Anyone else think their friends think they are too obsessed with their new car? I decided to just post my update on Facebook: "It's been more than a month since I bought my Tesla model 3. Most of you who know me know how much I love electric cars and I was looking forward to getting this car for a long time. Several people have asked me how it’s holding up so I thought I would post an update. In the five weeks since I brought it home I can honestly say that this car has exceeded all my expectations. I explained to a friend that it’s like the feeling you get when you leave the office for a vacation. I feel that way at the end of every day when I get into my car. It’s not just the sports car handling. The instant torque is shocking and addictive. The car just instantly goes where and how fast you want. I don’t tend to go much faster in this then I did in my Prius but the difference is that if I want to go from 20 to 70, the car never sees 30, 40, 50, or 60. It’s not just the electric features that make the difference. Much of the technology (my phone is the key and the car starts and stops automatically without any buttons, the over the air updates, the minimalism of the interior, the visualization of the surrounding cars) could be implemented by legacy dealers but they just aren’t up to speed. Combine that with the fact that when I bought it I didn’t have to waste any time at a dealership, the car has the best stereo I’ve ever heard, the fact that it’s the single safest car on the road, the one pedal driving, the incredibly comfortable seats, the panoramic glass roof and the fact that I never have to even think about refueling (I start every day with a full charge). It just amazes me. Plus, I have had two updates in the month that added new features (including Neflix and Youtube) and made the car drive better. This was done over the air and for free. A third update is expected in the next few weeks that will add a little more acceleration (the car already does 0 to 60 in 4 seconds), some extra range and some other improvements. There are a bunch of other things I love about this car but I don’t want the post to be too long. The bottom line is I smile every time I get in it, every time I pass a gas station and every time I’m the first car when the light turns green."
