When I buy a car reliability is important, but it's not the ultimate thing I look for. For plenty of people they just want a boring SUV box to take them around from point A to B, reliability is probably one of the top things they look for. I care more about drive train (Performance, layout, and more), interior quality, vehicle build quality, and the technology. The i3 checks almost all of those boxes. About the only thing that would make it better from a car standpoint (rather than a "I want more range, or I want Y technology" standpoint), would be a front motor, for an AWD setup. It wouldn't have to be a big motor, infact it could be a fairly small motor, more like the Prius' e-FOUR system then Tesla's performance oriented AWD system.
Now, there's lots of vehicles I like, including Tesla's offerings. Tesla hasn't exactly won any reliability awards. It seems like a lot of the popular cars are boring in a way, built for people who hate driving. That's fine, take your pick, there's lots of options.
