    Is the deposit for solar panels refunded if canceled within the 5-day cool-down period?

    As the subject says, I'd like to know if I get my $400 deposit back if I cancel within the 5-day (CA) Cancellation Rights period. To be honest, I'm an idiot and forgot to use my referral link and confirmed the design Sunday evening. They've made it clear that adding in a referral post order...

    Can Tesla UK increase new car cost on existing order?

    Hi, I have an order for a new MX with my deposit paid cost @£91000. Placed the order back in November 2020 for their quoted March 2021 delivery. I just received a text from Tesla which reads like the car is going to now cost me £10000 more. Guess this is due to refresh. This means that the...

    What happens after $100 deposit?

    Questions about ordering Model 3

    I am about to place an order for a new Model 3. I have a few questions: 1. Do they still have a referral system? Is it worth getting a referral code from someone? Do I get something? Does the referring person get something? 2. They now require a $2500 deposit. I was told on the phone that...

    Deposit applicable to other/future model?

    I recently purchased a new home, something that wasn't on my radar when I put down my initial reservation deposit in 2016. I have been bombarded with emails and calls from Tesla representatives trying to get me into a Model 3, at least for a test drive. I have no doubt I'd love the car, but a...

    How safe is the deposit?

    I am thinking about putting down a deposit on a Model 3, but I am a little worried about the safety of the money. If there is a stock market crash or another financial crisis there might be a lot of people trying to get deposits back (potentially $600 million) at a time when Tesla might find it...

    Feeling misinformed on my CPO order (substantive previous damage) -- what should I do?

    So... the time had finally come. After months of searching EV-CPO and carefully watching all of my custom alerts, I'd found a CPO that matched exactly what I was looking for (the day after it was added). The CPO specialist I'd been working with gave me a call about it as well, saying he thought...

    Order, Cancel, Repeat

    When you place an order, there's a $2,500 deposit that locks you into a price and configuration. But you can change your order or back out within a week if you change your mind or, this is key, Tesla makes changes on their Design Studio that would be desirable. Here's one scenario (as of...

    So It Begins...

    Hello everyone, Today I placed my deposit for my Model S. This has been almost a year in the making. I'm beyond estatic with my decision and look forward to the long process until it's in my garage. I'm looking for any tips and advice. I will also share my progress in hope to help others. Thank...
