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. Well, recently, while going through my settings for something […]

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Sat, 03 Sep 2022 23:38:19 +0000

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 […]

Tesla Aero Hubcap Replacement: Hub & Lug Nut Covers — Quick Installation & Review (Video)

I recently lost one of the original aero hubcaps our Tesla Model 3 SR+ came with. It seems that driving into a large amount of standing water in the midst of a ginormous Florida thunderstorm tore it off. (Or it was stolen.) It was quite sad to lose a hubcap, and a couple of days […]

One of our writers, Fritz Hasler, recently wrote a short review of his Tesla Model 3 Long Range after 75,000 miles and nearly 3 years of ownership. We’ve had our Model 3 Standard Range for just slightly longer than Fritz has had his, but we’ve driven ours far less. I’ll wait to write a full […]

Last night I wrote an article “10 Best Things About Owning A Tesla Model 3.” I’m in the media, so I have to be sure to engage in false balance from time to time. So, in response to the article above, here’s a piece on the 10 worst things about owning a Tesla Model

We’ve had our Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus for about 5 months now. The car is a wonderful vehicle and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. (Though, I frequently debate with myself if I’d prefer the Model 3 or the Model Y.)

Waiting For Tesla Full Self Driving, These Are My Top Questions & Thoughts (As A User)

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Wed, 22 Jan 2020 12:10:48 +0000

I’ll admit it — I’m super eager for the first edition of Tesla “Full Self Driving” to roll out. Before critics start freaking out, I should make clear that I don’t expect to nap, work, or watch movies while using initial iterations of Full Self Driving. I currently use Autopilot a ton, and I’m well aware that it is handling most of the driving just fine while I’m essentially a simple passenger, but I do keep my hands on the wheel and constantly scan the road like a pretend driver fully focused on acting out the role in search of an Oscar (or at least a Teen Choice Award)

Tesla Model 3 Trunk Organizer & Frunk Cooler From EVANNEX — CleanTechnica Review

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Sun, 03 Nov 2019 23:33:36 +0000

We recently received a Tesla Model 3 trunk organizer and a frunk/trunk cooler from EVANNEX. Aside from floor mats to protect the original Tesla-installed flooring, I consider these the top two Model 3 aftermarket items that just about everyone could benefit from. (Though, pneumatic trunk and frunk hood openers have me drooling, and I do have some other fun aftermarket products to review.)

When you buy a new car, your new car, you want it to stay in a perfect, kind of new way for as long as possible. At the beginning, you wipe each little mark off, get rid of every little spec as soon as you see it, vacuum every piece of sand (as if it was even possible living in Florida after going to the beach…). But, let’s be honest, sharing this new car with two little kids is not easy at all. The car is not a museum where you are not allowed to touch anything, right? And those kids are not museum visitors

“If You Didn’t Buy A Tesla, You Just Made A Mistake”

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said something similar to the headline above on the quarterly Tesla conference call a few hours ago. It perhaps made me smile and laugh more than anything else on the conference call. The reason is simple, and it’s also why I’m keeping this article short
