Hi all - I had a family member reserve a car for me using his account. Tesla would not move the RN over to my account after several requests, and provided the following options:

1. Use family member's account to fill in all registration and payment / delivery details. Take delivery of the car, then have the car moved over.
2. Cancel the RN and place a new RN from my account.

I chose option #1, but would like to know if the MVPA and all other glovebox docs also move over once the car is moved to my account. I am the sole registered owner and the one purchasing the car / on loan etc. This part is pretty important.

Anyone done this recently?

I don’t think they move over but the glovebox docs aren’t the end of the world. Just download a copy before moving the car. The old/original account will have them it’s in glovebox under previously owned vehicle forever. I have every Tesla I’ve ever owned under “previously owned vehicles” and if i click on one, i get the glove box option with their MVPA and etc

Yes this is what I have noticed as well. Just silly when the car was never “owned” but that person. He just placed the reservation. I emailed Tesla also - we will see what they say. Thanks for the reply!

That’s interesting. My first Tesla (2013) which I sold to private party in 2018 disappeared from my account. Not sure how to get it back.
