    - Price: $41,500
    - Mileage: 44,300
    - No accidents listed on CarFax
    - Active Air Suspension
    - RWD
    - Free Supercharging
    - 19 in wheels
    - Tech Package
    - Owner has only had it since October and is claiming Tesla will not provide service records on the vehicle from the previous owner (Current Owner Purchased it at a dealership)

    Looks like a nice Tesla.

    What is the battery size of the car?

    Based on photo #4 above looks like a P85, correct @Anthonym9589 ? If so, I say it's a good price.

    But if it's only 12' long I wouldn't buy it.

    2012 P85 with 44000 is a good deal at $41,500. I agree with Atlantan. Shame about the Dealership having been involved as a middle-man, as it prevents you from getting the extended warranty. But at this price it's a risk I'd take.

    Have you seen this car in person? I'm asking because you report at 2012 P85, but on the back of the car it says P85D (which didn't exist in 2012). The discrepancy set of a warning bell for me, and I would personally want to see the car in person, and verify that they have title in hand and that this is not a scam.

    Look at the last photo. Badge is placed wrong and looks like PxxD something.

    Yeah, I cant make it out, but if that badge says P85D, run. Run far away.

    To resolve the discrepancy of the car's year versus the "D" badge, what do the car's displays report? P85? P85D? And how big is the frunk - is it reduced in size due to the presence of a motor? Have you seen the car use free Supercharging? Get the current owner to ask Tesla when the next service is due and which service should be performed and get him to forward the email(s) from Tesla.

    About the warranty.... in Europe, the warranty provided by Tesla with CPOs is covered by Allianz and it is now possible to buy the warranty direct from Allianz, regardless of how/where you bought the car (provided the car is not more than 4 years old and under 50K miles) - is something similar possible in the USA?

    FYI, some early D models still had the full size front. They were a bit of an oddity, for sure, but a smaller frunk is not a slam dunk it is not a D.

    This. Check it out in person if you can. People removed badges, changed them, etc. A lot of early cars did not get a badge at all, I don't remember if it was a customer decision or if they didn't badge them then.
    A decent price, as long as you go into it knowing there's no auto pilot, adaptive cruise, folding mirrors...

    None of the D's had the full size frunk. The 'microwave' area in the back is only in the RWD cars, as that's where the front motor sits. The earlier cars had a larger frunk than the now very small facelift frunk.

    Let me state one simple fact: There were NO "D" models in 2012.

    True, the "microwave" was absent. I should have been more clear, the "frunk bin" (the big tub) was the same part number. It was a lot nicer to have this big frunk than what they put in later D models.

    Agreed. I found the craigslist post for this car, it looks to be a 2012 that someone slapped a "D" badge on.

    If everything else checks out, it looks like a good deal.
