Tesla Model 3 2020 LR: review after a year

It's my one year Tesla-versary and I'd like to share the pros and cons of the vehicle.

16 Mar 2021

Tesla Model 3 Pros and Cons

Pros:
  • The car stays great and surprising due to the software updates

  • Hassle-free travel over great distances thanks to Superchargers

  • Driving simlicity, single pedal control

  • Great efficiency and range

  • Onboard entertainment (Netflix, games, karaoke, Spotify ...)

  • Fun of driving, acceleration

  • Full-self driving on the highway

  • Sentry Mode (recording possible intruders)

  • Friends and family are always interested in my Tesla

  • Minimalist design, minimal hardware buttons

  • Tesla community and gatherings

  • Easter eggs and geeky stuff

  • Can easily be rented out = reducing costs

  • Deep trunk + frunk

  • Smaller vehicle suitable for European city

  • Camp Mode

Cons:
  • Expensive insurance

  • High price

  • You must stay vigilant with autopilot, sometimes unexpectedly brakes

  • The trunk does not open automatically (resolved in the 2021 model)

  • Opening doors is not intuitive, I must explain it to people (the 2021 model at least has icons inside)

  • USB charging is slow (the 2021 model now has a fast USB-C)

  • Soft paint, easily scratched

  • Onboard internet is free only for a year

  • Glossy middle console, gets dirty quickly (resolved in the 2021 model)

  • Signs detection does not work on autopilot, sometimes causing unnecessary deceleration

  • The trunk opening is not a hatchback

  • Minor issues upon handover (rear light fogging, one seatbelt clip was under the seat)

  • Regenerative braking decreases in winter, they could emulate it by normal braking

I'm glad I decided for this car. You can rent it on HoppyGo.
