    Found a used Model S I like at a local dealership (not tesla). No extended warranty, so would like to get it inspected prior to purchase. Anyone know who in the Orange County area could do something like this?

    I doubt if I took it to the Tesla in Costa Mesa they would give two shits about me.

    I'm pretty sure Tesla will do pre-purchase inspections for you. Just call them and ask if you can bring in a third-party used Tesla for a PPI and see what they say. It might cost you $100-$150.

    called tesla, they do not do pre purchase inspections. i think they're too busy fixing all the problems with their own cars.

    Here's what I would do; it'll cost you $250.

    Go to your local Tesla Service Center. Speak with the Service Concierge (= front desk) and explain your situation.
    Tell them that you'd like an experienced Service Technician to have a look at the car in their free time, and that there's $200 in it for them.

    Hand the Service Concierge 1) your phone number on a piece of paper, and 2) a $50.

    :)
