Just curious, how many here have cars that are on their original drive unit? Pre-facelift cars only. Please state year and mileage. Thanks

May 28, 2015 P85D, with Ludicrous upgrade after purchase, now has 21,000 miles, still on original drive unit. Car runs like new. (Low mileage because I'm retired).

Both of my Model Ss were pre-face-lift. First one, a 2012, sold at 82,000 miles, nothing wrong with drive unit that I know of. My "new" Model S, a 2015, has 93,000 miles, drives just fine every day. I would guess that drive unit replacements are not the norm, so why are you worrying? Any idea how long the drive units are warrantied for?

2015 P90DL, 34,000 miles, drive system works perfectly. (It is a facelift car, thanks to a recent upgrade by Unplugged Performance - pic).

Friend's 2016 75RWD. 80k miles. Origninal DU. Just talked to him this weekend - he has never done a service. Just an interesting datapoint.

The question was drive "unit", not drive "units". Every answer above was for cars with dual drive units.

I believe the OP is asking "Are there any pre-facelift, rear drive cars that are on the original DU. The answer to that question is likely "zero".

But I could be wrong...

My car I listed above is RWD with original DU. It is a little noisy so hopefully it will get replaced before warranty is over.
