How can they simultaneously be so good and
Truncated your statement as I wouldn't go as far as that.
As an owner I have a funny relationship with my car. I can't imagine driving any other car for long distances. Pre-lockdown I was driving more miles than I have in decades and had rediscovered the pleasure of driving and travelling.
OTOH, I wish they would drop or slow the push toward FSD and focus on the areas. I know there are big prizes for the first to crack it, but, IMHO, self driving needs to be done across manufactures and in conjunction with regulatory frameworks. Our roads are designed to control drivers, not to facilitate automated cars.
I'd like to see a smaller car for the non-US market and also a car where I don't need to care about where and how it is parked. Who would let their Model 3 be used as a self-driving taxi in the UK? I have to let people know how to ope the doors so that the press the button rather than pull the door handle which is intended for emergencies and can damage the trim). My car is a utility, not something I should feel a need to cosset.
There are various other things, not least simplifying the screen. It's fine while driving and works really well, if you stick to the key info but there's too much detail in the infotainment and is clearly intended for when you are parked or being driven. Voice control is a workaround, but not as effective as Siri.
I wouldn't change the car, it's the best available IMO, but one of the best things about it is only that there is room left for competition, which is very encouraging for the future.
For me, at risk of sounding like a fanbois, then for what I need it's either a Tesla or no purchase. I know it doesn't float your boat and it isn't right for everybody. If I didn't need the range, charge time and network then my views might be different. There's no way I'd buy another ICE though.
