We have had this car for 3 months and 4000 miles. It has been trouble free, fast and fun. The simplistic interior is fantastic. We have also taken two long trips in the car, not an issue at all. Tech is outstanding. Cons are Tesla has not been building vehicles for 100 years and it shows. It has more road noise than it should, fit and finish lacks versus other manufacturers.Others have a long way to go to match Tesla in electric cars, Tesla has a short way to go to match others in building CARS.UPDATE: After 17k miles and several cross country trips, charging is not an issue. Trouble free so far. UPDATE; 15 months and 30,000 miles it's been super fun and very reliable best car ever

Insanely Amazing

There's honestly nothing like this car. It puts a smile on my face every day I drive it. Seriously, just go test drive one. I used to be skeptical, but I think all of my cars from now on will be Teslas. The instant torque and regenerative braking make this thing handle like a supercar. The slowest one goes 0-60 as quick as a stock muscle car. It's legitimately insane. If you get the Performance version, it's basically the quickest car under 100k. Autopilot makes my commute easy and fun. Didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. Charging at home isn't a problem for me, but if it were, you'd still have the Supercharger network that no other companies have. Did I mention the acceleration? Because wow. Initially these cars had some build issues but honestly I think Tesla has really sorted things out now. If you're looking for a new car and you don't at least test drive one of these, you'll probably regret it. Words can't adequately describe how incredible this car is. Update: a year later and this car is still amazing.

Wow... This is everything a car should be

During our period of self house arrest (quarantine) we would break out once a week and take a road trip to the local mountains and desert. The Model 3 was a joy on winding roads and steep climbs, to the point where we would come back refreshed and renewed. The car is an experience that is hard to describe. There is no roar of an engine, just wind and music from a great sound system. Glass overhead to see the sky and trees, and for some parts of the trips, we let the car drive, We noticed that in Self Driving Mode, it was a very cautious driver -- peeking around corners and slowing down for cross streets. The Model 3 does not disappoint, and is the next evolution of automobile.

Amazing Daily Commuter Car

I have owned my 2020 Tesla Model 3 LR AWD for about 6 months. I commute 110 miles round trip, five days per week for work; Most of my commute is on highways or the interstate. I absolutely love this car. While not perfect, it is far and away the most amazing vehicle I have ever owned. 1) I plug it in at home at night and wake up with the preset charge I need for the next day. No stopping twice weekly for gas. My monthly electric bill is about $70-$75 more with my 110 mile round trip commute 5 days weekly. No oil changes etc, however, reading forums it seems this car eats through tires quickly when driven spiritedly. 2). Amazing clear and well tuned sound system. Especially when downloading music with lossless FLAAC on a USB stick. Very clear with good instrument separation, even at high volume levels. However, this car is not compatible with Apple CarPlay or the android equivalent. For audiophiles, this shouldn’t be an issue. TuneIn is nice for podcasts. 3) This car is so much fun to drive. The instant torque without shifting needs to be experienced. Test drive this car. The steering is nicely tuned. One pedal driving is game changing. This is the way cars should have been all along. Driving this car kind of feels like a video game as far as responsiveness. The 4.4 or less zero to 60 is so much fun. While there are faster cars; this one is efficient as well. Have your cake and eat it to. 4). Autopilot (I have the free version and not the potentially full self driving version) is amazing. While you do need to be alert in order to be safe, my commute is so much more relaxing on the interstate and highways. I arrive home much less exhausted than when I commuted in our Lexus. 5). Voice activated controls work very well for me. The “screen distraction” in the edmunds reviee isn’t much of an issue for me. 6). The seats are by far the most comfortable bucket seats I have experienced for long trips. (Not including the old couch style Oldsmobile and Cadillac etc seats). The Tesla has a bit more wind noise and you feel rough roads a bit more than our 2013 Lexus ES350, however, I dread days I have to drive the Lexus in order to keep the gas from getting old. The interior of this car is not as nice as similarly priced luxury cars at this price point. The fit and finish isn’t quite as good as a Mercedez, Lexus, BMW or Audi as far as exterior and interior. However, the driving functionality and infotainment system is amazing. After a few days driving you quickly forget about small mis-alignments only visible if you go over your car with a fine tooth comb. With the Tesla you are paying for the drivetrain tech/battery and infotainment system tech, free OTA updates etc. These things are far superior to Mercedes and BMW ICE cars at a similar price point IMO. UPDATE 2/17/21. I’ve now had the car 11 mos. I still love this car. Autopilot is amazing for my commute. I feel like this car is worth we’ll more than I paid for it. My wife, who is not interested in cars at all, now wants to get a Tesla model S for our next car.

Winter handling is exceptional. Acceleration changes the way you drive- it's safer than ICE. Voice commands are fantastic. Very very happy with this car
