    So I pulled the trigger on a used Model S P100D.. WOOHOO!! Even though it is used it is coming exactly like I'd option it. ( I hope..)

    The car I am purchasing comes with FSD, free supercharging and UHFS, however, none of that is listed on the MVPA. I'm just curious, isn't the purchase agreement the 'legal binding' contract? Shouldn't these items be listed? Or am I getting worked up over nothing? I did a quick search but most of the findings pertain to one or two particular threads that didn't answer my question. These options are listed in every other place you can look on the 'My Tesla' page, some like FSD more than once. Just need to verify before I send my bank the file. My Tesla contact is off today, and I'm sure they would say 'don't worry about it' anyways LOL.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would get it put on the MVPA, otherwise this becomes a he said he said, and ultimately Tesla wins in most of those scenarios. Everything that is part of the P100D, have them listed it in detail (specially the AP/EAP/FSD and the Unlimited Premium Connectivity).

    Better to be safe then sorry.

    You’re buying a used car, the MVPA lists options the vehicle had when it was sold new.
    Tesla adds and removes features from used vehicles.

    It's a legal receipt of what was paid for.

    Since Tesla does do software enabling/disabling features, when in doubt, Tesla would base on that receipt to enable/disable those features: Legal written contract, not verbal reassurances or from a rogue employee who put it in writing outside of MVPA (such as as an e-mail...)

    If those features are not listed on MVPA, you might have to pay again if Tesla makes an audit.

    He’s buying it from Tesla, as you may know they’ve added and removed stuff from their used vehicle fleet. Which would explain the non matching window sticker.

    OP: honestly I wouldn’t worry about it, just save the document that lists the features the car comes with now and you’ll be fine.

    As others said, if it aint on the MVPA, it aint guaranteed.

    I had EAP listed on my MVPA, and didnt get it. One trip to the SC to show them the MVPA, and had it in a day.

    My used purchased (Demo) was never titled, so it was sold to me as "new". I did not have lifetime free supercharging listed on my MVPA.

    But on the website, it clearly said "all new Model S's have lifetime free supercharging"

    Showed that descrepancy to my client advisor, and she took care of it in about a week.

    Loophole that I think theyve since closed.

    To clarify, this thread is not about Monroney Window Sticker. It is about MVPA or Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement.

    If some features are listed on the Monroney Window Sticker but taken away in MVPA, then the MVPA is the legal valid contract one, not the Monroney Window Sticker.

    Monroney Window Sticker shows what the car is equipped with but the driver can selectively take some features out to lower the price as reflected on the MVPA.

    Uh oh... So... Should I worry about it then? :eek:

    I was told that the MVPA was only generated (online, maybe?) because I selected 3rd party financing. Just so I can send that doc to the bank. My Order Agreement does list all the options. I'll just make sure before I sign that everything is listed. To be honest I was just kind of rattled as I had put the $100 down and then was told I had to have financing done in 48 hours or they'd release the car. Was going to go through Tesla but since I live in Texas I was told Tesla cannot finance (thanks Texas...) so was rushing things faster than I would have liked and didn't want to make a mistake. Thanks for everyone input!

    I just popped onto my Tesla account to look at my MVPA from my used purchased last year. Page one is what your finance company needs. Page two is what you’re paying for. It’ll go into detail on what you get. Mine says for instance super charger enabled. Free lifetime supercharging: enabled. EAP enabled etc. every detail you see online SHOULD be on your page 2 of the MVPA. Even if you save the page from online it may not be enough. I’d push back on your delivery specialist for this to be fixed. It’s a lot easier proving that it needs to be done because it was in their contract than it was online for the car. At the very least get your specialist to put it in writing that it should come with x...
