I can’t believe how convenient it is

Daily driver- I drive about 400kms a week for less than $1.20/100 kms.

I charge from spare solar power at home, rather than exporting to the grid.

The electricity company also offers me a charge plan from 12-6am every night to charge at 8c/kWh, which I can use if there isn’t much sun around.

With virtually no maintenance or running costs it has been a great move financially.

And leaving home every day with a full ‘tank’ battery is so convenient.

I won’t ever go back to the (ICE) combustion engine vehicles. Show details

Is the worry worth it?

It is an inescapable fact that watching the power approaching low and preparing one self for 30 minutes at the refill station will never outweigh the nice optics that come with the car. It’s a nice car, but until you can power up in the time it takes to fill a tank with petrol it’s just too many lost hours in one’s life. Show details

Phantom braking issues could get you killed

Have had vehicle for a year and generally works well. Have excellent driving record and have been driving for more than 30 years. Drove back from Melbourne to Sydney on 1/8/23 in dry, dark conditions with little traffic. Set cruise control set at 111km and went to overtake 2 road trains. Car hit the brakes for no reason and I was at 70km in seconds and fishtailing in the right lane. Could have hit the trucks on the left, barriers on the right or someone could have run up the back. The bottom line is the phantom braking could get you killed, your loved ones killed or anyone who has the misfortune of driving around you. Writing this as a community PSA. Posted similar msg on FB's Tesla Owners Australia, but they elected not to publish. Show details

Questions & Answers

Maica T. · Model 3 Rear Wheel Drive (2022-2024)

Tesla claim 491km at 100%. In reality, it was 439km at 100% fully charged. 3 months later, it is now only 436km 100% charged. So actual km range is way lower than advertised. A bit disappointed. I'm not sure why km reduced after 3 months ? Not sure if it continues to reducing km range

Yes I noticed this too. It’s so annoying.

I just read the Expert Review. I noticed in the section on Braking, you stated that the brakes weren't Brembo. I'd like to correct you on this. All 2021 Model 3s have Brembo front brakes. The Model 3 Performance also have single piston (sliding caliper) Brembo rear brakes. I do agree, that the brakes are more than adequate, when you need to apply them.

I live in Inner West Sydney (Leichhardt) and won't be able to charge at home. Only by running a cable across the pavement which suspect Council won't like even under a outdoor-rated protector strip. Chargers at Tramsheds and Broadway are fairly close to home however. Do you think Model 3 ownership is viable without home charging?
