Michelle shared her Tesla experience with us. For those who often wonder why there is nothing new for him Model 3 Or Model y, This video provides some insight. It is important to point out that many people are in a hurry to buy a new car when the current car is fine. If your car is stuck with problems and money is a pitfall, it may be time to move on, if not, why rush?
If you have an old gas-powered car and plan to switch to EV, this is a good choice. However, if your car is not yet ready to be replaced, there is no reason to rush it. Mitchell was able to buy the Model 3 as soon as it launched, but with the fully capable Model S in this garage, there was no reason to bother.
