2017 Tesla Model 3 Long Range 4dr Sedan (electric 1DD)


Review

I've owned some awesome cars, but this one tops them all. If you have any doubt about the future of the automotive industry, go figure out a way to drive one of these. Once everyone has experienced it, gas cars will be a thing of the past. Driving dynamics, comfort, elegant and simple design, this car has it all. One comment on the Edmunds review... I agree with everything except the low rating for smartphone integration. One out of five because the reviewer(s) don't like bluetooth? Everything is going bluetooth, and it's far simpler than connecting a cable.

2017 Tesla Model 3 Long Range 4dr Sedan (electric 1DD)


Review

I bought my Model 3 sight unseen or driven. Agree that it takes a bit of getting used to, take your foot off the brake and it regenerates the battery so it slows fast. Nothing you can't get used to fast. Limited Apps for the car but streaming SiriusXM (important to me... Love knowledge at Wharton), Spotify, and other streaming services works great through bluetooth. I expect Tesla will update that remotely. Sound system and navigation great. Love the simple voice commands "Call" " "Navigate to" . Other Tesla owners so helpful! Someone asked me to roll down my window and said 'Welcome to the Family!' I looked quizzical and they laughed gently, smiled and said the "Tesla Family!" :) Friends have told me about the Easter Eggs, much more to learn and that is part of the fun. The drive is amazing. Great handling and turns easily. Support is 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Gives a smooth, quiet ride, air circulates well. Fits 5 comfortably. Charger installation was easy. Charges in a few hours for 280 miles charge. Definitely recommend this car. Goodbye Petrol! I'll never buy another brand!

Review

Tesla hit it out of the park with their latest car, the Model 3 4-door sedan. As beautiful as the car is on the outside, it is an absolute joy to drive. Even my wife, a non-techie, love driving the car. Virtually all the adjustments to climate control, seats, mirrors, steering wheel and other options are via the very well organized centrally mounted touchscreen. Though smaller than the Model S sedan with a smallish 75 kWh battery pack, the Model 3 has plenty of leg room for 6 footers. Tesla says 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. It is more like 4.6. Tesla rates the range at 310 miles. The EPA says 334. It is a great car on a road trip because of the efficiency with which it uses electricity from the battery pack and the rapidity of charging since there is less energy to replace. Around town it is very agile in traffic and parks itself, if you like, parallel and perpendicular. On the road the Traffic Aware cruise control and auto steering are easy to use and work pretty well, though the driver must be alert at all times. A bonus is that the car has all the hardware that Tesla claims is needed for self-driving with only a software addition in the future, downloaded over the air.

Review

You gotta be able to embrace some change if you want to enjoy this car. Controls, buttons etc, or the lack thereoff, are vastly different from what you might be used to. But basically you can still drive the model 3 like any other car, except it’s whisper quiet and super fast. Runs like on rails, hugs the road like no other. It’s lighter, smaller, and perkier than the model S or X, but still feels rock solid. Has plenty of space for a family of four, and road trips are no problem with a range of 310 miles and the super charger network. Charging at home overnight is so much more convenient than getting gas. Car gets better every month with ‘over the air’ software updates, autopilot keeps evolving. Would not trade the model 3 for any other car in the world! :)
