  1. Volunteering at Tesla Delivery Centre

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    Official Tesla Owners Clubs have been doing this with delivery centers for a while now... It's up to the club to vet their members from doing this. (and up to the local delivery center to ask for help.)
  2. Why is Tesla not selling 2012 and 2013 Model S?

    Tesla Model S
    Yes... the warranties were better and the quality of refurbishment has been better... My wife's Roadster was CPO in 2013 and it came with a 37 month warranty... no mileage limits... the original S CPOs were sold with better warranties... They dropped it since, but I believe it's on a vehicle...
  3. Why is Tesla not selling 2012 and 2013 Model S?

    Tesla Model S
    Tesla does not sell CPO cars anymore. They are used/as is... If you are looking for a Classic S, they are primarily available via private party.
  4. ICE’d by a Tesla

    General EV Discussion
    Couldn't you ask the gym to "page" for the owner of the Model X to move their vehicle?
  5. Who got a front trunk (Frunk) mat?

    Tesla Model 3
    Used to be standard for LR RWD, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law just collected a LR AWD a few days ago in California Andy it is no longer included here. (Neither is a NEMA 14-50 and the USB charge cables for phones... all of which I received when I picked up my car in 2017)
  6. TACC Default Speed Issues

    Tesla Model 3
    My experience in the US is that it is fairly reliable in seeing temporary speed limit changes... HOWEVER, this is in the US, where Tesla probably has more experience... Dennis
  7. 2 years free supercharging

    Tesla Model 3
    This was published as being offered “quietly” for end of quarter... speak up and take delivery before 30-September. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law just picked up a LR AWD Midnight Silver Metallic 3 yesterday night.
  8. buying used from Tesla from one of the less-favored states

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    Also... There is a "fun" factor in long distance EV Roadtrips that you can get by flying and picking up the vehicle... I picked up brand new at Fremont, CA and went up to Sonoma, then back South to Southern California in 2013.

    there are costs to move inventory around. $2000 covers their cost to do so. Frankly the process is no longer CPO. Their used vehicles are used. At the moment, you might be better served by a private sale in your state.
  10. buying used from Tesla from one of the less-favored states

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    still some Americans here... Tesla moves from local to a more national inventory. It costs the company money to move inventory and it is still cheaper to pay $2k to ship to you than the 10% sales tax average in California. it’s also a matter of volume. More California owners trading in/up from...

    Tesla Model S
    Just google a quick battery study netherlands ev tesla - https://electrek.co/2016/11/01/tesla-battery-degradation/ As for Arizona service... Gruber Motors in Phoenix is an independent shop that is working on my wife's Roadster, but they're also working on S and others, especially after warranty...

    Thanks for the reminder... I haven’t updated my entries. For what it’s worth, my data is included there. There is also a Dutch study that is available Dennis

    To be fair. It’s also hard to find people in Montana. 😁

    At least there are several superchargers in the state.
  15. Model 3 with no home charging?

    Tesla Model 3
    If you do this with a Model 3, do note that sentry mode is a power hog. So, beware of the drain if you have that turned on. I was in a trip earlier in the Summer and lost 25 miles per day
