Stood in line 2+ years ago before a reveal of a car was released. Not because I'm a super Tesla "fan-boy", but the timing was right for when I'd be ready for a new car. I wanted the Model 3 to be an option and hopefully still qualify for the tax credit. I've been driving the car for more than a month now ... and WOW! The acceleration and performance are beyond anything that I have experienced before. The build is great. Reviews of early release Model 3's should some issues but looks like those were corrected. The single touch screen took a little getting used to, but now find it to be very intuitive. Overall, a great car. Update after one year of ownership --------------------------------------------------- Can I give the car six stars? Absolutely love this car. Everything about it.

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! :)

My Tesla 3 has the extended battery, premium packages, 19" wheels. 10,000mi review. What a fun car to drive, very fast, glued to the ground, corners like crazy, This is a sporty car by design, so the ride is firm but very good. The computer screen requires some patience to learn where everything is.....but after a few days, I like it. The navigation is superb, the sound is quite good, I downloaded the Tesla app on my iPhone, now the car locks/unlocks when getting in the car or leaving, you can set the temperature remotely, the garage door opens within 100', closes when leaving, storage is adequate for this size of a car. It charges automatically after midnight for the lowest electrical rate. I commute 100 miles so I don't have to use superchargers which are slow and pricey. There is a lot of noise coming through on bad roads, can't wait to try some other tires, also significant amount of wind noise. I don't buy the Tesla story that since you don't have an engine, your hear more noise, simply poor design....I am sure the upcoming electric cars for the big boys will be a lot smoother. Since all the initial Tesla 3 are identical except for the color and tire size, I found a company that sells many options to make it yours (RPMTESLA). Well 27000 miles stills works like a charm, no problem to report. I did buy a soundproofing kit, seems to help. I have purchased a set of Vredestein Quatrac 5, they have fantastic reviews I have 48000 mi now, no loss in range or speed, a great little car!

Model 3 - still a winner in every respect

Tesla hit it out of the park with 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, loves 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. You will have trouble buying and eating a hamburger in the time it needs to charge, especially since they modified the charging software to shorten the charging time. 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. Now with over 10,000 miles under its belt, the car has gotten better via over the air software updates. The navigation system has been improved. The car now can navigate itself off an Interstate exit, if you so choose. The climate control operation is more intuitive and the touchscreen interface has even more flexibility. All at no added cost. Tesla decided they had to increase the processing power of the main computer in the car and add redundancy for extra reliability. They changed our our computer board during a one day visit to their local Service Center. The car now recognizes stop lights and stop signs to help navigate on local roads in addition to interstates. Actual self driving is a ways off but the driver assistance features come in handy, especially on cross country trips.
