I suggest at least a 2-year visit to protect your investment and sustain reliability.
Brakes wear. Oil eventually degrades. Coolant also. There may be slow leaks. Some firmware updates require hands-on installation. Chassis and suspension can go out of alignment.
Even if you keep the car in a garage and rarely use it, coolant will start corroding metal from the inside as it’s anti-corrosion additives are depleted.
I saw it happen to a car my in-laws kept at their second residence. After 6 years of sustained non-maintenance of an off-lease used car I opened the hood and saw white deposits where the coolant had eaten through couplings.
Yes the battery has coolant, recommended change interval is I believe 4years/48K miles.
I think the OP knows this I just want to clarify for others. There is no "motor oil" there is gearbox oil that at times Tesla has suggested changing after the first year.
I have never done Tesla's periodic maintenance. Low cost of maintenance was one of the many selling points back when I purchased.
i think that list is missing the gearbox oil?
I remember it being the only oil the car used.
Or am i remembering wrong?
I spoke with a service rep 2 days ago, he said they don't do coolant flushes any more. He said that the fluid drained was so clean, Tesla decided it is not necessary.My last drive unit replacement was at about 80,000 miles, so I guess I'm overdue for new coolant with nearly 140,000 now.

That's what I said. He just speculated it doesn't need anti corrosion. Maybe this (no more coolant flush) should be corroborated with another service center.Coolant is (typically) always clean when changed after 10 years but the point is to refresh the anti-corrosion inhibitors that degrade over time.
I was told much the same. They didn't do it on my 50k service, due to a mixup, and when I asked I was told that the recommended interval was now 100k miles.I spoke with a service rep 2 days ago, he said they don't do coolant flushes any more.
