    PLEASE, VOTE ONLY IF YOU OWN A MODEL S OR YOU HAVE DRIVEN ONE!

    In a scale of one to five, one being the lowest and five being the highest, how would you rate the Model S? What's your overall impression?

    PLEASE NOTE: rating-trans-15_1.png 1 = worst rating, rating-trans-15_5.png 5 = best rating.

    Show your rating to others in your signature:
    To change the number of stars just change the last digit of the image to the number of stars you want. For example: if you want 5 stars for the image rating_301.png, change it to rating_305.png
    The code includes a link back to this thread so the user can find the support easily. But feel free to remove it if you wish so.

    I have it a solid 4. We all know the shortcomings, but given all that, it's still nearly the only sedan I'd consider buying right now.

    Solid 4 also. If the styling were better and the range were greater/lower charge time, it would move up to a 5.

    Rear seat belts need a tweak. + there should be a 1 year warranty on tires :biggrin:

    heh, sorry to disappoint, but I didn't do a full writeup on the car. I don't think my brain is yet ready, but I will post impressions and such as I remember them and begin to go through all the crap I shot.

    I'd love to give it a 5 but have to go with 4 for now. If they satisfactorily resolve the concealed storage/console/cup holder issue and bring the interior ergonomic experience up to par with other premium sedans Model S will be a hands down, slam dunk 5 with the panoramic roof. IMHO the hard top would still rate a 4 regardless, however, due to its rear headroom limitation. This is one awesome car, just needs some interior design improvement to truly be the best car in the world.

    For now I'd give the handling a 6, :wink: and the interior a 3. I'm looking forward to what Tesla eventually comes up with for the opportunity console(s).

    I voted before I read that it was own or have driven, so a mod can remove my vote if possible (sorry for that). I have ridden in a roadster, spent a good long while looking over an S prototype, but unfortunately have not had a chance to test drive an S.

    In their defense. They probably thought 1 was best and 5 was worst.

    Can't you edit the poll options to read 1 (worst).......5 (best)?
     
  19. As an appliance the Model S is great; if you are looking for a car with with passion and character not so much. For a moment, I thought Tesla would be designing a sedan with as much character as the roadster; instead they designed a 4 door appliance.

    Some people don't want character in a car. They want something that isn't quirky and just works. I love the Roadster but it's because of the powertrain, not the interior. Yes it does look much cooler than the Model S as well though. I'd say give it time. They seem to have nailed the powertrain, performance and maybe the 17" screen interface. The interior and styling revisions can improve with time. I haven't driven the Model S yet but will in Chicago.
