    I am concerned as NONE of the links to extended warranties in the UK work and there are NO used cars on the Tesla site this morning!

    If I cannot extend my warranty after 4 years this December OR upgrade to a newer used Tesla I stand to lose a potential £58000 over 2 years if something major goes wrong with mt car!

    I have written to my service centre but TBH if I cannot extend my warranty after 4 years I will cut my losses and sell my P85 and revert to an ICE car which I really do NOT want to do!

    Tesla seems to be totally incompetent when it comes to information sites or managing its referral programme - I AM worried about Tesla's future as it appears to be shutting down gradually in the UK based on hard evidence!

    Yes, Tesla is totally shutting down in the UK. It's because of Brexit. All car manufacturers are shutting down except for Riversimple who are 100% British. You will have to buy a hydrogen car from them.

    Seriously though if they do not warrant cars after 4 years and have no used cars for sale it is going to hit Tesla massively!

    The 8 year extended warranty has been available in the UK for a few years now. It's actually an "approved" insurance policy provided by Allianz.

    BTW, the link from Tesla's support page is working for me: Allianz

    Yes, they're shutting down. Apple and Amazon are, too.

    Yes.. I can confirm they are shutting down.. everyone else is shutting down too after Brexit.... now the British have decided that the rest of the world doesn’t exist, except for a few colonial outposts to which we will still be exporting 1950s Morris’s and Austin’s..... it’s like a whole country has strapped a flux capacitator to its political system and pressed go....

    Still no used cars and the link from "My Tesla" to more info on the extended warranty after 4 years has not worked for 2 weeks. GREAT car but dreadful IT skills:-(
