Answering Sean’s questions, Sandy walks viewers through some of the negatives and positives he discovered while tearing down the Model Y, but overall speaks very highly of the vehicle stating: “I never recommended the Model 3 to anybody, but I’ve already recommended the Model Y to a dozen people.” And later adds: “I haven’t recommended any electric car up until the Y.”
