    Can I pickup in NJ and register in FL without any issues?

    I’ve seen quite a few posts regarding registering a car in a state other than your primary residence state. It’s my belief that after spending so much for the car, you should register the car in your state of residence even if it costs you a few more bucks. To do otherwise is tax fraud, and even...

    Can I pickup in NJ and register in FL without any issues?

    To register in a state I believe you have to prove residency in that state.

    So Tesla sold me a New Inventory car but didn't disclose that it had had a prior accident

    True, but in the cases above the purchasers were told they were getting brand new vehicles. So do we now have to prepare a letter/affidavit for a Tesla rep to sign prior to payment saying the car is brand new and has never been in an accident? Thankfully this issue is rare, but it sure is a...

    So Tesla sold me a New Inventory car but didn't disclose that it had had a prior accident

    A Carfax report states when and where a vehicle was sold, and when the accident was reported. Is there any history of a previous sale? If not, I am trying to imagine how an accident was reported. If the car/s were always in the possession of Tesla prior to the sale to the OP and ymeee, Tesla...

    So Tesla sold me a New Inventory car but didn't disclose that it had had a prior accident

    How upsetting to find that out in that way. Just curious, how many miles were on the car when you took possession? Unless your husband ordered a new car and had to wait some months to get it, he may have gotten a “new” one out of inventory. Personally, I would not buy a new car out of inventory...

    New 2022 Model S missing parts

    I assume you know by now that Tesla no longer supplies a mobile charger unless you pay for it. Bummer!

    Model S delivery date bumped significantly!!!

    Yep, my October order for a Model S LR, red over cream w/19” wheels now has an EDD of TBD.

    Just Ordered LR

    I ordered the 19” wheels (smoother riding, longer lasting and all season/terrain), so maybe? Did you order FSD?

    Just Ordered LR

    I placed my order for a Model S, red on cream, on October 4th and my EDD is TBD. I assume Tesla is prioritizing orders of those ordering Plaids first, then those ordering Model S w/FSD. As I’m not getting FSD I’m guessing my order is lower in priority.

    PM3 to Model S LR or Plaid?

    I say if you’ve got the itch, then scratch it. For me, the standard S has more than enough power, so I’ve got one on order and will trade in my Model 3. Like you, I prefer the exterior and interior look. However, I also have a reservation on a Lucid Air Grand Touring - so if I decide to buy that...

    Financing Problem from Tesla

    I've never financed a car, but from what you are saying, is there a monthly finance charge on top of the principal and interest costs? If it's like most loans, all Wells Fargo is saying is that if your regular payment is, say, on March 1st and you prepay the loan on March 17th, then you would...

    Finally picking up my plaid Monday…

    Teaser photo is great. Looking forward to seeing more once the job is completed. Would you share with us what the cost was?

    Any advice how NOT to get scammed with a private buyer?

    Do not trust cashier’s or certified checks, and wait until the funds are in your account before transferring the car.
