Wife wants a Tesla, doesn’t care if it is model 3 or y, but I am so uninterested in one and feel like the build quality is not there.
I am trying to push a BMW i4 instead, but to make it more appealing I feel like I have to finance it to get the $7,500 federal rebate make the prices more equal. However I am hesitant to finance a new model bMW with questionable reliabIlity. I usually lease my vehicles to avoid any warranty or maintenance issues.
With the battery recall, should I just swallow it and get a Tesla? I can’t even get a price for a lease right now for the i4 edrive40…
Just two cars. We have an X3 and a 330i, but the 330i is coming up on lease end in March. I have decent offer from Autonation to buy the 330, but if I were to order an i4 would just hold off until it is delivered. We do have one kid in a car seat, so car has to be reasonable to put a car seat in the back
Polestar is nice… and I think you can get it in 3-4 months. It’s a little tight in the back though, especially when there are tall drivers. Looked tighter than a 3-series to me, but you never know until you try out that car seat in the back
In that case you should get what you like for your car and your wife should get what she wants for hers.
That seems like a general solution to me.
Also, specifically, if this is your first EV you’re probably going to use it way more than you anticipated. Like regardless of the price, you’d rather avoid gas stations. And take EV trips beyond its range. So a good charging network will become more important than you’re probably thinking rn
