    I was browsing the inventory list and noticed they come with a 4 year 100k mile warranty
    Very nice.

    The builder still says, "4 year, 50,000 mile limited warranty". Could you link to one of these cars?

    Mistake on Tesla’s end or a new change?

    If it’s not a mistake, that would be very nice perk to distinguish between Model 3 and S/X.

    Tesla recently increased the warranty in Australia to 8 years/160,000 km ...

    Wish they'd make that retroactive (and in the U.S.)!

    The pictures of that one also show the older seat style, but the VIN is way too high to still have the older seats in it.

    Doesn't seem like it's a mistake. Sampling very thin in Canada, but here it is: Inventory | Tesla Canada

    All 4yr/160,000km.

    Could they be CPOs?

    Why inventory and not custom new? I hope that if Tesla makes a change, they extend all active warranty cars to the 100k mile (I'm a high mileage driver, so I'd run out of miles before 4 years but 100k would push that back to 4 years of no big expenses (with a car I wanted to keep for a long time)). I would definitely still buy an extended service after the 4y/100k.

    Does it only apply to new cars or does it extends older ones? I find myself driving the Model S way more and had put 25,000 km on it in the first 9 months.

    Same situation here. I'm very interested in knowing how a new inventory can sell at 100k miles warranty and not our custom cars.

    Usually warranty is a marketing investment by companies, but I for one be pretty pissed if I had already bought the ext'd warranty seeing this.

    Actually, why would I even pay a penny for ext'd warranty if Tesla offers it for free on new inventory cars?

    Maybe they are not selling. After all, most of them have demo/loaner miles. Driven like a rental.

    Maybe that’s cheaper than discounting them.

    Or maybe it’s just incorrect.

    In the link I provided above, the S75D has 100km to it. That is new.

    But they're correcting it, they've just went back to 80k on the two Model Xs and the S75D remains at 160k.

    I took screenshots of before the corrections were made.

    Just as a data point, the Australian change to 8 years only applies to new purchase...

    ... but they are offering an extended warranty for the same period, at a reduced cost, to existing owners.
