    Crazy question, I bought a 2014 CPO with 9k miles and have about 30k miles or almost 3 years left on the extended warranty, does anyone know if I can purchase another extended warranty once this one is up?

    I'm pretty sure that with a CPO purchase the warranty you have now is the only one you're able to obtain.

    I was told that any Tesla can only have maximun coverage of 8 years/100k miles for its lifetime, so if yours already have the extended warranty, you will not be able to extend beyond the lifetime maximum coverage.

    The original warranty on our March 2015 Tesla S will be expiring in few months. My car has about 12,000 miles on it. I was wondering if it is worth buying 2 year extended warranty ( with deductibles and restrictions) or paying for any part failures in the future?

    I am taking my car for its first check-up to the Tesla service station next week. Hopefully they can diagnose and fix items before the warranty expires.

    Would appreciate feedback from people who took the warranty and those who skipped it and the rationale. Thanks

    I believe the 8-year/100K mile warranty is for the battery. The warranty on other "non-consumables" items is for 4 year (at least on Tesla S) for manufacturing defects.

    It is up to your philosophy.

    1) Tesla durability: Consumer Reports thinks onwers experience more repairs than others while many owners think Consumer Union is wrong because there's not much to go wrong.

    2) Risk pooling: I prefer contributing to a repair fund to share it with the rest if I need it even if I might not need it and others might benefit from it and I won't ever. Others think it's a waste of money for such a thinking.

    Of course, you don't need to think about it much if you have a crystal ball to tell the future.
