    Have an original Signature that I bought second hand.

    As my warranty was coming to expiry I was willing to buy an extended warranty but was told it was not offered to second owners.

    Now, within 2 months of expiry I find that Tesla has changed policy.

    Anyone else fall through the cracks on this?

    Have you called Tesla to see if they will make an exception for you?

    Not sure if the rules in Canada are different, but according to this (US page), you can buy up to one month before expiry:

    Vehicle Warranty

    This is a common misconception, but it's actually up to 30 days/1000 miles AFTER expiration (in US, at least.)

    "What is the eligible purchase period for Tesla Extended Service Agreements, and what do they cover?
    You may purchase the Extended Service Agreement no later than 30 days or 1,000 miles (1,600 km), whichever occurs first, past the expiration of your New Vehicle Limited Warranty."

    I've asked my local dealer who apparently asked "California" and the answer seems to be no.

    I am about a month away from my 4 year ownership anniversary and am still looking for advice on purchasing an extended package.

    One problem I have is I get to the extended warranty page via My Tesla, and when I click on the "Learn More" link, nothing happens!!!!

    And I really need to learn more before I can make an informed decision.

    I am also trying to rationalize why the 2 year plan costs $2800 Cdn and the 4 year plan costs $5700 Cdn? Shouldn't the 4 year commitment be less expensive by some amount?

    In Manitoba, waiting to wake my 2013 Grey S85 from its winter slumber.

    The older car is more risky, so the 4 year plan isn't just 2x the 2 year plan.

    I am from Montreal. I bought my car second hand. I purchased the extended warrranty by myself. That was 2 years ago.

    My car has 170,000 km now, still runs like new. But I used the waranty for almost 10k... well worth it...

    Did you get the 2 or 4 year option?

    Do you know if you can get the 2 year and then get another 2 at the end of the first 2?

    Do you mind if I ask what types of issues you had and what model you have?

    I have 4 weeks to purchase an extended Warranty.
