    How much do you pay in traffic tickets since you don't have a valid inspection sticker?
    How old is the engine oil and how many miles are on it?

    Very funny :p This thread pertains regular dealership service inspection/checkups, outside of oil changes and state emissions inspection stickers.

    The poll question doesn't say that. To me, an "inspection" is where I get my annual inspection sticker. Oil changes are recommended every 4 years (ie. the oil coolant in the battery). That is the only recommended dealership service inspection/checkup for a Tesla.

    There are probably very few Tesla owners that have had their car long enough to say anything about multi-year scheduled visits to the SC.

    The poll is so poorly worded and categories poorly defined that I don't really see its usefulness.

    [Also the last 2 options on the poll's list are the same with some obvious choices missing...]

    Yes, I see how it can be mistaken for something else. I maxed out on # poll choices and can't mod it anymore.
