Hi, Not currently a Tesla owner. I been trying to research all I can on the cost of ownerships and people feedback. I am definitely interested in wanting one. So please forgive me if thes questions been asked before. 1) I read on the Tesla site there is an annual service service for $600.00 per year. (Service plans | Tesla Motors). What is covered by this $600.00. It seems a bit pricey. Right now on my Lexus, I usually would change oil every 15k miles or 3 months which would normally cost $80.00. That comes with the typical inspections and car wash. The BMW does something similar as well. All cost annually less than $600.00. It say every year or 12,500 miles. Which is basically 3 months for the average driver. So $600.00 would get you one inspection every 12,500 miles? 2) On their blog, they say Tesla is now 8 years / Infinite Miles Warranty (Infinite Mile Warranty | Tesla Motors). What does this mean to #1 above? - - - Updated - - - By the way - http://teslaliving.net/2014/05/19/model-s-pre-paid-service-plans/ This means you have to do the inspections at the frequency they specify in the plans. But going in for an “annual” inspection every 4 months or so on a car where annual maintenance isn’t required to maintain the warranty didn’t make sense. I reached out to Tesla service to get some clarification. My question was: “If i’m a high mileage driver at 32K miles per year do I need the major/”annual” service every 12,500 miles?” They answered that it wouldn’t make sense to come in every 12,500 miles if I drive a lot more than that in a year. Their suggestion was that I have the “annual” inspection/service done every 24,000 miles and that the pre-paid service plans really don’t make sense for a high mileage driver. I’m not sure where they came up with the 24,000 number from but twice the normal would be 25,000 which makes more sense to me and the difference is minimal so thats what i’m going to work with. The math for this stands out. Lets say I plan on driving 100K miles in my Model S. If I go pre-paid, i’m going to have to pre-pay $3,800 for the 100K miles worth of services which I must perform every 12,500 miles or so. If I pay as I go and pay $600 every 25,000 miles its going to cost me $2,400. Not even considering the time value of money, paying as you go is a clear winner for high mileage drivers if you follow something closer to a true annual service.
