Googled the VIN. Thing looks pretty perfect. Ugh I'm sick.
like i said, send me a link. I can look at the car and try to decipher what packages are on the car based off of what I see.
This trade-in quote Tesla gave me for my Denali is laughable.
The dealership that has this car has offered me $34k.
Tesla offered me $30,866!!
Between that and the potential of transferrable free supercharging and premium connectivity, it’s kind of a tough call.
I really like the idea of the extended warranty Tesla offers but...dangit!
Couple of notes:
Dont get excessively hung up on free supercharging. Theres not THAT much value in it, unless you do a LOT of roadtripping. By far, majority of your charging will be at home. For the average Tesla owner, Supercharging isnt something that is done regularly.
Premium connectivity is $9 a month, or the equivalent of 1.5 Starbucks coffees or one Martini. Again. Not a major cost and may not even be necessary if you have an unlimited data plan on your phone that can be used as a hotspot if needed.
My last 5 vehicles, I've sold on Craigslist for THOUSANDS more than what trade in offers would have been. And all sales went quite easily. If thats too much effort for you, you may have better luck using a service that helps you sell. In my area, we have something like this. CarLotz | Used Car & Consignment Dealer
I purchased my 2017 90D with 1200 miles last month through Tesla because I definitely wanted that 4 yr/50k warranty and wanted no issues with my EAP being intact.
How were you able to Supercharge before you had access to the Tesla app? This is something that keeps me from traveling to pick one up. Did your car have lifetime Supercharging?
Supercharging is tied to the car's vin. It will super charge and once you get the app and car ownership transferred, the cost is applied to the card or account on file that was used to setup the Tesla Account. At the time of this particular car's manufacture TESLA had done away with free supercharging and it was pay as you use. I have almost 5k miles in road trips and no issues in supercharging or plug share. Once TESLA Account is setup , you can go into history and see your previous supercharging.
I wasn’t sure if you’d be able to supercharge before ownership was transferred.
Does it just charge the previous owner since the system would still show them on file?
My understanding is that if the car has not been removed from the account the previous owner gets the charge. If buying CPO tesla gets the charge and then it trickles down to you. Need confirmation from others though. In my case I jut checked all the cards on file and I did not get charged for supercharging till I had the car in my account. I am guessing these supercharging sessions went into a black hole. Anyway it was about $80 in all.
I pulled the trigger on one from Tesla.

Now I just need to go to the dealership where I bought my trade in to get a better price than Tesla offered. They lowballed the heck out of me! No big deal. I’m super psyched!!!
Congratulations on new car , if your near a Carmax I'd give them a try at your Denali. Bet they will be 3k over Tesla. Your dealer is going to be frosty cause he missed a sale.
Just purchased a 2016 (AP1/pre-Nov) S 70D from Tesla w/48 mo./50K mile new car warranty (caveating the drivetrain, which is still original purchase-based). The pre-delivery communications were a bit challenging, as has been shared by others (and as my own pre-purchase research forwarded me about). The delivery went smoothly, though (relatively speaking), and I'm absolutely *LOVING* being a first-time Tesla owner.
Regarding "unexpected cosmetic damage", the pics on Tesla.com were accurate *externally* though there were a few minor *interior* issues (nothing that was a deal breaker). Tesla also cleaned the car up nice, all accessories were intact (including the owner's manual), the car had brand new tires, and I found an extra set of floor mats in the back.
All in all, I'm a pretty happy Tesla newbie!
UPDATE: I got my congratulatory email from Tesla with all the good info about next steps but wait!....the car is actually in FLORIDA when the page said it was in Roswell, GA. This means the drive will be 13 hours instead of 10. My advisor is looking into it but I'm a little bummed about that little snag. Hopefully all else goes smoothly...(maybe they'll deliver it for free because of the mistake!!)
What needs to happen to satisfy this transfer of warranty?(from Tesla website) Can a 3rd party dealer do it? Does it cost extra $?
Does the New Vehicle Limited Warranty transfer to the new owner if I sell my vehicle?
Yes. Your New Vehicle Limited Warranty will follow your vehicle and be transferred to the new owner when a vehicle ownership transfer is performed through Tesla.
Yes. You or anyone else can log in Tesla's website to create your own account with your own secrete password and credit card number and click on the ownership process.
This is not a DMV process. It's a process of submitting all documents to Tesla to prove that you are currently owning the car by submitting various papers.
I picked up my used S in Denver and drove to STL without problems superchargeing. Used SC on several trips before Tesla finally added car to my account.
