    I have a bad (or good in this case!?) habbit to collect and save every piece of documents available!
    This a reason why I was able to make my point.
    I will save it all once FSD shows up, not yet. Fingers crossed.

    Fairly easy to collect if the company has physical assets in your state. You can have the sheriff seize assets, and auction said asset to pay the judgement. You grab the VIN of a model X in the store, go tp the sheriff, and file the lean, and they take the car

    I hope that you will never ever find yourself in a such position. My account was confirmed even by the dealer who sold the car to me if you would read the updated story.

    I knew you would say that even before I got to reading here.

    This is almost like Rich's missing car no one knows. Took the money, but no one talks... Until his mini-series went viral. When then, the escalation continued to screwed up for a while longer.

    Unfortunately, the patterns with customer stories and legal spitting new warranty exemption seems like I just woke up in a Mitsubishi car in their dealership.

    Scary as a customer how we are treated. We have to tell the world and story goes viral before someone response? That is customer service?

    Yeh yeh. Fanboys will say there is no wrong with Tesla.... Until it is your turn and be happy about the treatment.

    Hope you get them to resolve soon.

    Of course we are all on the edges of our seats with anticipation, but remember, it is still Tesla! I'm sure that if they called you to say they will put things right, that's what they will do. Who knows, it might take a week, but in the scheme of things, that would be nothing.

    I hate that feeling these days that 'the right thing' is 'whatever you can get away with'. It is a very unfortunate attitude that is to everyones' detriment. It attacks customers and suppliers equally because poor service turns customers into 'complaining, dissatisfied nuisances' who deserve what they get!

    This is certainly a good example of Tesla's inexperience and growing too big too fast. The disparate nature of their business model (e.g. delivery/sales advisors located in other states, etc.) lends itself to these types of mistakes and oversights.

    someone tell japolink about our yellow MCU borders, also about the broken rear motor mount, which they both claim to be cosmetic / wear and tear.

    I too purchased a used 2017 Tesla model S but I purchased it directly from Tesla, not a 3rd party. FSD was enabled when I made the purchase but it was disabled within 24 hours. It took 2 months for Tesla to turn it back on and only because I dropped the car off at the Tesla store and demanded they take the car back. It sat there for over a week before I heard back. It has remained on and working for 2 months now. Super frustrating and feels illegal.

    Everything is BACK now!
    Now, I feel like I want to be useful and help my fellow Tesla owners in the same situation and since I have Tesla experience team member's cell phone number on my speed dial, I am willing to serve as go-between and forward a legit complaint. Maybe set a new threat or poll? How and what should I do? I open for suggestions.
    P.S. I have asked the moderator to change this threat title to Resolved, as well I've sent email to Jalopnik.

    Congrats! We've learned that Tesla will do the right thing sometimes - but maybe only when you get the media's attention and turn your problem into a viral circus act.

    You may also be banned from buying new Teslas now.

    While Tesla worked on the restoration my car color was changed to Violent! I've contacted them back to recheck the configuration and make sure it was properly assigned, so next software update won't revert everything back. Now it displays red again, as well as shows FSD on my account page.

    Certainly if the original owner was given the option to accept a similarly optioned car in settlement - and he accepted it as part of his lemon law buyback - then it goes w/the replacement car. Most lemons though - dont cause buyers to want the same type car. Tesla shouldn't have to give away a free upgrade if that's the case. However there is a common law Doctrine called justifiable /detremental Reliance - which they (subsequent purchaser) might be able to hang their hat on - since Tesla was sloppy in leaving it enabled.
    ah - no NO ONE gets to use it, because it hasn't been activated for the General Public during the entire 4 years that Tesla has been selling it.

    Your dealer is the one to blame. Has he sold the car to you with or without FSD?

    If with he needs to make up for it, if without what do you want to claim? This needs to be in the invoice in writing of course, not verbally discussed.
