    First real post on here, so hopefully I'm doing it correctly.

    I placed my reservation for the Model 3, but don't know if I can wait that long, so I'm looking at a pre owned Model S.

    What would you pay for it?

    2014 S85
    56,500 miles
    Multi coat red
    Black standard leather
    Tech pkg
    19" cyclones
    Parking sensors

    Drivetrain was replaced at 41k miles.

    If I could get it for less than $50k, would it be worth it?

    Thanks for any input or advice in advance,
    Brandon

    If it has no warranty I would not do it. The repair cost, when it does happen can be pretty spendy. I would say $48K or less.

    it's not a bad price, maybe offering 5% lower would be fair

    There is little data out there on owning a high miles Tesla w/o a warranty. I think it's hard for anyone to predict what will happen. If you approach it as an adventure (and you either are well capitalized or have alternative means of transportation), I think it will be okay.

    It is equivalent performance-wise to a brand new 70 (which is $62k after tax credit) except that it has slightly more range (265 mi vs 230 mi). New 70 has slightly better economy so the difference in range is less than you'd expect for a 70 vs 85.
    It is likely that it does not have any autopilot hardware. (In a 2014, tech package does not mean autopilot, it means all sorts of bells and whistles like vanity LED lights which you don't care for.)

    Take a look at the CPO pricing and make sure you get an extended warranty either way. I love my Model S and it's never given me problems but it's all new technology which can get expensive fast.

    Talk to your local Tesla CPO salesperson. Carol in Seattle is great. It's been a few months but she told us many cars don't get listed at all before they are sold. Go down and meet the rep, it'll be worth you're while, if only for education.

    What is the VIN? if it is above say 57,000 then it might have Autopilot. AP i would say is worth around $5K. Without extended warranty it is hard to put a pricing.

    Our car is about the same except for the leather seats and we have 29,000 miles. Tesla offered us $50,800 for a trade in, so I believe they are probably trying for $60,000. We did opticoat and have full bra on hood and other areas. I would look at CPO on their website too. Last I checked, I couldn't find much. Most were inventory cars and they were higher. I just mention the value we've been offered so you have a ballpark idea. Good luck.
