Why I still love my Model 3 after 3.6 years and almost 100,000 miles. Looking at my Tesla app, my Tesla Model 3 odometer now reads: 99,377 miles. By the time this is published, I will probably be over 100,000 miles. I am a huge proponent of green technology, and in particular electric vehicles. I […]

It seems like most Americans are routinely hounded by annoying, scammy, spam phone calls telling you that you need to buy an extended warranty for your car. (Though, I haven’t been getting those for a while. Thanks, Biden?) I’m not sure why or how those became such common spam calls, but if you are indeed […]

Seven years ago, I put down my AU$1500 deposit and sat tight and anxious waiting for my Tesla Standard Range Plus (SR+) to arrive. Which she did, three and half years later.

I probably saw news of the new Tesla blind spot camera feature when it was introduced in December 2021 and then forgot about it, or maybe it was somehow in my social media and Google News blind spot (haha) and I never noticed it at all.

We’ve had our Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+) for a little more than 3 years. It’s sitting at 28,698 miles, or about 9,500 miles a year. (True, we’re not road warriors. Part of the low mileage compared to the US average is that the car hardly moved during the covid lockdowns. Part of […]
