Tesla Model 3 Pros and Cons

Pros:
  • The App! I've had numerous EVs, this is by far the best App around. So quick and responsive. Cool in Summer and Warm your car in winter! See where the car is. Unlock, start car while away!

  • Software updates. Like a phone, the car get better over time!

  • Super Charger Network, currently the best, fastest and most reliable chargers.

  • Autopilot. If you're on a motorway, the autopilot is unbelievable. It's definitely one of the features you'd show off to your friends. Makes long journeys effortless.

  • The infotainment screen is second to none! Yes it doesn't have android auto/Apple car play. While I'd still like this feature, it really isn't needed. 

  • Very fast, even this standard range version.

  • Obviously this will be objective, but the car is stunning to look at. Inside and out. 

Cons:
  • FSD. Full self drive. Tesla, stop it. It doesn't. The cost of this feature is unbelievable. And it does very little in the UK. And the timescales of this actually working have slipped again and again and again.

  • To paraphrase Ghandi. What do I think of Tesla Customer service? I think it would be a good idea.

  • Auto wipers, they're fine... but they need improvement. Especially as it is difficult to manually control them.

  • Paintwork, yes it's not great.

  • Quality control, issues do exist.

  • Autopilot, yes it's also a negative. The car annoys you to make sure you're driving every 20 seconds of so. Even if you have your hands on the wheel it can still ask you, especially if you're travelling in a straight line. Tesla need to improve on this.

Owner Review

These cars really do live up to the hype.

I won't go into to much detail as I feel I've touched on most things above.The pros and cons above may give a false illusion that I'm saying this car isn't great. You'd be wrong. It is hands down the best car I've ever driven. And in all likelihood, it will be yours too. The positives out-way the negative tenfold. This is one of those cars that really need to be driven to be understood. 

The speed-o being in the middle has gotten a lot of bad attention. It's a none issue, you get used to this so quickly. I'm surprised any reviewer who has used the car more than an hour even mention it.

Kids seem to love this car. I have no idea how they know so much about it. I'd have got less attention from them if I'd have bought an Ice Cream van.
