Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
I purchased a Model S P85D in June 2015 and have just over 10,000 miles on the car. If you want performance this is the car for you! Zero to 60mph in 3.2 second. 671 hp. Instant full torque when stepping on the accelerator. The drive battery weighs 1200 lbs and is basically the entire floor so center of gravity is very low. It corners like it is on rails. I also own a Lexus LS460 and the Tesla is not up to the quality of the interior or to the plush ride of the Lexus. Charging is no problem.
I bought this car used a few months ago. I like this car because of the great gas mileage. Every tank I have exceeded the rated mileage for this car. This used car has been very dependable (no issues in yet). This car has most all the features you would find in a 2016 version.
The C-Max Energi is very comfortable and very quiet. I love the plug in ability, I drive mostly around town so I average 75 miles a gallon. This is because I have a very short commute and usually go under 20 miles a day so I can go the whole day on electric. If it was only a Hybrid and only got 40 miles per gallon I would still love the car. It seems like a luxury car that gets very good fuel mileage. The car has a lot of windows and that is great except it heats up really fast in the sun.
2015 Prius is awesome in terms of mileage, driving 17 miles one way to work, mostly highway miles and have reached 52.3 MPG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing below 51 MPG yet. Plenty of leg room for our family of 5, and I can even sit in the back at 6'1" and still have plenty of leg room also. Ride is surprisingly smooth and steering is very well controlled, never thought that would be the case
The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE feels luxurious. It also has surprising pick-up. It doesn't hurt that it gets 40 miles, or more, to the gallon of gas. The second best Hybrid that I found (but did not buy) is the Volkswagen Turbo DIESEL Hybrid Jetta.
Love my Volt, just wish it had a bit more range. 60+ would be ideal.
Performed routine maintenance at scheduled intervals!
