Tesla Model 3 2019
Great exercise. It was a birthday present to myself as I have a Model Y on pre-order so I wanted to experience the Model 3 which is as close as I can get right now. This car confirmed my desire for the Model Y. It is a great car, handling, performance, luxury, build quality. The regenerative braking option is wonderful for country roads allowing very controlled and smooth slowing for bends. It is worth getting over the first experience of oddity. The Autopilot came up to and beyond my expectations. Flawless on the freeway and very useful in traffic on surface streets. Because of all the bells and whistles the car takes some getting used to if you want to use all the stuff. TJ was responsive and my trip went flawlessly. Thanks for sharing this great car.

Thanks Bon for the rental and understanding showing up a little late to return. (Had thought it was due at 3pm, but checking back on the app showed 2pm. I was so busy trying to load up the car (baby shower) and get back on the road that I didn't notice I had missed a Turo msg from Bon that morning.) Otherwise, the car functioned as expected and had some cool features like overhead cam, or warning triggers if you get to close to something and such.. Was a pleasant experience, and would use again.
