Breaking in a Model 3

Опубликовано: 28 июн 2018
Quick review of my First time seeing a model 3 in person, shoutout to Derek from sound in motion for letting me try out his 2 week old baby. So is the model 3 any good? Should I get one? Is it faster than my p85?

  • Thing is the 3 can stay at 220 (bjorn) for a long time, while the S will have power limits very fast

  • Truckla :D

  • Looks like a Porsche

    • From the front

  • Rich's Attorney: If you drag race in a parking lot and no one can hear it did it occur?

  • that LCD screen looks really slapdash. Like those CarMP3 projects back in the 90s.

  • Hey Rich Looks like your Buddy Peed himself after he got out of the car (wet spot next to driver door)

  • How much per year do you have to pay for the cars internet access and charging costs?

  • To me the model 3 says Im a poser and poor. If I could afford an ev I would only get an s

  • Rear wheel drive base model model 3?

  • Goofy frog look? I don't think so. You want to see a goofy frog look, that would be the 1st Gen Nissan Leaf.

  • I'll still have my Tessie shaken, not stirred. Don't try this with a M3-2 motor with lighter 18' wheels and sticky tires...whole new ballgame.

  • That was one quiet drag race!

  • The model 3 Owner sounds and looks like Steve Jobs. :p

  • Pretty sure if everyone on the comments talking negatively about the lack of physical buttons and how everything is on a single screen got to drive one you would change your mind. The first few days you are constantly adjusting things. After a week or so there’s very little you need to access on the screen while driving. I rarely change the auto wiper speed. Rarely change the position of my vents. For the most part it’s seat heaters and on/off ac and temp. I touch nothing else while driving. All those 10+ screens are stuff once you set up you forget about.

  • I hope there's some way to turn that screen off for night driving. Seems like it would kill your night vision.

  • What about windshield defrost/defog? Door windows defrost/defog? Critical in colder climates.

  • To each their own, but this car is more than cool...beyond cool...and beyond beautiful. I LOVE the Model S, but the 3 is just stunning.

  • Bland interior? It's incredibly beautiful.

  • I think that this is a reasonably unfair comparison. The model 3 is rear wheel drive and starts at 49k for the long range when they sold it. And if you were to buy a new p85d model a is would be like 80k. Me and my dad have the awd model 3 and love it, overall good video I hope you start to want the car.

  • Just as a comment about the air vents, those are one of those things that set once and never move them.

  • The wood panel is so tacky looking

  • If you can hack a Tesla, collect the data, and control the car, and the customers information is linked to the car’s computer, You’d essentially have their entire route and frequent locations in addition to their conversations, credit card and payment information, health data, and much much more.

  • Alexa, point vent at drivers face?


  • Tesla builds cars far more complex than the average human needs!

  • i still dont like the minimalist interior....much prefer the model S

  • THE most anti-climactic drag race I've ever seen! The lack of engine noise was weird. It felt like a scene from a silent movie!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my M3, but that was the first time I've seen a video of 2 tesla's racing and I was surprised at just what a lack of noise there was. It reminded me of the old orange-crate derby when I was a kid.... drag your splinter-machines to the top of a hill and ride them to the bottom... first one there wins!

  • Again thanks for your post. Now we are talking !! This is the 6th or 7th year of Tesla, the price has come down and become affordable. they also did work very hard to get the kinks out. I remember getting my first mid engine G35 coupe. I luved this car the first day I laid my Eyes on it. But I waited till they got the kinks out and that took about 3 years. But I did purchase A used 2005 G35 6 speed with the rev engine which produced 298 HP coupled with the 6 speed And sport package. It had 15,000 mile on it. With all the cars I've owned in the past ( Corvette, and BMWs) this has been the most enjoyable one and the look is timeless. And I still own it. As I move forward in my life And understand eco. This new Tesla 3 really interests me. Even if does not have The rumble of my G35 coupe.

  • The most awkwardly silent drag race 😂😂😂

  • I want a rebuilt one

  • Your love affair with them shitty door handles is over? Nothing lasts forever.

  • That interior is garbage.

  • Braking, not breaking.

  • The quietest race ever lol

  • That Model 3 looks like a straight downgrade from the P85. And considering what the P85 is, it could potentially be sold (as a refreshed variant) at Model 3 price range by now.

  • There is no way my wife would put up with a model 3. I'm an early adopter kind of guy who loves tinkering and get GUI type logic immediately and do not mind it. My wife however HATES anything that does not make a super simple function obvious. Light switch yes, Swipe a tablet and enter a menu... no way She would freak out. Tesla need to study Ergonomics. The reason cockpits are still full of manual switches and circuit breakers is thats the best/safest way to ensure a status change has been commanded and actuated.

  • NO HUD = Major fail

  • They make like a screen protecter for that giant screen

  • incredibly ugly , aint worth even the explaining diffusing whatever. must be a intended joke or insult. hopefully teslas 1time off gremlin

  • douche baggery at its finest !

  • douche baggery at its finest !

  • This interior is the most disgusting thing I've ever seen yo, why is it so plain AF? Kinda like their food I suppose..

  • Wow this dude tries to find any excuse to hate on this car wtf?!?

  • I think he should have taken the extra weight out

  • I like how it looks, but I really want instrument cluster in front of me when im driving. I think Ill rather get used S than 3.

  • I like the idea but Tesla went too far away from functionality.

  • The model S is the performance version and that’s not even the performance model 3.

  • I would hate a big ipad as the entirety of the dash. Guess I'm old school

  • Holy crap, I thought the hood panel gap was bad in the beginning of the video, check out the rear door gaps @ 8:00 ! What a piece of 60k crap! Not even worth the 35k promised price e, but 60k for THAT? People are stupid. 😨

  • 8:09 Is that door not closed properly or does it just look like that?

  • Now race it against a Performance model 3

  • I have said this already and not to sound like a broken record but you Sir Rich May have contributed inadvertently to Mr musk’s decision to design the car in such a fashion. Why? To prevent and or reduce drastically skilled and highly motivated persons such as yourself from rebuilding a salvage model 3. I may be wrong but Mr. E. Musk is a problem solver, though I could be wrong in my theoretical analysis. Bless you Sir Rich.

  • could have Tesla vs Tesla drag races all day/night long without the cops showing up

  • w0w this is what I pictured when I think nerds and drag race.. hahaha that was just terrible:) hahahahahahahahas

  • The Model 3 is an awesome smartphone that has a car accessory plugged into it.

  • YOU'RE LIKE IRONMAN!!!!! Hilarious laidback and creative! I found ur channel two days ago because i recently did research on teslas (my dream car) for my first car. Im excited despite hearing so many issues about them, u made me feel safer with the idea that anythings repairable with the right skillset and heart. Tesla should thank u bc if it weren't for u i prob wouldnt get many issues with production hehe

  • Why Tesla didn't think to put a HUD for the driver blows my mind :)

  • Instead of those stupid compartments they should have had another LCD with always on air conditioning buttons that made more sense (and other buttons).

  • I'm not a fan of that big Samsung 65" TV screen looks like a distraction to me, I don't like it,...Delores is way better looking inside, ijs...

  • That helpt me alot breaking in my neighbors model 3 .

  • Listening to two teslas drag race must be how deaf people hear a gasoline drag race.

  • Hey rich... I'm a fan💯💯💯

  • Telsla took those door handle design from a show called kindigit

  • A drag race with electrics is sort of hoe-hum, without the engine sounds.

  • Your car would.look so much better without those rack up top. Those makes it look like a Subaru. Sad

  • Buttonless controls is a step backward. Anything that takes your eyes off the road is bad. ANYTHING! In « everything is working » Normal mode voice control would be a step forward. But, I’m old school, give me a big panel of rocker switches.

  • Rich, any way i can contact you? Looking to buy a salvage P85, and could use your help on it. Finding one / parts advice etc. Would be happy to have some extra content for your channel etc. Let me know thanks!

  • You can replace the tablet with one that allows you to reposition it wherever you want, including directly in front of you, and it can perfectly emulate analog gauges, if you want those. Price? $17,759. StankBoi Enterprises.

  • wtf rich!! leather is shit... keepmit vegan stop killing animals just for believing it's better..

  • 2:28 that’s what she said. 🍆💦👩

  • 👍🏽👍🏽😎

  • 4:00 how does your mom do it in a regular car? Does she complain about touching the vents too?

  • Hey Rich, young tesla enthusiast here. Make sure you blur the plates on all the cars! Anyone here in MA can get their information

  • hey rich! i have an issue with my main screen on my new model 3. I've searched up and down the internet and forums and have not found one single person with my issue which is the main and only screen on my model 3 which does not turn on anymore. At first, the screen was turning on and off intermittently and now currently i can barely get it to turn on. I've tried everything and called customer support and did all the hard reboots and what not. A few people have suggested it could be a faulty temp sensor or something to do with the computer coolant? I have an appointment with the service center but any insight would be great as you are the most knowledgeable person i have heard of on teslas. Thanks!

  • no hud, what was Tesla thinking. The one car in the whole industry that needs one.

  • I really enjoy this channel

  • If you cant figure out how the vents work then are arent fit to drive a car in traffic

  • Open the pod bay doors, Hal.

  • wait who gets a rear wheel drive in New England snow

  • That race at the end just broke my heart. With absolutely no engine noise it just doesn't feel the same.
