    Should I fix this before returning a lease?

    Does this look bad? Should I call a mobile car repair guy to repair this before returning the lease. It’s under the car.

    Returning lease but lease balance is greater than Vehicle Value and Tesla is charging the difference, does it make sense?

    hi guys, I am returning my model 3 lease next month and getting a new model Y. but after getting my early lease termination quote, it’s charging the difference between Adjusted lease balance and Vehicle Value. I believe the $26,400 vehicle value on 2019 model 3 makes no sense, should I call...

    Tesla has ruined me for life...

    So, my 3-year lease on my Model S ends July 7, 2019. In preparation, I've begun looking for a replacement vehicle. Unfortunately, I cannot get another all-electric EV as I don't have a place to charge at my condo (LONG story). So having a Model S the past 3 years have been an absolute living...
