    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.

Jay O I also live in apartment so having three super chargers near home and work is a life saver. I tinted all my windows including sunroof because I live in sunny San Diego so it keeps it cool and I get the sun protection. Spent an extra 5k on the tint and the ceramic coating but it’s well worth it in the end

All things aside, getting a Tesla in a country that doesn't has that much of supercharge stations (basically any other place other than USA) is worying. I would love to try one, but I do long trips sometimes and I don't drive at a constant speed. I sometimes speedup and sometimes just go slow in the slow lane and enjoy a drink. I don't know if one full charge will be enough for me since I might not have any other stations to charge it. Well and there is the fact that I don't have $50,000 flyging around. But that is for another time.

Not just Tesla but this looks like distracted driving. My 2008 Dodge van has a radio and I can hit a preset, hit scan or turn the knob. No complex data, very narrow range of data. The only thing I have to worry about is my speedometer and my fuel level. It’s right there. I don’t have to look when I turn up the heat or turn on the lights. It’s all tactile. No screens jumping around. More information is not necessarily better. More eye candy is certainly not better. Hands on the wheel, eyes on the road. Anybody with me?

Perhaps your definition of "reliable" is unique to you. Software glitches and 2 repairs is not 100% reliable my friend. I get that the car hasn't stranded you but if you look at sources like JD Power you will see that software glitches and those 2 repairs would count against the Model 3. The bar gets lowered for Tesla products because they are a new company and doing good things overall but I don't see lowering quality expectations as a good thing.

On an absolutely frozen day, you'll lose around 10 miles of range every night. When driving you use up a lot more range, that'll depend on how you drive. So, keep close to a battery and don't forget to schedule charge every night to 90%. Preheat the car before you leave, just do it on the app, you don't have to but it's ideal. It's not bad using it in cold weather, but it's different. Nordic nations love EV's, not just Tesla's, if that helps.

This man is full of crap! Those batteries only last 5 years due to them not being operational above a 104 degree temperature. Now add a 10-20 deg increase from the motor and a outside temperature of only 75 deg then you are going to not get that 10 years of operation as they get in a temperature controlled test. No one I know has had such a car that lasted over 5 years without a full battery and motor change out which cost a lot.

Of course, a Trump supporter. Besides being factually incorrect, someone who believes in conspiracy theories. There is such a thing as hydro power, and those can be used to power a Tesla. "Most lithium isn’t mined. More than 95 per cent comes from pumping underground brine into pans, allowing the liquid to evaporate and separating out the lithium using electrolysis." Washington State University, Metropolitan Center for Applied Research and Extension. "The outcomes of my research support the premise that electric vehicles have a positive impact on the environment (relative to internal combustion engine vehicles) and can play an important role in climate change mitigation." - Harvard, 2016, The environmental benefits of electric vehicles as a function of renewable energy. "An electric vehicle’s higher emissions during the manufacturing stage are paid off after only 2 years compared to driving an average conventional vehicle, a time frame that drops to about one and a half years if the car is charged using renewable energy. Approximately half of a battery’s emissions come from electricity used in the manufacturing process. Battery manufacturing emissions appear to be of similar magnitude to the manufacturing of an average internal combustion engine vehicle, or approximately a quarter of an electric car’s lifetime emissions." - ICCT & Norwegian University of Science and Technology, 2018.

When your Tesla warranty over $$$$$ Repairs labor $$$$$ Maintenance $$$$$ Replace new battery $$$15k — $$$20k If you charge at home your bill will cost more than the speed ticket. You have known ideas the voltage will suck your electricity at home like a vampire. Fast car will spend fast money. Tesla will bring excitement to the new kids on the road, and will collect the data to research and experience gave results for big increase $$$$$$ for them.

Battery module replacement for Tesla is $5-$7k. You do not need to replace the entire pack. My warranty is around $2,000 annually. My previous car was a Mercedes and it came in at around $1,800 annually. Labour is less compared to a Mercedes, and cost of repairs is about the same. I'd had to have parts imported from Germany before. And, just FYI, my previous car before the Mercedes was a Jaguar, and the Jaguar costs more across the board compared to Tesla. That said, service from Jaguar was exceptional. My power company offers off-peak EV charging discounts. If you're not used to buying European luxury vehicles, if you're coming from mass market Japanese and Korean, then yes, this will cost more to maintain.

That huge screen is a major distraction from focusing on the road - especially the stupid big white panel nearest to the driver. Can you change this? And can you turn it off completely? Otherwise, no sale here. Also - how is it in the snow? And (related) does it have sufficient ground clearance to drive in a couple of inches of snow or get through small ridges of 6-8" plowed snow? (Mini's, for instance, are bad in winter because of the low clearance.)
