5 HUGE PROBLEMS With The Tesla Model 3!Jun 01, 2021
good morning ladies and gentlemen i hope you are having a fantastic day if you are new to the channel my name is park lanier enstein and this is virgin vehicle a couple of months ago i was in this exact spot with a
model3 the good news is Which today is a similar Model 3, only with nicer wheels, a tent, and everything is blacked out. I loved that car because of the way it drove. I'm getting a lot of cars for the money and although the starter packs had to spec it high now that they're becoming more and more common you can get one for a reasonable price, it even clocked a 0-60 time with the 4.4 V box seconds when it comes to tires that are actually not that great and I am fully convinced that with the right rubber this could give something like the BMW m3 a run for its money another positive of the car that doesn't work on the air suspension that the Model S has the perfectly flat Model S tracks so it has a decent amount of body roll the crazy part is it's not even dual motor performance 1 Tesla is going to get away with it and I have some severe personal concerns on that but because these are conventional springs you can get an aftermarket stiffer spring lowering kit and you can actually ride like a real sports car this with the right wheels, the right tires, the right suspension It really is an amazing car but you know me this is virgin vehicles no car is perfect so here are five things I hate about the Tesla Model 3 the look of the Model 3 is controversial it's a bit quirky and nerdy so To say it, the Model S and the Model X look aggressive, they look mean. but the Model 3 when it comes from the factory looks a bit smiley and childish, that being said, you can do a lot to prevent it from being able to obscure certain pieces of exterior trim that tints the headlights, for example, get black rims.
But the one thing you can't easily do is fix that disgusting wheel gap. I don't understand. Tesla is all about making performance machines on the cutting edge of technology and also helping the planet at the same time. To help the planet, this makes me so angry that I feel like it could cause a riot among all the car enthusiasts. I can fit my whole hand between the wheel space and the wheel itself, which just looks silly if this is dropped about an inch. and a half would look a lot better actually it might ride better as well while handling well in the seating position it's perfect the steering feel is great it has instant throttle response considering it doesn't actually have a conventional throttle it's not the pedal throttle.
It's all electric. It went down a bit. It still has a lot of free space in the front. This car has never been scratched on anything and has been driven aggressively. The downhill kit fixed it up to number two. I appreciate that Tesla has created unique door handles that are integrated into the car's body lines, both for aerodynamic efficiency reasons and because it just looks cool that you can walk up to your Tesla Model S and pop the door handles off. the doors. These beautiful pieces of metal feel high quality it's amazing well they try to do something similar with the Model 3 now you have to keep in mind this is a $35,000 car though right when they came out you couldn't really get it. one for under 50 but at the same time it seems like there are other cars in this price range and especially Tesla is such an amazing brand they could have done something a little better now that these door handles remind me of something like off an Aston Martin or a Nissan GTR or even the reverse of a Lamborghini Huracan you push here and pull this little handle now unlike the GTR there's not too much play in the handle maybe a little bit but I feel like I don't I don't know kinda cheap and then when you open the door this is my biggest gripe with door handles there are two different releases one is here and the other is this handle here now you probably more want to pull this . handle because how often are you used to pressing a button to open the door the problem is when you pull this handle you actually get a warning on the screen that I'm going to show you actually says use the other handle click this button because if you use the emergency latch, in quotes, that you might damage the window shot.
I don't understand why they would design a door handle that will damage the car. Imagine you open your car door and then a warning appears saying yes, use the other car. door the next thing I hate about the Tesla Model 3 has to do with this interior component right here it's the cover for a storage space essentially where you can put your phone actually it has a similar one here where you can charge your iPhone really great place actual charging points here but the problem is closing it when you press this look at that it just won't close and then you get this warning saying lid close gently gracefully like what is this a soft close door obviously it's magnetic but you do this that it's annoying. i just opened the door by accident to get out and tell you about the next thing i hated and yes i clearly broke door six the next thing i hate about the
model3 one of my absolute least favorite parts that is so fixable so tesla, please keep this in mind.
I'm sure it will fix it in performance variance on dual motor variants but I don't understand why on this car where it does. Talk about performance and it's very impressive zero to sixty four point four to five seconds is very very fast why are you putting all season tires on the car now? It's in Fremont and unfortunately luckily the amount of rain and snow in California isn't that much and people can buy winter tires especially if you're buying a car of this value if they need them on demand. put four SS on the performance version of this car fantastic choice on this even though these tires are absolutely rubbish they shouldn't have had all seasons now regardless of make if they had put performance summer tires on it , this car would be too much better acceleration handling everything now i know all seasons are more practical maybe these are harder compounds so its more efficient range is extended but you know its a jolt and i think to a lot of people would you like to take this and fund performance handling characteristics and situations a better tire would really improve this car this on pilot smart flores that performance has got to be sick that brings me to the last thing i hate about the Tesla Model 3 and that is its unconventional speedometer placement in normal cars you are looking down in front of you along the road and you can see a speedometer right between your steering wheel or maybe there is a heads up display so you know how fast you are going in the Model 3 you don't have that availability the only speedometer is here now its conveniently located but if you have your eyes glued to the road even on my peripherals i cant focus on the road and see what the heck it says at the same time actually that might be positive.
I'm thinking now an officer says sir do you know how fast you go and no I have a model 3 you haven't seen the virgin vehicle videos? Quick, you're going to do one little extra thing I don't like before we decide to go to the supercharger station. I want to talk about superchargers. It can be a bit of a pain to have to stop depending on what state you are in. Although Tesla is doing a fantastic job of really expanding the number of superchargers in this country, I've taken long road trips in a Tesla Model S in the middle of nowhere and really had no
problemsat all. it means, but it's obviously common sense, that there aren't as many super charging stations as there are gas stations, now this isn't relevant on a daily commute, you just plug in your model 3, go to work and come back and most likely if you live in california or a popular state there will be a super charging station everywhere you look where i am in southern california you can supercharge this thing all the time anywhere no problem at all but i never really have I've witnessed my friend Brooks from drag times do it, but I'm going to see what happens if we actually load this and how fast it loads.
I am now at a quarter of the range and started with basically half to three quarters of a Tank and no. I just said tank half to three quarters of the range and I haven't actually driven it that hard but if you're going to drive a Model 3 really fast it's going to deplete the range fast and then well I'll fly one way to load it another Little detail I don't like is the lock and unlock button it's here bouncing around I can't I can't hit it I'm not sure why they wouldn't I've put a lock button maybe the size of one of these things here I mean I feel like ma can unlock is as relevant as accessing your music or recent calls especially you know you're going to listen to music but recent calls It should definitely have the button the same size as lock and unlock attend station well we finally got to the station Tesla super charging so just open this here perfect ok so we're actually showing an actual Tesla super charging station look and feel Coming back literally Tesla charges everywhere I have free rein to figure out where to park.
Oh wow great graphics so this is my first time at a Tesla super charging station. I am responsible for charging the Model 3 last time I was with Brooks now. the model 3 something to keep in mind it doesn't actually come with a free super charge but loading pretty much the entire range on this thing will only cost you about five bucks my is 63 which we drive here like a camera car for example it will cost about 60 to 70 dollars this is a good deal how fast it actually loads we'll show you real time with the time lapse sped up on a timestamp how long it takes but essentially it's capable of doing 500 miles of range in an hour that means in about 20 minutes you can fill up almost all of this if you have a quarter tank or so in 20 minutes just have lunch so let's go ahead and plug this in front and get this out so there's actually a button here that you can click that opens the flap so you can insert this into the model 3 now let's see what happens how long does it take how much range do we extend look at the guys it says right there the screen time left for the full charge only 50 minutes and that's a full charge let's see what happens ok 25 minutes later and the car tells me it's essentially 95 percent charge obviously it'll take a little longer for that last 5% but I have 288 miles of range now from 310 pretty good let's go ahead and unplug this by the way every spot here is full of Tesla's that's an interesting thing to know because if you show up and well everything will be taken over that be a bit of a pain but incentivize people to leave when their car is done charging because some people keep their cars here overnight or for too long they actually charge you for every minute your car is sitting here after it's fully charged.
The thing about the model 3 is the price aspect. This is a $50,000 car that is now a Rolls-Royce Dawn that is extremely sexy not comparable in any way to the twin turbocharged V-12 terrible fuel economy extremely luxurious this is a Rolls-Royce that costs eight of these eight well guys there you have it there are five things I hate about the Tesla Model 3 and a bunch of things I love that being able to do this charging experience for the first time was very very cool and overall I am absolutely in love with the car. I can't wait until they come out with that dual motor version.
