    Buying from a non-Tesla dealer. Other than 2 keys, a manual, etc. what else should come with it? What type of cords should I expect?

    The dealer is a bit clueless about this car. It is a nice, low mileage example. In near perfect shape for a good price.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Definitely make sure it comes with the charging cable. Tesla's is called a mobile connector and it will cost you a bit to buy one if the car doesn't have it.

    Here is what it looks like:
    Tesla — Mobile Connector Bundle


    Oh, and you might call the nearest Tesla Service Center with the car's VIN. They can tell you the features it has and if it might be out of warranty for some nefarious reason (being totaled, etc).

    There should be a case that had your mobile charger and all the different charge adapters. Usually in the back trunk area.

    Don't forget the J1772 to Model S adapter. That comes with the car too (for US cars)

    Recent Model S vehicles come with the UMC (charging cable) and two adapters for the wall end: NEMA 14-50 (240VAC, 50A circuit, 40A continuous) and NEMA 5-15 (standard 120VAC, 15A wall plug). In addition, there is a J1772 adapter that goes between the car end of certain public chargers and the charge port of your S. Any other adapters are optional.

    Make sure the car isn't blacklisted if it is a salvage vehicle so that would also mean 3G/4G working and Supercharger access assuming it isn't a 40 or 60.
