It's hard to believe we've lived through a full year already since we purchased our Tesla! The time has flown by super fast partially because we've been so busy going on awesome road trips and other regional adventures in it! I've created a video reviewing our first year of ownership covering the operating and maintenance costs plus how well it has performed as our primary family hauler. If you have any other questions I didn't cover in the video feel free to post your questions in the comments on the video. I get a lot of questions from friends and family surprised that we don't own any gasoline cars and they think you can't get by with only driving electric, and I'm trying to help inform people how much better it is driving electric let alone just "getting by" as some think it is. Feel free to share with others you know who may be on the fence still about switching from gas to electric. I'm including some fun numbers below related to owning our Tesla for the first year but first here's the URL to my YouTube video review. In 1 year we’ve driven 22,656 miles / 36,461 kilometers (Starting odometer: 63,796 Ending odometer: 86,452) Average of: 332 Wh/mi / 206 Wh/km (this average is June 21 2019 through May 12th 2020 over 19,785.2 miles total consumption being 6,573.4 kWh) 332 Wh/mi * 22,656 = 7,521.79 kWh consumed in our first year which at 10.9 cents per kWh (average in Utah where we live) amounts to a cost of $819.87 however we haven’t paid a cent for any of that electricity since we've charged for free from superchargers (on road trips), campgrounds, hotels, work, and friends/families homes (while on road trips). We have solar at home and we haven’t exceeded our production, however the energy going to the car is still going towards our solar payoff so if we multiplied the 4,135.9 kWh of electricity we’ve put into our Tesla at home (via a JuiceboxPro 40) by the average electricity rate for Utah at 10.9 cents per kWh we would have paid $450.81 but in about 2 years our solar will be paid off and we’ll be powering all our household and vehicular electrical needs literally for free for the next couple of decades. We’ve charged at 62 unique superchargers 85 times and 4 destination chargers in 15 different states We’ve given rides to 88 people that we remember and probably a couple more I’ve camped out in the car 4 times with all 3 of my children A couple times we’ve had 5 children all 5 years old and under (all requiring a car seat) plus two adults in the car utilizing the rear facing seats which has been pretty cool to be able to do since many vehicles struggle with this many car seats. Destinations we’ve driven it to After we picked it up in Fremont California we drove it home to Salt Lake City, Utah then the larger trips we went on over the next year include going to: Vernal, UT camping Nauvoo, IL and many places there and back Saint George, UT Pinedale, WY camping Orlando, Florida and many places there and back Repairs we’ve had made all covered under warranty and all by mobile service rangers at our house: Takata airbag recall (same as virtually all vehicles on the planet) Within the first week of purchasing it the rear passenger handle stopped popping out which is a known weakness of this year of Model S so the pop out gear and position switches were replaced The left backup light stopped working so the left rear light assembly was replaced The trunk lid kept not popping up fully and would get into a state where it wouldn’t latch so the cinching mechanism was replaced and when that didn’t fix it they came back and replaced the trunk latch and that fixed the problem Replaced the 12 volt battery The navigation stopped working and they couldn’t fix it remotely so a service technician had to come and reset some systems in person to get it working. Things I’ve had to pay for: Replaced the windshield wipers for $12 Replaced all four tires with Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 for $890.67 Replaced air filter for $18 Total maintenance I’ve had to pay: $920.67 We still have 1 year of the warranty, but only 13,548 miles remaining so we’ll see what happens first.
