I've been looking at buying a Model X and have numerous concerns about resale and depreciation. 1) It looks like the cars have depreciated something like 30% in the past year. 2) It seems Tesla is hurting owners ability to sell their cars for a decent price in several ways: a) Tesla destroyed the independent used car dealer market by not allowing warranty transfer on those cars. Which means your only option to sell your car back is to Tesla (gives them ability to set the trade-in price as they have no competition) b) Tesla makes it hard to sell your car privately because the warranty on a private party sale is also not clear c) Tesla won't sell an extended warranties on any used car (which is something German OEMs continue to offer) 3) So it seems basically you get ****ed on the back end with a Tesla. I have read on this very forum some people were offered 70% of new price after just 6 months of ownership by their local Tesla store. That is an egregiously low trade-in offer. With a BMW or Porsche, you can just take it to Carmax and get a better offer. At Tesla you can't because independent dealers can't transfer the warranty so that market doesn't exist. Am I correct in this, or have I been fed false info. It is enough to prevent me from buying a Tesla. I have always got solid resale prices selling my cars privately. If I am forced into a model of selling for rock bottom trade-in value then I am out because I would be much better off with an X6M or a Cayenne Turbo (when the new style comes out).
