    In a month of so my Model X will be at 12,500 miles. Has anyone "paid" for the annual service check yet and if so what did it cost?

    As shown here, First year is $400, 2nd is $700, 3rd is $400, and 4th is $900, then it repeats.

    Prices are sky high for a car that needs "little to no maintenance."

    Side note, on a recent test drive, the salesman said service is not required for the vehicle. I doubled down and asked if the warranty was still valid even if I never got service for 8 years. He said correct. Truth to this?

    I understand some service is likely good and beneficial for the life of the car, but yearly seems excessive other than a tire rotation, etc.

    Hmm, I just had my first annual service and it was $500. That being said, they did check a lot of things, replace obvious stuff like wipers, and air filters, and one I didn't realize existed: transmission fluid.

    I certainly would not want to buy an ICE car that had not received any maintenance for 4 years and been driven the whole time. Tesla makes amazing cars, but if they say it should have maintenance once a year, I'm going to take them at their word.

    They probably upsold you on a alignment too, as that is $105, just like a typical car dealership.

    Yes, the annual service is not required for the warranty. This is actual a federal law, unless they can prove that a lack of service actually caused the warranty failure.

    They should obviously drop the "little or no maintenance" spiel from their sales pitch, then. It's no different than any other car I've owned.

    Isn't that the Service for the Model-S? I don't think they have announced a plan for the Model-X yet.

    Not exactly... Depends on how you want to spin it... I know plenty of ICE owners who still pop the hood to check their oil and such every time they fill up with gas so using that lens it's not hard to jump to "little or no maintenance"...

    It's not that I don't agree with you in principle but I won't go as far as to say "it's no different than any other car I've owned"...

    Just went for 12.5k first service this week (Sunnyvale, CA) - $550 with the alignment that I thought I might need. They also installed a spoiler for me at no charge and upgraded the software on my Chademo adapter. Seemed fair as I expected to pay for the spoiler install.

    Everything is relative. I would not consider the cost outrageous considering what you paid for the car. I have owned other luxury cars and could never get out of the service department after annual maintenance for less than $1,000
