Hi All, I'm thinking about buying a used model S directly from an original owner. As you probably know, only the original owner can add the ESA (extended service agreement, aka extended warranty). Once added, it's transferable to the new owner. But, a lot of sellers out there haven't added it yet. My question is, are there any special hoops that need to be jumped through in order to make sure the ESA legitimately transfers to the new owner? Is there any "wait time" that has to occur after purchasing the ESA, but before selling the car privately? I can't seem to find any such restrictions, but figured I'd ask here. My apologies if this has already been covered in another thread. Here's what I'm thinking could be the order of operations for doing the private sale: 1) Meet the seller at my bank 2) Inspect the MS, if everything looks good, walk into my bank and get a cashier's check for the agreed sale price of the car, plus $4000. The seller gets to watch and see it's legit. 3) Drive over to a Tesla store, walk in together and purchase the ESA (at this point, the seller does still own the car) 4) Walk out to the parking lot and sign/obtain the pink slip and hand over the cashier's check. Anyone see a hole in that? I've heard there's also a step (5), where the new owner has to tell Tesla that they are the new owner, and hence can get access to the Tesla app which connects to the car? I've heard that as far as Tesla can tell, this is their only indication of a change in ownership? Should one wait and do step 5 some day(s) later, just to let the ESA sink in? Or can I walk right back into the Tesla store immediately after step 4 and do this? Or, should I wait till I get the new pink slip with my name on it? thanks!!
