Short Version: If your looking to buy a used Model S from a private seller then request that the current owner obtain a vehicle history report from Tesla before ownership change takes place. If you do not get this info at that time you cannot in the future. Not so short version: I purchased a used P85 from a private seller in Richmond VA. Once I got hit home there were some items I noticed that needed to be repaired under warranty (details can be found here http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/36584-New-Owner-of-Used-P85-and-battery-failure-just-occured-a-few-days-ago). A fellow forum member: zwede had a great suggestion to get the history of the vehicle. This way I can see if any other repairs were made prior to me. So I emailed Jonathan at the Rockville SC and he informed me that "Due to privacy laws, we are unable to provide repair history to my purchase of the Model S." I thought seems strange but maybe they are trying to protect the previous owners personal information, cool. So I reply well can I have the previous owner request this information. Jonathan replies "The previous owner would be able to request the history during their ownership". So i'm thinking well, they're no longer the owner so that doesn't help me. So I reply what is private about the previous maintenance/repairs? I figured maybe we can work around the private information such as the previous owners personal information. Jonathan replies "All maintenance/repairs that were made or performed to the Model S before I took ownership". I find it strange and kind if irritating that Tesla would not provide this information to a new owner. With more and more used Model S' becoming available in the market. I thought this would be beneficial to those in the market looking for a gently used Model S from a PRIVATE SELLER. If you buy from a dealer I would only assume you still could not get the vehicle history as the dealership is not the registered owner and if they were they couldn't obtain the history during the period of the previous owner that sold it or traded it in. For those of you selling your Model S in the near future would you be so kind as to obtain this history report prior to ownership transfer.
