Tesla Model 3 Pros and Cons
Tesla Model 3 LR after 50 days - the fears, the attractions, the unexpected and the verdict.
The app. You can pre-heat or pre-cool the car, know where it is, check the charge state, lock it, wind down the windows. Cool!
Range. I get between 400-450 km on a "tank" if I project the actual kms done and the percentages reported on 110 km/h road trips. That's more than enough for Aussie road trips.
Has wireless charging for phones and USB-C ports.
Maintenance. There is virtually none.
Autopilot and adaptive cruise - transformational on long trips.
Quietness. I hate noise, and this thing is about as silent as you can get. Gold.
No keys required except your phone. Just walk up and drive away!
Acceleration. 0-100km/h quietly in 4.4s. Changes the way you drive.
The car is just incredibly fun to drive.
The community. It's a mixture of environmental crusaders and rev-heads and they are super-helpful on forums. With a Tesla you can be both green and enjoy the thrill of the acceleration.
Can refuel from home. Very cheap and convenient and no more service stations!
Vegan leather seats are surprisingly good.
AWD. Hugs the road.
Glass roof gives passengers a nice driving experience.
Remembers your seat settings.
Car is mostly good for the environment. Until you have to dispose of the battery.
Supercharger network. Gets you between major cities in Australia on the East Coast.
Fun to have spotify/netflix on board.
Sound system + low noise = nice listening experience.
No more exhaust fumes or oil.
Thumbwheels on the steering wheel are very intuitive.
Voice recognition works well and makes the car safer.
Great use of cameras for warning about collisions in tight spaces. Tells you how many cm you are from objects.
Heated seats and steering wheel are divine.
Touchscreen - awesome interface. Very user-friendly. Great navigation.
The boot opens and shuts at the touch of a button but the frunk doesn't.
The Australian government hates EVs. They're inevitable. They should get over it.
Some people worship Elon as if he's some sort of God. He isn't.
Often gets speed limits wrong, especially out of school hours. Very annoying.
After being on Autopilot it is easy to "forget" that you have to steer! This is perhaps the most dangerous thing about the car.
No spare tyre.
Car doesn't always tell you why it won't let you do something.
When on Autopilot doesn't slow until *AFTER* hitting the new speed zone, danger of getting caught speeding.
Despite the 8 year battery warranty, it is too early to predict how it will fare in 2029. The replacement cost could be enormous and you'd be at Tesla's mercy.
Tyres. They cost a lot each and are prone to punctures on pot holes. They also need rotation.
Price. 86K was a lot of money to part with. Now it costs 80K. :(
The claimed range on the website should have all sorts of disclaimers.
No heads up display. Can be distracting to look at the screen when driving.
The "handover". Takes about 5 minutes and leaves you without enough knowledge to drive properly. A 30 minute tutorial would have been invaluable especially when you just handed over more than $86K AUD.
Difficult to fit a roadbike inside it without dismantling it.
The cost of tyres and the EV tax in Victoria is more than the cost of the electricity it consumes.
Large turning circle/large vehicle. Awkward in car parks.
Some people think that the car is emissions-free. In reality it is only as green as the power source.
Would have preferred a hatchback.
Car doesn't remember your rear-vision mirror position.
Navigation doesn't have driver's view. It is all top-down.
Tight entrance to the boot (trunk).
The TESLA Model 3 Has Changed My Life!!!
The screen is in the perfect spot to see everything you need to, but does not block the line of sight for the driver.
Entertainment is the best! This car has everything from Netflix, to farting sounds, to video games... you can easily pass time anywhere with anyone.
The ability to schedule maintenance or service in your Tesla app and include pictures is amazing. You can also reschedule in the app as well.
TESLA mobile service will come to your location for all kinds of maintenance. I have had them come to my home 3 times, and it was 100% free for everything that was under warranty.
Stereo system is amazing. Every sound is clear and perfectly balanced. No additional settings or speakers are needed. Classical music to rock music all sound clear, even bass is good.
Always feels like a new car when you get updates. It never gets old!!
The voice commands, blue-tooth calls, and voice to txt can understand you easily. I have had no issues with hands-free phone calls via bluetooth. They are loud and clear on both ends.
Charging at home or at a Super Chargers is cheap, easy, efficient, and reliable. There are also so many Tesla Super Chargers that road trips don't seem scary.
Safety and security is mind-blowing. The ability to record 24 hours a day, 360 degrees around the car makes you feel safe when driving or when you leave your car parked. Also easy to use and the car seems to really know what footage it should save.
PIN for driving and glovebox is very nice and provides added safety.
Multiple driving profiles are very convenient and save almost every single setting you can think of, not just the seat!!
Updates are released quite often and typically download in 30 minutes or less. They also download automatically so you never have to worry about updating your car manually.
Automatic windshield wipers are fun, safe, and convenient.
The ability to control the car with your phone is a dream. Climate, range, locks, and location can all be seen adjusted from your phone.
Basic included Autopilot is absolutely amazing. I use it daily. It is easy to use and works exactly as stated. No issues with it.
The air conditioning and heating is the best I have ever had. It heats and cools faster than any other vehicle. Great for people in hot climates.
Cost of maintenance and driving is next to nothing. I can drive 200 miles for only $5.00.
Acceleration is the best I have ever experienced. Smoothe and fast!!
One pedal driving is so easy, so relaxing, and actually saves you money. Regenerative braking is smoothe and easy to get used to.
Amazing handling in all weather conditions. Steering is tight and traction is never lost in my experience. Car is low to the ground for added control, but not so low that it scrapes on slanted driveways etc.
Cargo space is out of this world. There is room for almost anything you can think of, including a 5 foot Christmas tree if needed with seats down.
Passenger seating is comfortable and spaced very well. Plenty of headspace and foot room for all five seats.
The driver seat is actually the most comfortable chair/seat/couch I have ever sat in. The ergonomics for your spine and body mechanics are absolutely spot on, plus superb seat warmers for all 5 passengers!
The interior dash area is modern, clean, and beautiful. No buttons or knobs to collect dust either!
Safety First! This is the safest car I have ever owned. Crash ratings are superb, crash test videos are astounding. I feel safe driving this car, and I feel like my kids are safe in it. Roll-overs are near impossible, and the handling in this car is the best I have ever felt.
The exterior of the car is absolutely beautiful, and also aerodynamic.
Battery range accuracy is incredible when you plug in trips and use battery percentage display. I've found it's accurate to within 2%.
A/C seems to have some kind of issue causing an odor especially in humid climates, and Tesla has advised not to use recirculated air setting to avoid the issue. Cabin air filters need to be changed at least once or twice a year as well.
Delivery takes quite a while. I waited 8 weeks for my car, but it was worth the wait!
Manufacturer defects are possible, like any vehicle. Mine had 3 panel gaps upon delivery, each 7mm or less. Tesla fixed them for free.
Cabin air filters are not very accessible, but not necessarily difficult to get to either. Both are located in the center console.
Battery loses quite a bit of range in freezing temperatures. But there are ways to avoid excess battery loss, such as scheduled departure etc.
TESLA needs to include a list of voice commands for the vehicle. A lot of commands are common sense, but some are not. However, it does understand your spoken words easily.
