With regards to the warranty, Tesla offers an Extended Service Agreement that is transferable. So if you purchase the ESA you can sell your Tesla privately and offer essentially the same warranty as a CPO vehicle.
From Drive Unit Replacement Poll, maybe the Q revision is finally a good one? Those posts were from mid-2016.hasn't the DU issue been fixed in the newer cars? I had a DU replaced in my '14 but now with over 20k miles on my '15 I haven't had that issue, yet.
The 85 always had an 8 year unlimited mile warranty, it was the old 60 and 40 that had the 8 year 125k mile warranty.Quote from the post you referenced, "That means the 85 kWh Model S, our most popular model by far, now has an 8 year, infinite mile warranty on both the battery pack and drive unit. There is also no limit on the number of owners during the warranty period."
As I read it, that means unlimited miles during that eight year period. Otherwise, they would not have included "eight years" in the language. If it was truly unlimited, they would just have said unlimited. This is standard warranty language from every manufacuturer for a warranty that runs for a certain number or years / miles.
AFAIK, this was never the case for 60 kWh Model S.
Only on cars where the battery pack warranty was unlimited miles to begin with. This was not the case on the 60 kWh cars at the time the below was posted.
That's the sneaky part of their wording. They are increasing the DU warranty to match the battery pack warranty.
The Battery and Drive Unit Limited Warranty covers the repair or replacement of any malfunctioning or defective Model S or X lithium-ion battery for a period of 8 years or unlimited miles/km, with the exception of the original 60 kWh battery (manufactured before 2015) that is covered for a period of 8 years or 125,000 miles (200,000 km), whichever occurs first.
I do take one part back. I don't recall if there later came another 60 kWh Model S in 2015 or later that had the 8 year/unlimited mileage warranty on the pack and thus the DU, as well.
No it's not. It's the same as the battery warranty, which on currently sold as new models is 8 year/unlimited mileage. So, it stops at the 8 year mark.
On the 60 kWh models, the battery warranty and thus the DU warranty is 8 years/125K miles. You can see the battery warranty at https://www.tesla.com/sites/default.../model_s_new_vehicle_limited_warranty_2.1.pdf.
What's going on w/the disagrees?
