    Am looking at this & was interested in people's personal experience with build quality.
    This one has autopilot, which is a mandatory requirement for my purchase.
    Has 50,000 miles

    I am interested in the comments about 'rattles & squeaks' that can't get hidden by engine noise - how big of a problem is this for Teslas?
    Any other feedback appreciated

    rattles and squeaks are the least of your worries.

    some common problems to list are:
    1st gen door handles
    drive unit noise/milling
    mcu screen bubbling

    @Nuclear Fusion - price and option list please. Also please specify in your answer whether you are talking Australian or US dollars as the car's asking price. A late 2014 can be fine if sorted out. 50,000 miles is nothing - but what's the price?
