Well, similarly-equipped Model 3s on our site range from $55k - $58k that have sold. You also get a 1 year warranty from Tesla on CPOs, so the price is about market rate.

Tesla has done a lot to improve the Model 3 since 2018, and you could likely get a brand new Model 3 Perf without FSD for a couple grand more in December/January. Would probably recommend that if FSD isn't super important to you, and you're OK with waiting a little bit.

There are great things about buying used, but that isn't an outstanding deal or anything--just market rate.

Do you have a reference for the improvements to the Model 3 Perf since 2018? I'm aware of the heat pump, but don't know of what else might have been improved.

Tesla-Info actually has a pretty thorough list of hardware changes by year here:

In terms of creature comforts, things like the quiet glass and improved weather stripping have really helped with road noise, etc.
