Sandy VS Frunk on Tesla M3

2021 Tesla Model 3: E3 – Sandy Learns How to Close Frunk / Ride & Drive

In episode 3 of Munro’s analysis of the new Tesla Model 3, Sandy examines the “Frunk” as well as gives some preliminary perspective on the ride and drive experience.

So… you have the frunk vs. Sandy for a good couple of minutes without any satisfactory resolution.  This is one aspect of the Tesla 3 that Sandy absolutely hates.  It doesn’t lock closed consistently and this is purely an engineering flaw and not a manufacturing error, which are the kinds of failures that Sandy absolutely detests the most.  Problems like this shouldn’t exist because they should be eliminated in the design or redesign phase.  Although having the frunk is a great idea and use of space, not having a consistently locking cover is not only annoying but will maybe also lead to some weather damaging the items you place in that compartment.

Moving on though, once Sandy begins to drive the car, he is happy with the experience.  Even on a usually rough road, such as the industrial road that Munro & Associates is located on, the car gives a very comfortable experience.  Sandy goes on to remark about wind noise and the upgrade in the windows.  Sandy goes on to remark the smoothness of acceleration and the overall feel that reminds him of a racecar/luxury car.

At the end we get a little story about Mercury cars, but you will have to watch to find out.  Click below to watch:
