Hello. I too will be stationed in Humpreys around August this year, if all goes accordingly. I will be taking delivery of a model Y by end of June or early July and plan to ship it to S. Korea as soon as I can so that I can have it to use there.
Could any of you there now please do me and future owners, headed that way from the US, a favor by contacting the Tesla service center there and confirm if those of us under the SOFA status will get service and update support? The posts by Tina early in this thread was over a year ago and she hasn't replied to any inquiries since. It would be really helpful to know if Tesla Korea has officially started supporting SOFA status owners. I don't want to lose my warranty shipping it there and back when my tour is over.
I've tried to get info about this from several Tesla contacts here in the US, but so far have not received a legit answer. Just guessing and quoting of the standard policy prohibiting importing of Teslas resulting in voided warranty and no support of any kind.
I talked to Tina C. in email. She gave me a brief detail of her experience. However, the biggest huddle for me is... NO FUXXing Tesla employees answering my phone calls and emails!!! I am getting order pretty soon, and I should try to approach them more aggressively.
Also, I am still not sure if they 'OFFICIALLY' support SOFA status owners. Still have not heard any confirmed msg from either side.
