With my experience and owning Tesla and Bolt.If you are familiar with an EV and have already gone through the "wow" phase, then yes, it is just a car. I experienced the same when we traded our 2019 Leaf for a 2020 Model 3. I thought the Leaf was amazing when we got it. I loved the EV change so much I bought a Bolt. We then decided to test drive a Model 3. While I thought it was great, and I liked it more than the Leaf, It wasn't earth shattering. My goalposts had been moved by the Leaf and Bolt, and the Model 3 was just a nice car.
My 2020 Model 3 that I took delivery of in March of 2020 was almost perfect. The only things I could nitpick is the driver's door was a little "out" and not quite flush with the rear passenger door. I loosened the latch/strike plate/whatever you call it and bumped it in a few millimeters. All good now. And the left rear passenger's door handle is a little recessed compared to the others. Not enough for me to worry about or complain. The paint is great although not as smooth as the Bolt when you look at something reflected in it. No panel gaps or misalignment other than what I mentioned previously. No squeaks, rattles, or noise. After almost a year I've had no issues. I can't say that for my 2019 Bolt, I had the rear axle replaced and now the battery issue. And that's not a dig at the Bolt, it is just a fact.
If you live near a Tesla Service Center, that makes the decision a little easier. Especially if you're in an area where the service centers aren't swamped. If not, think things over a little more vs. something else. I haven't had to use Tesla service, but if I do it is as close as the Chevy dealer.
Another thing to consider is Tesla's warranty is 4 yr/50k mi and the Bolt is 3 yr/36k mi. Battery warranties are both 8 yr but the Tesla drive unit is 120k vs. the Bolt's 100k.
So with Tesla you are taking a bit of a gamble, especially if you buy one during their ramp up of production. Hopefully they have things ironed out for the Y after almost a year. But a gamble is the case with any new car model, new manufacturer, or new technology. Whether you buy a Bolt, Leaf, Tesla, or anything else, we're all early adopters and guinea pigs at this stage. You've just got to be prepared for that. That's why I'm being patient with the battery issues and my Bolt. I knew stuff like this was possible when I made the jump to two EVs. Gonna stick with it and see where things go. I'm not going back to ICE though, that's for sure.
In hindsight if I were to do it all over again, I'd probably end up with a Tesla and Bolt just like now. Depends on what happens with the Bolt's battery. And maybe a Model Y instead of a Model 3. I'd just skip the Leaf. It wasn't a bad car, but just not the right car for me.
Bolt is a keeper even after warranty expired it is dirty cheap vs Tesla. Tesla is good for as long warranty is there. Parts are much cheaper and easy to get.... GM has more service locations. If you are experienced mechanic you can buy scanner straight from GM for troubleshooting vs Tesla that they think no other shops or mechanics are qualified to work on Tesla. Tesla will become like German made car's once warranty is over. High cost maintenance.
I'm not against Tesla but this is truth that is going to sting hard your wallet once they become owners full responsibility for all repairs.
