Since getting my model 3 a week or so ago I have had many curious onlookers ask how it is to drive. My best analogy is that it is like going from an old Nokia cell phone to an iphone. I use that specifically because my previous car was a 1967 Buick which in the words of my kids is "sturdy". The model 3 I feel is very safe but definitely not sturdy. Driving it feels like driving an iphone. The glossy but delicate finishes, all the little features, the high performance etc.
