Check Out This Brand-New In-Depth Tesla Model 3 Review

JUL 27 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 23

Here’s a detailed look at Tesla Model 3 features, as well as answers to user-submitted questions.

Two months ago, we stumbled upon a fantastic Tesla Model 3 review on a YouTube channel that we don’t usually search for such content. However, it was so in-depth and well done, we felt compelled to share it with you. The Money Guy Show focuses on investment advice, but just happens to produce excellent YouTube content, even about cars!

Whether or not you want to follow the Money Guy’s financial advice is up to you. Nonetheless, he offers a solid dialogue about Model 3 pros and cons. Since the channel’s first review of the popular electric sedan, they’ve been working up this sequel. Now, we get to see a closer look at the car’s most notable features, along with answers to questions generated from the original, detailed review.

Many of the YouTube commenters found the Money Guy’s first review to be one of the best they’d watched. That’s quite telling, since many of these types of videos spark loads of negative talk in the comment section. Hopefully, this video is just as well-received.

Be prepared to set aside a decent chunk of time to check out this newest review. Let us know what you think in the comment section below. Even better, keep the conversation going on our Forum. Start a new thread about this article and make your point heard.

Video Description via The Money Guy Show on YouTube:

In this Tesla Model 3 review, we do a deep dive on features such as autopilot, valet mode, navigation, audio quality, and much more! We also answer and address your comments from our previous Tesla video series. Buckle up, this is going to be a fun ride!

Range: 310 miles; 136/123 mpg-e. Still maintaining a long waiting list as production ramps up slowly, the new compact Tesla Model 3 sedan is a smaller and cheaper, but no less stylish, alternative, to the fledgling automaker’s popular Model S. This estimate is for a Model 3 with the “optional” (at $9,000) long-range battery, which is as of this writing still the only configuration available. The standard battery, which is expected to become available later in 2018, is estimated to run for 220 miles on a charge.

Yeah they do good car reviews

I like how they touched on Autopilot and explained it a little bit. Autopilot is a phenomenal ASSIST tool and works brilliantly under the correct circumstances. In my experience, it only took about 15 minutes to understand completely, wasn’t complicated, and essentially came down to ensuring lines on the road are well marked, which isn’t hard to monitor.

Great review!

Good to know that autopilot works brilliantly and is easy to understand. I did not pay to activate it when I got my car because I wanted to drive as opposed to being driven. At the same, I wasn’t sure whether the technology was ready for prime time. I will consider activating it in a few years.

Honestly, I’ll probably bring down the wrath of many haters out there, but Autopilot (to me) is a no-brainer. It’s phenomenal when it’s used correctly and under the right conditions. And the more you use it, the better you get at understanding what it’s going to do and how to manage it.

Cheers!

Autopilot is fun to use, but it lulls the brain into a false sense of security. The upshot is probably fewer minor crashes but a higher rate of fatalities. There’s a reason the FAA discourages pilots from relying on it.

I love how he compared it to a twelve-years-old holding the steering wheel. It really brings home the fact that no matter how well it seems to be doing most of the time, you should never stop monitoring it closely.

Any data to back up that assertion?

Liked the “nice horn” request. Have a Chevy Volt and use the pedestrian horn often exactly per his request.

I do to! I love having the easy-to-use gentle horn that gets pedestrian attention without scaring the daylights out of ’em.

I was disappointed that they got rid of the pedestrian horn on the gen 2 Volt. I missed it after we traded in for our MY17.

I can not count the number of times I have driven up behind people walking down the center of parking lots with no idea my Volt is behind them. Scores at least, perhaps over 100 times. I have learned to chirp at them earlier than i used to. But i have to admit it is funny to see them jump. The horn would just be cruel.

I roll down my window and say “vroom, vroom” in a pleasant but condescending tone- always with a smile. In Southern California the pedestrians own the streets and parking lots … until they get run over.

Hahaha, unfortunately many of them move to vegas…. Kadunk. If only they would understand same rules apply to the road whether walking or driving. Pedestrians are not king of the road and will not win against a car.

Their first comment about the quirk with the back up camera and playing music has an easy solution. First why are you changing songs or messing with anything on the screen while you are backing up? Just don’t do that. Change your song after you back up and are going forward. Second, if the song has “bad words” or whatever like he mentioned you can simply turn the volume all the way down on the scroll wheel on the steering wheel while you are backing up.

I think the point here is that software should be engineered with the unexpected input in mind. If everybody followed the normal sequence of operations all the time, the software development would be a lot easier but the final results would not be as interesting.

That was a very helpful review and I appreciate the lack of fanboism.

What I liked about the review was that the guy owned the car for 3 months before creating this video. This gives it a more mature perspective and lends more credence to his opinions.

Some people try to review the car the next day after they get it.

This is a follow up review. The previous one did show lack of familiarity with the rear camera. I got it right the first time I drove out of delivery center.

Watched the previous ones and enjoyed them when they came out. Love how he said it is a $50 000 odd car if you can’t afford a $50K car don’t buy one because of the rebate.

Yet another positive Tesla Model 3 review.

Time running out for Mr. Jim Chanos and his anti-Tesla Chanos gang… tick-tock… though Jim’s gang is getting a tad smaller as they have started to cut-away from Jim to save themselves.

Jim is not catching any breaks lately…

It’s not just Tesla sticking it to Jim… it’s also Dunkin Donuts!

Jim loosing big-time against Dunkin Donuts!

Perhaps they will name a donut after him: The Chanos

… puffy on the outside hallow in the middle.

I’m going to drive my Tesla through a Dunkin Donuts drive-through… just for the giggles.

I’m not a big fan of Jim Chanos, but today he is joined by Steve Eisman (of the Big Short fame). Perhaps there are enough worrisome signs to warrant some caution with the long TSLA positions.

Eisman & Chanos

…birds of a feather

Looks to me like Eisman throwing a lifeline to his buddy Chanos.

Chanos calling in all his you-owe-me chips won’t save him from a massive TSLA squeeze…

Chanos also needs a donuts lifeline.

Don’t forget billionaire David Einhorn getting crushed on his Tesla short too… and the idiot Montana Skeptic who was recently outed as working for a company invested big in oil.
