    When buying a used tesla from non tesla dealer, what should I be looking out for?
    New potential Tesla owner here!

    - how many keys? 1 or 2?
    - 1 charger cable?
    - anything else?

    If you buy from a non-Tesla dealer, does the 4 year 50,000 warranty still transfer?

    The ev website prices are a bit high. Does anyone have success stories on buying a used Tesla at a dealer like Audi, Porsche, BMW dealer?

    Look at and around all the exterior panels to make sure nothing has been re-painted

    Check for swirls in the paint

    Tire tread -- may need replacing very soon

    Make sure it comes with extended warranty

    Has anyone come across used car dealers who say that their prices non negotiable? Supposedly they will not entertain any offers lower than what is listed. Has anyone actually got these dealers to move below their "smart pricing" or "internet pricing"? I found a couple that might work but sales manager says pricing is non negotiable.
