    Almost a year ago I took delivery of my Tesla Model 3 and since then I've driven it over 26,000 miles. Is it still the best car I've ever driven or was it a $50,000 mistake? Let's find out.
    In my original Tesla Model 3 review I mainly went over the features of the car but in this video I'm going to go over my experience of owning a #TeslaModel3 and focus on the 3 most important factors:
    Reliability:
    When I first got my Model 3 I was skeptical on how reliable it would be since it was a first generation of its kind, and there were a few horror stories online from early adopters who were experiencing software & hardware issues.
    I can honestly say my Model 3 has been 100% reliable for me so far, and yes even though that should be expected for a brand new car, it’s still a nice surprise how reliable it has been since Tesla is still relatively so young & since Model 3 is a very unique car. Range anxiety does exist, but the Model 3’s energy graph is extremely accurate in predicting the estimated range left when driving so as long as you pay attention to that and plan ahead you’ll be fine and shouldn’t ever have to worry about running out of battery.
    For how heavily it’s integrated with software I’m actually surprised my Model 3 has worked this well, and I’ve been extremely satisfied with it over my first 26,000 miles.
    Cost:
    Out of all those things during the first 25,000 miles in a Model 3 you only need to do tire rotations and I know this isn’t the norm but luckily for me there’s a local tire shop that gives free tire rotations to Tesla owners, just one of the many perks of going all-electric I guess.
    The only thing that has cost me money to drive my Model 3 this far is electricity from either at home or a Tesla Supercharger. My city is one of the best locations to put the Model 3 range efficiency to the test and with an average of 248 Wh/mile through all the seasons means the LR Model 3 is one of, if not the most efficient electric car out right now.
    It took 6,457 kWh to drive just over 26,000 miles, and since the Model 3 gets about 80% efficiency it actually took about 8,071 kWh and at my current electricity rate of 6.8 cents per kWh that comes to $549 that I’ve spent on electricity to drive my Model 3 over 26,000 miles. I’ve also charged for free at hotels, parking garages, and family members houses so my total cost to drive over 26,000 miles in my Model 3 is less than $600. My monthly electricity costs have only increased by an average of $36. To put it in perspective, a car that gets 30 mpg at $2.75/gallon would cost $2,383 to drive 26,000 miles and if you add a $50 oil change every 4,000 miles that would be an additional $325. This shows how much a person can save in fuel & oil by going all-electric, especially a Model 3.
    Enjoyment:
    It’s no surprise that the Tesla Model 3 is a joy to drive but I’ll quickly go over a few things that I don’t like because nothing is perfect. The windshield and windows fog up more than any other car I’ve ever driven. Fortunately I got some fog reducer that helps. I wish the frunk had a better closing mechanism or was able to close automatically because I hate leaving hand prints on the hood from closing it. I also wish the driver profiles would save the lumbar setting. Luckily that can be fixed with a software update which is one of my favorite things about the Model 3.
    Now moving along to the other things that I enjoy most about my Model 3: How a car can be this simple & minimalist yet pack so much power and torque is something I’ll always be impressed with.
    Yes there are times when it phantom brakes but if you're using it as it's designed you will always have a hand on the wheel ready to take over and I love knowing each time I use it it's getting better through the neural network.
    It charges overnight while I sleep, it stops charging when it reaches whatever limit I have set, and I wake up to an 80% charge every day or 100% charge if I'm about to take a road trip - no more stopping at gas stations. I can tell it to drive somewhere and it gives me real-time step-by-step directions on the beautiful responsive 15” touch screen which is the best screen in any vehicle out right now in my opinion.
    Now after a free software update and even after any battery degradation from driving 26,000 miles, my Model 3 now gets 320 rated miles on a full charge.

I just don't understand how a company of Tesla's caliber which has put recoverable rockets into orbit and heck even a Tesla car, can't produce enough cars to have hundreds or thousands of extra ones just waiting on dealer's lots ready to be sold. I mean, if this thing is such a hot seller, why wouldn't they ramp up production by stopping the rockets for a while to produce more cars first before going skyward. This "waiting" game sounds a bit fishy to me for some reason, more like a planned artificial supply shortage to get people's appetite wet... well, maybe it's just me, but I sure wouldn't wait years or even months for a car in this "right here, right now" age we're living in. I would equate this shortage to the beginning of smartphones around 2007/8, they were more of a curiosity, high priced, with not so great battery times, then ten years later just about everyone has one. Don't get me wrong, not mocking Tesla at all, I'm just puzzled at their supply shortage. As soon as their shortage is over, and the price comes down to a more affordable level, I will probably purchase one, or two, ;)

@Bill A the sales price, whether you have complimentary supercharging or not, is going to be the same. I mean, unless you have some solid documentation to demonstrate otherwise, of course.

There's no such a thing as "Free Supercharging", you pay for it initially with the higher cost of the car.

We own a Model 3 and a Model X. We bought the X first, and then we realized that we just weren't willing to drive our second car, which was still an ICE car, any longer. So we sold our one remaining ICE car and we purchased the Model 3 about eight months after we bought our X. They're both wonderful vehicles, and the X and the 3 together absolutely fulfill any needs a family might have, from commuting, to camping, to hockey games. Everything you say about the Model 3 is true. Personally, I think of it as the car that changed the world.

Fantastic review thank you :) It would be a cool software update to have temperature controlled heating that auto heats the car while charging to an extent so that when the car is used in winter it requires less for the initial warm up, I know you've mentioned it can be pre heated but if this was auto while charging the windows would probably not fog up again unless in extreme conditions.

The purpose of a car is to get you from point "A" to point "B". What you have here is a rolling entertainment center, movies and e-books. In other words, distractions. A distracted driver is also an unsafe driver.

9:35 Not quite how that works. Tesla trains the network using their data and then pushes the trained network to the cars, so it is getting better as the they train it more. But you using it more doesn't actually improve it.

26000 miles is nothing for a car. Try to ride 80000, then comeback with another video. I would say, for normal car manufacture, 80000 miles is also nothing. My Toyota Avalon had 200000 miles and still ran as new. Now, let us now how rattle your Tesla after, let's say, 60000 miles with all that cheap plastic interior.

Yes, shale gas is extremely cheap in the US and CCGT plants are also fairly cheap to build. Wind and solar are also coming down in price, but are intermittent (solar only produces 15-20% of its peak power on average in the UK, wind is between 25 - 35%).
