Model Y Performance “Demo” Purchase Question?


Jun 25, 2021

Guys I need some help here. I’m supposed to pickup my Tesla Model Y Performance today.

I’ll give you the back story. I placed my order on June 24th and my expected delivery time is October.

However, a week ago a similar spec’d out car became available on their inventory.

I got my final agreement tonight and found out the car has 2,828 miles on it.

I’m very frustrated as I have already sold my car two nights ago. There was on the paperwork a $2,700 discount, which I didn’t know that meant it was a “Demo” car.

What’s Tesla’s policy about fixing any blemishes I find in my initial inspection on the “Demo” car? Like if the rims are all scratched to hell?

I bought a blue MYP demo car with a
1370 miles on it. No issues. Though paint chips would not have been corrected. By buying the demo,, I got radar and passenger adjustable lumbar support which I wanted. I hope you are enjoying your car!
