You could argue that a Tesla with the extended motor and battery warranty is a better high mile bet than an ICE, as with any car higher miles will mean higher risks of wear on suspension components etc. If the car is priced attractively and has a good history then as long as you factor in a budget for repairs it could be worth a punt.Curious, because have looked at and almost bought the same car, but with high miles at 145K, what concerns would everyone have with a car of that age and miles? (its a 2015 P85D)
Latest update to my car, I noticed that the passenger front door handle wasn’t presenting when touched. Pretty obvious why on removing the handle

it looks like the vapor barrier had fallen off exposing the wiring, then the window clasp mechanism then basically ripped all the wiring out.
I couldn’t find anyone selling the sensor and didn’t fancy the price of a complete new one, so purchased one off eBay with a broken gear. Removed the handle and sensor and fitted it to mine. Refitted the vapor barrier, as a tip heat the mastic seal with a hair dryer to soften it and make it stickier, it will then adhere much better.
So fixed for $95 all in.
Yes, but from what I have read to clear the warning you need to disconnect the battery
