Anyone know the best way to sell a Model S? I've never done it before. Carmax? Tesla? It's 2016 70D w/FSD, only 36,000 miles. Any advice appreciated, I have no idea.
So completely true and sad. Bunch of DEEKS roam the marketplace.Carmax, Tesla, Carvana, et al will be great if you want it to go away and don't care what money you get. They'll low-ball you for the privilege of making it go away for you as if they're doing you a favor. In short, don't waste your time unless you're desperate.
Don't bother listing here unless you want to get beat up for asking anything less than the lowest price of all time anyone has ever seen for your particular car... and then like 10% less than that. Trolls seemingly reproduce rampantly in the marketplace subforums of TMC and the staff reaction is slow to say the least.
Best luck I've had is with Craigslist, Autotrader, Facebook, Nextdoor, Cars.com (in that order)
When I say Facebook I don't mean any Tesla fan groups. Don't link them to your posting either because it's basically the same toxic low-ballers you'll find in the marketplace here. Just a bunch of kids who once saw a scam post of a P100D for $25k and think they can finally afford one if they can convince someone else their $95k car is only worth $10k... cash! lol
There's really no "best" way to sell a Model S. Going to CarMax, Carvana, Vroom, etc. will at least give you a sense of the bottom dollar figure and would be the easiest way. As far as listing it for sale, you have several options including the "free" sites like FB Marketplace, Craigslist, this forum (marketplace section), etc. Then they are the paid sites like Autotrader, CarGurus, onlyusedtesla.com, etc. You can also list it for sale on consignment through a dealership or broker which would be the most expensive route but may yield the highest price.Anyone know the best way to sell a Model S?

Agree with above. Sold my model 3 in 1 day after posting on Craigslist. Just make sure money transaction is done directly at the buyer’s bank. I had 0 response from this forum.Oddly enough, I've still had the best success with any car sale by using Craigslist. Especially when you post the ad around late Friday morning.

You and me both.I just cringe at everyone taking the "easy" way out and leaving literally tens of thousands of dollars on the table. I don't think my net worth will ever be such that this is a pill I can swallow.
I live in a state where concealed carry is legal, so my transactions have less risk...
2017 75D FSD, Used Car Gurus and found a buyer without too much fuss, was still under warranty so made it a little easier. Serious buyers don't ask a lot of questions, they have researched the car and know what they want and what they will pay, if someone is asking a lot of questions, in my experience they are not serious, just kicking tires.
Don't understand this comment, are you the only one in the state that's allowed to conceal carry? If so you make a lot of sense, if not then don't you mean the risk is more?...?
Why you you let a bad MCU1 make you want to just get rid of it? The bad MCU1 can be repaired free of charge by Tesla under warranty, OR you can pay $1500 and get it upgraded to MCU2 and then you'd have 95% of a top of the line current version of the Performance Model S!I have a 2017 MS P100D. Top,of the line. Bricked in my garage with a bad MCU1 which is under warranty. But of course Tesla says. Ahh. Well. Nothings wrong. Wonder who want to but it so I can just get out.
