Very fair assessment, Tim. We never had the consistent phantom braking or the leaking frunk issues you did, but the rest is spot on. That ride quality grated on me for the few years we owned ours.

When we bought ours, I never really had an issue with Musk. However, when we decided to sell, his lack of self-control and frankly terrible personality had progressed to the point that selling the car was an easy choice. It’s a shame.

Loving the Ioniq 5 and the MME GT Premium. I consider them both upgrades from the MY.

I’ve debated repeatedly about changing out my model 3 for something else given the Elon antics. Very curious what the electric SUV is as we are going to be in the market for one very soon.

An excellent piece.

Reflecting back, the fact that Tim has gotten flack from Tesla fanatics over the years is truly inconceivable. While many automotive journalists rely on hyperbolic bullshit, Tim instead deals in thoughtful criticism and constructive praise.
