    Doesn't make a difference. Just don't get a green Subaru Forester please. We have enough of that

      Tesla’s are nice but definitely not economical....

      Do math on excel sheet my friend! Include the resale value, fuel costs and tax credits

      I have done the math.... Average lifespan of a car is 8 years or 150k miles..... if you are paying $35k for a model 3....... it ends up being about the same cost for a $25k Camry (40mpg).... or $23k Toyota Prius (50mpg).... with $9-10k on gas during that 8 year period.... so they are about the same price over 8 years.... but the cost of parts on a Tesla past the warranty period is crazy!!! And if you are not keeping it for 8 years then it’s not really worth it.... the resale is ok, but the resale on a Prius is actually better...... and the quality and style of a model 3 is on the same level as a Prius.... both are ugly and basic as shit!

      Did you literally forget about Autopilot with continuous updates?

      Meant to say earlier that the cost of parts on a Tesla is crazy.... not Prius

    If you plan on going on mountain trips in winter (if your out doors type / snowsports) I really recommend investing in an AWD SUV. AWD because of constant rain and snow and SUV because people here love leaving their brights on.

      Better use snow tires with those during the winter or else there will be no point in paying extra for AWD

      Skip AWD and just get snow tires. AWD don't add much on a snowy road anyway.
