    I'm in Napa, CA and have a Model S. Our Model 3 is ready to configure and my wife would like to drive one before we place the order. I see a few around Napa and am hoping an owner will contact us and let us do a short test drive. She's not comfortable driving the "S" and is torn between a 2018 Leaf and the M3. You can contact me at [email protected] Thanks.

    Try using the website Turo.com to rent one from a private owner.

    I did this for both an S and a 3. I’m unaffiliated with the site.

    I tried. None available anywhere close. Called Tesla in Walnut Creek and they confirmed, nothing they know of either.

    You might suggest a day-long swap. Let the Model 3 owner take your S while you take the 3.

    Some people on Turo will deliver. I rented a Model X a month ago and did not do the delivery but some will. You can also go hang out at a supercharger, I'm sure one will be there during peak times (if you can talk them into a test drive).

    Found someone locally in Napa to loan me their car for the test drive. Thanks to all for your thoughts.
