    I understand that there is still an 8k service charge, at time of purchase, for those living outside a service area. Can anyone say how long this coverage is for; e.g., the life of the car, 5 years...? Does it only cover getting the vehicle to a service center, but not cover any actual maintenance? If a person sold their vehicle, would there be any reimbursement of this charge and if so, would it or how would it be prorated? If a person pays for this coverage and a service center is subsequently opened that is convenient to them, would this charge, or a portion of it be refunded?

    You probably want to contact Tesla directly with questions like that.

    Service charge is waived!

    Great news y'all. Tesla has decided to waive the 8k service fee. Owners will need to get their vehicles to a service station (as needed) using whatever method is available/beneficial to them. This eliminates the need to consider how to rebate any of the service charge to individuals as service stations are opened that are more convenient to them.
