    Did anyone here get the extended service agreement? I was told it was not an extended warranty but an extended service agreement and wasn't sure what the difference was. I realize the extended service agreement doesn't cover the battery. I have a few months to decide if I want it or not. Thanks.

    I got it. It does say Extended Service Agreement on it. It appears to cover the same items as the initial warranty. I would think they'd send you a blank one to look it over if you told them you were considering it.

    There is a $100 deductible, which I don't think the initial warranty has. It looks like it is $100 for each covered repair, but once you've paid the deductible for repairing/replacing a given part you wouldn't pay a deductible for any subsequent repairs/replacements of that part.

    Thanks. They just sent me the blank agreement. I was sent the wrong one at first and it didn't include the rest of the agreement after the first page. I may do it. I'm enjoying this car so much I'm planning on keeping it for a long time.

    How long do you have to decide? I got mine back in April so it's still under a year and I would be interested in it. They never brought it up and I don't remember asking them about it at the time (which in hindsight wasn't a brilliant move on my part). Thanks.

    When I inquired, I was told a new owner could purchase the Extended Service Agreement within 90 days of purchasing the car. I wonder if that has changed?

    It hasn't changed. They do list it as an option when you buy the car and it's on some of the paperwork as well. I waited until after delivery to make sure I liked driving the car before I decided to get it.
     
  7. The extended warranty is a must. I believe Tesla charges a Labor rate of $175/hr/ The extended warranty will easily pay for itself.
     
  8. You will buy your Model S and the Extended Warranty right?:crying:

    I inquired. In Europe they can't offer the extended warranty at present but expect to do so again before my vehicle needs it (so, by late Q1 2013).
