    Hello TMC Family --

    Awaiting arrival of a Florida-bound MS in the coming weeks and I noticed that the link and web-references to Prepaid Service Plans are no longer available from the website, or at least as far as I can see from my local view (Central Florida, USA).

    Anyone else seeing a similar change?

    Thanks

    Still there. $1325 for 3 years, $2100 for 4 years, $4000 for 8 years. You will see a link on "My Tesla" along with how many days you left to order (60 days from delivery).

    Service plans

    I find them offered for the MS, but Im still waiting on my MX. Took delivery in mid Sept and Tesla still doesnt have the maintenance or extended warranties available. Kind of strange because X owners are now hitting their 12th month of ownership and many are having to schedule service. This seems like such a simple thing.....but Tesla still has not offered.

    Considering Chevy just announced the Bolt has practically zero maintenance (tire rotations and cabin air filters) for 150,000 miles, there might be changes incoming there anyway. Chevy just effectively delivered (or at least promised to deliver) the low maintenance EV Tesla's been talking about for years now.

    (Says the Tesla owner about to pick up his Model S from its 3rd annual maintenance visit.)

    I certainly hope so. It would go a long way to alleviate my warranty & expense fears if the Tesla maintenance chart looked more like the Bolt.

    I'm not seeing the service plans show on the My Tesla page either, but they were there 2 days ago. I asked the delivery specialist and she said the option should show back up when I take delivery in 3 days.

    The autopilot upgrade option seems to have disappeared about 24-48 hours ago.

    I'm torn about the service plans. Half of me wants to have the car live up to its billing a "virtually maintainence free". The smart half says " you spent too much money on a car not to have a expert tech look at it regularly".
    Wonder why autopilot option was removed??
    Hmmmm

    We'll see how long that lasts. Complex machines with lots of rotating parts and exposure to all weather conditions do require regular inspections, as the very least. Zero maintenance will not happen. Reduced, sure. Many years ago we had to lubricate the chassis every couple thousand miles or so, then came sealer lube. Next spark plug that lasted nearly the life of the vehicle. and so it goes...

    Zero? Nope. Especially for my vehicles I want an inspection every year or 12,000 miles or so. Probably nothing wrong, but road hazards, vibration and use can cause tightening etc.

    Overreaction? Maybe. Possibly I have spent too much time flying airplanes. For cars I like preventative maintenance too...

    My concern on maintenance isn't necessarily all about cost savings, but also hits on the fact that I know nothing about doing these things myself. Im a real hands on type, and have done a majority of my own service on my ICE vehicles......many years of shop class, loving cars and tools, having the space to work on them....it was a great experience. Now all of a sudden, I cant even find a fuse box, or the map to what they service. I couldnt even begin to diagnose a noise under the car, and the computer controls have now moved the car far beyond anything I could feel comfortable trying to fix. My only option....Tesla Experts, which is fine I guess....since Im past bruising my knuckles reaching into a greasy engine block.

    That being said, I want Tesla to fix my car....but please give us the option to buy a service plan, remove the worry, and let us focus on the fun driving part!! (or should I say the fun part where the car does the driving and we sit back and watch)
