FSD refunds / "test drive"

If I buy a new Tesla and purchase FSD, then decide FSD is not worth it, will Tesla grant a refund?

I understand I could return the entire car itself, and order a new one without FSD, but that obviously seems like more of a hassle.

(I tried to search for the answer in the post history, but all refund posts I could find were related to FSD price drops.)

First, Tesla just ended the 7-day return policy, so that is no longer an option.

If you buy it without FSD, you can then buy FSD via the app upgrades and you have 48-hours to try it out and request a refund if you decide you don't want to keep it.
