    My CPO buying experience timeline

    Just realized two things on my CPO 1) Except for the Temp tag and my insurance, I've got no other proof that the car is mine. I do have a MVPA that is signed by me and a tesla rep ... but the purchase was done by both me & my wife and we needed to fill out a new MVPA upon delivery. 2) No valve...

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    I was able to take delivery on my car yesterday afternoon - August 18th; just shy of 6 weeks. Except for a couple of nicks that you have to be looking for and a bit of wear on the drivers seat... the car looks fantastic. Might get some touch-up paint. 2 bonuses : Parcel Shelf & LTE :) I...

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    I agree 100% -- I would not have agreed until I was told what the specs were; knowing that it was, at the very least, a 60 due to its price level. I was shocked that it had more than what my current reservation was for - and at a cheaper price. That plus the assurance (not a guarantee, of...

    Blog Tesla Selling CPO Cars on Autotrader.com

    I am one of those that is getting an AutoTrader CPO Tesla (2013 60). I had an existing CPO reservation (also a 2013 60, but a little older) still outstanding (4+ weeks) and saw the post here regarding AT. Figured that I would give it a shot... and, after some initial confusion, am taking...

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    In an interesting twist/development --- my original CPO selection is now back up for sale (per the EV-CPO.com site)... not showing up on Tesla's search page. What's interesting is that, when I originally selected it ( 5 1/2 weeks ago), the location was in San Francisco; which was fine since it...

    HPWC : Charging at 40amps vs. 80amps

    Thanks all / I like the idea of the 42amp suggestion. My plan is to have it wired for 100ampa and available for 80amp charging

    Least stressful and fastest way to do road trips

    Since I live in Vegas and will probably be making several road trips in the near future <g>, can you let us know which ones to avoid and at what times (unless they are crowded 24/7)?

    HPWC : Charging at 40amps vs. 80amps

    Yeah -- my original CPO purchase didn't have DCs .. which I was fine with. This one, however, has everything else that I had wanted... plus the Duals (but standard suspension and 21s vs. 19s) -- for around $ 1,600 less

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    Car is in Vegas -- Scheduled delivery appointment is Friday afternoon. They had originally planned for Saturday, but my schedule wouldn't have allowed it. As of this afternoon, My Tesla has not been updated yet (since has both the old and new reservations), so I can't quite complete the...

    HPWC : Charging at 40amps vs. 80amps

    I am entering the home stretch of getting my CPO 60 (Friday)... which has dual chargers. I had been debating getting a HPWC ... and with the duals, I think that i going to go for it. One question, with it being a 60, I know that I don't need to take advantage of the full capability of the HPWC...

    Least stressful and fastest way to do road trips

    The Superchargers make it less stressful, but I (and probably others) can definitely understand keeping the stress level low. :) Best thing is to use sites like EV Trip Planner and A Better Routeplanner. I haven't used ABRP yet, but I understand that it can be used within the car browser so...

    I was able to switch my CPO deposit to one of the Autotrader Fremont vehicles. Still waiting, but supposedly, it is all ready to go... just need transport to Vegas and detailing.

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    It was basically Me: "If I did decide to select this car ... would I be able to move the deposit from the current CPO reservation or.." Her (CPO Advisor): "I can move the deposit for you to this car." or "I can make it happen" ... something along those lines. Since it was $ 1,600 less, I was...

    Automatic Climate Control vs Las Vegas

    Is that legal in LA (not judging, just wondering)? I had the legal tint for Vegas with my previous car and it was fine ... but I do wonder if getting limo for the sides and back wouldn't be a bad idea. What is your front tinted at?

    Buying CPO with accident history

    Since they need to go through the CPO inspection process, it may not be a bad thing to keep the purchase; especially with the CPO warranty in place ( I would assume that it is 2 years and 100K max miles). This would be a whole different story if you were buying it from a 3rd party/used car...

    Automatic Climate Control vs Las Vegas

    I think that the pano roof (when I had a Tesla that had that) was ok with sunny climates. The issue is that, while it does help with the amount of sun getting in... I felt that the window itself got warm which, in turn, warmed the interior air. I am waiting for a CPO that has a solid roof...

    A Better Routeplanner

    Regarding "Replan" ... lets say that the button comes up, but I decide to wait before selecting... 1) If my SoC gets back within the initial plan, does the button go away? 2) If I wait tot select Replan, is it based on my currently calibrated values or the values that were calculated when the...

    I probably wouldn't have either for that price :) I can neither confirm or deny that, when I got the emails from Hank this morning, that I didn't curse his name a bit. :) I mean -- at this point, I am probably secure in my current CPO reservation but still ... to see better options at the same...

    WOW! Is it ready for delivery to you ... or does it still need work done? Delivery in 2 weeks is awesome (and very envious to a lot of people) :)

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    Per the list of options on the EV-CPO site, that P85 does have satellite -- so that's a plus. I'm still waiting for a response ... but if the only option was to start again and forfeit the original deposit; I'll stick with my 60 CPO. I am just not financially able to lose $ 1K right now... and...

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    It's kind my feeling as well -- I emailed the local Delivery Specialist (DS) -- waiting to see what he can find. I would contact my SA as well; but it's Yolanda and she hasn't been that great with returning emails.

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    It's in New York (probably why I didn't jump on it; don't want to pay the additional transportation fee if I can help it) Since it's a 2012 with no pano roof; can it still get XM since it has the Sound Studio package?

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    If that P85 was the one for $ 35K, I saw that as well ... but it's gone. I almost jumped on it... and then worry about applying the first deposit over later. I am currently renting -- so having to go back to the beginning would be a bit painful. However, if I am able to get another vehicle...

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    Looks like another "fire sale" going on I am almost 3 weeks in on my CPO order / and there is one currently that has more battery ... more features ... (more miles and a little older) for $ 500 less. I wonder if everything starts back at Day 1 if I move the order over.

    My CPO buying experience timeline

    For those of you that were able to get a rental while waiting for your CPO... how did that happen? I am Hertz renting now... and it is getting a bit painful waiting for my car (I am only in week 3, but you know what I mean)...

    What gap insurance is .... roughly Lets say you have a loan on your car. And you get into an accident in which the car is considered totaled by your auto insurance company. At that point, the auto insurance company will put a value on what your car was worth... based on the year, mileage...

    Got a question regarding insurance I ordered last Monday (10th) & got 5/6 of the items completed. The only one that I haven't done yet was insurance. My thought is that, I don't want to get insurance setup on a car I don't own yet. I was going to wait until I get more updates on the car's...

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    I decided to "break down" and order a CarFax on my own. Piece of mind and all that... What's interesting is that, although the vehicle was said to be in the San Francisco area, all of the records show Florida. No big deal -- as long as it is truly in CA and, therefore, no transportation fee...

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    Ok ... now if it was found on the EV-CPO site and, therefore, was linked to the web site... it "should" be ok? I am wondering if I can get service records and a CarFax from Tesla. I can always order a CarFax myself, I realize ... but the service records would be nice. Having said that -- the...

    Does it make any sense to purchase a CarFax for a CPO? Does Tesla sell CPOs that have been in accidents or have other reporting "issues"?

    Big thanks to Hank and the EV-CPO.com site as well as people who read and answered my questions. Just put a deposit down this morning on a Black 60 CPO (P03911) for $ 40K. While it didn't have the roof or sound studio (which would have been nice), it does have the Tech, free Supercharging...

    Thanks Hank! (And everyone else that answered questions). I'll post a little more details on the CPO website thread, but I just put a deposit down on a CPO 60. Didn't have the roof or Sound Studio, but was definitely within my budget ( as well as having Tech & Active Air).

    Nice trick :) One of those hidden location ones that I'm looking at (P85; P01972) is in Hawaii ... that'll be a problem to drive back. :D

    So when a listing doesn't have a location mentioned --- does that "mean" something or is it simply that the location was just not added?
