    So I bought a used 2012 P85 Model S from a dealership down in Tampa last month. I'm not really sure what kind of warranty is left on the vehicle or what's available to me in terms of service.

    What I do know is that I normally live and work in Florida and the closest service center to me is in Atlanta. This month I'm working in Maryland and I have three SCs that are within an hour's driving distance.

    Can I just call a service center to have them check the vehicle out and look for things wrong or potential failures? For lack of a better term, do SCs do inspections? The last thing I want is to have a problem when I'm not around a SC that might have been identified while I was in relatively close proximity to several.

    Most of the service centers have a wait time to get a slot. I'm not sure if they'll do an inspection for a car that's out of warranty (unless it has the extended warranty), but you could pay them to do one of the annual services.

    They'll go through it with a fine tooth comb, but many people say they're mostly unnecessary and overpriced -- Maintenance Plans
