Hi folks, I am new here and I appreciate your attention to this in advance. My situation is that i live in Michigan so I have neither a Tesla dealership nor a Carmax near my home. Nearest ones are 3 hours away. I am very close to placing my order with Tesla for my model S but my struggle is the complete lack of help with trading in my current vehicle. I cannot afford to keep two neither have any need for two cars. Tesla tells me they'll offer it up to the wholesale market and get the best bid. Well the best bid was pretty crappy. it was $1,000 below kbb fair trade in value. And they're not even trying to better it. The second issue is that even if I were to take this sub-optimal trade-in deal, I am still left without a car for at least 6 weeks while Tesla gets my order ready and delivered. They don't give a set delivery date and just say "December delivery". So here are my questions for some of you who may have gone through the throes of concerns and doubts with this whole process: What did you do about your trade-in? Did you get a better value through Carmax vs. what Tesla was offering? If you did trade-in, how long did your custom order take to arrive? What did you do during that period having surrendered your car to Tesla. I know having a second vehicle at home would be helpful but I'm not in that camp. We are a one car family. Any other thoughts/ suggestions for someone in my situation in how to best manage the trade-in dynamic vs. delivery timing of the Tesla and what could be the best option to get a good value for my trade-in (excluding private party, I just don't have the time and patience for that). Thanks a ton for your suggestions.
