          You are an even bigger fool if you think the FSD beta that they are running in USA is level 2 autonomy. You ignorance is hilarious.

            @dealsucker: Tesla FSD is nowhere close to level 5, which is the true self driving level.

            The term Full Self Driving car that Tesla uses is highly deceptive and misleading to consumers, and it is already sued in Germany https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/14/tesla-autopilot-self-driving...

              @dhnqt: When did i say its level 5? Its definitely NOT level 2.

            • +1 vote

              @dhnqt: Excellent thank you! That's exactly my point! Before I started my test drive I wasn't made aware of how much it could do on its own. Not till I finished the drive I was made aware of the limitations. For a regular customer I'd expect the tesla employee to tell me exactly what the limitations of the car before I start the drive and they didn't. This added to level on dissatisfaction.

      Unpleasant experience, car didn't deliver on all these promises…. ?
      For such a big paraph of text, there's next to no information in here?

      Sounds like your entire test drive revolved around Full Self Driving, which the car either didn't have, or you didn't enable.

      There's more to the car than the FSD, maybe you would have enjoyed things more if you didn't get so hung up on that side of it.

      •  

        I tried to appreciate the car but I personally couldn't. It's not my cup of tea and not my kind of car. That's why I said in the end people will have their own opinions. Nowadays it's hard to share an opinion without a bunch of people attacking your views. Mind you I drove in crammed Sydney streets so the car possibly drives better in open roads and would be better in Canberra.

        •  

          Nah man. Some people fit certain cars better. Everyone is allowed to 'like' whatever car they want.

          Tesla is a good value imho only because I want to fund the research that gives us the level 5 FSD.

          •  

            @Naigrabzo: I'm not sure even with level 5 FSD whether it will be safe for people. It doesn't matter how idiot proof you can make technology as there will always be risk involved. The FSD is a gimmick because it doesn't appear to be practical in my opinion because no matter how perfect it is made there will always be people who will crash their cars just because they have the ability to use this 'FSD' functionality. Now I know anyone can hurt themselves with misuse of anything practically but when it can cost your life a lot more easily on the raods, you'd want to rethink the choice to use these cars. Article here doesn't paint a good picture regardless of people's idiocy: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-04-19/two-dead-tesla-driver...

            •  

              @thousandsuns: Agree about idiocy and also concerns about hax. Did you watch "upload" on prime?

              I would feel safer with a driver who will never get tired or emotional; or become old and slow.

              All we really need is to show that FSD (level 6 or whatever) is safer than human drivers. Even if it's slightly safer, even slightly better on traffic, slightly easier on older people getting to appointments and slightly better on environment to just have one car for 4 people roaming the streets by itself, it will become mainstream.

              FSD is not here yet but I am strongly suspicious it is the future.

      No you didn't.

      The autopilot works around curves without an issue, and much better than BMW or Mercedes systems. It works perfectly on Freeways in Australia and will drive you hundreds of kilometres, changing lanes by itself and navigating between freeways and around corners without any human intervention.

      Maybe pushing the autopilot lever down was a big complicated for you?

      And the Model 3 performance doesn't belong in the same boat as the C63 or M3. It's much much faster and costs $70k less. It's in a class of its own.

      •  

        It's MY EXPERIENCE not yours. No need to force your thoughts onto mine. I know what I drove and I was driving with the autopilot on and it is NOT perfect. It also comes down to what sort of roads you drive on. You can't change roads and lanes to suit your car. Go buy one and enjoy it mate. Better yet but a few. It's your money you blow it. Who tf cares?

        And yes it costs 70k less and its made in China and it isn't Merc or BMW. It's not an expensive luxury car. So you're right it's NOT in the same class. Poor man's wannabe luxury car. Sure why not?

    •  

      Since when have I ever said this is a review? Lol. It's simply my experience. The car in my opinion is trash. That's my view. If you don't agree then that's up to you? So many people here trying to glorify this car when it isn't all that and could do a lot better as said. I currently drive a c200. I'll upgrade to a c63 over a gimmicky tesla any day. All of you are free to buy one if you have the coin to spend and feel that passionate about it.

    Call me a saddo but the big seller for me on Tesla's is their ANCAP safety rating. Overall they're right up there with Volvo and best of the current available electric cars (I think?).

    Now if only I could afford one. Sadly they won't give me much for my hail stone damaged manual Hyundai i30 in trade.

          I think it will be closer to $300k starting price here. It's more than a base S class which is $250k.

      If bought with a referral code you get at least 1500km of 'free' supercharging. Tesla actually dispense this is an allowance of kWh which on a standard range model 3 is more like 2500km.

        Tesla is more like iPhones. Perishables Vs non perishables.

        India street vendors probably don't have as many rules as ours do.

        •  

          Selling a car in china also has less rules than selling it here. That plus the teslas are made in china vs having to be shipped to aus (and all the rules associated with shipping to aus) would mean a tesla here would cost more than in china.

    •  

      Chinese makes probably 5 times less money than Australian. So you probably have Tesla for quite cheap mate. Small little straight line logic do not always show the full picture

      They need to correct their pricing. We are being ripped off for sure.

      MG of course. If you can live with the lower range in exchange for the feel of $20k left in your pocket.

      •  

        MG is a poor EV

        its and ICE car with the EV engine thrown in

        poor efficiency, range, high rolling resistance, exceedingly heavy

        it might be cheap but it's the worst way to go about building an EV and it wont last

        meanwhile a tesla will survive 300km+ on it's original battery and is a viable replacement for an ICE vehicle

        you get what you pay for

        i'd consider MG when they actually design an EV from the ground up, as for their current cheap SUV within 5 years of use the car will have such limiting range that you'll have no choice but to try an sell it to an unsuspecting buyer

        •  

          Not sure where you get your info from. The ZS EV is a lot more car than a Model 3, and it still weighs less.

          The different form factor limits the efficiency somewhat, but it's still better than the Model X for example.

          Not everyone wants to pay 50% extra for some extra range with a model 3. Let's face it, if range anxiety is your thing you won't want an EV anyway.

          As to battery life span: warranties are identical, cooling technologies too, I see no reason why MG batteries should last shorter than Tesla ones.

          Only time will tell which car is the better long term investment, what I hear of Tesla's build quality is not very reassuring though.

      Lots of weirdly specific cases here, I'm sure you could come up with a similar (or worse) list for any other car brand.

      That Tesla Death tracker is actually extremely impressive though, although the data is obviously cherry picked. 1.3+ million worldwide deaths by car and this list only accounts for 170 of those deaths over the last few years…

      I think it's a matter of time, batteries are getting cheaper and EVs are simpler, so should become cheaper gradually. More competition in this area should help as well.

    this post actually got me considering a Tesla. I'm on market for a new car.
    And after watching this review, I'll give this car a pass
    https://www.carsguide.com.au/ev/tesla-model-3-2021-review-lo...

    It is far too different from a conventional car. First issue is the speedo not central to the driver. That ticks me off. And everything is controlled though a flat touch screen. No thanks. Lacks the touch and feel of what a conventional car would be.

    The BMW 3 or Merc C class is much better IMO for similar money.

    • +2 votes

      So you've not driven the car, but in your expert opinion the 3 series or C class is better. OK. sure.

      • +1 vote

        You don't always need to test drive a car to persuade yourself to get one.

        Face value is equally important and for me it hasn't ticked many boxes on face value.

        Firstly the Model 3 design is very boring
        The interior is lacklustre
        No i don't want to look at a rectangular screen to see my speedo.

        This car doesn't suit everyone and that's fine. Each to their own.

      duuuurrr, if you don't like the touch screen. Wait till you see what the new Merc interiors are, and by essence, all the other car makers dashs are.
      It's all going touch screen unfortunately.

    •  

      I love how you say "It is far too different from a conventional car" as if you've actually made a valid point.

      But anyways, thanks for letting us know you're going to give the car a pass.
      Maybe stick with something a bit more "conventional" for your tastes.
