    Can I sell my brand new tesla to someone the day I take delivery?

    I am in this predicament as well now. I have a 2022 Model 3 SR that I do not need. It was from a buyback swap of my 2021 Model 3, but I upgraded to a Model Y already and took delivery. I live in Houston,TX and have been looking into what, if any options I have in getting out of the tax on the...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Did some research and you are right. After 3 years I would only owe 30k and it still be worth 55k roughly. That is 25k in equity. Over those 3 years it is $7,200 more than leasing so I would come out ahead roughly $18k. I just have to put my wife's frame of mind that it is a savings account...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Do you have to pay the full taxes up front on the lease as well in Texas? I was under the impression the Sales Tax on a lease is factored into the lease price. The reason I was going to go with the lease and put $11,440 down and pay $745 per month, while putting $8,500 in investments. If I end...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Yeah this is the way I am leaning as well. I just wanted to get as many eyes and opinions on it as possible. I guess I could order and take delivery of both. I wonder if Chase Bank would allow me to modify my loan once I got the check from my equity in the wrecked M3 and the sale of the 2022 M3...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Yeah so here is where it stands right now. Tesla got back to me and admitted that the car was indeed wrecked and the only reason it is showing up on the Carfax is because the test driver had to file an insurance claim because they could not cover the damage. They told me normally Tesla would...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    That is lesson I learned so far from this. Unless it has 0.00 miles on it, I will probably run a Carfax/Autocheck on it. I am naturally an optimistic person so to me it is very possible no one at Tesla intentionally did this, perhaps there was miscommunication internally or a breakdown of...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    3% is ~$1,200. So yeah. My brother had a fender bender where the sensor fell off the bumper and it was 8k on his exact model and year as mine.

    Then it has to be from Fremont California. This is what is on my 553-TX-ARB-e Sales Contract.

    Yes, according to the damage scale it can have a 3 number range. Autocheck and Carfax reported airbag deployment. The Crash report filled out by the officer also listed code number 5, which means multiple airbags deployed.

    Minor damage to the building. The vehicle damage rating was 12-FD-3. Which by the state of Texas resembles something close to these two images.

    Dude...took your advice. Autocheck had the actual case number. So I did some digging and found out it was Harris County Sheriffs Office that filed the report. Went to the TXDOT website, purchased the State Accident Report. Unbelievable.

    December of 2020, which keeps it in play. That was a good idea though. Thanks!

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Not yet. I am waiting for Tesla to respond. Those are good ideas, I have not taken it to a body shop. When I took delivery of the car I inspected it close like everyone on this site says to do (panel gaps, chips, rim scuffs, etc) It looked great and still does. The Carfax does not list where it...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    I want to give Tesla a chance to make it right I love my car and still plan on buying another one even with these issues. At the same time I also don't want this to take months to resolve if possible. I have sent information to an attorney that specializes in diminished value in vehicles, and I...

    They took $1700 off the total, it was only a couple of hundred miles max.

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Thanks. The longer I think about it I am thinking this is the way. I love Tesla and my car, but I just want them to make it right. All I wanted to do was take the equity and flip it into a Model Y for my kids getting bigger.

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    Here is the where my major question lies. I bought the car for ~$42k. I owe about 30k on it. The carvana, vroom sites are in the $46-$48k range. So if I undo the loan I would be losing an additional $4-6k in market value on it. Lol. It’s just a giant mess.

    Yeah it’s even marked as a new car on my loan paperwork.

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    That is definitely something I am considering. According to my Order Agreement it lists that I give it 60 days to find a resolution before taking it to an independent arbitration. Below that it says I can choose small claims court as well. I am in Texas and unfamiliar with what the maximum would...

    Tesla Sold Me A Wrecked M3 As New

    I have been looking into upgrading my 2021 Model 3 SR+ to a Model Y. So I have been shopping my car around on the Carvana's, Vroom's of the world. My brother has the same car I do and was getting offers of 46-49k for his. So when I got mine back at 23k I was surprised. One of them contacted me...

    Sales Tax - Up front or wrapped in finance?

    I am in Texas and have to pay out of pocket. I am going through the process of paying it now but my local county tax office is asking for proof that it has been inspected, which was not in the packet when I purchased. Do I have to go get my car inspected or will Tesla be able to prove it has...

    I didn't want to start a new thread, but do you guys recommend buying Teslas 14-50 adapter for $45 or is there an alternative that is better?

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I am scheduled to pick my M3 up tomorrow in Houston, TX but I don’t think I’m going to make it by the time they close at 6, which is when my appointment is scheduled for. They told me it would be a touch less delivery, so will it just be sitting in their parking lot when I get there and I use my...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    My May 4th order of SR+ White/White no upgrades was showing mid to late June forever, past 3 days it has been showing 8-12 weeks. I hopped on the chat on Tesla website and they found me a SR+White/White Demo with less than 1k miles with no transport fee. Only difference was this one has the...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I also wonder if the recent news of Tesla having to build cars in Texas, ship them out, and back in has anything to do with it. I dont think the Tesla Texas factory is up yet. https://www.theverge.com/2021/5/30/22457455/tesla-texas-factory-law-ship-out-of-state-direct-sale-legislation
