic braking systems may be dangerous because they may apply brakes when there is no evidence of danger. In other cases, automatic brakes don't stop when there is danger. My SO agrees. She never uses Autopilot because of numerous...

    Sandy Munro is at it again saying how great Model 3 is

    Saw this Teslarati article tonight on Sandy Munro and Mark Ellis' (Munro & Associates) Model 3 motor review and it's comparison to the Chevy Bolt, BMW i3 and Jaguar I-Pace. The report is not released yet but quite the glowing summary of it so far, at least as far as the Model 3 goes. Apparently...

    Model 3 - The Amazing, the not-so-amazing and the ugly!

    I have read countless Model 3 reviews with similar details, so I will try to make this as distinct as possible! Background I am coming from a Mercedes CLA 250 that I drove for 5.5 years/ 67k miles. My wife drives a 2017 Mazda 3 - which we both like for the incredible value for money it is! We...

    A very long and picky Model 3 review [from 2018, of a 2018 Model 3]

    The feeling waiting for my Model 3 to be delivered is hard to explain. I was excited to receive my first new car, much less a Tesla, but also a little nervous. With only an EV to get around, a lifestyle change was required. So with a mixture of trepidation and sheer joy, I read and watched...

    Review of RWD M3 and Delivery today in Fremont

    After reading and learning a ton from this forum, I told myself I'd write a review regardless of how today's delivery went. I.e. I wanted to de-bias my review and not only write one if something bad happened. Delivery TLDR: Delivery went well, with a couple minor items, but was easy and fun...

    New Ownership Impressions and Advice

    Tesla Model 3 Review | Part One | Driving Performance

    TLDW 1) Yes! 20in Turbines 2) 5.1s 0-60 is conservative, lighter wheels and better tires can improve this. 3) The stock all-season tires perform as you would expect from all-season tires. Understeer bias. UHP tires are an improvement for warm weather driving and balance the performance of the...

    I am a Model 3 reservation holder (online 3/31/16). I live in San Jose, CA and neither work for Tesla or already own one. So basically the only thing going for me to get one ASAP is that I'm local to the factory. I recently had the chance to sit inside one at the Stanford Shopping Center in...

    Another Audio System Review

    One of the few benefits of crossing the half century mark on your biodometer is that you can save money on high-end sound systems. Elderly ears just can't get those high frequencies anymore, and your bio-signal processing just doesn't seem to work as well as when you were in your 20s. (For...
