My car died today. Dead. Dead. Alternator and other issues. I read somewhere that when trading in with Tesla they seem to care more about the model, year, mileage and tire condition than if the thing really runs - that they pretty much haul it away on a flatbed. While I don't want a dead car in my driveway if I could get $500 in trade-in come my M3 purchase in Aug-Oct I would be wiling to do that. Anyone had any luck with trading in a car that is dead or has real problems? My guess is it would be used for parts no matter what.
