Subtitles

  • - Well I've had a few weeks to get to know
  • - My new cheap Tesla and so far Elan wow
  • - You've really outdid yourself with this
  • - Thing I haven't had a single problem yet
  • - And really there is a lot to like about
  • - This thing I like oh but at the risk of
  • - Getting taken off the must family
  • - Christmas card list I do have a few
  • - Things that I hate but but hate is such
  • - A strong word don't be mad anyway to
  • - Review my last few videos about a month
  • - Ago I found the cheapest Tesla Model S
  • - With a clean title available for only
  • - Thirty two thousand five hundred dollars
  • - On autotrader.com a place that I also
  • - Write for and link below is an article
  • - Where I detail all the things that I
  • - Love and hate about this thing so you
  • - Don't have to watch you can read of it
  • - If you want to anyway my Tesla has the
  • - Larger 85 kilowatt battery which is good
  • - But it also has a hundred and seven
  • - Thousand miles which is really high for
  • - One of these and I had to pay a grand
  • - Over the asking price because people
  • - Were beating down his door to get this
  • - Thing he lived in California I lived in
  • - Kansas and he was gonna raise this price
  • - Anyway so I had to pay a thousand
  • - Dollars more and a thousand dollars to
  • - Ship it here to Kansas
  • - But even at thirty four thousand five
  • - Hundred dollars invested in it now I
  • - Think it was totally worth it
  • - He was the original owner of this Tesla
  • - And he took great care of it really good
  • - Care of it it's beautiful a lot of the
  • - Common problems with these early Model
  • - S's had already been taken care of with
  • - The previous owner like the door handles
  • - Three out of four have been replaced but
  • - There still is one $1,000 dollar handle
  • - Waiting to fail also the four thousand
  • - Dollar touchscreen inside has been
  • - Replaced which is great it's giant it's
  • - Huge and the drive motor the thing that
  • - Makes this thing go has been replaced
  • - Twice twice I know crazy but it's the
  • - Latest version so it shouldn't break
  • - It's still on its original battery and
  • - My last video showed it's still putting
  • - Out about ninety four percent of its
  • - Original capacity after six years and
  • - Over a hundred thousand miles it's
  • - Pretty impressive but electronic battery
  • - Aside would you just look at it I mean
  • - Look at it
  • - I've always loved this Tesla and the way
  • - It looks because that's so clean so
  • - Smooth and its design it's just
  • - Beautiful it manages to look great
  • - Without any crazy styling embellishments
  • - Like funky creases or spoilers or other
  • - Stupid things so many cars and electric
  • - Ones in particular are just so over
  • - Styled it looks ridiculous but this
  • - Thing is vague it looks like a vaguely
  • - European car and it's just so clean and
  • - Uncluttered of course looking vaguely
  • - European does help with a styling who
  • - Doesn't want a European looking
  • - Beautiful car and you can bet the lead
  • - Designer Franz von hold Hassan wasn't
  • - Born in Kentucky but even European cars
  • - Are over styled a lot of the time like
  • - The designers just can't help but find a
  • - Way to make their cars hideous you know
  • - Put their own little selfish
  • - Embellishments like a kid with a
  • - Graffiti tag and none of that is on this
  • - Tesla the shape of the rear is even good
  • - Which is rare most hatchbacks they can't
  • - Figure out oh I don't have the key this
  • - One second back to the hatch back there
  • - It's a hatchback it's so practical but
  • - Most the time hatchbacks they can't
  • - Figure out how to design and make it
  • - Look pretty but it's not the case with
  • - This Tesla oh you are so beautiful to me
  • - Still there is one thing that I hate out
  • - Here and that's this ridiculous horrible
  • - Panel gap it took me a few days before I
  • - Notice it but now that I see it I can't
  • - Unsee it panel gaps and weird fitment of
  • - Panels isn't really new to Tesla and if
  • - Anything it got worse when they unveiled
  • - The new Model X but I mean they're new
  • - To the manufacturing process so I get it
  • - Elon I couldn't build a pinewood derby
  • - Car myself so really Who am I to judge
  • - Moving on to other things I love and you
  • - Can't love a Tesla without loving the
  • - Technology you just that's the coolest
  • - Part about it you've got these
  • - Retractable door handles and this giant
  • - Touchscreen inside and really there's no
  • - Key it's just a little black pebble
  • - There's no on or off switch it just
  • - Knows you get inside of it it runs the
  • - Air conditioning it starts up you put it
  • - In gear it goes even when you're not
  • - Inside of it it still runs the air
  • - Conditioning every once in a while just
  • - To keep the car cool
  • - Same goes with the heat and it's smart
  • - Enough to know when the battery's low to
  • - Quit doing that so the sink is super
  • - Smart there are so many other cool
  • - Things with this Tesla that I could go
  • - All dug de Muro on but instead I'm just
  • - Gonna show you my favorite part and
  • - That's charging it it comes with your
  • - Own personal magic wand and how could
  • - You not be Harry Potter with this thing
  • - Isla mantas gala mantas Badou Vyas oh
  • - Yes that's so cool outfit it release you
  • - Out release release oh it's locked
  • - And then you see if it comes the sword
  • - And the stone when you want to take it
  • - Out it won't let you so kids can't walk
  • - By and just unplug your Tesla and be
  • - Jerks alright unlock there we go really
  • - Seus Tesla Corps Dias but as cutting
  • - Edge as this Tesla was in 2012 it's
  • - Amazing how quickly luxury rivals have
  • - Caught up with their own version of
  • - Giant techie screens and this main
  • - Instrument screen really is copied and
  • - Has been improved upon without E and so
  • - Many others but this one is pretty
  • - Glitchy I've had it brick on me multiple
  • - Times even once while driving the screen
  • - Has gone black and then the teslic
  • - Screen comes up and the thing can
  • - Totally reboots it just totally reboots
  • - The car drives just fine but it's a
  • - Little scary when all this stuff goes
  • - Black on the inside now I could probably
  • - Fix this by updating the software and
  • - Getting it out of the old 3G into like
  • - 4G or LTE there's a software update
  • - Available that I could pay for but that
  • - Hasn't been done yet on this car it
  • - Probably explains why the sinner is a
  • - Little slow and glitchy as well I mean
  • - Minor annoyance it's hard to call it
  • - Hate but it is yeah it's a little I hate
  • - It when it happens I don't hate the
  • - Technology
  • - Now I totally love love the way this
  • - Tesla drives it's so easy you almost
  • - Don't have to think and the ride is
  • - Ridiculously smooth this thing has the
  • - Optional air ride suspension and it
  • - Gives it an s-class quality of ride it's
  • - Just so good so good but at the same
  • - Time it handles really well that's
  • - Because the low center of gravity the
  • - Battery pack everything's all load to
  • - The ground to where this thing actually
  • - Handles it's weird but of course being a
  • - Battery powered car the acceleration
  • - Accelerations also instant as well it's
  • - Not like a normal car where you have to
  • - Wait for a turbo to spool up or a town
  • - Shift just immediate power the moment
  • - You hit the pedal it's so impressive and
  • - It's a little different one other thing
  • - That's different about this car is
  • - Breaking you really don't have to hit
  • - The brakes
  • - Currently ever because of this
  • - Regenerative braking system when you let
  • - Off the gas and you Coast
  • - It's already engaging the regenerative
  • - Braking and slung in the car down so if
  • - You get to know this you can kind of
  • - Coast us up like I'm not touching the
  • - Pedals right now at all and we're almost
  • - Stopped we're down to a crawl I didn't
  • - Touch it it's kind of weird it takes a
  • - Little bit of getting used to
  • - And if you don't like it you can go in
  • - The settings and turn it off and then it
  • - Drives like a normal car but this works
  • - It's easy and it also helps keep your
  • - Battery life up because you're using the
  • - Regenerative braking add it to a peak
  • - It's fully charged us so I like it one
  • - More time Oh face now one thing that I
  • - Haven't gotten used to yet is the seat
  • - The seat is pretty uncomfortable for a
  • - Luxury car it's it's not good but this
  • - Is my gripe with a lot of luxury cars
  • - And a lot of other cars so that they
  • - Just they don't make them comfortable
  • - Anymore it feels like just rock-hard
  • - Just super super stiff and this one
  • - Isn't even bowls tree to make it sporty
  • - So it's just stiff and uncomfortable to
  • - Be stiff and uncomfortable
  • - [Applause]
  • - Okay so seats aside I love everything
  • - About the way this car drives an
  • - Electric cars tend to have the benefit
  • - Of being so simple there's way less
  • - Moving parts and we're related items to
  • - Deal with and it seems Tesla nailed it
  • - With their battery technology but time
  • - Will truly tell how well they actually
  • - Aged I love how everything seems pretty
  • - Easy to work on but I hate that Tesla
  • - Seems to define upon di wires and here's
  • - Probably my biggest gripe with Tesla and
  • - That's their unwillingness to help us
  • - Fix our own cars they won't sell us
  • - Parts they won't sell independent
  • - Mechanics parts nor will they share
  • - Their diagnostic software and service
  • - Manuals so we can actually figure out
  • - How to do this ourselves now I get that
  • - Tesla doesn't want to do the normal
  • - Franchise dealer model for their sales
  • - But their infrastructure isn't big
  • - Enough to not have independents fixing
  • - The cars for them and really if I do
  • - Have a serious problem I got nothing
  • - Here in Wichita the only Tesla service
  • - In Wichita is a single supercharger
  • - Station and into the spot a parking
  • - Stall in between a McDonald's and an
  • - Applebee's so like the most Kansas place
  • - In the world for a supercharger it's
  • - It's ridiculous but that's just for
  • - Charging for a real problem I'd have to
  • - Spend probably hundreds of dollars
  • - Shipping it up to Kansas City still none
  • - Of this worried me enough to stop me
  • - From buying one it's such a relaxing
  • - Easy car to drive but also manages to be
  • - Fun and interesting at the same time and
  • - That's really a rare combination now
  • - Here in Wichita Kansas people still
  • - Think the Tesla is a fancy-pants
  • - Spaceship from the future so I seem like
  • - A real high roller in this thing even
  • - Though it costs less than a new fully
  • - Loaded Honda Accord multiple people have
  • - Offered to buy this car from me as well
  • - But I'm definitely going to keep it
  • - Because I'm really do like it and I'm
  • - Curious how well it'll hold up and be
  • - Sure to hit that like button if you
  • - Think I'm disinvited from Elon Sparty's
  • - Now and I hope not I'd really want to
  • - See that Iron Man suit in the basement
  • - Really thank you for watching
  • - [Music]
