ok, I will try and keep this short. My hope has been that our next family car will be a Tesla. I had an 8kwh system installed on our house 3 months ago (cash, not leased) so that when we do get our Tesla it's free driving. I love not having a power bill also, PG&E already owes me a nice check. Anyways, My wife and I have test driven the Model S and she was enthused at the time and committed to buying a Tesla. On our way home from the test drive I told her we have to invest in TSLA, and we did. Between the Solar and pouring a bunch of money in TSLA, we are a bit cash poor right now My wife recently got a new job with a hefty raise but she is traveling more, probably 1000-1500 miles a month (reimbursed by employer). Our current vehicles are a 13 year old 3 series wagon and a 20 year old Landcruiser that I use for towing and snow duty as well as short trips around town as my DD. Both vehicles have 150k+ miles. My wife is paranoid about driving the 3 series since it has so many miles and has had a lot of little issues that I've been trying to get repaired ($2500-$3000 in repairs in the last 3-4 months with another $500-$1000 to go). I do not want to buy another gas vehicle, new or used. I can't get my wife to understand that if we were to finance a gas car + gas that we come out only slightly better than financing a big portion of a Model S. Anyone else have this dilemma? I don't want to pull money out of TSLA either, Frustrating. Even financing 100% of the vehicle would not stress us financially on a monthly basis. However, we haven't financed anything in years. We believe in all cash, but on this one purchase and considering our situation I'm willing to consider it. Opinions and Ideas appreciated. Thanks.
