I've taken delivery of my Model S on August 15 and still have not been given access to the Tesla App. I only have access to my account online and the account has been paid in full and shows a zero balance. Is this a common thing that happens with a purchase of a Tesla?

No, not normal. Please call Tesla up.

In earlier years, it took several days or hours to get your car on your app.

As of 2018, I got that instantly at the beginning of the delivery when I waited to sign the paperwork.

I have spoken to the delivery manager and was told my vehicle is showing pending delivery in the Tesla system and may take days or weeks to be granted access since I'm the second owner. Thank you Tan for your quick response.

Did you buy from Tesla? I did and one of the items my delivery advisor verified was that my app was paired to my car and worked.

Hi All,

Which section can I ask my question below please?

I am reading to buy a used 2017/2018 Model S but I want to know facts on what the differences are between 2017 vs 2018 if any?
Is there a VIN range that shows which changes etc or do we know by the Build Dates?
I was told to only buy a 2017 from the dates of 3/2017 to 12/2017 and any prior from 3/2017 to 10/2016 is missing some updates?
Id like to know from the masters the changes or differences please as all the online info isnt accurate.

I just need it to have : HiFI, HEPA, Subzero, P100DL, and optional HiPower Charger, Pano Roof or all Glass, Sunroof is okay also.
Dont Care about FSD as I most likley will buy used from Tesla site for ease of buying plus they give extra warranty and free supercharging.

Any heating issues with a 2017 or 2018 from using Ludicris all the time? Will my used Model S be able to hit the 2.4 sec 60?

Guide me please to the facts!

The primary factor that you did not post. Your budget. The rest follows the answer to that question

I am sorry, I missed that part. Id like to stay at $80k and below for a 2017-2018 Model S P100DL, S with Carbon Decor, Subzero, HiFi, HEPA, and under 50k miles on it so I can get the Tesla added warranty period.
