Matt Danadel, owner of the YouTube channel of the same name, owns two Tesla Model Ys. In the latest video, he pointed out 6 downsides to this model based on personal experience for future buyers to consider before “putting the cash down”.
These disadvantages do not take into account the specific weaknesses of electric vehicles, such as the fact that users have to get used to charging that takes a long time and are always concerned about autonomy – Photo: Car and Driver
Tires wear out quickly: With fast, high-revving electric vehicles (especially Tesla’s flagship electric models), tires wear out significantly faster than those with internal combustion engines. This makes it more expensive for users during use – Photo: Tesla
No Spare Tire: The Tesla Model Y has no spare tire, and rapid tire wear can be a concern for users, especially when not all areas have Tesla’s Roadside Assistance rescue service. – Photo: Electrifying
Braking (brake): The Tesla Model Y’s regenerative braking system can help improve operating range, but it takes time to get used to the new driver – Photo: Electrek
Don’t customize cars: For car owners who “like to manipulate”, the Model Y in particular or Tesla cars in general are not suitable options. The company is ready to cut the warranty at any time if it detects inappropriate changes, and it is not easy to customize electric cars – Photo: Car and Driver
No Apple CarPlay / Android Auto: Tesla cars have their own software, which the company says is “more convenient” than Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, not everyone wants to get used to the Tesla interface instead of the familiar phone/tablet interface – Photo: Top Gear
Service center: Tesla cars are famous for their “chance” quality. With sales growing strongly, the number of vehicles with problems is also proportional, while the number of genuine service centers is quite limited even in the USA. Therefore, it is easy for users to wait in a short time for their car to be repaired – Photo: Tesla
