    Model 3 Long Range RWD now available in the US [posted 07.12.2024]

    Yeah anyone know what the wait time is scheduled to be? I’m sure they are making a ton of these as we speak since demand will be highest for Rwd lr variant

    More Price Cut(s)?

    Too bad the majority of Texans hate Tesla and electric vehicles. When I was there in march they had YouTube commenting disabled on the Tesla most American made ad for the y made in Austin. I can’t understand the electric hare for the life of me. If you don’t like the cars don’t buy them. But...

    Luckily I don’t really need a car til around thanksgiving, but I’m fully prepared to wait longer if need be. What kind of discounts was the x seeing last fall from msrp?

    "Average" wh/mile for Vintage S?

    I had p90d with 21’s. It got terrible 360 wh/mi and depending on the variant - I’d classify that as a sports car

    "Average" wh/mile for Vintage S?

    What’s the point of having a fun and fast sports car if you are going to obsess about this metric? The S is an energy guzzler compared to the new 3. It’s still an awesome car meant to be enjoyed not staring at the wh/mi. Most people that have good wh/mi on this car have 19 wheels and drive like...

    More Price Cut(s)?

    At what price would you buy a new x before color options? They are currently 78,000 plus 1450 for the base (which is obscene). So basically 72,500 after tax credit and then pay a fortune in sales tax to the state.

    More Price Cut(s)?

    This is more common with Tesla than other cars. Take my case for example- I had a model s p90d where I thought at the time I was getting an ok deal. I bought for 66k where original owner paid 135k and only had 4300 miles. It turned out to be the worst car purchase of my life. In two years the S...

    Tesla delivered a nice jab / cross to any owner who just purchased a 3 Before yesterday. While things are amazing for new customers, it does leave a sickening feeling for those who just purchased weeks ago. Tesla is determined to move y/3 in numbers and doesn’t seem to care much about x/s. With...

    Tax credit 2024 [The tax credit discussion thread]

    Most dealers are completely confused about the used ev credit. They have made it almost a comedy show when hearing their reply about the rules or if they even think the vehicle is eligible. I’ve heard a different answer from every single dealer. Only hertz seems to have this down and you must...

    Model 3 Long Range RWD now available in the US [posted 07.12.2024]

    I need to check with Tesla on this because I might want to do a used ev credit 4k and the 7500. It would make sense that you may not have to provide eligibility because they are applying the 7500 to leases without any eligibility
  11. tesluv108

    Model 3 Long Range RWD now available in the US [posted 07.12.2024]

    Yes it matters. I’m of the understanding you have to prove eligibility which means you are on pace to pay in 2024 federal taxes of $7500 plus

    Model 3 Long Range RWD now available in the US [posted 07.12.2024]

    Same boat here. Thoroughly regret buying the 2023 3 rwd even though it’s the lfp battery. It already got hammered on depreciation even with the tax credit. Plus hertz is selling off 23’s at about 25k. Paid 31k roughly excluding delivery, but the new rwd range is 360 vs 270 and that’s just...

    Take what they say with a grain of salt regarding when they say to come. It makes no sense that a walk in can take delivery without an appointment by just talking to a sales advisor in person. They have the ability to move things around.

    More Price Cut(s)?

    I’ve purchased 3 different teslas direct through them. They were all of the easiest purchases of a vehicle in my life. The first was cash, but the other two I just literally bought on a whim and applied for financing an hour before driving away in the car. Comparing this to other dealers who try...

    More Price Cut(s)?

    I saw a recent YouTube video that model x inventory is spiking. So my thought is that Tesla will do some type of incentive either 10% discount from MSRP or a next to zero interest-rate. Here in Ohio I had an inventory x that was discounted by about $2000 for the end of quarter maybe 25 miles on...

    Warranty voided

    Does anyone know how Tesla treats a manufacturer buyback? For example, I’ve seen a car dealer in New Jersey that frequently deals in vehicles that are manufacturer buybacks. This dealer claims that this does not affect the original factory warranty in any way shape or form that it is still...

    They might do 0.99% financing if they need a sales boost on x. I would definitely buy

    The "End of Quarter" Waiting Room / Buying Guide

    I went today and looked at the 2024 x awd which is 70k after tax credit. Before I went I looked at a 2017 75d. What a difference and yeah the 75d wasn’t nearly as nice but was 30k. I had not sat in a 2024 with the mechanical rotating screen. Man the x is a special car and I want it bad

    The "End of Quarter" Waiting Room / Buying Guide

    Upon further review this “deal” is laughable. Apparently in Ohio disclosure laws require a statement from Tesla that this car has been repaired. Only 2k off? Lol

    The "End of Quarter" Waiting Room / Buying Guide

    Has anyone made the assumption that inventory hasn’t bounced back because they are retooling the production lines for the improved model y? They are selling off what they have but are focused on the transition? Elon said no to 2025 so now I think yes to 2024. Especially by November at latest in...

    Why are the batteries failing at 16k ? Not a good look

    I’m again I wouldn’t buy the current y I think it’s ugly (only in the face) the new refresh will have better everything.

    battery life

    You are an outlier. For ever person that tells me they are on their original battery 2 people say they have had a warranty one. Especially for that year

    battery life

    Yeah but this dude on this thread claims 10% is way too high for in warranty packs . I say it might be low. This is a closely guarded trade secret by Tesla OBVIOUSLY they aren’t gonna announce this or talk about it. I’ll stick to my 10% or higher of Tesla cars in warranty have their battery...

    lol ewon went into self preservation mode. If he gets pissed he will do the exact opposite the media says. So he’s been reading this thread and he says no discount for you. Gotta fund x misinformation

    battery life

    But I used to have a low mileage s I was horrified of failing. For every low milleage failure there seems to be a dude at 170k on the og battery. One thing that hasn’t been solved is total life of the battery. At what year mark regardless of cycles does the battery just spiral? 9? 10? 11? 12?

    Can you imagine buying a 3 lr awd last week and then this week Tesla offering the tax credit. I have a feeling big discounts are coming on the current y which I do not want.

    battery life

    I have an answer for you and you probably won’t like it. Most batteries will survive 10-15 years before replacement. However some will fail within 3 years and even sooner. Tesla has not shared the failure rate because ? Well because they don’t want to share all of their data apparently. I’ve...

    Discussion : All discussion regarding Model 3 and Tax credit in model 3 subforum

    Surprised more people aren’t taking about the highland long range awd is now eligible for 7500 tax credit. This makes a grey one 40,000 plus delivery and order fee. Not a bad deal

    Expired P85d model s- 17750 [Expired]

    Surprised you haven’t sold this? What is exact mileage? You are competing against newer 3s for 20k but this is a superior car. Probably the biggest difference to people is having a battery warranty vs not

    Any word on 0.99% coming back? I doubt they will leave things unchanged starting tomorrow. Especially since this design is nearing the end of its life for the y

    The "End of Quarter" Waiting Room / Buying Guide

    Ok so no deals to report in my area (Ohio). There aren’t any inventory y’s at all right now. Maybe they are waiting to release them starting 6/17
  36. tesluv108

    Order before March 1 or wait until end of Q1

    It doesn’t matter for a lot of people. The current Y is about as stale as they come. The new 3 applied to the y would be pure fire.
  37. tesluv108

    Order before March 1 or wait until end of Q1

    Seeing $500 discounts in my area. Hard to believe that’s it considering 0.99% is gone.
  38. tesluv108

    Did you just buy a Tesla from Hertz Car Rental?

    Im still seeing some under 25k. There are much less now and it seems they are higher priced for higher mileage than before. This is a pretty good deal

    MY 2024/2025 Refresh - Project Juniper?

    Just wondering who is buying at these prices? I bought a 2023 3 at 31,700 after tax credit. I just can’t believe there are enough people buying and taking loans on this car. I really think this car is overpriced. It’s probably a high 30k car for the performance. Sorry the truth will set you...

    Order before March 1 or wait until end of Q1

    lol they are trying to spark demand so they end 0.9% and no discounts? Good luck with that strategy.

    MY 2024/2025 Refresh - Project Juniper?

    The new 3 performance is awesome looking. The new seats are great. I also have a current 3 pre refresh and I don’t really want 2 identical looking cars. Therefore I am really hoping the new y is a larger 3 performance and then I will buy

    Regardless of what the chart says until CEO’s have to attest to these numbers or go to jail there is definitely no true number out there.

    Interesting article about inventory surplus. Personally I think the cars are too expensive and even 0.9% will not move the needle enough. https://insideevs.com/news/720018/thousands-unsold-tesla-evs-parking-lots/amp/

    They need to do this for the new 2024’s in inventory and they will definitely sell.

    So why doesn’t Tesla give 5k off for cash buyers? Yeah I know you can keep the money in bank yada yada yada

    Order before March 1 or wait until end of Q1

    I hate to be the semantics guy but it’s 0.9% not zero. Either way it saves a lot if you are financing over an extended period

    So far as of today 5/9 I’ve seen zero inventory discounts (except demos with miles) after Elon’s new found brilliance. I’m thinking in 3 weeks this will change. But I’m also wondering if they will bring back the color promo. If so they should actually program their site to actually show you the...

    Model 3 Highland (US) Waiting room

    So I had it on and it had a wide open right lane. Instead of the car doing the rational thing it freaked out because the right lane was ending in 1000 feet. It promptly slowed down and got directly behind a car who then braked hard. I had to stand on the brakes as it didn’t realize a car was...

    Supercharger - Cincinnati, OH (Marburg Ave.)

    The ones farthest from the store are the newest ones. That site used to be 10 I believe and they added another 12 later after closing blue ash to the public. Imo mason or Lebanon are in dire need of a supercharger.
