    Hi,
    Can anyone share information about what I should look for when buying a used ModelS P60 or P85? Were there problems with this production model? I keep reading about replacements or upgrades to early production problems. What are the things I should be aware of? Thanks for reading this and any advice you have to share. I am getting worried about purchasing a CPO or used one!

    I would assume that any issues had been resolved by the original owner.

    If a CPO any added issues should be covered by the warranty. If used and not CPO, that's a different problem.

    Thank you. It is from a used car lot and has been meticulously kept but there's no way for me to know if they addressed those problems.

    If it's from a used car lot then there is no CPO... CPO is only available (to my knowledge) if you buy directly from Tesla. Also, make sure you confirm what you're buying if you're buying from a used "non-tesla" dealership. I've seen s85's advertised as P85's (for example). Also, a P60 does not exist.... only s60.

    I would never buy a Tesla from a used lot. No discounted price is worth the risk you are assuming.
