    Where's the "A car in the stable was totaled and the previous car replaced it" option? That's kind of like trading it in because you got insurance money.

    Model S replaced a Chevy Volt and girlfriend's New Beetle. 100% EV household now.

    For me, it's replacing a gas car that I really enjoyed for 12 years, but it's a 12 year old car and it's time to move on. (2004 Mustang Convertible, bought brand new in 2003.) I don't consider it a piece of crap by any means - it served me very well and held out long enough (with surprisingly few problems after warranty) for me to save up enough for a MS!

    We went from:

    2012 Nissan Leaf, 01 Honda Odyssey, 96 Toyota 4Runner

    to:

    2014 Model S, 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth

    The old ICE cars were due, but we really like the small size of the Fiat. Much easier for the tight parking spots in Seattle. Much better gas mileage too.

    The S is the big long distance car now. :)

    Yep. It was time for a new car and I traded in my previous ICE for the Model S.

    It replaced my car, because I don't need two cars. I won't call my ICE a "piece of crap" tho
