It's a family need now.
But need a vehicle with good pickup and great power (Atleast equivalent to merc 350). 0 to 60 MPH in 6 secs, 300 HP!.
Since it won't be the usual Honda's and Toyota's need to know what option is best.
Car type is welcomed in comment 🤞
- Bank of The West / ConsultantGSWmoreModel x - fast, economic to run and beats any ml350/gl450 or likes any day.
- Wait time isn’t that bad, want one let me know. You can lease or buy. There are many (many and many) who have had Model x with 50,60,70k miles on long trips and haven’t heard of realibility issue. Check out tesla motors forum and you will find answers for everything (unlike blind lol)
All types of experience, questions, issues are discussed by a helpful community.
Btw - CA has the best supercharging network so you can charge a tesla quickly when you commute from BayArea to LA. Last weekend my friend did 1250 miles trip with a model 3 and as he had free charging at his hotel ended up paying $40 for supercharging and have had no issues through out the journey, indeed he was happy with his first long trip.

- Yes, but that's like 75 mins of wait on each full charge.
Usually on a trip to LA I don't take break. What I spend is just 5 mins or less at a gas station. (Shell on I5 generally).
Taking 90 min break after every 250 miles is a hell of an experience 🤐
Am sure Tesla is already working on fixing this situation. And will wait for it.Dec 28, 20182
- 1. Drive 250 miles max and find the nearest supercharger
2. Wait at least 45 mins to get to the next one
That’s a shitty experience when you’re traveling interstate, or even SF <-> LA. On a gas SUV you can make up to 350 miles on one tank and spend 5 mins at the station, which makes trips like SF <-> Seattle last only about 13 hrs (food stops included).
Honestly, I can wait till Tesla solves interstate traveling issues.Dec 28, 20183
- Blizzard TorbjornmoreGet a preowned.
I recently picked up an Audi A3. It is a 2017 and had 12k miles on it when I got it. It was a dealer loaner. I still have the factory warranty of 4 years/50k miles. Then as it’s certified preowned, I get an additional 2 years/50k. All in all I got a barely used Audi A3 for 60% of the new price and that comes with a 6 year/100k mile bumper to bumper warranty.
- I’d argue 12k miles driven by hundreds of people is not “barely used”. The probability that all of those people refilled the tank with 91+ and did not redline with a cold engine is pretty low.
Still the CPO warranties are great. I would look for another car after it expires since a dealer loaner seems like a huge risk to own long term.
- I am selling my Q7. 2015 with 53k miles.
Loaded with tech and all cool options.
Definitely fits your needs, let me know if you are interested.
- Apple cAIo1I have very clean car for you if you are interested ping me(Slick deal 8k and 75k miles)
