Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S is so revolutionary and advanced, it's like a car from another planet. That planet happens to be Silicon Valley, where this startup automaker has its headquarters and is run by the same CEO as Space X, the space exploration company with visions of flying to Mars. The Model S requires no excuses -- electric car or not.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"Acceleration is out of this world!!! I have driven super cars like Aston Martins and Ferraris before. First month after I bought the Tesla, I got rid of my super cars as I felt like an idiot in a super car when our 4-door family sedan (i.e., the Tesla) can easily outperform our aggressive looking fancy super car. The handling is also spectacular for a 4-door family sedan. The only car I have that out-handles this is a mid-engine Porsche. Our Aston Martin got destroyed in both handling and a..."

It’s hard to drive other performance vehicles after driving a P100D as you forget they can’t get you to any speed you want from any other speed effectively instantaneously and effortlessly. For a big heavy car, it handles extremely well with its ultra-low center of gravity centered perfectly in the vehicle.

"1) Adaptive Cruise Control makes heavy traffic much more manageable without the stress of trying to maintain following distance. I anticipate future improvements to read stoplights and stop signs and sense slowing traffic or congestion farther ahead. (I had to learn to smooth out the ride by lowering the speed before Cruise Control would abruptly brake.) 2) The switch to regenerative braking when foot is removed from accelerator is less abrupt than in our 2014 Model S."

What Owners Say

Since after the first 15K miles, the car has been making weird subtle yet annoying plastic-y creaking and clanking sounds when driven over even slightly bumpy terrain.
