    For those wondering about service cost any, just has mine done for the first time in 2 years (car is 2 years old now). I skipped the 1 year service since it was already in the SC a lot for fixes at times and it doesn't get driven much.

    Note:
    The below included 2nd year service items + 1 year service AWD front & rear drive unit fluid flushes (that is usually in 1st year and 4th, etc.) + also a break cleaning service that they recommend in cold climates only so can subtract $150 from total if not somewhere snowy/salty/cold.

    Thanks! This is my plan as well, wondering if I’m saving much then by skipping the first year if they charge me for the drive unit flushes...

    yes my exact question too. Would having the 1st yr annual maintenance done decrease the overall costs or its gonna be the same regardless.

    basically it was about $500 per yr for annual maintenance.... hmmm is it me or does that seem higher than an ICE car?

    difference being maintenance in a Tesla is optional.

    Ah well skipping a year pushes sort of the big ticket item to the next year and so on sit it’s hard to save every two years. They structure big items ever 2 and 4 years.

    Like any car, maintenance is optional. Maybe more for a Tesla first few years but they recommend things for a reason I suppose. Good if keeping long-term I’d say.

    If you start the ESA after 4 years or 50k, maintenance is required DURING the ESA or things may not be covered.
