    Just saw Elon Musk's blog about the extended warranty. I sent a message about the 40 and 60 kwh models. What do you guys think?

    That's nice. But I feel so sorry for all those people that are not in Hawaii that own this car.

    I got the extended warranty also. I think they are referring to the drive unit only and not the entire warranty coverage so I doubt they will offer any refunds, but we can hope.
    for the 40s/60s 125,000 mile drive unit warranty, isn't it the same drive unit? If so, shouldn't it be unlimited miles also?

    Sorry for jumping in the Hawaii thread again - hey, I do spend a couple of weeks there every other year :) - but, the extended warranty is probably a must-have as it goes beyond the drivetrain. Imagine a failing touchscreen, door handles, pano roof or air suspension in year 6 or 7; that'd be a very costly repair without the warranty.

    At $2.5k up until a year ago, the extended warranty was a 'great deal'; at $4k now, it's a little excessive but...

    Agreed, the extended warranty covers other things than just the drivetrain. Still has value, just not the same value.
