The Tesla Model Y Is the Tesla Everyone Is Waiting For
Doug DeMuro
The Tesla Model Y is the newest Tesla -- and it's eagerly anticipated. Today I'm reviewing the Model Y, and I'm going to show you the quirks and features of the Tesla Model Y during a thorough tour of the Model Y. Then I'm driving the Tesla Model Y, and I'm going to tell you what it's like on the road.

    Quality 7? That's high for a VW... Jetta is the third least reliable car in the states according to Consumer Reports.

    MSRP $52k and will probably sell for $65k+ for the next 6 months. Doug: That's relatively affordable.

    Jeez! 78 degrees, the dawg will be fried! Also Doug does it have S. Africa mode - 20,000 V door handles?

    I'll admit, I really wish that the Y had the same power doors as on the X.

    Why wouldn't the alerts all be focused to the driver anyways? What passenger needs or wants to hear the car beeping? Actually I don't want my car to ever beep unless the engine is about to blow up or I left a door open.

    Y not put more batteries in those big empty cargo storages for more range?

  • All No

    Sounds like a stupid car

  • nobodynemoq

    As for the rear seat passengers unable to use climate control - I'm sure, that one day Tesla will release an update where these passengers will be able to do it with their phones

  • nobodynemoq

    If there is a dog mode, where is the Doug mode?

  • Crippleback

    Why go ask a dealer when we have Doug DeMuro?

  • Reiseliebhaber

    It's beautiful but it's still luxury! I think that Tesla could create a low cost, mini car, designed for the city, like Toyota Aygo (but electric)

  • Johnny Volvox

    I don't understand why Tesla doesn't put a front dash?? Who df wants to look to the screen to the right for driver information? Its literally a deal breaker for me.

    All of these comments are lying! "Joe Mode" is for when the owner of the vehicle shows it to a passenger to trick them into saying "Who's Joe?" and the owner would proceed with "JOE MAMA!"

  • 0150r

    Crossover? It's just a hatchback with marketing. I have a model 3 but would rather have the Y just for the extra room in the back. It would make sleeping in the back (taking naps at superchargers on road trips) much easier.

    Was the model X you were comparing this to - the long range? Surely the performance X is significantly quicker?

  • codemiesterbeats

    Funny that the "go fast" performance stuff is usually software with tesla... so yea tesla is like the game companies with pay to play lol it is also attached to the owner... so if you buy it used that option is no longer available (from what I can gather)


    what if the back USB ports when plugged into your phone allowed you to control your air and seat temp with the Tesla App...Ill wait here

    As oil is cheap, Hertz etc is dumping it's fleet and car prices will be falling off a cliff, why would someone spend so much on a car of dubious reliability from a company that consistently loses huge amounts of money every year that needs charging up on a regular basis? I'm not seeing the market here, people will by trying to buy food and getting shelter.

    • Graham

      @Kumo G Congrats on being lucky with your model X, good luck after the warranty period. All car prices will drop off a cliff, I did not mean exclusively EVs: There's a huge glut out there just as Hertz prepares for chapter 11. Read up on it to save surprises later, autosales have literally collapsed. Well made IC cars don't need that much maintenance - you know EVs also have oil changes etc too? My 32 year old diesel car still gives me 45mpg+ with a 600 mile range for peanuts, servicing is basic and simple DIY every 2-3 years as needed. I would consider a Toyota Hybrid, but never a pure EV. As for your landfill argument - I agree - but Teslas are one of the worst brands for supplying spare parts, helping DIY or indie mechanics and even buying a used one from them is problematic - they always only want to sell new. There is no visible lifecycle planning for a Tesla, it's far far easier to both repair and recycle other brands of cars.

    • Kumo G

      I own what is considered Tesla's least reliable model, the Model X. It has never given me an issue where it didn't take me to my destination every single time. In fact I haven't had to do a single lick of maintenance in 20 months of ownership thus far. The same cannot be said for my previous Honda, Acura, Lexus cars/minivans nor 5 Fords. But even dropping the Tesla argument, even a simple Nissan Leaf would provide the same reliability. Even the frowned upon Chevy Bolt is GM's most reliable vehicle per their own dealer repair data. As for prices falling off a cliff - not sure where you're making that up from. Good luck trying to find any BEV that depreciates faster than it's ICE counterpart with exception of Nissan's Leaf because of lack of thermal battery management (water cooling). The current status quo enjoys people buying cheap gas cars that need constant maintenance to keep their combustion chambers running within limits and governments enjoy tax revenue from constantly flipping these resources. Anybody who appreciates a well made product that can last for years would appreciate that in a BEV over an ICE car. I guess in today's world of disposable trash goods and endless landfill people will always choose the option that appears cheaper in the short term. Penny wise pound foolish.

    good review

    what if you're just parked in a parking lot and the space between the car and the next is a bit small. century mode will get activated many times as people walk between cars

    This is definitely a vehicle built for Doug. It’s packed full of gimmicks. Ugly as shit, but you don’t notice the funky lines when you’re too busy playing with the gimmicks. You don’t notice the ridiculously piss poor build quality either. And that’s simply NOT acceptable in any vehicle that can cost as much as 60k after everything’s paid. You would think that by now Tesla would’ve finally corrected the build quality issues. But they’re not even close. I think they simply gave up. Personally, I suspect the factory’s foundation simply isn’t strong enough to withstand the weight of all the robots being used to assemble the vehicles. That would certainly account for the numerous misaligned panels as those robots were dealing with induced vibrations from other nearby robots throughout the factory. That’s what happens when you use an old factory to build a modern day vehicle. Tesla should’ve built an all new factory instead of buying that old Fremont facility. This car looks more like something the Amish would be pulling along behind a horse than a modern car.
