    Hi,

    Curious. A newly purchased Model S comes with 8 years and unlimited miles warranty on the battery. Plus the standard 4 years and 50,000 miles warranty on the car.

    If you buy a CPO that said

    Does that mean,
    1) you have the remaining of the 8 years of battery warranty and unlimited miles? There is no extension on the year to the battery warranty?

    2) you have the remaining of the 4 years and 50,000 miles warranty "AND" extend that additional 4 years w/50,000 miles CPO warranty? So technically could be up to 8 years @ 100,000 miles total?

    My understanding is:

    1: Yes

    2: Your 4 year/50k mile CPO warranty starts the day your pick up your car regardless of the previous mileage. Let's say your car was first bought new in 2014 and now has 30k miles, your CPO warranty will run out 4 years from now or at 80k miles.

    How do you find out on what exact date the 8 year battery warranty ends, when buying CPO? I got a 2016, but don't know when the previous owner's 8 year clock started running.

    Used warranty restarts the clock for 50k/4 years unless it's already hit 50k miles in which case you get a shorter warranty, I think only 25k miles and 2 years.

    Your vehicle registration document should tell you when it was first registered, at least thats what we have in the UK, and thats when the 8 year clock started.

    The 8 yr warranty on the battery is from the date/month the car was built.

    Yes, when I purchased my 2013 CPO, I was told the battery warranty started the month/year my car was manufactured, which was Nov. 2013.
