Hi
Few questions. Apparently in NY if you make use of the $2000 EV rebate then you CANNOT return the car in the 7 day window. I will be picking up in Mt Kisco. If any of have any 'recent" pickup experience at this location please advise.

1) Can I ask to inspect the car "before" signing the title documents?

2) Can some one provide a check list for inspection before accepting the car?

3) If after inspection, there are too many problems can I not accept delivery? If so do they allocate a new car to me?

Thanks.

My car was already opened and I got a long time to go through mine, with a checklist, before I hit accept. The delivery specialist was patient and let me really take my time. I used the attached checklist and it covered everything I could think of.

You can always reject the car. You truly have the final say on whether this will be your car. Best of luck.

Wow this is thorough list -- thank you -- printing this out before picking up the vehicle. Appreciate this.

Most things can be fixed afterwards.. the most important is to note any scratches or paint issues - since they can claim that the issue happened after delivery.

Also be prepared for a long time to resolve issues.. I’ve had 2 appointments and now have to go to a body shop and maybe a 3rd Tesla visit.
