    Used Model S Repairs/Service History

    Hi, y'all! Considering (yet again) a used 2014 model S with around 150K miles. Pretty nervous I'll be hit with some heavy upgrades, as it is pretty much out of warranty and I'd be paying for any battery/drivetrain stuff outta pocket as it comes closer to a quarter million miles. Does anyone here...

    Contemplating the purchase of a 2018 Model S 100D with about 30K miles. Basic warranty is set to expire in 1-2 months. I had a terrible experience with a 2020 MY I bought new. Car & service were horrible.

    Nine-year-old Tesla with the original battery, yes you should buy a used one

    128000 miles and the original battery. I can’t tell you how much I love this vehicle. I have convinced 14 people now to switch over to Tesla. Here’s my latest argument about why you should buy a used Tesla.

    If I wanted to buy a MS from a dealer or PP, how can I tell what options it has? I like the ev-cpo site as you can see all the options, but since Tesla has done away with the 4 yr warranty...it makes sense to shop around. So how do I tell if it has all the options I want online (without...
