How Reliable Is a 2020 Tesla Model Y After a Year? Long-Term 2020 Tesla Model Y Review

Edmunds took ownership of a 2020 Tesla Model Y Performance last year as part of our long-term test program. Now, one year later, Carlos Lago shares the team's experience after approximately 9,000 miles of use.

What was it like to drive the Model Y for a year? How reliable was it? What kind of maintenance was needed and what issues popped up? What was the range on our Model Y? Is the Model Y one of the best small SUVs on the market? We answer these questions and more. We also detail the highs and lows of owning and driving the 2020 Tesla Model Y Performance.

    Test drove both and put in an order for the Y. There was really no comparison when we drove them. Plus the Ford dealer didn't know anything about their own car and didn't even let us drive it on the highway. Really felt like they're not at all serious about EVs yet.

    @AB I hear you and I appreciate your opinion. But most people can't find a Mach E compatible charger as easily, especially in the Midwest and 2nd tier cities. Simple numbers tell you there are 14,000 MachE fast chargers vs 25000 for Tesla. We won't even talk about other brands. And while reports of the Ford charging half as fast are overhyped, Tesla has had a long time to optimize those charging bugs so it's seamless most of the time by far. Don't get me wrong I think the MACH E definitely looks better outside and rides better. But the inside quality, charging network, dealer, and panache' all definitely go towards Tesla.

  • AB


    Månad sedan

    @Maurice Henson Yes, but any car can find a fast charging network in any city. I can drive my Mach E from city to city anywhere in Texas without a problem. My mach E charges in 38 minutes on a fast charger. It's not that big of a deal when leaving the car to go eat or do whatever we wanted to do in another city.

    @AB yes but they do buy them to drive 2-4 hours away which in many cities is within city limits (round trip) do the math. Or a day trip. Without a fast charging infrastructure those are the trips that are a burden with an electric car. Because you will need to have the car stationary for 2 or more hours charging.

    32K miles on my Model Y and I haven't had nearly any of the issues outlined in this video... Sorry to hear that. I'm a big Tesla fan, but also honest. I'm not afraid to admit I have some panel gaps, AP has randomly hit the brakes, the display has frozen a time or two... the usual. Even so, this has honestly been the best car I've ever owned! The overall day to day experience is unlike anything else and I cant see myself buying another brand for a very long time. I have a CyberTruck reservation, so I'm looking forward to a review of that! Also: at 12:12, you mention you have to pull over for the restart. Not sure exactly what you mean here, as you can perform the display restart while driving. I tested this myself, even Autopilot works fine while its restarting!

    I've had my Model Y for more than a year and still love it. If you wanted a family crossover you should have gotten the cheaper regular long-range dual-motor version with more compliant 19" wheels-it's still crazy fast, but apparently you wanted a drag racer (so acknowledge that's why you bought that version, not as a daily driver). Also, I've never even tried my standard Autopilot because I like to drive (and don't do long trips)-and have no complaints about my own driving.

  • Tyler Graham

    So I admittedly have never had his issues with my Model 3. But most of these "issues" are pretty well known before you buy, you get the Performance wheels for the looks not the ride. You can't call it a "Family" car when you paid to soup it up. I got the Dual Motor because the look of more expensive wheels wasn't worth it to me. I did pay the 3K for self driving because that will be. Also treating anything about FSD as promises seems disingenuous to me or worrying about other drivers using a feature improperly seems irrelevant. I think the screen blackout has happened to me once total but perhaps dozens of novice drivers makes that happen more often.

    Wow did you nail this review. I had the 2021 version of your car on order but decided to bail for how bad it rode with those massive wheels and crappy suspension. I can't think of another SUV/CUV in its class that rides as badly as it does. Thankfully the long range AWD has pretty good performance and rides much better. Still far away from class leading but not going to crush your kidneys on most roads. One thing you should have called out is how Tesla sort of plays fast and loose with performance times. They quote without rollout times for the performance version, which makes the difference look bigger than it really is, compared to the long range version. I am normally biased toward the higher performance versions of vehicles and this might be the first time I go down spec to get the better vehicle overall. They really need to do something about the suspension, put actually lightweight wheels and tires more appropriate for a performance version. So if you buy one of these, plan on better wheels/tires and coilovers so at least another 6-7k and hope you can sell your stock wheels and tires to someone who has no clue about them. I couldn't believe how much curb rash the Model Y performance had at the Tesla store with just 200 miles on it. Magnet is not the appropriate term. It is more like the gravitation attraction of a black hole that sucks any curb to contact the wheel withing a 5 city block radius. Shame on Tesla for putting such crap on an otherwise great car. These don't help the range either. I'd love to go for the MachE but the supercharger network is the one ace in the hole that Tesla has that nobody comes close to matching yet. At least the MachE seems to be its estimates. Give the MachE another year and Tesla will have a very serious competitor on their hands once Ford gets it more dialed in. Ford also hasn't raised its prices like the 4 times Tesla has done in just a few months this year. Maybe it was more but I gave up tracking it.

    Teslas are built at least as well as the 1970 Ford Pinto. Make sure you get the car wrapped before the paint falls off. And throw up some caulk around the rear window, which has been known to leak. Screen problems? We don't need no steeenkeeeeng screens, mang. Tesla's computer geeks might be first class, but they don't road test the cars much. They'd rather let their early adopters be the beta-testers. If Elon died tomorrow, Tesla would wither away. I give them credit for motivating the Germans, Koreans, and Swedes to build better EV's, though.

    You can restart the screen while you drive. It only takes about a minute for it to come back on. You're not constantly touching your screen and adjusting controls while you drive. Waiting a minute to adjust a control may be inconvenient but not a big of a deal as the video is making it considering most people are paying more attention to the drive vs constantly needing to make adjustments using the screen while driving.

    Were you doing the hard reboot (with the brake pedal) because a soft reboot hadn't worked? I've had mine going on two years and the screen's only needed to be rebooted twice. In both cases a soft reboot (just the buttons, no brake) did the trick.

    Agree with Carlos Lago's analysis of the Y Performance 100%,the FSD needs lots of integration and updating,the ride is extremely harsh and uncomfortable,no screen outages on mine,7800 miles and its a '21 model,those wheels are beautiful but extremely easy to damage due to the fact that the wheel rims are flush with the outer edge of the tire walls,both passenger side wheels have curb rashes and me too use a black marker to minimize visible damage.

    Model 3 owner here for the last 17 months. Video was spot on. But, I do love the car. Also bought full self-driving. I would completely recommend AGAINST buying it at almost any price. I wouldn't opt in for that again. Feel like I have been duped by Tesla. I'm actually surprised there hasn't been a class action lawsuit against full self driving. Tesla promises made, Tesla promises broken time and time again. I would finally say that the service network is not robust enough for the number of cars sold so far. Depending upon where you live, you could wait quite a while for service. I'm talking 3 weeks minimum in my case.

    Virtually everyone who owns their Model Y loves them, which is why they have such high owner satisfaction. I agree that you should put on smaller wheels on the Performance, or just go with the normal Long Range AWD which is still very quick. Bottom line, in terms of performance, tech and superior charging...the Model Y is the way to go.

    I enjoy my long range Y very much. Since I consider it a driver's car--performance and handling--I'm not interested at all in self driving as I want to do it myself (note: retired w/no commute). I did change the wheels (narrower by 1/2") and tires (wider/275) for looks, a bit of extra height, and rim protection. The stiff ride is fine, but less tire/impact/road noise would be better. And I too have a Cybertruck deposit waiting for fruition.

But there is no way that I have to pull off the road to reboot my screen. This very dangerous. What is Tesla doing about it. Is this prevalent? Or is this just your car? I need answers. Please reply.

    For the infrequent times you need max range, like just before starting a road trip, you absolutely can charge to 100%. I do. So your “real range” is not reduced by 10% because most of the time you charge to 90% or less. Normal daily driving, even with lots of trips around town or to nearby towns, only uses 20-40% of the battery, so 90% is more than enough. However, It is correct that range at highway speeds is less than Tesla’s official EPA number. You have to drive about 55 mph to hit that rated range number.

    I would love to see you replace the wheels and tires with a high profile set, your car would likely feel like a new vehicle. We have the Model 3 SR with about 10,000 miles on it. I stayed with the higher profile tires for all of the reason you outlined, I have also had more flats with the low profile tires due to pot holes and curb/debris along the road. The standard autopilot seems to work pretty well, but I have experience the odd slow downs that seem to occur at the same place on many drives too and from work, and my screen has needed to be reset twice. Not because it went dark, but because the audio stopped playing on the media system. Overall it has be a very efficient, quiet and comfortable car and I have been pleased with it. My real life range is more like 200 miles, of which I only use about 175 between charges.

    Great review, but wow, our Model 3 hasn’t had NEARLY the issues you guys saw, coming up on 45k miles and 3 years now. Early software a bit buggy first 6mo in 2018. Dash rattle and defroster wires burned out when new, but only in-service fault was the Park button stopped working a few weeks back; easy 20min mobile repair next day to replace steering wheel electronics module. (It was still drivable thankfully). But: autopilot is crap (I only got the super basic one when it was $2k for a one-week special, never would have done it otherwise). I don’t see how a “real” driver could be comfortable with its jerky reactions. We got the 18” eco wheels for ride quality and they are curb MAGNETS. Never curbed so many wheels so fast in my life. My current theory is the center screen makes you think you’re parking straight when you’re not?

    What happens when most of the vehicles on the road are electric, and are also fully controllable by law enforcement, are hackable, are restricted from accessing certain roads, and can be disabled when the “grid” goes down?

    Tesla are literally crap boxes, if any other brand pulled this shit people would be up in arms.

    The concept of an electrical car should be economy and reliability , but for what I see here this is a project which so far seems to have many issues and very expensive, let’s not forget that. Gasoline cars can be bought second hand for as low as 2000 and you can go a lot of miles ,and repair them , is not luxury is for a practical purpose. Going from point A to point B Tesla is far away from being like that , thanks .

    @Moto_Arte_Cafe_LA there are many things we want ! But something people do not want is to pay an arm and leg, I’d like transportation to be less costly and more practical yes

    @Dan Grassetti not true what ? My point is not your particular case , my point is the variables which exists, and pose as issues to be resolved as of yet!

    not true. My Model 3 has been 100% reliable and by far the least expensive car to operate that I've ever owned.

    So you bought the large wheels on the Y that are easier to damage and then complain when you damage them. No complaints with the Vette's easy to damage wheels because you were careful with the Vette. Ok. And you buy the Performance Y with stiffer suspension and complain about the ride. Seems fair. And you buy FSD which you know is under development and complain that it isn't developed. Yep, perfectly reasonable. And you buy the burger with extra cheese and then complain there's too much cheese. Oh wait, that didn't happen. Sorry.

    Almost everything is 100% true. Autopilot is great, but only in highways and doesn't worth near 10 grands.Ride quality - oh my I'm happy I'm still young enough and do not have back issues yet. I own model S and it was extremely hard to damage rims. My 2020 Model Y rims are destroyed after 1 year. I recently bought a 2021 Model Y and was very careful, but less than a month later I caught my first curb 😭no 360 view in Tesla in 2021( But I love it anyway.

    No need to pull over. Just hold in your thumbs to reboot. If you need to do it frequently please open a support ticket in your app.

    To be clear this is just the display computer, the car is still fully functional to be driven manually during the reboot process, autopilot can keep driving as well but use extra caution since you don’t have visual alerts and only minimal audio alerts and feedback until after the reboot completes. In 2.5 years with the model 3 I manually rebooted probably 5 times across the ~50 software versions during that time. No manual reboots that I can recall in 2021, this was all further back.

    You don't need to pull over to reset the screen. Actually, pressing the brake does nothing. While you are still driving, you just press and hold the scroll wheels. You don't even need to pull over. If you can work the accelerator, brake, steering can continue driving normally while resetting the screen.

    @Robert Tucker Also, apparently users have reported a longer restart time even on MCU2 cars when pressing the brake. They've also been told to do so by Tesla techs. I haven't independently verified this, but now I'm deeply curious if it's true haha. That said, you're absolutely right, it isn't in the manual.

    @Robert Tucker That's fair, and no rudeness taken. I didn't realize this had changed. I have one MCU1 and one MCU2 Model X. The MCU1 car does have different reboot behavior based on brake/no brake. All MCU2 cars have as you say, the brake pedal makes no difference. I learned a thing, thank you :).

    @Jonathan Sage not to be rude, but check your manual. That is not in there. Holding the brake while pressing the scroll wheels was something the community made up. It is no where in the manual, nor has Tesla ever stated to do this. Several service techs have said that the brake does not do anything.

    Pressing and holding the brake while restarting does a hard restart of all systems. It is not the same. Check your manual.

    Very honest review , some things I agree with but I will say Tesla has improved the build quality of the 2021 Model Y’s considerably. Do compare if you guys have the chance!

    All Model Ys and 3s ride pretty stiff. Granted the Performance models ride the worst…even a LR version on 19s don’t ride as well as other comparable vehicles. I’m selling my Model Y Performance for a Model S cause those have air suspension apparently.

    The s and x have very smooth suspension. Make sure you buy a post Raven update model though. They made massive improvements to the suspension in that hardware update.

    Well you do have an early Model Y which was known for even worse build quality than the usual consistent Tesla build quality, but give that, these are crappy issues; rattles, unaligned panels, seats, interior falling apart, ha love that the foglight literally fell off into the bumper, loose bolt recalls, etc. We had similar on our S and X thus we have written off Tesla going forward. It is hard as they were such fun to drive and high tech cars which made you love them, but we have NEVER had a car (either) in the shop so much being repaired or recalled for pretty big things or maintenance items. They say EVs are low/no maintenance, but not Teslas. They are poorly built, lower quality, and I like to use the word "delicate."
