My Nissan Leaf Lease expires in July of next year, so I'm putting some thought into a used Model S to replace it. Specifically, I'm looking at the inventory on: Pre-Owned Model S | Tesla because they come with a warranty. There are alot of 2013 85kWh Model S's available there, and some have pretty low mileage. I'm hoping the price comes down further in the next few months, but even if it does, I still have some concerns about reliability, so I figured I'd start a thread specifically about the prospect of buying used directly from Tesla and my concerns, and see what people think. I have a number of questions that nobody seemed to answer when I emailed Tesla sales. I'm not surprised. Their priority is probably new car sales. I suppose I'll call them on the phone when I get closer to July, but for now, maybe I can get some answers from actual owners. For starters, in general, how reliable would you expect a 2013 Model S with like 25K miles and that's Tesla certified to be? With the Tesla warranty that they offer for the used cars, does the customer automatically get use of a loaner vehicle when their car is in for maintenance? Are there rules for loaner use? Is there any costs to the customer associated with a loaner car? Do the loaners in California have carpool lane stickers? I understand that the drive unit is a big issue with the Model S, and it sounds expensive. Once the car falls out of warranty, what is the total replacement cost of a drive unit? I've seen reports of an excessive tire wear issue due to a manufacturing flaw that effects wheel alignment. Is there a solution to this issue for used Model S vehicles? Would the Tesla inventory of used cars have the fix? What's the deal with the lack of front license plates? Does it block a sensor/camera, or is it just a looks thing? Does the car even come with front license plate mounting hardware?
