It's finally available on MyTesla for the X!
This is what it was before, this is a significant price increase and it will dissuade a lot of prospective owners from purchasing a Tesla.
For me, when I click on the "Next" button on the main MyTesla page, it just waits a second and then refreshes. I don't see the details you showed. Maybe a bug in the web-site?
Yea, it seemed to stop working when I tried going back to it. Good thing I captured some screenshots.
Update - the links are working now!
And what is drive unit fluid service? Could that be the oily/slimy stuff that is leaking from the front of my car currently??
My Model X is SMOKING???
Where is the terms and conditions? I remember there is a $200 charge per visit for extended warranty on model S.
It has the $200 deductible per visit.
It also seems to explicitly not cover battery and drive train?
I think the drive units need some kind of internal lubrication oil. Are those puddles under your front axle?
The only benefit I see from the first year service is the windshield wiper replacement (cost unknown and parts not as easily obtained by us) and the drive unit fluid replacement, which is only offered on the first year of service. Probably to remove any shavings and filings during break in, similar to the short service schedule for an ICE oil change. Tire rotations are N/A for those of us with staggered wheels and directional tires. Multi-point inspections and wheel alignment checks are okay, but I'm not sure what percentage of issues it catches. Kind of expensive for two useful services. I wonder if I could get the second year service with a drive unit fluid replacement since everything else is included in the second year as well.
Wait till they try to charge these fee's to a Model 3 customer who is paying $35k for the car.
... Shouldn't an EV have LESS maintenance? These whole things boggle my mind. If it ain't broke...
If/when the car has an issue, I'll bring it in, or fix it myself. Why would you need any of these 'plans'?
Thought battery and drive train are already covered by the original 8 year unlimited warranty? is that not true?
I don't mind the cost of the X warranty -- mostly because I'm afraid of how much a door will cost down the road.
But those service fees are a huge ripoff. Costs way more than an ICE minivan/SUV.
Well, technically when you have the extended warranty (ESA), in those extended 4 years it explicitly states you have to service on interval for years 5-8. But, you can not service the first 4 years technically and be fine. It really depends. Our X has been going in for issues this first year and they check it out a decent amount each time it goes in. You can opt likely to do some individuals things (filters/fluids) when needed though or recommended by SC.
I have my X in since Tue for the 12v battery replacement and the first year service based on mileage. I wonder if they will charge me new rates or rates as of Tue when they took it in
Dang, it is more pricy for the 4 year ESA - especially here where sales tax is 10.25%. I may wait until we move to Texas where it's lower and out of this failing state/city before purchasing it since no rush ;-)
All the S prices went up also some, and the service plans (which I prefer to just do individually).
Yup it is on the front towards the passenger side
But did you notice that us early adopters have to pay an extra $500 since we owned the car for over 180 days?? I thought they would offer a waiver since they just announced the extended warranty
The drive units (specifically the transmission and the differential) have oil in them, just like in a regular ICE. Its not unheard of for manufactures to recommend a diff or transmission fluid change after the break in period.
Tesla will obviously honor the lower price. I would expect all owners to have 180 days from the date the plans were announced to receive the lower price.
I think if you buy through you SC they can definitely waive any concerns with the plan being so late. Ours said they would if needed.
