Pros Performance, Fuel Economy, Appearance, Prestige, Value ,Ease of Maintenance, Comfort, Quietness
Purchased as New
This is the most amazing vehicle I have owned in 42 years of buying cars. It is stylish, powerful, spacious, quiet, and economical in its use of fuel. It turns heads at every corner. The touch screen command center is intuitive and logical. The only negative is I spend at least twenty to thirty minutes every day talking to total strangers about the car. Kinda makes me feel good, though. It is little wonder that Tesla has a two month backlog of orders for this incredible machine!...MoreHide
Pros Extremely inexpensive to drive. No maintenance. Revolutionary car!
Purchased as New
I've had my Model S for 8 months. After owning a Jag, BMW, Cadillac, and others, I don't think I'll ever go back to gas engines.
Pros its electric, rare
Cons braking is volatile, heavy, new product from new company.
Purchased as New
I've driven an S for a while (my company got one for PR purposes.) overall, the idea if this car is intriguing and tempting; but the car itself has many smaller, and some serious problems. It is heavy, very heavy; the suspension won't last on the potholes and bumps in most cities. The brakes are weird: this is partially solved by the driver learning them, but the real problem is the driver behind me- she/he isn't going to learn them. On ice, those same touchy brakes and that enormous weight add up to very expensive sliding. Range anxiety is still an issue, despite the well orchestrated media campaign. Plan on a major expense for battery replacement on x years (we'll see.) It is likely to cost in the $10,000's (couldn't get an answer from Tesla) - there goes your fuel savings...Apparently there have been problems with liquids being spilt on interior floor- caused an electrical short (I haven't tried it- need car running for media events.) I don't mean to trash Tesla- this is a first generation car from a new, small company. Competing with 60 -100 year old companies with extensive experience & safety knowledge is not a trivial matter. But buying a 1st or 2nd generation product is rarely a good idea.
Tesla is not a car company, its a Wall Street money grab using tax payer's money. Do some research on who lent the CEO the money to buy his stock.......MoreHide
