    Used P100DL or new model Y performance

    i got a charger installed. Was going to buy my friends 2015 P90DL but then I thought it was just so dated. The price point on a 2018 performance is too high for me. I could swing a 2016 p100d but with the way tech is advancing so fast my plan is to keep waiting. If they unveil plaid I imagine...

    Used P100DL or new model Y performance

    Model Y will be around 10k less but they are in the same ballpark cost wise. Which would you go with and why.

    Does Buying a Tesla Make sense for me?

    You are not in a good financial situation to buy a model 3. Savings on gas is negated by high insurance. Pay off your current car and drive it without a payment for as long as possible. Save $ for home and your future Tesla. When you get max value from driving your current car then can get a...

    Given lackluster service would you still buy a Tesla?

    So as of now given the cost of getting my used model S p90dl and potential headaches with the car I am going to keep my daily ice vehicle (I also have an old 911 as a hobby car which I’ll never sell). Gonna consider a Ford Mustang EV. Legacy automaker, servicing and still has 7500 tax credit. If...

    Given lackluster service would you still buy a Tesla?

    I live in Connecticut. There is one service center as they can not sell in Connecticut but can service. Also I think they found a work around to lease cars

    Given lackluster service would you still buy a Tesla?

    Got a purchase brewing on a model S p90dl. My brother is telling me to absolutely not buy it as any issue with the car will take forever. I have read some horror stories... what say you?

    unique potential purchase situation-questions

    thank you so much for your timely feedback. What’s the process for the Tesla app when I purchase from him to get it over to me? Is there a process with Tesla to notify them of change of ownership?

    unique potential purchase situation-questions

    do you have to turn the wheel a certain way to see the battery sticker? So the car was a 2015 therefore I believe that means there is a warranty on battery and drivetrain for 3 more years My friend purchased from Tesla less than a year ago. As I’ve read his 4 year 50,000 mile warranty should...

    I’m leaning towards the S heavily. I think my plan will be to keep until warranty is up and trade to Tesla for a model Y

    unique potential purchase situation-questions

    It’s a 2015 pre facelift. It has ludicrous mode. I have to verify battery but it is at 255 miles on full charge. Around 41k miles. 21” wheels, power lift gate, sub zero, air, etc. it’s blue over grey. My friend and I came to an agreement... $52k for the car and I give him my old ICE car with...

    unique potential purchase situation-questions

    thanks for the info. I will definitely take this into consideration. I get my plug installed Tuesday, which is going to be quite a hassle, and make my decision from there. I am in no rush and can always go M3 or MY.

    unique potential purchase situation-questions

    I see your point however the car would have 3 years and 40k more miles of warranty. Also I am not well informed on the subject but is there not a unlimited mileage warrant of the drivetrain and battery or did I just pick that heresay up somewhere along the way? I would love a new Tesla but...

    unique potential purchase situation-questions

    Thanks for the feedback on price. I feel like autopilot 1 works well enough for the highway. I feel we are a long time off before fully autonomous vehicles that I would feel comfortable actually using and that doesn't even consider regulatory issues. Given the around 6% degradation how much...
